A WOMAN'S BEAUTY. "She has
a typical Grecian nose and othei fea
tures so regular as to make a most
beautiful face," says a critic of one
of the well-known actresses who has
now Joined the movies.
That's the way to describe beauty
in a cow, a railroad station, an auto
mobile, or anything else in which
there's no possibility of a soul show
ing forth, but to people of intelli
gence and judgment there must be
something more than type and reg
ularity to make the human face truly
Every girl, every middle-aged,
every old woman can be beautiful.
Right thoughts, bright thoughts,
happy thoughts make a beauty more
impressive and lasting than can reg
ularity of feature and all the arti
ficial aids in the market . The Gre
cian nose wrinkles at 35 and the
other "artistic" features are gone7 at
40. The happy disposition written 'rt
woman's face by generous and bright
thoughts is a beauty that cheats
Very often a plain-faced woman is
most beautiful. It is not the shape
of the face, but what's in the face,
that makes true beauty. That actress
ay be most beautiful, facially, but
he'll be.a failure in the movies unless
he puts sentiments into her posines
'or. the camera.
t Every woman is before a camera
the eyes of the public. She can be
beautiful if "her face reflects bright
thoughts, happy thoughts. The pub
lic, especially the masculine part of it,
growing more practical every day, is
appreciating, more and more, beauty
of the soul rather than the regular
ities, the surface effects. ByGeorge!
we are at this very moment in love
with a woman who is 84 years old
and a great-grandmother. Since we
can remember, her face has been
telling of happy thoughts, hope and
goodness and it has a beauty that is
glorious, a beauty that time has
worked at and trouble has worked
at, but it won't come off, even when
they fold her hands over her quiet
heart and fasten down the lid over
her dead face.
MAYBE THEY JUST EXIST.
A short time ago the statisticians an
nounced that the average pay of min
isters in Massachusetts is $600 per
year. It is now announced that their
average savings are $369.
' "We've had many descriptions of
the living of working girls on $6 per
week. We'd like to hear how the
Massachusetts minister lives on less
than $20 per month.
