'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 wipe.lt 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.
