Spontaneous Expressions of Approval Always Have
True Ring and Confer a Benefit on
Those Who Deserve Them.
WHEN a person does something that deserves praise—let him
have it!
Why not bestow praise as freely as blame?
There’s little, if any, danger of over-praise or of making a person
conceited to his own self-detriment.
If praise were loosely and generally dis
tributed that might be true, but, as it stands, there’s
altogether too little praise in circulation nowadays.
The person who is praised knows >vell enough
whether or not it is justified and earned. If It is
not, you have flattered, and that does not harm.
Only a superficial mind derives pleasure from
flattery, while a sensible mind notes your insin
cerity and is wounded.
If the praise is justified and earned, it is re
ceived and recognized merely as a truth—and no
truth ever did anyone any harm!
DR. LOUIS £. BISCH When praised deservedly we take on a new
. lease of life. It makes us feel buoyant, happy,
hopeful. It brightens our eyes, tones up the system, makes our gait
wore elastic.
The sun never shines so brightly as after praise.
Give praise as an antidote for the blues! Observe how quickly
it dispels the clouds!
If we were as eager and willing to praise as we are to censure
and blame, our reactions would even up better and the world would
be a happier place to live in!
Deserved praise should never be withheld!
If an employee does a find piece of work, praise himl
If anyone performs a commendable act, praise him!
. If a wife performs her duties exceptionally well, don’t take it for
granted, but praise her!
And praise your children, too, when they deserve it.
Let them know you are interested and that you can be pleased!
Encourage and stimulate with praise wherever and whenever you
Often people have an idea that there’s a mischievous and perni
cious quality to praise. As if praise — the truth! — would be the
undoing of both the praiser and the praised!
But praise must be hearty, spontaneous applause!
It must be commendation without exaggerations!
It must be free from prejudice and design!
Praise must come from the heart to go to the heart!
Haven’t we trials and tribulations aplenty?
Don’t wo suffer enough?
Praise may not often be deserved, but when it is, why not be
generous and lend a helping hand?
Many a man has been tided over by a little praise.
Many a woman has taken a new lease of life because somebody
was wise enough to give a few words of praising cheer.
Children often are encouraged to do better at school, to try to
please their parents and otherwise improve because of well-directed
and judiciously-given praise.
Stinginess is bad wherever you meet it.
But stinginess in giving praise is the most pernicious variety of all.

Smart Tweed Suit of Exquisite
IN a season whose suit-coats run
largely to seven-eighth and
three-quarter lengths, this trim
little suit in tweed is a delightful
irregularity. As another distinction,
its knitted wool blouse is worn inside
the skirt, revealing through the deep
opening in the coat-front, a trim
buckle at a natural waistline.,
A tweed design is carried dUt on
the blouse, completing the ensemble.
Early English Furniture Styles
--- ■ ■—i
THEKE’S a charm about old furniture that
gives a contentment and cheer wherever it
may be found. Some of the early Eng
lish styles possess a quaintness and stateliness
that are a perpetual joy to the possessor.
Pictured above is an oval oak table, support
ed on three balustrade shaped legs. When the
leaves are down, the top of the table is triangu
lar shaped. This conies down from the early
seventeenth century.
The corner chair, also of oak, with a mat
seat, comes from the same period, and is a de
lightful complement to the table.
The Queen Anne chair, covered with tap
estry, edged with fringe, with its cabriole legs
and hoofed feet, dates back to about 1710.
All of these pieces are delightful, especially
if they are authentic, but one sees many copies
at prices within the reach of most pocketbooks,
that the craving for antiques, at least, as to style,
may be gratified.
Advice to Girls B> annie lairie
Dear annie laurie:
1 am a girl In my teens and
am In love with a boy ten years
my senior. I am sure be cares for
me but a girl friend of mine is
always telling me that he cares
for her. If he has told me that he
loves me and has also asked me
some very serious questions, do
you think he really cares for her
I and that I am too young for him?
Should I ask hlrn If he cares for
this girl and if he does, give him
up or what shall I Uo?
BROWN EYES: Don't you think
my dear, that you are really tor
young to be thinking of love? I do,
and I would suggest that you con
tinue your friendship with this
young man. disregarding utterly the
silly statements of your friend. Cer
tainly. it would be ridiculous of you
to indulge In any heroics, such a?
•'asking him if he loves her. and
giving him up." Try and think ol
him In the light of a friend alone,
and wait until you are older before
you think of love.
Dear annie laurie:
I have been going with a
young man for several years. His
friends tell me he doesn’t care for
me and that I am foolish to con
tinue going with him. When I ask
him about this he laughs and says
It Isn't true. Please tell whether
I should stop going with him. I
care a lot for him. PEGGY.
PEGGY: How Billy of you. my dear,
to listen to this foolish gossip.
Your friend shows you in every way
that he enjoys your company, docs
he not? He continues to take you
out, does he not? He laughs at the
silly stories you are taking sc
seriously, does he not? Then why
worry? You may be sure that were
he not fond of you. you would not
continue to hear from him. One word
of caution, however. If you are not
engaged to him. accept Invitations
from other men. Do not neglect all
your other friends for this one man.
Ail luck to you, Peggy dear.

