Choosing A Pet Dog
Of all the animals man has domesticated, the dog has won the highest place in affection and the most secure position in the home. It is the animal that most easily becomes a member of the family, understanding our moods, entering into our play periods, always willing to serve and always loyal.
Feeding Your Dog
It is always amazing to me that so many owners of new puppies are baffled about the proper diet for a puppy.
Puppy Care And Training
I have raised and trained enough puppies to know that housebreaking takes time, but I believe new owners will have less trouble if they make more effort in the beginning to let the pup know exactly what is wanted of him.

How To Read Character From The Features
Know it is the custom of many unthinking persons to jest at the assumption, so called, of the physiognomist. I have a thousand and one times been laughed to scorn when I have declared that a certain man or woman was not to be trusted because he or she had deceitful eyes and a retreating chin.
Caring For Your Hands
The artistic hand with its delicate, tapering fingers is like the poet "born not made," and every woman may not hope for this ideal "second face" as the hand has been cleverly called.

I take thy hand, this hand, As soft as dove's down, and as white as it. Winters Tale. It is not difficult to have soft, pretty hands.
The Foot And Foot Care
Smallness alone was, in my girlhood, the test of beauty in feet, as I recollect it. I remember perfectly my mother's look of surprise and stern disapproval when I had to suc cumb to a number three shoe.
The Foot And Foot Care
The high French heel is accountable not only for the distortion of the first joint of the great toe, but for innumerable feminine internal complaints - besides which, it is utterly impossible for any woman alive to walk or dance gracefully in high French heels.
