The kindness of several Omaha
V hostelies in opening their homes to
the public during the course of lec
tures o i. Kichard huller has eiven
rise to some discussion in regard to
trie atgtude ot the public toward
gatnerings in private houses.
Someone suggested that perhaps
many people, although interested in
the lectures, might be timid about at
tending them because they were not
, held in public places. One of the
hostesses disagreed. "They are more
apt to come from sheer curiosity,"
she said, and then told this story.
Recently one of Omaha's social-
elect was giving a luncheon at her
home for twelve select guests. As
the women arrived they were directed
by the maid to the hostess' boudoir
to lay aside their wraps. As some of
the later arrivals entered the room,
whit was their .surprise to sec one of
the women who had already divested
herself of her outer garments open
the closet doors and look curiously
inside, exclaiming as she did so, "My,
what" lovely closets Mrs. So-and-So
has!" , .
This story is similar to one which
happened in Chicago qnly last week.
A prominent members of the Equal
Franchise society opened her house
for a large, gathering of the organi
sation. It was a beautiful mansion,
well worth exploring, as the guests
no doubt thought, for the hostess was
obliged to station servants at all the
stairways or means of access to the
upper floors to prevent some people
from roaming. Even then numbers
of the guests were found wandering
in the butler's pantry and other out-of-the-way
To be sure, not every hostess has
the same experiences with curious
guests, but the fact remains that even
in some of our "test families," much
as we hate to admit it, the curiosity
This evening will be the last of the

Crittenden Smith was hostess, about
evenly guests were present and do-

to be sent later, were made. '

Most of the world feels sure that
woman was designed to attract man,
so let us accept that hypothesis and
figure out how best she can do it.
Beauty is the natural answer, since
the first thing that is attracted is the
eye, and beauty, of course, docs catch
the eye. Docs beauty, then consist in
chiselled features and exquisite color
ing, or is it a matter which goes be
yond charming surfaces. '
Surface beauty is very much in de
mand, but it cao be counterfeited. It
can he roiintprfpilrTl and it rlnru nnt
last. The woman who trusts her phy
sical beauty to bring her happiness is
likely to nnd nerselt bankrupt betore
middle age sets in. v
Beauty of expression is the beauty
which lasts. Beauty of soul shining
out of an almost plain face gives it
charm which appeals far more to the
beholder than a Greek nose and a
rosebud niouth-yprovided the behold
er is also the observer.

One glance, and the doll-like girl
who has nothing back of her surface
loveliness attracts. A little study, and
the splendid character of the girl who
is sympathetic, tender, capable of
thoufjlit and feeling, appeals to deep
emotions unstirred by mere pretti
ness. The woman who works has often a
weary and almost haggard expression.
Butjyen her tired look has a more
heart-stirring appeal than the fresh
pink and white ofpaint and powder
coated over a doll-like face lacking
animation of soul or spirit.
To all writers there conieN letters
galore from unpopular and lonely
girls who want to know how they can
make themselves charming and at
tractive to men.
Some of them peevishly announce
that Ihey are far prettier than other
girls they know who outshine them
in popularity and some complainingly
remark that Nature handicapped them
by not making them beautiful. But
both are wide of the mark. Not
beauty, as they see it, nor the lack
of it makes for charm and popularity.
Real beauty lies in expression, in
the potentialities your face expresses
potentialities of sweetness, of sym-
patny, ot understanding and tact, of
brilliancy and kindness.
And the girl who wants to cultivate
beauty and feels handicapped by lack
of a chiseled nose and long eyelashes
never need disuair even if she can not
acquire them by taking thought. For
by taking thought she can acquire
something justs as good, nav better.

Tom Brown, the celebrated artist,
knew a restaurant where the cus
tomers often had a difficulty in dis
tinguishing whether it was mutton or
beef they were eating. A puzzled
customer would summon the solitary
waiter to him to decide what it was
he was eating.
"Waiter! Waiter!" he would call.
"Is this beef or mutton?" the per
plexed one would inquire, pointing to
j "What did you ask for, sir?" the
; waiter would ask.
The waiter would cast an eye upon
"And beef it is, sir, sure enough,"
he would reply. If the customer had,
however, asked for mutton, it was
mutton. Whichever the customer
wished it to he. that it was.
"1c requires a keen eye to search
below the surface of things," declared
"It is oirly acquired by practice, by
experience, and people have often
neither the time nor the inclination
to take the trouble to search out the
reality of things. We are bound to i
go, in a vast number of cases, by
what we are told."
Keen eyes are, indeed, needed. The
more useful the real person is, the
more eager is the impostor to pass
himself off in his place. At the pres
ent time numbers of young folk boys
and girls are looking forward to
qualifying themselves for livelihoods.
The people who will teach them how
to qualify themselves for posts are
worthy of every praise and encouragement.
But I am informed that the fee
snatcher is particularly busy just now.
He or she holds out before livelihood
seekers attractive salaries, and leads
those to whom such wages would be
a godsend to believe that appoint
ments are thick as blackberries.
Only, of course, you must first pay
a fee and receive so much tuition be
fore you can hope to pocket that re
ward. Disillusionment come-in the end.
The big rewards are found to be ex
traordinary exceptions among sal
aries so poor that the "qualified" one
could have done as well without
spending his money.
It will pay an anxious wage earner
to first of all "take the trouble to
search out the reality of things," be

precious time. There are people who,
instead of cheating him. will give
