An Ancient Joko of Which Thre Aro
Many Modern Versions
The following tale was translated
from a very old Chinese book for Col
liers Weekly
A certain magistrate upon opening
his court observed one of his Actors
whose face was covered with wounds
and asked him what was the matter
Replied the Hctor Yesterday evening
I was reclining and enjoying the fresh
air under my grape arbor which was
suddenly upset by a gust of wind and
fell on me and caused these Injuries
But the judge was skeptical and
said That is too thin It Is easy to
see that the marks on your face are
from scratches from nails It must be
tliat you nave had a row with your
wife and got a clawing from her Is
this not so
The Hctor crimsoned all over and re
plied Your honor has truly guessed
Then said the judge Why is your
wife so fierce as this Wait till I sum
mon her and give her a beating and
you your revenge
While he was yet speaking the judges
own wife suddenly came out from the
house and fiercely said Who is this
you are going to beat
The magistrate hastily announced to
the lictors and tiug chai tis This
court stands adjourned Disperse in
stantly It seems as though the courts
grape arbor is also about to collapse
king Up Is a Very Ancient Femi
nine Art
Making up as applied to the an
pearance is by no means as modern
an art as many people imagine
In the days of Roman supremacy
the women tinted their eyebrows with
black in emulation of ox eyed Venus
They painted their faces sprinkled
themselves with perfume and even
wore false hair or tinted their own
locks in accordance with the prevail
ing fashion
The Greek ladies of the same period
employed maids who rubbed out their
mistress wrinkles decorated her
face with red and white paint and
darkened her eyebrows It was then
also the fashion to coat the face with
white of egg and goose grease to pro
tect it from the sun and wind It is
even said that they had a recipe for
turning blue eyes to black
These fashions all had their origin
in Italy where in later years the no
torious Lucrezia Borgia is said to have
dyed her hair different colors accord
ing to her fancy of the moment
In England in the eighteenth cen
tury many women among them Lady
Coventry died from the effects of
rouge So in all ages beauty at all
costs was the motto of smart la
