Miss Bums' beautiful arms are
often used in advertising pictures. To
obtain and keep symmetrical arms of
fine colpring one must begin with
one's diet and end with exercise. Do
not eafrfet producing foods if your
arms are the right size, for stout
arms are uglier than thin ones.
After your warm bath, which must
be taken daily, spray your arms with
cold water and rub dry with a coarse
Turkish towel, giving the back 'of

After this, rub your arms (round
and round) from shoulder to wrist
with cold cream. Wipe off gently

THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
MOLLIE LEAVES HER JOB
(Copyright, 1914 by .the Newspaper Enterprise Association.)
Mollie came over last night and as
Dick had to go over to see Mr. Selwin
after dinner, we had a chance for a
She told me the most amazing1 tale
one that I can hardly believe; one
that I am sure must be unique in the
experiences of girls who are working
"Margie," she said, "I am going to
leave my job a week from tonight
I've gotten canned."
"Oh, I'm so sorry, Mollie."
"Don't you worry about me. I
knew I could not work for that man
long the moment he brought his wife
down and told her that outrageous
lie. I have learned from the girls in
the outer office that his little game Is
to make love to all his secretaries
and that the girl he had before me
slapped his face."
"Oh, Mollie, how horrible! I would
not stay there even this week."
"Yes, I will, Margie. I'm going to
show that very plausible gentleman
that I am not afraid of him and that
I'm going to do my work just as I
started out to do and leave at the end
Df the week like a real lady should.
"But, Margie, if this flirtation and
fuss has to follow a girl Into every
more money than most of us get.
You know I get only ten dollars a
week. Now suppose I did not have
Dad and the rest of you to look after
me. The mere fact that the lunches
and Tdinners to which "I was invited
would eke out my little store of
money might have some influence.
I would probably say Just eatine
lunch with a man Is no sin and go.
"Margie, I am no saint and, be
sides, I don't like the idea of staying
in a niche all by myself, but that man
down there with his gray hair and
face ruddy with good living and his
oily smile which seems so utterly
unbelieving in the decency of woman
"What do you suppose was his lat
"Yesterday he said: 'You have got
a lot to learn, little girl, a lot that I
am afraid someone will teach you in
a more brutal way than I would.'
(Think of the utter nerve of him.)
You think you are going to be able
to go on with your work and come
in daily contact with men of all sorts
and conditions and still keep your
upright independence and your clear
eyed look upon life as a happy-go-lucky
place where all the men are
fflce I think we ought to have a lot ' good and all the-women sweet.
