Says the young wife tartly to her hus band: "I wish you could learn to make dough like my father made It" This story Is an ancient chestnut of the domestic variety, but it en joys a well-deserved Immortal ity because It pre sents to us In a nutshell, as It were.- .the chief reason of why marriage is so often a failure. It Is because both husband and wife are more con cerned with con templating the other's deficiencies than they are their own lack of efficiency. This Is particularly true of men who are so busy watching their wives' faults that they haven't time to notice how far they fall short of making good them selves. And men could, with profit, oc casionally reflect that if their wives do not always measure up to their ideal of what a perfect woman should be, they also bear no striking resemblance to the romantic heroes and demigods that their wives thought they were marrying. There Is the man, for instance, who Is always scolding his wife about her ex travagance, and who Is threatened with an epileptic attack every time the bills come In on tho first of the month. If there is a martyr on earth he knows that he is that afflicted Individual, and he sheds tears of' self-pity when he thinks of how this good money goes for hats and gowns and Paris confections. Instead of blaming his wife so much for spending money. It would be salutary for his soul for him to remhember that If he were a better business man, or If he hustled a little more, he could afford to give his wife the things she wants. Per haps if he didn't waste so much money on smokes and drinks and poker what his wife spends wouldn't come so near to breaking his heart. Then there'B the man who complalnB that? his wife nags, and that as a cur tain lecturer, especially along about 2 Grandma Talks Hatabu-geCircleof Listener Who Prof it by Her WhdW end Experience. In almost any settled community there's fct grandma who knows Mother's Friend; (Not only I she reminiscent of her own experience, but it was through her reeoirf tnendatlon that so many young, expectant mothers derived the comfort and blessing f this iimrc remedy. , Mother's rilend is applied externally to the abdomen, stomach and breasts, altars all pain, avoids all nausea, and prevents caking of the breasts.

IX) not forget nor neglect to be supplied with this greatest remedy ever deviled for motherhood. It is unfailing. Write at once to Bradneld Regu lator Co., 133 Lamar BIdg., Atlanta, Ga., for their very Interesting and Instructive Aeok of advice for expectant mothers. J o'clock In tho morning, she Is a world beater. He considers himself a sadly mis used man, and wonders what his guard Ian angel was doing when he got tied up with that kind of a wife. Wouldn't It make for reformation If he would sit down and consider his own de linquencies instead of his wife's per formances? No woman marries for the pleasure of sitting up at home by her self, through a lonely evening, waiting to open tho door for a man who can't find the keyhole himself, and if under such circumstances she does utter a few surging thoughts he should, at least, have tho Justice to admit that he inspired them by his conduct. The man who spends his evening In the bosom of his family, doesn't have to explain where he has been. Then there's the man who bemoans his fate because his wife Isn't domestic, and because she has the society bee or tho club bee in her bonnet and never wants to stay at home. Wouldn't It be a good thing for him to think a few thoughts about how much he's ever done to make home attractive to her? Wouldn't It be only fair for him to reflect that whllo he expects his wife to stay put In the house, ho was spending his evenings at the club or the corner saloon or some other place where there was something doing? Also .that when he did stay at home he snoozed over his paper from dinner till bedtime, and was Just about as conventionally thrilling as a stuffed bear would have been. Honestly, now, Mr. Man, did you ever know a single, solitary case where a woman wasn't nailed to her own fireside If she had the luck to ba married to a hus band who was good-natured and genial and companionable, and who took a real heart Interest In Orlantal rugs and cur tains and casserole cooking? Whenever you see a woman going mad over clubs and society or philanthropy set It down that she is married to a man who has no more domestic Instincts than a fox ter rier, and that she has given up trying to make a home by herself and Is attempting to fill In her life with a manufactured In terest. And there Is the man who sobs over himself because he has outgrown his wife, and at 45 she is fat and dbwdy and eommonplace, while he's better looking and more fascinating that he ever was before In his life. If this doesn't entitle him to an affinity, he doesn't know what would. Does he ever ask himself how his wife came to be what she is, while he Is what he Is? Does he ever think that the reason he Is so prosperous Is because her econ omy laid the foundation of his fortune and he climbed up to success on her shoulders? That's why they are so bent Her complexion went In the first few years after their marriage when she burnt It out over tbe kitchen stove to save the price of a cook. Those knots on her fin gers represent the days she tolled over the washtub. The luster of her eyes dV.