Description

The more man knows of natural laws, the keener he is about the supernatural. He may claim to have laid aside superstition, but he isn’t to be believed in that. Though he has discarded witchcraft and alchemy, it is only that he may have more time for psychical research; true, he no longer dabbles with ancient magic, ( or does he ) but that is because the modern types, as the ouija board, hollywood horror, and haunted houses, entertain him more. He dearly loves to traffic with that other world of which he knows so little and concerning which he is so curious. Perhaps just merely living life, or possibly an increase in class consciousness, or unionization of spirits, or whatever, has greatly energized the ghost in our day and given him both ambition and strength to do more things than ever. Maybe “water cooler conversation” has been discovered on the other side as well! No longer is the ghost content to be seen and not heard, to slink around in shadowy corners as apologetically as poor relations.
