Beauty 500 Years Ago.
They have dug up an old beauty
book in Italy, published 500 years
\ ago, which laid down the following
rules of the game:
"To be beautiful," says the work,
"the women must have the following
r three white things: Skin, hands and
teeth. Three black things: Eyes, eyelashes
and eyebrows. Three pink
things: Lips, gums and nails. Three
long things: Life, hands and hair.
Three short things: Teeth, ears and
^ tongue. Three wide things: ForeA
head, shoulders and intelligence.
Three narrow things: Waist, mouth

BK Fingers, lips and mind. Three round
gp things: Arm, leg and dowry."

WANTED TO LYNCH NEGRO.
Arkansas Would-be Lynchers SurI
render Arms to Sheriff.
Washington, Ark., Sept. 22.?
? When Sheriff Ed Velvin reached the
" county jail here to-day with Golden
j Maxwell, a negro, he found a crowd
k of men and boys from the near-by
i town of Fulton about the prison enm
closure threatening to lynch the ne
gro and endeavoring to secure posM
session of the jail keys. The lead
ers gave up their weapons readily
if enough when the demand was made
H by Velvin and the prisoner was
marched to a cell. Then the con
fiscated shotguns and revolvers were
| returned and the members of the
f / mob departed. /
I Maxwell, who is accused of at|
tempting to assault a white woman
at Fulton, was kept in hiding last
night in anticipation of the coming
of the mob.
iThe First Dentists.
Dental theapeutics dates from a
very remote epoch. It is not known
when this art commenced, but it is
well known that the Egyptians practiced
it to a considerable extent.
On a papyrus scrool estimated to
date back 3,700 years before Christ,
~ J of fhiO fnof

Bp at the god Anubis, there were found
Hr written remedies against painful raol?E
ars and a way to alleviate other
troubles of the teeth by means pf
j&H pulverized drugs. The art of "filling"
Iis very remote. Egyptian mummies
have been found with molar cavaties
very carefully closed. Others have arRH
tificial teeth which show that in very
EH ancient times this dental process was

