I wonder if tlie ranoli boyjvveaueil away long ago from his chaps and his high-heeled boots and his Stetson, lost, in Physical Cnltnrc It work on the farm makes the mat laborer muscle-bound, ono tided In ! volopincnt and takes life unci spring from his movements, tho results tire oven more disastrous on tho physical development ot the woman. Ab a rule women work Indoors and an debarred tho advantago that tho man has In working always In the puro air. There Is also a deadly monotony about tho wo man's share of farm work, nnd work done without lightness and gladness Is apt to make tho worker listless of move ment and stooping- of shoulders. Koi women farm work moans bending over a hot cooking stove, washing innumerable dishes, laundering heavy clothes nnd end less chores often -eyond ncr pnystcui strength. As a mlo farmers' wives are healthy women; their lot Is far preferable to that of factory workers nnd under certain conditions belter than offlco or store employment. It cannot bo denied, how ever, that farm-bred women age young, that In many cases they e'ueoumb to tho sameness of their tasks, and the body- becomes bent and Btlff whllo still In tho youth of Ufo. Physical culture Is aa ne oasary to tho woman on the farm as to the shut-In dcnlxcns of a big city. it Is Indeed difficult to Point out ap.V ono otcupatlon that develops every niun clo ot the body. Tho child's games and tho "sports" ot tho adolescent answer the youthful demands for physical ex ercise, but few older people fee) this de mand, They ara comfortable us Ihey are, and as yearn go on there Is loss and lean dcslro for physical exorcise. M the same time most people admit that they are nollher perfectly healthy nor well proportioned. What doeB not ocur ti the average man or woman Is that weight and proportion, can be control?! and that muscular development Is not a gift of nature, but the result .if i-ystem-atlo training. Advice to the Lovelorn a maze of city ways, polished down and successful, even while he whispers, love notes into the ear of n girl of his new-found kind, doesn't see against the fashionable mob and the bird-nien dotted sky, tho laughing, wind-blown, rough-booted little wraith of tho "girl he left behind him?' NELL BRINKLEY. e ' . I (Tr ' ! -u i . The Dress Habit Girls Have a Habit of Wearing Their Best to Work and Are Surprised If They Are Criticised uy Those Who Know By DOROTHY DIX I have received an Interesting commu nication from a working girl who wants to know whether a business woman must Invariably belong to the plain shirtwaist-and-sklrt brigade In order to avoid crlU Icism abut her clothe; The young woman writes: "I am a business girl of S4 and main tain that business women have little opportunity to ex press their Individ uality outside ot working hours; that a business womanjs friends, male and female, are usually the business people whom she meets at her place of work. or on -the street .. during thb lunch hour, or mornings and evenings when she Is going to and from her work. Therefore, It being generally conceded that every -woman particularly, desires to look her best when Bhe meets her friends, is it not rather unjust for one to be made to feel inappropriately dressed and subject to ridicule. If ono (being a woman) Invests in a string of beads to harmonise with a becoming-blue blouse a la mode, which she -wears to work, thus plainly decrying the uniform v trtilrtwalst And skirt?

But my correspondent's logic Is not sound. Sjhc contends that a. business woman .has a perfect right to wear liee most becoming finery to work becausa 'she has no other place to wear It. Qn tho same grounds she might advocate a woman decking herself out In her ball j gown, to go tij Church, because sho was never inviteu to uanccs, out eouiu al ways go to church. Of course, there's no denying Miaf colored chiffons are more becoming than plain linen, or muslin, or silk. Also that a lace ruffle Is less trying than a stiff white collar. Likewise that .1 string of beads may have, a highly decorative effect. Moreover, H is Incontestable true that a foot never looks so small .13 when clad In a Bilk stocking and a high netted pump, and nobody will arguo the tact that most complexions arc Improved by a little rogue Judiciously applied, a.nd the addition ot a small quantity of ilco powder. But suppose my correspondent wa3 go ing to do business -with two ynung women, and one of them cdme auimrrellcd neat.

May or Mary, Tom, Dick or Harry, there will be a moment's diversion from business and business thoughts in the To Ward Off Summer Complexion Ills To keep the face smooth, white and beautiful all summer, there's nothing quite so good as ordinary mercollxed wax. Oily, rreckled or discolored skin, so common at this season. Is gently absorbed by tne wax and replaced by the newer, fresher skin beneath. The face exhibits no trace of tho wax. the1 latter being applied at bedtime and washed off mornings. Creams, powders and rouges, on the other hand, are apt to appear more oonslcuous than usual these days of excessive perspiration. Just get an ounce of mercollied wax at any drug store and use like cold cream. ' This will help any skin ot once, and in a wttk or so the complexion will look remarkably youthful and healthy. Sun, winds and flying dust often cause squinting and otuer contortions which make -wrinkles. You can quickly get rid of every wrinkle, however produced, by using a harmless face bath made by dis solving l bs. powdered saxollte In V PC witch hazel.

