Organdie Over Char
By GERTRUDE BERESFORD.
Organdie is not content to remain
classified as; so-called wash mate
rial. It insists upon being made
over slips of charmeuse. Midnight
blue and black are very popular
shades for these slips, over which
are worn white, black or rose or
gandie blouses and tunics. Even
bronze charmeuse is called upon to
furnish slips for organdie frocks of
peach tints, old blue and ecru. This
organdie model is rose, trimmed in
circular inserts of val lace dyed to
match. The swirls of lace show
cut-out discs of organdie through
which the midnight blue charmeuse
gleams. The satin runs only to
camisole height but shows beneath
the full tunic in a stamped skirt
The sash of this frock may be rose
or midnight blue velvet ribbon.

, Advice to the Lovelorn
Love Comes Unbidden and, "To Love or Not We Are
No More Free Than the Ripple to Rise and Leave
, the Sea."
: s By BEATRICE FAIRFAX
A Practical Joke.
Dear Miss Fairfax. Omaha Bee:
My attention has bee called to an
article of yours bearing my name, in
the columns of the "Advice to Love
lorn," Omaha Bee, of July 3. I
do not cater to any such advice and
will say this much that I did not
write you any auch letter, or any
other kind, and never met any such
girl In Omaha that I could take such
a fancy to and spend tsuch an en
joyable evening with, then forget
her address. My hired help Is en
tirely satisfactory to me; I am not
a bit lonesome, as work Is plentiful
out around this place and I have
plenty of companions. When I
want to marry, I can assure you I
need not resort to any such method
as going through the columns of any
newspaper for a wife.
Would you be so kind as to send
me the original letter and envelope,
as I may need it. Some one Imagined
they would have some fun at my ex
pose and will be surprised to find
themselves carrying the burden upon
their own shoulders. Hoping that I
may hear from you by return mall, I
remain, yours very respectfully,
Sorry, but I do not keep a file for
these letters. I do remember, how
ever, that the letter was poorly
written In pencil. There Is nothing
more contemptible than a practical
Joker and I presume an acquaintance
thought he was doing something
clever. Really, these practical jokes
come from the Ignorant minds. Do
not let the letter cause you any em
barrassment It isn't worth it.
A Poor Boast
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I
read your "Advice to the Lovelorn"
every day and it Interested . me
greatly. I am now coming to you
for a little advice myself. I am a
married woman of 21, my husband
being 36. I also have a little girl of
11 months. My husband goes out
quite frequently to dances and other
places, and as I cannot leave the
baby, I often ask him to stay at
home. He gets angry and goes any
way, saying that no woman shall ever
rule him. Do you think that is fair?
I went out of town a few weeks ago
and came back sooner than I ex
pected. That same day a woman
called up here for him. I am sure
he is untrue to me, as bo many
things like that have come to light
What would you advise me to do?
It is absurd when a man hi order
to demonstrate that a woman can't
rule him, goes out to dances, leav
ing his wife and year-old baby at
home alone. Everyone who is en
dowed with a mind capable of func
tioning,, like to .keep it in running
order, but lack of consideration for
others, and particularly bad conduct,
indicate neither a man's indepen
dence nor Intelligence. They may
be-glorious proof that a woman is
not ruling him, (for we think she
would give him a better steer), but

than to encourage you to do every

P. S. I am 14; five feet, three and

A girl of 14 should not be think
ing about riding with boys and her
sister. An occasional outing is all
rights but frequent pairing oft is not
the thing for children of your age.
Mary Flckford's best picture is a
matter of opinion, ."unnybrook

however, praise the work she did
in "Daddy Lbnglegs," a recent pic
