with which astrological ceremonies and supersti-
tions have maintained their position, even among
nations utterly rejecting star-worship, and even in

our view, has not been altogether abandoned. The
wiser reject it as a superstition, but even the wisest
have at one time or other felt its delusive in-
fluence.
