The Lenten season it, so far, a
beautiful one. There are some who
are observing the real, old-fashioned
Lent as the really devout people
know, but there are many who have
modified their observance to the
extent of allowng themselves the
theaters, the concerts, card playing
and dining. With these simple
amusements they are keeping them
selves busy. There are, too, balls
to be managed. One large one for
Mi-Careme and several for Easter
Monday and the fiaster week. The
mid-Lenten ball is the "ball of the
nations," for the benefit of the pop
ular home charity, Neighborhood
house, and it always draws largely
upon the old resident circles and, of
course, the debutante set. The Eas
ter Monday ball is the Army and
Navy league, one of the largest of
the charity balls of each season and
always one of the prettiest. It is
then that the winter ball gowns,
limp and otherwise out of commis
sion, have been given up and the
spring and summer evening clothes
are fresh and crisp. This year the
Easter is so late that it will seem
almost summer time.
Congress scattered very com
pletely last week, everybody being
tired out, and the senators and rep
resentatives and their families, es
pecially those without young chil
dren, were all more than anxious to
get home. Senator and Mrs. Hitch
cock left early in the week for
Augusta, Ga., where they will spend
some little time with the hope of
benefiting Mrs, Hitchcock's health,
which is still very delicate. Miss
Hitchcock remained in their Wash
ington home and is busy with the
Riding and Hunt club, riding almost
daily,' and always at the Tuesday
night. rides, known as the allied
rides. ' Saturday morning Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas F. Logan gave a hunt
breakfast at the Chevy Chase club
following the paper chase, which
started from the club house at 11
o'clock. Miss Hitchcock is one of
the most skillful of the riders.

Br BEATRICE FAIRFAX
Dear Miss Fairfax, Oman Bee: I
am a boy, 15 years old. We want
you to settle a bet, I bet her a five
pound box of candy that Jess Wll
lard never fought after he whipped
Jack Johnson, but she says he

us is right? HERMAN C.
I don't know an "Inning" from a
"backstop" In sports, but our sport
ing editor tells me that the following
information is absolutely and posi
tively correct: "Jess Willard boxed
10 rounds, no decision, bout with
Frank Moran at Madison Square
Garden, New York City, March 25,
1916, 13 months after defeating
Johnson. Also boxed two-round ex
hibition with Soldier Kearns at
Plattsburg, N. T., August 8, 1916."

Walt' Until You Love.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
Reading much of the good advice
you give from day to day, ask that
you advise me when you read this
missive. My age is 38, although I
cherished the love of my school days
in misfortune. There was a rich
girl that played the havoc, for I
loved a girl of moderate means. The
lch girl would visit our country
school under an assumed name,
dressed and dolled up, when I be
came sweet with her, and the girl
I love became jealous. So time went
on until we became of age; condi
tions the same until I was taken
Into the church, when the rich girl's
attention ceased, leaving me alone.
Since manhood I have been intimate
with but one girl, who showed me
a picture of her "Idiot," as she call
ed him, where she went. As I am
honest and trustworthy and ambi
tious, would you advise me to marry,
as I have some means, If I was so
disposed? H. W. S.
P. S. Also would you advise mar
