" f What Men Think JI1 1 jf A Talk With the Unsuccessful J i By CHARLES Winifred Black, In her Interesting arti cle on "The Beauty Crase," printed re cently In The Bee, atika with her char acteristic directness and sincerity. "What tha American man thinks of all this be-beautlfut-or- die cult" "Do the men really demand this sort of thins?" aha says referring, of course, to the straining efforts that some women make to be beauti ful. It Is respectfully submitted that In general men do not demand or appre ciate the excesses In feminine clothe and cosmetics that Winifred Black de scribes. Some men do, but they are not the kind of men that Miss Black would consult. They match the women she criticises. These men and women are in hot pur suit of fine things. But they do not know what fine things ere. They are under the illusion that fineness Is the op posite of efficiency, and that eleganco is achieved by dead-ret to be useless or to seem to be. ' Thla way of thinking Is very old. It has been fortified by false philosophers and false religions, by all the Inveterate yj-....,,..-V If i FERGUROX laws of caste and privilege, by senti mental literatures, by the durillng futil ities of finance, by the temperamental artists, and pretty nearly the whole rare of haberdashers and hairdressers since the bewildered world began. "The beauty craze" of which Winifred Black writes so eloquently, so persua sively, with such healing wisdom, Is a great thing pone wrong. Jt Is the morbid and distempered aspect of the greatest thing In the human world to wit, the passion for perfection. ' What do sensible men think of the painted women? They think of them with pity and sorrow, and with contri tion for their own ancestral sins that made the painted women possible. But do such men think lightly of thai posslonate striving after beauty even at cost of ease and with high sacrifice which Is the special glory and travail of true womankind? Most assuredly not. The struggle after beaut?- of shop girls, housewives- of narrow means,- the myralds of frail burden bearers at the base of our crushing eoonomlo system Is the age's grail-quest and martyrdom. Nothing In really more fine than the way some women, in mean streets, make fine art out of their ooarse conditions and translate Into elegance all the difficult processes of housekeeping and child rearing, and the grim necessities of board and clothes. Why begrudge their ribbons and dimity things? ...... These are their" decorations of royalty, and their ribbons of the legion of honor. r Piute Pete By MILES OVERHOLT. "Curiosity, It Is said, once killed a cat," said Piute Pete, as he thoughtfully took a handful of matches from the whatnot. "If that be true, I snow where a man who has a few bales of curiosity cn hand can make some money. "Last night at my flat the midnight air was split In . twain and. busted up the back in nine places under my window by a herd of cats that was holding a sort of campmeetlng and auction sale com bined and I couldn't sleep. "80 I threw the pitcher and the wash bowl and some photographs and my shoe at the felines; but It failed to break up the session to any extent. The cats merely climbed up on the roof and con tinued to transact business In the regular order. "Then I got up and ran against a rock ing cbalr and fell Into the fireplace, 'driving one Of my best toes Into the wall so far I had to draw myself loose with a porous plaster, and knocking the varnish off my nose. Then I threw my trousers and an empty whisky bottle that the Janitor had left In the room by mis take at the cats, and broke a window out of nn adjoining rrvom. I then stood on a Vollar button, which up to that time had been lost, and thought it over. , "I decided to climb out of the window and kick the cats off the roof. "When I reached the roof all the cats had disappeared but one. Tt remained perfectly still while I tiptoed tip to It, holding onto the roof with one hand (me. I mean) and driving shingle nails Into the roof head first with my bare feet. That was about the barest fent I ever did. "When I got close enough to the cat I drew back my right foot and kinked with the condensed strength and eager ness of hours of suffering "There was a crash as my foot struck the corner of the roof, which had In the darkness resembled a cat. "The doctor says he will be able to save my foot, owing to Its great con stitution and strength; but the car penter says the roof must have suffered the wrath of an earthquake. ."These are a few reason why I .can use some curiosity, the stronger the better." f How To Be Beautiful 1 By MARGARET 1IUBRRI A YER. Last summer I went abroad to "do" the various beauty establishments In London, Paris and Berlin. It was. an In teresting pilgrimage and proved con clusively that Lincoln was wrong when ' he said that you couldn't fool all the ' people all the time. It'a being done daily at tremendous profit to the doer and much expense to the person done. One of my first errands took me to an exclusive beauty shop In Bond street, which has an old and established reputa tion and which was one of the first places In London to open a manicuring depart ment. "Of course they will have romething quite new In the line of fingernail polish ing," thinks I to myself, so I put my '. hands In with those of an exceptionally pretty manicure and told her to do her beat and newest. She did. She looked mi in the eye while she whittled my nails, and told me all the gossip she had Leard. She liked Ameri cans. She had Just finished polishing the hands of our moat celebrated financier. "You'd never believe that he was so rich. Why he looks that shabby, with a waistcoat spotted with grease I'd say he " was only two-pound-a-week man, but they tell me he own the At'.antlc ocean. Vou'd think he'd 'ave better clothes." In her sweet English voice she chatted on. I listened to her, quite fascinated, and tried not to scream when she Inad vertently cut me. The light was very bad, but she said she didn't need a good light to do nails by. "I'm so accustomed to them," she prat tled on merrily. She thought the queen foolish not to do her hair In a modern may and wouldn't Mry a bottle of the wonderful new liquid soap every one was using It. She has Just washed the hands of American's richest millionaire with It. I bought a small bottle, paying exactly 100 timea what it waa worth, for It proved to be tincture of green soap perfumed with lemon verbena. The salves and polishes she used were old friends of mine, put up in new boxes. Fhe helped me on with my gloves and bowed me out of the shop gracefully. It had really been too dark to see them before. I had no nails left to speak of, but the roots were a brilliant red. The pretty lady had carved and cut reck Itssly while ahe hypnotised me with her flightly conversation. And I had paid her for It. though I know better. The ex perience with the manicure waa one of many that I had before I reached the conclusion that Europe no longer leads HOWMOCrtOO PMiW0T-PHA P' MOWMUCH DOEi CLElfcn.a.PlD O. N tftfrNA.

Doth London and Paris can show us many tricks In cosmetics and makeup for everyday purposes, but In rational, sen sible hygiene they are still far behind us. They do not realise that perfect cleanli ness la necessarily the foundation of a good skin and that the ordinary American is educated to that point where "faking" is no longer tolerated. Everywhere In London and Paris I met with operators like the little manicure who knew nothing about their business. Here in America women spend inure money than anywhere il.-.e In the world on their looks, but they Insist on getting soms value for It, and they are all sufficiently up on the subject to be uMo to dlat'ilm. inate.
