230 DEATH AND ITS MYSTERY
The following account was sent me by a reader of an article, " La Glane, " in "La Nouvelle Mode" for May 26, 1918 :
I dreamed that I was on my vacation, at the place where I usually go, but the room which was given me was different from my own, and behind a clothes-press I saw spreading flames. A stupid dream, I forgot it.
Six months later I reached my destination. I was led into a very small summer-house. Although I had never seen it before, I recognized, this little corner which was meant for me. The clothes-press, in the same spot, recalled the fire. I spoke of it and they reassured me - in ten years no fire had harmed the neighbourhood. I had begun to lose my fear, when, toward the fourth week, the toesin sounded. An immense fire consumed a farm not far from my dwelling, made worse by the straw and rubbish, and even licked the wall where the clothes-press stood.
