turesque phrase,' "polish your personality." She compares each self to a gem'ahd

HAVE you ever een a jeweler

must do for yourself. Polish your

That is what every woman Bhould
do for the gem which is herself.
The Jeweler holds the gem to the
, light to see what Is its best angle
and sets it so that that angled is
prominent. So should a woman do
with her best feature.
Study yourself in silhouette.
Place yourself before a mirror s6
that you can see yourself as one
would see you who hurriedly
brushed past you in the street. See
' yourself sldewlse. If you see that
you have a good profile And that
the lines of your figure are grace
ful, keep your side to the world,
so to speak. Remember that this
is your best line and live up to it.
Dress your hair co that it will en
hnce the profile, making It cameo
like. II vou discover a style of
; 'dressing your hair that is becom
ing to you, and that makes that
profile stand out in finer relief,
never mind whether It is the fash,
ion of today or of ten years ago.
Its beauty will be Us excuse and
will make it the fashion for you.
So in your gowning. If your figure
has a better ' silh6uette when
draped in full gathered and shirred
effects follow them. If, as is liable .
to be true if you have a full figure,
flat folds and tucks and hands are
more becoming, make abundant
use of them. .

It costs but little to dress well if
you can make your own clothes.
If you find that your front view Is
better, face the world, as it were,
Instead of turnrng your side to it.
I have heard of some women,
"Her hair grows prettily." When
have scrutinized meir ia
have found that what was meant
by the phrase was that it grew in
odd, attractive little ripples or
scallops about the face. Yet I have
seen the same women brushing
their hair flat and pressing it back
in a hard, straigh. line from their
faces. These human jewelers were
neglecting one of the best angles
or their personality. I have seen
women whose rich, thick hair was
their greatest charm draw back
the hair from their faces and twist
it up in a hard little knot. I wanted
to cry out against tbis thought
lessness. , 4 ,
I once overheard a pair talking
while in the first stages of love-
making on board a transatlantic
steamer. The man said, "You have
beautiful eyes, but you don't know
how to use them." The next day
as I saw her while on a deck prom
enade I saw that he was right. She
half covered them with heavy, laiy
looking lids. When she looked at
any one with them she looked with
a slow, steady regard and without'
a smile in them. If I had had eyes
like that I should have been most
industrious with them. I would
have opened them very wide, very
often every day. - It would -have il
lumlnated conversation, and pro
moted mutual understanding. And
I would have taught them the
pleasant trick of smiling.
I know a woman of whom it has
often been said: "She is handsome
when she smiles, but she hardly
ever smiles," and this should
have been enough of a tip, as you
say In America. Yet it! wasn't
Whenever I saw her her lips'

Beauty Questions Answered
Maud inquires: "Will you kindly
advise me if peroxide of hydrogen
will whiten a dark skin? If so, how
often a day can it be applied? Is
it necessary to first use cold cream
on the skin? If it is harmless and
can be applied with safety, how soon
will the change be noticeable?"
Peroxide of hydrogen is a general
bleach. Since its action is rather
harsh I would not advise its use.
Oftener than once a day. It should
be applied in the proportions of one
fourth or one-third peroxide to three
fourths or two-thirds of water. I

"Please tell me what to do for
blackheads ," writes M. B. S.
I consider the best method of re
moving blackheads is to scrub the
affected parts with warm water and
green soap, a liquid. When they
have been thoroughly softened by
this process press them gently out,
add afterwards rub vaseline or a
pure cold cream on the parts from
which they are removed, to heal the

the face. I use it every night, apply

The young man who writes this
and whose Initials are "F. E.," Is
right in his choice of a dentifrice.
Camphorated chalk is cleansing for
the teeth and tonic for the gums,
but I do not advise using ft so
often. Once a day, and that at
night, is often enough to use tooth
powder, for there are few powders
that do not more or less wear the

harder than teeth, a stone. Powv:
