• • • .
I have received so many • let
tars asking me questions about
myself that I have decided to
make this article a little history
sof my life. - • if.
BILLIE BURKE IS MY REAL
NAME. My father wag a clown
in the Barnum & Bailey circus
* When to be a clown meant a man
I should be a great pantomlmist.
I He was rather disappointed whi'u
, 1 was bom that I was not a boy,
and named me Blllie. I was born
In this country and educated in
J England,- My mother Is still alive.
I first went on the stage in Eng
- land, but came over here as lead-
Ing ; woman to John Drew and
since my first season have starred
With my own company.
My home, after my season
closes, is in New York or at my
„ country place which I have re
cently purchased on the Hudson
river. This year is the first sum
. mer vacation I have ever spent in
■' thin country. .
I AM NOT MARRIED NOR EN
GAGED AT PRESENT. I am not
tall, but slender. My hair Is red;
my eyes are blue. My chin is not
pointed as some think; but rather
the reverse, and my teeth are
regular. I have the thin, fair
Skin of my Irish ancestors.
Just at present I am not play-
Ing and am living at my country
home. Early In August I shall
-. begin rehearsals of my new play
"The Mind of the Paint Girl,"
which was a London success last
year and Is the largest production
Mr. Prohman will make this sea
eon. In it I shall take the char
acter of the girl in the musical
comedy and shall sing the song
. called "Mind the Paint," from
which the title is taken. .._
. Some of my readers wonder
why we women of .the stage seem
to know so much about the care
of one's beauty and the effect of
character and personality upon it.
. It is simply because tills study is
: very essential to an actress. We
must "see ourselves as others see
' us" as well as observe feminine
character and characteristics
whenever, we come in contact
•with ■ them. Besides this we must
obey the old biblical injunction
and be "fair to look upon."
Every woman is more or less
of an actress, but It is only as she
becomes a keener observer of life
and Is able to imagine situations
which have formed certain char
acteristics . and certain facial
." langes that she can make her
ay upon the stage.
• » •
JUST ONE liAST WORD—
Tlie keen observation of
others and the physical care
which an Actress gives her*
■elf as part of her business,
could be used to advantage
' by ail women. ; ■ - : .. 4
Do Skeeters or Flies

