"Health. Couraze. Manhood—Any One of These Three Is Worth a Dozen Fortunes"
The Call's Magazine and Fiction Pages Beautifying Arms and Hands ANNA HELD (Heading "Anna lipid's All-Star Variete Jubi lee.'* Under Management of Inttu Cart.) Copyright. 1913. Internationa! News Service. in France we consider a beautiful, expressive arm and hand one of woman's great charms. Do you not think this beauty is well worth your cultivation? Hands are so much in evilence it is Important for every woman to try to make hers attractive. Of course, the foundation for all true beauty is cleanliness. Grooming and care will make the skin of your arms and hands smooth and clear. Shapeliness is also within your reach. And if you will but cultivate grace and expressiveness, you may master beauty of the hands and arms. In France we admire gesture and expression through a certain amount of free motion. To you repose is es sential for the hands. But the grace of repose is a thing that requires study. Alions! We proceed. Bathe the arms in bran water— using the bags of "son" as I told you In my talk about the bath. Lave the arms in warm, but not ex tremely hot water, lest an undue amount of blood be called to the hands, giving them an unsightly red appearance. Now beginning at the shoulder rub down very gently with a good cold cream. If the elbow is unsightly with cal lous skin or goose flesh, make up your mind that you must break your self of your American habit of lean ing on the elbow. Leaning on the elbow looks quite attractive when a pretty slender girl assumes the pose. But lt is most un sightly when a stout woman takes It, and in any case it will give you ugly j coarse pads at the elbows. Break : yourself of the habit, and in the mean- i time rub the elbows each night with > lsnoline. ALWAYS RI B DOWH Always rub down in cultivating beauty of either arm or hand. By fol lowing the downward sweep of the circulation you will acquire the j greatest possible shapeliness and get the tapering line of hand and arm ! that is essential to their true beauty, j Swing very light dumbbells or In dian clubs to acquire flexible, grace fa] motion of the hand or arm. Lift I the arms first to the 6ides then straight up in front of you. then to the shoulder level. In each position j flex the wrist, and turn the hand on j the wrist as a pivot. Try expressing j your idea of various emotions with the hands and arms. Study arranging the fingers gracefully and yet not I loosely from the wrist to acquire the power to relax them easily. And now to crown your efforts, have your hands always well groomed and clean. If you can not afford a weekly man icure, purchase manicure tools—an orange wood stick or two, a flexible j file, some chamois buffers, a bottle of j peroxide, castile soap and good cold j cream. To this add a pair of loose chamois gloves, some finger tip squeezers, glycerin and some well recommended article that will give luster to the nails. After filing, soak your hands in warm soap suds to which you have added a few drops of benzoin. When they are soft and clean, push the cuti cle back with a towel and cleanse under the nails with the-prange wood stick dipped in peroxide. Not only must the nails be free from dust and soil and spots of all sorts, but the flesh under them must shine clear white through the trans lucent nails. Now rub a bit of luster cream or powder on the nails and polish with the buffer. Each night rub glycerin, with a hit of camphor, or of carbolic acid and rose water (you will be the best judge of which mixture best agrees with your skin), on hands and about the cuticle of the nails. Then don the loose gloves and let the softening effect of your glycerin preparation go on. in the ■Minora In the morning shape the fingers by applying the squeezers to the fingers In alternation. Massage the fingers toward the tips, and be sure to keep the joints supple and smooth. When on the street always wear gloves that are large enough for you. When ln a building remove the gloves at once, so that no perspiration stiffen the glove or chap the hand. Never use highly scented soaps. Never wear tight wristbands or cuffs, and be sure that your dresses always have plenty of room ln the arm holes. If you follow these careful direc tions, madame, I think you will find yourself possessed of a pair of supple, graceful white hands and arms. And, either in motion or in repose, they will add to the tout ensemble of true beauty. t A HOUSEKEEPING PUZZLE * "I don't think this ham is perfectly cured, my dear," said Mr. Newlywed. "Well, wiist shall I do, Tom?" asked the sweet young wile, anxiously; "send it back to the shop or teieyhon* for tbe doctor?" . Hands are so much in evidence it is important for every woman to try to make hers attractive. Leaning on the elbow looks. quite attractive when a pretty, slender girl assumes the pose. But it is most unsightly when a stout woman takes it, and in any case, it will give you ugly, coarse pads at the elbow. Break yourself of the habit, and in the meantime rub the elbows each night with lanoline. Never use highly scented soaps. Never wear tight wristbands or cuffs, and be sure that your dresses always have plenty of room in the armholes.

