THE SECRET OF THE NEAT GIRL Wo all have among our acquain tances the girl, who, without being in the least good-looking, always man ages to look neat and well dressed. Perhaps site has only a small dress allowance, and whenever you happen to meei her she looks smart and at tractive, while -other girls with twice money nt their comiimiid too often look shabby and dowdy. Wl>at is the neat girl's secret? Noth ing more or less than taking care ol her clothes; she has a place for every thing, and everything is kept in its place, her ribbons, gloves, handker chiefs, veils, etc., are not all huddled together in one drawer, neither do they lie about on the tables and chairs until they are wanted. Every article of apparel is put away with the most scrupulous care, first being dusted, shaken or m.ended as the case may be. There is a great difference, too, in the' way in whjcb girls put on theii clothes, and very often a girl dress ed in a shirt-waist and plain skirt will look twice as neat...

FOR POSTPONING OLD AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Federal Standard — 31 July 1914
FOR POSTPONING OLD AGE. Discussing the question of longev ity, an old medical man remarked: 'There is a shrewd moral in tlu classic legend o£ the mortals who having appealed to the gods for a lifi ol a thousand years, and had theii petition granted, discovered to theii dismay that they had forgotten to asL that their youth should he likewisi prolonged. 'What men really want,' be contin ued, 'is to prolong their youth rathei than their life, for, after all, what is longevity as a rule but a prolongatior of the period of old age? The tru&lt; problem, then, is not. so much to ex lend life as to postpone old age.

WHAT DYSPEPTICS SHOULD KNOW. PHYSICIAN'S TIMELY ADVICE. The fact that fow dyspeptics really under stand (ho cftUHG of their troublo is probably tho reason why drugs are still used to such nn alarming oxtent. The practice is wrong, however, and is strongly condemned by many physicians.
