Many smart American women are what they are by tho grace of nature, the exertions of the exclu sive modistes uud the education of brilliant society. Others are what they are by the grace of nature and are most charming and least dull whim most natural. There Is a genuine at traction In simplicity and sincerity even when these qualities are not al lied with remarkable wit or buoyed up by exceptional gayety. The mo ment when we are liable to become a curse to ourselves and others is the moment when we begin to try to play a part. Oh, what a joy It is In society and often In the home to come across a perfectly natural woman! How she refreshes you! How she sets you at your ease! I am not especially fond of tine needlework or addicted to fancy knitting, but 1 remember to this hour a delightful talk I once had nt a dinner party with a denr old lady given over tt> these two Innocent pursuits, who was artless enough to assume that I shared her sense of their importance. And so I did while she was telling me abotit them. Some time ago I read a clever article attacking people for smiling too much and begging them not to smile unless there was something to smile nt. My advice to them would bo never to force a smile, but never to check a smile that was coming naturally. He natural. All this advice to do and not to do tends to the fostering of self consciousness, and self consciousness Is a hideous thing. As with smiling, so with dullness. To a certain extent natural dullness can be minimized. The heavy person can throw out a bag or two of sand anil render the brain balloon a little lighter, capable of soaring some feet higher. For instance, she can educate herself. She can read, see, do and so nssert her self. But do not, for heaven’s sake, let her emulate the "verve” of some stren uous uml sparkling creature made by nature as unlike her as the diamond Is unlike the pearl. In being Imitative most people be come actively tiresome. It Is better to be a sedative than nn Irritant, to re semble the hop pillow than adulterated cayenne pepper. Our age Is full of voices telling us to do this nnu do that, be this and be that. I should reply to them. "I’m go ing to be myself.” It. IIICHENS.

The hand cream separator has done more toward modernizing this indus try than any other influence. With in the last three years the hand separator has com e to be more of a fixture in the dairy farmhouse than the sewing machine. The separa tor is here to stay, and the possibili ties it has created for this region in the way of dairy development are immense. The one point above all others that makes the hand separator so effective is the fact that the warm milk can be fed to calves, while the cream— chief source of revenue — can be shipped in first class con dition to bring the highest prices now being paid for butter fat. Adds Value to F a rm Thousands of dollars will be add ed to the value of each good dairy farm in this region during the next ten or twenty years, and it will be the hand cream separator which will do it, If the hand separator makes it possible for you to sell $500 or $1,000 worth of cream from a herd of eight or ten cows during the year, and enables you to raise calves which you can market for as high a price as what you got for your calves before, is it not increasing the value of your farm? The hand separator conquers bad road conditions, makes it possible to get the most money from crops, simplifies dairying, abolishes the wearisome churn, improves the quality of the product, pays for it self in what it saves, and, if a high grade one, lasts year in and year out as a permanent labor-saving fixture.
