Sunburn Is an ailment, an adorn
ment or a proof that you had--get
that, HAD! the price of two weeks
at the sea shore.
And, by the way, we've got to hand
it to. Old Sol. When he starts out he
certainly does things up BROWN!
Many admire and covet a nice
coat of sunburn. Their personal
tastes vary from the tint of an old
Mexican saddle to the delicate blush
of a roast-beef-rare sandwich.
At summer resorts persons with
white cuticle are as much at home
as a pale-face at an Indian srmke
Here's a good receipt for sunburn:
First take a dip in the briny. Re
cline on the sand, broken glass and
assorted lunch relics from noon until
four. Then add more water and
That evening you have all the sen
sations of lolling on a bed of roses

friends is well, a cat o' nine tails
is a whisk broom compared with it!
Young women returning from their
summer vacations have a hard time
reconciling evening dress with sum
mer tan. "One can't unhook one's
coat of tan like a sweater. As a rule
the tan leaves off on the neck some
distance from the place where an
evening gown takes up the melody.

the girlie's skin look like a hiking
shoe that got lost in an alkali desert.
But never mind, girls. Any one
who makes fun of summer tan is Just
a jealous boob who doesn't know
that tan is a sign of health and out
door life. Such a low person hasn't
the price of a vacation and takes his
outings in one of the city's six best
' 'cellars" rathskellars.
You should worry!

Not that it is important but some
what newsy it is well to announce,
that Willie Hearst is disappointed as
to all parties and is going to create
"an honest, sincere, radical" party
wherever there is none. Just as of
old, it takes- only two to make a
