Synopsis:
A man sends forth his ghost-soul to strangle the man who's testimony put him behind behinds. After the killing is done, the soul attempts to rejoin the flesh, but the soul of man who has been killed pursues him and prevents the soul from reentering the body. The jailers are baffled when they find the prisoner dead the next morning and figure that he must have died at about the same time as his victim.

Synopsis:
A man chooses suicide as a means to escape the predictions of a tiny clockface figure that accurately predicted the stock market so as to gain him wealth. When the figure predicts his death, he becomes so unnerved that he shoots himself rather than keep guessing as to the form his impending doom will take.
