If you were a preacher what advice would you give your
congregation on this subject? Would you recommend any

It is my feeling, sometimes, that all of us
preachers are apt to .forget the place of the
human body in the scheme of salvation. “The
body is the temple of the soul,” w’e are told.
Just what does this mean?
You wouldn’t think much of a farmer who let
his barn roof get leaky. The rain comes through
and rots the hay. This essential feed for the
horses gets musty or sour. It loses its value as
What would you say about a jeweler who left
a big hole in his show window? Through it he
would lose his stock of valuables.
A diseased and broken body will result in
damage to the soul residing in it By God’s
grace the dwarfed and undeveloped spirit of the
man may rise on wings of usefulness and give
DR. COPELAND service in spite of the handicap of a body’s
neglect. But who can doubt that had the temple
of the body been kept in perfect order the soil and spirit dwelling
therein would have come in richer fruition?

same. I think preachers shou’d tell their congregations that God dees

Efficient One.
IKN'EW that Marion was tocn
sound at heart to have only a
selfish reaction to the news I
had given her of her stepfather’s
sacrifice in her behalf. It was but
a few seconds before her Joy at the
prospect of having her mother to
herself for the rest of her vacation
gave way to quick contrition.
“I'm a selfish, ill-mannered cub.”
she said, "but I'm not going to be

man away from home. Please tell
him. Auntie Madge, that he dpesn't
need to go on my account. I’ll l*,

She was too honest to omit the
last word, and she was so pretty a
feminine Don Quixote tilting at her
windmill that I again had to hold
down my mirth with an iron hand.
“Tour Uncle Dicky would tell you
not to upset the milk bucket,” I told
her, snatching any excuse for a
smile. "In the first place, Mr.
Underwood Isn't sick any longer, in
the second you are not driving him
away, but he has made up his mind
to go and nothing you can say can
change his decision, and in the third
and most important place, it will be
a good thing for your mother. I’ll
tell you more about this when you
come back. For you will go for this
drive, won’t you. sweetheart?
I changed my mandatory tone to
a coaxing one. for I saw that all
danger of hysterical tears was over,
and I felt that I no longer could keep
my mask of sternness from slipping.
My heart was very tender toward
the child who always has been as
‘ dear to me as one of my own blood
could have been.
She flashed over to me and hugged
me tightly.
“Of course I’m going, you darling.
I*m not quite a pig even if I do
act like one. But—what shall I say
to—to—Mr. Underwood about his
going away.”
"Say nothing.” I told her in quick!
► alarm. “You are not supposed to
know that he has any other reason
for going than the one of necessary
business which he will give your
mother. I told you only because—"
"There was no other way to make
me behave myself,” she finished
with a rueful little smile. "All right,

“Thanks so much. How long be

“She said ten minutes."
“Oh! I shan't be that long,” she
promised and went back to her room.
I stood looking after her. a queerly
insistent little query in my mind.
Mary is rather a careless house
keeper as far as her room Is con
cerned. It was unlike her to go to
the trouble of replacing an ink
spoiled blotter when a pleasure trip
was in such imminent prospect.
Suddenly I determined to have a
look at that ink-stained blotter,
doubtless now in Mary's waste
basket. Lillian had said that we
must watch her mall and her ac
tions. If I were going to be a spy,
I told myself bitterly. I would be an
efficient one. and. with this deter
mination in mind, I went downstairs
in order that I might have an op
portunity to sp««-k to Harry Under

hearing me.

Catching the Moths By Fanny Darrell
T— ' ' •--- - -— -1
HAVE you ever watched the tiny moths attracted to the
candle flame, or the light of the lamp and seen them flutter
and fall when the rays scorched their g$uzy wings? Poor
little things! And yet, they go blindly to their fate because they
love the flaming glare of the rays and, heedless of the heat, fly
straight to their doom.
And here Dan Cupid and one of his subjects have met a like
fate, only it’* a bit different to the story of the moths. They
KNOW the dangers of the flame—the lovely flame who just waits
and waits for the moths which Love will send for her to capture.
So in one tiny hand she grabs and holds Daniel, and in the other,
she tightly clasps her Destiny—for she’s sure she’s not going to
let go of either until everything’s settled. They’re not afraid of
this flame! No indeed! They’ve been seeking it, and now—well
that’s another story, but I know it will end “and they lived happily
ever efter.’*
Don’t Envy the Other Fellow’s Portion
Eminent PtychologUt.
IT IS very rare to find a person who is satis
fied with his own lot.
Almost without exception, everybody
wants to be something or somebody else.
You hear of business men—and successful
ones too—who want to be professional men. The
latter, in turn are likely to express the desire
to go into business.
For example, physicians want to be artists.
Or when they practise internal medicine they
wish tiiey had gone in for surgery, while the sur
1;eons, also wanting to be somebody else, turn
onging eyes toward other specialties or they
rue the day that first made them ambitious to
enter medical school.
Women complain and are dissatisfied in
similar manner.
If they had only married differently! LOUIS r BISCH
If they only had more children, say some.
Others, with children, may wish they had none at all to tie them down.
And clothes! So often they envy other women’s possessions.
So again, we find the employer thinking he’d be lucky if he
were an employee. And, of course, the employee almost always
mums 11 wuuiu oe wonaenui 10 oe1
the employer.
But when we feel that way do we
ever stop to consider that probably
we wouldn't be any happier If we
were somebody else than we are
right now?
Thinking how nice it must feel
being somebody else, and actually
being that somebody else, are en
tirely different!
In our imagination everything is
rosy and bright.
In contemplating the lot of others
we stress all the advantages and
desirable attributes and seldom, if
ever, take the disagreeable features
Into account.
Yet every station and occupation
In life—every kind and condition of
mankind—has its drawbacks.
It's because we overemphasize
the drawbacks and under-emphasize
our advantages that we look upon
the procession that passes with long
ing eyes.
Be careful, therefore, not to let
life fool you that way.
Make the most of what you are.
Be satisfied sufficiently to try to
develop yourself and your oppor
tunities to the utmost.
Lead your life in such a way that
others will want to be you Instead
of you wanting to be them.
Don't waste time making longing
•yes: . _ .
Don't be regretful!
Don't sigh! t
Don't be jealous!
Wanting to be somebody else has
a lot to do with failure.
This continual longing and wish- j
lng usurps so much mental energy
that attention is diverted from the
immediate task at hand and the In
dividual in question becomes, re
latively speaking. Inefficient.
It’s like a person who Is walking
along the road gazing at everything
else except where he is going and.
because of it. stumbles Into a ditch.
Therefore, watch your own step,
don't worry about others, and make
the most of what you already have.

DAY of radical and conflicting

Romances of the World’s
Great LoversBy cozette pquglass
Victor Marie Hugo and Mme. Juliette Drouet.
ONE of the most gifted men or
all times, is Victor Hugo. I
say “is" because bis is a name
which will never die. as long as
people can read. His monument is
built of the blocks which we call
books—more precious than all the
rare marbles ever used.
Both as poet and writer of prose
fiction. Victor Hugo excels many
whose names hang high in the par

espousing the royalist cause and
At the age of twenty-one he mar

this was a happy marriage, but the
love of wife was not sufficient for
the fiery and passionate nature of

In 1S45 Hugo was created a peer
of the realm by Louis Phillippe. hut
during the reign of the Prince Louis
Napoleon, he incurred the displeasure
of His Majesty and was banished.

friends, and a false passport did

was offered for his capture dead or

\ Fashion Model’s Diary
She Tells About a Fascinating Dinner Dress.
MRS. JONES came into the"
shop the other day with a
sad. troubled look in her eye.
“I want a simple dinner dress." she
said. "Something dark and cool and
Summery—but not a printed chiffon.
I'm tired to death of them."
Which gave Madame what Is
known as pause. To find m dress
that is dark and cool and Summery
and not a print is really doing some
thing in these days of figured sheer
fabrics. But Madame never admits
defeat—not when there is the shadow
of a sale in view.
So. just to stall around until she
could think of something that might I
fit the bill, she had me model dresses
that were dark or were cool or were
Summery—but not all together. Then
suddenly, where there had been
worry behind her eyes, there was
"Grace." she ordered, "please
model that black net for Madame."
And she sighed with the content
ment that already sees the price of a
dress stowed safely away in our cash
I had forgotten that dress, but
Just the moment it was mentioned I
knew that Madame had struck the
nail a wallop right on the center of
its little head—for the black net was
dark and cool and Summery—all at
the same time.
Mrs. Jones thereupon became the
parent of that simply darling dress,
exclaiming that It was Just what she
had wanted and so forth and so and
so. It was really a lovely model—
sheer black dotted net over flesh
satin. Pointed hip swathing achieved
smartly the moulded hip line. and.
over a short satin underslip, quite
scant, the full net skirt cascaded to
lovely length in back. A clever ar
rangement of clre satin ribbon dotted
the hip-back and trailed the ground t

Your Skin Is Like
a Rare Flower
Care for It
By Josephine Huddleston
DO YOU know why protective
measures from sun and
wind are essential to the
attainment of a good complexion?
Why I con
sistently urge
you to use
good creams
and lotions in
the care of
your skin? It
is to aid you
in achieving a
good com
plexion and to
preserve the
good com -
plexion you
already have.
What we
call complex- JOSEPHINE
ttny blood vessels that show through
the skin. If the skin is thick and j
course the complexion, naturally, Is j
dull and lifeless no matter how per
fect the network of tissues, filed
with red blood, below are.
The skin must be fine and thin
if the tissues underlying it are to
show through and give the indivi
dual a clear, sparkling complexion.
It's exactly the same principle as
expecting a lovely petticoat made of
delicate and fine lace to show ;
through a satin or serge frock. That i
is a physical impossibility, but when !
one dons a sheer organdy or chiffon
frock the delicate beauty of the slip
shows through, enhancing the charm '
of the ensemble.
When the skin becomes coarsened
and thick there is very little that
can be done to repair the damage, j
Creams and lotions can be used that
will refine the leathery texture to
some extent, but never can the clear, j
translucent beauty of sweet sixteen
be restored.
That is why it is essentia! that the
akin be cherished with every means
known to us. It must be guarded
from too long exposure to sun and
wind. It must be guarded from ex- '
cessive dryness and excessive olli
ness. It must be thoroughly cleansed
several times daily so that the in
sidious influence of dust and grime
are not permitted to leave tell
marks. It must be soothed and re
stored by healing lotions. It must
be stimulated into Its full working
power by astringents, the dashing
of cold water on the face, the In
vigorating stimulus of the ice mas
sage. and gentle pattlngs so that cir
culation is virile and so continues
its marvelous work of recreation.
Think of your skin as of a rare
flower that needs love and constant
* care if it is to bloom with the sweet
ness that you hope for.
