The advice given some 2,000 years
ago about fasting not to disfigure
your face when you fast, but to
anoint it, is still good advice.
It will avail you little to make your
figure slim and your face flabby. That
is one of the reasons your doctor
will advise you against exercising on
your days of greatest abstinence. You
must not let fatigue lines get into
your face. Watch it, massage it, use
plenty of cold cream, freshen it with
a bit of ice and refresh yourself with
a long sleep. Margaretta Tuttle in

Intolerance causes a large amount
of the unhappiness in this world.
Since your fiance has been honest
with you and the affair is a matter of
years ago, is it not possible to for

the laxity of this world's standards in
regard to masculine morals but one
has to accept the conditions of life
as they are. After all, none of us has
a right to judge anyone else, 'f his
misdeed did not spoil another girl s

Looking for Trouble
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
If you are one of those foolish
souls who look (or trouble, make
up your mind at once to right about
face and look m the opposite direction
from now on.
It is a good thing to remember
that almost everything reaches its
greatest value in anticipation
pleasure and trouble alike, pain and
delight as well.
Worrying about things doesn't
make them one bit easier to bear
but instead weakens one's powers
of endurance and means that a cer
tain amount of energy which ought
to be expended in the actual meet
ing of a situation has been wasted
in planning how to meet it.
The troubles for which one looks
very often fail to arrive but in their
stead come others which it takes all
of one's strength to bear at the mo
ment of their coming. Isn't it
tragically foolish then that one bit
of strength and force should have
been wasted in imagining how one
would endure an unpleasant set of
situations which one never had to
The girl who is doomed to spend
her summer in the city is very
likely to wonder with self pity how
she is going to get through the
long, hot, lonely days and the sultry
uneventful evenings. Then perhaps
a cold, rainy summer arrives where
she has to endure an entirely differ
ent set of conditions from the one
about which she was worrying.
It is a good idea to remember
that nothing is very serious and
that we give things a value and im
portance hopelessly beyond their ac
In looking back over the events of
last month who does not smile at
something which then seemed -very
agonizing? Perspective changes the
appearance of things greatly. An
emotional nature exaggerates things
frightfully at the actual time of their
happening. The poised and balanced
nature doesn't make the blunder of
taking its own pleasures or its own
sorrows too seriously. It knows that
nothing lasts but life is change and
flux and alterations.
Since this is so, why agonize over
something today which doesn't seem
very important tomorrow, specially
so since you only wear yourself out
and leave yourself unable to contend
with tomorrow's situation?
None of us has any more than just
a certain amount of vital energy at
a given moment. What's the use of
borrowing tomorrow's store in order
to meet today's events? What is the
use of running to meet trouble half
way when trouble would probably ar
rive soon enough without invitation
Mercifully we all have it. within
us to forget. Wounds heal. Mem
ory shrouds pain with a kindly mist
of time. The sane person does not
anticipate too much of joy or too
much of sorrow. But he remebers
both with a wise and tolerant smile
rather than with feelings either of
ecstacy or agony.
MANY months lie slumbering between our
August sun and the fresh, sweet days of the
coming June. Yet one close to nature's heart
can already feel the promise of those rare mornings,
of the cool, crisp nights and living breezes.
If your head throbs a bit with the heat, you can
hear the silver voices of tiny bells the wedding bells
of June. A quick breath of mountain air that has
caught a wildflower fragrance suddenly thrills you
with its promise. '
And on almost any beach you can see happy cou
ples whose faces are silhouetted against a dainty
parasol. And the shadow you see, is it not prophetic
of a wedding this next June? STELLA FLORES.
In Praise of Farming
By GARRETT P. 8ERVISS.
If, like many young men whose
requests for advice I read, I stood
in the morning of life, but possessed
of the experience that, in its even
ing, illuminates, like a sunset, the
road behind, I think that I should
choose agriculture for my vocation. I
was born among farmers, and farm
ers who have never left their fields
are among my most faithful and
most admired friends. So I can
speak with knowledge of farm life.
There never has been a time in the
history of our country valien such
speaking was more needed.
One of the gravest errors that can
enter the minds of young people is
the widespread belief that farm life
and farm work are incompatible with
the best development of the social
and intellectual qualities of men and
women. It 1 did not know that that
is untrue I should not have made
such a statement as the one with
which I began this writing. I would
shrinlewith horror from any occu
pation that shut me off from mental
exercise, books, study of nature and
of man, converse with intelligent
fellow creatures and social enjoy
ment. Life on the farm does not
shut off any of these things, while
to some of them it gives double
Many of the most successful
young farmers now are "college
men. Their preliminary intellectual
training equals that of lawyers, doc
tors, bankers, and merchants in the
cities, and no more than these are
they prevented by their work from
pursuing the intellectual avocations
which every well-endowed mind
should have in addition to the voca
tion which is the main stem of life.
It is through these avocations,
these "side issues," that half, and
sometimes much more than half, of
a man's influence over his fellows,
and upon his times, is exercised. The
vocation is the trunk of the tree,
which establishes it in it place and
give it individuality and stability;
the avocations are the branches and
the leaves, the flowers and fruits,
which are useful and pleasant to
others as well to itself.
Now, for some concrete examples
among farmers. I know a man,
eighty-five years of , age, whose formal
education was obtained within the
walls of a "district school," who had
never been off the farm, except for
occasional visits to towns and cities,
who, in his sctive years, exercised
the industry and frugality that are
necessary in every occupation and
that never fail to insure the acquire
ment of independence, and who now
is one of the wisest men of my" ac
quaintance. v He is abreat of the times. If he has
not read novels, he has read news
papers and solid books. He has not
neglected his winters, when farming
is p'ay. Last summer I got from
him in a few vernacular sentences
sounder judgments on the European
war and on our own political affairs
than 1 have heard from anybody else.
He has never had any vocation but
that of a farmer, yet he is as truly
in touch with all the world as the
best-informed city man that I know.
If he had gone to the city; when
young he would have become a rich
merchant or a successful lawyer, and
would probably have died and been
forgotten years ago. But on the
farms people live longer and are re
He. at least, bids fair for ten years
yet to enjoy the aroma of the same
dewy hayfields that he mowed when
a boy, and to listen to the tinkling
music of the same bob-o-links that
then entranced his ears at sunrise.
Has he lost anything by staying in
the country among the green hills
within sound of the romantic Scho
harie roaring down its rapids and
scooping out cool deep pools for fish
in the lee of its huge boulders?
And now, a more modern instance.
In that same land, which the red
Iroquois loved for its beauty and its
gifts, I know a young farmer, de
scended from a line of farmers, a
university graduate, instilled with the
knowledge of scientific agriculture,
armed with the best and most in
genious implements and accessories
that invention, aided by steam and
electricity, can furnish, whose farm
is as instructive and interesting as
any shop or factory-or store in exist
ence, and where the visitor feels that,
far from having left the world behind
him and plunged into a side current of
existence, he has rather found a cen
ter of life, society, and intelligence of
the most refreshing and inspiring
His wife is also a college graduate,
a woman of beauty, cultivation, re
fined tastes, wide reading. They have
their automobiles,' their telephones,
their instrumental music,-their news
papers, books and social relations. To
converse with them is a privilege and
a pleasure. Their children live in the
free, fresh air, and are sent to schools
where the "advantages," I suspect, are
greater than in the great city schools.
They would not exchange farming for
any vocation that you could offer
them. Farming is working with na
ture. It came in with Adam and it
keeps Adam's descendants as close to
paradise as man can get.
