The colonel, who is br no means a
crank, but a man of ood hard common
' sense. In the book strongly defends
the oft-dlsoussed theory of relncarna
, tion, - and certainly , tells some very
' startling and unuanal stories, and his
methods of peering into the psyehlo life
. or the people he used as mediums are
unique. . . ! '
He hypnotised a number of persons
and made them believe they were 10, 10
. and even 10 year younger than their
ctual ages. -
Some remarkable, experiments were
made wittt a woman of 46. who was
. hypnotised, and to . whom It- waa 1 sug

' While la the hypnotlo state she de
scribed incidents in her life that oo

her confirmation at the age of 14 and
' described her theft of a sou from her
grandfather. Gradually aha relapsed
Into baby language, - and at last her
..words became unintelligible and she
" could not make signs,,.-
' - Colonel Roc baa went on with his ques
tion and then the woman replied in
t the deep voice of a man. She said he
name waa Jean Bourdon, and that a be
' ;was a villager. ' - , , )
'.Colonel Roohas caused Inquiries to be
, made and found that a man of that
name 'had lived in the village the woman
''mentioned as far back as lilt. After
three quarters of an . hour's further
-questioning the woman replied in the
voice of an old woman called Carterot.
Experiments were also made with two
, ether women, and both gradually . grew
more childish In mind and voice until
