Thoughts That Mould th.o Feu
t u res.
The mouldiag of our features by our
thoughts is a never-ceasing process
Vheler we are conscious of it or not;
whether consciously controlled or not.
If we persistently continue in one lias of
thought for a given time, the especial
feature upon which this thought has
acted have become accentuated accord
ingly. It is the thought behind every
act, behind every breath, which vital
izes and finally shaitcs the lineament of
our faces; and any attempt to frustrate
thought in its effort to express itself
through our countenances, results in a
confusion of expression .and an un
certainty which is superior' to and de
tracts from otherwise well-formed featur-es-
Nor may we impose upon ta"h other
by mere muscular imitation of a feeling
or a sympathy which is not genuine; for
our thoughts, endeavoring to conceal
themselves from our associates for some
reason born of the moment or surround
ings, mean one thing and try to make the
features express another, perhahps a
more "polite" thing in this wav, the
intangible thoughts, true at its birth but
afraid to show itself naked to the behold
er for fear of loss of emolument of praise,
it may be, or friendship or favor, at
tempts to dissemble, and at ouoe loses its
force and mars the truth or true action
of eyes, of lips, of brows.
So it follows that the first rule to be
observed by the seeker after physical per
fection ia that brief one, "Be true." As
a tree is known by its fruit, so is a mind
known by its expression upon the face
A pure tread of thought seen in the free
acting muscles of the physiognomy can
and must reflect a pure beauty. It is
simply a matter of "cause and effect".
The most beautiful face is the perfect
ly happy one; for happiness brings a shin
ing to the eyes a new curving to tlie lips,
rounding of and an uplifting to the
cheek. In all the happier and loftier
emotions the muscles leap upward, It
seem a sacrilege to analyze a smile and
make )t a mere matter of mnscular ener-!
gy, but perhaps if it is looked at in an
other way, seeing in the muscles of the
face the ready handmaids of the soul or
thought, we may at once recognize the
importance of the relations existing
between the servant muscles and the

aTter one has Ka'-hed uuJd'e lift lias h-st
much of tho freshness of youth, and
laust depend mainly on expression for
her leauty arid attractiveness, then it is
the lines of the face that tells the story
of her life. They are beautiful if her
thoughts have been exalted, unattrac
tive if they biive been unworthy.
All along the outposts of time has
this truth been cried out by the various
seutries. MarCJ.s Aurelius emphasized
it, men of brawa and brain have echoed
it, famous beauties Lave profited by it.
