In the Philippines the Windows of the houses of the better class, the villas in the euburbs and the country maneions are made of oyster-shells - those wonderful, transparent, pearl-like shells of the Oriental seas which admit light, but not the glare of the sun, illuminating the interior with the soft radiance of a cathedral. A great window filled with these sprays of pearl shows the color of ten. thousand rainbowe.
