Steps to Happiness
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX
Most of us' spend our lives in pur
suit of happiness. But she is com
pletely elusive, and when we think we
have gained her, we always find that
she lies somewhere beyond.
We all want superlative happiness
and happiness is only comparative.
We are happy as we give joy to oth
ers, fulfill our daily tasks, and work
toward a goal of achievement.
Real happiness lies in "amounting
to something" in this world. And
amounting to something means doing
our honest best with our own possi
bilities and helping other people real
ize theirs. -
An old-time philosopher has sug
gested steps to happiness. Here
they are: Accept Your Limitations.
Seize Your Opportunity. Enjoy the
Good of the Hour. Improve the Bad,
and if You Can't Let it Drop. - -
Let us examine these suggestions.
"Accept Your Limitations" means be
sane and logical about your possi
bilities. Don't exaggerate your , tal
ents and insist on flying when it is
hard tor you to do anything more
than walk. In other words, take stock
of yourself and make the best of
what you are and have it in you to
be. But don't refuse to sing well in
the chorus just because you aren't
able to be the prima donna.
"Seize Your Opportunity." That, of
course, means be awake and alert to
whatever chance offers you and make
the most of the , tiniest opening
through which it is possible to force
your way to success.
"Enjoy the Good of the Hour." Be
happy over the little things and don't
worry because they are not eternal.
No sunset was ever less beautiful be
cause it was foredoomed to fade and
joy and beauty have almost an added
charm because they are not perma
nent. Learn to find joy in little mo
mentary blessings. So you get a
happy tendency, a frame of mind that
makes for cheer. .
''Improve the Bad and it you Can't
Let it Drop." ' Don't sit idly by with
folded hands and accept unpleasant
circumstances. Do your best to over
come them your honest best. But
if you find that faith wilt not quite
move mountains but only show you
the way to toil over them, try to sur
If footsore and weary you have to
give up and retrace your path, be
cheerful- about that, too; Failure
bravely accepted is a sort of success.
After all these signposts to happi
ness only lead you on the path to
peace. Peace of mind is the greatest
happiness mortals can grasp and pos
sess. It comes from the knowledge
of duty well done, of work honestly
performed and of kindness and love
given to oiners.

How to Judge a
Woman by Her Hair
There are always the well-known
and semi-humorous methods, such as
saying brunettes are quick-tempered.
But there is real common sense in
just noticing whether the hair is well
kept to judge a woman's neatness.
If you are one of the few who try
to make the most of your hair, re
member that it is not advisable to
wash the hair with any cleanser made
for all purposes, but always use some
good preparation made expressly for
shampooing. You can enjoy the very
best bv eettine some canthrox from
your druggist and dissolving a tea
spoonful in a cup of hot water when
your shampoo is all ready. After its
use the hair dries rapidly ..with uni
