Tile "king's touch" takes a uniue
place in the history of quackeiy. This
was an aloofent belief that the oldt king
were abie to effect a cure upoin a patienit
by the laying oii of haiids. With the
"king's touch" a coin was generally giv-
en to the patienthby the :king. This, catt-
ed the "touch pieee," was given, how-
ever, on condition that the patienot re-
torn not too ofteni to be cured. 'hiis

Count Cagliustro woas a scroundel. 'He
was reputed to have sold exilirs of beau-

favor he was eiitered into the high so-
ciety of Paris svhere he fleeced many of
the wealthy of the French noetropolis.
