thing every woman must find tor her
self if she can. The method is differ

Beauty is in the eve of the behold
er. One of the most famous beauties,
who is telling her "secrets," said one
very true thing when she launched
"Many an ugly woman
has never known she was not beauti
ful, because some good man has loved
ber and lied to her." (Strange how
loving and lying usually go In pairs.)
If every man does not think the
woman he loves beautiful, he makes
ber think the) is beautiful. Usually
Cupid has a pretty way of making
him see through roue-colored lass'H,
and every woman believes the man
she loves. And if either of tht-m
wants to keep on loving and being
loved, they have both got to keep up
those flattering little lies.
It is not because a man knows that
his wife has grown fat and ligly, but
that he tells her so, that women are
perpetually seeking the fountain of
youth and flocking to the obesity
Personally I do not think that beau
ty is so much to be desired as many
other things. It is the most ephemeral
of all the qualities that enhance the
charm of women.
I think if most women would dis
miss a lot of this silly trying to make
themselves ' over, and turn thit
tention to making themselves inter
esting, they would be more popular.
And isa't it popularity we are all
