ly skilled artisans, who do the work
under their direction, and the sculp
tors superintend all the fluishlng
touches and even occasionally do some
of tile cutting on the face and hands.
The actual cutting of the stone Is il
most dilllcult process and requires
great expert skill. In ease a full sized
model Is made the sculptor sends It to
a professional innrlde cutter, who
roughly shapes the block. The general
shape Is often given to the block be
fore it leaves the marble yard to save
the extra freight. Tlie rough carving
Is then done by the marble cutter, who
so shapes the block as to give It the
general outline of the flgure to be re
produced. lie drills a series of holes
la the block, the depth of each of which
corresponds to an external point of
the statue supposed to hV Inclosed in
the stone. After a sufficient number
of these holes have been made in the
stone be removes the entire perforated
portion, and what remains gives the
broad lines of the statue.

The Iteml of More.
When the wise and witty Sir Thom
as More was beheaded bis bead was
stuck on a pole on London bridge,
where it was exposed for fourteen
days, much to the grief of liis daugh
ter, Margaret Hoper, who resolved to
secure it. “One day,” says Aubrey, “as
she was passing under the bridge, look
ing at her father's head, she exclaim
ed: 'That head has lain many a time
in my lap. Would to (5od it would fall
into my lap as 1 pass under!’ She had
her wish, and it did fall into her lap."
Probably she bad bribed one of Ihe
keepers of the bridge to throw it over
Just as the boat approached, and the
exclamation was Intended to avert the
suspicion of the boatmen. At all i
events, she got possession of It and
preserved It with great care in a lenden
casket until her death, and it Is now
