A letter from town the_o.tlicr tlay told of a clubman whose first, assertion of i.rim.1 i-lg-hKK was TO wiiKh Ids w-hVs face. During his courtship-be Inul been comlnually anoyed by the amount of powder and rouge tlifft the young lady favored, but he forgave .her-the nse of it, considered her-Innocence, and always determ'incd, if she became his fe, to make her understand the tli-nrm of a clean face. Every HOW aud ......n-f.'i.s'li'lo'ii wiif.cvrs COHTC out and s-ny that women In good society do not use powder find rouge. How Is It then that fortunes arc made ou these two undesiraible articles, and how is it that thousands upon thousands of boxes of flue face powder are m.'imifacturcd every year? Certadnly it is not doue that they may be thrown Info the river. I spoak of powder and rouge as objectionable. They .'ire in a way, but times come when a greasy-looking face is improved by some fine powder and a pale skin is made to look healthy, for .veuiug wear, by tlio clever addition of a little rouge. But both powder and :ouge must, If ever, .be used practically. Tbe question on the lips of the nvcr- igc girl in the country as well as to the ,'ity seems to be about her complexion and a woman will make herself look ike the mischief and undergo all sorts. of torments for the sake of improving her skin: THE COMPLEXION MASK. 1 heard of a bride who was sulllciein- ly self-possessed to say to the bride- join of a I'ew hours, "Well, my dear boy, my c<jiii'pto ! o.u, wlrtcli looks so nice, would be wretched If I did not cover i-t every 'night with a mixture tliait has an egg beaten In It; over this, to prevent soiling tbe pillow, aud to keep the aJr out, I tie a 'quilted mask, with openings made for uiy eyes, nose and ruou'th, and I canuot think of stop- ling it now. You would have to know •t a link- later on, and you might'just as well gat- used to i-t lu tbe beginning." She told me this herself, and added that men were so very ridiculous for tMs bridegroom made a great row about this complexion, mask, and preferred to sleep on the lounge. Ore for the completion is really becoming a fad, to which tlie FrencJi slang "infect" is very apropos. [Womankind •walks, "eats, bathes, perfumes, powders,' rouges, dresses all. with thought of some special style. This would'be very well if women would keep quiet about it, but get a lot of them together, and certain as Mite they begin to discuss and spread their knowledge. ... • • -Some woman will tell about something that WILL BRIGHTEN''THE EYES or make them look larger, another will give a recipe 1'or making the ilesh firm, or announce a system by which it can be increased or decreased. A professor, n feminine one, of the art of rouging, said that "Dark-eyed women should put n touch of rouge immediately under tlie eyes; this will teud to make them look larger, deepen their color and cause them to Hash. But a dasli of rouge does not mean all that is in the box. Instead, it means a careful shading, with a bit of soft linen and the following exactly the shape of the eye aud the cheek. Women talk about rouging the ears—that Is non- sen-se. Whenever rouge is used the lobe of the ear and the tip of tlie chin should be touched with it because if you notice you will see that when wo- men'flush these parts grow a little rosy." Continuing, this artist In makeup announced that, for the eyebrows a little tlnctiire of cnntborldos rubbed on once a week with the tip of t;he linger, and then some vaseline applied iln tlie name way, would increase tlieir jrrowitili. SJio added titan, rubbtog tbe eyes tends to destroy their 'uenuty. Olive oil, she counts as a great assistant iu - ' , 'THE ART OF BECOMING BEAUTIFUL. -. A little-is to be rubbed on when the fnco Is rough. It is used In connection with massage to increase tbe slue of : the bust, and It is iilso chosen, to make the skin of tin? hands delicate and white, but then 'It must be diluted with rosi- water. For' a fevered breath, a few drops in a glass of water Is used as n gargle, while if tills professor discovers that her nose is getting a little red, she'traces it' usually' •to a determination'to make.her waist small, or to wearing tight shoes. Then she applies camphor to it, loosens her stays and finds tbe color reduced after a little while'.. No woman who wants to be beautiful should get up early. She should sleep anil sleep well. Not toolmneh.on one side, for that Will cause wrinkles about the eyes, and make'one .ebtir* side of the 'figure less rojirid than.,tbe.other, in sleeping,' flic.mouth must.be closed, and no matter