ternals for the furthering of her
beauty and she knows just the kind
For instance: If you have the wide
apart eyes and the voluptuous mouth
of Miss Allen you-must add to your
simple muslin frock U line of paste
jewels about your neck and sleeves
and add a sparkling headdress that
will give the finishing touch that
shows temperament and understand
ing. Miss Allen is a spletadid example
of what a girl can do to bring out her
beauty features. By the way, she
has accentuated her oriental beauty
and although her gown is simple and
girlish the little bands of glittering
stones about the neck and sleeves
complete the effect.
If you are a girl with the warm
beauty of Miss Allen you can wear
brilliant colors and dress most indi
vidually. You will not be outshown
by your clothes. And to be out
shown by one's clothes is the most
fatal thing that can come to a girl
who wishes to be called beautiful.
THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE-
MODESTY AND MY WIFE
(Copyright, 1914, by the Newspaper Enterprise Association.)
Dick, says we are now in the "old
folks" class. We have been invited
to a bridge party.
"Father is feeling pretty well," said
Dick when I told him of the invita
tion, 'let's go. I like to play bridge
at the club."
"I am afraid I don't play well
enough, Dick dear."
"Nonsense! You have card sense
and common sense and the only time
I played bridge with you, Margie, I
remember I thought you played an
uncommonly good game."
"But that was before we were mar
ried," I said slyly.
Dick looked up quickly. "Look
here, Margie, don't go getting it into
your head that I have left off appre
ciating your good points just because
I am so busy earning bread and but
ter since marriage that I don't have
time to tell you of it continuously."
-"You found time before marriage,
Dick," I foolishly affirmed.
"Of course I did, old girl, of course
I did. I have never been able to see
why a woman can't understand that
when a man wants to marry a certain
woman he makes it his business to
get her. For a time he may neglect
every other thing in life but her. You
see, dear, for the moment she is the
business of his life. It's just like get
ting a big bill of books through.
"Oh, I know that doesn't sound ro
mantic," he said as he saw my face
lengthen, "but it's horse sense and it
means just as much as though I
said it this way: 'Dearest, I could do
nothing think of nothing until I
knew you were going to be my sweet
I laughed. Dick mimicked a love
lorn chap so deliciously.
"But after marriage the bill of
goods is sold you've won," Dick
continued, "and a man naturally goes
back to his real work."
"Then I'm only a side line," I said
Dick caught me to him. "Why will
you be so fussy, Margie, and you're
so pretty while you say these things
that I want to shake you and kiss
you at the same moment."
"Suppose you try the last first," I
said, putting up my face to him. He
gave me a regular bear hug and then .
said: "Shall we go to the party?" A
"Yes," I answered, "but you see it
is those awfully -rich Andrews that
have asked us and I haven't got any
evening dress that is fit to wear."
"Why don't you wear that gold
spangly thing that I liked so well
when we first married?"
"Dick," I questioned solemnly, "do
you realize how long we have been
