A SKEPITCAL LOOK  AT  FAMOUS OCCULTISTS     
   by The Notorious Doctor Zoom Zoom

 CHEIRO (1867-1936)


    A famous Irish palmist of the early 20th  century who's real name was William Warner.  Books with his name are still being printed  and sold. He was flashy and knew how to  attract attention. He did gain some celebrity  clients for a time. He made many  unsubstantiated claims (as do all occultists),  such as having an affair with German spy  Mata Hari and traveling to India and Egypt to  study the occult. 


     Warner claimed to have  discovered a rare  occult book written on  human hide about  palmistry...which is  extremely unlikely.  There were plenty of  commercially printed   books on Palmistry  around then as are now  as well as people  who practiced it, which is no doubt how he  really learned the subject.


     Cheiro/Warner was said to have read the palms of some celebrities, including Mark Twain and Charlie Chaplain, but there’s no record as to what they thought of his accuracy, if any.  After his popularity ended he tried to revitalize his career by moving to California...but he apparently couldn’t foresee his own failure at this.  He even tried his hand unsuccessfully at writing screenplays. He died poverty-stricken (as do most occultists) in Hollywood, California, in 1936, apparently unable to see his own future.
