one gave them thought enough to carry
the curiosity further.
But one day last spring an Arab happened to be passing through the station,
and liis eye traveled over the building.

exclaimed. '' those Arabic decorations

As early as oflO B.C. artificial e*yes
were made by the priests of Rome and
Egypt, who practised as physicians and
surgeons. Their methods of eye-ma king
are thus described:
Du a strip of flesh-tinted linen, two
and a quarter by one and a quarter
inches, the Hat side of a piece of earthenware, modeled life-size and painted to
represent tlie human eye and eyelids,
was cemented, This linen, coated on
the other side with some adhesive sab-
stance, was placed over the eyehole
and pressed down. Tn brief, the artificial eye was worn outside the socket,
and, though a elurnnj substitute, was
probably appreciated by the Romans
and Egyptians. In the ruins of Pompeii, destroyed in 79 A.D,, an eye of Mii,
description   was  discovered.
Not until the sixteenth century
we hear of eyes at ail like those of fco
day—that is, worn inside the socket.
A French surgeon, one Ainbroise Pare,
invented three artificial eyes. One -consisted of an oval plate covered with so'fr.
leather, on which an eye was painted.
It was attached to the head by a strong
steel band. Tt eould have been neither
sightly nor comfortable. The second
device, and the first known in history
to be worn inside the socket, consisted
of a hollow globe of gold deftly enameled. The third eye devised by this ingenious gentleman was a shell pattern
eye, much like that in use today, except that it was of gold and enamel.
Pare's inventions were followed by
eyes of painted porcelains and covered
pearl whit p.
Glass eyes were invented about the
year 1579, and were crude productions
of inferior workmanship, the iris and
pupil being hand-painted in a far from
lifelike manner. Shakespeare mentions
glass eyes in "King Lear," wdiere the
king advises the blinded traitor Gloucester to "get thee glass eyes and seem
to see.'' --

tho braiding docs not interfere with the lines, which are very
simple and display every good point of the figure to the best
■advantage. In this model the waist line i.« absolutely normal
in its placing, and in truth it seems as though every detail
had been planned to keep thc outline as simple as possible.
*    ■    *
After advocating, or at all events admiring, simplicity
of style, it must be carefully considered that there ia always
clanger of an exaggerated simplicity, and in the newest fashions tliis very point must be noticed. The absolutely tight fitting ccat frock, n one-pieca gown buttoned up the back, is
tod trying a fashion i'or any but the exceptionally beautiful
figure, and even the modified imitations with the plaited skirt,
or rather the plaited flounce, as finish to tho sheath fitting
gown, is not sufficient to entirely remedy the too conspicuous
outline of the figure. And yet the fashion has much that is
good ubout it, and so tho clever woman recognizes, for she
lias the model copied with a modification of the too close (it-
ting, too scant skirt and with bands of trimming on the waist
that break the too severe appearance most marvellously.
There are many new fabrics, but all the old favorites are
not thrust aside, and while the softer, more clinging materials
| are best suited to the draped, close lifting gown, the stiller
| silks aad heavier weight goods are more in demand than they
have been for some years.    Serge is one of the materials that
I have experienced a curious- change of finish these last few
I months. The liner weaves and softer finish are now much
smarter than the wide wale and coarse, hard appearance that, i
after all, was far better for winter wear thun for spring aud |
summer, and the serge of this spring can be made up in the
j close fitting one-piece gown most satisfactorily.
White tnbable frocks are among the fascinating new
things being put out by some of the Parisian houses as ad-
[vance modes for the summer,   one of these is a tenuis frock
of white linen.   The skirt is perfectly plain in front and part
I way around the sides.   The back and part of the sideB is laid :
in side pleats.   There is a very deep hem on the skirt, almost
to the knees, ami above lins is a flat fold of linen.    The skirt!
is  imt   \eiy  short   for such   a   purpose,  as   it  just  clears  lhe
'I lie bodice  its a blouse which fastens in the back.    It is
I scant in front, the material being draw i to the side? in two
pleats and fastened with pearl buttons.   This bl..use tit*; over
la tight fitting under bodice, to which elbow sleeves are ul
I filched.    The effect is that  of a jumper.    Then   arc under-1
j sleeves of embroidered uol and the collar is also of the em-!
broldored net.     lt is a shallow sailor collar, fastened with a
| black satin bow with tassels on the ends.
A most charming go Wil nf ivory linen, very flue and sheer,!
'is a mass of embroidery.    liOxcepI for the elaborate embroid
ory, the gown is a very simple one, the general lines being
strikingly severe.   The skirt is perfectly plain, fitting smooth-!
| ly over Ihe hips. It is nf gunnel length, with just enough
fulness to be graceful in the lower part. The bodice, a simple-
and very scant blouse, has fiat guimpe which extends over the !
sleeves in round points. The sleeves are perfectly flat ia the,
upper part and quite close fitting; they reach a little below
the elbow. The neck is cut out a little in a rotind shape and'
finished with a narrow frill.    With this gown is woi'U a crush-,
The   death   frust   lies   where   late   the

