LINES OF THE FACE.
THEIR RELATION TO THE BEARD AND
A Knowledge of Drawing on the
Part of Men, Says a Woman Artimt,
Would Have the Effect of Enhanc
ing Masculine Good Looks.
"A knowledge of drawing on the
part of men would have the effect of
increasing their good looks," said a
laly teacher of that art recently, "and
It would make presentable many a
man whose appearance is not calculat
ed to excite admiration. It sounds an
odd combination, drawing and beauty,
does it not? Nevertheless it is a fact."
To the natural request for an expla
nation she replied:
"The first principles of drawing are
geometrical lines and curves. These
lines and curves occur in everything.
A potter in criticising an ugly shaped
jug will most probably tell you that its
'lines' are bad. Most of those who dab
ble in drawing and gain certificates
merely learn to make these lines and
curves without acquiring the slightest
knowledge of their effect.
"Here is an example. Just take this
pencil and draw a face. Oh, anything
will do! But be sure to make two
straight lines over the eyes for eye
brows. That's it. See how serious that
"Now rub out those straight lines and
in their places make two curves with
the ends upward. That face has an ex
pression of intense surprise, hasn't it?
If you had made curved eyebrows with
the ends down in the first Instance, the
difference between the two would have
been more striking.
"Well, the human face has its 'lines,'
and by studying them our men could
improve their appearance. The most
elementary expedient is to adapt the
mustache and beard to the lines of the
face, and I must here tell you that
'lines' in technical language include
both straights and curves. Such an ex
pedient is "Ithin the reach of all, and
there Is no need for me to remind you
that the whiskers make a tremendous
difference in- a man's appearance.
"Take a man with an aquiline nose,
clear cut features and broad brow,
then imagine this individual with a
long, drooping mustache; why, it accen
tuates the whole 'droop' of the face
and spoils it. Such a man should have
a small pointed beard and a mustache
with ends pointing slightly upward.
"The exact opposite is also frequently
met with. A man with features that
have a distinct upward tendency will
wear a mustache with ends that are
turned up and so long that they seem
to be thinking of joining the eyebrows.
Men with mustaches that display an
inclination to grow long ends think that
these ends should be permitted to grow
and that they must be trained upward.
That strikes them as the only proper
way. But to suit the lines of the face
those ends should in many cases be
cut qff, and in others they ought to be
"Whiskers, again, are allowed to
grow whether they suit the face or not.
Often a fine, vigorous, manly face as
contradicted by an .insipid little mus
tache worn over a firm, clear cut
mouth, the expression of which It does
much to alter. It is quite a pity to see
such fine lines spoilt in that way. The
wearer cultivates the hirsute append
age merely because it is the fashion for
men to have a mustache. You talk
about women being slaves to Dame
Fashion, but in the matter of your
whiskers you men are worse slaves
than we are to dress!
"Now don't run away with the notion
that I advocate general shaving. Some
men who are clean shaved ought not to
be. The lines-of their faces simply de
mand tha f which they are depriving
their countenance every morning, It
requires a strong, very intellectual face
to do without beard or mustache. Tl:e
latter is an absolute necessity for hid
ing the bad lines of some mouths that
would if left totally uncovered spoil the
"Women as a rule are more careful of
their lines and choose hats and other
things to match. Men also study their
dress more than the hair on their faces,
but a knowledge of drawing would cor
rect many mistakes in hats, collars and
other masculine accessories.
"In the matter of color we rather
pass from the domain of drawing and
mere 'lines' and tresuass into the realm
of painting, but 1 cannot resist saying
that both men and women, especially
the former, would be all the better
looking If they knew more about the
blending of colors, because they would
not then choose hues which do not har
monize with their complexions. I have
known a man with red hair to wear a
red tie because red ties were fashiona
"We are all going in for 84 and the

An Eftort to Speak,

bark. They simply whine, howl and!

