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
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
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-
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

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
