Carolyn Wells makes excellent use of spiritism and the ouija board in creating an atmosphere of tense mystery, yet she does not allow her story to leave, even for a moment, the realm of things explicable by the most mortal of us. "A mystery story with a trap in it for the unwary, with suspense and excitement in plenty, and a satisfying dénouement."
"No, Peter, not till you come back."
"But I want to kiss you, and I can't, I suppose, until we are engaged. Oh, can I?"
"Of course not! Take your hand off my hand."
"Lordy, can't I even touch your hand?"
"Not with that ownership grasp! I am afraid of your possessive qualities, Peter."
"Meaning just what?"
"Oh, that if I do give myself to you, you'll own me so--so emphatically."
"I sure shall! And then some. Don't imagine, my child, that I'll accept you with any reservations. You'll be 'mine to the core of your heart, my beauty'! Bank on that!"
"I do,--and if I'm yours at all,--it will be that way. But wait till you come back. There's time enough. I suppose there's no chance for letters?"
"No; not after the first few days. We'll be out of reach of mail very soon."
"And you're returning?"
"I want to be home for Christmas. Kit thinks we'll make it, but Blair is some doubtful. So, look for me when you see me."<