- med In the long nights when she walked sick babies, or sewed endless little clothes. All the energy of her went to pushing him forward, and It she lags behind It's be cause of what she gave him and he ac cepted. It's his fault more than hers. And there's the man who says bitterly that his wife no longer cares for him, and that he's nothing but a money-making machine for her. Does he ever ask himself why his wife should love him? What does he do to keep the sacred flro alight on the altar of her heart? He supports her, He sup plies her with food and clothes. Any woman who keeps house earns her board and keep. Vou pay a cook or housemaid more than that, so that makes no claim of gratitude upon a wife. A man who keeps his wife's love must do more than pay her bills. It you don't, If you never show her any little detlcate attention, if you never make love to her, Jf you rarely ipjak to her except to find fault, what's to keep her from falling In love with some other roan? What's to prevent her from feeding her hungry heart with the affection some other man offers her? Consider that side of the question, Mr. Man. When a marriage turns out badly the man invariably blames it on bis wife, but tho fault is his oftener than It Is hers. He's guilty of at least contributory negligence. Beauty Secrets of Beautiful "Women ""Study Your Expression," Says Pretty Gertrude Barnes if Sisters All Dy WILLIAM P. KIRK. When Eve wan told, and Adam, too. To pack tholr raiment and skldoo, Poor Adam said, "It can't be helped," But thin Is what his awootheart yclpod: "If woman had a vote, you not ' Wo'd bo within the Garden yet," By LILIAN LAUFERTV. "Smile and curl up your mouth cor ners." said merry Gertrude Barnes, She had Just finished doing five character songs In characteristic costumes. She had run the gamut of emotion from the naughty little "enfant terrible" through the stranded show-girl longing for the "old Kentucky home" to the mirth-mad exponent of "Row, row, row." And all this earnest and successful effort to please her audience left her cool, buoyant and ready to give the whole world of girls the kindly benefit of her study of how to have "a sane mind In a healthy body." "Expression is important for character as well as to aid the search after beauty," said pretty Miss Gertrude, with laugh ing earnestness. "I used to be afraid to smile all I wanted to for fear I would get those heavy lines from nostril to Up; and then suddenly I became aware of all the hard-looking faces one sees and the chief reason for the hardness was down drooping, disagreeable looking lips. I decided at once to tak a chance on the lesser evil, and began curling my mouth up at the comers, even when I was not particularly- anxlotls to 'look pleasant, please'; now as a result there may be lines around my mouth, but they are lines of pleasantnessaren't they?" she added anxiously. "And sometimes when I am ready to feel cross my mouth keeps on smiling and I recover." Merry good nature and kindly Interest In life happen to be among the greatest charms of Miss Barnes' animated, ex pressive face, and very pleasing Is the Miss Barnes in a summery pose. twinkle that reflects from big brown eyes to the merry dimpled corners of her thls- Is-a-flne-old-world mouth. "You may safely go on smiling," I said with a smile of my own; "but how about all the other expressions you bring In rapid succession to your face don't they make lines?" "Not lines that stay," answered Miss Barnes. "You see, I have a few methods of keeping my skin In good condition. They are cold water, sunburn and tan." "Sunburn and tanl" I exclaimed. "I thought they were fatal to the fine tex ture of the skin." "Perhaps they are fatal to tlifl old, worn-out outer layer they destroy, But thoy glvo .tho fresh new layer waiting underneath a chance and they help give strong, firm flesh, good healthy flesh, without whloh fine-textured skin Is Just Impossible. And sunburn and tan come from plenty of sunlight and fresh air, which are the best things In the whole world for the health and beauty seeker. So there you are In a perfect circle, when you have added plenty of cold water and served up a fine, healthy skin on a background of strong, firm flesh that can throw off the little lines you make temporarily by twisting your face around Into any extreme of expression you choose. "Cold wir cold water cold water! Won't you sing its praises very earnestly, please? And tell all the girls not to be afraid of the