The dull person may be a bore when
being normal, when chewing the cud,
as It were, quite unconscious of cow-
llke resemblance, but the dull person
convulsively endeavoring to bo witty,
smart, full of repartee and happy al­
lusion is Intolerably and altogether
maddening. 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.”

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
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.
