one thing and Arthur Munroe saw the funer? al going by and he told her that he saw several people that he knew with horses and buggies. Now, about three or four weeks afterwards there was somebody from Belle Cote--I can't tell you who it was who died--in those days the remains came into Inverness on the train and several teams went up to Inverness to escort the remains down. And as they were in the very same place in Belle C6te, they realized that they were taking the remains down and Arthur's wife realized that this is what had happened when Arthur stopped. Now, there was some? thing that, you might say, another one that could not be prevented. Now, there's another type of forerunner and I will give you an example of it. It's what they call making a wish concerning yourself with your wish so strong that it almost possesses kinetic energy. What I mean by that, you often hear the word "telekinesis," people with mental strength sufficient to cause bodies to float. Now, they claim that there are people who un? consciously have the power to project themselves into another space.

She thought it was funny that she didn't stay for the ro? sary. And af? ter she had finished the rosary she went up to say hello to Mary Belle but Mary Belle's door was closed and there was no? body in the room. So she didn't say a word, she thought: There's some? thing funny happening. And Mary Belle did get back on Monday night, she got back to Ju? dique to open school on Tuesday.
