CHARACTER TOLD ON PALM OF HAND Easy Lessons in the Double Art of Chiromancy and Chirac aomy. INFALLIBLE INDEX TO BEHAVIOR Tbe Mounts and the Lincs--IIow to Tell an Orator, a Thief and a Dnde. Tbe Funny Finger, the Religious Bump and the Obstinate Thumb. From the Globe-Democrat. At a great political mass meeting last winter one of the speakers held up his hand, palm outward, to the audience. It was only for two seconds that the great, muscular white palm was spread out before them. Hut in that brief space of time all saw it and felt it. The speaker paused In the address. He had made his point. He had de clared such and such a thing to be the truth, and before the audience he spread out that palm In noble gesture. As he lowered his hand a sigh of re lief passed over the house. The audi ence settled back well pleased and the speaker went on to the next point In his address. But the principal point had been made, and that by a palm. That perfectly well-balanced hand could say words which no tongue could tell. Mr. Blaine was at one time the very earnest friend of a statesman no less renowned In history. Once, getting a view of that statesman's hand, Blaine Is reported to have fallen Into a moody spell. "I did not know he was a thief," he was heard to mutter, "until I saw his hand." And Plalne, the man who could run the whole gamut of politics and die without ever havin? befn a millionaire, had no use for "a thief." The hand, whether by chlrngnomy or chiromancy. Is surely an Indication of a man's leanings. Chlrognomy is the shape of the hand, whether long or short, or thin or thick, or fat or lean. Chiromancy deals with the lines upon the palms and the markings. Both to gether mnke palmistry, and palmistry Is a science that grows instead of di minishes In favor. The "thief" mount of the hand is th elevation upon tbe Inside of the pnlm at the base of the forefinger. It is the Mount of Juptter. And If too well de veloped to look symmetrical uiion the hand It means the taking of property that does not belong to one. In a politician it might mean a working of selfish Interest to moneyed benefits. In the street arab It would mean the mak ing of a pick-pocket. An absolute de pression at the base of the forefinger means too much honesty. Honesty that slights one's self. POINTS WORTH NOTIXO. A mount at the base of the middle finger means the hoarding of money. A depression at the same spot means a spendthrift. There are people who have an elevation here upon the Inside of the hand thut almost deforms the palm. Such people hoard their money, while others spend. They may not be "spongers," but when they put down money they are going to see it come back In some form. A mount at the base of the third fin ger stunds for devout ness.or, in a broad internretation. devotion to a cause. The candidate. William J. Bryan, has that mount very lurgely developed; and we know he Is a good Presbyterian. He probably came of a church-going peo ple for generations. Clergymen hove a decided bump at the bane of this third finger. The elevation at the little finger the little cushioned pad, as It appears to be slgnllles generosity. McKlnley has this well shown. He Is a generous man almost to prodigality. One hand has always been in his pocket for the needy. A man with a very broad pad here will neer have anv money, and one with a very high pad will spend It all at once as fast as he gets it. or, ratner,' win give 11 away or bestow it upon some one or something. It is the bump that allows no accumulation of riches. The Inventor has a bump on the outer and lower side of the hand. This in Edison and Nicola Tesla Is so pro nounced as to make the hand wedge- shaped. There Is a very curious development to be fuond upon the hands of many people. It Is upon the mount at the base of the thumb. This is the Mount of Venus, and a high protuberance here signifies a dude. Men who dress ex tremely well have always a bony ap pearance upon this Inside lobe. It Is a very pronounced development of this nortion of the Alount or venus. Should the entire mount be full and extend towards the middle of the hand It means a tendency to stay at home and entertain, to dress well and bo a society man. Ward McAllister's Mount of Venus took up one-half of the palm of the hand. David B. Hill has just such a pronounced lobe. But In his case it Is neutralized by a very strong, mentality line, which we shall talk about later on. That line comes In the reading of the palm. At present we are talking about the shape of the hand. WHAT BIO THUMBS MEAN. People with big thumbs have awful will power. Their minds predominate over matter, and over will itself. Hyp notists have such thumbs. Two big thumbed men are Whitney and Cleve land. The former enuld have been a hypnotist without difficulty. If Whit ney looks at you and explains