how,soft the cbverlld Is, It must never be drawn over the head. Most important of all', to, the. woman who wishes to become beautiful, Is It .to eat well. She must. not eat too much, but a great' deal of discrlm a^tlon-^ust^ By'tlie bye, I hate"that"wdr-d "food)" t always sounds so gross. .Game of all kinds, salads, fruit, -cutlets, roasts, sggs, are all good for n woman's beau-- fy', juid as It deserves, everything fried n'n'd everything greasy must be treated •wilh disgust., .Cocoa, chocolate and ill sweet wines are good for the bounty seekers. The Sout'liern wojnen at- i-ibnti! tlicir ra.tluir delicate Iwi.uty to M-IEm FONDNESS FOB CHICKEN, rind I am sure that there Is some truth In this, •. ' •• " •' The womnn who is too stout, must give up a-11 SAveets, all starchy foods, uid she must refuse gravies as if they were poison. A double chin can usually be traced to gravy, while an offensively large bust is due not only to rupropcr food, but to improper stays. When flesh comes it has to go some place. NCAV, tbe woman who wants a slender waist Imagines that by having licr maid pull the strings of her stays as tight as they can be drawn she is downing tlie flesh. Sbe is not. She. is simply getting rid of It, nt the waist line and forcing it above and below, so that, in time, slie becomes n most offensive shape. Women who want to ln : crease their flush should drive, not walk, should eat rice, drink milk, adore smooth gravies, long for bread nud butter, indulge iu cocoa, ent. as much chicken as possible ,love soup aud Joy over swoots, nuts and bonbons. They fliould LET SOUR WINES ALONE and drink good burgundy and champagne*whenever it can be gotten. If nnybody is brave enough to drink :hree quarts o-f milk a day,"ent grapes, oranges, apples, rice and bread and butter, she will.fatten like a Strasburg goose. . But nobody will be beautiful who has not a good digestion. Tbat is the secret, of -everything beautiful. Clear eyes, wbite skin; good, firm flesh, a sweet breath, white hands, rosy nails and good hair cease to exist when the digestion Is out. of order. If you doubt this, look at a dyspeptic. Her eyes are dull with dark lines under (hem; her flesh is flabby, her skin is either pale or yellow, her nails are .white, her hands nre dry looking nnd her hair Is crisp, inclined to break, shows different colors, and lacks all gloss. Therefore, TUB FIUST SECRET OF BEAUTY Is good health. The -next is cleanliness and after that a woman needs to be 'wise enough to look after her diet, nnid 'to have on her toile* tmble simple coii'Coctious ihat are to be used for simple complaints. Once anything of importance is the matter with you, do not try to cure yourself if you wish to keep beautiful. Start off to the best doctor you know and pay him a good fee to make you well. Not to just cure the ailment, but 1o find what caused it, and to force that to disappear. : Foolish women, once In .a while, announce that to keep beautiful, a woman should plunge Into a cold-bath.; Now, to the average American woman, a cold batb is a terrible shock, and a shock Is followed by nervousness, and nervousness means IOMS of beauty. The best bath is a tepid one. This should be taken In. the morning, nnd If it Is followed by a good rubbing, one can go out. even in the coldest weather without tow of CTiitchlng cold. An, occasional extremely hot bath should bo taken at night. This Is .„ A PURELY CLEANSING BATH, lricc.lt forces the skin to open Its pores and throw out every particle of dust that they have managed to accumulate, and to which they hold with a tightness that is wonderful. While I am preaching, I might just ns well tell what is an .absolute truth. One-half the women ore not as particular about their linen.as they should be. They wcnr clothes'that look clean..but that •ire really not pure from the standpoint of good health. Be Jis extravagant as you like with three people and you will be beautiful. These nre your laundress, your cook and your doctor. Then give a great deal of thought to the way your, table appears, because you must tempt your own appetite. A FRENCHMAN'S IDEAL. ,A good story translated from the French, is going the rounds of the English press, but it may not have reached f, Indigisiipn'w^d ,Too,Hcar^y, Eating."..',,A per,- ; '.