Vol. xix. Astoria, Oregon, Sunday Morning, July 22, 1883. No. 97. JTBEL-TATYR lines and SHAPES. ' The principal lines of the hand are easily remembered. The life line, which runs round the base of the thumb, the line of the head, which begins. alongside of the line of life (sometimes joining it), and crossing the middle of the palm; and the line of the heart, which goes from one side of the hand to the other nt.thc base of the fingers. If the line of life- is of a ruddy color, long and unbroken, extend ing nearly or quite down to the wrist line, it foretells good health and long life. If it be broken in any point it denotes severe sick ness; if short, early death; if double, it shows remarkable strength and vitality. The lines encircling the wrist number the years of life, one marking thirty years. If a character like the sun oc curs on the life line, it denotes the loss of an eye or blindness; and each cross or knot denotes some misfortune or diJliculty, great or small according to the size of the mark. The little lines arc the lesser cares and troubles. Wavy lines in the ends of the fingers or elsewhere, foretell death by drowning. A crescent-shaped mark below the little finger and below the line of the heart de notes insanity. A well-defined short line joining the life line in dicates marriage. If no such line appears, the person will remain single, unless there be a short line or lines on the side of the hand below the little, finger, as these also denote the number of times married. The lines extending down between the third or ring finger and the little finger to the line of the heart, numher the loves of; a lifetime. If but a single line is visible, and that is deep and clear, the person will love faith fully and warmly. A long and well-defined line of the head promises intellectual power, but it may be too long; as, if it extends quite to the edge of the hand it indicates too much calculation, craft, meanness. It should end under the third finger or there abouts. If it is forked or double toward the end it denotes decep tion or double-dealing, though in a hand otherwise good, it may mean only extreme reticence or shyness. When this line is very short and faint it shows stupidity, foolish - ness. If the line of the heart is long, extending from the edge of the hand below the little finger up be tween the first and second fingers, it indicates an affectionate dispo sition, and, also promises well for the happiness of the possessor. If it sends down short lines toward the headline, it shows that affec tion must be founded upon re spect; but if these small lines go upward, love is more a passion and impulse. When the line of the heart is broken, it denotes in consistency. But judgement must not be formed from an' one ap pearance or line of the hand, as there are many things to be con sidered. We should look at the left hand chiefly for honors, riches, loves and misfortunes, and in the right for whatever pertains to health and length of days. All lines, if pale and wide, tell the ab sence of the quality attributed to that line, or the existence of the opposite quality. For instance, a pale, wide line of the heart indi cates coldness or even cruelty. When the lines of the left hand are clearest and ruddiest its pos sessor resembles his mother1 both mentally and physically. In the practice of the art of palmistry some knowledge of physiognomy is of great advan tage; indeed, the two sciences go hand in hand, one supplementing the other. This is wiry the shrewd gipsy fortune teller scans the face almost more closely than the hand of her patron. A few set rules in regard to the features and charc tenstics of the human face may well be added in this connection. And first of all, the soul dwells inHho eye; and the ability to understand its language is inborn with most people without having to study it; but n few vords in re gard to it may not be amiss. Very quiet eyes that impress and em barrass one with their great repose signify self-command, but also great complacency and conceit Eyes that rove hither and thither while their possessor speaks denote a deceitful, designing mind. Eyes in which the white has a yellowish tinge, and is streaked with reddish veins denote strong passions. Very blue eyes bespeak a mind inclined to coquetry; gray eyes signify intelligence; greenish, false hood and a liking for scandal; black eyes, a passionate, lively temperament; and brown, a kind, happy disposition. Of the nose A Roman nose do notes an enterprising, business like character; u long nose is a sign of good sense; a perfectly straight nose indicates a pure and noble soul, unless the eyes contra dict it; a iicz -retrousse signi fies a spirit of mischief, wit and dash; a large nose generally indicates good mind and heart; a very small nose, good nature, but lack of energy. Thick lips indicate either great genius or great stupidity; very thin lips, cruelty and falsehood, particularly if they are habitually compressed. Dimples in the cheek signify roguerj: in the chin, love and -coquetry. A lean face is an indication of intelligence; a fat face shows a person inclined to falsehood. Irascibility is accompanied by an erect posture, open nostrils, moist temples, displaying superfi cial veins, which stand out and throb under the least excitement, ! large, unequal, ill-ranged eyes, j and equal use of both hands. ' A good genius may be expected from middle stature, blue or gray eyes, large, prominent forehead, with temples a little hollow, a fixed, attentive look and habitual inclination of the head. Chehalis Valley Railroad. The following notes concerning the Chehalis Valley railroad were furnished us by F. M. JSrown, who has charge of the party engaged in making the final survey, and set ting the grade stakes on the above road. The initial point of the survey is on Budd's inlet, a mile and a half below Olympia, running east from there between Swan Town and Olympia to Thunder water; from there, keeping in the vicinity of the Black river road, to Mr. Young's on said river, crossing the river there on to Mina prairie, they reached the highest point on ' the prairie, 210 feet above sea-1 level; from Mina prairie to the' point of the Black hills, through Camas prairie, crossing ap-aiii at H. Hunter's, nearly direct fromj there to Mr. Gibson's. follnwinr , n the north bank of the Chehalis to the crossing of the Mock Chehalis in a direct line to Greenwood, thence to Elma, striking it a little south of Main street, on the sec ond bench, on about the level of Montesano, due west from Elma to the crossing of the Satsop just above the ferry, a little south of west from there to"a point a little east from this place, where they will rest for the present. Mr. Brown is now engaged in select ing a crossing of the Chehalis at this place; up to this time he has not fully decided where it will be After reaching Elma the road-bed will be almost a perfect level. The distance from the initial point by the survey, to Montesano is 47 miles, and after leaving Tumwa ter they found but one bad place on the road; at a point eight miles above Elma there will be quite a job of cutting and filling. The rest is an easy job, with not much work. Valley 1 "vfott. At No. 1224 Tenth street, Phila delphia, Pa., lives Win. G.

Dwellers in the lake cities, or in j any free and open city, with access to the air, have little conception of the suffering of a laboring popu lation in Xew York. Xw Vork has its sea breezes, but they cannot penetrate the narrow streets nor modify the retained heat of the brick walis. They are literally ovens, where the baking is done not by direct fire but by radiating heat. A Xew York physician says the best place in the world to bake a baby is New York. They melt away every summer. People are so thick in the tenement houses that they breed discomfort antl disease and inflict them upon one another.' There is no water on the upper, floors; or if there is it is tepid. In j small rooms six, eight or even ten j people are huddled, and they can not get a draft by opening their doors through. They are hard working people, tired out at night, and the irritated children keep them awake. The streets and roofs arc thronged with women striving for a breath of fresh air. Sometimes the mother falls asleep from sheer exhaustion, and police men have rescued their babies from the gutter in which the little ones tumbled from the mother's relaxed arms. The vermin swarm on hot nights with special viru lence. Exasperated by the heat, the vermin and want of rest, the inmates of these places quarrel, and oltcn come to blows. The promiscuity oi the sexes driven in to a herd to sleep or rest, is the source of immorality. Absolutely Pure. Tills powder neter varies.
