AN OI*D Roman poet begins
his first book by the con
fession that It was his
Cynthia's eyes that first
took him captive, untouched as
h« . then was by love. Here la only *
typical illustration of th» power of a
\u25a0woman's eye: should Eh© not then <!•
vote some thought and care to iU
beauty and Its health?
Yet her first thought must be a nega
tive one: Never, never tamper too much
with the eyes; they are the most deli
cate organs of the body. Do not put
patent •"drops" In them when they acba
cr are tired; do not neglect to wear
glasses when you need them; do not go
for treatment to an optician, but to
an oculist. Never read when lying
down, or in a dim light, or unless the
light comes from over your left shoul
der. All this is an old story to most of
"us; but some of us seem to ne.ed its
telling still, judging from what I have
seen «'omea do to those precious eyes
of th»;:s.
There are, of course, simple washes
winch will not hurt the eyes. Weak
black tea is one; rosewater and plan
tain is another, for inflammation; elder
berry water for itching. Dotted veils
are i' curse to the woman whose eyes
are weak; but it st-ems impossible to
convince women or\ this score. Rubbing
the eyes is another bad practice; re
number the old advice— ""Never rub the
eve* with anything: but the elbow.*
Thi<= of course, does not include the
very' beneficial circular massage for
crowsfeet. ,
Eyelashes which are too thin can be
thickened by painting them with vase-
Uno, using a small camel's-halr brush.
Clipping is a dangerous method; about
half the time the clipped hair never
comes back. Coloring the eyelashes is
also highly dangerous; it Is .only too
easy for the harmful eye to get into the
eve itself.
~Thi«! is not so true of the eye
brows; and, indeed, women with very
faint eyebrows should learn how to
pencil "them, judiciously, of course.
id that they give no appearance of
artificiality. Eyebrow pencils come
In shades to match any hair, and if
you are careful In your choice of
color tha pencil marks will be indis
tinguishable. If for some reason you
object to the pencil, a solution of
Chinese ink and rosewater will color

CONCERNING HEALTH AND BEAUTY
THE EYE BEAUTIFUL
your brows very dark without harm
to them or the skin around them.-
The too thin eyebrow should have
vaseline rubbed upon it also; the too
thick should be treated with a pair
of tweezers, carefully pulling- out -the
superfluous hairs. Use an eyebrow
brush to shape the brows, brushing
them vigorously whenever you wash
your face; and as a final touch smooth
the brows down with a finger dipped
in perfume. Never -use a depilatory
on the eyebrows; the skin around
them is too delicate. If the brows are
really unpleasantly thick, get your
doctor to recommend to you a relia
ble place where you can have some of
tricity. Be sure to have a reliable
operator do the work.

which is especially suitable for your
kind of hair:

a day in the. direction in which they
should grow will prevent them from

you to have the superfluous -hairs re

as they like at night. My parents do not
approve of. late hours. They say Ho clock
is late enough for any one on Saturday ana
half-past = 9 on- Sunday. I do not go out
during ' the week and therefore want , to
stay out late the two nights mentioned.
Do' you think it proper for me to go to a

If "there" were" any v good reason: why

they are justified in refusing to allow
you to remain out-until any hour of the
night just because your boy friends do

Stagj Life
Dear Mrs. Adams. ' " '
\u25a0 !\u25a0 am 19 years old and . have Just fin
ished school. My mother and father are
both dead, but they left me quite a good
deal of money, which makes me-lnde
\u25a0 pendent. -It has been: my - ambition all
my life; to -become an- actress. * I 'have
been told that, I am pretty and-havea
beautiful-v oice; also that I have a great
.deal of talent. 'Is an actress* life a hard
one? I have bcea? told that it Is at first: :
butlf I;go on the stag* I. shall expeef'a
. great many 'hardships. ' and - I -know I
\: shall love- the llfe.\,v ' ; ' HONORA L.'
The life of "an "actress ..is ..very-ha rd.
- One has \ to'v have an "j iron V const if ution
a letter— and then throw it into ths
fire'" Good advice, surely. In other
word 3, allow your anger to cool oft
berfore you send a letter to a friend.
Just as soon as you po3t a letter it
becomes the, property of the person
to whom it is addressed. If you mail
a note of which you repent five min
utes-later, you are powerless to re
call it.
Think before you write. Do not put In
tangible form any statement that you
might regret. A letter stands as a
positive proof against you. The black
and white evidence is more powerful
than the spoken word. It is necessary,
then, that you consider tha feelings
of others when you write to your
friends. Reserve all witty remarks that
need the tone of voice to convey your
meaning for the personal meeting.
Keep all unkind statements to yourself.
Do not make It necessary that you
request that the recipient burn the
note.- The suggestion itself Implies your
intention to say something that you ar»
afraid to support.
Scandal. Idle gossip, "they say." and
all other items of cruel interest should
not be written to your friends. I think
you know my contempt for these In any
form.
Write so that you are your true se'.f-
Tell your friends the news just as you
would talk. The moat entertaining let
ters are the ones that sound like tha
writers.
If Iwer« you I would not even keep
a great number of letters that no
longer mean anything to you. They
might mean something to a casual
reader, and their misinterpretation
might cause trouble. As soon as you
answer a letter of a friend, it is best
to destroy the fi-rst. As for love let
ters, that is a different matter.
