buried him in that. That's the only one ever I worked on.... (I find that sometimes people who were around that a lot-- after awhile, they say, they start getting notions that something's going to happen-- someone's going to die in the neighbourhood.) Mrs. Clark: Of? ten he gets up and he'll say, "I dreamed such-and-such a thing, that somebody's going to die." (Trueman, is that true?) Trueman: Oh, yes, yes. Mrs. Clark: Very often. Trueman: All I've got to do is start dream? ing about boats, and a crowd around, and going and fish and all that. I'm pretty sure after that I'm going to hear tell of somebody I know pretty well, is gone. That's the way it used to be.... (How often did that happen for you, would you say?) Oh, I don't know. Dozens of times, I guess. Dozens of times. I used to tell her, "Well, won't be long before there'll be another one going." (And it would always be pretty well the same kind of dream.) Pretty well, pretty well. (Would you see the person who was going to die?) No, no. I wouldn't see nothing of him. (Or a funeral?) It was just a dream I had. Of boats, and people, and fishing-- stuff like that. (So it wasn't like you saw a funeral?) Oh no, no, no. None of that at all.... MARKET SQUARE Here's What We Do All Winter at the Craft Workshop....

Other than what you see in your dreams?) See! I don't see --I don't see nothing! If something came out there now, you might see it--I wouldn't see it. Or I wouldn't believe it. I wouldn't believe none of that stuff till I've seen it. To tell you the truth. I never believed in any of that stuff at all. I can talk about it and all that, but I don't--I never believed that stuff. (And yet your dreams.) Oh well, I'm dreaming all the time, as far as that. Mrs. Clark: He knows when somebody's going to die. (Your wife insists that you know when someone's going to die. Do you think she's wrong?) Well, I know there's some? body dying every day! Laughter. CBut I think she means somebody close to you or in the community.) Mrs. Clark: Somebody that we know--generally. Trueman: I don't know. I don't pay much attention to it, anyway. Sometimes I have these queer dreams and I'll get up and I'll tell her that anyway! Laughter. Sometimes they come true, some more times they don't! Mrs. Clark: You never very often tell me they don't come true.... I think that when he has those dreams, he's generally always right. (And what do you think, Trueman?) Mrs. Clark: He doesn't like to agree with me. Trueman: I wouldn't say all the time. I'll say 60%--I'11 split the difference. (60%?) Yes. KEDDY'S Sydney Hotel 600 KING'S RD., SYDNEY, N.S.