SAYS HE WAS HYPNOTIZED.
Man who Robbed New York Limited 1
Says He was Under Spell.
New Orleans, Sept. 24.?Howard
E. Edwards, the highwayman who a
held up and robbed the New York E
limited train of the Louisville and b
Nashville Railroad, near this city, on 1;
the night of September 4, to-day was t
indicted by the grand jury. He is s
charged with assaulting mail clerks h
on the train and with the theft of f
mail matter. c
Edwards, who has been in the hos- y
pital here with a fractured skull as t<
the result of blows struck by En- G
gineer Baer, who effected his cap- t
ture, was removed to the parish pris- l
on to await trial. He asserted to t:
newspaper men to-day that he was r
under the hynotic influence of four v
strangers, who drugged him when a
he committed the crime. p
Captain George a Hero.
Our own Captain George should '
have a Carnegie medal. At present u
he is not only the hero of the hour, ^
but is also the hero on the spot. '
One day last week a picnic was given v
on the banks of the muddy Sal- ?
kahatchie. A goodly crowd was there, s
so also was Captain George. The *
amusement for the day was boating ?
and bathing. For a while everything
was lovely, but ere long some
bathers got beyond their depths, and p
were in the act of drowning?three v
at that, two married ladies and a
young married man. Captain George e
was on the banks at the time smok- *
ing a big meerschaum as complacent- "
iv as any maian cmei ever aia rue
pipe of peace in years gone by, and ^
no sooner than he saw these three a
persons in the act of finding a watery a
grave, in he jumped, pipe and all,
and no Newfoundland, St. Bernard, b
or Spaniel ever rescued a drowning c
party as quickly and nicely as did 0
Captain George. So quickly was .t
done, that when he came out with
the three parties his pipe was still a
smoking like a Yule log or a vol- ^
cano, and parties who saw him make
the rescue declare he never missed h
a puff while in the water.
Now, this act kindled the fires of
mercy in Captain George, and scent- ^
ing danger from afar as Job's warhorse
scented battle, Captain George
was made patrol of the day, and into
a boat he got, taking with him two ^
young ladies, one being, however, a
merry widow?sisters of "mercy in
case of emergency. Up and down
the river went Captain, now Patrol R
George in his tiny boat, with his
u.unletii neigui., cue aiuicoaiu mcnj ^
widow included, and ere long a cry
for help was heard down the river.
Now the way that Captain George
plied the oars was the way, the way
not only to' forward the' boat with ^
Titanic speed, but also the way to
hit the merry widow side the head
at almost every stroke, and you can ^
bet that "the wail of the widow was
heard in the land," so also in that
boat and on the river, too. Now,
Captain George, the patrol, wanted
order in his craft, he wanted his
ears to catch every cry for help, and
how on earth could he hear these
cries with a merry widow wailing
like mad in his own life saving boat?
Looking back upon the wailing and
bruised widow, Captain George ^
shouted in real sea language: Pypy-py-py
Gosh! or-or-or-order as-as- ^
as-astern, or I'll send for the foolfool-fool-killer,
"Then," meekly answered the
* * \ 7.
wailing widow, "we'll have a dangerous
pair?the fool killer, and the a
widow killer. When they come both ^
of us must go, George and I."
However, Captain George was soon
on the spot and his help was needed,
for there upon a low hanging limb a
over twenty feet of water was a n
young girl suspended, scared almost
unto death. On one side of the river
was a more than half drowned girl,
much wetter than the drowned rat,
while on the other side, upon a log,
sat a very wet young man, wetter
than the mouse wre read about, and
his face paler than the face of the
very pale steed that one day takes
us out of this world of woes. And
Hnwn thp rivpr wns n hnnt turtle- +,
like, going slowly, but surely sea- a
ward, bottom up of course. But g
Captain George, the patrol, and the b
Knight soon set things right, and s]
while the bruised widow was a sight a
we know that by Sunday she can put f(
her mite in the contribution box. ti
And our good young friend, Ernest,
swears by all the gods of yore, s<
that in swimming never more will he tl
go with two married ladies weighing fj
less than a ton each, who cares not u
how far from shore they lead him, or a
care not how deep the water in which ei
they go, and they being fully as ac- t
tive as anvils, carry him down as it 0
were to the bottomless pit. And his h
young wife warns Ernest not even
10 step into a mua nuie in lae roaa,
fearing it may have no bottom, and
that two rather stout married ladies
may be therein. tl
As for Captain George, he now a
sleeps with his pipe in his mouth, n
for he says he may dream of res- h
cuing other persons, and he is sure
'hirteen Stitches Taken in Man's
Skull with Silver Thread.
The life of Samuel Olsen, an assistnt
engineer in the employ of the
Iradley Construction Co., whose
iome is in No. 78 2d place, Brookv-n,
probably was saved yesterday by
he surgical feat of taking thirteen
titches with silver thread through
lis skuil. Olsen was injured in a
all from a ladder in the subway exavation
at Duane and Center streets
pstprdav morninc. and was hurried
d the Volunteer Hospital in No. 93
rold street, where Dr. A. J. Savage,
he surgeon in charge, at once began
operate. So hopeless did the paient's
condition seem that the last
ites of the Roman Catholic church
rere given him by a priest in the
mbulance on the way to the hosital.
That Olsen will recover, Savage
dmitted, is by no means certain. So
ar as any of the officials of the Volnteer
Hospital could recall, the
assing of thirteen stitches in a paient's
skull is an accomplishment
- ithout precedent in the annals of
urgery. Should just one of the fine
ilver wires have got into contact
t-ith the eneineer's exDOsed brain his
;eath would have resulted instantly,
^he operation lasted almost three
Lours, and when it was ended Olsen's
iulse had risen from 45 beats to 90,
rhich is reasonably normal.
The nature of his work forces the
ngineer to do much clambering
round the excavation for the new
ubway, which is being constructed
y the Bradley Construction Co.
ihortly after noon Olsen ascended
ladder to a point fourteen feet
bove the ground. The bottom of
be ladder slipped, and he was flung
ackward. He landed full on the
entre of his skull which was split
pen like a melon cut into four parts,
'here was a fissure running from
be base of the skull to his forehead,
nd another across his head almost
rom ear to ear.
Olsen's fellow-employees, thinking
e had been killed, called a policelan
staticmed near by. He, too, beeved
the man was dead, for he
3uld detedt no heart action, neverleless
he turned in a hurry call for
n ambulance. The Volunteer Hosital
called its vehicle, which was
tationed at Duane street and Broaday
for the Olympic athletes' parade,
nd in five minutes Dr. Savage was
t the apparently dying man's side.
Father Gilmore, of St. Andrew's
oman Catholic church, also naa |
een called, and as the ambulance
earing the unconscious engineer
peeded toward the Gold Street Inrmary,
the clergyman gave the rites
)r the dying. Olsen was recognizid
s a Catholic through the scapular
e wore about his neck.
"As soon as 1? placed the patient
n the operating table and examined
le wound carefully," said Dr. Savge
in telling of the operation, "I relized
the only chance of saving his
fe lay in taking stitches in his
kull. That is a ticklish task at best,
nd under the conditions it looked
lmost hopeless. With my assistnts,
Dr. J. Keating and Dr. Michael
hultz, I set to work at once. First
re had to bore seven holes?four on
ne side and three on the other?
trough the skull at the cross fissre,
and six more on each side of the
"The boring is done with a drill
mien is adjusted so nneiy as 10 yreent
its penetrating one-sixtieth of
n inch further than is intended, in
'hich small distance it would strike
tie brain and cause instant death,
'hen the silver threads were insertd
in the holes and drawn together
bout as one laces a shoe?except,
aturally, with more delicate maniplation.
The time of the operation
as from 1:15 to about 4:20 p. m.
have never heard of a case where
s many as thirteen stitches have
een made in the skull. The operaon
was the most interesting in the
istory of the Volunteer Hospital."
There is a glass of French invenon
which is intended to be proof
gainst the ordinary attacks of burlars.
So many cases of burglary have
een committed by the breaking of
how-windows and snatching of valubles
on exhibition that a special efirt
has been made to end this parcular
form of theft.

3cret process, but the makers admit

icture are its principal essentials,
