The journal boasted that it "gave instruction on all questions relating to magnetism and to the occult and divinatory sciences," and offered to be the clearing house for anyone seeking to contact healers, mediums and occultists. It prominently touted the services and devices of its contributors, like Albert D'Angers ("diagnostic somnambulique"), his Institut Magnetique de Nantes and his novel The Niece with $35 Million Dollars; the wonderful "La Vitale" stomach belt; the services of Mme Lucie des Landes on somnambulism, cartomancy, graphology, astrology, etc.; the marvelous elixirs and tisanes of the hermit Father Roustan in the seventeenth century (1 franc to 1 franc 50), etc. Contributions by Combes Leon, Victories Sardou (and an article on Sardou's impoverished old age in Paris), Jacques Iraud, Jean Bardot, Victor D'Angers, and others, with a large amount of filler and "curious" stories from the newspapers on telepathy, marriage laws in Kansas, etc., and short excerpts on "monthly flowers" and on "Plants and Curiosities." BNF.
