For Itching Torture
There is one remedy that seldom
fails to stop itching torture and relieve
skin irritation and that makes the skin
soft, clear and healthy. N
Any druggist can supply you with
Zemo, which generally overcomes all
skin diseases. Eczema, itch, pimples,
rashes, blackheads in most cases give
way to Zemo. Frequently, minor blem
ishes disappear over night Itching us
ually stops instantly. Zemo is a safe,
antiseptic liquid, clean, easy to use and
dependable. It costs only 35c; an ex
tra large bottle, $1.00. It will not stain.
Is not greasy or sticky and is positively
safe for tender, sensitive skins.

Railroad Man Regrets He
Didn't Know of Tanlac
Fifteen Years Ago.
"Just ask the boys at the C. & A.
round house, where I work; they
all know what an awful fix I was
In and can tell you that this Tanfac
has made a new man of me," was
the statement made by Charles Nor
wood of 1413 West Olive street,
Blomington. Illinois, while discuss
ing the medicine, recently.
"I can easily figure out," he con
tinued, "where if I had had Tanlac
fifteen years ago it would have
saved me right around one thou
sand dollars a year, which is a pretty
snug little fortune. The way I fig
ure is this: For the last fifteen
years I haven't been able to work
more than half the time, at best.
When I did work my earning capac
ity was much cut on account of my
poor health and for a good many
years I couldn't work at all. But
if I had been as well and strong as
I am since taking Tanlac J could
have earned twice as much pay to
say nothing of the amount of money
I paid out trying to get rid of my
terrible pain and suffering. For a
long time my stomach never felt
right and everything I would eat
disagreed with me. causing a bloat
ed, nauseated feeling after meals.
This trouble kept getting worse un
til I just broke down completely
and had to stop trying to work. My
stomach got in such a bad fix that
I had to live on the very lightest
foods I could find and even then I
suffered. I had sick headaches about
every day and was so weak I just
had to drag around. My stomach
not only kept getting worse, but my
kidneys finally got all out of order
and I almost went distracted with
pain and misery. My back hurt me
so bad I could hardly move or turn
xver in bed. For a long time be
fore I quit my job it took me some
time every morning to get out of
bed, the pain in my back was so
great, and then I would have to go
all bent over.
"I got to reading the statements
about Tanlac and some of the tes
timonials described my case so well
that I commenced taking it myself
and oh, how I wish I could have
found such a medicine years ago. I
am just so thankful that I am at last
out of my misery that I feel like I
would be doing wrong not to tell
everybody I can about Tanlac. I
can sit right down to the table now
and eat as much as I ever could in
my lift and never suffer the least
bit afterwards. My headaches are
gone entirely and my kidneys and
back never bother me any more and
I sleep like a child every night. In
fact, my troubles are all gone and
not only that, I am feeling stronger
and better than I have in almost
twenty years. I haven't missed a
day's work now since I finished my
fifth bottle of Tanlac, nearly three
months ago. I am now a perfectly
well man and will always praise

A Man's Opinion.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
Just a tew words in regard to the
elf-designated "Innocent, whose
letter recently appeared in your
column. As most of the criticisms
aeem to come from women, let me
give you the views of a mere
As far as "Innocent" himself
concerned, he is evidently a cad,
and If his escapade has not resulted
in the girls getting in trouble, he
would probably be in the back end
of some pool hall boasting of his
The letter signed "Just a Girl
seems to contain the views of a
clean, broad-minded girl, willing to
face the ugly things of life without
prudishness, but she does not un
derstand that there must always be
a double startdard of morals, for
the reason that nature has imposed
a penalty upon women, towit: That
when a woman goes wrong and gets
into trouble she bears visible evi
dence of her wrongdoing.
The matter of upholding the
morals of the world is now and al
ways has been up to the women.
If a woman has to put up a double
fight against herself and against
the man (as your correspondent
says), then she should be very care
ful not to allow liberties at the start,
us the most hardened libertine will
desist when informed that his con
duct is offensive. The trouble with
most girls is that they like to see
how far they can go, and the gen
erally get away with it until they
lose their affections over some dude
and then wake up some tine morn
ing and And themselves In trouble.
Another thing, the majority of girls
nre crazy over cads like "Innocent,"
who probably has pretty manners,
nice clothes, can He to a girl and
make her think she is the prettiest
woman in the world (she already
having a pretty god idea in her own
mind that she is). They do not care
for a fellow unless there are a lot
of girls running after him; then
they try to take him away from the
other girl and have to give more or
less liberties to do it.
1 realize that the sensible girl
generally sits on the porch in tha
evening, talks to papa and mamma
and Aunt Mary and is lonesome,
while the girl who flirts and permits
liberties goes automobile riding
with the fellow and has a good time
in general, but if the women would
get some good old common sense in
their heads, learn that it is better
to Judge a mfu by his reputation
and character, rather than by the
fit of his trousers and his ability to
tell pretty lies; realize that every
man who pays them attentions is
not consumed by an overpowering
love, but may have other intentions,
then there would be fewer girls go
wrong and the morals of men is a
matter that would settle itself.
No Bird for the Cage.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I
thought I'd be foolish to get mar
ried as long as I did not have a
home. I thought get the cage
first and then the bird.
But now I have a house and
home of my own, I find that all the
girls of my age are married around

