I read 2 ghost stories in the book. 
   The first story is The Signalman. An out line of the story, there is a man who likes train in London. He heard story about a ghost walks in a tunnel of a railway, from a signalman. The signalman told that when he during work, he saw a ghost in a tunnel. After that, an accident happened in the tunnel, then the signalman saw a new ghost in the tunnel...
   Second story is The Ghost at the Trial. The story's out line,  a man was chosen jury of a murder case. However he saw the victim many times. He is already dead...

   These stories is ghost story, but ghosts aren't evil ghost, so I wasn't so scared. Also, a documents and pictures about a scene of the stories were very interesting for me.

I have two favorite drinks. I like Ginger ale. This is a carbonated drink, and the drink's taste smacks of ginger. I really like Ginger ale's taste, but I don't like ginger dishes. In addition, I like cafe au lait. Especially, I like sweet cafe au lait very much because I don’t like bitter drinks, and I like that I can make cafe au lait better than commercially available one. Also, I don’t like alcohol very much. I feel sick when I drink alcohol, so I can’t enjoy alcohol with my friends. I think that is really disappointing. I want to be able to drink alcohol.

Device family's grandmother, and Jannet's sister says about we are a witch in the witch trial. Also, Jannet attests that "Device family is a witch" in the trial.
   The story is so scary, because many people were killed without enough reason, and the story is nonfiction. In addition, Device family broke down by the witch trial, the story made me so sad.
