The stories really had me worried, but I am not by nature a George Ado timid spar row. Neither could I vlslonlxe my Buenos Aires visit as being passed In the privacy of my boudoir. The first day here I took the plungo and started 'out thrlllfully at ono end of the Florida. I arrived at the other a terribly sur; prised (I won't deny disappointed) and unpincnea person. Since then I have sallied forth dally unattended, and have yet to experi ence any untoward unpleasantness.

Also do we recall that a certain prom inent real estate dealer In this city early displayed signs of the abilities which have made him a successful gatherer of land later In life, by amass ing the unheard-of total of 600 baseball pictures. Also do wo know (by hear say) a famous gambler who was expert in ''matching" pictures In early life. Then came the picture post card mad neis, Of course, there were Insanities less universal working In between times.

As they pass by In their elaborato frocks and frills they feel slighted and discouraged unless they leave a wake of admiring glances and ecstatic gasps of "hbrmosa" or ' slmpatlca." You cant Dinme mo poor things for being grateful for a little masculine attention on the streets. That's about the only time the men ever notice them. Buenos Aires Is In deed a man's town,, and wives and daughters are used mostly to adorn tho home. Almost all the smart break fasts, banquets, and functions at tho Plaza, the Jockey Club or the Paris Hotol are stag affairs, while stagna tion Is tho usual lot of tho women save for the wild excitement ef go ing to tho opera, or to church.

Now the United States, with Its usual deslro to take things wholesale, has fallen madly In love with the Russian ballet, and anything savoring of Uakst and his Influence Is welcome with shrieks of Joy. During the summer appeared signs of what was coming. Any vivid combi nation of colors could be excused be cause It was "one of those Bakst ar rangements." Later tho colors shaped themselves Into odd designs, savoring of the motifs used In the costumes for "Scherezade," "Cleopatra" and "Prince Igor." Modeled Upon Ballet Russc. Now there aro gowns and cloaks that are related to the Ballet Russe cos tumes Just aa closely as practicable. The swathing glrdlo of Cleopatra, with Its Intricate tracery of Egyptian animal gods. Is tho center of attraction In one gown of black velvet with the designs in Jet over yellow. It Is unusual for tho strip of heavy embroidery extending from tho deep glrdlo to tho hem. Though the width of tho frock at the hem Is moro than three yards, the velvet Is so heavy that the designer has succeeded In at taining tho straight up and down ef fect that most of the Egyptian belles strove for. Fluffy ballet costumes of voluminous tulle have already found their counter part In the dancing frocks so popular last season..

A cheek filled with crimoon color may be a thing of beauty aa well' as of Incon venience. Diogenes once saw & youth blushing and said, "Courage, my boy I that Is the complexion of virtue.' Whether the boy was a brute, a crim inal or merely a bashful lad Is another ttory. However, the Latin poet-philosopher, Terence, comes to his rescue when he cays alt-Is safe when a man or maid blushes. In childhood, the ventle blush of meas ure or modesty tints the face. In youth, the heart's meteors go a-tlltlng o er the cheek, and In older people shame, con fusion, joy or love may oe tne oudious flag signals' which may mean either of two contradictions. Physically and hy glenlcally upeaklng, modem physiology goes even further, for It proves that a man or maid who blushes Is not quite a brute. Most people who are bashful feel the pain of fancied scorn and undeserved disdain when the more hardened and haughty Individual perceives nothing but his own pleasure. Needless shame and self-Imposed dlsgraco never taunt the tatter, whereas the former needs must bear those marks upon his blushing face. There are blushes and blushes. The human emotions control Im pulses, and tho Impulses In turn send a flash or spark to the arterial stream.
