"The movemento of the head are very
Important. It Is important to know
whether one's head falla Immediately

1 ' When you see a woman absolutely
relaxed, and there are very few who
really do relax and know how to go about
It properly, you find a novelty among
womankind. You notice her first because
fche Is different, and then you. begin to
notice points of beauty about her.
"There is a wnole-soled . something;
about her appearance, a lack of pose, an
absence of trying to ape the imposs'ble,
which Is restful because it Is natural, and
It Is beautiful. In a beautiful statue you
never see restless motion; It Is most
disquieting to any tne who appreciates
the natural to find n woman who Is al
ways putting her different charms on
parade; her best points forward, as It
"Of course it Is the Junoesque, ma
jestic type of woman who looks most
beautiful in repose. It is she who must
make her outline of form count, for It la
Impossible for her to be graceful and
qu'ck without being grotesque. To the
large woman bvlongs the wonderful heri
tage of deliberate action, and she must
make the beat of it.
"Beauty of repose is Kained through
adapting oneself to one's circumstances.
After the mind has triumphed over the
body In this reppe;t one can begin to
how repose in smaller things also. Be
on the watch constantly for pointers. One
can learn more by watching and Imitat

end arms can be made to show this re
pose almost Immediately.
"The lifting of an ir.n n han.l can be
made Into a poem it on desire, and the
ery best way possible to study grace
and poetry of motion is to practise the
arm movements of aesthetic danc'.ng. Af
terward one may learn how the entire
body may be made to move in harmony,
each part attuned to another until all Is
a thing of exquisite grsre and beauty.
"Aesthetic dancing is beautiful because
it fosters Just this grace of movement in
women. It teaches tnem to be graceful
first, and gradually they learn without
extra application how to be ltus iwk-

A I1S.00O PEARL.
The pearl-making oyster has now been
Included among the slaves of man, and
It la the Japanese who have put tho yoke
upon him. Pr. Mlklmoto Is the great
"pearl farmer" of Japan, and he has one
oyster plantation of some fifty square
mllea In extent on which, or, more strictly
peaking. In which, since it Is covered
deep with water, women are employed to
capture hn bivalves after they have corrr
plctod their pearls.

This Is the process pursued by Ir. Mlkl
moto. The oysters are taken out of water
after they huve attained a certain aixe
and the Irritating euhstnnce is Introduced.
From three to five years are then re
quired for the growth of pearls of satis
factory aixe and quality.
Nn-enlled pearls are found sometimes In
ordinary oysters, hut they aro not lus
tmus, and huve no value. The real pearl
owes Its beauty to th Iridescent bril
liance of Its stirfnre.' which Is due to the
microscopic strlatlons with which It Is
covered. These spilt tip the light rays
Into their primary color waves, tike the
"diffraction grstlng" of the astronomer.
Thousands of miniature rainbows play In
a shimmer of delicate spectra over th
corusriittng surfsce of the gem.
The richest native beds of marln'e pearl
oyster are found In the waters around
t'eylnn, and In those of the Oulf of Cali
fornia, although the animals are widely
distributed through the warm climates of
j the globe.
A species of fresh water mussels also
produces fine pearls. These, too. are
widely distributed, and In tha United
Htatci are especially abundant In the Mis
sissippi valley. Many are found In Ar
kansas, Tennessee, Kentucky,' Iowa, Wis
consin and other states.
A few years agn there was exhibited In
New Tork a necklace valued at llso.OOU,
consisting of Arkansas pearls, forty-three
In number, the largest not exceeding
thirty grains In weight, but overy Indi
vidual pearl perfect In form nnd brll-
I llance, without a perceptible flaw, all ex
j qulsttely matched In color and graduated
in slso, the entire string being juei lanre
enough to go easily around a woman's
neck. It; took more- than ten year to
select the pearls, of which this necklace
consisted. 1 , .
'.Flngls pearls often command great
prices, but a perfectly matched pair Is
worth four or five times' the price of
either of the two taken singly. While
