Every now and then an epidemic
of "chain-prayer" cards descends
like measles on this community.
Since I have no faith in such "bless
ings" and alway "creak tne cnam,
I am sending you a sample of the
cards that came in my mail.
All who are superstitious enough
to try for the $16.00 may have my
place in the "chain!" Anyway, if
ovorvhndv in Wavnesville will onlv
hnv the thirteen postal cards, our
U. S. government will be nearly
$400.00 better off. And that would
help like the prayer-card.
Earnest daily prayer would be
ar more effective. The postal
card variety makes threats and
promises about which the writer
"Oh. Lord be merciful unto all
nation and unto us."
This prayer must go around the
world and if you fail to send it
misfortune will create in your
A a noon as vou get it copy and
nend to 13 persons and in the 13th
day a great happiness will fall upon
van and vou will receive sio.uu.
Thev sav one was made lun oi
fthis card) and on the 13th day her
daughter went blind.
Pay attention to this card and
the Lord will bless you. Don't let
this prayer stay in your home.
