First of all, I will ask that the editor
would be so kind and give you a

you may give this, sincerely yours.

Dear Miss Fairfax. Omaha Bee:
Do you think that paint or rouge if
it is put on nicely ruins a girl's
reputation? I do not mean too much
just when a girl uses a little.
Rouge and powder might ruin
your akin, if you use a poor quality,
but I cannot see what its use has to
do with your reputation. However,
make-up is largely a matter of lo
cality. In New York, and large
cities through to San Francisco, wo
men use a great deal. In Omaha,
and wany other places, very little is

Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I

with William Russell and Mary
Miles Minter, but I have been so
busy with my school work I dropped
them from my list.
Please do not disappoint me, as
I will watch The Bee very carefully
each day until I discover their ad
dresses. I am waiting patiently and I am

I am sure you were much more
busy than these stars and they must

v Dear Miss Fairrax, Omaha Bee: I
have often lead your good advice to
others and am coming to you for ad
vice. I have a sister living in a dif
ferent state and she is making good
wages and nhe never sends me a
birthday present or Christmas
Now she is going to get married,
and if you was me would you send
her a wedding present?
I will close, hoping to see my let

Why need you warp your disposi

Certainly send her a wedding pres

heart which will grow into generosity.
A Minister's Wife.

Imagine myself as a minister's wife,
walking up the aisle with a solemn
look on my face and behaving like
an angel the rest of my life, as I am
so wild and full of fun. I could
imagine myself as a safe cracker's
Now, Miss Fairfax, do you think
If I marry this man I could settle
down and behave myself as I
Hoping to see my answer toon, I
remain, THE HOODLUM.
Why need a minister's wife, or the
minister for that matter, be pious
and hypocritical? Be square and

up the aisles with you face drawn
Into pious lines and your fingers
tipped as if in prayer.
