palmistry, n.

the 947th method (according to mimbleshaw's classification) of obtaining money by false pretences. it consists in "reading character" in the wrinkles made by closing the hand. the pretence is not altogether false; character can really be read very accurately in this way, for the wrinkles in every hand submitted plainly spell the word "dupe." the imposture consists in not reading it aloud.
