The Seven Points of Beauty
The really beautiful woman
must possess the following
seven points of beauty:
A Good Complexion, a Perfect
Figure, A Well Shaped Mouth,
A NICE HEAD OF HAIR
Gcod Teeth, Pretty Eyebrows
Very few can lay claim to
all of these seven attributes of
beauty. Some slip into the
beauty class by possessing four
or five and very many ladies
succeed in being exceedingly
attractive with only two or
three points to their credit.
The one attribute which pre
vents any woman from being
plain may be possessed by all
and that is a nice head of hair.
Geraldine M. Forbes, writing In a recent tesue of a woman's magazine and touching
upon the hair in its relation to feminine good looks says: "And what a difference it
makes in their appearance! One cannot look ugly if the hair grows thick and has a
satin sheen. The fashion of the moment demands glossy hair and hair that Hps close to
the bead in clinging tendrils."

Coal Famine Hits. Plant of the

coal being direct cause for suspension
of work. President W. C. Bennett
said that work will not be resumed
till Monday, and not even then unless
relief comes In the shane of a con
siderable shipment of coal. We have
a little coal on hand, but not sufficient
to make it warm enough to keep the
workingmen comfortable. Therefore
we thought it best to shut down till
Monday, hope being that there will be
a letup In the cold spell by that time.
As to whether there is any likelihood
of our receiving more coal well, you
will have to ask the railroads about
that," said President Bennett.
Though the coal supply at some of
the other plants is running low, there
is no :word of it being necessary for
any of them to shut down. At the
Deere plant it was stated there 13 an
ample supply of coal and no danger
whatever that it will be necessary to
suspend work even temporarily.

MONMOUTH EDITOR IN
A TRIBUTE TO THE HEN
Monmouth Review: The Maple
City is this week entertaining one
of the greatest progressives in the
world, her majesty, the nen. mis
may sound strong, but it is never
theless true. What would mankind
do if denied her kind and consider
ate nature? Half the breakfast
tables in the world would be robbed
of their chief substance and luxury
and a great part of every meal would
lack an essential element. If she
would cease to be. or cease to show
er upon us her benevolence, there
would be no more of that estnetic
and substantial Item of the menu
deHisrnated as eggs, fried, boiled or
shirred. There would be no ome
lets, no pound cakes, no eggnogs,
Tom and Jerrys would be flat and un
profitable. There would be no "yel
low legs" to induce ministers to do
more strenuous work in the vine
If it were not for the hen there
would not be verv much good to eat
on the face of the earth. There
would be nothing to settle our cof
fee, nothlne to keen the cold stor
age house in operation, and nothing
to invite the average citizen to
arise in the morning and partake of
his morning repast. As a result the
work of the civilized world would be
paralyzed; the farmer's wife would
be robbed of her ability to buy the
little things for the house; farming
would not pay and the sick would
die for lack of chicken broth. Tho
development of civilization would be
set back at least 1,000 years and
men would be put to digging more
vigorously than ever along the
shores of the sea for crustaceans of
various kinds in order" to exist.
There would be a dearth of substance
in the world to sustain life, and not
much joy in living.
All glory then to the hen that is
with us this week In all her pride.
All hail to man's greatest benefac
tor. We bow to her for the good
she has done, the good she is doing,
and the good she will do in the future.
