TELLING FORTUNES B Y T H E L I N E S I N T H E H A N D . Observe always to choose the left hand, because the heart and brain have more influence over it than the right hand ; and observe further it is better to examine these lines when the body is in good order, for then they appear full. By this the reader will see that one of the lines, and which in­ deed is reckoned the principal, is called the line of life ; this line encloses the thumb, separating it from the hollow of the hand. The next to it, which is called the natural line, takes it beginning THE A R T O F F O R T U N E T E L L E R . from the rising of the middle finger. The table line, commonly called the line of fortune, begins under the little finger and near the forefinger. The girdle of Venus is another line so called, be­ gins near the joint of the forefinger, and ends in the middle finger The line of death is a counter line to the line of life, and is by some called the sister line, there are also lines in the flesey parts, as in the ball or the thumb, which is called the mount of Venus, which are each governed by the several planets, and the hollow of the hand is called the place of Mars. I f the lines which are in the middle of the hand, and are called the table lines, are broad and fair, without being broken, is a sure sign the party will lead a comfortable and happy life. I f the line from the wrist goes straight up to the little finger, it is a better sign than if broken, for then it den otes the party will live a good old age, but on the contrary, should the line want con­ tinuation, they are in danger of sudden death. I f the line of life, which is that which runs from the wrist by the ball of the thumb, and ends under the forefinger, is clear, and ends without breaks, it denotes possession, prosperity and happy old age. Round lines like semicircles, on the inside of the tips of the fingers, promises house, lands, and inheritance. As many lines or crosses as a woman has in her wrist, so many children she may expect to have. I f the middle, or table lines in the hand are very narrow and contracted, it is a sign of poverty and crosses in the world. If a crooked line goes through the table line, it is a sign of death by accident or violence, but if it runs straight and even through, it is a good sign. To know how soon a Person may be Married.

I f the person dreams of music she will wed thoes she desires, and that shortly ; if of fire, she will be crossed in love : if of a church she will die single.
