man, who is a cunning player on the harp, and
it shall come to pass when the evil spirit from
God is upon thee, that he shall play with his
hand, and thou shalt be well.’”

An evil spirit! That is what I am always
suspecting! While the children are dancing, my
mother-in-law comes in in order to fetch the little
one, and when she sees them, she stands still,
astonished. Then she tells me that just now,
down in the village, a lady of good family has
been seized with an attack of frenzy.

“What is the matter with her?”

“She dances without stopping, has dressed
herself as a bride and fancies she is Burger’s
Lenore.”

“She dances, and then?”

“She weeps in terror of death, who she
believes will come and take her.”

What lends a darker shade to this tragedy is
that the lady has occupied the same house I
live in now, and that her husband died in the
same room where the children are noisily
dancing.

Explain me that, O doctors, psychiatrists,
psychologists, or acknowledge the bankruptcy
of science!

My little daughter has exorcised the evil spirit
