I hare been twenty yean at the study
C palmistry or chirognomy, and during
that time have not been able to discover
amy philosophic reason for believing that
aBeUnesof the hand and its shape indi
cate character. The want of a connect
ing theory frequently causes me to lose
all hope and belief in the investigation;
but practice restores confidence. No one
can look at even a few hands every
asonth for years together without being
driven to the conclusion that they really
.do contain a guide to much that is to be
found iu the nature of their owners. As
an actual fact, however, I find that the
leading lines of the hand are never eccen
trically deformed, broken or deficient in
- persons who have not some gaps or
queer places in their characters, to
-If the lines are long, clear, red, gently
carved, except the upright ones, few in
number, and shown in a hand that has
".Augers with substantial tips and not too
long roots, the best sort of nature may
be looked for. In the case of persons of
brilliant original talent and thought, the
upright line from the base of the palm
toward the fingers is never absent and
is sometimes repeated twice or even
thrice. It is called the "line of Saturn,"
aad springs from many different places.
In musicians, actors and some others it
usually starts from below the little
finger. When it is joined at the base to
the curved line round the thumb an in
dependence of feeling out of proportion
to the will strength or the pride of the
rest of the character is to be expected.
If the line called that of the head, which
crosses the hand from above the thumb,
ally turning down to the pad below
the little finger, be entirely separate
from the lino that surrounds the thumb,
the whole character will be modified,
whether it be a good or bad one, by this
separation. As a rule that modification
will tend to make the person seem more
clever when thinking out of his own
head, but less able, however sympathetic
aad docile, to adopt the modes of getting
at ideas by which his teachers.achieve
their success.
A short little finger often goes with
a sweetness, a readiness to repent of evil
aad of anger, and sometimes even a
cheerful abnegation. Both kinds are
consistent with a permanence of nega
tive wishes, or, as it is usually called,
obstinacy, as this is a quality capable of
drawing strength from many sources. A
large ended thumb is very good in a
good man, and helps him to fight the
battle of life. In a dull and selfish man
it enables him to be extra oppressive at
hoase, aad to make his opinions of much
-more effect than their valao warrants.
: A thumb whose end is large and its shaft
poor, as though it were a door handle
with a weak neck and could be twisted
off the hand, is not an advantage. This
-leads to many evils, and, though often
found in a good man, gives a tendency
to change the reasons for his good deeds
or good opinions, even after he has been
emphatic in choosing or defending them.
Such change will usually be rather of
the nature of a reversal than a drifting
Blunt ended thumbs seldom go with a
natural tendency to politenessof address
or a polished approach, except when, as
in persons much before the world, this
has been learned as a part. But in good
types it goes with a gentleness and kind
ness of manner bred by self knowledge
which has taught the owner, to counter
act his faults before they have time to
hurt innocent people. It follows as a
matter of course that among women
those whose lingers and thumbs are
pointed are generally the more super
ficially charming. Those with large,
bluat ended fingers are (if intellectual
and educated) more valued and mure
impressive, and even commanding. But
command, like melancholy, has. more
than one origin, viewed as an expression
of constitutional tendency.
Pointed fingered people have no excuse
if they are not agreeable, for it costs
them little to seem so. If large ended
blunt fingered people show delicate dis
cernment, 6elf abnegation in mental
matters, indulgence to shallow weak
Bess, patience with anger and folly, they
are either entirely uninterested person
ally in the occasions that bring such
qualities before them, or have bought
their good nature at a price, like the
Ceatarion his freedom.
When a student of the hand has read
and applied for himself all the volumes
that liave been written on the subject,
and when he lias also discovered how to
discount the bias of his different authors
by guessing at their hands and account
ing for their predilections, and when he
has achieved such proficiency in looking
at a hand and adding up all the conflict
ing forces suggested by its balance of
lines and segments that he can at.once
tell how to classify the owner and what
to expect of him, yet the greatest of all
difficulties will remain to be surmounted.
This hard lull to climb is nothing less
than to describe a character in such
terms that the owner of the same must
confess his portrait and say, "Yes, it is
tree; I am like that" Edwin Ellis in

The reporter found him leaning over
the desk at the. telegraph office. There
was nothing about him that would have
attracted attention, except perhaps a
strange troubled look in his eyes and the
reckless way he. was destroying Mr.
Gould's telegraph blanks. He would
take up a sheet, dash off a line or two,
hold it at arms length, slowly shake his
head and then crumple the dispatch in
his hand and try it all over again. On
the sixth round a glad smile told that he
had written the thing to his satisfaction,

And as the reporter was moving off
the clerk picked up another blank and
read it over softly to himself. There
was no smile on his lips this time as he
turned to the scribe and said slowly:

The Elevator te Karopoaw Hotels.
The "lift" is not displayed ostentatious
ly in the great German houses. R is be
hind iron doors, to be detected only by
inspection, and is moved by clanking
chains. The deliberation of the proceed
ing is its most distinguishing character
istic. You stand in the great hall of the
hotel where areconnoissancehas located
the laboring "lift" and silently await de
velopments. Everybody else has the
greatest plenty of time. Presently from
the unknown interior iron doors fly open,
and a soldierly looking servant with
brass buttons on his cap, preoccupied
with his responsibilities, steps forth with
an air of majesty. The doors clang as
they swing, and the lift is there, rather
primitive but elaborate in construction.
Perhaps there may be five passengers
ready to get aboard. When four have
taken position the master of the elevator
waves the fifth backward with an awful
air of authority, and if the rejected one
is an American urgent to go up at once,
he is told peremptorily that there are
places "only for four." The iron doors
are banged, the engines heave and the
massive machine moves. Safety is con
sulted! Here is a masterly mechanism
that might swing a pair of elephants of
the size of Jumbo, but an attempt to lift
at once more than four persons would be
regarded as an affront to the empire.
The thing's impossible! The French
have the same elevating methods. There
is usually an iron gate as well as an iron
door to the ascenseur in France, and in
some of the first class establishments
they will risk taking up as many as five
passengers at a time. The chains that
are rigged for the security of this multi
tude of irresponsible things are of links
of wrought iron two inches in diameter.
Bernhardt' Late Hi
He was known in European theatrical
circles as Daria, and, it is said, claimed

