things she did not have. She was
venomously jealous of every young girl
whose youth and beauty reminded her
of her own lost charms, and she took a
bitter revenge on the world in tale
bearing and gossip that wrecked homes
and blackened the names of Innocent
maidens. Everybody hated her, dread
ed her, feared her. She was one of the
pests of society.
Where is the old maid now? Ex
tinct. Extinct as the Dodo. Plenty of
unmarried women there are—more, per
i haps, than ever before in the history
of the world, but they are no more
like the old maids of the past than
a glass of generous'wine is like a
drop of vitriol.
I nmarrlrd Woman Now Only Haa Time
Business killed the old maid. The
unmarried woman of to-day has her
business or profession or her Indepen
dent income, she has her own home,
her myriads of interests, her friends,
her amusements, and «he is the jolliest,
most whole-souled and liberal-minded
person you can meet in a day's journey,
bhe's too busy with her own affairs to
nose into other people's, and she is so
happy In her free and independent
life lhat she simply sloshes over with
the milk of human kldness. She's so
little like the old maid of the past that
people don't even call her an old
ma'd. The world is no monnicker for
Then there's the Lachrymose Lady.
Don't you remember when you were a
child some woman who, always dressed
in black, with a long, sweeping crepe
veil hanging down her back, and
slimpsy black skirts trailing around
her. and black gloves on her hands
funeral gloves—who used to come to
see your mother and spend a whole
long happy day telling her troubles
and weeping of'them?
Where In the l.ndy of the Funeral
No such woman comes to see you.
There's just as much trouble in* the
world now as there ever was, God help
us. Husbands are unfaithful, children
are wayward, fortune get lost, but
when these misfortunes befall us we
no longer asrend to the wailing place
and call on the public to see us weep.
J,« don't parade our griefs in public.
>\p hide them and put up a bluff at
things being well with us whether they
are or not.
Where are these lachrymose ladies
now? Gone. The perpetual mourner
has vanished. Melancholy is no longer
a cult. There is too much sunshine in
the world for us to have any patience
with the morbidness that carefully cul
tivated melancholy instead of phil
osophy. and we should regard a woman
who let a single unfortunte love epi
sode blight her life as a subject for the
home for the feeble-minded Instead of
an object to cherish. Hence the lach
rymose lady nas wrapped her three
yard-long crepe veil around her and
stole away into the land of used-to-be.
And the dear old grandmother, the
grandmother who at 40 or 45 years of
age was done with the world and reads*
for the chimney corner and caps, and
who asked nothing- else of life but the
pleasure of taking care of her children's
children and tucking them into their
little beds and telling them Bible
stories. Grandma just had one best
dress, a good black silk, because she
was too old for the frivolty of clothes,
and the said black silk had a cavern

Scalp Dries—Chokes out the Hair
And Prevents Its Growth
If you want plenty of thick, beauti
ful, glossy, silky hair, do by all means
get rid of dandruff, for It will starve
your hair and ruin it if you 4on't.
It doesn't do much good to try to
brush or wash it out. The only sure j
way to get rid of dandruff is to dis
solve it, then you destroy it entirely i
To do this, get about four ounces of
ordinary liquid arvon; apply it at night
when retiring; use enough to moisten
the scalp an rub it in gently with
the finger tips.
By norning, most if nc ail, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or
four more applications will completely
dissolve and entirely destroy, every
single sign and trace of it.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop,
and your hair will be silky, fluffy, lus
trous, soft and look and feel a hun
dred times belter. You can get liquid
arvon at any drug store. It-is inex
pensive and four ounces is all you
will need, no matter how much dan
