DON'T DROP YOUR FKIBNDS. Don't drop your friends because you have married "the dearSst boy in the world." No two people are "suffieent for themselves," and it is very narrowing and dwarfing to cut oneself off from intercourse with the outside world. Remember that love is rather like a pair of boota. The latter last many times as long if worn alternately with others. And there is a chance that love may last indefi- nitely if it is not worn too threadbare at the beginning. DBLICATE HANDS. Those who wish to have delicate hands must never hold them over the fire nor expose them in strong wind or rain, while it will be fatal to your chance of beauty to attempt to dry them by the fire if they are at all damp. Fine hands that tan and freckle can be made white and spotless by first fomenting them with a white bran poultice and then washing them in lime water or in the juice of fresh lemons. Another very good way (for those who have the time) to keep the hands white, is to bathe them three times a day in hot milk and water for several successive days, put pomade on them at night, and wear gloves during the day. THB IMPORTANCE OF HEALTH. The value of health to the individual- say, for example, to the father of a family who is the breadwinner for wife and children —is recognised by all, but it may not be so generally realised that the length of life of all active members of the community consti- tutes a national asset of great pecuniary value, as it directly affects the national earn- ings. Not only does the cost of educating and training a fresh generation of workers repre- sent an immense loss of money, but many years must elapse before the new recruits can take their places in the industrial army. It is, therefore, of the highest :importanceto the State that all its workers should continue to be efficient as long as possible. If one of I them becomes an invalid or dies, the general stock of wealth produced will "be less, and the burden of supporting a family may be east upon the pubic. I BLUSHING. Blushing is almost invariably a nervous affection, and it is most important that any- one who suffers in this way should attend to ) the general health. Plain, simple food, plenty of outdoor exercise, and well-ventilated rooms all help to tone up the nervous system, and so tend towards a cure. But it is neces- sary to exercise one's will power too. Try to remember that most people will not even notice whether you blush or not, and make up your mind to ignore it yourself as much as possible. A great deal can be done by cultivating strength of will in this direction.