ones, and in the royal family, he had ne

commercial traveler. The elder Damala
was a trader m raw sux, having a house
in Syria, and the son is said to have been
unusually successful fa disposing of the
father's wares. It is even said that he
had no right to hk high sounding name
that he. assumed " Aristides'' f or his
own satisfaction, and that hewaachris
tened as only "Jacques."
Damala was fond of gambling, and a
swarm of creditors is believed to have
hurried his marriage and to have fol
lowed him unrelentingly until he left for
Barcelona. He was once mixed up in a
gambling case with Lambri Pasha, bat
his friends say that he was never a black

The town of OrisnJrr, on tbaEIster,
has been for many centuries the center
of pearl fishing in Saxony. In no other
parts of Saxony nor in aU Germany
were the banks so rich as here.
In early days every one had a right to
gather muscles; in 1CH the sovereign
assumed porscsslon of the pearl fisheries.
Prince Electoral Johann George appoint
ed in that year Moritx Schmirler as elec
toral pearl fisher at a salary of thirty
florins ($12) a year. An ordinance of 1701
administered severe punishments for
pearl thieving.
The 8chmirler family were always
connected with pearl fishing. Moritz's
parents are known to have occupied
themselves with it Their celebrity for
kill and knowledge in this branch was
so great that in 1740 one of them was
summoned to Denmark in order to in
vestigate pearl fisheries in that country.
Not long ago three Oelsnitz citizens,
descendants of Moritz Schmirler, were
salaried as sworn royal pearl fishers:
Salary, 140 thalers ($105), with wood and
produce, yearly. Therefore they had to
deliver to the government all the pearls
found. The Schmirlers fill the same po
sition to the present day.
When pearls were higher in price the
largest Elster pearls were valued at 180
nutria ($45) each. At present the pearl
production from the Elster is not so great
in importance. Numerous factories on
the Elster shores seem to have a damag
ing influence, their waste water mixing
with the river. Jewelers Weekly.

Defect la Edacatloaal System.
Perhaps the most serious defect of the
system of liberal education now preva
lent in the United States is its lack of a
truly progressive character. It is full of
fits and starts. It is too disjointed and
fragmentary. This is partly because
there are no settled principles of pro
cedure, fixing the order and amounts of
the studies; and partly because there is
no power which can secure teachers that
know precisely what they are expected,
fitted and permitted to teach. The con
sequence is that the different years of
school life too much resemble the differ
ent successive sessions of our legisla
tures. Milton somewhere describes the
process of legislation as "hatching a lie
with the heat of jurisdiction." Fortun
ately, the process also consists in killing
the brood of lies already hatched by pre
vious legislation. Now the process of
education in this country k by no means
so bad in this regard as the process of
legislation; but in certain respects the
former too much resembles the latter.

Men and women are coming more and
more to recognise that they are not living
solely for themselves. Selfishness is bad;
sympathy and a desire to help others are
good. Never before was there so much
charity shown to the sick, the needy , the
friendless. And yes, charity does not
end with the bestowal of food, clothing
and shelter; it has only done a part of
its work. The world is full of neglected
children, of discouraged men, of women
who are heavy laden with care and sor
row, wad others whose naturally bright
atinds are starved and dwarfed. Ma
terial charity might help some of them,
but their greatest needs lie often in the
direction of sympathy, care, mteQectnal
stimulas and aids to a higher Ufa.

We know personally of a poor family
who owned not more tlian two or three
books. An agent came around and of
fered the mother, at a low price, a small
work on civil government which she
earnestly desired to possess for the sake
of instructing her growing boysr She
had no money, but, much against the.
wishes of the father, who did not think
such things were necessary, she bartered
some domestic product for the coveted
volume. As she sat down and turned its
pages lovingly, and found there just the
information of which she felt herself so
urgently in need, in order to be an intel
ligent instructor for her children, her
emotions overcame her and she wept
long, influenced by the privation she had
undergone and the present joy of possess
ing the coveted treasure.
And tliat one book proved a very great
help in the rearing of her sons and
daughters to an intelligent manhood and
womanhood. This instance is only a sin
gle one in a thousand. There are others
who experience a thirst for wider knowl
edge, a soul hunger that is pitiful, and
which many, even though poor in this
world's goods, could easily relieve, if
they would. This is a phase of charity
in which people who have not money to
give can help. There are many highly
educated ladies who could not bestow
alms, but who might gather together a
class of women hungry for intellectual
thing i, and feed them from their rich
store acquired by education and travel,
or who could visit them and talk with
them singly while a their work. At

rtb Heart.
In diseases of the heart which persist
for a long time and finally end, as a very
large proportion of them do, in slow de
cline and a lingering death, dropsy al
ways sets. in. In the late stages it is a
most intractable symptom, and adds
greatly to the suffering experienced. In
the treatment, physicians have been
wont to depend largely upon a diet of
milk, which, in cases where it is well
borne and can be persisted in, always acts
well. But there are many patients who,
for various reasons, cannot be kept on a
milk diet for any length of time. To
some it becomes abhorrent after a while,
and others really cannot digest it prop
erly, as simple food as it is. And besides
that, a milk diet is really unsnited to no
small proportion of patients affected with
cardiac diseases. We have reference to
those who cannot be kept quiet, bat in
