Foretold the Occurrence by the Stars.

     Hoboken, N. J., Sept. 7.—(Spl.)—Astrologer Gustave Meyer, famous for his predictions of great events, on May 21, sent the following to President McKinley:
     “Your wife will live, but you are in danger of assassination.” Secresary [sic] Cortelyou acknowledged the telegram. Meyer said today: “At this time Mars, the warlike and hostile planet, is in McKinley’s ascendant and the planet of Neptune, denoting death or critical illness is in the eighth house. Mars is in the twelfth house, meaning secret foes or assassination.
     “If the president lives he will pass the critical period around the 26th or 27th of this month.”