^*^$&]Ptyv&fr$W?!l&? P r , ows v.' ness, ial'Tast^in'tKe'Mouffi, Coated Tongue. ' r ' ! ' ^V^yeti-S'"^ '-UHM'ibeti to 'ii f-rl«nd:'"l -have Just seen an adorable woman. Sto bas the most beautiful eyebrows iu tlie world— which she draws with the point oC a crayon; the most beautiful eyes—produced by cos-metic-lndea lashes; the most perfect ui'outh—fashioned out ol! carmine, aud, in addition, not a hair that she can call her own." TJie friend answered: "She must bo. n monster." .. ">"o" said Baudelaire, "she Is a great artist." I do not tell this story to encourage girls to use cosmetics, but I I.ell It to encourage my listeners, who happen to be Aunt Maria, Nanny.aud the girl from next door, .to use every-, thlug thnt Is right to raako them look beautiful. Men should be handsome In the sense of being well- made, knit together, and strong. Women should be beautiful, .not necessarily through having perfect features, but with' white skins, with-soft, expressive eyes, with tender hands, with beautiful 1 li.ilr, beautiful in its gloss, In its quantity, in Its color a'ud In Its arrangement, nud then they should move around in the quiet way so essential lu a woman mill speak in tlio so'ft, low voice that a woman must cultivate before she can even be pretty. A woman who talks through her nose, who speaks loudly, who usos b.-id gramiunr is'not a beautiful womnn. A woman who trots, a woman who gallops, a. woman who strides is not only not a beautiful wo- mnn, but she makes one wonder whether she is a woman nt all. It. is as -easy to learn to walk well ns it is to • speak well, to l:vugh w<ill and to bo Iwppy. BEING HATTY IS A NECESSITY If one wishes to be beautiful, and being happy really means being hopeful. It means forgetting the sorrow of today and looking forward to the happiness of to-morrow. It means forgetting the worries of life and thinking of its joys. It is so easy to be happy if one will only make up one's mind to it. Find pleasure In everything, and if you can laugh merrily at everything that comes into your life, and laugh properly, you will be pretty even If you are not beautiful, for your mouth will shape itself well. ^ By the bye, speaJciug of the -mouth, unless you have beautiful -teeth learn to HOLD YOUR LIPS CLOSE TOGETHER. Get over the bad habit of permitting your gums to be seen. But you ought to 'have beautiful teeth. The dentist of today Is a magician, and tooth brushes are chomp, and if you have nothing better, soap is a good dentifrice. Pearls in the shape o! lovely teeth should be iu tbe mouth of every woman, while diamonds in the shape of Interesting words should fall from her .lips whenever she opens them. Women nre always generous; that is. the normal woman. It is tbe abnormal woman who is a miser. And when a woman grows greedy or too fond of .money, she grows iiffly. She draws her lips to closely together, her jawbone seems to fall down and become square rather than curved, her eyes, In their desire to see everything, become small, and with her loss of generosity comes the loss of good looks. 1 No woman needs be a spendthrift, but every woman cni) be generous aud share her good gifts with those who need. It becomes a woman to bo .kindly fliml to tiliiiuk of those who in this world have less than she.. IT MAKES ONE LOVE A WOMAN to think that she remembers what you would like to posses and longs to give It to you. Once a woman grove stingy she loses friends, and lovers. Of ten- times, in her greed for wealth she does •not airo. about this. She is rapidly becoming less of a woman and more of a machine. In time she becomes that most disgusting of all creatures.a woman of busiucss. That woman who measures the hours of tlie day by their value, who counts life as worth nothing since it .is no* bought or sold. She Is the trader, and not Hie woman. She mny be desirable back of tbe desk, but she is a.iiioust.cnbeside a sick.bed or where death has come. She 'will try to haggle with death when he demands that she shall follow "him, and. then, as ten.'only, will she find that gold is worth but'little, that It buys no future, and that she criun'ot take it with her. Fancy her deathbed: Thank goodness, her number is few.- • . • .Aunt Maria looks frightened,.

