CHANGE IN COLOR OF EYES
By No Means Uncommon, and Easily
Accounted For, According
Tho possibility of a man's eyes
Changing as tho result of mental
shock or physical in treatment was
the subject of an Interesting discus
sion by a number of surgeons in tho
eye ward of one of the great London
One of the surgeons stated: "It Is
common knowledge that great phys
ical hardships may suddenly turn tho
hair white. The loss of color here
follows on certain chemical changes,
duo to disturbances of nutrition, tak
ing place in the tiny particles of
coloring matter which give the hair
"All infants at birth have blue
eyes. In some babies. Immediately
after birth, pigment granules begin to
develop In the Iris. Thus they be
come brown or black eyed. In others,
however, no such pigment formation
takes place, and the eyes remain blue
or gray throughout lifo.
"If this at present blue eyed ex-con
vict is really the missing brown
eyed banker, a reasonahlo explana
tion of the discrepancy In the eye
colorings would be that under tho
atress of physical and mental shock
tho coloring matter which had In
early life developed In each iris had
atrophied or disappeared, leaving tho
eyes tho original blue coloring pres
ent at birth."

Of all the things that may befall a
church, nothing could be much strang
er than the destruction of a little
house of worship north of Hudson Bay,
as once reported by Bishop Williams
He had attended a synod of th<-? Ca
nadian church at Winnipeg, and th"ro
had seen a missionary bishop, who
had been six weeks on the way, hav
ing come most of the distance In a
canoe. The missionary bishop report
ed gravely that the diocese of a broth
er bishop had "gone to the dogs."
Being asked for an explanation, he
said that the Eskimos in -he diocese
had built a church with whales' ribs
for rafters, and covered It with walrus
hide. Tho little church held eighty
persons; but In the time that elapsod
between two services the building was
eet upon by a pack of famished dogs,
and demolished In a few hours.?
