Synopsis:
A man removes hex signs from his barn against his wife's wishes and is plagued by a series of misfortunes. She begs him to allow her to restore the symbol to ward away evil but he refuses to subscribe to such superstitious nonsense. He takes gravely ill and is lying on his deathbed when, one morning, he gets up no longer sick and opens the morning mail to find he has won the lottery. When he runs out to show her the check, thinking his string of bad luck was merely coincidence, he is shocked to find her...just finishing off the paint on the new good luck symbol decorating the barn.