The Man Who Fears Disinheritance BEATRICE FAIRFAX DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: I am 19 years of age, and in love with a girl of 18. I atn ln business with my father, who is wealthy. I love this girl, but my father said he would disinherit me if I marry her. I have $900 of my own, and I want to go somewhere and start a business for my self, for I will not give up the girL She wants to go with me and help make our fortune. Shall we marry now and go together, or shall I leave her till my for tune is made? E. H., Decatur, lIL DISINHERIT —pooh—that's a word to frighten the hero in a three act melodrama. It doesn't belong in a good American vocabulary at all. Disinherit—what can he disinherit you from? Your health—your courage—your manhood—your in dependence—why, any one of these qualities is worth a dozen fortunes-. Don't give one of them up for the sake of a little money, for hearken —the money you can make and lose, and get and gain—ln no time, and be neither better nor worse, nor happier nor more miserable than you were before you had it or lest it. Your character is a different thing—that is in the mak ing now—don't let any love of money for mere moneys sake cripple your character now when lt is just in the making. There's nothing in it. Go to your father and talk to him —like a man—say to him: "Father, I love you, I respect you, I am deeply grateful for everything you are trying to do for me. I don't believe you quite understand —I want to explain. WHAT TO SAY "I love this girl and she loves me —we believe that we can be happy together—why do you want to prevent our marriage? Would you like the sort of a man who would give up the girl he loves just for the sake of money? "Do you want me to stay with you and do as you bid — not because I love you and want to be with you, but be cause I want to clutch at your money? "Ia that the sort of a son you want? "I don't believe it. • Who is It that you want me to marry? Some girl who has money, too, and who will help me 'build up the busi ness' ? "Don't you know that the kind of money that comes that way is a liability every time and not an asset? "Don't you realize that a square, honest, courageous man is worth more to any business than all tbe money he could Inherit by being a flattering coward? A LEADING QUESTION "And, father, tell me—the truth now—l'm not a boy any longer. I'm a man—a man that wants to do the square tiling by you and by myself—talk to me man fashion— tell me—who chose my mother to be your wife? "And who was there in the world that could have made you give her up after the day she said to you 'I love you'?" • Nine hundred dollars of your own, eh? Well, if worst comes to worst, that's more than lt has taken to start many a fortune. Talk it all over with your father —think it all over carefully and earnestly, and then take your sweetheart by the hand and look the world ln the face with a light heart—and let the fortune go. *r JAPAN 4r CONSTANCE CLARKE PICTURED on a silken fan, Learne .1 I first of quaint Japan— Mountain peaks against a sky, Solitary tree near by, Tiny maid kimono clad, lipped, but ever sad. Funny old Japan! Land where cherry blossoms flower, Where wistaria petals shower Purple rain—and banished sleep Wakes to gardens buried deep Under piles of sweetness, day Tells her hours like beads away In far off Japan! What is there that hints of death In your flower fragrant breath? Beauty clothes you like a mist, But your hills are sorrow kissed. Have you sacrificed your whole As the birthright of your soul, Petal strewn Japan? The Manicure Lady WILLIAM F. KIRK it*** HERE is one song that ain't I been wrote right ln this country * up to date," said the Manicure Lady. "I would like to know what that is," said the Head Barber. "I never saw anything like it, the way the song writers are grinding 'em out." "But none of them has wrote any real national anthem," said the Mani cure Lady. "That la what I was read ing in a music magazine last night. The article said that the song writer who could get up a real national an them would make a fortune in a year. "I guess the folks is all getting tired of the old fashioned national songs. like 'Yankee Doodle' and 'America' and the 'Star Spangled Banner.' They played the 'Star Spangled Banner' at a cafe where brother Wilfred and me was dining the other night, and Wilfred was the only gent ln the house that got up. Nobody knew what he was standing for, either. The waiter seen him standing and came rushing over with the check for the dinner, thinking that Wilfred was going to make a getaway, but outside of the waiter and me nobody paid any attention to him. People ain't patriotic no more. if this country was in dire danger, as the history books say, and the presi dent called for volunteers, you wouldn't see none of the young men of today volunteering unless they could be sure of a year's contract and a little advance money. That's why I kind of doubt if a new national an them would make any dough for the composer unless it was wrote in rag time." Tabloid Tales FRANCES L. GARSIDE What nas Mrs. Bore oeen taiKing about for the last hour? She is telling, my child, a joke her husband told her last night and which took him half a minute to tell. Why do the Blink family look so despondent. Their newly married daughter is home on a visit, my dear, and she is telling her mother how to cook, in structing her maiden aunt and sla ters, and advising her fatlier about his business affairs. No one, dear child, knows as much as the newly married woman. What is meant by living a Bohe mian life? Sloppy housekeeping, my child. What does that expression mean that I see on every married woman's face? Translated into English, my dear, it means. "I earn all I get.'' How many hairpins does a woman use in doing her hair?

"Why don't you get that poe: brother of yours to write a ragtim national song?" asked the Hf.. Barber. "It's funny that you spoke of that, said the Manicure Lady. "Wilfred is unusually pretty thick at getting goo<i ideas, but he has actually went and wrote a ragtime national song, and ! believe it has a good chance to be a hit He gave me a copy of it, but told me to be careful who I .showed it to until he gets it copyrighted, but you have an honest face, George, and i can trust you."
