Death and its Mystery – After Death – Camille Flammarian
The following manifestation, eight days after death, was strange enough, but such phenomena are not very infrequent. I am taking the account from a letter sent me from Paris in August, 1900, by some one living near the house in which my brother's publishing business is conducted.
My wife's maternal grandfather, who died on February 13, 1880, was living in the home of his son-in-law, M. S-, librarian of the Polytechnic School. About eight days after his death the bell in M. S- 's room, on the ground floor, began to ring. This room had been closed since the burial. The whole family was then at table in the dining-room, also on the ground floor. The servant was in the kitchen on the first floor. As soon as this noise was heard, every one ran into the room. There was nothing unusual about its appearance, but the bell-cord was still in motion. The same manifestation occurred again and again-three times, at intervals.
