"A good profile and a graceful car
riage of the whole body, especially
the head, is quite 'necessary to the
girl who wishes to be a successful hat
model,'" says Lucy Cotter, a beauti
ful hat model.
"The" thin girl must take special
care of her hair and see that it is
combed becomingly, as straggly hair
about a thin face is particularly un
becoming. "Don't be afraid to hold your head
up, even if you are thin, showing the
lone line of the throat from chin to
chest. This carriage of the head
makes impossible a double chin,
which can be achieved by a thin girl
as well as a fat one."
If your throat is yellowed or rough,
rub It ever other night with witch
hazel, into each ounce of which you
put a half teaspoonful of peroxide of
hydrogen. On alternate nights rub in
a good cold cream.
After your daily bath spray your
throat with cold water or rub it with
a piece of ice and then powder lightly.
Many girls who take great care of
their complexions neglect their
throats, which become yellow and
wrinkled before their time.
"A pretty hat has been ruined by a
bad carriage of the head, an ill-cared-
Lfor and badly-dressed throat, or a
pair of tight shoes, vis the sage say
ing of Miss Cotter, and whether you
intend to wear hats for commercial
purposes or just for your own pleas
ure it is well to remember this.
THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
MOLLIE'S NEW BOSS
(Copyright, 1914 by the Newspaper Enterprise Association.)
I had a little note from Mollie this
morning written on a typewriter. The
child writes beautifully, every punc
tuation mark was in place, the mar
gins and paragraph were perfect and
fiie whole letter was in perfect form.
I would not have known how to do
all these things even if I were able
to manipulate a typewriter.
Of course, I don't know how long
Mollie took to write this letter, but I
don't think she would take any espe
cial pains to write to me.
If the contents of the note were
not so private I would like to show it
to Dick. He has always rather laugh
ed at Mollie's pretentions to business
and said her wanting to work was
only a fad. I think I'll show him,
"I've got a new job, Margie," she
writes. "Got it on my merit as a
stenog. this time.
"He (my boss) is the worst old
curmudgeon you ever saw. When I
went into the office he never looked
a, ne, but said: 'Young woman, can
you take dictation quickly and tran
scribe it correctly, making a good

ter if a good one is dictated to me.'
"He raised his eyebrows and
frowned at this evidently Iican't be
pert with him.
" 'Sit down at that typewriter,' he
said, 'and let's what you can do.'
"I tell you he can do 'some' dictat
ing. He made me take dictation both
on the machine and stenographical
ly. I was frightened to death, but I
managed to make a good looking
" 'You will have to take charge of
my personal accounts and bank
book,' he said, ater scrutinizing what
I had written. 'Also I must find my
desk in order on my arrival. I don't
want a person to ask needless ques
tions. I want someone to relieve me
of detail. After you have been here
a while I shall expect you to go
through my mail and answer a num
ber of letters that I may never see.
