which is ostentatious and the still
beautiful costumes to be worn at this
year's ball will indicate this as surely
as any government barometer.
"Soft, opalescent velvets, as pleas
ing to the touch as chiffon, will be
used for the handsomest gowns at the
ball," is the information imparted by
one of Omaha's leading mentors of
the world of fashion. "There will be
a few gold and silver cloth gowns
but very, very few. Satins, tulle, taf
feta and combinations of any two of
these materials are second in favor."
; White satin combined with tulle
will fashion most of the special maids'
court gowns, but several have chosen
the white velvet, which promises to
make most beautiful creations
. Deep pink will be the popular
choice in colors for t Ak-Sar-Ben
gowns, though the choice of white
for' the gowns of the princesses of
the court will be followed 'by other
ladies in waiting. i

Velvet gowns have been the ex

smart and Hickson decides to help it
along, yon get results like this. Navy blue
serge belted impudently as to collar as well as
waist with gray suede, and that simple description
gives you the outline of the wonderful dress whose

which terminates in a bustle, all emphasize the latest
fashion hints from Paris and the good old U. S. A.
To complete your dress effectively, gray suede

encircles the whole.
School Nurses Start Out
New Boys of Willie
Willie, 12-year-old Mason school
boy, will be quite a help to his mother
when he jrows np. Miss Charlotte
Townsend, supervisor of public school
nurses, is sure he will.
Willis s surname is not being used
at this time, because his teacher be
lieves it would be unwise. Last year
Willie was all that he should not have
been. He was listless, spelled "cat
with a "k," hardly knew he was alive.
The school iturses "took Willie to
pieces," put a new accelerator into his
mental machinery' by removing ton
sils and adenoids and improving his
auricular organs. Willie is now bat
ting .300 in his school work. He is
a new boy.
"We offer Willie as a 'shining ex
ample of what physical examination
work is doing in the public schools,"
Miss Townsend said.
Eighteen school nurses started this
morning to make a general physical
examination of boys and girls of pub
lic schools. Reports will be sent to
parents. Eyes, ears and throats will
be carefully examined.
"We will look them oyer from head
to feet," was the expression of Super
visor Townsend. . i ,

, Whe Is Girl a Woman?
Deaf Miss Fairfax: "A" says that a girl

tor her actions. "B" says that a lrl of
that aits la considered a full-grown woman
who knows her own mind.
Wo would greatly appreciate a few lines
from your pen on this subject 3. O. B.
Btate laws diffor very much on this Ques
tion. Individuals mature at ages which
vary greatly. I have known girls from 20
to 14 who were In no sens mature women.
Generally IT repreaeata youth, not woman
hood and alt youth has real elalm on
the protection ot maturity. I myself feel
that most girls ot St or under are still
children. As for being fully responsible
for ' her actions, a girt who Is as young
as IT surely ha not enough judgment, un
derstandlng of herself, knowledge of hu
man nature and experience to be held ac
countable for everything she does, i Any
man who tries to hold "Seventeen" reapon