Highway robberies, even under modem name of "hold-ups," which alters nothing of their character, have become decidedly rare In the far northwest; awl they are likely, to become still rarer if oil intended victims make as brave and effective resistance aa did a grocer of Itainier, Washington, recently. This g rocer, 1 •whosec name is Hubert, Btarted from Eainier with bis Tvagcm one night to go loTacomatobuy goods. •With him -was a 13-year-old boy... tt? carried $106 to pay for his purchases. 'While he was about two miles from Uo y and on a lonely rood two highway- . men stepped out, confronted the grocer, TOi«h«d a, pistol into his ; face, and commanded him to dismount and handover. 'his money. ' Hubert had no notion of giving up tfie money, but he did not wasteany time m thinking up a plaa for beating the. robbers.,- He began, to get down £">»«'?. wagon as if .to. comply, .and as he d,d so he struck the rascal who held the pistol a terrible blow which : felled him to the Ground: Hubert then came clown with one heavy fooVupoiMbo .wrist of the hnnd which held :the revolver. While the robber was in. this position. the crocer snatched the weapon-away from him and .pointed .it at. the other rascal. It turned out tliat the second robber ha<Tno pistol. Hubert commanded him to put iip his hands, whjca he did.- •'••'.•'• , Meantime the first man was insensible from the terrible blow -which. Hubert had dealt him.. Hubert made the second hold up his hands for ten mln- ules until the first had recovered his senses Then he commanded, the first to get up, and told them both to march. ivhich.they did. • • ' . Thus the grocer took them both into tlie town of Hoy, the boy driving close behind with the horses and wngon. U'Hov the thwarted highwaymen were .turned over to a constable and locked up, and the grocer went on his way to Tacoraa. • _ . _ DID IT HURT YOU? A QaojCloi Ortoii Out of Place and O« 'oocc«iMtrr. The old hymn in Sam "Original Poerhs" beginning with Who lf ang to Help Me When I Fell?" , ought to have a provisional clause added to it.. •The person wJw' hastens, to. help a sufferer who. has been shocked by a fall should h'bf'say ,a 'single word. Of coarit; says-the : Philadelphia Record, the benovelcnt bj-etenaer is brimful of questions:' "Where;; are , yon: ^hurt?,.' Hove you •, sprained your ankje?'' and lastly .the insane., request to : know. whfitiier you win .fall .down a. fligh.t^of. 20 steps qr'frpm.a piazza fen feet above ground ; and not be' dnaitoged any more 'thnn'if yoii'had'thrown-yoTirself^on a doWn pillow only^a foofnwayl Of course you ore hurt; and the nerve shock is so great thnt any sort of ques- tion, even if "they" shall fetch hot water, is an additional blow to the nervous pystem. You. are suffering, perhaps, too much to speak; yet they pelt you •with questions while every ]>ower of your body is endeavoring to regain self- control. You ought not to -answer. You would Hke to scream;... that "it hurts" a hundred times more for being- summoned to speak and to diagnose yourself. All instructions >nW| Jpe of "First-aid to the injured 1 *-should begin with: "Be perfectly silent when you run to lift or help a person Who has fallen and is still partly dazed with the tremendous shock." Let it be for the sufferer to say: "Oh, my head3" or -Oh, my leg, or back!" He will indicate as soon as it is necessary the injured part; but" meanwhile-you. are driving him nearly'frantic by niking about it. These simple yet important direction* do not seem tt> be impressed upon the •average helpful mind. ' Tact, of all things, is as necessary as a knowledge of a tourniquet made from a stick and a pocket handkerchief. Hot water, of course,, is required;for all .bruises and. sprains; -but let it be brought witiont asking. The relief to the victim of an accident in having swift and noiseless helpers about him or her—absolutely silent, yet knowing exactly what to do— is very great. Anyone who "has been there" knows it ell. Yet how quickly is it forgotten ivhen. we run to lift up, somebody else, and begin to pelt him with: "Where did it hurt you?" ' <Are you hurt? 1 ' SPOKE HIS MIND. Grand Diiho VI»dlmlr CrlllcUed In HI* Own Vrewmpe. ATfifreshing story is told in the columns of the Frankfort Gazette: Th5 czar intrusted Count Tallinn, a liberal- minded man, with- an inquiry into the causes, of the terrible disaster at Moscow on the occasion of the coronation, and the count did not hesitate to tell his majesty, in the presence of Grand Duke Vladimir, that be would have done better not to put the superintendence of the coronation festivals into the hands of the grand duke. This frank-declaration staggered the emperor, who asked Count Pahlen to advance his reasons. The count answered: "The grand dukes are in their right place m th* army and navy, but if. they have to do with purveyors and purveyance they must be cheated" The. Grand Duke Vladimir protested against this but .smilingly-Count Paftlen reminded him of his own bad experience in connection with the building of the memorial church to Alexander II. In ronsoquenc* of thislfroik: nttfttideof .Count Pahlen. the minister of justice was, ordered to continue the inquiry.
