Hire 1 am once again writing to miii
about beauty.
I should hesitate tu do so if It were
not a subset aoout which eej wo.v.un
Is keenly Interested, and which alto oc
cupies the mind of man a good deal of
the time.
I am willing to wrlle about bea aj to
i-'vulge those secrets which have helped
me gain my reputation for good looks,
and when 1 spenk about-my own looks,
understand that 1 do It In the most tm.
personal way.
To bo beautiful, at least-to be a.s beau
tiful as I can be. Is a matter of the ut
,mot Importance to me because ;t helps
me In my work. My looks first attracted
the attention of, the public toward me
and It was due to suoh looks as t had
that 1 gained the approbation of the
' "

tality, ami- no longer have the good
fortuno to please the public.
There Is a great difference between tho
attitude of he so-called professional
beauty and the beautiful woman In tho
ordinary and more sheltered walks of J
life toward this question of beauty
T once heard th- most beautiful actiess
in America say that her reputation for
! beauty was a sort of Iron ball lo which
I she was always chained, and which mado
J her a. slave. "If I should be seen In pub
i He. oven puce, with my hair badly un
, dulated and a shiny nose, it would cost
"j ine an enormous amount or money, be
euue people would say: 'Dear me. how
she's gone off In looks." and that would
' affect the box office, which in turn would
I affect my .salary."
I So this very Intelligent woman who
I often would have preferred to spend her
' time In other ways, who would like to I
1 have kept up with all that wns best In
modern literature, who was imnicnseij
! philanthropic and would have liked to
give some attention to charitable work
spends almost nil her life taking care nf
her beauty and sho admits that It Is
drudgery pure and simple.
; If she were not a beauty and did not
devote, most ot her attention to her looks,
however, she could not earn the largo
sums of money which she gives to charity.
j nor would she bo able to help young and
Uruggllng artists and writers.
Hcntity is a business asset, but tho
llfo of the professional beauty Is not tho
gay butterfly existence It jlfl pictured to
be, but one o'f pnlnstakfiig-, Hysten?ntlc
rare, which necessitates abstaining fi-om
most of the thlnas one would like to eat,
not doing most of i the things one would
like to do.
for there l! no elixir of youth, no
fountain of beauty. They are the result
re the result
! care of the
y, provldfng.
of Intelligent and systematic
bod) . nnd tho modem beauty
of course, she has some foundation of
good looks to start with, studies the mat
ter scientifically and becomes beautiful
by dint of hard work.
In France we say: "You must suffer
to bo beautiful." That was because In
olden times women did so many ridicu
lous and barbarous things to enhance
their complexion. They put clothes pins
on their nosii., and compresses of raw
beef over their faces which could have
been anything but pleasant.
Today the proverb could l(n changed
you must work to be beautiful.
I have been reading a great deal about
eugenics lately In the dally papers. I
take It that this means tho production of
a perfect race,, governed by all the known
laws of health and hygiene. Kugonlc
babies ought to grow up Into beautiful
men and women, for beauty gets Its real
start In babyhood.
Of course, I know that many famous
beauties have come from the most
wretched and even squalid beginnings.
Still, as a general rule, the child whose
advent was longed for, whose babyhood
was carefully watched and guarded over
by love and affection and whoso early
training was Intelligent and even scienti
fic, 1ms the best chance to grow up to
happy and healthy maturity.
Happiness Is the dancing partner of
beauty. They can hardly be dissociated;
where you have a happy child you gener
ally luive a pretty one. But the little girl
who is gloomy and sad ,1s Involuntarily
lleauty Is u business atcet, but tho
gay butterfly cxlxtcuco It Is pictured
casting her feutilres Into a look of settled
melancholy or discontent. Neither of
these Is beautiful.
Ko If we nre to start out with the
secrets of beauty, let us begin at the very
beginning with a happy childhood.
It Is said that the women of the hard
laboring classes age prcmatutoly. Nat
urally, they must, for long beforo they
have reached an ngo where tho norma 1
child could understand about sorlous
things, like work and responsibility, t hoy
have taken their load of tho family bur
den and are already hard at work plod
ding and tolling to support their meagiD
A long, slow and very gradual develop
ment, both of tho physical and mental,
are needed to store up vitality and health
which will be used to make tho future
In the meantime there are all kinds
of sports mid nxerches to dovclop the'
Ilttlo body and bring It to Its highest point
of perfection.
If a child Is not properly formed almost
any Imperfection can bo overcome If
taken youne enough and systematically
worked at.
Kyes that are crossed can bo made nor
mal; nnd we havo In France, Just as I am
sure you have here, many schools where
gymnastics are taught for children under
the supervision of u doctor, who exam
ines the children carefully and plves thorn
tho exercises needed to correct whatever
Imperfections they may have.
Don't forget that the foundation 'of
beauty Is laid before one Is 10 years old,
and see that you aro not neglecting the

her Bhato of health and good looks.

and I said u great ninny things t know
he did not like to hear come from my lips.
1 deeply regret ihoni. us I am ,i very

too, Would you advise mo to telephone
to him and explain, nnd aslt his for
(liveliness? I-'OUUKT-MK-NOT.
It would bo better tasto to write a Ilttlo
note saying you regret what you said.
Don't make it ns penitent as If life de
pended on his forglveuness, nnd don't.
1 beg, be so reckless with words In the

Dear Mli Fairfax: I am a young mnli
of 17 and have known a girl eight months
my senior ror a year and, n half. I curU
a gond deal for her, and am sure sh'"
knows It, for I have shown It In every
way. How can I find out If she cares
for ino? A. M
If you must know tho state of hw
heai t, ask her. Ilut think, first: Am
'you not too young to be speculating Ih
hearts? Tho question you would ask
tho girl W eiiulvalent to a proposal of
marriage, You' uro too young for that
Walt until you ore old enough to know
your own mind, nnd In position to sup

Dear Miss Fairfax: I am 16 years af
age. hast summer I met a man six year
my senior whom I-havo learned to love
dearly, and know that my love Is reclpro!
cated. My father was opposed to hliti,
and Insulted him, which he took like K
man, and I was forbidden to speak U
him. I hail not spoken to him for about
three weeks, and one duy I met him
Breaking my Lather's command, I spoke
to him. nnd four wn loved each othea
drurly. I speak to a number ot other
men, but I find that 1 couldn't love any
as I love hlin. TnUPTFC't.,
You are only 10, and your father know;
better than you know who Is the best
company for you. Don't speak to thp
man n Kill n ; mako no attempts to so
htm nnd don't deceive your father or
disobey him again,

Dear Miss Fairfax: Is It a young man's
Waco, when In church, to put In a colM
lion for tho young lady, or Is it her pln
to put In her own? FANNY.j
It' the young man puts In the collcctkm
for the girl. It shows u spirit of gallantry,
but It is not sho who docs the giving if
her conscience tells her to give to tHe
church, her escort cannot relieve her coij
sclenco of that duty.
