A woman's eye! Who has ever been able to
fathom its depths of power? What poet has ever
sounded In his song the entire romance of its
mystery? What prince or pauper has not felt
the enslaving fascination of Its limped thrall?
FROM the creation of Eve woman's power
has been supreme; and that power has
not been entirely due to her beauty
and grace of form and feature, to her *
wit and wisdom, or to her ability to
conceive, arrange and direct the life
of a kingdom. To the subtle magic of
her eye —me potential agent of her ev
ery other charm, is due the laurel of
her supremacy. And this for the
Reason that woman's eyes are but two portals
leading to the mysterious fountain-head of her
soul, now revealing, now concealing its secrets.
This explains why man, poor, weak creature,
has always been her slave —a very willing slave
enchained with bonds, that he would not sever
for the world's great wealth.
But woman's eyes, although ixiately possessed ,
of power sufficient to accomplish her most com- ,"
monplace ambition — the subjugation of man—are
just like the brain, they have to be educated.
And the I'ettcc the woman understands the ways.i
and means of using them the greater power they
are bound to exercise. t .
They say it is all in the way a girl looks at a
man. That Is all light enough, but I don't care
how attractive the girl may be. how deep her
eye-sockets are* how large around her eyes may
be. how dark their pupils, or how intense their
light, they will amount to little and do small
damage unless she knows how to U3e them. And
to a woman the art of using her eyes is as es
sential as thp art of conversation —and even more'
so. for women have been known to wreck dynas
ties by a mere glance, with never a word spoken.
It is an established fact that the feminine eye^
has more various and manifold expressions than

that of man. This is because the emotional life
of woman is richer and more primitive than
man's. We speak of beautiful, hideous, speak
ing, silent, warm, soulful, or cold eyes; of a firm,
tender, furtive, deceitful, candid, piercing,
searching, appealing, confident, expectant, scorn
ful, exalted, downcast, gentle, pensive .glance.
In fact, there is scarcely a tone of feeling in the
intricate scale of sweeping feminine emotions
which does not send its messages to the outer
world through the magical language of the eyes.
Of the art of using the eyes there are many,
phases. The art of looking a person in the face....
lies in looking at the entire face, all in one kind
ly sweep. To look direct into a person's eye is
generally uncomfortable to that person. The
person who sits and stares at you when you are
talking is the one who does not know how to use ;
the eyes well. j There are too many defects ex
posed by this operation—the squint, the frown, .
the inequality in size of the eyes, etc.
The girl with the small eyes must learn to use
them effectively. If they are of the little wink
ing sort she must study how to control the
nerves of the lids so that she need not wink so .
desperately nor so often. She must strengthen
her eyes by lotions and she must get them so
; that they wink only in a normal manner. This
is a hard task for the winking girl to learn and
sometimes it requires the services of an oculist
before she can. acquire the habit of winking' Just
often -enough to protect the eyes, but not often '
enough to be unsightly,
A great many people wink too often. They
get into the habit of doing so and they cannot
break themselves of it. It in like a twitching of
the eyes and It gets to be distressing. That it
Is disfiguring there Is little doubt, if you have
ever watched a person who winks too much.
The girl with the little eye* should learn how
to lower them effectively. She should learn how
to flash them Just a little, and she should learn
how to look out of what some one calls the tall
of the eye.
But the girt with small eyes should not try to
languish with them. She should remember and
keep constantly in mind the thought that her
eyes are not beautiful to look upon, and that
when she sits in dreamy gaze the sight Is not an
inspiring one. It Is more apt to look as though
she were in the dumps,
For she of the big, dreamy orbs, it is easy to
team how to use them effectively. She can be a
fit. Cecelia by simply lifting her eyes and looking

at the ceiling, and by lowering them she can

A noted specialist recently advertised that he
cculd enlarge the size of the eyes, and he was
almost immediately swamped with patients. And
he lived up to his declaration. This is the way
he accomplished it:
He took them in hand and began massaging
the face. Then he advised a course of diet; and
finally he made them take violent physical ex
ercise. All the while he was reducing the cheeks
by massage.
As the cheeks became thinner and the flesh
was reduced from the body, the patient became
hollow-eyed, so to speak, and the eyes grew
larger, for their is no doubt that the lids and
the brows do fatten with the rest of the face.
It is a mistake for the girl whose eyes are
small to try to make them expressive by pen
ciling. This method shows too plainly and
comes off after an hour or two.
In order to use the eyes properly and to the
best advantage a woman must know how to
hold her head. She must have the trick of
looking at you, not in a slanting way, but with
eves on the level with yours. This is much pret
tier than lifting the eyes, for there are few sets
of eyes pretty enough to stand being lifted.
The way she looks at a man. Yes—but in so
doing she must consider their color, their shape,
their size, their depth and their degree of ex
pressiveness. On all these things the beauty of
the eyes rests. •
Regarding the different expressions of the
eyes a volume might be written. The "con
fident" eye is a glance steadfast and direct to
the front. It is opened neither more nor less
than is necessary. There Is no tension of mus
cle* to be seen in such an eye. The "appeal
ing" eye also directs its glance forward, but at
an angle slightly inclined upward. Clear and
woulful. It appears to seek whence its help will

tion «f the glance and in the poise of the head.
