SELF - TAUGHT 




What Your Dream 

Meant 

BY MARTINI 

Author of Palmistry and How to Know 
Your Future 



A collection of dreams based on 
modern Psychology and the work- 
ings of the subjective mind. Not a 
lot of stuff drawn from the imag- 
ination of some fantastic mind, 
but dreams that have actually been 
verified in hundreds of cases. This book is so 
arranged that when a dream occurs, it can be 
easily interpreted as one knows just where to 
look for it. With this wonderful book from the 
pen of the great Martini, you can easily fore- 
tell your own future as any medium. 200 large 




pages.

NOTE. — In the Swedish language there is no article "the"; but 
the termination of a noun represents the article "the." For instance, 
horse is hast; but "the horse'* is hasten. This rule applies through- 
out. The substantives or nouns in this work are shown with the 
termination or the equivalent of the article the. To obtain the sub- 
stantive without the article it will only be necessary to drop the 
termination of any noun, and the radical remaining will express the 
noun without the article "the." 

Example — Katten, the cat. Now, cut ©ff the terminal "en," and 
we have simply katt, cat.

Vowels Are: 

a, e, i, o, u, y, a, a, 6. 

They are pronounced ah, eh, ee, oo, ou, oey, oh, aeh, oeh. 

a, o, u, a are called hard vowels in comparison with e, i, y, a, 6, 
which are called soft vowels. 

The letters e and o designate each two sounds — e sound as in 
"eld" and a sound as in "efter," pronounced after. 

O sound as in "blod" pronounced bloode, and a sound as in 
"troll" pronounced as in English. 

Some vowels change from one sound to another. This is called 

"omljud," umlaut in German; as a and a to a, o to o and u to y. 
Example — "fader," father, plur. fader; "son," son, plur. "soner;" 
"ung," young, "yngre," younger.

Adjectives. 





The adjective in Swedish is placed before the noun and agrees 
with the same in regard to gender and number. Furthermore, 
(there are to be observed Case, Declansion and Comparison, as : 
! Den gode fadern, the good father. 

Den goda modern, the good mother. 

Det goda barnet, the good child. 

En god fader, a good father. 



gO SWEDISH SELF-TAUGHT 

En god r.ioder, a #ood mother. 
Ett *odt barn, a good child. 

Comparison of Adjectives. 

Tne Comparative is formed by adding are or re to the Positive 
form, and the Superlative by adding ast or st, as : Stark, strong— 
starkare, stronger; starkast, i longest. 

Hog, high; hSgre, higher; hogst, highest. The "than" following) 
the comparative is translated by "an," as: han Ir mindre an jag,, 
he is smaller than I. 

Pronouns. 

Jag I I you hennes hers 

du hou de they var our 

han .»e min mine eder your 

hon she din thine deras their 
vi we hans his 

Note that "ni," you, is used, and not "du" in addressing a single 
person. 

"Det," it, is used in Swedish as the equivalent it is used in 
English. 

"Ho" or "hvem," who; "hvilken," which; "sadan," such; "nagon," 
somebody; "ingen," nobody.

; ALBERTUS MAGNUS 
EGYPTIAN SECRETS 

Being the Approved, Verified, Sympathe- 
tic and Natural or, White and Black Art 
for Man and Beast. The book of Nature 
and Hidden; Secrets and Mysteries of 
Life Unveiled, being the Forbidden 
knowledge of Ancient Philosophers, by 
the Celebrated Student, Philosopher, 
Chemist, Etc. 

Translated from the German. 
Three separate volumes all bound in one. 

Albertus, surnamed Magnus, from the Latinizing of his 
surname, which was Great, was a native of Suabia, and born 
in 1215. He was ardently desirous of acquiring knowledge, 
and studied with assiduity; but being of slow comprehension, 
his progress was not adequate to his expectations, and, there- 
fore, in despair he resolved to relinquish books, and bury 
himself in retirement. One night, however, he saw the vision 
of a beautiful woman, who accosted him and inquired the 
cause of his grief. He replied that in spite of all his efforts to 
acquire information, he feared he should always remain ig- 
norant. "Have you so little faith," replied the lady,* "as to 
suppose that your prayers will not obtain what you cannot 
yourself accomplish?" The young man prostrated himself 
at her feet, and she promised all that he desired, but added 
that as he preferred philosophy to theology, he should lose 
his faculties before his death. She then disappeared and the 
prediction was accomplished. Albertus became, unwillingly, 
Bishop of Ratisbon, but he relinquished the See within three 
years, and resided chiefly at Cologne, where he produced 
many wonderful works. It was said that he constructed an 
automaton which both walked and spoke, answered questions 
and solved problems submitted to it. Thomas Aquinas, who 
was the pupil of Albertus, was so alarmed on seeing this 
automaton, which he conceived to be the work of the devil, 
that he broke it to pieces and committed it to the flames. 
When William, Count of Holland, and King of the Romans, 
was at Cologne, Albertus invited him to a banquet, and prom- 
ised that his table should be laid out in the middle of his 
garden, although it was then winter, and severe weather. 
William accepted the invitation, and on arriving at the house 
of Albertus, was surprised to find the temperature of the air 
as mild as in summer, and the banquet laid out in an arbor 
formed of trees and shrubs covered with leaves and flowers, 
exhaling the most delicious odors, whicn filled the whole gar- 
den. Albertus was reputed a magician, but nevertheless, after 
his death, which occurred in 1292, in his seventy-seventh 
year, he was canonized. Sent upon receipt of $1.00*