DON'T BF. A GARHAGK CAN
Dear Miss Grey: lam a young woman of 21, and writing
to you about the same old quest ion, "li«»\v to meet nice young
men." lam fairly neat; looking, ran tell a chicken fts.m a hawk,
bake a light cake, and have ncusp enough to keep quiet when a
man wants (<> talk; but though I am holding M good business j«>-
MtK'n, mill though (he men I roitie in contact with Neeni to like
and re*|n'«'t me, none of them show a preference for me. I . inn
sick and tired of being the receptacle or all my men friends' trou
ble*, f don't want to play the role of sister to them any longer,
lint want to hate the' leading part of sweetheart. How can I
make »lie .static manager of life g*ve it to me?
—You are responsible to a degree for this "non-preference."
Your first step is to stop being a garbage can for your "men friends'
troubles," You are aiding them In being weak, and are creating a
gray, toneless atmosphere for yourself. , -
Certainly you should listen and help trouble —but no everlast
ingly continue trouble. Throw these men you know on their own
manhood, and I lose if yon do not succeed in creating an impression
on at least one of them. .
IXSTAIAMKNT PLAIT
Dear Miss Orey: I purchased an article from an installment
house on monthly payment*. We went away on a visit and being
one mouth behind on the article the Installment house entered
our home. nil limit our permission and took HiUd article away.
Does the law allow anyone to enter your home under such con
dition*? , K. L. M. O.
A.—The company was within the law in taking possession of
the article, providing the contract gave it the right to reclaim It on
non-payment. Your address hangs on the point whether or not the
manner In which they took possession was within the law, and that
depends on conditions you have failed to state. You do not say
whether the house was closed, or someone was in possession. It
you will send a stamped self-addresed envelope and state particulars
I can probably help you more. . . ■
KIGHTH GRADR AND AUTOS
Dear Miss Grey: We are two eighth-grade girls of IS, and
have route to you for advice.
A few evening* ago we were on our way to choir practice,
when ii friend of ours came by in an automobile. He asked us
. if we would ilk* to have a ride and we said, "Yes." Ho Instead
of going to choir practice, as we had .started to do, we went auto
inobillng. Please tell us if we did right.
Our parents are extremely aim' with as, and seem to
think we did extremely wrong, but we acted as respectable as we
should. T\V9 UIiUK-KYKI) GIRLS.
A. —You should have been morn, considerate of your parents,
and of your appointment at choir practice.
There is no harm in an automobile ride; but it does not look well
for young girls to be out at night 'without an older person. They
may behave well, as you girls did, bnt with a chaperone there is
aot room for unpleasant comment. - -
POOH FOOD FOR GOOD MONKY ,
Dear Miss Grey: Will you please inform me if there is such
■ an off ire an a food inspector la tills city, and if so, if ho or -.lio
would have any authority in my case?
It seems almost Impossible to gel a fresh egg served one in
the restaurants in this city. . The <'XX" they serve— you will
excuse my calling a spade a spado—arc rotten. My last experi
. ••nee was today. I was charged forty cents for ham and eggs,
* and both eggs were absolutely rotten. Of course I could not eat
■ them—nor the hum either—ply ate the potatoes and drank
■ the coffee, paid my hard earned forty cents, and got out.
Is it fair for a poor, man 'to be subject to such injustice? . ',
«■•: ' ■ f A i;i: \ lii it.
: A.—The pure food Inspector la 'in the city hall. Every man,
woman and child who has such food served them owe it to the city
to report to the inspector. If you do not, do not blame anyone but
yourself for -being cheated.
muss SHOWS Till: MIND r
Dear Miss Grey: Won't you please write something about
young girls dressing In keeping with their years? I am the
mother of two girls, but find It impossible to realize how atro- -
'cious they look with their hair in buns, and feet in half-soiled
white shoes. I have never seen the latter look clean after the
first wearing.. A MOTHER.
•-■ A.—Young girls are usually hero or heroine worshipers. Find
whether your daughters are. If so, bring to their notice either a
living or extinct heroine, whose bodily expression of mind Is, or was,
beautiful. Also to teach children that their dress. and appearance
is a direct expression of their thought Is an excellent remedy.
• I think girls do not realize how very foreign to all refinement
soiled shoes or clothing Is —and bow out of place white shoes and
gloves are for any but reception | and party wear.
DISCUSSION STILIj WAGING
Dear Miss Grey: I would like to say a few words In re
gard to Minn's superiority to woman, If you can spare the space.
"No Name" and others remind us of a cartoon of Joe Gans I saw
after his last "ring battle." The title, "The Setting Sun,"
showed his gloomy face sliding 1 down below, the bills.: They are I
a gloomy, pessimistic, dyspeptic lot who are spreading their last
gloom over the world as they sink behind the mountain of prog- -
...gress. !y ■. ■'■:'-■ .-.;.,•--". ' •■„ :-: ' •,'■■-'-"'■- : 7 :.: l :>■•■■ :-.-v..
~: Men have strong executive ability only because they have
'been trained along that line for centuries— because they
have any superior mental faculties. Women have been left the :-'
more delicate and difficult task of rearing helpless humanity
■ from Infancy to capable man and womanhood.
. The future American girls will be the saviors of the nation, ■
for with them only lies the power, and they are realizing that
very fast." So. "No Name" and others save your energy. ,; Youf*

"■■ V tors be fined for working the poor girls such hours? 'JA. B. j-'■.'■;■/■'■
tt A.—lt Is every man's and woman's duty to report such cases to
the labor union. Unless such reports are made the proprietors will
continue to overwork the girls, who think they must stand it to get
a place. Girls do not have to endure this, as has been proven. Re

SAN FRANCISCO, July 12.—
Bitter hatred of a brother Is
sending Enrique and Rlcard Ma
gon to a federal prison at Mc-
Neils island to serve terms of a
year and 11 months each for vio
lation of the neutrality laws ex
isting between the United States
and Mexico, according to the
charges of their attorney, Willed
Andrews.
With the Magons go Anselmo
Flgueroa and librado Rivera.
The crime charged was enlist
ing; men In the United States to
fight against the Diaz regime.
On this they were tried in the
federal court and found guilty.
The real charge against them
is said to have been their stead
fast refusal to discontinue publi
cation of the Los Angeles organ
of the Mexican liberal party, "El
Regeneration." When Madero
waß fighting Diaz he was a regu
lar contributor to "El Regenera
clon."
When he won, as president of
Mexico, he disliked the attitude
of the paper. Still feeling
friendly toward the publishers,
he offereel them places in his
cabinet as the price of the dis
continuance. One of the broth
ers, Jesus Magon, accepted.