shadows pass
Of naked boughs where clover blossoms

The straws to right and left;—from

Of box and arbor-vitae sounds,—alas!

Thou ceaseless Nature?—ocean calls.

An interesting model for a spring gowu is of light weight
; cloth   trimmed   with   braiding  and   borders  of   fringe.     The
arrangement of the overdress is oue that would probably be
j becoming to a large number of women  because of the fact
■ that the bodice and  the   overskirt   in   one  piece  insures  a'>
| length of line which is not otherwise readily obtainable with1
i the overskirt.
Crepe de chine, voile de soie and, later, the summer fabrics.
| especially  foulard and mousseline de soie,  will  be  made up I
after this model.   When the material is on the order of chiffon
or mousseline de soie the place of the braiding will be takeu
I by allover laee used either over or under tulle or chiffon.    A
very charming frock of this sort has already beeu  made up,
after this model in a peculiar and interesting shade of red
.voile dfi side.    White lace is used in place of the braiding on |
the skirt, the bodice ami the sleeves, and is made to tone in;
! with  the gown  most  beautifully  by  being  veiled  with  thin!
chiffon in the red of the gown.
Rather remarkable is the design for a spring coat.    While
the coat was developed in cloth and trimmed with satin, the!
| design is also being used for coats of linen, silk, pongee and!
I crepe do chine.    The model is not only a smart one but it is!
, becoming to a great many figures, and' will lie found to cause]
I less self-distrust to women whose figures are no longer sylph-
! like than do  most of the new  models with  their continued
appeals to slenderncss and long lines.
The suit was made of green  cloth  with  black  trimmings
and buttons of green, black  and  silver.     With  the suit was

tuine. It in in consetjuunue extremely hard to decide, especially siti there are still tu be found tho must; wonderful bargains
iu thr left over winter stuck, many of which aro quitu up to
date, very smart and perfectly suitablo i'or the present moment and will be so for months. It is almost trito to repeat
tho statement that the very latest winter fashions ure the
same as arc taken fox models fnv spring and summer styles,
while also some one fashion that has been proved popular for
lb.** winter i.u copied in dilfercnt material for tin* spring and
summer seasons.
There is undoubtedly strongly marked tho note of eccentricity and individuality—by no means the same tiling, be it
understood—but also this spring thore arc many mnn' what
may be termed reasonable models, wiulo tlio majority of stylus
show much more simplicity of design and more caroful consideration of what is suitable. For instance, thero are strictly
tailor made costumes whicli depena absolutely upon tho lines,
the cut and lit, rather than upon ornamentation or trimming
of any kind. The more elaborate street gowns ean, on the
contrary, be sn elaborate as to make them quite possible for
reception wear. As yet no marked originality of design lias
made its appearance and there is nothing absolutely unlike
what has been put forward tentatively for the general public
to decide upon.
Will full skirts be popular? This is a serious question, for
whicli as yet no unanimous vote has been cast. Pleated and
gathered skirts, accordion plaited and gathered all round, are
exhibited as models for crepe de chine, silk and all wash
| (Materials, but they have not as yet been madly sought for.

