Supernormal faculties in Man- Dr Eugene Osty
On July 31st, 1914, Count Ugo Baschieri, a Brazilian doctor well known for his supernormal faculties, was passing through Paris; and at 9 in the evening was giving a seance at the house of Madame J M., a literary Lady who lived in St. Charles Street, not far from the fortifications.
The seance had been in progress for 25 minutes, and Count Baschieri had been making predictions as to the impending war. Suddenly he said,
“To-night or tomorrow some one of importance will be murdered."
Then, greatly agitated. . . "To-night, much blood! Look at the time."
The room being nearly dark, someone struck a match-it was 9.40.
Continuing to show much agitation, he said, "something is happening towards the Boulevard des Italiens."
As is well known, Jaures was assassinated by Villain in the restaurant where he was dining at the corner of the Rue Montmartre and the Rue du Croissant, between-9.35 and 9.40, about 300 yards in a straight line from the Boulevard des ltaliens.
