Pink Net and
First Food Administrator
It was back in Bible times that
the office of food administrator
came into being. It is recorded that
"the dearth was in all the lands; but
in all the land of Egypt there was
bread. . . . And Joseph opened
all the storehouses, and sold unto.
Egyptians; and the famine waxed
sore in the land of Egypt. And all
countries came into Egypt to Jos
eph for to buy corn."
History is said to repeat itself,
and today, assuredly, all the world
is thronging to America, even as in
that former time it came to Egypt,
for to buy com. Had it not been
for a second historical repetition,

this dinner gown, which is made
over a foundation of -silver lace. A
sheath-like slip of this lace is en
veloped with two panels of net
that hang straight from a picot band
that outlines the neck. This band is
plain in front like a yoke that ties
in the back in a little bow. The
gown is sleeveless save for large
armholes outlined with crystal
beads. These beads hang loosely
and give the ef

Learnard Painter, a Missouri

cerning a certain sort of 'food he
has found in France:

Of the sogginess of bogs
And had the odor of. --

Beneath the crust a thickness
Of war-insured nourishment

It had been the flour of France
Grain of the fields
Fiber of the woods and weeds
Chaff that the wind blew not
And sundry things.

And the baker,
A shrewd man in his way;
Made it hard
Like war
And called it
War Bread.

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-
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
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
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

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

And yet we know that regular,
honest-to-goodness rouge and pow-

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.

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

are part of the toilet necessities, to

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
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-
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.
