Quite as the setting of a Jewel brines
out its beauty, bo does that of the eye not
only enhance Its loveliness but gives
grace and expressiveness to the whole
face. Hence, it Is important that every
thing possible be dono toward bcauUfylng
the eyelashes, brows, and lids, and toward
keeping the flesh about the eyes and the
eyelids smooth and free from wrinkles.
If your eyes are small or too large they
cannot be changed save by a surgical
process, and that is not to be recommend
ed except In cases of actual disfigure
ment, but you can. by shaping the arch
of the eyebrows and training the lashes,
effect an Illusion that Is remarkable.
Every night brush tho brows with a
brush that Is stiff but not harsh, to re
move dandruff and dust particles that
may have accumulated during the day.
following the line of the arch it is de
sired the brows shall assume, making one
continuous stroke. Then, with a soft
camel's hair brush apply either ordinary
yellow vaseline or aweet almond oil.
warming each so that It will sink Into the
roots, but taking care that none enters
the eves. Itepcat the process with the
lashes, brushing from the ends up toward
the roots. This not only grooms and
strengthens the tiny hairs, but gradually
darkens and thickens their growth.
If tho lashes have a tendency to curve
Inward, they should nt once bo taken care
of, as they are liable to cauie Irritation
to the eye and then dangerous Inflamma
tion. First try what training them will
do. curling them outward with the thumb
and forefinger, moistened with almond
oil. This failing, the offending hair must
be removed with tiny forceps that are
made for Jutt such operations.
If the lashes are encrusted In the morn
ing. Immediately on rising use the eyrcuii
with boraclc .icld solution, or. If preferred,
a solution of boraclc acid (one ounce) with
rose wattr (one pint), dissolving the acid
in the rose water.
stes, which are caused by local Irri
tation, should be attended to immediate
ly upon tbelr appearance, as besides being
excessively annoying and painful they
are disfiguring. In its first stage, tip the
stye with collodion, using the minutest
ef camel's lialr brushes, and holding tho
afflicted lid away from the eyeball for a
moment or two till the collodion hardens.
Perhaps nothing adds so much to ap
parent age as circles and bags under the
ey, which are occaslonad by loosened
muscles. Kvcry precaution should be
taken to prevent them by niean of gen
tle manage with a good skin food, pref
erably one In which lanoline forms a part,
supplemented. If at all available, by an
electrical treatment once a week. Once
the bags have assumed a settled condi
tion, however, there Is nothing to rvsort
to but the surgeon's services, which,
though one hesitate to recommend thm.
are neither painful nor dangerous in this
cate. An Incision Is made, the superfluous
liesh removed, the loosened skin drawn
up, tho edges i-evved toecthcr. and healing
ensues without leaving a scar. Similarly
are lids which hae become flabby and
wrinkled treated successfully, but, need
less to say, only by the surgeon.

Old-time punishment for offenses at sea
was most severe. The code of tho time
of Richard I of England, drawn up for
tho government of his fleet on the cni'
sades, provided "that whoso killed any
person on shipboard should bo tied with
him that, was slain and thrown into the
sea. And If he killed him on the land
he should In like manner he tlod v. lth
the partle slain and be burled with him
in the earth."
In Elizabeth's time n thief was to be
ducked three times, toned ashore at the
stern of a boat and marooned with a

Tho penalties imposed for sleeping on
watch were progressive. For the first

Among the rules Issued by Raleigh for

general punishment for blasphemy at this
time was for tho offender to be bound
to the mainmast with an Iron bit between
his teeth, the alternative being a scrap

from tho Sew Tors ,
"I'd rather have 100 men under my
charge than one woman." said tho Jailer
ofRajmond Street Jail. In Brooklyn.
"You sec," he explained, "even the men
we get in here, who have offended
against the law. presumably have & re
spect for It. an Idea of Its necessity.
We get pretty desperato men to lock up
sometimes. They don't mike any

"But the women:" Tho Jailer wiped
his forehead. "Do you know," he,
claimed helplessly, "every blessed on Wt

"They"ro antagonistic toward tho rules.
They won't do this and they won't do
that. It almost seems 'as if they deliber
ately worked themselves up Into rages
over. Immaterial matters. And when 'a
woman says '1 won't and looks at
you tho jailer shook his head. "It's
a hard" proposition." he said.
"We're hampered In dealing with them.

too. Our hands are tied when It comes
to the women. What extra punishment
