' ¦ ¦¦ ¦ ,¦- ¦ ¦ THE SUNDAY CALL.- INTERESTING studies are neither few nor difficult to find in the borough -of Brooklyn, but it is doubtful -whether among them there is any more unique than one that is to be. found on an upper floor of the building at 467 Fulton street, wnere.a white' placard, fastened on a door, bears the legend, " Mi ss Adelaide Tukey.

Th«y constituted a part of our ancestral heritage. Washington used hla crest, and so, too, did Benjamin Franklin and Peter Faneuil of Boston. President Adams had a crest also, although many persons be lieve that h» designed It himself, but this is detailed. All this photography can do.

In this case .the make-up has done more than anything else to make the difference; hat and style of hair dressing have changed the poser's appearance.

Notice what very different girls ruch a one has made of Pearl" Landers. That is a pretty way of bsgg^ng the question and does not amount to a row of pins. The sun cannot but the camera can and does. You have heard it said that photo graphs must be truthful because the cun cannot lie. The camera lied. The greatest difference lies in tLs nose. You would never guess from, the full face view that this • is the long, somewhat pointed nose of the profile. It carries the impression of being rather short and flat. Tho^ace was thrown out of focus in this view. That's what does it. Now in the other picture you will notice that the full face represented Icoks as if it belonged to another woman. . - • There is a shadow upon the face The light is not thrown strongly upon the features as in the other view, and the drapery thrown over the head adds to the shadow made by the hair. ' The face is downcast in stead of thrown upward in a hopeful attitude. Wherein does the trick lie? If you will look at the profile view you •will notice that it is sharp, clear, the lines of the profile being as dis tinct as if clipr^d from cardboard. The light falls clean and bright on the outlines, showing them strongly. The nose here appears rather long end perhaps a little sharp. Now the camera may have told the truth either one time or the other, but certainly not both times. They are as different as day is from night, or, to be more comple mentary, as one day is from another, and yet they are both portraits of Grace Moblots. She swears it and the photographer does likewise. "Would you ever believe that those two pictures of Grace Noblots, fcr instance, were of the same woman? DOES the camera lie? Look on this picture and then on that and say, does the camera lieP DOES THE CAMERA EVER LIE?