Bad Company.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I
have been a reader of your column
for quite some time and now I
would like some advice. I would
like very much to help any un
fortunate girl and there is one in
particular that I am asking about.
She is out most every evening until
2 and 3 in the morning, goes to
dance halls and meets men who es
cort her home and she seems to
love to go to such places as public
dance halls, to midnight dinners at
chop suey restaurants. Until re
cently she has been going with a
bunch of nice girls, but they are
sort of breaking away from her be
cause of her actions. The girls
have told her, but she only laughs
in their faces. Her parents have
no hold on her and she doesn't go
with a class of young men who I
would care to associate with..
I am a young man myself, 19
years old. The girl I am going with
and I would like to help her, not
from any selfish point of view, but
for what we are afraid she may
get herself Into If she keeps on this
I would like to have you give
some good advice. I also hope you
will believe I am sincere and any
help will be appreciated.
If you are sincere in wishing to
help this girl, I would arrange little
parties for her benefit. I have no
doubt she frequents these dance
halls merely for the sake of a good
time and a chance to meet young
men. You and your fiancee can ar
range foursome affairs with an
other nice young chap for her, and
if she is thrown with good com
panions and finds Joy in life I am
sure she will forsake questionable
Puppy Love.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I
would like to get some ad
vice on a matter of mine. I
am desperately in love with a
beautiful 17-year-old brunette
maiden. I am but 16, yet, I know
she returns my love. I graduate
from high school this year and I
cannot wait any longer. Her folks
object to my advances, but that is
Just a trivial detail. Would it be
all right to elope when I graduate?
I know we both would be perfect
ly happy. I am anxiously awalt
you reply In tomorrow's Bee. Are
short or long pompadours in vogue
now? How is my handwriting?
Anxiously awaiting your reply,
More tlian anything else, your
question about pompadours In the
same breath with your declaration
of love, gives me some insight into
your character. You are suffering
from what is generally termed
"puppy love." Upon what, pray
tell, would you support a wife and
family at 16? Marriage Isn't mere
ly a holiday. It is the most serious
step young people take. If you Just
wait until you are ready for college,
you will have changed your fickle
mind several times.
Milady's Vogueish Fan
Keep Him Guessing.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I
am 16 years old and have been go
ing with a young man, 21 years old,
for about six months. I love him
dearly and am sure he loves me,
too. Now for my question: "Do
you think It would be right for me
to let him put his arms around me?
Please answer in Monday morn
Keep him guessing concerning
your state of feeling and say "nay"
to the question of embraces.

