THERE is an appalling ignorance of, coupled with an equal in
difference to food values, Most persons eat whatever they
want and as much as they want, without the slightest
: thought of whether they are putting into the body that which will
nourish and rebuild, instead of clog and destroy it
Mme. Cavalieri's article gives va'uable advice as to how to
check overeating and gives valuable recipes for semi-fluid or fluid
foods at a time when the stomach is resting from too heavy feed
ing. The article may be read with profit.

to health and beauty is too great

Beauty Questions Answered
M. S. complains of a red nose,
scant hair, rough red, hands, and
thin yellow face. M. S. was cer
tainly not looking her best when
she wrote that letter. If your nose
Is red, your hands ditto and your
face yellow, your circulation must
be poor and you would do well to
visit a physician and let him pre
scribe a different manner of living.
Your scant hair leads me to think,
too, that you are anaemic and your
body needs rebuilding. The physi

him by giving more Intelligent care

L. W. L. asks whether there Is
any remedy guaranteed to remove
superfluous hairs from the face and
keep them off. '
No, I have repeatedly said that
there is ho certainty that the hair
will not grow again, for even elec
trolysis has failed In some cases.
But it 'Is. successful In-, more cases
than any, other treatment has been.
As you say, there Is danger if In
experienced or unreliable persons
attempt It. Be sure that the opera

And then belt and : coat removed
there is revealed (for indoor cr
luncheon wear) the whole beautiful
color of the high corseted skirt of
royal blue cloth and the mellow
toned softness of a complete and
charming blouse of the lawn.
And now, how do you like these
latest and smartest aspects of the
coat and skirt costume, r.nd ' '
will you decide to wear, I wonder?
There Ib at any rate sufficient va-
i ieijr tor every one or you to De well
suited, ' and not one in which you
cannot look specially and satisfy
ingly smart. '
In the matter of millinery, "bean
stalk" trimmings are in great vogue,
but you may see and wear if you
will other hats, whose adornments
are absolutely flat instead of up
standing, one quaint model which I
have in mind being again - of the
black pelad straw, which is as dur
able as it is fashionable, and having
a wide brim, of somewhat "mush
room" tendencies, allied to a rather
low-domed crown. And round this
are set a number of little tangerines
. most realistically copied in orangt
hued and closely clipped wooi,'?whlic
set, in the front is a. big ornament
formed of a central and paler-hued
lemon, encircled with the little,
brightly hued tangerines.
It is amusing to note, ' too, that
this same passion for extremes is
, even affecting the little bouquets
which are the fashionable and fas
cinating wear with all kinds of cos
tumes and dresses just now. , For
while there are many of flat cabochon
, formation, with, perhaps, a centre.of
pink moss-rose buds set. round with
a broad band of forget-me-nots, and
then again with closely clustered
"cherry pie" and a star-shaped edb
ing of green leaves there are also
being shown now some tall bouquets
of flowers, which are miniature "re
productions of the "beanstalk" hat
trimmings, and which are intended to
be fastened at the - waistband, in-'
Btead of higher up on the corsage, as
are those flat cabochons. There
will be. some fresh green leaves to
form a base the . stalks are s not
shown at all, yon must know and
then half a dozen pink roses will be
massed together beneath a tapering
cluster of forget-me-nots, in' the very
centre of which will be set one half
opened pink rose. The whole-thing
is both quaint and pretty, and though

"I am a boy of fourteen," writes
"Unfortunate," "and , am forced to
shave on account of a large growth
of hair on my face. Will ybu please
let me know how I can prevent this
. growth of hair?".
Peroxide of hydrogen will bleach
the hair so that It will be less con
spicuous In color. But there Is no
remedy In your case for the growth
of hair.
Make the best of it. - In a few'
abort years you will not regard It as
an affliction. It is not very uncom
