The scee is Atlantic City, the
date July 18. the time late after
noon. Edna Wallace Hopper, the
famous exponent ot youth' and
beauty, is resting ; there from
strenuous season on the stage.
She had lost finished a two-
weeks' engagement In Philadel
phia, where women by the thou
sands had flocked to see ."the flap
per of 62." The crowds were so
great that no theater could; hold
them, -so a one-yeek engagement
had to be extended to two. Tliea-
er managers say that not In
years has. any stage attraction
proved so . popular aa this youth
and beauty demonstration.
She is scheduled to appear in
New York; about September 13,
with an act which portrays youth
extension and beauty. She will
exhibit herself as evidence that
women never need grow old. She
will show on the stage all the
methods that she uses.
She has earned a rest. But that
late afternoon brings New York
papers announcing that Dr. Steln-
ach of Vienna haa found ney ways
to youth extension. And that Paris
has discovered some new beauty
helps which excel any helps of the
So Edna Wallace Hopper start
ed at once for New York. At mid
night that night she sailed on the
S. S. Homeric to look up those
new discoveries. Within nine
hours after reading about them
she was on the way to find them.
That is : how Mias Hopper has
become the greatest exponent of
youth and beauty in the public
eye today.; She has already' made
thirty-three trips to Europe, and
has spent ' nine years in France.
And yet when a new beauty aid Is
discovered she leaves on two
As she sailed at midnight she
flashed back this me sage to wom
en: "Fbr over 40 years I have
been proving to you that beauty
can be multiplied. For many years
I have been showing you, on
countless stages, how youth can
be extended. Now I am going to
find and bring back to you all
the newer and better ways. When
I come back I shall demonstrate
them to you on every stage where
I appear. And I shall write ar
ticles next winter for a thousand
newspapers and magazine to tell
you about them In print."
was seizing the opportunity to
give him something to think
about besides the : unfortunate
reference ' to his - grandmother
which his tenacious little mind
was treasuring up.
The question evidently- recalled
to his mind a game I recently had
played with him, for he looked
earnestly out of the window 'for
a minute, then closed his eye
and waving hlj arm around vig
orously began to chant.
"See house, chimney, smoke,
fence, dog, horses, man-."
: His voice raa dowa like a spent
top and he opened 'his eyee' pa
tiently awaiting applause from
his audience. Katherine and I
clapped our hands vigorously,
while Junior beamed.
"Take your bow. Junior,"
Katherine commanded, and when
the little lad looked at her with
puzzled eyes, she swept him up
into her arms rapturously.
Relaying the Telegram
"You are the . most adorable
thing on earth. Junior," she an
nounced, kissing him, but after
kissing her back, he wriggled to
be set down.
"Wanna see more finga," he
announced, as he ran back to the

say we were fostering the love of

"I suppose so,? she agreed.
"but I wouldn't lose any sleep
over it. Did you ever know any
one who didn't work for applause
'phone me if you want me.
"Thank you. I'll remember,"
he answered, and then I had said
goodbye and realized with a ;little
sigh ot relief that the arrange
ments for Mrs. Durkee's opera
tion were now out ot my hands.

that 1 could not help trying them and am
very happy I did." o writes Mr. Frank J.

EVERY good, sailing master engages a pilot to steer his
. vessel safely into port. The pilot knows the channel.
He knows where to go and what to do to avoid danger and
make a safe landing. !
, Vhen you set sail on;a shopping tour you, too, should
have a pilot. Everybody needs one. And well-informed
shoppers always have one- advertising.
Advertising keeps you off the rocks of extravagance
and waste. It takes you straight into the port of economy.
It tells you plainly where to go for what you want. It
shows you how to save steps-j and money and time.
By watching if carefully, each day, you are able to buy
to best advantage.
i i ...
Often, the advertisements will keep you from making
an unwise purchase by pointing out just why one article
suits you better, than ari other. j It, points out for you the
pick of the country's market and the selection of the par
ticular kind, shape, size and color that best suits your taste
and fits your pocketbook.
i " - . j
Whether you want food, clothing, furniture or a toy
for the children, the advertisements can help you.
Let advertising itccr your steps