domesticated. Columbus found that to

brought to America and left at large,
for on his return he tells us that they

DRIVEN TO MADNESS.
TIMES WHEN AN EXCESS OF JOY IS
LINKED WITH INSANITY.
Sone of the Saddest Cames of Luuiacy
Are Those Where the Mind Is Tn
able to Stand the Shock of Sudden
It is no exaggeration to assert, said
an asylum doctor of long and varied
experience, that there are reores of men
and women in our asylums who have
literally been sent there through excess
of joy. Many of these cases which are,
In my opinion, the saddest of all have
come under my own observation.
I remember in the very first asylum
with which I was connected one of the
patients was a strikingly handsome
and very well educated man, who was
as sane as you or I except on one point.
He was really a man of considerable
wealth, but his delusion was that he
was a pauper, and he would tell the
most pitiful tales of his destitution,
begging, with tears in his eyes, for a
few coppers with which to buy bread.
According to the story told me, he
was the only son of a wealthy mer
chant. In his youth he had fallen
among evil companions and had led
such a dijssolute life that his father
not only threatened to disinherit him,
but forbade him ever to enter his house
again. After that he seems to have
sunk into the lowest depths of poverty
until he was glad to earn a few cop
pers by selling papers or matches in
It was at this last and lowest stage
that news came to him that his father
had died Intestate and that he was heir
to all his vast fortune. The sudden
news completely turned the man's
brain and brought on stch a condition
of excitement that he had to be sent
to an asylum, and when le caluied
down again he had lost all regllection
of his good fortune, and notuing can
shake his delusion that he is on the
verge of starvation.
Another patient in the same asylum
was a youpg and in his lucid momuents
a most intelligent fellow, whose 'brain
was turned," as the saying is, on learn
Ing that he had passed an examination.
He had sat for the matriculation exam
ination at the University of London, on
passing which he had set his heart
and had askied a friend in London to
wire the result as soon as the names
were screened at Burlington House.
About three weeks later came a fatal
telegram,."Failed-sorry," which sent
the young man into the lowest depths
of despair, for he was too old to sit
again. Not many hours later, however,
came another telegram, "Passed honors
-very sorry crush so great did not see
name this morning." The revulsion
of feeling was so great that the stu
dent's reason gave way, and he be
came so violent in his excitement that
he had to be confined. Fortunately he
was not with us long and Is now, I am
glad to know, doing very well as a so
'Dsappointed love sends many peo
ple to asylums, but it is very seldom
that success in wooing drives a man
mad. It had this strange effect, how
ever, on one of my late patients. The
girl he loved had gone out to ladi.a to
keep house for her brother before he
had screwved up his courage to the point
of proposing to her, but an offer fol
lowed by mail very quickly after her.
Weeks and months passed, and no an
swer came to the Impatient lover until,
after waiting two years in despair, he
became engaged to a girl who had
nothing but her money bags to recom
mend her and for whom he had not a
particle of love. Scarcely, however, was
his fate sealed than he received the
long despaired of letter from India, ac
cepting his offer and explaining that
the girl's brothler had received and mis,
laid the letter, which had only just
been found and had come into her
Within an hour of the receipt of this
letter the man was a raving maniac,
and although his condition is Improved
I doubt whether he will ever recover
his reason. .
In another remarkable ease it was
the joy at seeing her husband again
that robbed a lady patient of her rea
son. Hecr husband was the captain of
a merchant ship which was reported
to have gone down with all hands. The
widow bad deeply mourned her hus
band for'nearly a year, when one day
on returning from a walk she found
him sitting In the drawing room as
hale and robust as ever.
With a shriek she fell unconscious on
the floor, and when she recovered her
reason was gone. It seems that her
husband, after floating for some time,
ad been picked up by a passing
"tramp" and had been, lalided on the
west coast of Africa, frem which he
had returned home by the first availa
ble vesseL-London Tit-Bits.
