SELF-DENIAL Yv'EEK. Another Factor in the Great Work of the Salvation Army. Tho Salvation Array .stands foremost as a powerful spiritual and social factor amoug tbe Christian nations of the earth. With their characteristic energy and thoroughness they are extending year by year their work into territories as yet untouched, especially in heathen lands. They settle embarrassing financial questions by_ voluntarily depriving themselves not only of comforts, but even of necessaries, in what is known as the Week of SelfDenial.

Actresses Faint Their Faces. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 23 March 1900
Actresses Faint Their Faces. "It is a mistaken idea that actresses are as a general rule handsomer on the stage than off," writes Franklin Fylos, of "The Theatre and Its People," in the March Ladies' .Homo Journal. "Tho reverse is as likely to bo true. Nevertheless, all theatrical faces have to be painted. It may be assumed safely that none pf the complexion is genuine. An exceptionally clear and pink skin may require no falsity. A dark one may chitnce to suit the character to bo assumed. But these exceptions to tho rule are rare. The glare of artificial light would make most faces ghastly white or unpleasantly sallow if bright hues were not laid on. Tho art of coloring a pretty visage just enough, and not overdoing it, is one which all actresses should learn. Many do not, and so we see beauty disfigured instead of enh^ffppfl. Others are very expert. There are two distinct processes. One makes use of colored powders appliod dry. The other mixes the same powders with grease, making a...
