^ """"***' 9 —————i — i I ————— -- A. - - Liquid Coloring Matter Newest Lip Beautifier To Be Introduced New and Attractive Beauty Set a Welcome Addition To Guest Room Bath. By MARGARET WARNER. ITS one thing to buy new rouges, powders, lipsticks and special creams, but do you know how to use them properly after you have them? That is often the great stumbling block to completely satisfactory results with cosmetics. The trouble is not with the contents of the jars, but what you do with them. All instructions must be read and followed carefully, and that is not ■iways as easy as it sounds, especially1 when they print them in such tiny type on the bottom of the jars and you are in a hurry. It takes a little study, like everything else that is really worth while. Even a salon facial does not let you in on all the secrets, as your eyes are closed most of the time during such a treatment. When we heard that some one was actually teaching women how to give themselves facials, with each step carefully explained, it sounded like a grand idea and so we tried it. The experience proved so successful that we should like to pass the word along. You ran take a friend or two and all have a lesson at the same time. Everybody puts a generous dab of cleansing cream on cotton saturated with skin lotion and starts to cleanse the face, working from the base of the neck up—but the trick is to actually experience the whole- process yourself, learning just where to pat for stimula tion on the neck, throat and up the cheeks and how to produce a freshly groomed, yet natural, appearance. It even gives you a lift, making you feel wonderfully refreshed, knowing that you look so much better after your •'do-it-yourself" facial than you did before. * * * * rJ,HAT beauty and health go hand in hand and that beauty is more ' than skin deep we have all heard many times before. This very week an out standing diet adviser is lecturing here in town on health and beauty through proper food selection, and he does not hesitate to recognize the importance of aiding nature to create and main tain a beautiful skin by supplement ing proper die* with skin treatments. Further evidence is offered in news received this morning from the new school for fashion models in New York, that their second class has been presented to the press for inspection after six weeks of intensive condi tioning and training. Wonders have been accomplished with these girls through diet, exercise and special skin treatments, and three case histories were noted in detail. Stimulating the underlying skin tissues is a very important step in beauty building. The action is to tone and purify the skin by sending the blood to the surface until you feel It tingle. A special preparation My Neighbor Soys: flowering hedges like those made by using spireas, deutzias and lilacs should be cut back at once when the flowering season has passed. Rather severe cutting is necessary if such hedges are to be kept in good condition. Next year's flowers are made from buds, which will be started this season, and unless the trimming is done early these buds will be cut off. If you have a gas or electric refrigerator, try using fruit juices for ice cubes instead of water. They are very pretty in fruit beverages. Lemon cubes are love ly in iced tea.

It is not a mask because it does not form a stiff coating, and is essentially different from a cleansing or tissue cream. It has been per fected by a Viennese woman chemist and delver into beauty problems. This product gives the skin a fresh and glowing appearance, and continued use is said to keep it in the pink of perfection. * * * * wonders never cease!

'J'HAT almond oil may not be a new beauty trick, but it is one of the best and safest. A new star on Holly wood's horizon prefers it pure and aged for two years in a wooden barrel or keg. And this part of the routine is new and news. She keeps it in an atomizer in the icebox, believe it or not, and sprays her throat, arms and face with it after each cleansing. Used ice cold the oil serves as a stimulating and invigorating treatment, and after the spraying a gentle patting over the skin with the oil gives the complexion a velvety finish. Well, here's a new way to use your atomizer. White chiffon for brunettes is rec ommended for those who wish to stress extreme youth. Of course, simplicity is part of the bargain, for nothing is more effective than simplicity in the association with youth. But black, glittering black, in an evening dress, with accents of fur and jewels, w'ill add some 15 years to your appearance—and if you can stand it, that’s fine. In addition to adding years, it will add a very W'orldly look— glamour with sophistication. One Hollywood designer who dislikes veils predicts, however, that the dra matic value of the mantilla will insure it positive popularity in high style circles., Look for it with seductive evening gowns and smart, upswept hair-do's. Pink has invaded Hollywood, too. Pink tulle, frothy with ruffles, plays an important part in one picture.

Massed Color Effects. For those who like massed color effect all summer, there is nothing more beautiful than dwarf ageratum and the miniature marigold, Tagetes Signata Pumila.

