Grant Chesterfield Makes a Most Remarkable Discovery

Prof. Grant Chesterfield was up to his elbows in plaster of paris in his parlors at 316 Columbia Street, taking impressions of palms.

"There is one of the greatest finds I have ever made," and he fondled a plaster of paris cast of a palm that looked as though it was full of spider web.

"Whose hand is it?"

"That would be betraying confidence, but it was a resident of Seattle, and the palm of a financier. He certainly will go to millions. He is pretty well on the way as it is, in fact. Young man, too. See that line? That means money. Distinct, isn't it? Here' the same line in Phil Armour's palm. Havemeyer, the great sugar man, has the same."

It seems almost incredible, the number of people who have had their palms read since Chesterfield's arrival, and so far as could be learned, everybody is satisfied that the palmist is remarkably gifted and that the palm does give character, defeats, disaster, success, prosperity, marriages, divorces, travels, diseases, etc.

The engima, however, is preparing to leave town, and expects to remain but a very few days. The parlors are open to the public until 8 o'clock, and the fee asked for a life reading is 50 cents.
