BY THE FEATURES Possible to Learn Life Story From Visage THE TELLTALE EYES Knowledge of Significance of a Man's Face, Every Feature Meaning Something—Byes, Chin, Fore head, Nose and Lips From the New York Times. It 1b said that every year thousands of dollars are lost through lack of ability to Judge a man's character by liis face, thus permitting Incapable men to occupy posi tions of responsibility. If this is true, tho ability to size a man up is a valuable business asset. It is evident that such an ability may enable one to avoid many mistakes In choosing friends or a life companion. For example, physlogonomists warn us to be ware of the “Gibson girl,” for, no mat ter how much she may he admired on the covers of our magazines, her profile rep resents the kind of woman thut no man should marry. The tilt of her nose. It is said. Indicates a lock of generosity; the forehead denotes cold calculation in deal ing with man. The mouth however, de notes the redeeming quality in her nature, that of tactfulness. No person's character should be Judged by one characteristic only, for a feature that indicates one good quality may he offset by another denoting a bad trait. The proper way is to estimate each by Its own value and combine all of them.

I, be considered are the facial angles, eyes, lips and their position, nose, chin and forehead. From a knowledge of the sig may be seen largely almost at a glance, may be seen alrgcly almost at a glance. The Telltale Eyes The most telltale indications of charac ter and those most often observed are the eyes. A great many characteristics may be read in their depths. Very dark brown or black eyes denote an impetuous tem perament. one capable of extremes of feeling and passionate, romantic love, i The russet-brown eye denotes an affec tionate disposition; the yellowish-brown eye indicates an inconstant, shallow dis position and little will power. The ideal of sublime purity is found in the violet or dark blue eye, but It Is well to note that not much Intellectuality is expressed'by this color. The clear, lighter blue eye denotes a cheerful, constant nature, Intellectual power and pasion nature, intellectual power and passion lectuality always. The pale blue eye also indicates intel lectuality as well as coldness and selfish ness. If the blue of the eye has a green ish tint, intellect predominates over the passions and wisdom and moral courage are characteristic of tne person. The greenish-gray eye is the most intellect ual. and the eye with varying shades of blue and orange is the eye of genius. A preponderance of green shades in the eyes denotes coquetry and artful deceit fulness. The dead colors and dull, expressionless eyes indicate the slugglish temperament, ' a lifeless disposition and cold, selfish, nature. A steadfast giance from brown eyes is an indication of amatory love. Rapid and constantly shifting movements of the eyes indicate the nervous, careful temperament and often suggest the crim inal. j The distances between the eyes also ! have their meaning. A great width be tween the eyes denotes a susceptible In tellect, while eyes close together are an indication of obstinacy. Rarge eyes usually mean a calm constant nature; deep-set eyes denote a selfish, determined and harsh temperament. The bulging eye indicates culture, refinement and gen tility. Next in importance ro the eye are the chin and lower jaw. The set of the jaw is a very faithful indication of the char acter of the man. The action of the mus cles in early life may determine the char acter of the chin. Thus, the man with the firmly set jaw has been accustomed to sot liis teeth in earlier life, and is found to be a man with great power, a man who will not be found wanting at a| critical time. Certain habits often determine the set of the jaw. For instance, no sailor ever has a weak jaw. All crews of fighters, who have been obliged to live on hard tack that requires much mastication, have! acquired a notable firmness of jaw. The habitual gum chewer can also be detected in the same way, the Jaw having acquired a greater prominence and firmness through constant use. Tobacco chewing also leaves its mark on the countenance. Tne long, lank jaw and firm mouth are the signs of the chewer. A curious resemblance may be seen as to shape of face and chin In many of the pictures of early Civil war soldiers, nearly all of them being long of face and sallow, with angular jaws and wrinkled cheeks. The majority of them were to bacco chewers. The modern characteroistlc seems to be a certain weakness of chin and jaw out line that may be due to the fact that our food Is largely prepared for us and re | quires little mastication. The shape of the chin is of considerable importance in reading character. A chin j smooth and round denotes a childlike disposition and a yielding will. The oval ! chin is an indication of an artistic, sensi tive nature, with some talent along those [lines, while the angular chin denotes the [ scientific, practical nature. The protrud ing chin always means combntiveness, de termination and power, and the receding chin denotes the weak will, and the straight chin denotes weakness. The long chin indicates a gross nature, and the short a timid nature. A short chin accompanied by full, fat cheeks, often is an indication of the singer. The dimpled chin is a sure sign of the artistic temperament, with talent for painting, music or sculpture. Tt is interesting to note that nearly all great men had dim pled chins. The manner of laughing is a reliable in dication of a person’s depth of thought and self-control. For Instance, the chronic gigler usually is a person of shallow thought, while the quiet person, who sel dom laughs and only rarely smiles, has a great intensity of feeling and thoughtful ness. The height of the forehead and shape of the skull Indicate brain power. The high forehead usually well filled with “gray matter," while the low, retreating * Old College “Grads” Cavort About Yale Campus i. itwi I . r " ^~ '.T r : A SPILL IN the HORSELESS POLOSAME AT VALE CLASS DAY.

