By GEOKOK I'nUl suite recently Hotel Blron u known ill the convent of Bacre Coeur -and lately It has been made Into an apart ment house n wh en Augusts itoain. ine sculptor, live. The great master hat studios at Men don and In a Paris marble yard, but be pretera his workrooms In Hotel Blron. . It Is Indeed the most beautiful place any artist might Imagine, The creator of "The Thinker" here has some lsrge very high halls with beautifully decora-ted paneled ceilings. One of the rooms In which he works Is circular In shape and through Its large French windows you look Into a, wonderful garden. For years this garden haa been abso lutely neglected, but among the tall grass you may still see the rows of low box wood hedges which once framed the walks and, beneath the foliage of the grapevines, you get a glimpse of iron framework of old-time summer houses. Every spring the beds In the lawns come back to life and are filled with flowers. Nothing Is more melancholy than to see human work thus slowly destroyed by nature. Rodin spends nearly all h'.s time draw Ing' in Hotel biron. In the quiet rooms of the old convent be studies the beauty of young women and reproduces their harmonious outlines on paper with his pencil. "Where once young virgins were brought up ty pious sisters, the . sculptor, now adores the physical charms of womea and surely there is no less piety In his ' ' - . 1 Att A I thtt sisters in' bygone days. One evening I was sitting with the mas ter looking a,t a collection or nis araw lngs and 1 admired the harmonious ara besks with which he reproduced On paper the various rhythms of the human body The bold outlines of his sketches showed the case and freedom of the movements and the master had with his thumb noft ened the features Of the model a, thus rtinhnni7.ini- their beauty, to whloh hard pencil lines could not do justice. As he showed me his drawings, he saw before his mind's eye the models he had used and 'every moment he exclaimed: "How wonderful the shoulders of that woman are! This line Is of perfectly ideal beauty 1 My drawing Is too clumsy. 1 have really tried, but here Is another drawing from the same model.' It Is a little better and still-" ' "Look at the wonderful charm of those curves; it is of almost superhuman fc-race." "And look at that! What admirably curved outlines, and 'what splendid soft' hess of the surface covering the musoles. One Is tempted to kneel down la adora tion." , The expression of his eyes showed that he was lost In old memories; he was like an oriental In Mahomet's garden. "Master," I asked him, "is it always easy for you to find beautiful models T" Tes." "Then beauty Is sot scares la our coun try?" ' "No, I tell r." ' "And does it last long?" "It quickly changes. I will not say that a woman like a landscape Is con tinually .chanting with the moving sun, but the comparison Is almost true. "The true youth, in which the body Is still developing and full of grace in every movement seems at the same time to . dread and to call for love and this phase of beauty lasts only a few months. "Without thinking, the longings and passions of love, quickly change the tis sues' of the body and destroy, the outlines. The girl becomes a woman, bar beauty Is changed; It Is' still admirable, but less pure." ....'. "Don't rou think that antloue beauty was greater than modern and tbst mod-1 How to Be One of my friends writes me that she l;an ccclded to dye her hair.

Do you think dyeing the hair is dangerous?" Men ato well as women have dyed their hair since etu-llest historic times. The mother of Rameses the Great la said to V.ave set the fashion, and It is a style ahlch. will continue until women become perfectly Satisfied with the way nature deals With them, which, believe me, will be never. There Is one thing about woman that ' snows In some respects. .' he . Is much raver than man. The tragedy of the ' first gray hair does not make her pete and weepy. She simply stains her hair I and appears before the eye of her dis cerning women friends with a heroism worthy of the Old Guard. Che dyes, but DKFREXE. ern women ' are far Inferior to those Phidias used as modelsT" "Not at all." "But the beauty of the rtreek Venus T" "The artists of that time had eyes to see with, while artists of today are blind. The Greek women were beautiful, but their chief beauty was In ths mind of the artist, who used them as models. "There are today women who are ex actly like them. The women of modern Italy possess the very same Mediter ranean type of beauty as the women of Phidias. The most prominent character of this type Is the broad shoulders and hips." "But did not the Invasions of the bar barians into Italy destroy antique beauty by Intermarriage?" "No. Even if one ' supposes what Is perhaps possible, that the barbarian races were less beautiful than the Ro mans, time- has wiped' out 'the defects by the mixture. of races and again produced the .old harmony of the original type. . , ';When the, beautiful and ugly mix, the beautiful always conquers In the end. Through & divine ' law, nature always comes back' -to the best, and always strives toward perfection. ' , "Besides the Mediterranean type there Is a northern type, to which many French women as weir as the German and Slav women belong. In this type the hips are very broad, while the shoulders sre narrower. It is this form of beauty you see, for instance, in the nymphs of Jean Uoajou, and In Venus In the painting of "The Judgment of Paris" by Watteau Or In Diana by Iloudoa. ' . ' ."To -tell the truth all human figures have their beauties. You -must only know 1 how to dlseover them. ...... ' ' "With infinite pleasure T have drawn little dsnctng girls from Cambodaha who one came to Paris with- their ruler. ' "I have made' studies from' the Japan ese actress Hanako. She had no fat at' all. Her muscles stood' out firmly like those of a fox terrier. Her tendons were so strong that the joints to which they were fastened were as big as the limbs themselves. She was so strong that she could stand on one leg as' long as I wanted her to, stretching out the other at a right angle. She seemed te be like a tree rooted to the ground. . Her anatomy was ' quite different from that of the European woman, still . she . was very beautiful." '.'. A moment later he expressed a thought that has occupied him very much: "Beauty is everywhere; It Is always be fore our eyes, but we do not: see it. Beauty . is character and expression. "In all nature nothing possesses more character than the. human body. By its strength or grace it calls forth the most different Image. Very often It resembles a flower,. the curve of the upper part of the body resembles the stem, the smile of the bosom or the head, ths brilliancy of the hair resembles an open flower. Then again the body may remind of a flexible vine, a wand with graceful, bold curves. "When I saw,' Odyesseus says to Nau stcae, ' T thought I " saw once more a palm who arises toward the sky In front of the altar of Apollo at Detvs.' Or the human body, bent backwards Is liks. a spring, like a beautiful bow on which Eros places his Invisible arrows. . .. "Then again 4t is an urn. Very often I have asked a model to sit down .on the ground turning her back towards me. In this position appears ths outline of the back tapering toward the waist and growing wider at ths hips, like a vase of wonderful shape. The human body Is first of all ths mirror of the soul,' and In this lies Its greatest beauty. "What we admire In the human body Is even more than the outside form; ft f la the Inner flame which seems to hin through It." ' - ' ' ' Beautiful does not surrender. . ' irowever,( to return to our dye pots. I( you want to Stain your hair there are's few things to' remember. First of all it Is slavery for life,-for few women ever stop once they have begun. Then not all scalps will stand strong dyes. Many people have a very send the akin and the chemicals,-in them selves often perfectly hsrmleas, of which most dyes are composed, simply don't sgres with these people, .Just ss others cannot eat sea food or strawberries with out bad effects; for Instance, or. become very ill when they take quinine. Many people oan't 'apply glycerine to their faces without showing a bad looking burn on their skin. It Is. Just so with hair dyea Unfortunately you never can tell whether you are Immune or not until you try. - Never dye your hair yourself If yea can possibly; avoid It and never get any dye but the very best.

