The Spokesman's Secretary firing the Fetters of Mame to Mom By Uf'TON SINCLAIR IN WHICH ! MISS ANOTHER HALF DINNER Dear Mom: < >f course I was on pins and needles all day waiting for Mr. Edgerton to • Jill me so a I could find out what had happened between hint and his And just when I was done of the wne. work ami ready to go out .beauty parlor he then L Adair»' Huggins to g»> to a show with h< i and all the girls is getting rm»re and mote sorer because 1 am so up with them having an affair and not telling phoned and late K'e with I had to break a stage with a gentb'man them nothing. Spokesman is a very moral man and there!ore somewhat suspicious ami it would not he possible to persuade Him that it was just for my ideas that Mr. Ed gerlon was taking me to dinner ami anyhow if it was true it would he worse because it would insult Him to know where His ideas comes from. Well Mr. Edgerton took me to the again and we et some ■ chop-guey ami there watching us and we had a And he says that Mrs. angry she says she ak to him again, amf i she tells him that she is going to write t«i the Spokesman about how her husband is taking a mani cure girl to dinners with him and pretending that this girl giv«<s him Hi*' ideas that the Spokesman has to say to all the newspaper of the whole world, if she does that it will mean that Mr. Edgerton will he out of his job because of course the flunk place was no de in»»r* tective good chat. Kdgerlon is so will never sp* thei re(K»rters Ami of course ,s will And so Mr. Edgerton is very much worried and I says to him, "Do you really think that she will do such a mean thing? He says, "I do not know for possible to say what a woman do when she is very angry?" 1 says, "Yes it is possible," I says, "if you do not mind answering me a very personal question," "What is that Miss Riggs?" "Will you tell me whether Mrs, Edgerton has got any money of her own ?" "No she has not." "Then Mr. Edgerton," 1 says, "youi may rest «juite easy for she is not going to say a word to th» Spokes man nor to anyone else that will tell because don't you see that if she done that she would he throwing her bread ami butter in the mud?" I says. Hut she is frightfully angry Miss Higgs almost hysterical." "That is all right," I says. "Hut when a woman gets hysterical she always kc«>ps one corn*'r of her brains that know what she is doing and why. Edgerton has got a swell I apartment and an electric coop and! a s«(uirrel-skin coat and all them tilings is very nice and what is mak- ! ing tier angry is the idea that l am j getting a part of them away from , her. Hut that is not going to make her give up the rest," I says. "Really now," he says, "you are too j cynical about women. "No," 1 says, " , ' hut women have had 1 to g«>t what they have got fr«»m men i •ml they have ha»l to leam how. But | maybe these is things that it is not r; rht for women to tell to men so if I yon <lo not mind I will talk to you about the Spokesman and what He j thinks about my idea that He should , have a lot of pictures took showing Himself as a farmer's Boy hack on j the old home ;t»'a«i. Well he tells me that h<' has talk-! much enthuse«! shout it and thinks it will he a great publicity stunt. And He is going to sen«! up word for them to water the I ay on tlm old place an«l grow it just as quick as they can and when it is high enough He will take His piivale train with about a hundred newspaper reporters up there and they can take pictur«'s of the great Man ruling a hay rake and that will uurely he better than riding an elec trie camel. Amf Mr. Edgerton says lu has .puk«' t») (h«' reporters also and they are keen about it and one of them has got the promise of a picture of the Spokesman with His arm about His favorite cow that he milked whim He was a boy and when tin general manager of the Amalga-. united Press Association or something lik«' (liât got wind about what they was planning he telegraphed for a life-sized picture of the Spokesman h ailing old Dobbin home from the pasture. Mr. Edgerton says it is a shame that hay grows so late in them ur tic regions and there is no way you can imitate it in a motion picture dudio. Am»' then I says, "Look-a •• •'ii about tho id «'a with the Spokes man who is very bere Mr. Edgerton," I savs, "I have got a crow to pick with you and now is the time." "Did you get it out of the chop «»:<', he says because of course he is leeling j«dly over that idea I have given him and what, a blew it will I" I" Senator Buttles that gtew up in a town and went to a college and is no good at all for the old home st»'ud stuff. "But ttiis is no joke,'' 1 says, have ha»l it. in mind ever since you »enl out that story about the S|Mikes man buying a dozen help the What 1 want to know is has He hon estly bought them?" "Well Miss Riggs," lie says, think wo ran feel reasonably certain that He has hecau e he is fifty-three years old and He surety must of 'Haight a sp. ing suit every four years! »if His life, "That may Ik ,'' I says kind of shocked, " but that is not what any body is going to make out of that story Mr. Edgerton it was meant to he took that He had bought all them ■mils this year. And what l have ig«»i to say to you is 1 have always t>en brought up to tell the truth and thought Hint 1 was helping to get the truth told to th«» plain people ami if them that is in charge is all cynl* cal about it then 1 could not he happy an«.' I would rather have nothing «Io with it Well Mom he sees that l am seri ou» and he says again that 1 am just lik«» th*' Spokesman I have a natural drop reverence f«tr great hieals and that is why I am able to understand Him so goo«i. "Yes hut then why "I pring suits to wholesale clothing tiatfe. ■ does He let you give out stories about Him that is not true?" He thinks for a while ami then he says, "Miss Higgs I am going to ex plain something to you that at first you may find hard to understand. There is a difference between public and other life and there is a kind of truth for each, I think may be it will be asier for you to under stand because you tell me that your mother was once an actress." life " Yes," I says, "she was a great ae tiess site played Eliza in Uncle Tom's Cabin for many years." "Well," he says, "then you must «if been to plays ami maybe behind the scenes and you know that a play can he (rue as a play and yet it don't have to