HE MIDNIGHT BALL," whloh was held at tho Hotel Savoy, In
London, last week, was one of tho largest charity balls ot the
season In the capital and wan attended by many Americans.
Mr. Edward D. Perkins of New York, formerly of Omaha, was
one of tho guests.
The charity ball waB for the benefit of, or, as the English say, "In
aid of," the National Institute for the Blind, and the committee included
such notables as Colonel Sir Gilbert Parker, the marquis of Salisbury, the
earl of Lonsdale, Lady Randolph Churchill and a score of other well
Listen to tho way they manage a charity ball in "dear ol' Lunnon":
"Dancing will start at midnight and contlnuo until 5 a. m.
"In order to avoid overcrowding, the number of tickets has been
limited. They started at 3 guineas (about ?15) and are now selling at
4 guineas ($20).
"A special hot breakfast will bo sorved botwoen 3 and 5 o'clock In
the large ball room at a small additional charge"
And wo think $10 Is a lot for tho Ak-Sar-Ben ball, with supper free,
or $5 for the charity ball!
But here is another new idea! About fifty valuable gifts were do
nated by public-spirited tradesmen of London. Some of tho "favors" In
cluded a Daimler motor car, fully equipped; a 50-gulnea diamond and
pearl pendant; thero wore orders for sport coats, hats, blouses, frocks,
sunshades, fitted dressing cases, ladles' motor vanity casos, opera glosses,
boxes for all of the theaters and mule halls and scores of other attractive
and useful gifts.
The London social season Is still at Its height There are race meet
ings, polo matches, costume balls, theaters, aTlation exhibitions and festiv
ities for the royalty. Omaha people in London recontly had a peep nt
royalty when they attended tho "Trooping of the Colors" ceremony, an
annual event in colebration of tho king's birthday, and attending were
King George, Queen Mary, Dowager Queen Alexandra and their court.

How English Beauties
Keep Faces Youthful
Christian Miller, F. C. I., noted English
health expert, attributes the early aging
of American women mainly to the "na
tional nervousness." The women ot Eng
land, she says, can teach us the Inesti
mable lesson of repose.
Another valuable lesson to be learned
from the English woman Is that Bhe does
not go In much for cosmetics, the con
tinual use of which must ruin any com
plexion. The beauty devotees of King
George's realm have the morcollzed wax
habit, a more wholesome method of keep
ing the face girlish-looking and healthy.
Ordinary mexcoliied wax, used like cold
cream, rejuvenates the worst complexion.
Women here may easily acaulre the habit,
this wax being obtainable at drug stores
generally in tho United States and Can
ada, is appuea at mgm ana wasnoa
off in the morning. One ounce Is suf
ficient to completely renovate a bad com
clexlon. It has a Decullar action In keeo-
ln the face free from the particles of
dead apd devitalized scarf skin which are
constantly appearing. Advertisement.
