[31] The last definition is not consistent with other parts of this book,
but I let it stand, as I find it among my automatic writings.

_Cannon_.

This dream denotes that one's home and country are in danger
of foreign intrusion, from which our youth will suffer from
the perils of war.

For a young woman to hear or see cannons, denotes she will be a soldier's wife
and will have to bid him godspeed as he marches in defense of her and honor.

The reader will have to interpret dreams of this character
by the influences surrounding him, and by the experiences stored
away in his subjective mind. If you have thought about cannons
a great deal and you dream of them when there is no war, they are
most likely to warn you against struggle and probable defeat.

attain connubial bliss. Affairs in the business world will
prove disappointing after you dream of rowing in muddy waters.
If the waters are shallow and swift, a hasty courtship or stolen pleasures,
from which there can be no lasting good, are indicated.

Shallow, clear and calm waters in rowing, signifies happiness
of a pleasing character, but of short duration.

Water is typical of futurity in the dream realms. If a pleasant immediate
future awaits the dreamer he will come in close proximity with clear water.
Or if he emerges from disturbed watery elements into waking life the near
future is filled with crosses for him.

_Candy_.

To dream of making candy, denotes profit accruing from industry.

pleasures and much love-making among the young and old.
Sour candy is a sign of illness or that disgusting annoyances
will grow out of confidences too long kept.

that he or she will be the recipient of much adulation.

schemes which will fill you with self congratulations.

wealth is animated by the desire of gratifying selfish and lewd
principles which should be mastered and controlled.

interested in causing you malicious trouble and disquiet.

enthrall your happiness.

but if you ride without accident you will be successful.

but if low, you will barely accomplish your purpose.

_Cardinal_.

It is unlucky to dream you see a cardinal in his robes.
You will meet such misfortunes as will necessitate your removal
to distant or foreign lands to begin anew your ruined fortune.
For a woman to dream this is a sign of her downfall through
false promises. If priest or preacher is a spiritual adviser
and his services are supposed to be needed, especially in
the hour of temptation, then we find ourselves dreaming of him
as a warning against approaching evil.

_Cards_.

If playing them in your dreams with others for social pastime, you will
meet with fair realization of hopes that have long buoyed you up.
Small ills will vanish. But playing for stakes will involve you
in difficulties of a serious nature.

If you lose at cards you will encounter enemies.
If you win you will justify yourself in the eyes of the law,
but will have trouble in so doing.

If a young woman dreams that her sweetheart is playing at cards,
she will have cause to question his good intentions.
