Lesson I Piirt II.
If you live In the country, where you
can get clean rain water, by all means
bottle It and save it for faco washing.
If this Is not .practical BOttcn the ordi
nary T.-ater with a pinch of borax It you
have a reason to think it is at all hard.
Ab a woman gets older the akin needs
more and more care, tor nature In loss
active In renewing it and throwing oft
impurities. There is also apt to be a
laclc ot natuira oil, and this is why
women, as years go on, need to use
creams ot some sort and to refrain from
the use ot soap. Skin that la allowed to
become dry wrinkles easily; it Is far
caster to prevent wrinkles than it is,, to"
cure them and thfe first step in prevent-'
ins them is not 'to allow the skin to be
come dry. ;"
There is no question as to the necessity
of toilet creams)- the only Question is,
what kind? (This depends on th'eskln and
the purpose-or-whlch the creatmis to be
used. As a. substitute for soap, a cleans
ing cream is necessary. This may, ,be a
soft ointment or a llqufa, but It' shduld
be absolutely- tree from, harmful ingred
ients, such as mineral oils and preserva
tives, and should. -be-soft enough-to be
rubbed freely oVer the skin . without
causing any friction. A cleansing cream
will keep the faco clean, soft and well
lubricated and its use- will do much to
prevent wrinkles, 'sunburn, freckles, and
roughness, but it contains no healing
properties, neither does' It fatten nor feed
A very young face, as a, rule, does not
need massage, but as ax- woman ap

times "younger, tho fatty tissue beneath

It Is then- that 'we resort to massage,
which means tho proper manipulation of
the face so as to strengthen the muscles

subject."" The akin- can only be fed In
two ways-by means "ot the blood -knd

this jve must uioi with the massage
movements a proper massage cream.
There are only a few fats that the skin
can absorb, and a Bkln food therefore
must contain such fats if It is to be of
any use in removing tho wrinkles. A
proper massage cream or skin food, a
wrlnkje paste, as it is sometimes called,
Is much thicker than a cleansing cream:
It is apt to be more expensive, but it
need not be so frocely used, and a small

Irarely, perhaps never, but it Is wise to
understand 'the different face creams and

Recently I told you about tho fellows and girls tobogganing in
enow-tlmo in Canada how they took the long Ice trail down tho moun
tain In 'one express tralu minute and trudged tho long mile back up
the steep country and mountainside. I told you how the sloe-eyed
Oriental in the clubhouse eyed their scarlet-and-white figures first
speeding by like falling stars and then piking back up again like crawl
ing tortoise. How he eyed them scornfully and dubbed tho whole af
fair the long, ardent tramp up-mountain so they might flash over tho
same trail like a flame, the crackling! arrow-liko Instant of cctaoy, and
the patient, snail-pace struggle back tho "whlzand walk a mile!"
That's one ,klnd tho good kind. Whore, in spite of the Chinee's
mocking, the Flight is worth tho Pike. In this there is nothing of
blame, of sorrow nor of suffering; Just youth and laughter and wind

Just as ho is about to hang himself a

Intuitively grasping the essential fact

The constable stepped back Into the
paved court. A rapid twist of his hand
sent a vivid beam of light dancing over
ruined tenements, disheveled doorways
and shattered windows.
"A tall man," said Philip, "taller than
you, for I could seo his chin, over the
string of the curtain. He had a big, faco,
with eyes that stuck out boldly"
"By tho Lord, it's Jocky right enough!"
cried the constable. "Now, where can ho

his breath. .
"Won't you wait a bit until 1 get some

Tho man appeared to debate tho point.

The policeman, feeling for the loose
strap of his truncheon, commenced a
careful survey of the mews. He had not
gone five yards when there was a loud
crash of broken glass. The building at
tie other end of the yard possessed a
coupla, of windows facing into another
lnclosuro at the back. Obviously, the
broken-nosed "Jocky," unseen himself,
had observed the constable's movements.

he was effecting a strategic movement
