a If you walk backward at midnight carrying a candle and a looking glass In which the image of the lady or gent you are doomed to marry will orpear just as the clock strikes 12 and three or four weird shapes bump Into you and knock you over. wait a moment before you decide they're ghosts. If one of them says, 'Gitthell outten here before I bump ya off." it's highly probable that the fleeing figures are not real ghosts but more likely gangsters making a Quick getaway. Don't have anything to do with a ghost that says for you to come down to the street and meet a friend That's a hoodlum who wants to take you for a ride or maybe- to kidnap you and hold you for ransom. No. you've got to be careful nowadays Don't iilieve In a graveyard ghost unless he trings his grave with him undet one arm and the tombstone under the other. And even then he may be a raeketeerwho Intends to smash all your windows. And. anyhow, things have got so bad up here on earth that the ghosts probably prefer to stay in hell.
