Tho mcMora society woman has a

▼isits to the masseuse, the hair-
dresser, the chlropodlet. are a neces-
sary part of her grooming today.
While grandma tucked her awltch
guiltily away In the drawer pt her
dressing table and could not he bul-
lied into the admission that aho used
i powder, today her granddaughter un-
hesitatingly admits that she wears
false braids and curia and that tho soft
glow of health on her rounded ohoek
was skillfully applied by a "perfect
wonder" of a beauty doctor.
Social affairs bare increaaed lnanum-

him reeling several paces backward
and stunned him so that ho dropped

were so surprised thst thsy merely
stared at each other for a few sec-

started to run at expreea speed.
"Here's a good one," 8am laughed

of his assailant. "This fellow Intend-

to hold him up Just to balance things

give up tho chass, however, for he
was burdened with a heavy ulster,
