MPyj handling lead (painters are frequent

should avoid all possible ways of get-

Alcohol may not bo a direct cause

'thing that requires careful thought
! If there Is one thing more than any
thing else that produces fajlan arches
'and aching feet, it ll improperly

Fashion a State of Mind
The wearing of extremely high
heels Is all a matter of fashion, and
fashion Is oflen a state of minU. The
j sensible girl is one who studies com

'the slightest reason why comfort

To be entirely heellens Is also a
'mistake, for It throws the weight of
'the body too much on the Hpine and
produces a gait that is very ungrace

her boudoir gown "mules" with a
'heel that is not abnormally high, and

'the body without any undue strain.
Sandals with heels are al?n racom

the lnetep perfect freedom and the
toes have a chance to exercise.
For 6port wear, apart from bring
comfortably clad, be sure that the
feet are appropriately shod. High

questionably the correct wear for
such occasions. For mountain
