PRAYER CHAIN SUPERSTITION
The writer has in common with some
other well known persons been receiving
what purports and is intended to be, an
endless chain" prayer arrangements; it
is said to be sent out by a certain (or an
uncertain) Bishop Lawrence, as its orig
inator, tho the real sender signs no name.
The writer hae had several already.'
Whether the Bishop Laweenc is a
Protestant, Catholic or Mormon, we have
no means of discovering. Only thegullib-
ly superstitions would answer such com
munication, the only possible resultant
good he:pg the further enriching of the
post otfib department It is supersti
tious in the threat that t'.jse w.io do not
do as it commjuJs. will meet with som
dire calamity or "terable" sccident.
Contarwise. he who accede to request,
rewriting it for nine diys and sending to
nine other persons will, on the-ninth day,
"exDerience some Grt at Joy." "Do not
brake the chain."
None of these have I answered, nor
will 1 do so and as inone of threatened
curses have fallen.
