The data are protrusions from burials

Fort relates the story of a phenomena reported in the Port of Spain (Trinidad) Mirror and Port of Spain Gazette that began Nov. 12, 1905 in Mrs. Lorelhei’s boarding house, Queen Street, Port of Spain. A house was pelted with stones, and stones fell inside the house as well. “Objects were thrown about. Chairs fell over, got up, and whirled. Out of a basket of potatoes, flew the potatoes. Stones fell from unseen points of origin, in rooms. A doctor was quoted as saying that he had seen some of these doings. He had been visiting a girl, who, in this house, was ill.”
