Mr. I. S. Frost, 8 Ferrestone road, Hornsey, N., told a queer story about some coal he recently bought:
“When big lumps leapt out of the fire and broke the kitchen windows,” he said, “we thought some sort of explosive had got mixed up with the coal. But after other lumps smashed pictures and damaged the furniture in the dining-room, we cleared all the coal out into the garden. Last night some of it reappeared in the house, and we heard it dropping at the top of the stairs. It seemed to be moving up from below.”
Sir William Fletcher Barrett. F.R.S., one of the founders of the Society for Psychical Research, told a Daily Mail reporter that many such cases of unexplained phenomena had come under his notice. “Phenomena of this kind,” he said, “come under the head of Poltergeist (a spirit which makes its presence known by noises), and the fact has been established that remarkable manifestations of the sort do occur. I personally have investigated a good many cases.”