It is the popular belief that, be
cause of the celebration of Queen
Alexandra's Rose day, the rose is
Her Majesty's favorite flower. This
is not so, however. Her favorite is
the Malmaison carnation, which she
was largely instrumental in making
popular in England.
Dancing has become such an every
day business instead of an event to
be planned for long before and
dreamed of long afterward,
has come to be treated with the
scant ceremony we reserve for the
people and things of our every day
Fans and gloves in the serious
recent years, were relegated to the
past. Nobody dreamed of carrying
fans, probably because in between
the occasional dances one knitted
busily instead of flirting with a fan.
The average restaurant supplied the
guests' need and to public dances
one went free handed and not laden
with a fan that was apt to be lost
or broken before the evening was
half over.
Little by little, as the war clouds
have rolled away, the coquetry and
charm of the fan has been restored
to our lives.
It is rather difficult to reconcile
the typically busy modern woman
with the picturesque clothes worn by
the favorites of the court of Louis
XVI. It is this period of French
history which is being given as the
fountain head of inspiration. But
fortunately for many of us, the new
modes are not restricted tc that one
time in the world's affairs. One can
readily see how these styles with
their panier and their general air of
extravagance will fit in with life as
it is lived after the busy day is done.
During the day we must be clothed
as befits our occupation, but at night,
when our work is done we may be
as gorgeous as we pleas:. .
If rumors become realities and we
should return to the fascinating
black beauty patch and the elabo
rately powdered coiffure, we would
suddenly find that a fan was as nec
essary to our existence as it now
seems superfluous.
The much debated question as to
whether war would result in making
women more masculine in their
dress or whether we would be
come more highly feminized, seems
to be answered. There never was
a time in the history of fashion
when there was less suggestion of
the masculine about women's attire.
All indications point to an era of
femininity, extravagance and luxury.
and that's why fans are fluttering
row and why they receive the at
tention that so frivolous a thing can
merit when once fashion takes it in
Those sketched are all feather
fans but one. The one that is of
gauze stretched on pearl sticks, has
appliques of black velvet rimmed in
silver. In some subtle way the
motif suggests the vanity of a pea
cock although its background is on
ly gray and the velvet is black.
There are many spangled fans, of
cou'se, since the world seems mad
on the subject of things that glit
ter, but after all the greatest inter
est is centered in feather fans.
Tiie large "ostrich ones in bright
colors are still in perfectly good
standing, but there are newer ways
of tis ng feathers as the illustration
shows, and newer feathers than
ostrich to be used; Each of the
three fans shown in feathers are of
the lyre variety and do not close.
The stick in each instance is of
carved wood, the first in brilliant
tade color, the fan being of jade
ostrich veiled with black glyecrined
The idea of using two kinds of
feathers for a fan is rather a new
note this season. Another novelty
is shown in the fan at the extreme
right; a dainty combination of fluffy
white marabou flecked with silver
spangles and black feathery ostrich,
the handle being white. The other
lyre fan is of single ply ostrich in
flaming orange with black sticks.
All the great beauties of all the
ages past gaze down on us from
their portraits, with a wise look of
connivance for their sisters of today
as if showing us how easy it was
for them to fan the flame 1
And their fan message is being
spread through our industries and
fahions, to the choicest and most
coveted of items on the gift list!

clerks. There is war in the air and
never were opposing forces so un
equally divided. On one side are
the solons who made the law for
clerk hire increase and on the other
are the stenographers and secre
taries who have looked forward to
substantial financial promotions
only to find that they are on the
minority side of the payroll, with
only the bonus as a saving grace.
These clerks are in open hostility
and declare that many of the con
gressmen have installed members of
their families who do not lighten
the burden of work, but who do
absorb the greater salaries. And
when this is not the case, they have
paid political debts by appointing
secretaries who do not work in
Washington at all, thus leaving the
brunt of congressional work to the
overcrowded hours of the under
paid secretary here.
Jobs For Their Wives.
"Nothing," said Mrs. Bellah, "short
of an amendment to the clerk-hire
law will remedy the evil now being
done to those who have all of the
work and little of the pay that
should be theirs. Having lost my
own position through a field clerk
who had finished military service,
I became in a sense secretary-at-large,
assisting when required in
various offices and hearing at first
hand of clerks being placed on the
payroll whos ability was mediocre
and of even wives who were , ner
vously desirous of 'helping along.'
"Also I came in contact with dis
contented girls who had toiled faith
fully during the war, some of whom
had been completely backed off the
board by the above type of clerk.
"During the war femininism was
at its best, and at no place was this
more true than in the house of rep
resentatives' offices. The girl sec
retary or stenographer wrote let
ters, visited departments, stayed by
the telephone, sent telegrams to
distracted parents whose sons were
across the seas, and fulfilled in the
spirit and letter of the law, the du
ties incumbent upon the office.
"After Armistice Graft"
"After the armistice, when some
appreciation might reasonably be
expected, a spirit of amazing graft
pervaded the atmosphere. The $3(
200 went in various and sundry di
rections awav from the pockets of
the faithful clerks who had the right
naturally of recognition.
"Young fellows from the district
who had never pushed a pencil, even
female relatives who hitherto had
done nothing in the way cf clerical
work developed an intense desire
for office life. Where relatives are
competent I have no querrel; prob
ably a congressman has the right to
place the whole interesting family
on the payroll, but when one comes
to consider the flagrant use of the
bonus, which has become a veritable
'pot of gold' to the incompetent
membets of the household as well as
being used to pay off political debts,
the situation indeed becomes a se
rious one.
