"I don't object to cosmetics when they are used in moderation. Per sonally, I have never used anything but powder.

"I have no beauty rules, only," she added, "I don't keep late hours, I try to get nine hours sleep every night, I get plenty of exercise, I eat heartily, but not between meals. I work hard, and try to entertain only the highest thoughts. To all gills I would say: "Keep your thoughts clean, for clean thoughts radiate happiness in the face."
