This organisation was founded at Des
Moines, la., late In the summer of 1910 by
Clara Adella Lasetor-Lane, daughter of
Colonel and Mra. William n. Llselor
Iane. Inasmuch a it was the first or
ganisation Of the kind for girls in the
United States, it created great interest
from ' the first, and has been eagerly
watched by persons Interested in pro
moting the good of the girl.
The work embraces cooking, sowing,
housekeeping, first aid, nursing, nature
study and the doing of good turns. There
are out-door sports, of course, but these
are of such a nature that they will not
detract from the refinement or woman
liness of the girl. A strict ban Is put on
an lorms or rowayism.
The work Is destined to create a
revolution In drees, too, for the girl
scout may not lace. Not only that, but
they are asked to discard all forms of
artificiality, as rats, rogue, paint, powder,
false hair, pads and the numerous other
things that comprise such an important
part of the make-up of the woman to
day. Girl scout work provides" the moans of
learning the way to attain, and helps in
i attainment. It give the girl what she
needs to round out her life and make her
self-supporting. It doe not take her
from her home, but, rather, gives her
Interest that place a new phase on
home life and make It desirable.
The work Is conducted In a manner
similar to the boy scout work. Troops
are formed, consisting of one or more
patrols; each patrol consists of eight or
more girls, from 11 to IS years of age.
Troops meet at times and places deter
mined by themselves, for instruction.
They are under the direct supervision of
a suout master, who teaches the require
ment or secure some other person com
petent to do so.'
Honor are given for work well done
In any one line that will make the girl
rt-.i-uijijui iiiiu, wruie special honor are
given for werk in any line that will place
a girl in a position of trust and honor.
ino work started with one troop, and
trsw until now troops are organised or
in the process of organisation In twenty
two different states. Possibly one of the
greatest recommendatloiiM Which it Do.
eertts is the fact that a large number
of schools have arranged to give the
work, either entirely or In port, in their
acaools during the coming year. This
plan waa first adopted in the western
states, but lately has been taken up in
the east also.
A national council has charge of the
work. This council is composed of many

Not one girl In one score receives any

Her rich husband died and lert her
$10,000,000, a yacht, a country 'place, a
town house, three automobiles, all sorts
of diamond and pearls, and things, and
Khort sleeves, which have been so uni
versally worn for the last year or two,
have ruined our elbows and It's a painful
but frequent sight to behold two rough
and grayish Joints sticking out pointedly
through filmy lace sleeves.
The elbow fares very badly ariyhow. II
Is criticised for awkwardness and little
attention la paid to It until It Is almost
hopeless. However, there Is a way to
remedy the trouble, which will always
return unless more attention Is paid to
the elbows or we adopt long sleeves
again. ' '
In the first place, when bathing and
scrubbing the arm at night don't hold
your arm out stiff. This wrinkles up the
skin over the elbow and prevents you
from removing all the dust that Settles In
the creases. Bend the elbow and see that
you wash It very clarfully. Elbows that
are Just a little rough should be. rubbed
with a good cold cream or a little oil or
even sweet cream or sweet butter. Rub
this Into the skin after washing and dry.
Where the elbows present a queer gray
ish appearance, with skin very much
cracked, apply the cream before waahing.
Ilub a good quantity Into the akin. 1,m,.,
It absorb as much as It can. Leave It on
for a little while and then wash off with
warm water and a bland soap. Ky bland
soap I mean one that ha very little free
malt in It, You can always test soan
by touching1 it with the tongue. If it
stings and la very sharp to the tasta
don't use it oh your face and hands, for It
ha too much alkali euid I too strong fur
use even on cracked elbows.
When the elbows are very rough, with
4 good deal of loose dead skin which can
not be wsahed off, apply soap and water
and rub the elbow with a little Powdered
pumice stone. The pumice stone should
be wet and the elbow should bo well
oaped before It Is applied. Wash It off
thoroughly and rub a little cream over
the skin a an emollllent.
Bonp water and powdered pumice wiil
rub away any dead skin which so fre
quently snows on the arm In winter
time, and small pieces of pumice stone.
aUo wet and soaped, are used for rubbing
on the arm to destroy the down or hair
on them. It Is one of the siinnlnxt mot li.
oas oi getting rid of superfluous hair.
though, of course, the hair will com
back again, and only constant use will
completely subduo the growth.
A great many girls complain of havliik
very -thin forearms or thla upper arms
arid heavy forearms. This inharmoniouj
condition ia due to an over-developmrn
of one set of muscles and the correspond
ing Jack of development In the other set.
Housework develops the arms, and I see
It frequently recommended for that pur
pose. Arter all, every movement which
ooc-ur In ordinary housework has it pro
totype In some physical culture exercise.
Only when we do housework our mind
are usually on something els and we
are In a hurry to get through, and wheu
w are exercising, especially In a class
and are paying the Instructor we are usu
ally anxious to get cur money s worth
and gtod result. Therein lies the g:ea
omorenc. ou can turn every motion
that you have to make during the day
mm a proiuaoie movement for the exer
cise of the body.

you do It ttesX ctiwp.'ji 1 tccu'jf vlVirfi.
