IT IS OF tremendous importance to the general welfare of the body

Have you seen a Marathon runner with his

The toe dancer performs with that marvelous

Why not get acquainted with your foot?
Take a good look at it and learn to appreciate it!
Right below your ankle is a piece of anatomic
structure the like of which you cannot find the
world over. Bend, twist, turn it, and the foot
moves smoothly. It is flexible and strong.

How much did Harry Under-*•

Lillian's life which had
Robert Savarin for its head

like an undercurrent through the
memories which had come thronging
upon me as I read the famous
artist's name upon the express re
ceipt as the shipper of the wooden
box to Lillian.
That h** kn»w enough to cherish a
most lively Jealousy of the artist 1
was sure, for I had once seen his
contorted face when he spoke of
Marion's affection for Savarin as
contrasted w:th her aversion to hlm

transformed Into genuine liking, but
1 was sure even that welcome knowl- I
edge had not changed Mr. Under
wood’s feeling toward the man who
had given Lillian a wonderful de
votion in the years of his own ex
patriation.
There had been too many years of i
callous neglect upon the hushand s
part, of bitter resentment upon the
wife's, to make shock perfect their
reunion, even though Harry Under
wood had royally expiated that neg
lect in the government work, which
nearly cost him the life which he had
laid at her fee? with the plea. “Will
it do, Lil?” That both were now

guessed Harry Underwood's Jealousy
born of that belated love, and I
feared the reaction which Lillian's
pride—and memories—might present
* to any exhibition of resentment upon
B her busKnnd's part.
My memories and fears had cov- {

life, yet there was but the space of a

hia voice—"I am sura you would i

interesting box is opened. With
your kind permission I'll send him
in to you at once."
He bent from the waist in another
bow «traightene4 himself, wheeled
with a touch of military precision
and stalked out of the door. From
the corner of my eye I saw Lillian
stretch out her hand to him and then
draw it b%-k so quickly that I knew
the first movement had been an in
voluntary one. But her husband’s
eyes had been carefully averted from
her. and I knew he had not seen the
placatory little movement.
But I had seen her eyes, and as the
door closed behind him. I took her by
the arm and marched her into the
nearest room, th» library, and put
her into an easy chair.
->oi a toward, let:
“Shut your eyes and pull yourself
together.” I commanded. “Would
you like to have me oversee Jim's
opening of that box?”
She looked up at me gratefully.
“If you only would.” she breathed,
then. a9 I nodded, she gripped my
hand and threw up her head.
"No." she said, explosively. “I’m
not quite a coward yet. But this is
so unexpected that it has unnerved
me. I thought that chapter was
closed—forever. What do you sup
pose Robert means by this?"
I hesitated, then put a direct ques
tion.
“Doe* Robert know that you and
Harry are reconciled?"
“I don't know.” she said, after a
troubled little pause. "Everything
was finally settled between us when
he went to Europe the last time.
Robert understood at last—after a
great deal of difficulty—that I never
meant to see him again or write to
him. It was terribly—hard—for me
—how hard nobody will ever know—
but his own attitude toward mv
work—and Marion-Mhough he loved
her dearly—made it impossible for
me to take any other course.”
There were little beads of water
upon her forehead now, and I
realized that though she no longer
cared for Robert Savarln. the
memory of that torturing conflict
still had power to shake her. I put
down my hand and grasped hers
firmly.
“No good going over it." I said.
She gripped my hand until I
winced.
“I know that.” she said, “but I've
got to get this straightened out in
; my own mind. I've never written
to Robert anything about—Harry—
and—me—for I didn't think it wise.
But I heard that he had returned to
his home in the Catskills, and. of
course, he may have heard of it
through a dozen sources.”
"Do you think—” I put the
I question hesitantly, hut I felt that it
was one which I ought to ask—“that
his mind may have given way again,
and that this may be-”
I did not finish, for she had risen
with a little cry. her face ashen, and

| cleg Arm and taut. Thousands of
women have corrected sagging
arm muscles and sagging abdomi- .
nal muscles by sticking to a prop
erly constructed exercise routine.
If this is true, and we know that it
is, then what is more logical than
that sagging face muscles can be
made firm and healthful again by
proper exercise?
Most muscles sag, whether it be
! those of the face or in other parts (
of the body, because they become,
lazy. We sit and stand improperly.
| therefore the abdominal muscles
are thrown out of line. Because
j we, by our incorrect posture, re
lieve these muscles of their in
tended work they become relaxed
and lazy. We alone are to blame
! in such cases.
With those muscles that are
, found in the face this reaction is
. frequently caused because we^ire
gium anil sour in our uisposmon
and so let all the muscles in the
face droop. With constant relaxa
tion of this kind the muscles be
come lazy, just as the abdominal
muscles do when we sit and stand
incorrectly.
The temporal muscle is a large
muscle that begins at the top of
the head, spreading fan-shaped
from the center of the forehead
to the temples. At this point it
narrows and then spreads out
again forming the major muscular
development of the cheeks. There
fore this muscle is largely respon
sible for the contour of the face.
When the temporal muscle be
comes sluggish from inactivity we
have lines and sagging It is pos
sible to stir that muscle into its
normal activity by masage, thus
stimulating circulation and invig
orating the tired, sluggish muscle
structure of the face.
I do not approve, however, of
lengthy steaming which fre
quently is inaugurated into mas
sage treatments. This I believe is
unnecessary and tends to be
ntVr more harmful than bene
ficial.
A liberal application of cream
should be applied to the face and
throat before beginning a massage
routine. This is to enable the
fingers to slip easily over the skin
so that the delicate tissues are not
bruised nor the skin itself,
stretched.
Four movements for massaging
or exercising the temporal muscle
are sufficient. General rules for
massage are these: never come
back over the direction of the mas
sage, keeping all movement in an
upward direction. When your
fingers reach their destination, lift
them from the skin and go back
to the starting point.
The first of the four baste
movements for exercising the tem
poral muscle Is called the A to
B movement. The tips of the fin
gers are placed lightly, but firmly
at the corners of the mouth ami
worked up to the lobes of the ears.
The second movement is the C
. to D and this one begins at the
j nostrils and works up to the
1 temples.
Ilf lo r is ins mini action, rmrr
