THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, RICHMOND, IND., FRIDAY, DEC. 30, 1921.
PAGE FlVi?- The Middle uround By MARION RUBINCAM A LONG TALK. Chapter 46. Next day there was no opportunity to talk with cither Jane or Amy. I: j was Amy's busiest day; she had ai morning rehearsal. She was to be In one of the choruses of "Alda," and was excited over wearing a long black wig and. a draped robe of white chiffon and a jeweled girdle. And Jane had some laboratory work which took her away all day and brought her home tired. Amy came home with her costume, having begged it from the wardrobe mistress at the opera house. She put it on, wig and all, for the family, glorying in the gaudlness of the great green jewels that bound her head and her waist. She darkened her logs with yellow powder and appeared eo in the living room, her face and neck and arms similarly darkened, with black lines outlining her eyes and extending from the end of the eye toward the hair. "I have made up for an Egyptian down and play.' She hunted up some j music rrom tne opera ana put u oeiorG her sister. And then she danced, a dance that was not classic, nor Egyp tian, but that was simply Amy, Intoxi cated with the joy of 'dressing up." Mrs. Talbot felt she ought to be shocked. But somehow she wasn't She remembered the Greek dance that had eo shocked her. Yet Amy was as little dressed now as then but some how she was not a girl but a picture. Yet she wanted to talk, and knew that if she did not have some of all this mystery cleared up she would not sleep this night either. Nor did she, until physical exhaustion triumphed over nervous excitement. The day after Jane was home in the morning. But, still impelled by habit, "fr Talhnt finished her work first. Then when the whole house was spot less and neat as she could desire, she went into the living room where Jane sat. at work at the desk. In spite of all that was on her mind, she noticed that Jane did not use the frivolous gay colored quill that stood in such a dashing way upon the desk. Jane was working with a' fountain per-, which, when not in use, was clipped into the pocket of her tailored blouse. Even so, when her mind was pre occupied and troubled, she could not Kit quietly and talk, without putting her hands to some useful work. She got out the darning basket and began mending a stocking. There was a si lence while Jane worked quietly. Then, with an effort "I I overheard what you and Amy 'were talking of the other night." The pen stopped, Jane was wonder ing what they were talking ot. ,Then, with recollection, the pen dropped and the girl turned to her mother. "I heard what Amy said, I didn t hear you. You were across the room. Now I want to know all about It. "Why have you and Amy been deceiving me?" " , t. There was pain and agitation in the old woman's tones and in her face. the stockings lay neglected in her lap. Jane's brown eyes never left her mother's face. She was In the weak position of not remembering just whpt had been said, nor knowing just how much her mother knew. . "We haven't been deceiving you, finoiK- "At least, we never Mil. SC1U "'""." ' .. meant to deceive you. But well, u is so hard to explain, mother. ou wouldn't understand." . Amy wouldn't understand! How many times had she heard that phrase and in how many tones of voice from young Amy's nervous impatience to Jane's present tones of tenderness! Everything began to rebel in her at once Then the mother remembered that this was not the way to solve her problem. . "Why wouldn't I understand? she asked, "keeping her voice patient, and holding back all the anger that was welling t up within her. f "You never do, I don't know why, Jane said, still looking at her mother with a mixture of tenderness and con cern. "Sometimes I think you don t want to understand us, mother. Amy comes to me with everything, and I tell her everything, too, and we both know all the troubles that are worry ing Luther. But. won Va haven't meant to keep them from you. Only we thought It was kinder not to say anytning Decause you don't under stand and the thine-s wo talk ahmir simply hurt your feelings." , mere was silence. Then "And we love vroi trtn mnoh in want to hurt you.' Anger melted before this. But the hurt the girls had tried to save their mother was a thousand times worse now. And when anger melts .tears follow. Hot drops rolled from her eyes down her factfinding a pathetic channel in the deep wrinkles of her cheeks. "I must understand," she began, her voice uneven with sobs. My children have grown away from me,, there ways are not my ways. I can't " she broke off, unable to continue. Jane swung around in the chair, one elbow resting on the desk, and her chin in her hand. She' stared out of the window awhile, then she began. "I'll tell you the whole thing, moth er." She stopped, wondering how to put it so this old-fashioned woman would not te hurt. Tomorrow Jane's Love. Keep Your Dates Straight MJPf A 7 rri turnA KENT ANOTHER CHAT ON FACE STEAMING At various times I have talked so much against face steaming that many readers think that I do not approve of it at all. I do approve of it In modera tion, as I wrote the other day. I do not approve of steaming the face every day nor for a long period at a time, nor holding the face, over very hot steam. The mild and sensible method of wringing an old towel from hot water and holding this over the skin I think Is quite as effective in opening the pores. There is no danger of dry ing the skin too much or of enlarging the pores by this method. But if you have a -very bad com plexion you can steam your face in the following manner with splendid re sults: First, rub the skin full of sul plur ointment ;then, holding a towel over the head, eo as to keep in the steam, bend over a basin full of very hot wa.ter. The heat wil open the pores and the healing sulplur ointment will get in its work more effectively than if you massaged with it This is particularly good for pimples and eruptions due to impurities in the blood. After the steaming wash the face with hot water and soap, so as to remove the ointment, then rinse in hot and cold water. If you are bothered with blackheads try this same sort of steaming, but use a cleansing cream. Rub a Quantity over the skin first then steam it in for -several minutes. As the nores oDen under the action of the heat the cream works its way in, softens the hardened mater which forms the blackhead and cleanses each pore in a way impossible for soap and water to accomplish. Incidently these methods of steam ing do not dry out the skin. But I only advise them in extreme cases. One principle that no man can af ford to neglect is that of always keep ing his engagements. If you can be relied upon to do what you said you would do, when you said you would do It, your value in any line Is enhanced thereby. And if you cannot be relied upon, no amount of brilliance will make up for that de ficiency. To keep your dates straight you need a calendar just as much as you need a watch.

H.: A girl 16 years old 5 ft 4 in. should weigh about 120 pounds. Mary R. R.: Your daily face treat ment is a good ordinary cleansing treatment, but if you have blackheads around the nose you will have to use a little more than soap and water. You can use the cleansing cream you have and wash with hot water and soap or you can use the blackhead cleansing powder, a formula for which appears from time to time in this column. Over-eating does, indeed, effect the complexion. No one can have indiges tion and a clear and healthy skin. The Mai?

All Inquiries addressed to Mrs. Forbes in care of the "Beauty Chta" department will be answered in these columns in their turn.

My par ents object to the engagement because he is not making enough money to sun them. Ho did make good money, but now he Is only working half time and, of course, we cannot get married un til he is in a better position to do so. He told me that he was so afraid one of the other fellows would get me that he couldn't wait to ask mo to marry him. He is 26 and I am 23. Do you think I should break my en gagement from the man I love simply because he is not making a lot of money? It is very nice to feel that there is only one man in the world for me "ami now when the others call up and ask me to go somewhere 1 can tell them no. DOUBTFUL. 1 do not think you should break your engagement. Worthy men from coast to coast are 'linancially depressed at present. Many of them will work faithfully when they have the chance to work, and after conditions become more favorable they will again make xood salaries.
