with them.=--Borrow a wedding ring, concealing the purpose for which 

you borrow it; but no widow's or pretended marriage ring will do--it 

spoils the charm; wear it for three hours at least before you retire 

to rest, and then suspend it, by a hair off your head, over your 

pillow; write within a circle resembling a ring, the sentence from the 

matrimonial service beginning with, "_with this ring I thee wed_," and 

round the circle write your own name at full length, and the figures 

that stand for your age; place it under your pillow, and your dream 

will fully explain whom you are to marry, and what kind of a fate you 

will have with them. If your dream is too confused to remember it, or 

you do not dream at all, it is a certain sign that you will never be 

married. 

 

 

PHYSIOGNOMICAL SIGNS OF A GOOD GENIUS. 

 

A straight, erect body, neither over tall nor short, between fat and 

thin. The flesh naturally soft. The skin neither soft nor rough, but a 

medium between. The complexion white, verging to a blush of redness. 

The hair between hard and soft, usually of a brown color. The head and 

face of a moderate size. The forehead rather high. The eyes manly, 

big, and clear, of a blue or hazel color. The aspect mild and humane. 

The teeth so mixed that some are broad and some narrow. A subtle 

tongue, and the voice between intense and remiss. The neck comely and 

smooth. The channel-bone of the throat appearing and moving. The back 

and ribs not over fleshy. The shoulders plain and slender. The hands 

indifferently long and smooth. The fingers long, smooth, and equally 

distant. The nails white, mixed with red, and shining. The carriage of 

the body erect in walking. 

 

 

ELECTRICAL PSYCHOLOGY, OR PSYCHOLOGICAL FASCINATION. 

 

The most easy, sure and direct mode to produce electro-psychological 

communication is to take the individual by the hand, in the same 

manner as though you were going to shake hands. Press your thumb with 

moderate force upon the _ulnar nerve_, which spreads its branches to 

the ring and little finger. The pressure should be nearly one inch 

above the knuckle, and in range of the ring finger. Lay the ball of 

the thumb flat and particularly crosswise so as to cover the minute 

branches of this nerve of motion and sensation. When you first take 

your subject by the hand, request him to place his eyes upon yours, 

and to keep them fixed, so that he may see every emotion of your mind 

expressed in the countenance. Continue this pressure for half a minute 

or more, then request him to close his eyes, and with your fingers 

gently brush downward several times over the eyelids, as though 

fastening them firmly together. Throughout the whole process feel 

within yourself a fixed determination to close them, so as to express 

that determination fully in your countenance and manner. Having done
