SIGNS IN THE THUMB
WHAT THEY MEAN AND HOW YOU
M MAY LEARN TO READ THEM.
They 5trre aa an Indetc to the
' Character of the Individual The
Thumb Center" In the Brain Posi
tion of the Well Balanced Thumb.
The gypsies have always recognized
that the thumb is the most important
factor in delineaticfT special tendencies.
These nomadic people are the most in
tuitive on earth, and the fact that in
their fortune telling they often confine
their prognostications to the thumb
alone is .worth more than a passing no
tice. The fact that there is what is known
as the "thumb center" in the brain, rec
ognized by all surgeons, demonstrates
the immense Importance attached to it
by medical science. If there is a tend
ency toward paralysis the physician
notes it in the thumbs long before the
malady shows itself in other directions.
An operation to avert the calamity If
possible is frequently performed on the
thumb center of the brain, and the
thumb Itself is watched for results fa
vorable or otherwise. It Is a matter of
record that the thumbs of idiots and
ttinia montollr xv-tn lr si ro iniriersiZiMl.

characterless and usually cling closely
to the side of the hand. There have
been books written on signs in the
thumbs as denoting criminal instincts,
and detectives have been often moved
to consider seriously this phase of the
hand In making their deductions In
The iosition of the thumb with refer
ence to the rest of the hand makes ei
ther for or against favorable tenden
cies. If it is bound to the first finger at
a close angle, lying nearly parallel, It
Indicates a weak and cowardly nature.
People with such thumbs are not open
and frank In character, preferring to
creep along In the shadow and proht
by another's enterprise. If in connec
tion with this position it should be
very small, with vacillating, almost in
visible joints. It Indicates mental weak
ness. If, on the contrary, it flies out at
right angles or even farther it shows
want of balance in another direction.
The person will rush to extremes and
is independent and aggressive almost
to foolhardiness. Such ieople are dis
agreeable to associate with iu any en
terprise, as they always want their
own way and are "not subservient to
The well balanced thumb lies at an
angle of about forty-five degrees from
the - first finger. The joints of the
thumb also tell their story. The limber
jointed thumb which turns back from
the band is a misfortune to its owner.
He will never be rich by saving his
earnings, and if a fortune should be
left him It is likely to be soon dissi
pated. He Is a spendthrift by nature,
not only in money, but In thought. If
lie gets a hobby he rides it to death,
and his policy In all the affairs of life
will le, "If a little is good, more is bet
ter." And if he does not actually live
out all his impulses he will always
fret in the spirit aud grow rebellious In
resisting ms natural ieauein.ji.-3.
The stable Jointed thumb is every
thing that Is the opiosite to the first
type. And while the people with these
. thumbs are not so companionable or so
helpful to others they succeed by con
centration and a certain amount of
selfishness. They have the directness
of punse and the tenacity to carry to
successful Issue great enterprises. They
are stubborn, material, stolid, resist
less. The chimpanzee, which Las the
Land most nearly resembling the hu
man, shows the greatest weakness and
-want of Intelligence in its undersized
idiort thumb. And in the human race
the long thumb may le taken as indi
cating the more intellectual nature.
The shorter the thumbs the more bru
tal and i Mission governed the nature.
The relative length of the joints also
plays an important part. The first in
dicates the will power, the second de
notes judgment, reason and logic, aud
the third, which controls the- mount
of Venus, Indicates the affections and
love of fellow beings. In a well bal
anced nature the first and second
Joints are about of equal length. This
Indicates a wholesome adjustment be
tween the judgment and the will, ir,
however, the first Joint Is longer than
the second the will -exceeds the Judg-
ment, and the person Is likely to be -stubborn
and often acts without, rea-
son. When the second joint is tne
longer a person plans better than he
executes. In this way lie often gets
the reputation of being visionary and
is frequently full of schemes which he
lacks the will to carry out.
The third joint, or '-ham," of the
hand when too thick indicate? ungov
ernable passions and an inordinate
love o the opposite sex. Such a per
son will be -hail fellow well met." a
boon companion, but is likely tw neg
lect the intellectual demands both of
bis home and his other self.
When the second, joint Is thin and
small in circumference as compared
v.ith the first it is said to indicate
great tact and niceties in judgment
even to the splitting of a hair. Wheth
er the hand is firm or flabby it has a
modifying Influence in all cases.
A FLY IN A WEB.
The Way a Tiny Spider Iiuprlaoned
Ilia Disc Victim.
"One morning when busy In my
workshop." says a naturalist, "a large
fly. double the size of a bluebottle, was
caught in a spider's web in the win
dow close to where I was at work. It
was held by two of Its legs only, and
for some time the spider, which was
about the size of the fly's head, pro
ceeded to strengthen Its hold by at
taching numerous extra lines to the
two captive limbs, carefully keeping
out of reach of the others, which were
letting out in all directions in frantic
efforts to escape.
"During a short respite in the cap-
j tive's struggles the spider cautiously
approached and with its hind legs got
several turns of its tiny rope round
one of the limbs that were free. These
tactics were carried on till all the legs
were firmly bound. It then injected
poison into one of the legs. This soon
showed Itself, for its deadening effects
reduced the victim's struggles in a
marked degree. The poison paralyzes,
but does not kill.
"Shortly after a second bite resist
ance ceased, and the victor settled
down to suck the Juices of its fallen
prey. The struggles lasted quite an
hour. Next morning the fly was alive,
and the spider was still sucking out Its
lifebload." Chicago News.
The M limine Note.
One of the leading tenors in Moscow
was called upon to sing an opera in
which one note was much too high for
him. but he got a man In the orchestra
to come in just at the right time and
supply the note. In exchange the
tenor was to take him to supper. The
plan answered well, the applause was
loud, but the tenor forgot all about the
supper. Next time he sang the opera
he went to the front of the stage, put
his hand on his heart and opened his
mouth as wide as he could. His dis
comfiture was great when the expect
ant hush was broken by a voice from
the orchestra saying. "Where's my sup
per?" From Iskra.-
Some of the ordinary expressions of
the . Chinese are pointedly sarcastic
enough. A blustering, harmless fellow
they call "a paper tiger." When a
man values himself overmuch they
compare him to"n rat falling into a'
scale and weighing itself." Overdoing
a thing they call "a hunchback making
a bow." A spendthrift they compare,
to "a rocket" which goes off at once. I
Those who expend their charity on re-1
mote objects, but neglect their fam-1
Hies, are said to "bang a lantern on a
pole, which is seen afar, but gives no
Followed III Pipe.
An old Hungarian countryman bad
smoked the same pipe for more than
fifty years and as a natural conse-1
queuce had grown to love It as a .
companion. One day. however, his In- I
fant grandson smashed the pipe be-1
yond all hope of repair. The old man
was so broken hearted st his loss that
be hanged himself on a peg. In his
pocket was found a scrap of paper on
which was scribbled. "My pipe Is done
for. and I must go too." !
