A well-known beauty- specialist hss

seum t are a pair -. of shoes, glove's, a

tells . Its story - so plainly that ' one
doesn't .have to put two and two to
gether to decide why the beauty spe
cialist put such stress on their worth
as frlenda ' . - . '
. The shoes are run over at the heel,
and have sides that bulge ever the eole,

cuffs that are out of ahapa, and the
hat, , while a very . nice looking article
of headgear. Is unbearably heavy. '
' The misfit mania, according to the
enterprising beauty specialist, has the
greatest - faaclnatlon for numbers v of
women, therefore she has stsrted her
museum In order to show them how and
where their wrinkles originate.
"It must be. because so msny, women
are always' In - a . hurry." she said,

and buy things that realty fit them In

Many women are continually com
plaining of the discourtesy of sales
people and the "don't cars whether-you
buy or not", attitude of moat of them.
If you aak such a woman what time

shopping she will Invariably reply; "Oh,
any time in . the tnte . afternoon; 'you
