THOUGHT FOR TIE DAY
If I knew you and you knew me
If both of us could plainly see,
And with an inner sight divine
The meaining of your heart and mine,
I'm sure that we would differ less
And -Clasp our hands in friendliness:
Our thoughts would pleasantly agree,
If I knew you and you knew me.

Hats Off to the Farmerette !
THE farmerette has captured our
hearts, as surely as the big out
doors of which she is so important a
part these days, when our women
must "carry on." Thousands of girls
are finding health and happiness in
this branch of work for Uncle Sam.
The costume for farm work is nec
essarily important, because comfort
means less fatigue and more effi
ciency. This slip-on coat is developed
in khaki. The neck opening may
finish with a lacer'or be worn with a
sailor tie. The lacer is cooler be
cause of less bulk around the neck.
However, a tie of khaki may start
from just under the collar without
extending around the neck. The
bloomers are like riding breeches,
buttoned with a cuff over the knee.
Khaki leggins similar to those our
soldiers wear, protect the legs from
brush and briar, and are worn over
stout-heeled shoes, Oxfords or high
shoes. A wide straw hat is the best

The girl neareet my age came up from
Brooklyn to aee me Sunday. We went
out together, and I introduced her to Home
of my friends. She was all right with tha
glrls, but the language and actions sho
used with the boys was something dread'
I told my mother that I couldn't go out
with her If we lived together, so mother
told me t will have to live outside.
H. A. G.
My dear girl, you have had a loving
mother to bring you up. Rosie la one of

has had no time or opportunity to teach
her the things your mother has taught you.
Don't you think lt would ba only decent
and kind and fair to give Rosle her chance?
Once for your sake, your mother left her

ber own Ufa and go back to him. And.
selfish little girl that you are, you are de
manding that your mother give up her
husband because you don't like your step
brothers and sisters. Suppose you consider
other people for a change and forget your
self. Go and Mva In your mother and step
father's household and try to look upon
yourself ss om-tenth of the family not the

Dear Mies Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I am 18
and correspond with a cousin of mine In
the army. He Is six years my senior. While
on a visit he told me my letters had In
terested a friend who Is In the same camp.
He asked my cousin If he would please ask
me If I would like to correspond with him
1 would like to know If It la proper for
me to write to him. F. C.
This Is an unusual situation, which the
war ia making usual. The high commanders
have made us all recognize how Important
lt la that our soldier lada receive cheerful
happy letters from home. Bo lt seems to
me that for you to write to your cousin's
friend will be a nice little bit of war work.
Don't look on this boy as a possible lover
or sweetheart. Don't write him love letters
Instead adopt him as another cousin or a
brother and without telling htm the posi
tion you have selected for yourself, wrlte
hlm the cheery, friendly letters you would
send to some one In your own family. Let
mother see your letters and his. Keep the
whole thing on a high fine plane, and then
enter In. Ordinarily I would tell a girl not
to write to a boy, of whom aha knew ao
little. But I think each ona of us ought to
try to cheer the lonely soldiers and to make
them feel that there are loyal friends at
home depending on them to be good
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: Through
misfortune my husband has lost considerable
money which he inherited from his father.
For the last five years he has had a po
sition with a firm In Wall street. He start
ed In with flO a week, and for the past
two years has been earning 25 a week,
My little family consists of four husband
and self and two' children. My husband's
peopla glva $15 a week toward the upkeep
of my children, 1 da the greater part of
my laundry work, yet I find lt quite impos
sible to get along easily on this stipend. We
pay $38 a month rent I cannot manage to
get even ordinary apparel for myself.
Would you advise going out to earn my
own living? t have a profession at which
I can earn $25 a week. I really do not
know what to do. I am 111 and most un
Tours la a problem of economics not love.
And yet I suppose that unless the economic
condition changed, love will go. Evident
ly you are not the "manager" type of
woman, and In the process of trying to get
along on your $40 a week you are making
yourself unhappy and cutting yourself off
from being the right sort of wife and
mother. Since for from $5 to $J you oan
get a maid to do the work you dislike.
why not go out and earn the $21 a week,
which will probably enable you to work out
a far more satisfactory family budget?
Work will probably let you find yourself '
again, make you contented and well, and
enable you to bring stimulation and In
terest to your family. I ra afraid you
feel bitter, abused, a drudge. And If you
do, lt will react badly on your husband and
children. Show him the wisdom of u
change the wisdom of your taking up a
gainful occupation which you like, Instead
of struggling -with your household job for
which you do not feel fitted. Don't let htm
think he Is a failure or reproach him.
Instead, make him see that you believe In
him and want to be mora of a help than
you are now. ,
It Wont Do.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I re
cently met a young gentleman through
I was very much Infatuated with his
personality, and would Ilka to know how S
could further our acquaintance.
Tou have put yourself in a dangerous
position. Tou say you are Infatuated with
this man. Don't see him again, and don't
meet any more men In thla way. Tou are
throwing yourself away. Tou don't know
one thing about the man, except that ro t
like his looks. He may ba a very dangerous
character. Won't you believe me and guard
yourself a little better?

"Alas! I know so little," sadly an

in such a queer way up here that he's

had wandered from the flock seeking
a better feeding field. I had found
this pleasant marshy lake where we
now are and was scouting around
looking the ground over for possible
enemies before bringing my people
there. The place seemed deserted and
"Suddenly the silence was shatter
ed by terrorized honks for help.
"Instantly I took quick flight, for
self-preservation is the first law of
the Wild Geese a selfish law of
which I do not approve but necessary
if our species is to live. As I rose
into the air, however, I felt it was
cowardly to run away, so I turned
back to see if I could give aid.
"The honk of distress were com
ing from behind a clump of under
growth close to the water's edge.
As I flew over this clump a fearful
sight was disclosed. There strug
gling in the dreadful clutches of a
cruel Mink was the most beautiful
Goose I had ever seen a Blue Goose
of a species utterly strange to me.
The King paused for a moment,
while big tears rolled down his face.
"The Beautiful Stranger! Oh, how
awful!" sobbed Peggy. "
"Yes, it was the Beautiful Stranger,"
continued the King. "The Mink had
evidently surprised her while she was
resting. She had taken flight, but
was a moment too late. He had
leaped and seized her by the web of
one foot. As I arrived she was strug
gling bravely in an effort to break
away, but the Mink held on tight,
knowing that in a moment she would
be exhausted and then would be easy
prey for him.
"I knew that to go to her rescue
was risking death. I knew, too, the
stern, 'heartless law of the Wild
Geese 'flee from danger.' All my in
stincts told me to save myself and
leave the Beautiful Stranger to her
"Oh, but you didn't, you didn't!"
cried Peggy. "I know you didn't."
"No, I didn't," the King smiled
sadly. "The minute I saw her I knew
that I would willingly die to save
"I thought fast. I had no weapon
that would avail against the teeth
and claws of the Mink, but if I could
force him to turn to attack me he
would let go of the Blue Goose and
she would escape.

I dashed into the face of the Mink,
buffeting him with my wings. He
was a wise, crafty old Mink, however,
and knew her strength was almost

was better than two in the air, and
he tried only the harder to drag her
"Fired by the terror in the face of
the Beautiful Stranger, I made a
bolder attack. I went right for the
eyes of the Mink with my beak. It

was the only way to save my beloved.
