Letter from a Woman Living in His Home
Town. Take Your Choice 1
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX-
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
I am aware of the fact that you pub
lished my letter, written in reply to
the letter written by S. F. E. I am
also very much aware of the fact
that some of your readers have been
offended by what I wrote. The sub
ject of the unfortunate, much to be
pitied, fallen women, and their fre
quent use of rouge, never for one
moment entered my thowrhta when
I wrote the reply to S. F. K. It will
be remembered that in her letter
was voiced the opinion of herself
that the girl who used powder and
paint' and whose appearance was
flashy, was the- one sought for by
most men, and that she, being just
a plain, every-day girl and wore
glasses, was passed up and only
considered by men as a good little
I wanted to express my own feel
ings to Miss S. F. E, and had I
known of her address I feel sure I
should have written her personally
just as my letter appeared in The
Now, girls, those whom I have of
fended, please let me explain my
self if possible. I am just one of
the ordinary kind of fellows you
meet in every-day life, and there is
not a man living that respects a
good woman any more than I do. I
do not make a practice of criticiz
ing girls for every little thing they
do, any more than I would care to
have one of my own sisters criti
cized by some other person; how
ever, this much I do know, and so
do you: The girls of today who use
powder and paint to extreme do not
command the respect of the men
that the girls do who are not "made
up" and flashy looking. Why, girls,
do you know that a fellow, I mean
a man of today, will form an opinion
of you the first time he meets you,
whether you are formally intro
duced, or Just pass you on the
street. The first glance he gets of
you gives him an idea of what you
are, morally, I mean. Now, lt
your lips are smeared with paint,
powder on your face and neck,
which, as it often happens, is on un
evenly; eye lashes blackened, some
times beyond where the lashes are
what do you suppose flashes through
that fellow's mind? No, it is not
natural for all men to be foul-mind
ed, please understand that I am
aware of the fact that all girls who
use rouge and powder are not of the
fallen type; but, girls, it looks bad,
for we men know and you should
be informed that it's the women of
the under world that use rouge and
powder to extreme t"o attract tho
men. It's a human fact that it be
speaks of evil as clearly as a red
light points out that something dan
gerous is close at hand and should
be avoided. ,
Tony, you are wrong in your opin
ion of me. You, as well as others,
got the wrong meaning from my let
ter. Your point was well raised
and I admire you Tor the stand you
have taken. I don't believe in
kicking a fellow when he Is down
any more than you do, and there
Isn't a doubt in my mind but what

An Opinion of Mr. C. 6. A.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
The letter written by Mr. C. O. A. in
The Omaha Bee prompts me to
write just a few lines in the defense
of a real woman.
I think if one was to look intotthe
question Mr. C. O. A. has in the
paper and find out what he was, he'd
be a gambler, he smoked and al
ways kept his eyes open for these
painted and powdered up dolls, and
I suppose if Mr. C. O. A. would
stop to think he has the powder on
so thick you could brush it off with
your. hand, and fix up and struts
around like a chicken with its head
cut off. .
I think he's made a great mis
take in this expression trying to
write advice on painted up dolls
when he doesn't know anything
All the girls are not perfect. I
know. But we do know that most
of the girls are as good as the men.
If you employed your time farming
Instead of knocking on the painted
up dolls, and If you would try to
help them to do right or give them
a chance to do right again and help
her out of her misfortune, . you
would be more thought of as a gen
tleman. L, M. A.
Key to Rnpplness.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am a Lin
coln reader and enjoy very much
your space in the paper. Some
things are very amusing and some
times I feel sorry for the silly girls.
Tiease let me say after reading your
piece in The Bee Wednesday, whtn
tho right man comes you know it
I was only 17 when engaged and just
past IS when I was married. hail
many friends among the boys and
they all treated me fine and if any
of them got smart, it didn't take me
long to tell them what to do. !f I
went with a boy who got smart he
never got the second date and he
generally knew why, but was always
a friend. I have been married eight
years and our love keeps growing
moie every day. We never had siUv
q;ifcr:clE before we were married and
don't have them now. We always
made it a rule to tell each other
what we did, as he lived out or
town and no one could tell tales on
us, as some people always like to
make trouble. -Although
we have been married
these years, we have our friends.
have always been good friends with
boys and young men and I expect
to keep them. My husband has
many good girl friends and they aro
always our friends. I am Jolly and
full of fun-and that's that mak?s
you the best of friends, but always
sincere and you are always thought
much of by girls and boys both We
are always at university parties and
dances and enjoy our fraternity r.'.en
much. A LINCOLNITD.

piness and contentment.

Dear Miss Fairfax: I am 17 years
Old, fair complexioned and eonsi.l
ered quite pretty. Now Miss Fair
fax I am deeply in love with a young
man 1$ years old. But all the other
young men in my neighborhcod iove
me very much. . I only care for this
one young man. I would like for
you to tell me how to keep their
friendship without having them love
me. I have tried not to attract at
tc-ntlon, but they still love me. 1
am engaged to be married to this
young man, but cannot cook or sew,
He says that does not make any dif
ference as he can afford to hire
help.' Do you think 1 should marry
him? I remain anxiously awaiting
an answer. BROWN EYES.
This is certainly a deplorable con
ditipn. Treat the young men coldly
perhaps their ardor will cool. By
all 'means learn to cook and sew he-
fore you marry, lt Is most Important.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
We are now asking you a question
which we wish for you to answer
in the Friday Omaha Daily Bee, as
we are very anxious to know. What
does it "mean when a boy winks at
a person? How can one tell when
a boy loves you? Should a girl of 15
let a boy put his arm around you?
Winking is a sign of impoliteness,
that is all. Have no fears, the
sterner sex are always able to ex
press their affection If they feel any.
No girl, 15 or otherwise, should al
low a boy to put his arm around her.
Come Out of Your Shell.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
I am a very serious-minded young
girl, and for some reason I do not
seem to care to mingle with young
folks, but prefer to stop at home to
read or knit. Mother continually
scolds and "nags" because I refuse
to go to dances, etc. Several young
men have escorted me home from
church, but for some reason they
do not call on me again. Now. what
I would like to know is, why they
do not call, for i am sure that I
have done nothing to. make them
think I do not care for their com
pany. My brother says that I am not the
kind of a girl that the boys care to
go with because they all prefer the
gay and light-hearted ones.
Now, I am perfectly contented
