Miss Neil Bertrand, a model for high
class advertising artists.
"If you wish to look saucy, or
piquant, you must be sure that your
eyebrows do -.not meet across your
nose. If by any"possibility this is the
case with you, it is not necessary to
go to the electrolysis expert, just pull
them out with the tweezers and then
rub your forehead with a solution of
one-third ammonia and two-thirds
peroxide of hydrogen.
If this smarts, you can put on a lit-

cess as often as the hair comes in,
and after awhile you will find that
the roots have been killed.
Be sure and brush your eyebrows
carefully and a little beauty patch
at one corner of the eye is always

beauty is described as "piquant."
This type of girl should be very
sparing in her use of powder, be

THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
I THINK MARY HAS FOUND HER PLACE
(Copyright, 1914, by the Newspaper Enterprise Association.)
I stepped into the book shop this
morning and there I found Mary as
busy as a bee and looking happier
than she had for a long while.
She told me that Jack was much
better. "Yesterday his mother came
over to see him," she said, "and Mar
gie, she nearly drove him crazy.
"When I got home he was in a high
fever and he said, 'Mary, I never was
so glad to see anyone in my life. I
didn't know how terrible it was to be
sick and have some one who made
you nervous about you. Although,
as you know, the doctor prescribed
ice and cold applications, mother in
sisted that I should have hot appli
cations. She said, "You will catch
cold with all that ice on you."
" Til bet we argued an hour over
the matter before I was able to per
suade her that the doctor knew best.
Then she told me that she thought it
was perfectly ridiculous for you to
leave me and go to the shop. I told
her that someone had to take care
of the place, now that Dad and I
were both sick. She said, 'Margie is
always so anxious to do everything.
Why don't you let her do it?' "
"Jack looked up at me with a smlie
of real affection, almost the first he
-had given me in weeks, and said,
'Dear, perhaps I've been rather
thoughtless lately, but truly I'm go
ing to do better in the future.' "
"I answered: 'Well, I hope you will
be better physically.' 'You're a brave
little woman,' he said, 'and I tell
you, when a man's sick, he wants his
own wife if he's got one. No other
woman fills the bill at that time.' "
" 'Do they at any other time,
Jack?' " I asked. And I smiled, for I
did not want him to think that I had
seen that letter.
" 'I don't think they do, Mary,' " he
answered rather soberly, " 'but men
are perverse creatures, you know,
and when they get a little liquor in
them they are apt to say and do
perverse things. I believe, Mary, dear,
that if I follow the doctor's advice in
the future and do not drink anything
I may possibly become one of those
model husbands you read about.' "
"And will you believe it, Margie,
we have had better business at the
book shop than ever before, and I
like the work so much. I wish Jack
would let me do it when he gets well.
He could do something else or even
dismiss one of the clerks and I could
help him. Don't you think that would
be a good plan, Margie?"
"I certainly do, Mary," I said, "and
I am sure that Dick will think so, too,
