getting away from Johnson's Mews,

The Peacock Man
By UEAtfHICE FAIRFAX.
"Will you please," writes Perplexed,
tell mo what to think of a man who. al
though lie says he loves me, and proves
that he does In a great many ways, yet
whonever he goes near a pretty salesgirl
to purchase anything he always tries to
catch her oyo und thop smites, laying
himself open to tho suspicion that he is
a male flirt Do you think a girl ought to
take offense when a man does this In her
company cr should sho treat tho matter
lightly and say nothing?
Of all the wise sayings thrown Into
the air since tho days of Solomon there Is
none qulto so effective In the handling of
affairs of tho heart as that which refers
to an equable division of tho sauce. That
which Is sauce for one sex is sauce for
the other. If It Is enjoyable or even per
missible, for a man to ogle every girl he
meets, then the girl to whom he Is en
gaged to be married should get out a
spoon and dip It In.
Of all detcs'table creatures, the male
flirt Is tho worst The desire to flirt In
dicates weakness, vanity, fickleness and
selfishness. It l tho mark of the brain
lets man. The innn across whose office
door the spiders will some day build a
web Is the man who flirts with hts clerks
and his stenographers. The man who
reaches a position ot honor and trust
never stopped to nudgo a pretty girl or
wink at a pretty woman on the way
A weakness In the man who Is not en
gaged, It becomes a disgusting offense
against good taste In the man who Is be
trothed, and a sin against good morals
In the man who has a wife. The male
flirt knows no boundary line.
. He Is not true to himself, and It fol
lows he cannot be true to others. He ts
worthless to hts family and to the com
munity In proportion to the extent with
which he Indulges himself In this most
Inane of follies. Like the peacock, he
struts around so proud ot the plumage
that attracts admiration that he Is blind
to the ugliness of his feeet. He becomes
concentrated on his powers to attract at
tention and degenerates little by little
Into the simpering, brainless male being
that occjplcs tho street corner and at
tempts to vulgarly "make a mash" on
every petticoat that goes by.
The man to whom "Perplexed" Is en
gaged has started down the path that
terminates In the street corner. The man
who "tries to catch the eye" of every
pretty salesgirl Is on his way to be
coming the human derelict that makes
vulgar remarks to every woman he meets
on the streets.
My dear, the cure Is extreme. KHrt with
the men you meet and he will be cured
of his folly, but the remedy la so severo

Question How la the orbltral speed ot
the sun determined, and 'with what prob
able degreo of accuracy?
Answer Specific speeds of suns In space,
flying In every possible .direction, are
found by means ot telescopic observation
and measurement of their proper-motions.
First find their distances from the earth,
and then, with precision, measure how
many seconds ot arc they move per year.
Then their velocities can be computed In
But suppose that a flying sun is com
ing on an exact line toward the earth or
receding on a true straight line. Then tho
telescope alone cannot see any motion at
all. But .one ot the chief discoveries ot
all ages Is the telespectroscope. To even
think of the power of this delicate in
strument makes one wish to write the
oft-repeated wortis, The powers now so
nearly latent In the phase of mind called
human are Illimitable.
The telespectroscope actually measures
the velocities ot approach and recession
of giant suns In the line of sight. Thirty
years ago, one would have said, "This Is
beyond the power of man." But It Is
common now to measure these direct mo
tions. The principle is, that when a body emit
ting light Is coming In a straight line to
of Flying Suns
ward the eye, mora waves enter the eye
than If the body is going away on a
Now the exceedingly refined measuring
Instrument, the spectroscope, when at
tached to a huge telescope, Is able to
measure this excess and diminution ot
waves of light. The good folks in Ara
bian times never Imagined, any fantastic
thing comparable with this sclentlfo real
ity. For waves measured range from
lengths In between 33,000 to 3,000 to the
inch that are visible; while tho (oto-tele-camera,
In conjunction with the spectro
scope, deals with waves still shorter, so
short that no eye cn see them, but still
visible to molecules of chemicals on very
sensitive and rapid films and plates.
The degree of accuracy Is far greater
than that of a carpenter measuring the
length of a board. And these suns are
all In motion ordinarily In between lim
its of four to eighty miles per second.
But a few suns, In a select class all by
themselves, move from 123 to 200 miles
during each second of time.
The paths of suns when flying singly
and alone In interminable space are not
called orbits, for the paths of bees in a
swarm would not be called orbits. But
where binaries and ternaries are in revo
lution around their common gravitation
center, by twos and threes, then the
paths are regular conlp sections and are
expressed by the word orbit

Even an occasional pimple shoull not
be neglected, for, while pimples arc not
contagious In the sense of being carried
from one person to another, ono plmplo
may carry Infection to another part ot
the skin and continue tho trouble. If a
plmplo Is forming bring It to a head by
applications of hot water. When tho
white spot Is plainly indicated, open vlth
a needle that has been sterilized by pac
ing through a gas or candlo flame and
carefully press out all tho pus. Then
bathe the spot with peroxide of hydrogen.
Hard, sore spots that grow red but
show no sign of opening Bhould be painted
with whlto lodlno. Apply this with a
soft .brush and In most cases the Irrita
tion and swelling will disappear. Be
sure and get tho white or colorless lodlno:
the brown Is too strong for the skin of
the face and will also leave a stain.
Beauty habits and habits that mar
beauty are easily cultivated during theso
years. Among tho latter are frowning,
distorting tho face and biting the Una,
Thick or rough lips should bo kept well
lubricated with a good cream; never n't--or
moisten them with the tongue, fur
this will only increase the trouble. Re-
memuer mat lrowning win majie perma
nent lines in the face and that a happy
expression will render any face attractive.
Blonde hair, so common with the Anglo
Saxon race In childhood, is prono to
darken toward maturity. So often my
pupils ask for something to prevent this.
There Is little we can do to change pig
mentation; that Is decided while tho hair
Is in the bulb and Is ono of tlio mys
teries of nature's chemistry Nothing
can make tho hair grow light after It has
started dark; It can bo mado light by
bleaching or dyeing.
There are. however, some harmless
methods that will brighten the hair. Hair
that is kept dry, .free from perspiration
and an oily condition of the scalp, will
remain blonde longer than it would if
neglected. An fegg shampoo tend3 to
brighten blonde hair, or, If the ordinary
soap shampoo Is given, tho Julco of half
a lenion added to the last rinsing water
will have the same effect Soda and
peroxide of hydrogen will render the hair
light and fluffy for a time, hut tbe con
tinual use of either will eventually make
the hair brittle and lifeless and take a'l
color from It.
How much better to accept nature's
dictum In this mater and promote the
right color by treating tho hair jightlv.
This means a dally brushing; combing and
airing of the hair, an occasional seal
massage and a thorough shampoo once
a fortnight, or more often If dandruff Is
present. With proper care the hair will
bo glossy, soft and beautiful, no matter
what the tint and this Is sufficient M
make It beautiful.
In the next lesson Mme. Ise'bell will
tako up the subject of wrinkles and gl.i
directions for facial massage.