you will be about right.

we have made this promise. Is It
all right to make this promise if
both are sure of true love?
»* first place, my dear, you are

your place, I would put this promise
1 to your friend In the back corner of
I my brain, and I would not think of
it again until I had graduated from
college. If, at the end of that time,
you decide that you are still In love
with each other, you can then re
member your old promise. In the
meantime, continue to have a good
time with your other friends. I
think that both you and he will
agree with me that this is the wisest
course to take.

wise. For you are too young to be
thinking of love, as is. Indeed, your
friend. So this la my advice, my

man entirely out of your head. If
he enjoys your friendship, he content
with that. Do not lw* Jealous of his

I couldn’t. I would like to win the
first boy back.
Would you advise me to write
him and acknowledge my mistake?
WONDERING: My dear, since you
are not engaged to the first
young man. there Is no reason why
you should not go out with as many
others as you wish. 1. therefore,
cannot see what grounds vou have
for apology. However. If you wish,
you might Invite your friend to your
home some evening when you are
expecting guests, or you might ask
him to make a fourth hand at
bridge. And. then, you can show
him by your cordiality, that you
would like him to call again. I am
sure that, with a little tact, you can
easily clear up all misunderstanding.

Guatemalan Indians Worship Black Christ.
IN the tiny village of Esqulpulas
In Guatemala there is a beauti
ful cathedral. This cathedral,
quite aside from its beauty and the
fact that It Is a part of a community
that consists of but a dozen build
ings. Is famous for its Image of the
Black Christ. And pilgrims travel
from all over the country to the
church with Us dome of golden yel
low tiles and Us four stately towers
of white, to worship at his shrine.
Just why the sculptor chose black
hardwood for the medium of the
Christ is not known. One of the
theories is that the Indians would
have more faith in him if he were
nearer their own color. Be that
as It may. since 1594 A. D.. when
Quirio Catann finished the statue of
the Black Christ, the people have
flocked to the village year after year
to worship.
From January 1 to January
15 Gautemala holds Us festival.
And the pilgrims come from all parts
with their household goods strapped
upon their backs. For they believe
that after having been blessed by
the presence of the Black Christ,
their gcods will be holy, and living
surrounded by holy objects, they, in
turn, will be doubly blessed.
Even the little children are not
exempt from the burdens. They,

derive the benefits of the Black

And so, every year, thousands of

Undernourishment Common Among All Classes of
Society and Individual Cases Must Be
Watched and Treated.
United States Senator from New York.
Former Commissioner of Health, Hew York City.
IT Is a sad commentary on our care of children that at least one
third of them are underweight and undernourished. No matter
where we go, whether to Fifth Avenue in New York or to the slums
of the cities, we find the same percentage of undeveloped children.
I can edure the sufferings of grown people with
a lair degree ol calmness. But when 1 witness the r
discomfort and lack of normal growth of little
children I am deeply stirred.
The serious part of this kind of undernourish
ment is that its effects run on into adult life. Un
fitness in grown-ups is frequently the result of
malnutrition in infancy.
There are two chief causes for undernourish
ment. The first one relates to bad food habits.
The other is the presence of some uncorrected
physical defect.
Too many children have some obstruction in the
breathing apparatus. In consequence, in infancy
there is marked interference with nursing. Catarrh
al conditions, adenoids or other definite cause for
obstruction are among the factors having to do with
lessened air supply. OR COPELAND
There cannot be proper assimilation of food or development of
body unless there is an unfailing supply of pure air. That is one reason
why ventilation is so important. The room occupied bv a baby must
be freshened constantly by an abundance of fresh air. It is even more
Important for a growing youngster*
to have air than It is Tor grown-up
Unless matters like this are given
attention, it won’t be long befoje
there are symptoms pointing con
clusively to serious undernourish
ment. The child becomes irritable.
The slightest effort tires. There is
no endurance whatever.
Other signs are dark rings around
the eyes. Instead of that wonderful
complexion we admire In a sweet
baby there may be waxy pallor of
the skin. The mouth is open and
the breathing is difficult and noisy.
The glands may be enlarged.
You should weigh the Infant reg
ularly. No household Is quite com
plete in its equipment unless scales
are provided. Without regular weigh
ing there can be no accurate knowl
edge of what progress is being made.
There must be steady increase in
weight or there Is something wrong.
If there is serious undernourish
ment and no growth whatever, the
condition demands action. A blood
