Short Nails

Nails short in appearance denote a tendency towards weak action of the
heart, more especially so when the "moons" are very small or barely
noticeable. When the Nails appear very flat and sunk into the flesh at
the base they denote nerve diseases. When they are "ribbed" across the
Nail from side to side, the danger is still more apparent.

When a deep furrow is found across the Nail, it is a sign in any hand
that an unusual call has recently been made on the nervous system by
illness. If the following rule be studied, the date of this illness or
strain can be very clearly indicated.

As it takes about nine months for a nail to grow out from the base to the
outer edge, the nail can easily be divided into sections. When the furrow
or very deep "rib" is seen close to the edge, the illness took place
about nine months ago; when the furrow is seen about the centre, the date
was about from four to five months, and when at the base, about one month

White spots on the Nails are a sign of general delicacy, and when the
Nail is seen covered with small white flecks, the whole nervous system is
in a low state of health.