he true in other ways. For instance suppose your mother is playing the part of a young girl well she makes up that way and she pre tends to he happy and the auefience is all delighted and they get a truth out of that play. Hut it may tie that really youi moher is older and has got children at home and one of them lias got the croup—I believe you told me one of them had—and your moth er is not fe»ding happy that night at all yet she has got to play that she is happy because that is the play truth but if she was to act the real truth and cry on the stage why she | would spoil the show amf the audi ence wouhl not get the truth of the play at all and they would go home | N f|." j j j j Hut I Of course I can see that, says, "This that we are talking about is real life—" "Hut are you sure? he says. "Sup pose you was to get hehin*l the j scenes and discover that this game of politics is another kind of a play and that everybody in it has got to pretend that they are different from their real selves." Well of course I am kind of stun ned and he can see it rny my face and j he says, "Hoes that shock you so I much?" he says. "Don't you see that the people have got to have ideals they have got to believe in great men?" "Yes," I say a, "hut aren't there no real great men?" ! "There is now arnl then a great man." he says, "but he is very scarce and most generally you will fiml that 1 lie is not available for Spokesman, | There can h« a thousand different | reason« maybe he is not acceptable , to the Knights of Columbus or may j he he was horn in Kishineff or may ■ he he believes in evolution or maybe ' his wife has divorced him or maybe none of the big hankers is ever met him. .So you have got to take some i»o«ly that has been careful and not made no enemies and then when you have got him you have got to the best you can by him and the daughter of a famous actress shout«! ought to understand how much a skillful make-up and the right cos times can do to say nothing of a highly skilled press agent and a how. »in good la»ly assistant," he says with a Hut his little compliment don't help him for I says, "Then you are all th«' time fooling the plain peoplel" 1 says, "Miss Riggs," he says, "you are a serious young lady and I want you to stop ami think what would happen to this country if the people was to lose their reverence for the Spokesman that lives up in the big white house and tells them what to think and what to do?" would Hannen but Mr. Edgerton he says, "Iiuok h»'r»' I have got a piece out of a paper from a town in nidille west ami there j from that town that come to Wash | ington and he sho«>k the hand of the Spokesman and then he w*'nt back home and when the word g«>t out that he h id actually shook the hand of the Spokesman the members of his lodge j passed a resolution and they stoo«i him up bv tho Uoof and every one 1 of the seventy-five irmn in the lodge I filed by him and shook the hand that | had shook the hand of the Spokes man. Amf that is what you call Faith Miss Riggs that is having an ideal • and if ail ihetn seventy-five men was to lose it what wouhi happen to them I the whole seventy-five wouhl get | drunk and go home ami boat thei wives." And he goes on, "Yes, Miss Riggs," he says, "it wouhl mean riot and red rev». luth r>. You can go and ask any el then BuShivikis if there is any thing they would like better than j have the American people get the idea that the Man they have got for Spokesman is a poor little Feller v ith carroty hair amf a sallow skin that suiters from constitutional timi dity ami has got where He is al W«dl of course I cant think what th»' was a man 1 ways waiting for His mind to I»«' made up for Him— Just you ask th 1 Bolsh'vikis and hear them with delight." "Mr. Edgerton," I says, "you must know I have never met no Bolshivikis and don't never exp«»ct to." i history of the American drama," says. "Because in this here political I play there is no way that the Under study can ever have a chance to , hearse with the rest of the company, one minute He is just a sort of call j boy sitting out on a cracker-box and I the next minute He must put on full j regimentals and walk out into spotlight and make a speech. And that means Misk Riggs a most dread 1 ful problem for the rest of the cast that has got to get behind and sup port Him and for the atago-directors and the scene-shifter all the critics that has got to write up the show next morning. Ami that to is the God's truth about my job and why I have got to have help so bad amf you as a good loyal citizen and the daughter of a great actress has got to understand me and help me with your great experience." Well Mom of course l am floored. All I can <lo is to sib there and at *'tn whoop "There is a plenty of them," he says right here in Washington D. C. some of them is in the Senate ami I tell you it puts a grave responsibility on you and me and other loyal Amer icans.

D is hnhhed, naturally curly, and some what oily. I have been using lemon after a shammio. hut it does not keep my hair light. Everybody says I should have my hair bleached, as I have a naturally fair complexion. P.ease tell me of something harmless that • cun use indeli*rlately without j danger. • • •• M. L, M ♦ In my opinion, when blond, hair begins to grow dark, the wisest thing to do is to let naUme take its course, because it looks 100 per cent better when it is dark than when it is bleached, and there isn't a woman in the world who deceives t y otic but herself about the true color of her hair. It is a fact that we use cosmetics qu.te obviously, and we have grown so accustomed to pink cheeks and ruby lips that a face without make up looks wa heel out and faded. But v bile a touch ol rouge and lipstick gives freshness to even a mature face, ilyed hair has a quite different effect It hardens un«l coarsens the face, makes every line deeper, and every blemish more prominent. 1 know of no bleach that will not dry and kill the hair if used con stantly. Of course, preserving the natural color of the hair is <)uite . different from bleaching it. Some-1 times an egg shampoo is very good for keeping hair light. Four <m gs beaten up are used in place of soap for «'leansing ami lathering The 1 mon rinse, while recommend ed usually as a preservative of the light tints, it rot as satisfactory, as a rule, as it is claimed to be.
