Make Faces at Yourself, by Yourself, For Yourself. From the New York Fun. “Make faces if you. want to improve your face!” # This piece of advice is Seriously pre sented to all those ambitions persons who want to improve on nature’s idea of what they should look like. U is the conclusion of Prof. Anthony Barker, who can and does make faces to beat the band. “I admit,” he. says, “that it sounds both simple and silly to tell anybody Unit, in order to become handsome he should *» h make faces which are undeniably ugly, Vit it ta neither simple nor silly. If you make the riglif kind of faces and do it regularly for ten or fifteen minutes, either in the morning or at night, you will, find that it will work wonders in your appear ance.” #The sceptic didn’t doubt this. When he looked at the professor making faces ho was bound to admit that they worked wonders, nil right enough, but he didn’t feel himself stirred to emulation. The face maker went out to explain, though, that he’d look better after a while; better even than before he begun pushing his face to such extremities. “Whoever makes these faces,” said he, “will be blessed with features which are full of vitality. He or she will have that constant power of attraction which is possessed by any one who Is the picture of health. , “You can’t learn to make these faces properly without practice. You mustn’t think that any old face will d<». No, not any more than squirming and wriggling the body any which way will take the place of scientific physical exercises. “You practice for a while, and you will find that you are bringing into play facial muscles that haven’t been doing a day’s work for years. These muscles will thus be filled with a bountiful supply of fresh blood, making the skin clear and rosy, the flesh firm and rounded.” The professor has devised five faces, varying from a Gorgon-llke, staring ap parition of frozen horror to a twister the mere beholding of which gives the fas cinated spectator a cramp in his own face. Here is a sample of the directions for tills method of embellishing one's beauty: 1 "Exercise II.—Starting with the mouth ; shut, thrust out the lower Jaw as far as i possible and while holding It there1 draw the lower lips and ajacent muscles up toward the nose. Try to make the lip touch the tip of the nose. Bring all the muscles around the shut eyes as close together as you possibly can. Then try to open the eyes without succeeding. Do this until the muscles are tired. "This stretching of the chin muscles lakes away double chins and fills out hatchet ones. By concentrating numer ous muscles around the eyes, it broadens noses that are too thin between the eyes anil fills out sunken eye sockets and takes a Way puffs. "It Is better to do all the exercises gently at first. In this way possible rup ture of small facial blood vessels will be made Impossible. Making these faces also develops the neck and throat, tilling them out when scrawny and hardening them so as to render i,hem less liable to disease. "The chewing muscles also will be made stronger so that thorough mastication will be materially aided; and that, in turn, will contribute to better digestion and as similation of food. The exercises will cor rect excessive paleness as well as tile oilier extreme of violent blushing." The professor makes out a very strong case for his pet plan. Almost too strong, In fact. For when he says as lie does that after using these exercises "sunken eyes, hollow cheeks and abnormally thin noses will disappear," one feels inclined to put up with the features one happens to have, rather than to have them "dis appear" without perhaps leaving even a wrack behind. Familiar. From Harper's Monthly. "1 think Ethel Is old enough to go to Sunday school," said the proud little wife of the newly Hedged vestryman, somewhere in very suburban New Jer sey. So Ethel had a front seat in the Infant class the Bamo Sunday upon which her father Hrst passed the alms-basln In church. The rector told the children, In his most effective style, the dramatic story of the Infant Moses. He was Just under good headway, when Ethel’s birdlike treble piped up: “Iss zat my farvver’s 'Holy Moses'?” + .— PATTON-POPE DRUG CO. N. W. Cor. 3d Ave. 204K St t ..

