TO RETAIN YOUTHFULNESS.
Nothing so destroys the youthful
contour of the face as taking tho cares
of life too seriously.
If a woman wants' to retain her
youthful appearance she must mingle
with other people, read good books

complish the most good, are those

happiness t others as well as them
selves. Housewives of the Martha type who
"are troubled about many things" In
