Many Historical Events
Claimed to Have Keen
foretold by Her, in
Paris, December 26 Madame dc
Thebes, famous as an necrologist and
clairvoyant, died Sunday at her coun
try residence in Moung-Sur-Lalre, at
the age of 72 years. The real name of
Madame de Thebes was Anna Vlcto-
;rlne Snvlgny. She was a well-known
1 personality In Parts and possessed In
1 numerable secrets concerning the
private lives of men and women of
Madame Thebes claimed to have
foretold many great events In history,
Including the present war. It had
been her custom for many years to Is
sue an annual "almanac" In which she
predicted the future of the new year.
In 19i:t, the year before the great Eu
' ropcan war, she published her predic
tions for 11114. Among other things
i "War will continue to menace the
I world, as the planet Mars will pre
dominate throughout the year. Pro
found conditions amounting to a po
lltical upheaval will take place In
Germany and the national life of that
nation will he completely transform
ed." In August, this year, Madame Thebes
declared peace would come suddenly
and unexpectedly in Europe before
I!il7. "The roar of guns will ceasn
overnight," she salt), 'and soldiers on
both fronts will be called home to
peaceful pursuits. Fate haa bo de
creed It." '
Mme. Thebes wan known as tho
Mother Shipton of modern Paris. She
t lainie I to have predicted the Boer
War, the great Charity Bazaar fire In
Paris, the Balkan War, the San Fran
cisco earthquake, the death of Queen
Viitoria, the assassinations of I'resl

and the death of President Faure.
It was" said she read the tragedy in
the hund of the Marquis de Mores
which was to coat him his life. That
was more than 20 years ago.
Everywhere In her apartment In
Paris were plaster casts of hands,
among them being those taken from
hands of the elder and younger Dumas,
Christine Mlsson and Emma Calve. It
was said that Quern .Margherlta and
other royal personages consulted Mme.
Thebes. In order to maHter the Inner
mysteJries of the human hand the noted
chiromancer pursued all kinds of In
vestigations in the hospitals, dissec
tions and Jails of Paris.
She believed the futuro is indicated
in the lines of the hand. She said the
future could be read In both hands.
"The left Is the fate," she said. "It Is
the hand in which the future is indi
cated; the right is the will, the hand
in which that future is modeled ac
cording to the force of character pos
sessed by the Individual."
Of her belief In astrology Mme.
Thebes once said:

should influence humanity than that
the moon should provoke crises In the

Nothing, in our opinion, is so liable
to seriously effect the present satisfac

crowding of the market.
Our advice to you Is, bring each
wagon load to market Just as soon as
you get It ready. Don't delay until
you get your whole crop, or the most
of It stripped. To do so will be a mis

good for us.
We Are For What Helps
