' Advice to the Lovelorn Today We Have Miss Fairfax's Letter on Rouge and PoV' der and "Painted Dolls." Watch for C. O. A. "He is Coming Back- By BEATRICE FAIRFAX To rouge or not to rouge, seems to be the question of the day nl:h my readers, and, as promised. I shall give an analysis, or a trip with memory back through the history of make-up. Billing the time of our mothers' youth, only women of the stage and questionable character rouged or powdered. It waa considered dis graceful for a "nice" woman to fall to these depths. Yet since the days of Eve women have wished to be pretty! and at tractive. . And, wait a mlnure before you blame them! Men demanded that they be attractive and pleasin to their masculine fancies. Oh, no, they did not demand It In words; They stormed about' rouge and powder! . They denounced it as a wicked custom! They swore vengeance on members of their own household for condoning the use of it. But, while preaching against it, they were Secretly and otherwise, admiring the women who "touched up" without overdoing it. They smiled at them, talked with them, flattered them, and, very often, lost interest in their wives because of them. Then friend wife spunked up a b)l and tore from her last summer's hat, a petal from a red, red rose. She moistened- It between her lips anil tinted her cheeks. The effect was so pleasing that she flew to the starch box and dusted her nose. Presto! The pale, tired looking woman, was a healthy, smiling crea ture, whose eyes seemed brighter and whose youth had apparently re turned. Then hubby said: "How sweet you look tonight, dear!" Baby lisped: "Pretty mamma." And soon' all the petals from the roses on last summer's hat were gone and another box of starch was pur chased. A Discovery. Starch, It was discovered, clogged the pores and the rose petals wero not always the same shade. A few women bought cakes of magnesia, instead of starch and others discov ered that red cambric and crepe pa per made good substitutes lot youth's departed bloom. Time means progress, however, and as new compounds and Inven tions along other lines came onto the market, so did talcum powder and rouge. While it was perfectly proper for "nice" women to use a bit of mag nesia and artificial rose petal, it was strictly taboo to purchase anything so vulgar as a product labeled "rouge" or "face powder." "Oh, yes, we have a small cake of magnesia on our dresser," they would coyly admit, "but we wouldn't think of uslhg rouge and powder land sake, no!" And yet we know that regular, honest-to-goodness rouge and pow- For baking cakes, cookies, ginger bread, bran bread, candies of all kinds, either the GOLD LABEL or GREEN LABEL Brer Rabbit is splen did depending on your personal taste. When a light color and milk flavor is desired, GOLD LABEL Brer Rabbit is recommended. For a darker color and stronger molasses flavor, the GREEN LABEL is generally used.

Penick & Ford, Ltd., New Orleans, La. NOTICE If my readers wish it I will write them a letter on Miss "Tony's" kind of women; other wise. I shall let the matter drop. CO. A., however, did not mean what many of the readers think he did. Perhaps his letter was 'not clear. He will break into print again shortly. B. F. der did find Ha way to the dressing tables of millions of perfectly nice, respectable women, who were neither trying to catch other wom en's husbands, nor degrade them selves in any way. They were (ana are) splendid mothers, good house keepers and loyal wives. They laugh, now thatyrouge and powder are part of the toilet necessities, to think how disgraceful It used to bs to use expensive cosmetics while it was considered modest and all right to "sneak" a , bit of cambric and magnesia. Morals and Complexions. Most everything is a matter of custom. Morals come under a dif ferent classification and have noth ing to do with complexions. Let us remember, too, that while women were tampering with their appearance, men were not neglect ing to oil their hair; to have It cut in the latest fashion; to have their trousers creased and their faces powdered by the barber. They were doing quite as much to make them selves pleasing to the eyes of tht world as were the women. Now they have their nails manicured, their mustaches trimmed and take as much care of themselves as do the females of the species. Personally, I think if you wish to use powder, use the best and most becoming. The woman who tries to cover her acts with "Oh, I just use a cheap little powder" isn't succeed ing and Is, very likely, injuring her skin. Smearing of paints, on cheeks and lips, is objectionable. It isn't pretty and looks worse than none at all. If you wish to use these things, be an artist and use them well, or not at all. To me, it is no sign of virtue to look like a "gray mouse" neither is it a sign of beauty to be streaked with paint. Beware of the boys who shout that they want their wives to be sweet and natural. Be sweet, yes, and be natural if your cheeks are rosy and your eyes bright. If they are not, well suit yourself, but lei me whisper into your ear that many a girl has lost in a race by betting an sne naa on "nature ' winning. I am not advocating the use of powder and rouge, neither am I de nounclng it. Women who have good complexions are blessed. Indeed, but they should at least be kind In their criticisms of those who are less for- f"7 99 tunate and must turn to the rouge pot for their blushes. Don't confuse morals and virtue with powder and rouge they are no kin at all. A Joke nut to the Point. The following Jetter was intended for a Joke on the rouge-powder ques tion and it tells the truth about some pots that call kettles "black:" Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: We are two girls and we enjoy read; ig the Lovelorn in The Omaha Bee. In answer to C. O. A.'s letter about "painted up dolls." We do not be lieve in "painted up dolls" either. We always use flour for paint. Halt water for hand lotion and lemon juice and water for face cream. For shoe polish we use grease and soot. And when we go out on the street we wear our brother's old shoes, our Pad's old hat and mamma's old dresses. E. Q. and II. O.
