Synopsis:
A sister worries that her brother is under too much stress and so asks a doctor to write a prescription for some medicine. The doctor does so, but the old-fashioned druggist has only a bottle with the correct label, but after the doctor examines it, he realizes it is not the correct substance. After the contents have been analyzed, the results indicate that for the past several weeks, her brother has been slowly digested alive.

Synopsis:
An artist draws a frightened face with a circle around it. Thinking this odd, he goes for a walk and comes upon a grave-stone cutter who looks like the picture he drew carving a tombstone with his name on it. The stone-cutter laughs it off as coincidence but wants to show his wife the picture. It turns out the artist and the stone-cutter's wife were once romantically involved and she wants to be so again. The stone-cutter catches them in a passionate embrace and caves in the artist's head with a mallet. The end of the story shows the reader looking at the stone-cutter's frightened face through the open circle of rope at the end of the hangman's noose.
