A Woman's Reflections in Front of Her Mirror.

. It is marvellous how many homely people turn away from thuir mirrors self-satisfied. It's a poor sort of woman who is ugly and does uot kuow it. A woman looks into her mirror with her own eyes. It reflects her as she is. . To tell a, homely woman that beauty counts for nothing 1 is like explaining to a starving family that the lives of the rich are wretched. She who is beautiful within i 3 never altogether ugly without. It may be easier for a plain woman to be good than for a pretty one; but you will not find the homely woman who will believe it. If a woman proves that she has brains in her head, people scon forget to look for a dimple in her chock. Some people talk as though brains always were given ns compensation tor an ugly face. Wrinkles on the face are not necessarily a sign of deep thoughts in the head. Wrinkles cf ten are only frowns perpetuated. Only a women's mirror knows how much beauty can bo bought at the shops nowadays. Much beauty is not even skin deep. Cheerfulness, cheerfulness, cheerfulness, is the only true and permanent beautifier in the world. A true smile is something born deep down in the heart, which beams from the eyes and the mouth and the whole being by the force of its warmth. It is a breaking forth of inward light. In order to have a beautiful smile, teach the heart, the lip 3 will learn of themselves. To bo beautiful in the eyes of those at home, this is co be beautiful indeed ! No woman is a heroine to her mirror.