Which of these women would sho want to do business with? Which one would sho plckout for a worker? Which ono would she expect to succeed. Tt doesn't take any prophet to mswer that. PosBlbly the fashion plate Is' Just as Intelligent, just as industrious, Just as j efficient as Miss Trim, but ahe (oesn't ! look the part, and .we go a lot on locks In this Hfo, you know, especially when. It's a woman's looks. , Sometimes a woman's clothes do her a cruel Injustice, as in the case of a 'young' girl I knew who lost a splendid' Job be cause she dressed too finely. "pamc; down to the office dressed up in .silks and satins, and every man that came, 'In i gave her the once over, and then askH me 'Who's the queen?" " said her vm. Ployer. "Couldn't stand for that, ina' I didn't have the nerVe to tell her that a working girl has to dress respectably to hao people think her respectablo-aiid yet a more honest soul than this girl never lived."

Von ie. at ;t glance, that Jupiter is nothing o a globo ot clouds, ut least as tar us mtr telesciplu vision can penetrati a glpbs of gom and vapors some 1,300 tlmaa us voluminous as the earth. Jupiter Is a put-out sun, put out by the accumulation of absorbing clouds around It aa Its tcmporaturo fell. It may havt, deep within, u solid nucleus, but If so we know nothing about It. To the best of our knawledgo It is all vaporous and gaseous. Of course Its vapors are denser than those of our atmosphere, owing o the greater force of attraction of so fm msnso u planet. And ye the moun don. ally of Jupiter 1 only about one-thiid greater than that of water, so that on Its surface, nnd far below Its surface, every thing must hav tie consistency of clonda. Hint gigantic world in a swirling ma of apois. turning so swiftly thot a single rotation is made In ten hours. Any point on Us Mirfuco that you see In tho plcturo l i continually sweeping paU with a spoed of 27.000 miles pw hour. On Jupiter the sun-looklnc only one twenty-fifth ns large as It does to us-appears to move m fast touml the sky, l consequence of tho planet's rapid rotation, thut only two and a half hours elapse between sunrioo and noon. In tlio afternoon the sun slides down the sky an If it were slipping on an ley slope, bo fast that the eye. with a little ettontlon, could detect Its motion. The sunlight plays upon a vast surface ot tumbling clouds, which are drawn out into the broad belts shown in the picture, as a result of the swift rotation. Jf von coud step upon the surface ot Jupiter that the telescope roveals you would drop uuwn w.rougn it as If y01, had stepped upon tho summit of a "thunder-head." But wuu.u noi lau through the cloud and sea a solid globe benoath you when you camo out. On the contrary you would gJ on dropping through the thickening vapors until you had fallen perhaps 10.0C0 miles, or evon mpro, before tho Increasing density of the mass arrested your descent You would have to go about 43.O0O miles In cidor to nttsln tho center.

During the two years I urn employed 1 became acquainted with a young man of twenty. During our acquaintance, he has taken mo out twice and several times camo to my office to soo mo. When 1 meet him on the street and he Is with any ot his friends ho ul ways gives me an Introduction. When speaking to him through the 'phone dally on account of business, ho speaks quite sensibly and mannerly nnd regards me an a ir.end. Now, What I want to Know tr., do you think he cares for me? I have taken a liking to him and want to win his love but do not want to Jump at him like othor girls and then be left out. A CONSTANT READER. Do not try to foreo this young man to be any mora attentive to you than ho tie s'res, Don't make any demands or give any evidence ot wanting to chain him, to your side. Men prefer to do their owfi courting. If you. are always sweet, amiable and friendly without any attitude of silly giggling or of demanding as your right the kindness he now gives freely, I thlpl: his Interest will deepen, since It seems to 1h very genuine. jniattrt nvsBB Are You FAT?

Household Hints WHon buying tea, before using It spread it on a sheet of paper und ulncn It In a warm but not too hot oven from ten to fifteen minutes. By doing this ,th tea -will bo made to go much fai thir, and the flavor will be greatly Improved. Mprlnkle dry flour ovor any Japanned trays that are beginning to look shabby; Leave for an hour or so, then rub 'ft the flour, and polish with- a soft duster. It Is wonderful how this trcatmont wll Improve even a shabby tray, The popular cabbage Is useful for draw ing and cleansing a gathered linger cr poisoned hand. Take 11 eabbage leaf, roll It out with a bottle until the lulce epmes, and tie It on the affected part. To remove the smell of fish or cab bage from a saucepan, burn a piece of brown paper pn the fire and turn 'he saucepan down over the burning paper. This will remove all odor, whatever It Is, In a few seconds. Bait will remove black beetles. iut plenty of salt where the beetles fre quent, and keep It there for a week. Do not lenvo jiny water whsre tho Insects go. When they cat tho salt It will dry up their bodice. To prevent milk from boiling over place an ordinary pte-chlmney in tho centre of the pan ot milk. When It commences to boll It will boll up through the little ohlmnoy and not over the ide ot tho saucepan. When peeling onions hold a cork be tween the teeth, and the eyes will not become affected.