PEARL FISHING AS DONE IN CEYLON How a Strange Industry is Car ried On TOWN OF PEARL SEEKERS Riffraff of the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf—The Methods Today the Same as In Solomon’s Time. A11 night the little steamship Bhadra has been slowly making her way. up the ' Ceylon coast from Colombo to the Gulf of Manar. As the dawn comes up sud denly we find ourselves slipping through the pearl fishery fleet with the divers waiting for the sun s warmer rays before beginning operations. Half an hour later we have made the sandy beach at Marich chikadde, and everything around tells us plainly that we are in “Pearl Town." There is a heavy nauseating odor hang ing in the air, writes a Colombo corres pondent of the Eondon Express, rolling along in heavy surges and making its presence felt like something tangible; It is a terrible smell, impossible to de scribe, and to be smelled nowhere else in the world—the Marichehikadde odor, the essence of millions of rotting oysters, for that Is the way the dazzling Orient pearl, the gem of the east, is obtained. We walk up from the beach to the Euro pean quarters of “Pearl Town," and beforq us, where a month ago was nothing but the waste of burning silver sand and the haunts of the jackal* the kite and the scorpion, now' stretches a busy town of -40,000 inhabitants, a mushroom city to live through a strenuous six weeks of toil and money getting, of hard labor and high gambling, and then to vanish and leave its debris to the packals. ^ Scum of the East. It Is peopled by the scum of the east, the wastrels of the Orient, the riffraff of the Red sea littoral and the Persian gulf—35,000 of the ugliest, truest sons of Mohammed, who would as readily knife a neighbor as whittle open an a pearl oyster. And this heterogeneous crowd, collected with the single aim of getting groat wealth in a rush, is ruled with a ready hut perfect justice by a mere hand ful of Englishmen—six civilians and a small posse of native i>olice. And these six men carry out the city's whole ad ministration. There are the police court, the hospital and the cemetery. The sanitary arrange ments of the town must be perfect, for the crowd hails from the cholera homes and the plague spots of Asia, and an outbreak would be disaster. The bank Is there, the post and telegraphic office, the auctioneer’s hammer and the “outside market”—everything essential for the greatest speculations. Everybody at “Pearl Town’’ is a gambler, yet serious crime is scarce, for they are too hard worked to fight. The pearl diver’s life is a strenuous I one. At 2 a. m. the camp" gun Art s, and ! before dawn the Arabs, in their long cloaks and headdresses of colled camel hair, are down on the beach. Amid much shouting the fishing fleet of boats of nil sizes and shapes known from Jeddah to ICoweit and Bahrein to Karikal puts off for the pearl banks. Interesting Scene Presented. The sun rising over the* land gives a golden glow to the bellying sails, w'hich, lying just off the* beach,' are In rich con trast to the turquoise sea. In a couple of hours the boats are over the bank appointed to be fished, which is marked out by buoyed flags. Eauli craft is crowd ed with men, and as wo step aboard one from the superintendent's launch an in teresting scene is before us. The enormous lateen sail of the boat Is lowered and stowed along the boom, over which the divers’ varl-shaped and many colored garments hang in the sun to warm; the center of the deck holds large baskets and sacks for the oysters, while temporary bulwarks enable the “man duks’’ to attend to the divers proper, and scattered over the sea around us are 300 such craft. Here is a finely built son of the Phophet just starting. HIb costume is of the scantiest and consists chiefly of a hone nose-clip to keep the water out and an open net* around his neck for the oys ters. He drops over the side, plants Ids feet on his sink-stone, grasps its rope in his hands, takes a mighty breath of air and shoots dowm feet foremost to the bottom. Watch him there, through thir ty feet of absolutely clear blue water. Fie leaves his stone, but maintains liis hand line in his hand, while his "man duk" on deck holds the other end; half ; crawling, half swimming, like a Mg | black frog, he gropes over the sea bot tom gathering in the oysters as he moves. Stays Below a Long Time. Will never come up? It seems to us, | watching, like an age. Suddenly tile line j quivers, the ''manduk’’ hauls in. and a | dripping head, gasping frantically for i air, shoots up from the depths. Eighty- j five seconds since he went down those | thirty feet, working hard the whole time | for his fat haul of oysters. A slight ] pause for air, and down he goes again. ! Thus with short periods of rest the divers work ail the morning until the noonday gun stops all fishing for the day. Then it Is up anchor, and a wild race for home follows. The wind is strong and a favorable one, and these huge sails bend the raking masts as the crews make every effort to cover the distance j and beach tlielr boats first. | The return of the fleet is the signal for much excitement ashore, from where the advancing boats look like a cloud of great gray sea doves rushing over the waves to the beach. The boats land and the divers hurry off to tlte government yards with tlielr takes. Each diver di vides his oysters in three equal portions, any two of which the government ser vants take as the government property, the third being the diver's share. The Ceylon pearl fishery is older than the hills for tn Solomon's time it was flourishing, and to day the methods of obtaining the pearls are precisely the same. Canoes made of hollowed out trunks, with no seams, are placed in light aheds, and filled with thousands of oysters, which are left to rot. A short time in tlds tropic heat suffices, and the millions of blue bottlefly maggots, "ver min bred of putrefaeted slime," complete the work, till nothing is left but dry oys ter shells, sand and pearls. These nro carefully washed, the shells picked over and the waste containing the gems Is carefully winnowed by girls. The Prize Sucker. Marion, O.—At Martel, Dominick Angelo sucked four dozen eggs and drank a glass of vinegar. He said the trick made him a "little sick at de stum." latter, after eating half a dozen bananas, Angelo offered to bet $500 that he could at one sitting suck five dozen eggs and drink a half pint of whisky.

