Save Your Eyes
The time-honored saying that ws seldom
hold out poseaslons at their full value
until we are In danger of losing them Is
never more true than when we refer to
the blessing of good eyesight. It Is through
the avenue of sight that most Impressions
reach our brain, and when we lose It we
are "shut In the dark," cut off from our
fellows by a deprivation of which only ths
totally blind can understand the magni
tude. Our eyes are all Important to us,
and should be guarded more carefully than
the most precious Jewels that ever came
Into mortal possession.
Yet how often we see girls doing their
best to ruin their eyes. They have often
heard that reading In trains and omni
buses Is one of the worst things that they
can do, but one cannot take the shortest
Journey without noticing that about four
women out of every ten are trying their
eyes by poring over some paper of novel
ette, which Is Jerked aside every pther
moment by the Jar or vibration of the car.
Apart from the constant movement and
consequent change of focus for the eyes,
the light Is often very bad, and the head
aches of which so many girls complain
are frequently due to eye strain from this
cause, and to nothing else.
It Is not while they are stilt In ths twen
ties that they are most likely to suffer for
their Indiscretion, but wait awhlls, and
nature will be revenged, says Home Notes.
For every hour they have misused their
eyes, thoBe faithful servants of theirs that
did their bidding for years so uncomplain
ingly, they will pay a heavy toll, and the
"falling sight" that Is so often the trouble
of middle life will hamper their useful
ness and spoil their pleasure.

Exercise Waist Muscles to Keep Strong
However successful stays may be In giv
ing a woman the correct figure now, she
must make provision for the future, for
If she is stout and flesh is compressed
under strong stays she later may find
that the compression may cause muscles
and cords to lose their natural elasticity
and power to hold the weight of flesh, and
should this happen a woman would rue
the day when fashion changes, as It al
ways does, and another shape Is required
for her gowns.
To obviate suob possibility exercising a
litii-. without stays will do no harm, and
perhaps may do a great deal of good In
that it will keep the body In muscular
condition, and the more the muscles are
able to do what Is required of them the
It stands to reason that If they are never
used, and much of the time are compressed
under tight stays, they will grow flabby,
and with a woman of middle age once this
happens it Is almost Impossible to over
come. Ten minutes given In the morning to
muscular work, before putting on stays,
is certainly worth trying. An excellent
movement Is to try to bend from th waist,
going low, whll keeping the knees
straight. Under no circumstances ar th
knees to bend, for then there is no work
done by the hips. Bending over front,
back and sldewlse is limbering.
Any woman who ha seen skirt dancing
will understand that the beautiful posing
of the dancer is done entirely from the
waist line, and the flexibility of muscles
there enables the dancer to be graceful,
and at the same time It keeps her slender.

Women, untrained in physical cultur do

Eoom is Pretty
Both aets of curtains 'should be run on
small brass rods and should not hang be
low the window sills. " They are - to be
draped back or not, as wished. A valance
on them Is optional.
If a woman Is fortunate enough to own
brasses and china which are pretty she
should put these rather than pictures in
tha dining room walls.
To light the room by candles In brans
sconces on different walls Is not as ex
pensive as it may eeem, for the branches
are comparatively Inexpensive, and can
dles, If not wastefully burned, are cheap.
If the china used is delft It must be
given a background or It will be lost In the
blue and white of the Walla. The same
blue that Is used In the curtain may be
tacked flat on the walls behind the plates,
leaving Just enough of the material to
make a border for the china.
Plate racks, of course, may be used, but
they are commonplace, and only when
costly have they distinction.
The prettiest chain for such a dining
room are those of white with tiny blue
pictures painted on " the backs. There
hould be blue lines throughout the rest of
