VENUS DE 1L0 LOST
HER A1SJ FIGHT
Secret Over Which World
Has Puzzled for Years Re

Special Cable to Tho Tribune.
PARIS, Dec. 7. Everybody who has
looked at tho beautiful statue of tho
Venus do Mllo In tho liouvro has asked
himself why this figure of tho Ideal
woman lias no arms, but no true ex
planation haa been found until now,
when M. Jean Alcard tells us tho rea
son why. As Alcard la a member of tho
Immortals of the academy, nobody will
doubt that his explanation la tight.
.Many havo been tho theories on tho
subject. Somo havo supposed that tho
goddess lacks arms because tho sculptor,
twenty centuries ugo, feared to complete
his work. How could ho make these
members beautiful enough? Again, oth

In her hand, ua "Venus AMctorlous," or
repelled a lover, who formed originally
port of a group with her.
Now, In a recent article, M. Alcard
disposes of these hypotheses. Venus had
arms as lovoly as her body. With her
right hand she held up her draperies,
In her loft was an apple.
Venus was discovered in 1S20 by a
pcn-sant. who was digging his ground
in the Island of Mllo. She was In a sort
of crypt or grotto. Vaguely realizing tho
value of the marble tho peasant carried

It Is whispered dread rumor that you
pay ten sous now for a bock in the Latin
Quarter; and It used to bo thr.ee, and
ciulte enough for one's purse, loo. Then
the students arc changing their ways
for the better, perhaps, but not for the
more picturesque. They are even begin
ning to study, as an incident at the open
ing of the present session ocs to prove.
The students who attend the Roman law
class have been demonstrating, breaking
windows and making bright llttlo paper
bonfires In the class room. That sounds
quite normal and cheerful. Tt is the sort
of thing that all students do the world
over, but the motive of the disturbance
marks tho change. The students arc dem
onstrating because they are not suffi
ciently supplied with tables on which
to take their, notes.
"What Is the world coming to?" sighs
one of the old school, or rather, of the
Old Sorbonno. "We had tables In plenty
chez Vachettc. As for desks In a lec
ture room, nous no nous enflchlons pas
mal. for we never attended a lecture
when we. could help It."
Foreigners Cause Change.
Perhaps tho foreign students are to
ho credited or discredited It depends on
the point of view with this change of
spirit, for of late years the University
of Paris has become Increasingly cos
mopolitan, in 11100 It counted five JSng
Ish students; In 11)00, eighty-four. Ger
mans advanced In the same period from
nineteen to 111: Russians from thirty
three to 107. This tremendous boom In
Russians Is partly due, it appears, to the
revolutionary crisis of 1001-6. Now, your
Russian student takes himself and his
duties very seriously Indeed herself and
her studies, I ought to have said, for
the majority of tho Russians are women.
Just here, perhaps, lies the secret of
the change In the latln Quarter In the
feminine invasion; for an Invasion It Is
of an army of blue-stockings over 1000
strong. It Is they. I daro wager, who
are clamoring for desks; for the women