By ANGELO PATRI. JJID you ever stop to think how much trouble we parents and teachers make for ourselves by scold ing perfectly good children for the wrong-doing of others? On the way home from school in the afternoon two boys begin throw ing stones. A stone goes through the window of a nearby house. The angry owner telephones the school principal and asks him, if he cannot manage to teach the children that go to his school to respect property. Or Is he lust training a group of young hoodlums for the destruction of the town gen erally? Next morning in assembly, after the singing of the hymn, the princi pal rises solemnly and announces. "Yesterday afternoon two boys of this school disgraced its good name-” and for 15 minutes lectures the whole assembly on the wickedness of de struction of property. The 572 law abiding young citizens have to sit there and listen, knowing that this lecture is going to cost them the musical program, or the play, that was scheduled. They resent the whole thing bitterly. They are bored stiff and stupid, and it takes the teachtrs an hour to get them into a frame cf mind where work is possible. At home the same thing happens. One of the children does something annoying or mischievous. Father or mother, maybe both, talk about the evil deed throughout the meal ana keep grumbling about it for the rest of the evening. The fact that the other children had nothing to do with it does not seem to mean anything to them. The children are miserable and resentful. Why talk to them when it was Henry who did it? General scoldings are an imposition on all who have to endure them. It is right that the wicked be brought to Justice, but why drag along the in nocent as well? Why deprive them of the joy of an hour in assembly or class or at the table? It does them no good, and the guilty ones use their companions as moral umbrellas. Their individual guilt has been diluted by the deluge that drowned the whole group. They can take lightly what all must share. Keep bad deeds private. Call the culprits into conference; say all you have to say in their ears. Punish them if need be. To emphasize the right side of the wrong idea speak in praise of the good deeds done by the other. They have broken no windows, stolen no apples, stoned no cats. Tell them that you are very pleased by their good behavior. You have heard that there are some who do wrong, but you are delighted to know that they are doing well. Praise good deeds publicly, but keep the screen of pri vacy between the wrong-doers and the public. The great body of children and youth are well behaved. The number who misbehave are few in comparison. Public opinion among the school chil dren invariably supports the right. If, however, the wrong action is spread over the whole group. If their ears are stunned by loud scoldings for which there is no excuse, public opin ion Is, to say the least, not strongly on the side of the authority who has let his wrath run away with his reason. Mr. Patrl has prepared a leaflet entitled "Changing Habits,” in which he tells parents how to overcome a child's unpleasant habits.

What spe cific qualities do men find attractive In women? How do men want women to treat them? What is the best, method of catching and holding one of these illusive ani mals? These are the things that women ■want to know more than anything else In the world, but heretofore they have had no way of finding out. The real attitude of men toward women has been a deep dark secret that they have hidden in the innermost recesses of their souls, and so women have been reduced to making guesses at what men like about them that were mostly the wrong answers and playing hunches that failed to win out. Now, however, the mystery has been solved. At long last a man has broken all the taboos of his tribe and written a book which he calls “The Way to His Heart,” in which he tells just what things about women make a hit with men and what leaves them cold. The book reveals how to go about wangling dates from boys and how to camou flage the path to the altar so artfully that the bridegroom won’t know he is on his way until he is there. It Is an entertaining and amusing little volume that will doubtless be come a sort of debutantes’ Bible, for it tells them the things about men that it takes most women until they are 35 to find out, when the informa tion comes too late to do them any good. Such as, for Instance, that even the most timid and mousy of men, who are so afraid of women they are ready to run if one shakes a skirt at them, want to be thought gay Lo tharios and perfect devils among the fair sex that none can resist, and that nothing attracts a man to a woman so much as for her to be easily amused and enjoy things. a a a a A“?-. he warns women against the suicidal folly of ever letting men find out that they know more than men do. or play a better game of bridge or golf, or draw down a better salary in business. Even in conversa i tion they must "assist" instead of j leading it, and make the man feel that ; he thought of the thought first and that they are merely following along I in his wake, picking up the pearls of wisdom that he scattered. Likewise, he advises women to watch their steps and study a man’s moods in dealing with him, so that they may know how to always strike the right note with him and not snuggle up to him for a little petting when he has had a bad dinner, or been to a dull party, or lost too much money at cards, and all that he wants to do is to knock somebody's block off Instead of kiss. Now these revelations of the work ings of a man's mind and affections as they appertain to femmes are high ly interesting. But the trouble with them is that a woman would have to be a mind reader, a prophetess and a self-abnegating saint to put them into practice. Few girls, alas, possess these gifts or have any occult power by which they can tell whether when a man invites them to an expensive night club they should go along and drink champagne or say. "Oh. no; I let's go to the movies instead and have ! a soft drink afterward at the drug store.” They don't even know whether the yearning look they see in a man's eyes means love or that he has missed ; his lunch. So how? * * * * , ''J'HIS isn’t dumbness on women’s 1 part. It is just that nobody knows what a man thinks about women, or what he wants in women, or what he admires in women, because he doesn’t know himself.

