NIGHT, rather than morning,
is the time for every woman
to worry about keeping her
beauty or developing beauty if she
hasn’t got it.
The very first thing to do is to
remove all trace of makeup from
the skin. I don’t care how late you
come in or how sleepy you are
take off your make-up if you don’t
do anvthing else! The pores should
be cleansed so that they may
breathe freely during the night if
the skin is to appear fresh and
sparkling in the morning.
We’ve had a lot to say about
cleansing creams so I’ll be as brief
as possible regarding their use. If
your skin is very dry use a
cleansing cream that it rich in oils*
so that corrective values will be
had as well as cleansing virtues:
If your skin is inclined to be oily
use a cleansing cream that has
been especially prepared for the
oily type of skins.
Two applications of cream are
required to thoroughly cleanse the
akin: first a generous amount is
massaged into the face and re
moved, then a scant amount is
massaged into the skin and re
moved. You’ll be amazed at the
amount of dirt that comes off with
that second application and it is
this second application that really
removed the dirt*from the pores,
the first serving to remove and
loosen surface impurities.
Next comes the patting on of an
astringent to help keep the skin
and tissues firm, so that sagging
and loose skin is avoided. A boric
acid bath for the eyes is splendid
if the eyes are tired, or if they
burn from dust being blown into
them. Fill an eye cup with the
boric acid solution, hold it firmly
to the eye. tilt the head backward,
then wink the eyelid back and
forth rapidly. Repeat with the
other eye.
, This much should be done by
every woman before retiring. The
more lengthy beautifying process
depends on the needs and desires
of the individual. . .also. . .a great
deal depends upon whether or not
she is too lazy or too tired to take
the full treatment.

LTHOUGH red fox has never
seemed in frightfully good
—1 taste to me—it’s sort of
blatant and showy—the fact re
mains, that designers are using a
great deal these Summer days to
trim fussy afternoon ensembles
and evening wraps. So don’t let
my prejudice keep you away from
it, if you happen to like it. As
the vaudeville team remarked in
the statement that is sure to go
down in literature—“Maybe I
shouldn't have mentioned it.”
For red fox is most certainly
popular in-Summer fur3—running
a close second t* the more beauti
ful (and more expensive) silver
fox. And every once in awhile,
it is used so tastefully on a wrap
that even I like it.
For instance, just the other day,
running in and out of the New
York shops, hot on the trail of
new styles and accessories about
which to pass on information in
this department, I saw a perfectly
delightful evening wrap whose
deep shawl collar was edged with
a band of red fox that was ex
quisitely marked and looked no
end rich against the transparent
sapphire velvet of the wrap.
It was a three-quarter length
model, slightly longer in back than

AT just about this time a flock
of college graduates, armed
with their new diplomas, are
setting out to conquer the world.
There is no reason why they
shouldn’t do just that. But a lot
of them are going to put a lot of
unnecessary obstacles in their own
way. And then wonder why they
don't get ahead any faster.
The trouble with a lot of these
youngsters is that they have spent
four years hearing that they are the
flower of the coming generation
and that on their shoulders rests
the future of this country. Of
coarse, that’s true to a certain ex
tent. But it’s not entirely true. And
when such talk leads a college
student to feel that he is superior
to the person who hasn’t be**n to
college and that his degree should
antitie him to special consideration
is the business world, it’s all wrong.
What the college graduate must
remember is that his education
has given him exactly nothing in
the knowledge of how to run a
business. It will do him a great
deal of good in the long run, if he
remembers that it is only a
foundation on which he can build
firmly and successfully. When
he takes his first job, he will find
that he is mingling with people
who have spent years in learning
their jobs. Why should he expect
to be able to make himself as
valuable to an organization as
they are in less time? It can’t be
done. The graduate, whether a
He or a She, should remember that
he is only a freshman again.
Freshmen don’t high-hat upper
classmen and expect to get away
with it. You can’t get away with
it in business either.
You’ll find that your associates
will gladly help you out if you
are sincerely anxious to learn. But

for the finger wave, something
must be done to preserve its trim
outline if the full benefit of the
money expended for this beautiful
type of wave is to be had. We
all know that turning and tossing
is hard on the wave, frequently

trouble is the clever little sleeping
caps which are inexpensive and
decorative at the same time—to
say nothing of their virtue in the
way of keeping hair in place no
matter how much twisting and
turning of the head is done.
I think the sleeping cap is pref
erable to ordinary hair nets as
the hair nets must be pinned, and
are delicate and apt to become dis

