Following indications obtained from a distinguished English Palmist, he has prepared a most interesting drawing, containing Date Markings on Normally Placed Lines of Head and Heart. 'I understand that this additional method of securing time meas-urements has been verified in numberless cases as proving extremely useful and accurate, I have, therefore, no hesitation in presenting it to my readers, requesting those among them who are competent to discuss such a difficult topic to furnish me with their criticisms, even should they be entirely unfavorable to the proposed scales. I may add that, very lately - in fact, during the month of December, 1897 - Miss Ina Oxenford, the excellent London palmist, honored me with a communication on a similar subject wherein the that that the has reached recently a much closer calculation of dutes than has ever been realized - or even attempted by Desbarrolles, Papus, HeroAllen or even herself or her teacher, Mrs. Kathryn St. Hill.