a thing you believe It somehow. That is, If you get within range of his direct glance. He has hypnotic power in the lines of his face and In his eyes. His thumbs show great mind power. A man who cannot be swerved. .. The forefinger Is one of the surest keys of the mind, most certain to un lock the mental secrets. Select the fore finger of the left hand, because It Is less apt to be defoimed by work or using the pen. A broad, flat forefinger means a love of Justice. A big. round forefinger, larger at the tip than in the middle, denotes a tendency to measure all things by Judicial standards, an over reached Justice. Where you see a man with this club-like forefinger you will find one who can not temper Justice with mercy, a stern Judge. Chief Jus tice Fuller hns one of these big fore fingers, but fortunately the bump of generosity at the mound of the finger Is so larg? thct It overbalances this great Justice Anger, making it not out of proportion in the character. A crooked forefinger means an ability to Judge fairly, and a Capering one means that the sense of Justice Is swayed by appearances and circum stances, even by the weather. The love of fun Is aliown by the tip of the middle ftni-vr. In Chauneey M. Depow this middle finder Is flat, almost spatulate. In Fiilte of efforts to make It taper like other fingers. This shows a high sense of hii'nor. All the funny men have big middle fingers, spreading at the ends. Those with artistic ability have, nearly always, the third finger large and rounding at the very tip, never tapering. Some very artistic hands have pointed fingers, all except the third finger, which spreads round. Thin means strong sense of the beautiful. A long third finder means a very strong appreciation of art, letters and science. When you hear an orator speak, no tice the length and shape of his little finger. Eloquent men have big little fingers. If a little finger Is nearly ns large at the end as at the base, tt means a marvelous flow of speech. If it Is ab normally lonir, It means logic and all that to i fh '70- 1 eakln.T. T. C riaf !i : i-ve rti. !. t- h I ' n-t u ip-i '.r. Tin. t I I.' aujf h. ! l.-.cks the necessary vanity lo uphold i him, and is not ofteu gifted with love of fun, a necessary adjunct for a suc cessful orator. THE MONEY LINE In the lines ot the hand you will several pronounced ones. Notice flrkt the one that runs downward from the third finger. If It is a broken line, tt means that you will have money and lose it. It Is the line of wealth. In the hand of Caivln S. Urlce It Is un broken from start to finish. In a cer tain well-known turfman it runs in many little leaps, meaning; spent for tunes and many made, i ne i.ne is never very deep, but there's money along It. The line of tbe heart stai ts rrom below the little finger and ex tends to the mount under the fore finger. An uninterrupted course signi fies falling In love and happily tor life. If broken, there will be l.ve troubles, and if cut into death will in tervene. At a lawn party at Clivedon. the English home of William Waldorf As tor, a palmist was introduced upon the lawn to read the hands of the guests. Everybody importuned the host to have his band read. Consei.ting at iast. Air. Astor spread out his smooth palm tor the palmist to decipher. "The first thing I tee Is a severing of the heart Una at middle age," said she, incautiously. "And that imans ," demanded the millionaire, with Knitted brows. "That you will lose cm ve-y dear to you soon," said the frank palmist. "Leave the grourds," older. d Mr. Astor, his brows sc wllng at the palm ist so heavily that she Interpreted the look and beat a retreat as early as pos sible. "And within two months," says the man who tells the story, "Mrs. Astor was dead, though then enjoying gooJ health." The line of mentality Is the ore ly ing below the line of love. Th's was very deep In Artemus Ward, who de clared he "never thought a ttiought," and Josh B llii g3, who could r ot ".pel," had a positive furrow. But the wit ticisms of both re: ain because of that grain of truth which makes all tilings powerful and great. There was men tality there. The line of I'fe extends ground th? thumb.

The small lines crossing the big ones mark off modifications of the trnlti snd tendencies, ami by the depth end length of the lines and the si ape of the bumps a pretty fair idea can be formed of any man, whether he be a politician, a wit or a convict The lines will show.

Among the tens of thousands el women who apply to Mrs. Pinkham for advica and are cured, are many who wish the facts in their cases made public, but do not (rive permission to publish their names for reasons as obvious as in the following, and no name is ever published without the writer's au thority; this is a bond of faith which Mrs. Fink ham has never broken.
