You eay, Dcnnle, that you have been an instructor In a skat
ing rink and that you are the hero of forty "knockouts." I think
you roust have a glorious physique and should qualify for a cotillion leader.
But, leave Omaha to make your social ascension. In your home town
yoir are at the great disadvantage of a previous Impossible surrounding.
Do not worry about your "dough." If you spend It with a true air of fine
sportsmanship In a new and correct setting, no one Is going to take the
trpuble to trace It down to tts source of four kings. Such prying person
alities are In extremely bad form In smartest clrclea these days.
Leave Chicago or Minneapolis alone, but you have a good show In
some of the other larger towns of the midwest. Patronize the most fash
ionable tailor and dancing master. It is the business of men in these oc
cupations to be up on matters of social usage and form; and, as their gen
erous patron, consult with them and follow their Instructions.
Do not make the nilnlake of trying to break Into a man's exclusive
club. Quarter yourself In the best style at the bust hotel. Have the finest
machines, including one racing car which you will drive as if possessed of
all the demons of speed. Look rakish and fetching as you drive along the
boulevards. They'll take notice of you, and nice women will soon ask you
for donations to their pet charities and philanthropies.
Do not play the flirt about It, nor even affect the sentimental; but
yet be devotion Itself to some plain spinster of foremost social prominence.
She will appreciate the marked attention of a dashing bachelor. She
will land you socially, Bennie. Your devotion to her will bring men
to ber more worthy than you. The stronger sex are so fly-like where
women are concerned. More than one case has been known where the at
tentions of a handsome masculine climber mado a bolle of en ugly duck
ling and finally married her a worthy man.
Your case is not hopeless, Bennie, If the four kings brought in enough
to give you full play at the new game. Outside of the south, society does
not eland on graves today, nor even In old shoes. If there is an ounce of
gentleman under your skin, you can win out.
