THE BEST THING
A school teacher, a few days
ago, asked her pupils what they
regarded as the best and most
valuable thing in Aspermont.
The children wrinkled their brows
looked perplexed and some of
them answered the question.
But they were all wide of the
The teacher indicated the an-
swers were wrong as each pupil
made his or her supreme effort to
find the correct answer to the
knotty problem. Finally the
teacher, when they were all ex-
pectant and very much excited
over what really was the best
thing in this commuiv'ty, told
them that they themselves were
the best and most, valuable.
It was somewhat of a jolt for
little folks, especially those with
a keen imagination, who had
cosjured up many wonderful
things. The teachers' answer
brought them back to earth, but
it gave them a sense of their im-
parlance in the world.
It should also give every per-
son living in the community, •■(..-

look like a girl of twenty, though
she is three times that age.
"It is an antiquated idea that
the ravages of advancing years
should play havoc with a woman's
beauty," she says. And again;
"No woman of sixty or more ad-
vanced years need be without
that beauty and charm of youth
if she will but use the aids of

bloom of youth are not enumera-

counted this as wasted words be-
cause no home is complete with-
out that which brings the red
glow to the cheek and beautiful
lustre to the hair.
And the subject of hair is not
even mentioned. Whether it is
essential that grandmother have
her gray locks bobbed in order to
essap the roll of grand daughter
is probably regarded as trivial,
because the Modern woman who
never lets any grass grow under
her feet, likewise never permits
any hair to grow on her head.
There may come a day, of
course, when ever flapper will
know her own grandmother.
Those who control the destinies
of the weaker sex aver that it will
be worn long again next winter,
and when that day comes, the
charm of youth still be retained,