She became the one and only woman in the world he desired, and he married her. Hence it doesn’t much matter about what men thin* they think about women, because in the end the women attend to that matter themselves. They form men's tastes and opinion* in women and make them like it. Every girl who falls in love with a man sells him the Idea that he not only discovered her, but that she Is the one for whom he has been search ing for years and years; that he pre fers blonds to brunettes or vice versa, according to whether she is fair or dark; he likes them gay and snappv or prim and demure, a* she Is one or the other. So, after all, what, a man thinks of a woman is what she wants him to think. She puts the good thought on him. **• * w m J)EAR DOROTHY DIX — My hus band, after twenty-five years of marriage, has derided that he wants a divorce, as he has at last met the one and only woman for whom he has been looking, more or less, ever since we were married. This is the second time he has discovered her. He wants me to get the divorce, as he says it would save my face. He sits home and pouts. Won’t talk. Won't eat. Doesn't care what happens. Threatens suicide. Acts worse than any spoiled child. The gloom is so thick you would think we were in a morgue. My life' Is made miserable and I only hesitate about the divorce because we have an 11-year-old child. 1 want to hold the home together for her. because I kncrtv my husband will soon tire of this new charmer as he has of all the others. I have tried everything I know of to cheer him up. but just when he is getting back to normal he receives a leter from his Lady Lave asking what of mv plan? and we start ail over. Shalfl write her that I intend to stay married, or pack my trunk, as I have been re quested, and leave? UNDECIDED. Answer: If you have any affection left for your philandering husband and think he is worth keeping in spite of ■ his defects, I strongly advise you to stay put and to write the woman that, you haven’t the slightest intention of ever getting a divorce and that your husband can’t get one from you, so she had just as well turn her affections toward some more promising prospect. Evidently your husband Is Just one of the spoiled-child type of men. After he gets through pouting and sulking he will cheer up and thank you for saving him from all the mess of a divorce and the expense of having 11 support two families.

POST: Neither rr flanre nor I have a church of on: ow-n, and yet we would like to ha- ’ our wedding in church and no* at some magistrate’s office. When a bride-to-be finds herself In this sit uation, what 1s there left for her to do? Answer—It is not necessary to have joined a Protestant church In order to ask a minister to marry you. You of course go to see the clergyman of whichever church you like best: that Is, the church to which you perhaps occasionally go and might some day want to join. ik * * * £)EAR MRS. POST: When the bride and bridegroom wait at the back of church after the ceremony to receive the good wishes of the congregation as they pass out of the church are they supposed to receive alone, or may the attendants stand with them, and the mothers? In our case we are hav ing only the immediate families at a reception so that guests will have no chance of meeting the bridegroom's mother and his sister, who is the at tendant, both of whom are strangers In town. Answer—The same people who would receive if there were to be a reception can always stand at the back of the church with the brlda and bridegroom and speak to the con gregation, but there would not be any regular receiving line under such cir cumstances. Maybe I can explain this better by saying that the bride and bridegroom would be standing nearer to the line of the departing congre gation. The others would stand a little distance away, and not together In a line, so that people could see them and have a few words with those whom they know especially well but n6t file by a reception line In a queue. In your case if your mother, with the bridegroom's mother and sis ter, would stand a little apart in a group of three, this would encourage the more Intimate friends to come up and shake hands with her and give her an opportunity of introducing them to the bridegroom's mother and sister. People who know the families slightly simply shake hands with the bride and bridegroom and pass on out of the church. Stuart’s Face ft Hand Lotion Highly uteful at a powder bate. Ret. 3-oi.
