FOR GIRLS ONLY! HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR
EYES IN SUMMER TIME
isn't it better to practice a little com
mon sense and keep One's complexion
passable and one's eyes intact? I do
not think there is anything about the
human body that suffers more com
plete neglect than the eyes and there
is no organ from which we ask more.
The eyes should be washed as re
ligiously as the teeth and you cannot
wash your eyes by rubbing them with
a soapy cloth any more than you can
cleanse your teeth by washing your
hps and face.
Get an eye cup. Put it on the shelf
with your tooth brush and every
morning when you take your bath
wash out your eyes with a 20 per
cent solution of boracic acid.
This can be made by putting a level
teaspoonful of boracic acid in a half
pint of hot water and letting it stand
until the acid crystals are dissolved.
After this is cooled pour a tablespoon
of the liquid into the eye cup, apply
it to your shout eye, throw your head
back and open your eye so that the
water reaches the ball.
Turn this water out and fill again
for the other eye. You will be sur
prised how this will strengthen and
brighten your eyes. If you are trou
bled with inflamed lids this will cure
them, unless it is some very serious
By Madame Millefleurs.
"Blast my eyes," used to be the
expletive of the "old salt" in all the
stories of the sea.
The modern woman does not say
"blast my eyes," but she. helps to the
blinding of her eyesight every day
of her life.
The woman who motors should al
ways wear a veil and for long rides
a pair of motor eyeglasses should be
added. .Yes, I know a veil is more or
less hot and ofttimes a nuisance, but
THE GAME BY BERTON BRALEY
When the game seems lost and you want to quit and you're sticking
just by your nerve and grit and you can't see an earthly chance to win
and you're weary and jaded and near "all in," don't ever quit as you want
to do, but keep your heart till the game is through, till the last hard minute
is passed and gone fight on!
The chaps who win are the boys with pluck who never will quit till the
gong is struck, and many and many a game they play is won at the END
of a LOSING day won by sticking the struggle out, won by going the
whole long route, while they though weary in brain and brawn fight on!
So, though you're staggering, weak and blind, battered in body and
dazed in mind, you can't be sure that the other side in spite of its front
of strength and pride may not be tired and jaded, too, and fully as near
"all in" as you! You brace and rally their triumph's gone fight on!