Among the men who felt the class reunion spirit, who were garbed in the most grotesque j>r fantastic disguises, were some of the lending bankers, manufacturers and merchants of the country.

He is the principal property owner in a large Ohio city. Dozens of other instances might be mentioned, among which vis an exciting polo match with make believe ponies. forehead often indicates the low, animal nature. A person’s disposition may be read in the wrinkles in the face. Certain little lines at the corners i*f the eyes, often called crow’s feet, Indicate a jovial dis position, and perpendicular wrinkles be tween the eyes deiote a mischievous, happy temperament. The neck Is of no little importance in th judging of character. The long, thin neck Is the indication of an alert, nervous disposition; the short, thick neck denotes a dogged, pugnacious nature, while the long and very thick neck is said to he characteristic of the “old maid.’’ A con stant moving of the neck In conversation is a sign of the coquette. There are certain persons whom physi ognomists say should be avoided by certain other persons. Thus, the talker is warned to keep away from the person with the overhanging forehead, for he will prove exceedingly deep in argument. The business man is advised to watch carefully when dealing with the man with large curved and prominent nose, for he will prove shrewd In business. And the person with the chip on his shoulder should keep away from the man for woman either) with the retreating forehead, slightly turned-up nose and thick, protruding lips, for he will prove vicious and will never tight fair. The person with sharp, prominent chin and straight, firm mouth is usually an advocate of mutual love, hut will take every advantage 'within the law. The person who carries hbnself with head erect .and chest thrown out is self reliant and determined, while the one with head carried forwnrd and sunken i chest will usually be found hesitating and pliable.

Most of them will be delivered Mon day, but others going to distant states will not reach their destination till later in the week, while still others will travel to Europe, the Orient and South America. There is no denying that the past six months has been a trying time on the class of people who borrow from building and loan associations. There has been a scarcity of work for working men to do, and the payment on the home has meant hard living and close saving to many. We consider it good testimony to the sound and virtuous character of our borrowing stockholders, that out of the earnings of the last six months, actually collected, all expenses have been paid, the increasing exactions of the tax gatherer met, ah interest and dividends paid and a satisfactory amount remains to be carried to the surplus on July 1. $•' ■ '7 - ■$$/ $,«£** 'Vf> ^t|-??:.v: I * W* ':'■' .V*5$■;*;• I THE TALK OF THE TOWN ? • r ? / BLACH’S twelve windows are arranged in special display of Keep Cool garments for father I and son. i If BLACH’S interior display of winter effects in ice, snow, etc., with 50 or more big fans driv- j V- ing the hot air up and out, make this store a retreat for tired, heat suffering shoppers. | » •< BLACH’S store will cool you off and Blach’s summer garments will KEEP YOU COOL.
