Some years ago it caused so much annoyâ€" ance that there was quite a general demand for the suppression of sueh tricks by an amendment to criminal code, â€" Nervous and superstitious perâ€" sons are always upset by reeeiving these ‘*endless chain‘‘ prayers. â€"Often they have not the time to make the copies nor the spare money to pay the postage, yet ithey are worried by the fear that unless they keep the chairn going they will ineur ill luck. .
