In the seventeenth century It was Bold
headed and made of rare woods. It
was a sign of leadership.
For a long period there was little
variety among I'.nglishmen In the ma

sticks. The "oaken towel," as it was
pleasantly termed when an eueiny was
to he "rubbed down," shared popular

among rural folk especially, was much

It is popularly believed that If one's
eyebrows meet It indicates deceit
"Charles Klngsley indorses this belief,
but Tennyson has other Ideas and
poetically speaks of "married brows."
In Turkey meeting eyebrows are
greatly admired, and the women use
artificial means to bring the brows to
(his condition, and if art cannot in
duce thin eyebrows to grow they make
up by drawing a black line with paste.
It would appear that the Oreeks ad
mired brows which almost met. and
the fashionable inhabitants· of Home
not only approved of them, but re
eoneu ίο pigmenis to mase up imp
lark which sometimes existed.
Rome proverbs stnte that the person
whose eyebrows meet will always
have good luck. while others state ex
actly the reverse. The Chinese say
that "people whose eyebrows meet
can never hope To attain lo the dig
nity of a minister of state." and in
Greece of today the man whose brows
meet is said to bo a vampire, while In
Denmark and Germany It is said he

Record Time for Cirrus,
A record time for heavy trains
was made recently on the Houston
and Texas Central railroad, when the
Barnum & Bailey circus was trans
ported from Houston to Mexla and
from Mexia to Denison The run
from Houston to Mexia, a distance
of 181 miles, was made in seven
hours. The run to Denison, a dis
tance of 157 miles, was made in ap
proximately the same time. When
! the weight of the circus train is con
isidered, it may be easily seen that
j the average of approximately twenty