charm of expression they may Indulge in it all they like If they have been sun-burned and tanned and cold-watered, with good massage-like splashes that makes th skin strong enough to throw off the little temporary blemishes of lines and wrinkles. "Oh, my circle is not complete yet," laughed the cheery star, "I have a little more to say about fresh air. do out Into it all you can, and hunt and ride If you can. Riding Is wonderful for the muscles of the limbs; hunting develops the muscles of tho waist but If you can do nelthor, swim. Anyone can swim If she Just chooses to learn how and it Is a most wonderful, Inspiring, lung-ftlllng, flesh hardening form of exercise. "I manufactured a lot of my own healthfulness by going after It very earnestly. Being a water-baby and being an outdoor girl are almost equally Im portant; thoy both make you healthy, and If you are wise enough to be both your chances of being a beauty Increase. "You see, fresh air and exercise have trained my figure for me, so I don't have to rely on corsets to do It. They hav trained my skin for me, so I don't have to hold my face In a mask-like expres sion In order to avoid lines and wrinkles so there Is my basis, and then I go ahead and try to make the most of my looks, although I know perfectly well that the result Is not beauty." But on this latter bit of Information Miss Gertrude Barnes has a monopoly, for good features added to the winsome charm of a bright face and the pose of a healthy body surely deserve the title of beauty, "Now about arranging your face to the best advantage," said Miss Barnes with the earnest attention to every detail that makes her work so pleasing and conver sation with her a true delight "Of course, When Cleopatra, wondrous girl, Made all of Antony's senses whirl, Charming him through tho passing hours Within her Alexandria bowers; Bravo Antony romarkod: "My sweat, I'll lay tho whole world Tit your foot!"

The criticisms aro at least based on sincerity. rwi't rrcnrA nverv compliment paid j w i. an . i v uuvn j - - - your photograph taken. Frequent visits to a photographer aro signs of a vain mli)d. Don't accept attentions from the wronjr kind of a man, excusing yourself bo cause they mean nothing and are trivial. Remember that the girl who walks only as far as the corner with tho wrong kind It Is Inadvisable for a girl who wishes to be acoeptcd at face value as a lady to use any makeup on tho street, for she Is sure. to look conspicuous and artificial for the one all-embracing reason that without the earnest study an actress gives the subject the gentle art of makeup becomes a farce, Instead of an art. "However, any girl can teach her eye brows to grow In a smooth, protty curve by brushing them at night and morning with a tiny brush; and eood cream will keep the face clean as to Its pores as well as on the surface; and a well-polsed head adds a final touch of charm. Girls should cultivate tho habit of holding their heads with the natural poise of a flower Instead of Jutting forward like a crag, or bending back with the curve of a llghtnlng-struck tree. "And learn to design your own clothos. Make them express you so your person ality will be a rounded whole without one Jarring note." And since there Is no Jarring note In Miss nanvts' unaffected, wholesome per sonality, this final bit of advice fits In with the beauty study of an expert in whatever she undertakes and la well worth following, of man will meat every one she knows on tho way. Don't seek Information from a dream book. No one expects much from tho girl who seeks Information from a dream book Instead of from an encyclopedia. Don't get the prevalent notion that th young man who spends a month's salary In giving you a good time thinks more of you than the man who refuses to spend a week's. The latter loves more sanely. Don't overlook the Importance of a love offalr with your father. That Is the best Investment In the love of man that any girl can make. 1 Don't forgot that mother Is a human being, and sometimes gets tired. Don't feel the third time a young man has called on you that It Is time for you to take possession and demand that he account for the evenings he spent some where else. Don't resent the desire of your parent to know something of the young man who calls on you. They fall In their duty to you If they lack this desire, or fall to act upon It. Don't give your heart to a man who refers to his parents as "the old lady" and "the old man." Don't ever outgrow the habit of your childhood of telling your mother when you get home all that happened at the party. It is more important that you tell her what happens now you are grown than that you told her when you wero little. Don't forget, If you have a little that you have more than your parents had In their youth, and that they have struggled every day since you came Into the world with that unselfish ambition in view.
