To Have Beautiful Arms

By IDAH M'OLONTC GIBBON
Bcfwity Expert of the EVENING
NEWS »n<l Author of "Confes
sions of it Wife."
"One might almost find the lost
crms of Venus on Cavalière," said the
man who was walking through the
Metropolitan museum with me."
He was wrong, for Cavallerl's arms
are too slender for the wonderful
statue. Ideals of beauty change and
today the modern beauty must l\r»l
have elenderness.
Cavallerl's arms conform perfectly
to modern Ideas of feminine beau(.y.
They taper from shoulder to ν , tel;
they are round, with no ugly en';irge
ments at the elbows, which are softly
dimpled.
Much of the beauty of a woman'»
arms depends on the color and tex
ture of the skin. A. beautiful urnj
should Invite touch by Its delicate
transparent whiteness and appear
ance of softness.
If you have hair on your arms It
can be dissipated by using a paste
made of barium sulphide, 80 grain»,,
and powdered chalk, 400 grains. Mix
well together and then wet Into α
smooth paste. Cover the arms with
paste, lot It remain for' about flv®
minutes, then scrape off with an Ivory
paper knife. Rub on cold cream af
ter washing.
If the hair on your arms Is not
very heavy use peroxide of hydrogen
to bleach It so that It will not be
noticeable.
For skin of coarse texture on the
upper arm, wash every night with a
lather made of pure castlle soap an<l
very hot water, uslns a stiff flesh
brush. Then use cold cream ovei?
upper arms and elbows to keep them
from growing old looking.
GIFT TO MONMOUTH.
Red Bank Man Offers to Put Up Hit·
toricai Building.
Red Bank, Aug. 17.—E. D. Adams of
Rrnnson borouph, member of the Mon
mouth County Historical society, has
offered to erect η building for the so
ciety. The plane call for Its use as a
headquarters and for the exhibition
there of nil of the valuable relics of the
society.
A proposed site for the building has
been suggested on the high school prop
erty In Branch avenue, and at a recent
meeting of the board of education John
8. Applegate, Jr., son of the late John
8. Applegate, who was president of the
society f°r many years, asked the
board glvo the property. A special
meeting will be called soon to discuss
the proposition.

WES BANTAMS INTO ARMY
jj^ , .
I„^ash'"8rt°n· Aus· ".—The army of
17 will be an army of bantams
compared to the boys of '61.
The minimum height for the army
used to be 64 inches. Now Its 61.
The army will be thinner, too.
1^'O^OHt Marshal General Crowder
CT |Ί lull IIIIIlN^ » I'Millι
from Surgeon General Oorgim jeducfiîff
; the regulred weights for men of (14 to
7fi Inches In helg-ht from 6 to 10
pounds, according- to height.
Chest measurements for men over
G8 inches are reduced one-half an Inch.
Tho helgllt reduction made before
the aelectlve service law was putclnto
operation on recommendation of the
National Council of Research.
The Council found the old standard
—64 inches—had been adopted when
the country was populated principally
by the tallest races, North Europeans,
Negroes and Indians.
If retained, nt least one-foyrth of
the southern Hlavs, south Italians,
Russians and Austrian Jews, French
and Swiss would have escaped military
service.
The 61 -inch minimum contrasts
poorly with the average heights of civ
il war soldiers. The average of 260,000
recruits for the federal armies was
over 67 Inches, the native Americans
of Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio and
Indiana leading with an average of
over G8 Inches. New Knglanders,
Canadians and men from west of the
Mississippi followed closely.
Swedes and Scots lod the foreigners
of '61; the Irish led both the Knglish
and the Germans who trailed last with
an averagre of 66 2-8 Inches.
All were big boned men of the tallest
races ever bred. It was (in age of
farmers, outdoor work and cheap food.
Since that time have como the hordes
of «mailer men from the Mediter
ranean countries, descended from
generations of town dwellers.
The civil war Itself helped cut down
the height of the native stocks, as the
biggest men perished and left the
smaller ones to be fathers.
As the bulk of the federal armies
were under twenty-one years of ago
—few of the men killed had any rep
resentative lu the next generation.
The physical results of the sweat
dhop and faoborlee can be read today
In the small men of the British armies
recruited from factory towns, who are
topped by the Frenchmen, In spite
of the fact that France today tells the
story of the Napoleonic carnage in
tho shrunken stature of her men.
Reports from various sections of
the country show that there are whole
sections of the population which have
deteriorated In other ways.
Tho southern negro, once the
huskiest of humans, still furnishes
Jack Johnsons from the country and
smaller towns, hut In the cities a ter
rifying per cent, are hopelessly dis
eased. Tn some of the city districts
populated by sweat t>hop workers ft
large per cent, of the men are useless. ·**

BIANGA DE SAULLES MAY NOT LIVE THROUGH
HER TRIAL, SAYS IDAH M'GLONE GIOSON
Ily I<l«li McGlono Gibson.
New York, August 17—You would
hardly think a woman could be bo
thin and yflt show no weakness. Ul
anea de Saullee Is over medium height
and weighs less than a hundred
pounds.
She has the blanrhed skin of the
woman born near the tropics. Just
now her great brown eyes seem to
look from caverns In α face of un
earthly whiteness.
Her hair Is beautiful—dark, but
not of midnight blackness and she
wears it parted and combed back
from her forehead In a way that gives
her the look of a young madonna. In.
deed, young as she is, your first im
pression Is that of tho universal
mother.
She only seems to feel when her lit
tle son Is mentioned. Two of his pic
tures aro In the room where she is
confined and one or the other of them
is »eldom out of her hands.
Her palo blue tub dress Is of the
simplest material and cut and Its
white collar and turn back cuffs re
veal the slender throat and hands of
a woman of good birth and breeding.
"I have never met a womun who so
surely seemed to fulfill my Idea oi
proud Castilllan blood," eald her at«
torney, Mr. ITterhart.
She Is extremely pathetic. Yo*|
have η feellns when you look at h ef.
that she In only physically alive, that
the eoul of her Is hunting through
space for the child she continually
asks about and boss to see.
Only once has the falntcet tinge of
color crept Into lier tragic face, xvhcà
slio was asked If It were a case of love
at first sight lictwen her husband and
herself. Then as If a candle were
lighted within, a faint j>lnk color
brought a spark of life to the blandb
whiteness of her face. It diol away
aa quick as It came and she dropped
lier eyes like a shy girl ae she mi·
swered, "Yes."
Unless her desire to live has been
awakened by the elsht of her boy, or
will be awakened by the loving em
brace of hor mother now o" the way
from Chile to comfort lier, I predict
Blanca de Saullos will not live through
her trial.
Being a woman I know «he woulfl
wolcome death with open arms If sh·
did not have to leave her «hi Id b·*
hind.
