air and living on a more healthful diet
than the city woman, often looks fifty,
while the latter at the same age, does not
look more than thirty. But her mind, is
more active than that of her country sis

Nothing else siges one more rapidly than
monotony a dead level existence without
change of scene or experience. The mind
must be kept fresh or it will age. and the
body cannot be younger than the mind.
Few minds are strong enough to over
come tne aging influence of the monoton
ous life which rules in the average country
home. Ltity people have infinitely greater
variety of. life. They enjoy themselves
a great deal more than country people.
They work hard when at work, but when
they are through, they drop everything
and have a good time. There is no doubt
that the theatre, in spite of its many evils,
has done a great deal toward erasing the
marks of age. People who laugh much

Ha asked .the local manager about prices,
advertising and other points of information
which the agent is supposed to supply to
the manager of the troupe. Then he
asked him the dimensions of his stage.
"Have you any traps?" asked Mr.
Hermsen, meaning of course openings in
the stage, but the local manager misunder
stood. "Really," he replied, "we haven't had a
rat in the house for a year."

Mr. Hermsen asked the local manager
for what time the orchestra rehearsal had
been fixed.
"Four o'oiock if it rains, and six o'clock
if it doesn't rain," was the reply.
"How do you figure it out?" asked the
astonished agent.
"""Well, you see the leader of our orches

Lto Stay. W discovered that long ago.
It i only a question which typewriter, for
the word is well and truly used in the
singular sense.
The typewriter that has come to stay is
not the one of ten years back, when in
novation caused such a stir in business
circles. Then nobody ever thought of as
sociating the word "alignment" with a
typewriter; it satisfied the user so long as
the machine would write some fashion or
other, and. with constant break-downs
ever-present repair bills were paid smil
ingly. But things are different now.
Time tests all things. The business man
has become wise. He wants what he
pays for. He has learned the value (from
dearly-bought experience) of a machine
which will writ properly, not only the
day it is bought, but perpetually.
He also wants to be satisfied upon the
peculiarities of the many machine now
before the public. Th individual claim
of our product places its position beyond
all question, and the few particulars we
give on' the following pages will, no doubt
be found cf interest to those buyers who
"wartt what they pay for"
