, profusely for daytime wear.
The sallow -white-haired woman
and unfortunately many women from
bad habits in eating grow sallow as
they grow older is perfectly justi
fied in using a little make-up pro
vided she does it withjiiscretion.
A tint of rouge on the cheeks, and
for this the grease rouge is better
than the powder, a little on the chin
and the lobe of the ears. Put this
on with a bit of cotton and rub it in
carefully with your fingers.
Now powder your face well and
when finished brush off with a baby's
hair brush. Use an eyebrow brush
for your eyebrows and if they are
thin and light in color you can use
a little mascara.
A tiny bit of the red grease paint
on your lips will throw your teeth
into prominence so you can use it or
not as your teeth will bear calling at
tention to them.
A white-haired woman with a
young face can wear almost any
color, but she looks particularly well
in blue or green. Black ornaments
or feathers in white hair are striking
and if your face is absolutely unlined
you can wear a bit of black court
plaster as a beauty patch.
THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
MOLLY IS HUNGRY FOR BOTH FOOD AND SYMPATHY
(Copyright, 1914, by the Newspaper Enterprise Association.)
That Mollie girl is a perfect enig
ma to me. She is a great deal clever
er than I am and that is probably why
I can't tell just what she is going to
There is so much in her pretty lit
tle head that she doesn't tell even to
me in whom she says she makes the
repository of all her secrets.
After dinner last night she came in
for a few minutes to tell Dick that his
father wanted to see him. After Dick
left us she stretched herself out on
the sofa with a tired little sigh.
"I've got the 'jimmies' right tough,
Madge," she said.
"Anything new, dear?' I asked
"No, nothing new, but some de
cidedly interesting things are going
to happen very shortly to either me
or my boss."
"Why, Mollie, you don't mean "
"I don't mean anything except that
he is an ugly old hog. Some men,
Margie, seem to think they can dis
guise themselves as gentlemen by
putting on a silk hat and a Prince
Altiert coat (my boss always wears
them) but they are only plain hogs
just the same. I don't believe I am

I would like some consideration. This
man comes into his private office
looking like the benign superintend
ent of the Y. M. C. A. and as soon
as he gets in he strips off that long
coat, lights a big cigar, seats him
self with his big feet on my desk and
begins to dictate with the cigar still
in his mouth.
"Half of the time I have to guess
at his words for I am in front of him
and he speaks through teeth closed
on that cigar. He doesn't like me to
ask questions, and he is so perfectly
oblivious to the fact that I am not a
mechanical machine. For instance,
he will sit around all the morning and
read the papers, take three hours for
lunch and at hah! past four in the
afternoon come in and dictate until
a quarter of six and tell me that I can
sign the letters as he wants them all
sent out that night. And there I sit
and pound the typewriter until half
past eight or nine o'clock.
"Mollie," I asked with a sudden
con viction, "have you hd your din

the office right here."
