Soldiers Enjoy Thanksgiving.
Some amusing stories are told of
incidents that occurred while enter

One well known family which lives
in the Field club district, has a young
lady daughter at home who is one of
the most charming society girls in
the city. Two soldiers were enter
tained at dinner at this hospitable
home and later, attracted by the
ideal Thanksgiving weather, they
started out for a stroll with the young
girl. After walking for a few mo
ments in silence one of the boys stole
a" glance at his fair companion and
then remarked to the man on her
"Gee. aren't we the lucky guys?"
Another patriotic family in ' Dun
dee provided a bounteous dinner for
several of the boys in khaki and after
the meal, aa the time seemed to drag,
they proposed ride. They rode
ihrough town and out into the coun
try unii! nearly dark. They turned
back, thinking surely their guests
would ask them to artfp them down
town somewhere. But, no, the guests
stayed on. The host took them back
to his home for supper, and still the
boys lingered until the hour began
to grow late. Finally the hostess
could stand it no longer.
"I'm afraid that you will miss the
last car to Fort Crook," she
' "Good night," her guests responded
as one man, and made a bolt for the
door. The poor boys were really
anxious to make their departure in
the afternoon, but didn't know just
how to accomplish it hence the long

Be kind to your, shoe j. ;They may

Nothing appreciates little attentions

First get 'them a pair of trees. It

may sound like an' added expense, but
they earn their cost. Then again,
shoes are as. sensitive about their

apply it every night, they will keep
their new finish,, indefinitely. For a

buy them a new pair of laces or set

I And when you are "walking "along

toes of your shoes against the. curb.
Wear rubber heels and change them
when they get run down. 1

Advice to Lovelorn
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
Dr Mis. FairrsIPAm a yUIt,hadj;i
at SO years and ara eolne about lth a.
young man four yeara my senior. As I am
sitre I will .receive a- Christmas gift, could
yoV pleas. -advis me? la U.rop.er fr
me to return a gift to "?
not enraged? If proper, what would ba
suitable? Hop to aea thla raaloon ,
If you know what kind of reading matter

fully selected. Nothing more.
Longing for Affection.
Dear Misa Fairfax: I have had a hard
time all my life and really was deprived of
going out much in my younger days. Mw
It so happens I met a man to whom f ve
taken a fancy. At first he seemed to like
me, but now he tries to avoid me. I enn
say frankly he Isn't worthy, because he
doesn't hold a good position and Is very
poor in conversing, still t would overlookv
all this. I can't seem to concentrate my
mind on what I'm doing. essie.
There la an ld Hindu proverb which
reads: "This too shall pass." Now, back of
that proverb Is the wisdom of all the age.
The most terrible sufferings are dulled by
time. Tou have Idealised this wan because
you are an emotional creature who it long
ing for love, but don't deoelve you,re!f about
the aituatlon what you feel a great many
other women feel. But If necessary, anjr
strong woman can conquer and live dowji her
emotions, and there Is alwaya the possibility
that aha won't have to that her capability
for feeling will be rewarded by the gift of
love and understanding much more splendid
and worth while than the emotion aha tried
to realise by giving her unasked devotion to
an unworthy man. Now, my dear, atop
thinking about yoursolf. Oa right- straight
down to the Red Cross and enroll for soma
war werk. Never mind about your own
hard )ot--put your mind on the tremendous;
sufferings all over the world and sea what
you can do to help alleviate that' Please,
pleaee, take my advice, and three montba
from now you will look back on today's suf
ferlnga aa morbid and self-eentered. I know
them seem real but you (and you alone)
oan conquer them. ' .
A Hard Position. i
Dear Misa Fairfax: I am iS and for
five yearn have been going with a young
man two years my senior, during which time
ha has had a hard time working his way
through college and supporting his mother.
I know that soma day he will be successful
financially, for ha la clever and a hard
worker, but at present he is barely able to
aupport his mother.
He has told me very often that he loves
me, but has never asked ma to marry him.
I have noticed that you oft advise girla
to go about with other men in instances
of. thla" sort, and, I have tried this, but my
friend appears to be quite sad at my doing
so. yet he says that he cannot blame me.
Shall I give him up? Nearly everyone
thinks 'we are now .engaged, and if! con- ,'
tlnue to go with him I know I shall lost
several other chances of marriage.
Toura is a very difficult position. Natur
ally a fine man who le barely able to sup
port hla mother caiW.ot ask a girl to marry
him. He has ro assurance when he wtl) be
able, to support his mother comfortably
and, still less can he know when he will
Lbe- able to take' care of a wife. His position.
you pe. is just as. trying as yours. I am
lntllned to think' that you will hava to
saorifloa some of your pride and reserve Jn
ordar ' to make' him realize that Jou care
enough for him ic wait until he" has proven
hl.-iself. Ilia unselfish remark that you ara
not to be blamed for going about with other
men la a pretty good "lead" for you. Next
time he says it. why not assure, blm (if you
are sure in your ov; heart) that you would
be proud to face an dlffloulty at the side
of the man you love ? , ,

Did it ever occur to'you that
all jewelry is not genuine that some is
the creation of scheming persons who want to
'trade "buttons and beads" for your gold and
silver as in the Indian days?
Jewelry is the, ideal Christmas gift, but
it must be genuine to be ideal.
The trade-mark above is the mark of
quality and identifies Omaha's reliable jewelers.
It is just what it says "truth in. jewelry" and