blunders la making a blunder graver than

Dear miss Fairfax! i am 21 and em
ployed aa a stenographer In a lro..w s o.
flea. For four months his sor, who Is six
years older than I, has repeatedly asked me
to go out with him. I have always refused,
but recently I went to a theater with him
and to supper. All the other women were
fashionably dressed and I felt embarrassed
because of my plain clothes.
I . am deeply In love with this man and
he has asked me to marry Mm, but because
of the difference In our social positions I
fear that our marriage would be -unhappy.
Should I try to forget this man?
H. M. C.
It doesn't seem necessary for you to for
get the man bat Instead tor you to con
quer your own anobblshness. Ton didn't
dream that yon were one did youT But
that Is exaotly what all your worry about
social position means. If yon are am
bitious, ready to learn and sufficiently mod
est and sweet to reeognlsa your fallings
and try to .correct them, marrying a man
who has greater social opportunities than
you need not handicap him nor humiliate
you. The things yon do not mention are
the attitude of this man's father toward
your marriage and the stats of your own
affections. . Of course I hope you are not
'contemplating a mercenary marriage. That
Vonld be a grave injustice.
Dear Mitts Fairfax: I am passled; have
been corresponding with a gentleman for a
year, but have never met him. We have
grown fond of each ether and exchanged
photos. He wishes mo to come part way
to meet him, aa he aays Be cannot get a
longer leave from his work.
. Now, would It be proper for me to got
Ploase advise me; I am very much wor
ried. It means a great deal to me. He has
been such a comfort to me and so kind. I
don't aaink I ever oould forget blm. O. C
I do not want to spoil your possible
chances ot happiness by being conventional.
But it la a very dangerous thing yon are
planning to do. I do not know bow you en
tered upon this correspondence. It It was
through mutual friends who vouched to each
one of you for the other, that wonld make
a difference. But, In any event, to go trav
eling across the country to meet a. man
ot whom you know ver, little and whom
you have never seen, Is dangerous. Marriage
is a serious thlngv you know, and even If
his Intentions are what the world calls "per
fectly honorable," you are attl taking soma

We Are All Workers for Eternity.
x What Does Your Work Mem to Life?
By ADELAIDE KENNERLY.
Has it ever occurred to you the
average person that we are all work
ers for eternity?
What we do each day seems trivial,
indeed, compared to what some others
are doing; in the world, but that is
because we understand our part while
the other person's part is a mystery.
Art, to some, means the expression
of a superior mind the artist quite
a superior person.
Engineering, to another class, is the
work of master minds, and engineers
the cream of the milk of life.
Music is thought by many to be
a divin gift from heaven and they
feel that the musician is a being in
spired, .' 0 .
But never does it occur to most of
us that the cleric, or tVi i4r,nl.r
or the manufacturer of wooden wares.
or trie boilermaker-or (the telephone
ODerator. or the eWntnr man nr
office boy is just as important in the
Dusiness ot me as trie artt, or
musician or engineer.
Certain minds we ' rightfully con
sider master minds, but the kings and
the clowns are more or less alike.
Each fills a place among people and
each necessary to the other.
.Beautiful pictures add greatly to the
decoration v;a. even the insniratinn
of lif. . .
Music is said to soothe the savage
beast, but it depends entirely upon
the "beast." Whether savage or
civilized, the "beast" must' have an
ear for music else the sounds are lost.
Music, then, cannot be all important.
Engineering has brought contin its
together. It has divided mountains
and given us Brooklyn bridge. En
gineering has turned a group of un
ruly hills into a picturesque litth
city Omaha. Engineering has adde(
to the world's transportation facilities
the elevated railroads, the subway
and great tunnels under the Hudson
river. Yet 'ngineering alone could
not exist. It thrives on a million
If we would but stop to think thai
one person's task is as important as
the other, jealousy over results would
die a natural death. We cannot carry
on this great business of life without
the executives, neither can -e do
without the office boys and all the
folks in between. s
The essential point is, are we giving
to lif j the best there is in us? Ir
we are"s'iuffling through, we are a
cheat, no fitter how high our posi
tion may seem to the world. But
if we glv the very best there is in
uj, even to the mo6t menial work,
then we are an important person.
We ure all workers for eternity,
a:ij every little task means something,
although we raay not understand it.
There is no shame in any work if we
are doing out best. Our duty is not
alone to I'm man higher up, but to the
great business of life in which we
are all workers for eternity.
Removing Ink Spot
Almost every one knows that it is
generally possible to remove ink from
cloth, a white table-cloth, for instance,
by dipping the'stained part, while the
stain is fresh and wet, in sweet milk
and letting it stand, completely im
mersed. Then it may usually be
washed out without difficulty. An
other method of extracting such spots,
which some housekeepers find satis

is to dip the spots in pure melted tal

out the tallow the ink comes along
with it. Still another woman recom
