The second nights play of that
exquisite society drama " Jlm.thePen
mau," was rendered at the opera
Iioubo last night with artistlo effect.
Too much eaunot bo said In praise of
the play itself or of the aotors in the
cast. The long run of popular favor
the first has enjoyed is a sufficient
criticism of its merits while In regard
to the performers they richly de
serve the plaudits they receive.
The next theatrical attraction will
be, "As in a Looking GlasR," a very
popular play rendered by the Miss
Lillian Lewis Company Thursday
night next, December 27th. Miss
Lewis is a rival of the xcngtry for
beauty, while her costumes and dia
monds are marvels of expensive
dainties. The Parisian toilets of Miss
Lewis cost over $26,000 and her Jewels
represent perhaps as much' more.
This Is the first appearance of the
company in Texas but 'it will not be
the last. Bead the press oplnnlons on
the play and company as they ap
pear dally in the News.

CONCERNING PHYSICAL BEAUTY.
Wbitt an Old Painter Said to a Chicago
lleporter An Artistlo View.
The old painter rambled along pleasantly
sntll tho scribe abruptly asked:
"What Is beauty, professorf
"Beauty?" lis exclaimed, astonished as if
tho question bod been the simplest one.
'Why, the human figure Is tbe most truly
beautiful work of creation, just as tho Grecian
templo is the most scientific specimen of art
Beauty in tbe abstract! Uniformity and
variety giro riso to two distinct kinds of
beauty, according to the predominance of
one or tbo other of these principles in tb
object There is a symmetrical and a pict
uresque beauty. Tbe former may be taught
according to what one may call geometrical
rule. The latter class of beauty, while per
ceived by tbe generality of mankind and
making its effect felt, can only be produced
m works of art by men of genius. Tbe high
est degree of perfection is tbo result of an
qual balance of both classes of beauty.
Mow, tbe nude human figure well developed
w an example of this, because the symmet
rical bcuuty bears to the picturesque beauty
an apparently equal ratio. For instance, tbe
lateral halves are perfectly uniform totba
ye, and tbe principal divisions In a really
beautiful lorm ought to nave certain rela
tions to each other.
"Thus, from the crown of the head to a
line, which In tho terrestrial globe would b
called tke equator, is one-half of the whdffc
fength. From tbe thigh joint to tbo knee
Joint, from the latter to the heel, and from
ibe elbow joint to the end of tbe longest
Anger is each one-fourth of tbo whole length.
From the crown of tho bead to the chin is
aue-eighth, wd from tho elbow joint to tbe
ihoulder jf-1nt Is one-fifth of tbe whole length.
Tho symmetrical beauty of tbe facial sur
face, wben viewed in full front, sbowatlmilar
kinds of proportions. Upou the conjugal
diameter of tbe oval form tbe eyes are hori
tontally placed. From tbe eyes to tbe end
jf tbe nose, from tbo latter to the chti., and
(rom tho top to tbo bottom of each car should
one-fourth of tbe whole length. Tbo
nouth should be placed at one-tblrd of the
ength between ncuo p.ud rbln, anil the mouth
ind each of tbe eyes should be horizontally
sr.oflfthjof tbe conjugal dlainrtr.
"it tseitlrely different with the plclureeq-
swutyof tbe human form. There are In tb
bst place light, shade and color. Secondly,
iberenre the ever varying undulations of
forms of tbe external muscles and tbe change
if tbeso foi ms by tbe Innumerable positions
tnd motions of the members to which these
muscles belong, and in tbe third place there
'a the expression of countenance depending
ipl'U the operations of tbe mind, nud tbe
joiresuondenco between this expression and
chit of tbe attitude and motion of tbe whole
iguro. All tbeso points form tbe picturesque
seauty with which genius alone can deal, for

The Christmas holidays are the most
dangerous of nil tho times of the year,
and it is not alone tho mischief lurking
in highly seasoned turkeys, egg-nog,
mince-pie, plum puddinc; and other
highly seasoned food, which derange
tho eptcattrum stomach and viscar,
Sroducing a complication of tcrriblo
iseases, out with names more terrible
than tho disease, but the holidays
when the ubiquitous, unterrified and
untamable hoy is let loose for a season
to afflict the earth with outlandish
noises and to burn down woodsheds,
stores, houses, etc., with Roman can
dles, rockets and other city destroying
pyrotechnics, and to gather piles of in
flammable materials, and build fires
close to inflammable buildings and
making of himself a dangerous torch
light procession, and it is, therefore, a
season of general alarm which a man
should contemplate with anxiety and
which he should provide against in