Overskirt., have arrived, and if there is not a double skirt
theu the effect must be given by the cut aud trimmings. The
pointed tunic or double skirt effect is the must generally bo-
Coming, but tliere are several effective models with draped
overskirts or with extra material draped to look like a double
skirt. There is more than a hint of the old fashioned window
drapery in some nf the new gowns, but il is a fashion that
requites the greatest skill and the best of work to be ut all
satisfactory, and at its best it is uot a fashion to lie entered
into rashly by the woman wlio cannol afford an endless number uf gowns.
One nf the newest skirts has a distinctly odd appearance,
for it is cut in two pieces, the upper part quite close fitting,
the lower quite Q full tlnunce, gathered or plaited as the case
may be, and the two joined under a band of some trimming;
it is al the moment a fashion for the gowns of crepe do chine,
soft silk nv silk voile, but will be undoubtedly chosen as a
popular model for the wash materials. II. is the revival of a
style of many years past, but with modifications and new
touches that make it seem quite new and original. The waist
is extremely simple in design, with a slight blouse effect and
has either curved 'surplice folds showing a V-shaped yoke or
is finished with an embroidered frill and turned back cuffs
to match.
Simplicity and beauty of line are most, distinctively shown
in many of the simpler models iu voile de soie, eachemire de
soie and the must charming of the soft linished silks and
satins. One most favorite model has not one particle of trim-
miug. Tho material is ruse pink satin with double skirt, and
the upper skirt is draped, while the waist is in soft draped
surplice folds, bias bands of the same material. It is simplicity itself, this model, but made in black, white or colors
is most graceful and becoming, it is nut su easy tu make as
might be thought at first glance, but, keeping always in mind
that the lines must he unbroken and with a perfect fitting lining the tnsk is a possible one.
Por those who love trimmed gowns thin season will afford
an unexampled opportunity to indulge their taste for ornamentation. All kinds of trimmings are displayed and in endless
variety, while tliere are many of the newest fashions for
afternoon and evening gowns that depend largely upon their
trimming. Soutache braiding, of which there was so much
last season, appears again, but of course with some change
and variety. Soutache braiding on satin and crepe de chine
gowns is smarter this season than on the lighter transparent
fabrics, and a very popular model is the satin or crepe do
chino gown with the effect nf a braided tunic. The material
in itself iu an delightfully soft and drapes so beautifully that

Pigeons and the sallo d*Escrime in the Casino building, aspirants to the niiicf; of croupier learn how to operate gaming- \
tables.    Ench pupil must from time to time, while others are;
impersonating players antl  making their respective stakes,
conduct the game and learn at an instant how to calculate
and pay out  the winning stakes. Generally there aro about!
sixty   or  seventy   pupils  in   this  Bchool,  and   a   uix   months'
course  is deemed sullit.iont to make them  finished croupiers.
There is in Brussels a school for the teaching of a gruesome occupation—that of grave-digger.    It was founded by

Formulae Have Been Well Tried Out
Though the NA-DRU-CO line of Medicinal and Toilet Preparations have been on eale
for a few mouths only, don't think for minute that in buying NA-DRU-CO goods you are
experimenting with uew or untried preparations.
Their Origin
The twenty-one wholesale drug fcnn.s now utciteil
in the "Natiouaia" had all of them lengthy careers,
some for fifty to one hundred years, prior to ihe union.
Each firm had acquirecnl or developed a number of
valuable formuhe for medicinal and toilet preparations,
all of which became tbe property of the; "National".
Since the union our expert chemists have carefully
gone over thewe formulie and selected the best feer the
NA-DRU-CO line. Every formula ha. been carefully
studied by these experts, improved if possible, and
then thoroughly tested aRsin, in actual use, before
we consider it good enough to bear the NA-DRU-CO
Trade Mark.
a\n Example
A good eexample of what wc mean is NA-DRU-CO
Nervozone for Brain Fag or nervous break-down.
The formula was pronounced the most scientific combination of nerve medicines, but this was enough for
us ; we had it tried out with a dozen different kind of
Brain workers — School Teachers, Lawyers, Bookkeepers—as well as Society leaders and home workers,
and everywhere the result was so jood that we adupteel
tt as one of the best of the NA-DRU-CO line.
Tlce.-re are therefore no experiments amor-fee
NA-DRU-CO preparations, We have invc ted alto-
Rethcr i»K> much tune, work nuel money in the
NA-DRU-CO line to take any chances ofdiscresditingit
with preparations that mcj;iit not prove satisfactory.
We make absolutely certain tlc.it cae h preparation is
satisfactory before we endorse it wilh the NA-DRU-CO
Trade Mark.
Atk your physician or your druggist lelenut the
firm behind NA-DRU-CO preparations and about the
NA-DRU-CO line. They can tell you, for we will
furnish them, on request, a full lilt of the ingredient,
in any NA-DRU-CO article.
"Money Back"
If by any chance ynu should not be entireW
satisfied with any NA-DRU-CO ait-'-le you try, return
the unused portion to the -druggist from whom vou
bought it and he will refund your money—willingly,
too, becuuse we return to bim every cent be gives
bmck to you.
If your drtiggi'it should not have the particular
NA-DRU-CO article you ask for in stock he can get
it for you within two days from our nearest wholesale
