But the people who know her well ear
for her In spite of her over-modesty.
She. however, does not attract new ac
quaintances and la not generally populai
at dances or gatherings, where the girl
of Celeste's type makes a good' Impres
sion. Celeste attracts, but cannot hold,
for the conceitedly self-conscious girl Is a
horesomo and unlovable creature. She
tells f her conquests and her accom
pllshmrnts. Bhe boasts of her admirers
and her talents and she estranges the
people who might have appreciated her
very genuine talents if they had been al
low ed to discover them unaided.
A bore was once defined aa "a person
who talks about himself when I want to
talk about myself.' The girl who la al
ways talking about herself offends this
principle of human nature, and soon la
set down as a bore hy people who share
her fault In a lesser degree.
It antagonizes people to have e. girl
given to self-praise. It rouses the con

well pleased and satisfied with herself aa
fairly to dare their criticism.
Sweetness and modesty enhance a girl's
prettiness three-fold, and when a girl Is
always peeking at herself In mirrors and
contentedly patting the waves In her hair
she Invites a plrlt of criticism.
People avoid a girl who Is always harp
ing on herself. Hhe seems too self-centered
and selfish to have any admiration
or tmpathy to give them. In fact, aha
seems to have no Intereat to spare from
that vast store she la lavishing on her

her wearied listener.
Celeste attracts by her prettiness and

by harping on her own good points.
