BILLIE BURKE SAYS, "DON'T BEAUTIFY IN PUBLIC"
The First Word "Talent is
perfected in solitude," Goethe
said, and so is a good complexion.
If you want to make a success
of beautifying, persist in it until
the results are satisfactory, but do
not take your whole family into
your confidence by telling them
at once what you are going to ac
complish. Small brother is likely to say,
Gee, but your, neck is scranny,
,and all that dope you rub on it
isn't any good," and little sister,
with equal candor, while enter
taining your "best friend" iwho is
awaiting the final touches to your
toilet which, alas, you may have
delayed until the last moment is
quite liable to tell him just how
you beautify.
For small sister, no matter
how young, always takes an eager
interest in each detail and usually
explains all about it at the least
bppprtune moment.
Of course, every one acknowl
edges in this enlightened day that
all things are fair in producing an
excellent complexion, but always
remember that brothers, friends
and husbands enjoy the finished
product, and not the process.
I know a man who discharged
an employe because he detected
her using a powder pad down be
hind the counter "didn't ap
prove of powder." The woman
who is "just right" in his eyes
has well to say the least an
artistically applied complexion
and he willingly would take the
thine to beautify. She is a fas
cinating widow,"and, knowing his
little weakness in this regard,
never will offend his taste by ap
plying powder to her nose in his
presence. And they will live
happy ever after.
I am not advising deceit; but
creams, etc., are not things to be
applied in public. When we by
common sense methods have im
proved our personal appearances,
and all our family and friends are
remarking, "How you have im-.
proved!" then is not the time to
brag about what you have accom
plished.
Just One Last Word We
must beautify, but let's do it in
secret.
WOULD BE
A farmer's boy
market carrying a couple or
EASY
was going1 to
chickens in either hand, when in
a quiet place on the country road
a girl met him. As they bade each
other good morning the girl burst
into tears. "Why are you cry
ing?" asked the boy. "I'm afraid
you're going to hug me," replied
she. "How in thunder can I hug
you with these chickens in my
hands !" exclaiined the dull youth.
"Can't' I hold the chickens?"
shyly replied the charming creature.
Mistress (after the quarrel)
Norah, you muskstay until I get
another girl.
Norah I intend-Jx. It's only
most sacred oath that she never roight some wan should tell her
uses powder nor does a single
the kind of a woman ye are.
