A psychic tale in which a lovely woman, dead some fifteen years, tries most earnestly to deliver a message to a young man who is very modern and very much alive. Alone she seems unable to effect her purpose, although he is trying his utmost to understand, and she summons to her aid the shapes of the dead and the--presumably--astral forms of whom some are still alive. --New York Times

The talk drifted away from the war: turned to prohibition; came back to it again. Lindsay answered Mr. Phillips's questions with enthusiastic thoroughness. They pertained mainly to his training at Pau and Avord, but Lindsay volunteered a detailed comparison of the American military method with the French. "I'll always be glad though," he concluded, "that I had that experience with the French Army. And of course when our troops got over, I was all ready to fly."

"Then the French uniform is so charming," Gratia put in, consciously sarcastic.
