She was flattered
When he held
His loved one
In his strong arms
i And gazed into
The proverbial "blue lakes"
Brushed back the ringletts
From her beautiful '
Pink and white face
"The greatest work
Of the Almighty"
She believed him.
And she thrived
On pretty compliments
- Alighting here and there
First on the highly curved
Then the lovely
Pink-tipped and soft.
As the dream-girl
Wended her way
To the marriage altar
On the arm'
Of her paternal
Visions of Paradise
Floated before her
Time races madly
And takes with it
The bloom of Youth.
Then the matron
, Begged for the trutrj.
She longed to know
- The truth
The real truth
Nothing but the truth
The big strong man's eyes
Still saw only Beauty.
But he continued
Until she demanded
And GOT it.

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."
; By BEATRICE FAIRFAX
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
Aa I have been a readier of the
"Advice to the Lovelorn" 1 thought
I would ask you for advice. I am
a widow with three children and
would like to know if I could get a
place as housekeeper for some lone
some widower. I have no home of
my own and It Is bo hard to try to
make a living and take care of my
children. I have had several
chances to get married, but I have
not found the right party. Bo I
would like to see if I could get a
place out on a farm before Septem
ber 1, so I can send my children to
school. I love country life and I like
farm work. WORRIED.
There are many farmers who
need housekeepers and I might be
able to help you if you had fur
nished me with your name and ad
dress. It is a waste of your time
and mine to send in such letters as
these without enclosing name and
South Dakota Girl I most cer
tainly could not advise a girl of 15
to run away. If you think life is
hard at home, Just remember that
it would be much harder and more
dangerous away from home. Be
tween now and your 18th birthday
try to fit yourself for some remuner
ative work. Life is dull for the un
educated and any little girl who
leaves home at 15 is running into
self-made sorrow. Spend the next
three years in concentration and
education. The trained mind can
solve very difficult problems. Your
letter indicates that while your
story may have good thought, your
technique would be so faulty that
no publisher would accept it. Those
who advise you to send it in know
nothing of the market.
Mcrry-Go-Round Causes a Breach.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I
have been reading your "Adivce to
the Lovelorn" and thought I would
write to you about my troubles.
I know a very nice boy who is
bashful. One night when we came
home from town he Said he would
be over next day. He didn't say
what time and I didn't ask him, as
I never thought about it. I stayed
at home all the next day, but he
did not come. My girl friend came
for me to go to th merry-go-round
which was in town. As we were
going he was coming home from
town, and as he went in the door
he looked at me. I did not see
him the rest of the evening, as he
did not come down. Did I do right
or wrong, and If I did wrong, shall
I go to his home and tell him?
Please tell me what to do?
If you are still at the merry-go-round
stage, you are not entitled' to
sentimental problems. I'll answer
your Question, however, assuming
that you have at least reached the
ripe old age of 18, and were merely
going down to the merry-go-round
to enjoy some of the classical music
usually rendered at such places.
This seems to be a mlsunder-
stnding about the hour when the
young man was to call. Tou did
not do wrong unless you had rea
son to believe he Intended to come
in the evening, In which case you
should have remained at home to
receive him. Since there is a pos
sibility you were In the wrong, it
would be all right for you to men
tion the matter to him at some con
venient moment, saying you were
at home during the day, expecting
him to call, and asking if It had
been his intention to come in the
evening. This will give him an op
portunity to explain, and you can
judge from what he says whether
or not he was properly considerate
of you. There are bashful people,
especially among the youthful In
years, but bashfulness Is not an ex
cuse for peevishness, which springs
from a bad disposition, or stupidity,
which is a tragic handicap.
Outside and Peroxide.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
We are coming to you for advise.
We are girls of 14 and 17, and we
are about the same site in height,
and people takes us for twins.
This is what we want to know:
How long at night should a boy
stay out with the girls after they
arrived at the girls home? (1) Is
it proper for them to sit outside
and talk? We girls are popular
over boys. But we don't let them
kiss us good-nlght, which they
don't think is right of us girls. (S)
What should we do about it? (4)
Does peroxide take out the hair?
Excuse our writing, as we are In
a hurry. Thank you in advance,
respectfully, WAHOO GIRLS.
Too bad you drag your town Into
the case. I am sure it is not respon
sible for your lack of knowledge in
the simple matters upon which yoa
seek advice. If a young man escorts
a girl home from an evening enter
tainment, It is quite proper for him
to bid her good-night when they
reach her home. If he does re
main, it should be for only a short
time, and then preferably in the
house, where there are adults whose
presence is felt Tour stand on
the good-nlght kiss is a credit to
you. Have you enougn strength of
purpose to live up to it? Peroxide
takes out color of the hair, but does
not take out the hair Itself. Don't
use It unless you want to look un
natural and Insincere.
Dear Miss Fairfax: We are two
girls of 18 and 14. We are consid
ered very good looking by every one
we meet. We have brown eyes and
dark curly hair. We have many
close friends of both sexes. We are
both about S K feet tall. ' Should we
wear our aireaeea above our knee.
Should we braid our hair or leave
it In curls. There are two boys Just
arrived in the neighborhood whom
wo would like to meet. How would
you advise us to get up to them?
Are green georgette dresses ap
propriate for girls of our ages?
Thanking you In advance, we are.
Toots and Babe.
Silly children, wear your hair Id
curls as long aa possible and let the
boys alone for a few mere' years.
You will only make yourself ridicu
lous by forcing your attentions. You
should be having playmates Instead
of thinking about meeting come new
