II V ti ll V UKULYS. ,
One of the readers of my ankks Is
not content because, she Bays,, that it Is a
simile thing for'ine to be young and
pretty when nature made me so and
when I spend all the money 1 need on ex
pensive frocks to make me s;ill prettier.
'Wait till you are over 4D." Hhe writes,
"then you will know how hard It Is to
look pretty, especially If you haven't a
lot of money to spend on yourself."
My good friend, I say to her, I expect
to he pretty at 40, at least, If I am n it.
it won't be for the lack of trying. Ueing
pretty "when you nre yoiing is not a r.reat
virtue, since, as my Irate corresiioiident
remarks, you haven't yourslf to thunk
for It; but as you grow older It is neces
sary to use more Intelligence, more cure,
more patience, and to study yourself
quite Impersonally.
"I do not know why my correspondent
writes of 40 years as old. Evidently she
thinks herself as old, which Is a dreadful
thing to do, because It should be Just the
prime of life, and la beginning to b? re
garded so by Intelligent people. How
ever, since she thinkH It is a hoary old
age, I will take her attitude, and tell her
what I will do when I am over 40.
Long before I am 40 I shall begin to!
forestall old Father Time by every means
in my power. I shall criticise my lace
as If It wero someone else'B, without any
more prejudice or sympathy. I shall say
to myself. "Little Gaby, you are not Js
young as you were, and you must be
careful. .You vued to bo ableNo stay up
late and not look any the worse for It
the next morning, but now you must get
to bod earlier, or make up for lost sleep
In the daytime, even If you. have to go
without makhiK calls, or going out for
tea. And speaking of tea, Y doubt If It Is
guod for you now, for I notice that rich
foi d. and too much of It. hurrns a wemon
of your years while It did not trouble the
avlrt of 30.. . '
When I am 50 Ishall not. try to dress
like an riifrenuo. ..jC'othins rmikps one look
co old as to dress too youiiB, . though I
notice that many women do It In the be
lief thut they are subtrartinx from their
years. No, indeed, whin 1 am jfl I shall
JiesH u little bit older than I am, then
people will say. -'Why, i-he Is still a
young woman. Why rhould she dress so
old'." Is It not-better that they should
say that than that they should remark
behind my back, 'Dear me, there Is thai
old thing trying to look like a young
girl." I shall dress with Great care. My
frocks will be simple, but all the acces
sories will be the daintiest and prettiest
1 can afford, and 1 shall wear little, caps
of tho olden time, and llttlo fichus and
plcture(ue little trifles which rightfully
belong to the older woman but which
have fallen Into the hands of young girls
ti whom they do not rightfully belong,
except as a kind of charming masquerade.
Before my fortieth birthday I shall
have studied myself carefully enough to
know Into what lines my face Is settling.
Kit I don't like the lines I will change
them. If 1 find that I have acquired a
frown I will learn to control my expres
sion, not tf) say my temper, and If I have
a deep frown I shnll out If I
have to go around all dny wit h adhesive
plaster on my face. Y'ou know. If you
have a wrinkle between tho eyes and
smooth It out with your fingern and then
put stiff, adhesive plaster over It, you
won't be able to frown while you wear
the plaster, and you can break yourself
of the habit In time. i
' I am taking care of my hair, my figure
and my face right now, so that when I
get to the .venerable ago of 40, which,"
according to mv correspondent, seems to
be the Jumplng-off place for youth and
beauty, I shall retain some semblance
and good looks- at least, I hope so. '
