1- Things to Interest Our Woman Readers

Of Good Looks
" Just ss trifles make perfection,
Jtbough perfection is no trlMe, as Mich-
jriclangelo said, so do tho Httlo things

The eyebrows, the eyelashes, the
Hps, the teeth, the ears, tho linger
nails, aro all very little things in some
women's eye. But, nevertheless, each
contributes a share toward making a
And. If a woman will give the atten
tion to these little things that she
should, she will do much toward mak
ing herself beautiful, even though her
features may not be .all that she -wishes.
The eyebrows havo been described
by a poet as "Triumphal arches set
o'er conquering eyes, beneath." This is
a very pretty sentiment, but some eye
brows, as nature made them, are any
thing but triumphal arches.
Fortunately, today, however, if Na
ture has not dono all sho might In tho
way of one's eyebrows, science will
come to our aid and remedy all de
fects. Science has a rar better method
than had one woman whose eyebrows
were not to her liking. This woman's
eyebrows grow together over her nose
and were very thick and bushy. She
got 'a pair of tweezers and deliber
ately pulled out as much of her ye
brows as Bhe did not want. "It hurt,"
she confided to me. "And it left red
marks; but I finally got the kind of
eyebrows I desired." Her eyebrows are
fine' and. beautifully curved but 1
would not recommend this method.
There is a method by which eye
brows that are too thick or bushy or
too close together can be Improved.
The electric needle today, in tho
hands of a skilled operator, can per
manently remove theae offending
ki;. hairs, only be.very sure of your oper
i ntor. ,
In unskilled hands the eleptric
needle can do harm, just as the sur-

tiihands of amateurs,' so is the electric

It tie eyebrows are too thin, vase
line applied Just to the right spot, will
help thicken them, but the practice
must be persisted in. A rub now and
then, or a week's trial, Is not apt to
show satisfactory results. A little box
of vaseline should bo kept on the toilet
table, and' the. eyebrows treated as
reeularlv as the face is cleansed. If
the eyebrows are neither too thick nor
too thin, but juBt right, they will bo

brushed gently each day with a small,
soft brush, they will show the effect of
this grooming. They Will be softer,
finer and keep their arch better and if
there is any defect in their line, brush
them to as to cover this defect, and In
time they will take the direction de

tion, this protruding can be remedied,
but, of course, this must not bo done
except upon skilled advice.
If, moles or warts or brown spots
develop, and they often do, thes.e can
easily bo removed, and they should be.
Science today has made the removal
of these things a very simple matter,
and often face or throat, that should
otherwise be very pretty, Is spoiled by
somo such blemish.
The condition of tho lips has much
to do with the attractiveness of the
mouth. They should bo red, smooth,
fresh as a rose.
Their color depends upon the health.
If tho circulation Is poorhey aro apt
to be bluish; if a person Is anaemic
they are pale. They are a. very good
Indicator of tho condition of the
health, and if their color is not what
it should be, one should go right to
work to remedy tho condition that Is
causing their unhealthy hue. s
Then, too, If the Hps are rough and
chapped, oven though their dolor is
normal, they aro most unattractive.
High winds or an exceedingly dry
air will chap tho lips. Some women
continually wet their lips with tho
tongue while out in the air, and this

Fever blisters, or cold Bores, as
some calls them, are very disfiguring.
They may come from suddenly chill
ing th blood when heated, or they
may result from digestive troubles.
Tho best cure, of course, Is to find
the trouble and remove it. Sometimes
If they are rubbed vigorously when
the first symptoms of tffelr coming are
felt, they will disappear; the following
remedy, too, is helpful:
Carbolic acid 6 drops
Glycerin 1 teaspoonful
Rosewater 10 drops
Then, of a woman finds that her Hps
have settled into unpleasant lines, and
sometimes, they do, a few Hp gymnas-
tics are helpful. These should not be
done to such an extent as to make
nneB or wrmijies on the face, but if
tne Hps are moveed about and pursed
up until any fixed habits of expression
that they may have formed are broken
up,' it will add to theiK. charm.
At this day little need be said about
the beauty of sound, white teeth. Noth-
ing is so repellant as teeth that show
the need of the brush, such teeth wlU
spoil tho prettiest face, and teeth that
need attention soon tell their need by
their breath. No woman who has any
regard whatever for her looks can at-
ford to heglect her teeth or have an
offensive breath. .

The Crime of the Fond
If you were told that a mother fictu-
ally rouges the complexion of her lit
tle boy, "and then sits and looks at
him nnd exclaims, VOh, you pretty
thing" you would thing It wasn't true,
wouldn't you, or else that the mother
was mentally Incompetent?
Undoubtedly the mother is mentally
Incompetent, though the world gene
rally doesn't adjudge her so. But the
Incident is quite true. She not only

things equally foolish. She is the'
wife of a successful business man, and

on her suffering little son, for ho
would be a manly little fellow, it he
had a chance, sho is playing bridge
or wandering around in the shopg,
It is. easy to see what sort of man
the little fellow will grow into, unless
ho has a very energetic guardian an
gel somewhere. And such a mother
would be apt to wear out the most
frenulum nf oiiardlnn nnerols. For an-
geis are at, a disadvantage on this
earthly sphere, and that mother is .

this, he can't do that. If he gets into

There Is no end to the alluring pos
sibilities of the fashionable beadwork
used on dress accessories. The mak
ing of very pretty hatpins, for in
stance, Is not at all difficult. Tho
beads are sewn on to a very fine can
vas, which must be carefully chosen
In a size which will not allow of any
bead passing through to the back.
When finished the canvas is stretched
over a wooden button mold. Another
way of doing the mounting Is to
stretch the beaded canvas over a circle
of thick cardboard Into which the head
of an ordinary ha'tpln is Inserted.
When the head is firmly attached to
the pin, the back must be made neat
with a piece of silk matching the chief
color in the beads.
A bead buckle gives opportunity for
fascinating color effects. Stretch your
beaded canvas over It the same as for
a hatpin and finish in the same way.
Another pretty way of utilizing
beadwork Is on neckwear. Black vel
vet ribbon two Inches wldo makes a
very pretty cravat, with a flat bow at
the top and two straight tabs falling
down from tho center. A forgetme
not effect ln flowers is worked out in
turquoise blue beads with little green
leaves and a stem of aluminium
thread. Tho bow and ends of the tabs
a,re the decorated parts, ot course.
Another Idea would be to have tho
flowers In crystal, the leaves In steel
and the little Btcms In dull gold.
There Is almost no end to the vari
ety of ways in which pretty beads may
be made the means of decoration. In
addition to the above mentioned ways
ot using them, they may he also usea
on slippers, buttons, belts, dog col
lars, theaters capB and hair bands,
hearts, dress and hat bands, bolero
jackets and waUts, peplums, tunics
and various cither ways which, ylll
suggest themselves to tho woman who
likes to work with beads,
In ornaments on hats tho latest cry
Is for amber, crystal and pearl. The
last named have been used moro ln

but it la expected that pearls will

They are a natural decoration for
