Most Interesting Age of Woman.
"What Is tho most Interesting ago
In woman?" was a question recently
discussed by an artist, an author and a
woman of society. The artist said he
did not llko to paint the portraits of
those between the ago of twonty-tlvo
and forty. Beforo twenty-flve tho faco
has an expectancy which charms. It
is looking forward with Joyous fresh
ness and hopo, and Is full of puz
zling promises. At forty years tho
character Is formed and the lines of
tho countenance are strong for tho
painter's study, but In tho Intervening
years the faco has lost Its oxpectancy,
Is apt to bo Indifferent, and has no par
ticular Interest. Tho author differed
from tho artist. Ho liked to study
women between tho ages of thirty and
forty. Thoy had then tho experience
of tho world and tho Joyousness of
youth. In those years thoy woro
brightest and most Interesting. The
society woman thought It was Impossi
ble to mako gcnoral answers to tho
questions as Individual women differ
In regard to which was tho moBt at

ing at sixty years, whilo others havo
passed tho prime at twenty. The bost
answer would bo that women aro al

Scientific Tests Have Shown How
Plainly a Devlator From the Truth
May Be Distinguished.
When a man Is telling a llo he
breathes differently from when ho Is
telling tho truth. The diffcrenco was
discovered by means of somo tests
made upon his students by Professor
Denussl of Italy.
Ho prepared cards bearing letters,
ilgures and diagrams and distributed
theso among his pupils. Theso were
required to describes tho cards cor
rectly, except In certain cases when
tho cards wcro marked with a red
star, and the students recolvlng them
Vere required to describe them falsely
Each student was watched carefully
by his follows, who, Ignorant of the
'nature of tho card, tried to judge from
his manner whether ho was telling the
truth or not. Tho watchers were un
ablo to judgo with any certainty.
Under tho direction of Profcssoi
Denussl tho time occupied in Inspira
tion and expiration was measured,
and tho measurement was taken again
immediately after ho finished. It was
found that the utterance of a false
statement always increased and the
uttcranco of a true statement always
diminished tho quotient obtained by
dividing the time of Inspiration by the
time of expiration.
Dr. Anton Rose, commenting on
these results, remarks that the dis
covery furnishes a certain criterion
between truth and falsehood. Foi
