THE PAINT-BRUSH FOLLY ,
The paint brush is regarded as on*
i,f the greatest follies of society
Recent reports from high medical
authorities say that paint such as is
being used by most women and which
L> bought at any drug store is not
only very harmful to the skin but
tends to destroy the health of the
body. It prevents the glands of the
slcitt from performing their proper j
functions and giving the slAii a glow,
of health and beauty that is not false.
Apart from the injury it does it is
one of the greatest frauds oi the age.
It hides beauty and covehi age alike. !

KiGHT OF PRIVATE OPINIONS
HAS ITS LIMITATIONS
Private opinion is a universal right
* • .
and is not denied any man. The
trouble comes when individuals try to
force private opinions on others.
Government is founded on private
opinion, boiled down until the better
parts only are used. No one man's
private opinion would be a good cri
terion to found a constitution on.
Private opinion, too, is often noth
ing more than an expression of sel
fishness from the individual. Most of
think a little liquor is good for
us but not for our neighbors, lxits
of us say honesty is TTie best policy
but within we do not support that
Private opinion can hot rule a
church, regardless of how good it is.
When it attempts the job,- weakness
Only a few men in all history have
become great leaders, then not on ac
count of their own private opinions,
t - ut upon an outgrowth of many opin
ions and experiences stretched out