Gets 9lau House
An Intriguing Story of
Young Love and
Modern Business.
THE SUN invaded a tiny bed
room in a brownstone house
that was exactly like every
other bedroom in every other
brownstone house in any city of
these United States. With this
difference: That the two young
people occupying it on this par
ticular morning were lifted above
the common plane through the
force of their own happiness. On
their sleeping faces the amiable
sunshine revealed tranquillity and
mutual faith.
At seven-thirty a voice mur
mured, “Jerry, darling, this is the
last time I’m going to call you.
We’ll be terriDly late.” Jerry
opened his eyes and blinked. “Oh!
It’s you, Mrs. Renard. Good
morning.” And he wafted a sleepy
kiss in ner direction. The kiss was
smothered in pillows and rumpled
blankets, for Barbara had de
termined to make her newly
wedded husband get out of bed.
Followed hasty and refreshing
showers, a quick breakfast and the
usual silly things honeymooners
say to each other when there are
more important things to do. Then
they separated, Jerry to the bus
line and Barbara to take the street
car. For they had decided it was
foolish to tempt fate, and, while
none of their associates lived near
by, it was wiser to be cautions.
When Barbara closed the door
of the brownstone house behind
her she glanced warily to both
sides of the street and then sped
down the steps like a runaway
prisoner. “Funny business, this.”
she thought. “Anyone watching
me would think I had just commit
ted a theft, or some other sin.”
One in her office she felt safe
from detecting eyes, and no one
would have guessed that she had
just embarked on the most thrill
ing honeymoon ever devised by
man. Byrdon, watching her tran
scribe her notes deftly and effi
ciently would probably have ex
ploded in a fit of jealousy if he
had known the truth. For Bar
bara had made an impression on
him not to be easily removed. She
brought into his life a freshness
and a buoyancy that carried him
back to his own happy youth, and
he would not have parted with her
for a fortune.
But as he stood at the door of
his office watching her work he saw
an office boy lay a folded note on
her desk. He recognized the paper
—it was an office letterhead, and
instantly he knew it came from
Gerald Renard. He saw Barbara
open the note hastily. As she
read it she smiled and a bright red
spot appeared in each cheek.
Just then she stood up. Byrdon
hastily turned away, but his
quick confusion was not lost upon
Babs. She realized her employer
had watched her read the note,
and for a moment she was be
wildered. Did he guess that Jerry
and she were more than friends?
Would he speak to her about it?
She determined, in any case, to
deny the truth and save her job
and Jerry’s.
But she was spared the neces
sity. For Byrdon was too hurt
by the thought of Barbara’s indif
ference to him to reproach her.

plan to keep it a secret from
the world, and especially from
Mrs. Donnes. Barbara’s
widowed mother, who thinks
all men are rotters. On the
Sunday they have set aside

of her. She rneels her hus
band that evening in the
apartment he has taken, and
they spend the night there.

I’m afraid you're in for a

have the patience. Find the ant
hills if you can, and inject kero
sene into them. Then close them
tightly with cotton soaked in kero
sene. Soak some sponges in sweet
ened water. The ants will collect
on them. Then drop them in boil
ing water. This, if repeated often,
will get rid of them. Then spread
borax on your shelves. Or ir you
want to use a poison, tartar emetic
is as safe as any. I have found
that to be particularly effeciive
against the little red ants. But if
you have any pete be careful that
they can’t get at it.

are all good preventatives. If you

put the furs in that If you don’t
care to use moth balls, sprinkle
black pepper thoroughly through
the furs, and keep them in dark

through the furs and wrap them in
newspapers. If you haven't a cedar
chest, line a box with newspapers,

Dear mrs. wilson.
I wonder if you could help me
by offering suggestions as to re
papering my house. It is a bunga
low type, and the rooms are rather
small. What kind of wall paper
do you suggestT MRS. H. W. y.
If the rooms are small, avoid big
splotchy patterns, since they have
a tendency to make the room look
smaller. Stripes make a wall look
higher, and unless they are very
bold, they do not tire one as much
as some of these criss-cross pat
terns that keep you busy picking
them out with unconscious eyes.
For myself. I adore dots, and a
pretty border, for a small room.
Or plain walls with an effective
border. Then the walls are more
a background for pictures and fur
niture. Instead of trying to be con
spicuous In themselves. Yea. ruffled
curtains can be used all over a
house of that type.
We have a silk mohair over
stuffed suite in which the moths
have gotten. They made considerable
headway before we discovered them.
Have used the vacuum cleaner, and
put camphor around the crevices,
but ictfhoaf success. Will / have
to use some kind of a disinfectant
—such as used in case of contagious
diseaset MRS. J. H P.
You might try going over the
whole suite with benzine, letting it
run into the crevices where the
moths collect. Benzine is better
than gasoline because the odor
does not remain so long as does
that of gasoline.
In this column each week Mrs.
Mary D. Wilson will answer all
questions concerning the household.
