Stetson Kennedy asks Jack about other superstitious tokens. Jack never has been able to tell why people tie dimes or strings around their necks--if he has a dime he spends it. A nutmeg on a string around one's neck is supposed to be good for fluttering heart, but Jack doesn't believe in it. He has heard that carrying a potato in your pocket will cure rheumatism, but doesn't believe that either. Jack doesn't have a wife, but Berry Johnson has been married, and says that the way to make your wife be true to you is to first be true to her. Women keep dimes around their ankles to keep from being conjured, but Berry doesn't believe that it works. A leather strap around the wrist keeps the cramps out of one's arm, a fact which has been confirmed by Berry's doctor. Berry believes in ghosts because the Bible says there are evil spirits. He has been through the hot steam of ghosts but has never seen one. He avoids graveyards because they're "made for the dead."
