BEAUTY OP FORM.
The ( liiu in of Proportion In Doth Ulan
, . mid Woman.
Beauty of the human form is to-day
exactly what it was in ancient Greece;
it is. the same through all the centuries,
however blind we are to its characteris
tics through ignorance. The census of
age3 is a true verdict, and classic forms
become eafo models. Greek sculpture
was wrought when the body received its
highest cultivation, and was so beautiful
as to bo called divine.
This sculpture should be carefully and
continuously studied, as well as pictures
of good nude figures. They are to be
made familiar, that one may learn why
they are good, why they deserve admira
tion. Most people fancy that they ad
mire these classic models, but it must be
in imagination only, else why should
they allow themselves to exemplify falso
standards of form, and positively distort
their own Gpd given bodies ?
Searching for the highest standards of
human form, we discover that manly
beauty and -womanly beauty differ es
sentially. It is agreed that the type of
manly proportions includes a compara
tively large head, wide shoulders, rather
square, a torso tapering to a contracted
pelvis; while the whole may bo 7 1-2
heads in height, or an additional half
head added to the length of the legs, giv
ing a particularly elegant figure.
On the other hand, fine proportions for
a woman are a small head, shoulders
rather sloping and narrow, the torso full
and widest at the hips; while the front
line from the sternum over the abdomen
should show first a fowntle, and then a full
The conventional figure of the day is at
variance with this type. Every effort is
made to imitate masculine characteristics.
The shoulders are thrust up high and
square, or made to appear so, the torso u
made to taper in, and everything under
heaven is done to make the waist look
small. The front line is forced to tako
an inward curve below the bust, and the
side lines to form an awkward angle, i:i
the hollow of which voluminous skirts
One should study sculpture with the
new knowledge of these proportions most
thoughtfully, till the rhythm of the lines
has fastened itself upon the memory.
Studying the pictures of the best artists
of every age, we shall find these princi
cles everywhere demonstrated.
The charm of womanly proportion is
in the long curve from armpit to ankle,
which is so different from the beauty of
a manly figure. The depression at the
so called waist line only the meeting of
two largo muscles which in a beautiful
woman should be slight would better
be ignored in the clothing for the sake of
the greater beauty of the whole sweep.
It is to be understood that the long
curves are made up of shorter contours,
one gently melting into another. A
form made up of graceful sweeps alono
would be a weak, nerveless, insipid thinp.
These proportions Bhould be bo under
stood and so thoroughly appreciated as
to be always in mind, else a beautiful
human form will not be recognized. Use
physical exercises to attain the perfec
tion of these curves. Hang pictures
showing them where they may grow into
your thoughts. Harper's Bazar.

Swallowed a Glass Eye.
Col. William Stilland was a well
known politician in an adjoining
State, says ail exchange, with only
one eye that is one good eye. In
the other socket he wore a glass eye.
Several years ago Col. Stilland was
stumping the State for a certain can
didate for governor with Maj. Thom
as Wilder, who was canvassing it
for the rival candidate. Col. Stilland
was careful to conceal his physical
infirmity from the major. When
they retired at night it was the colo
nel's custom to blow out the light,
take out his glass eye and put it in a
mug of water by his bedside. One
night, long after the two men had
gone to bed, the colonel heard some
one feeling objects about the room,
and started up.
"It's me," said the major's well
known voice and the sleepy colonel
was back at his dreams before the
speaker finished; "I am almost fam
