."wealth", will say that his gigantic largely, to the motto his wife
ability as a money getter was due, gave him : "Don't talk too much."
, BILLIE BURKE SAYS LOOK ONLY FOR THE BEST -
First Word: Train your eyes
jto see only the best.
I wonder if you realize that
jyour eyes are being trained all the
while to pick out certain things
which form the every day pic
tures of life about you. Two peo
ple will go along the same road
and see totally different things.
jOne will pick out the best and the
bther the worst.
One of the greatest illustra
tions of this eye training is the
,way in which we first dislike a
fashion and then after seeing it
fcm our friends come to like' it and
at last reluctantly put it aside for
something new. You can remem
ber how you laughed the first
time you tried on one of the hats
jthat came down over your head.
You would probably laugh just
as heartily today if you should
find one of your old head covers
and perch it up on your crown.
iYour eyes have become accus
tomed to the hat which covers the
Jiead and you like it.
i It is said that .people with
starred and marked faces become
so accustomed to them that they
liave no idea of how the sight of
jbhem affects others, and it is very
probable that we become accus
tomed to our small imperfections
fef physique that we forget about
Once in a while when I am
shopping I take a little tf me and
gtudy the faces of the women
about me, for you know it is much
easier to see a fault in others than
in yourself, and after you have
found it in the other woman you
can look over your own face and
see if you have it or not.
One of the things which girls
and women neglect more than al
most anything else is their eye
brows, and yet, nothing will mar
a face more than ugly eyebrows.
Eyebrows to be fine, -should
curve slightly over the eyes and
have plenty of space between
them over the nose. The hair
should be of uniform length and
dark in color. Every woman in
the land can have nice eyebrows
ii she wants them, but only about
6ne woman in ten does have them,
consequently she must look at
them with unseeing eyes many
times a day.
The ugliest eyebrows are those"
which meet over the nose, as they
make one look very hard. This
can easily be obviated by pulling
out the hairs with tweezers and
dabbing the place with ammonia
and peroxide of hydrogen. If
this smarts use a little cold cream
afterward. While you are about
it, pull out all the scraggly hair
and shape your eyebrows to a
pretty crescent, beginning wide
near the nose and trailing off to a
point near the temples.
In the larger cities there are
men who do nothing else than
shape the eyebrows of society
women and actresses. They do it
with a razor and carefully shave
