Young Women Prefer to Dance
To Its Wierd Melodies
Learn to Play Ukelele.
v'EAZE HAS BEACHED HERE
By MELLIFICIA August 30.
The weird melody of Hawaiian
music has won the hearts of society.
Rag time for pleasure and for danc
ing is rapidly being consigned to the
background and in its place Hawaiian
melodies on Hawaiian instruments
are being used. In New York espe
cially this is the case, for there every
one has gone mad over the novelty.
The ukele is the instrument of the
hour. In Chlrajro the young women
on the bathing beaches in their gay
bathing costumes sun themselves on
the sands and tinkle its strains.
Omaha young women have the craze
as badly as all the rest. Some play
the little instruments in secret, some
take lessons privately, but others are
willing to admit that they are inter
ested and improving ukelele players.
The Misses Gertrude MeU, Marion
Kuhn. Mildred Rlioades, Dorothy
Balbach and Ruth Hamilton are
among the most enthusiastic pupils.
Miss Luella Allen says that the
number of aspirants to proficiency on
the ukelele is rapidly increasing.

BY BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
Do women want a meed of flattery
and compliments offered them as
tribute or do they desire the finer
tribute of honest, simple and, if need
be, bitter truth?
Does the feminine want even its
medicine sugar-coated, or is it will
ing to swallow a bitter dose if that
will prove curative? . . , ,
On the attitude of the individual
woman toward these questions de
pends whether she is to have true
friends as she goes through life or
whether she can nope for nothing bet
ter than acquaintances with women
and flirtations with men. ( .
The truth isn't always pleasant;
how can it be? Life itself is far
too bitter and grim a reality to make
that possible. But the truth is cura
tive. The people who tell it to you
have taken the trouble to study you.

as an individual worthy their atten

None of us can stand off and get
a perspective on ourselves. All of us
have unsuspected weakness and pe
culiarities, and little 'mental twists
and turns which make us repellant to
some and charming to others. But,
unfortunately, our weakness may
make us repel those whom we most
desire to attract. Then what can be
more valuable than a friendship
which tells us honestly and loyally
where lie our weaknesses and where
our chances of improvement? 1

The friend who is honest with you
honest, frank and perhaps even
brutal is the true friend. The flat
tering sycophant who offers honeyed
words is actually your enemy. He
does not look at you through rose
colored glasses and see you as better
than you are, but he considers you a
weakling who wants to be fed sugar
plums and to be catered to and flat
tered. Don't be cynical about the kind
things people say to you; but take
them with sanity and modesty, and
try to accept in a spirit of sweetness
adverse criticisms, which may be
about the healthiest dose any friend
can offer you.
Therein lies one of the qualities in
masculine nature that enables it to
stand more calmly than does the fem
inine life's wear and tear; men like
flattery but they can stand the truth.
Some masculine weaklings adore
compliments; but the average strong
man prefers cold facts to fairy tales.
We women must cultivate in our
natures a greater liking for honesty,
though it be brutal.

are, nonetheless, and for these prudent mothers prepare. The wise ones depend on

When Crow's Feet
Begin to Come
Crow's feet not invariably, but
generally, come from weak eyes and
delay or procrastination in using
spectacles. If the eyes are habitually
screwed up they will soon form. To
avoid this, wear plain motor goggles
in a high wind, even when driving in
an ordinary carriage, and blue glasses
whenever the sun is strong.
Crow's feet yield sometimes oftener
to massage than any other facial
trouble. Take a little massage cream
and rub in well in a circular man
ner, round and round. Do this for
five minutes night and morning. If
the eyelids themselves arew rinkled,
the same treatment may be employed,
only in a far gentler fashion.
Salt and water, or the tannin in
strong tea. is often an astringent for
preventing crow's feet; or bark and
myrrh, to be bought from any care
ful druggist, but these are apt to stain
the skin, unless good massage cream
is subsequently rubbed in.
If the eyes suddenly blink at a
light, cr the eyelids start twitching

that you a'r run down in health and
overworked, or that you need spec
tacles. It is probably anaemia, and

Sleep is also a great beautifier for
the eyes. The eyes of a good sleeper

color, and the eyelids will fold back

Winking which is irritating to watch.
It the eye suddenly twitches, and an
oculist pronounces glasses unneces
sary, it would be advisable to go in
for masfage or electrical treatment.
It sometimes is the precursor of 4
nervous breakdown or some other
serious malady. A doctor should be
consulted in this case, as is best, also,
with any irregularity of the eyes. To
tie a green ribbon around the eyes
at night is excellent for resting thl
eyes and keeping them calm and sti'l.
