Kxploiuiug n Mystery.
"Talking nbout warnings." said the
doctor, "you would be surprised to
know how many people believe in them
In these enlightened days, and actual
ly are guided In Important affairs by
some such absurdity as a clock strik
ing thirteen, or a black spider running
over a white cloth,"
"How do you nccount for It, doctor7"
"Tho leaven of old Egypt They In
herit those fancies Just ns they take
their hair and eyes from some remote
ancostoi. When you see a group of
breathless children listening to some
weird yarn told by nn elder. Just say
to yourself, "that will be folk-lore In
the future.' "
"Have you ever met with any In
stances of those so-called warnings?"
"Yes, and seen tho Impression they
make, and I must Fay there Is some
thing very impressive about an un
usual happening at n deathbed or on
a solemn occasion. I was called to see
a man die, and as I stood with his fam
ily about his bed, there came three dis
tinct raps back of a large mirror In
the room and Instantly it was Bhlv
ered to fragments. Naturally we were
all startled. Theie l.s supposed to be
some special significance In three raps,
and tho breaking of the mirror Is popu
larly believed to mean sorrow to its
possessor. The family at once accept
ed the event as a sura Indication of
death, and It added poignancy to their
grief, nlthough they knew before that
the enso was hopeless."
"Did you discover how It happened?"
"Yes. I was nlono In the room the
next day when nil was over. A white
cloth covered the bioken mirror, but
(m looking back of It I found that the
point of a larso nail v.hlch had been
driven in the wall of tho next room
had pencttated through and cracked
the glass So the message of the three
mysteilous raps was accounted for by
purely human ngency But I did not
tell tho family they seemed so settled
in their conviction that It was a super
natural warn ng" Detiuit Treo Press.
