Wkjr Plain Men Attract.
A fact that no one can deny is that
for some women a really plain man
seems to have a definite power of at
traction. Can It bo that. If beautiful
themselves, they And a charm In their
opposite; or is it that they brook no
rival near the throne, and see in a
handsome man more or less of a com
petitor? asks Mrs. Fltzroy Stewaart in
The Srtand. A good looking husband or
brother attracts notice, and her royal
highness, woman, may refuse to be
in the background. At any rate, there
can be no doubt that an ugly man
seems often to wield an influence that
Is quite uncanny.
The trend of the times may have
something to say on the subject. A
modern woman, with her brains and
fcer freedom and her strenuous Ideals,
has no use for what Is weak, insipid,
and decadent. She has no place in her
heart for the scented exquisite, who
waves his hair, twists his mustache,
manicures his hands, and admires his
face in the looking glass. In fact,
pink and white prettlness is now at a
discount, nnd moat cf us votiM soon
er see our men brown and battered
and serenely conscious of their own
lack of attractions. Rough-hewn, fea
tures, we say, show strength, and a
plain form may be the shell of a
great soul, a keen brain, and souring
ambitions. Certain It is that the
Adonis type has gone out of fashion.
The woman of to-day scorns the
"beauty man," avoids him as a friend,
and disregards him as a husband.

There are women who are so sea

Here is a hint which will make the
In threading a needle hold the
needle firmly between thumb and first
finger. The thread is held in the left
hand with a short end extending

the two thumb joints hard together,

found to go easily into the eye.

"I have discovered an easy way of
making hand-run tucks in lingerie,"
said a seamstress. "Crease the first
tuck as usual for machine tucking and
adjust the tucks, but do not thread
the machine. Then run through the
tucker. The needle will leave a dis
tinct line, along which to run your
hand sewing. The marker also leaves
a line for the next tuck. It is best
to sew each tuck as it comes from the
tucker, as handling obliterates the

The buyer of one of the largest

Right and Wrong Walking.
Women who desire to appear at

effect of a beautiful gown Is often
ruined by the wearer's unsightly
stride. It requires no scientist to dis

observer is at once conscious of some

Good health is partly dependent