I know Emily well. Therefore, I have' not always seen her as she was this morning. Hers is a mercurial na -ture. Her spirits are , addicted to high upa and very low downs. They soorn commonplace middle ground. Bo rt Is that I 'A . have seen Emily v H when the baro meter had reached Its lowest point I have seen her so enveloped In mental fog that I wanted to run as fast and as far from her as I could, for there Is not In all the category of ills any thing more "catching" than low spirits. Low spirits lengthen the facs and paint the world Indigo. They extract all the Joy from the heart of everything They ,make the singing of birds a dirge and the passing of busy persons In the street a vast, endless, funeral possession They breed a subtle, self-polson as deplet ing and In time as deadly as' any noxious drug sold us with warning of dark red paper ah white skull, and cross bones Not seldom have I seen Kmlly In this mood, 'when she haJ dropped to It there was no comforting her, for she resented cheery counsel ss an Intrunlon, and re ceived every suggestion that thlnge were not as bad as they might be, or at any rate ware susceptible of Improvement, as something she must fiercely combat found myself turning cowardlyv when Kmlly's face was heavy and her eyes brooding, . and much Inclined to escape hey. .

From this you will oonrlude, that Emily fs variable and not always agree able.' Well, she Is human. But let me. show you another phase of her. ' Thlv morning she had burst the shell of self, She had been busy for two weeks helping a youtwr friend buy. her trousseau and make plana for her wedding. Emily eyes were bright. Her chin was upturned and. as always, the upturned face Is more attractive than the drooping one, and, of more youthful appearance. Emily looked ten' years younger. As she smiled a cheerful selfless smile ten more years fell away. Her voice had lost Its strident strain. There were new toft notes In It. Her mood warmed the hearts of all wha met her as the rising sun warms a black! landscape. If ones mood was a frosen one. It thawed under the spell of her happiness, It one were joyous, the Joy was multi plied. One basked In her mood, revelled In it, felt that all was right In the sadly, wagging old world, after all. Reluctantly withdrawing from her presv ence I thought that It I should neve see Emily again It would be happiness tc remember her as I saw her then, at he best. But why not always remember hef thus. I may meet her again, once, twenty, a hundred times, and she may run the gamut of her varying but always lntens moods. But why not regard all ths as temporary eclipses of the real Emily whom I have but Just seen In he clear radlancbt Human beings, our brothers and sisters, deserve the Justice we grant the moon. When we speak of the moon we think ol her at her best, swinging a serene, bril liant globe across the calm- face of the heavens. We have seen her. suddenlly hiding behind clouds. We have seen an Inconsiderable fraction of her make its first curved swordlike appearance In the sky. We have seen her a shapelena red dish mass, " fading slowly into the far horizon. 1 We have seen her utterly eclipsed, have sought her with smoked glasses. In vsln. Itut when we hear her name we think of none of these fractional or unworthy aspect of licr. The name summons the vision of lier at her full splendor, the moon unfretted by transi ent circumstances, unscreened by pausing clouds, the real moon. 8o It Is with those persons who walk our way on the high road that Is llfs. It us remember them when they have passed, and try to regard them while they walk beside us, at their best. For these are tholr true selves, the most real aspects of themselves.