ENSLEY DEPARTMENT TWO MEN INJURED IN ENSLEY WRECK Train Rushed Through an Open Switch ON THE ENSLEY SOUTHERN Easter Will Be Observed In Ensley Churches Today—East Thomas Is Enjoying Rapid Growth. Ensley, April 14.—(Special.)—As a result of an open switch about one and a half miles below this city on the Ensley Southern railway last night about 9:30 o’clock an Incoming mixed train from Short Creek, ran into a string of freight cars on a siding and Fireman Nelson Olson, a white man and Head Brakeman Pat Tolbert, a negro, werp painfully In jured. A passenger coach attached to the train was well filled with people, but none was injured. Engineer C. Worley was also uninjured, though lit had a nar row escape as also did a number of the passengers. The train was going with such force that the cars forced the tender into the cab of the engine, reducing it to a total wreck. Mr. Olson and the negro Tolbert were badly crushed about the body and legs. Both of Olson’s legs were fractured and badly mangled. The negro suffered a frac ture of one leg, but was otherwise mangled. They were carried to Copeland &■ Ber ry’s infirmary In Birmingham where they were resting as well as could be expected at a late hour tonight. Their injuries are not considered fatal. Engineer Worley stated after the ac cident that he could not understand how the switch was open its It was clofeed as the train went down to Short Creek earlier In the evening. It is very evi dent that some miscreant tampered with It after the train passed over on its way out of this city. The officials of the road are investigat ing the matter. In Ensley Churches.

Men with large insurance formerly scattered it among many companies says i World’s Work. Mr. John Wanamaker, ( for example, has $1,500,000 insurance in eighty-five policies. For a long time he carried the largest Insurance in the Uni* ted States. During the past ten years, however, very rich inen have taken out large single policies. The first $1,000,000 policy ever issued was: taken out in 1897 by Mr. George W. \ un derbill at the age of thirty-five, in the, Mutual. It is a 20-payment life, 20-year distribution policy; that is, he is to pay a yearly premium of $35,000 for twenty i years. At the end of this time lie will receive a paid-up policy of $1,000,000, and a cash dividend. If the policy had been taken out twenty years ago, at the san<p age, he would have paid by this time the , sum of $700,000 in premiums, which at \ 4 per cent compound Interest would amount to nearly $1,085,000. The most heavily insured man in the world, however, is probably Mr. L. Hod man Wanamaker of Philadelphia, who, 1 carries $2,000,000 in the Mutual, in addition to insurance in other companies. Mr. I Wanamaker first took out his insurance ir. the Mutual, amounting to $200,000, at , the age of 34. At 36 he increased it by two additional policies of $100,000 and , $500.COO. Five years later, at 41, he took two additional policies, one of $1,000,000 I and the other of $200,000. This makes Ills total insurance in the company $2,000,000, on which lie pays a yearly premium of $03,226. The Wanamaker family In Philadelphia carries a total of $3,855,000 in life insur- , ance, probably more than any other in , the world. The large policies, of course, cost no ■ more proportionately than smaller ones. ! Straight life Insurance of $1000 at the ] age of 30 costs $20 a year. For the same man. a $500,000 policy of the same kind would cost just five hundred times as much, or $15,000. The largest single premium ever paid was $663*023.28 by a man in Los Angeles. It was for an income policy or annuity in the Mutual. It provided a life Income for himself and at his deatli life incomes for bis children and his six grand chil dren. . Hut all rich men do net carry life in surance. Mr. Andrew Carnegie, for exam ple, does not believe in it, and does not carry a single policy. The same is true of Mr. John D. Rockefeller. Evidently. From the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “Too bad about young Toozler. He is the fellow who wrote the sensational magazine story, you remember. It was the only story he ever published.” “What about him?” “He was arrested last night for climbing on a porch and entering a ho\i8e." “That makes him a second-story man, doesn’t it?” * Keller,=The == Tailor MAKES CLOTHES—CASH OR CREDIT 1914 Ave. E, next to Postoltice. n Peoples Phone 26.
