Impossible--yet suppose lie was? .. . That very day he switched to Life- buoy. Now he's a favorite with everybody---invited everywhere. "B.O." no longer robs him of popularity.

(Body Odor) Our sense of smell quickly becomes deadened to an ever-present odor. But it's only too apparent to others. Why, then, risk offending when it's so easy to be safe? Just wash and bathe with Lifebuoy. Its creamy, refreshing antiseptic lather penetrates pores so deeply, purifies so thoroughly that "B.O." completely vanishes. And how good you feel after a Lifebuoy bath-how gloriously fresh and clean! Keeps complexions radiant Lifebuoy is a marvelous complexion soap. Watch dull skins freshen--poor complexions glow with radiant health. Its pleasant extra-clean scent, that vanishes as you rinse, tells you Lifebuoy purifies. Get some today.

Ad iress Pattern Department, care The Bee A Model Wife is One Who is Jolly and Kind And Loving and Sympathetic and a Good Sport, Says Dorothy Dix, and Who Has So Many Imperfections of Her Own That It Makes Her Merciful to Her Husband's A correspondent aste m» to give my definition at a model wife. 'Well, son, there ain't no such a animal, and If you are on a stiff hunt lor I should advise you to abandon your search and waste no more time such a hopeless endeavor. The model wife is as much a legendary bird the phoenix. She probably never existed except in the imagti^tions and desires of men. At any rate, if there ever was such a creature ehe has completely vanished from the face of the earth and left not a chick behind her. for which \ o u should be profoundly thankful, for what would Impcrtect man do with a perfect wile? Think of what a standing reproach she would always be to lilm. Personally, I can lliiulc of nothing that would be more wearing on a man's nerves than to be married uomoii who was always right and whose own shortcomings he coold not throw in her teuth when she reproached him with his own faults and weaknesses. Jt is not the austere saints but the cheerful sinners who make comfortable daily companions. So that's that, and my idea of a model wile is not a woman "too bright _and good for human nature's dally food, as the old poem it, but a woman who is Just jolly and kind and loving ana sympathetic and a good sport and who has so many imperfections of her own that makes her merciful to her husbands. My model wife isn't a Patient Griselda nho stands for any sort treatment and makes a doormat of herself for lier family. If I were man I would have mighty little respect for a woman w h o had spirit than thai and more courage for a life partner and the mother or my children. My model wife has a. bit of temper, but she has it under control only gives way to it when there is an occasion for righteous wrath. She isn't always picking a quarrel or ready for an argument and bhe doesn't take it as a personal insult when her husband differs from her in point view. She doesnt have tantrums or go into hysterics or pass into the silence when she can't have her oa'n way about everything and her imsbad does not have to spend his evenings behind the protection of his newspaper because he is afraid that il he says a word he will start something. On the contrary, my model wife is filled with a sweet reasonableness that mokes it possible for her husband to talk everything oter her frely and not even to lie to lier w h e n he stavs downtown of evening to play poker or when he takes an old woman friend out to lunch. My model wife has a sense of humor that enables her to laugh off inevitable trials and tribulations of matrimony instead of mating tragedies of them She doesn't beat upon her breast and utter lamentations over her disappointment In finding out that the man she has married is not a. little tin god but just an ordinary, everyday sort of creature wish at, many blemishes in his character as he has hairs on his head. She Jusc makes a joke of his funny, fussy little ways and caters to them. My mode] wife plays the game. She gives her husband a run for his money. She figures out that a mail doesn't marry to get a wife who will poison him on bad cooking or who will keep him in debt her evtraiagance or to acquire a critic who will correct his grammar and pronunciation or reproach him because he doesn't make as much money as some other man does. So she makes her husband a comfortable and peaceful home. Like the womafi in the Scriptures, she looks well to the ways of her household- takes an Interest in his business and his plans. And she makes nlra feel that at all times he has a business partner upon whom he can depend, as well as a wife who wiU share ill fortune with him with as good a as she has good fortune. My model wife keeps herself attractive In mind and body. She does not co'iislder that a woman is giving a man. a square deal when after marriage she throws away the bait with which she caught him. She realizes that there is no magic In the marriage ceremony that keeps a in love uith a woman who is dull and stupid ami uninteresting to talk" to and who is slorealj and dowdy and unattractive to look at. o she makes tbe most of such brains and looks as heaven has given her and makes a conscientious effort to try to keep her husband beUering that he was a good picker when he selected her for a wife. My model wife drives her husband with a loose rein and lets him believe he is having his head. She is as polite to him as she Is to a man and as diplomatic in handling him as, she would be in dealing with a crotchety boss if she was a private secretary She is a good listener encores his pet stories She gives him the praise he hungers and thirsts for and she lets other people tell him of nib faults. And above all, she loves him. That's my Idea of a model wife. DOROTHY DES Captain-Elect Of University Team Expires UNIVERSITY.
