UK prettiest little girl In New York la Char
Charlotte was once a western girl, but
she went to New York from Chicago a year
ago, aim fur the last twelve months she
has been one In the hive of workers, nnd
she earns money as many a talented older
girl would be glad to earn It.
She Is a child model, ami her task Is that of posing In
the studios. Borne day she may go upon the stage Hut
at present she Is quite content to earn a handsome living
In the studios.
She Is a typical child of Illinois. She Is timid, yet well
poised. She speaks when she Is spoken to. She Is capa
ble, will Informed, bright, and alert. In her manner she
Is quick, and her smile Is sweet nnd sudden. Hut fihc Is
far from being spoiled.
Recently she posed for her picture she posed for the
pictures which adorn this page and when she had finished
she was handed a bill.
"What are you going to do with your money?" was
" I am going to pay brother's doctor bill with It," came
the reply, as quick a a wink.
" Do you like to earn money?" was the next question.
Then came the sudden flash of a smile.- " I love to earn
It. I give It to my mamma. She wants It."
How She CaresYor Skin.
In appearance this little womun Is a pronounced bru
nette. Her hair Is as black as night. It la glossy, and
it curls all over her head. To keep It In this condition
requires a full shampoo once a week, and to make It curl
It needs a dally wetting with a damp comb. It can then
be combed out Into deep waves, or It can be curled over
the finger. 1 Her skin is a deep olive. It is clear, soft, and
In texture It Is extremely fine.
To preserve the skin and keep It nice In spite of dally
nutlngs, rain, or shine, Is something of a task. But Miss
Charlotte, assisted by her mother, manages it well. She
washes her face every morning In hot water, and at night
she lathers It, afterwards washing off the soap. If the
water is hard she adds a little borax to It, and If the
water feels gritty to the face It Is made soft by the
addition of a little powdered oatmeal.
This little girl has several mottoes which might be
good for the little girl who Is not a model. The first of
these mottoes Is this: " Never look cross."
The second Is: " Never feel cross."
The third Is like unto these, for It Is, " Never be cross."
Keep yourself sunny In disposition, and you will look
better and feel better.
She says It Is necessary for a little girl or a big one,
either to observe these things:
Ti as you are told.
Don't get tired.
Don't say you can't, but try. ,
Don't get sleepy and out of patience.
Don't forget to smile. A pretty face without a smile id
not a pretty face at all.
Don't be careless of other people's money. Remember
that you are paid for doing certain tilings and do them.
Don't get careless.
Irving Lesson in Beauty.
Along beauty lines this little girl of 4 is a living lesson
to older girls.
Her hands always are exquisitely manicured. She
keeps them so, and if they are dusty she washes them
Immediately. After she has washed her hnnds she rubs
them together until they nre dry and warm. This is so
they will not chap and grow red. She keeps their circula
tion good by slapping them together. If they ore cold or
pale, or red, or spotted, she slaps them. This Is to make
them white and warm again.
Each day this little girl takes physical culture exer
cises. She knows that she will need a nice, supple figure.
If she should grow fat and awkward she could not pose.
So each day, when other little girls are out playing In the
street, this little girl is In the house taking her gymnastic
exercises. She bends and twists. Jumps and dances, turns
somersaults, and goes through with light dumbbell exer
cises. She keeps her muscles limber and her circulation
Eats Five Small Meals a Day.
The food which this little girl eats Is good. She takes
five meals a day, and two out of the three are meat meals.
Hut, of course, she does not eat a great deal of meat.
Two ordinary mouthful would suffice her. Tiie rest of her
meal consists of vegetables. She Is fond of cereals.
The mother of this little girl Is' a wise woman. "A
little child," she says, " cannot hold a great deal of food.
Ami a child should Im fed often and a little at a time.
Five meals a day are none too much for a little girl of 4."
And so this little girl Is fed In the middle of the morning
and In the middle of the afternoon. She gets a dish of
some kind of cereal nnd plenty of good milk.
To keep a little girl strong and healthy Is something
of a study. Hut CW H-tte seems to have puzzled It out.
"When I m cold and wet," she says, "I dsncs until
I get warm. When I am hungry I eat. Then I feel well
again. When I am tired I sit down a minute. Then I feel
rested. When I feel nervous I do a few exercises, and
then I feel all right again."
There are several rules which should be observed for
the health and beauty of any child. The first Is to give
It something to do. No child can play all day. There
should be some kind of a regular task. This will make tht
child beautiful as well as healthy.
A healthy child also should have something to occupy
Its mind. It can, In Japanese fashion, paste pictures on
the wall, or play with handsome embroideries, or train
the eye by doing a little light carving and painting.
The Httle girl who Is going to grow up to I a handsome
woman should know early how to take care of her beauty.
She should know how to keep her teeth nice. The first
teeth should be allowed to drop out; they never should be
drawn. Then the new teeth should be carefully attended
with the brush or with a soft cloth. A child should be
told not to use a tooth brush vigorously. Nothing so
Injures the teeth.
She should be taught not to make grimaces. The
little girl who pulls down one side of her mouth as a
child will be certain to do so as a woman.
The molding of the nose Is something for every child
to learn. If the little girl will pinch her nose, (driving
to keep It upright nnd slightly Grecian, she will be re
warded with a handsome nose one of these days. The
nose Is made of soft material, and by pinching It she
can keep It straight and noble In shape.
The mouth of the little girl is generally too large,
This can be remedied to a great extent by curving It and
shrinking It. To shrink a mouth try the habit of puckering
It a little; then lift the corners; then make the mouth
bow: then try to make It a little more expressive.
The skin of the little girl can be kept young by a little
massage. It should be ruhlw-d with the finger tips softly
and lightly. It should not tie touched unless It Is rough
or pimpled. Hut. at the tlrsl sign of trouble, there should
be a little cream molded Into it. The pure swiet cream I
best: and next to this comes sweet milk; then sour milk
and buttermilk. These are the best cosmetics known.
The hair must be washed once a we k. Hut not with
soap nor with any heavy shampoo mixture. It should be
gone over with a special shampoo, which is made by beat
ing an egg until It is foamy. A cup of tepid water Is then
added to it and a pinch of borax stirred In. With this the
hair Is wet thoroughly. Then It Is washed with plenty of
warm water. No soap is needed ordinarily.

ride the turtles hold In front of them a bunch of green food at the end of a stick, In
order to make the creatures, which are naturally sluggish, move.
