Dear Miss Grey: • We are only sailors ami our station is a
• very lonely one, but to most of us this is our life work. Wo are
all deeply interested i,. your good work -and all 'wish y,,ur
opinion of this mutter. . « . - J •
We are members of the crew of the life-saving tug Sno.
liomlsh, now at the navy yard. Our crew consists of 40 men
Tlieir records are good, there being very little drinking among
them. In spite of this, we are insulted by the people of our
home port, which is Port Angeles: Although the majority of us
hold good positions in the service, we arc looked on an an In
ferlor grade of animal. , . ...
All of oar stores are purchased here, and most of our pay
goes to tlie merchants. One Saturday night an ofricer in walk
ing up the street, with his wife was set upou by three iuen who
came out of a saloon luid knocked him into the gutter. Three
other men were mistreated,that night, and in each case the atr
tack waa unwarranted. ,*•.,...
•* The people are divided Into two classes. One class is known *
as the 400. We have most of our trouble with this crowd. The
rest of the people are not so had, and I can truthfully say some
of them treat us with respect. ', -.
, .A number of the men are married and have -wives with
I them. The women are subject to cold receptions wherever they
fc go. Three members of a notorious barber shop Hlaudered these .
women and even iniiulted them as they passed. The police re
fused to take hand, and the harherM were forced to desist only
after some of the men had gone up town and threatened to
wreck the shop.. ' s "." c-
The government at one time ke|>t a fleet stationed there;
but withdrew it because of the hostile attitude of these same
people. • % .. CRKW I'OHWAUI).
A.—lt is true that all sailors suffer for the misconduct of a
few, Just as other classes do; but people who act as described above
, lire far worse than the average eailor, and as bad' as the worst.

Dear Miss Grey: To read the letters in Cynthia Grey's
page of the I inns nowadays one would - think the young men
had turned traitors to the young women and were seeking their
downfall, rcmeml>cring that of old man has been a constant
protection to woman, and correctly, he should be. It is rather
difficult to comprehend such a change in society. The mothers
of the nation feel that they cannot trust their daughters with
*" the young men, and judging from the remarks men on the
streets iii.il>.- to girls und about girls one would conclude the
mothers* fears were well founded. * .
' Young man, take a tumble to yourself. You imagine your
self brave and smart to throw familiar remarks at a young
woman as.«li<* passes you on the street corner where you are
occupied killing yourself with cigarettes and weaving cob-webs
in your deluded brain. You are not brave; nor smart. You are
"" a coward, and ignorant. You are" a coward because you have
Iseif brave and smart to throw familiar remarks at where '
woman us sin- passes you on the street corner wliere you are
occupied killing yourself with cigarettes and weaving cob-webs
in your deluded brain. You are not brave; nor smart. You are
a coward, and Ignorant. You are a coward ltccause you have
not the nerve to approach the woman in the nlmosphere where
she rightfully belongs and delight in helping her to remain
there, instead of trying to drag her down to your level, only to
leave her stranded. v* 1
Can you blame the mothers for wanting to watch yon? Oh,
no, you don't want the "old lady" sticking around. Well, if. the
•> "old lady" Is wise, she will "stick around." Young man, you
are a fool! Instead, enjoy life with the young woman on a
higher plane, a pleasure wherein the mothers can also partici
pate. Hold her high In your estimation. Keep your love for
her elevated. If you must go to h • through your own choice,
you should, in justice to humanity, give the young woman, tho
future mother of our race, a chance to choose . for herself
which direction she wishes to travel. JACK. -

*" Dear Miss Grey: What would you do if you were a man and
your wife whom you loved, respected and supported well for
two years, ran away with an old sweetheart? Would you shoot
her down with him, or would you try and win her back? Reinem
her, I love her, God only knows how I love hen Thanking you
for your advice, " BROKKN-HEARTKD.
A. —I would not shoot her down because 1 would only hurt my
bwn character. It could not possibly hurt her, and there is no need
*"pf your punishing him. . He will bring that on himself.
If you really love her, and think it would hurt her if you kill
the other man, end do it, then you do not love her.
Your work is with yourself. To get over this hurt so wrongly
Imposed on you and to continue your man's work In the world In
■plte of it. It is hard I know; but you can do it.
Dear Miss Grey: Can you, through your columns, find
someone that has seen a clam crawl? .
" Years ago I saw a clam crawling with the hinge straight
up, sliding on the edges of the shell like a i«ir of runners, the
shell being partly open and the tough, muscular wedge piut of
the body stuck out, manipulating itself along in a sliding man
ner. It could go fast<enough to beat a snail in a race.
I have never met anyone who has seen such a thing, there- g
fore all to whom I tell this, seem to think I am mistaken, and
some go far enough to insist 1 had a "pipe dream." If no one
- but me ever saw a clam crawl, I shaUalways know it is a fact;
but would like to find someone who could • verify that state
ment. • i *: WEBFOOT.

Now. Miss Grey, ho says he loves me and shows it in every
• way; but whenever we go out my motlier goes with us, and he
says he wants her to go; but sometimes he acts mad at her;
but when lask him«if he wants her to go lie always says "yes."
Do you think a man 23 really love, a girt 1«? Please let me
know as I love him dearly. . 1' STUBBORN.
A—Yes. sometimes a man of 25 really loves a girl 16; but you
are too young to marry, or to promise to marry, and your mother
knows A girl of 16 rarely knows what love it, and mistakes emo
tion for the real thing. He Is probably your flrts lover, and I would
advise you to follow your mother's guidance for a few years. -:
Do not notice his moods, and if he truly loves you, he will wait
for you until you have at least completed your education." My dear,

"One of these little marinettes

citizen of the French revolution."
liv Mali McGlone <(>ihson.
New York City, Oct. 23, 1912.
The New York soiiety woman
will never confess that she pat-
ronizes a depart
ment store for
clothes. "I buy
my gowns of
Louis c," she
will remark Im
pressively. Or
pc r h a ps it ie
"Jeanette" - or
"Cecil c" she
mentions, for
you must know
that all the ex
clusive dress
makers on Fifth
Avenue are only
known by their
given names —
not necessarily
MUS. GIBSON. the ones Given
their by their
parents, but more probably the
ones given to them for euphonis
tlc advertising purposes.
So I visited several of these
shops in my hunt tor fashion gos
sip to write to Times readers.
You are seated in a dressing room
done in Louis XV style, and after
you have told the languid young
woman in a trailing black char
nieuse gown exactly what you
want your dress for, one is
brought forth for your inspection.
If you decide that you do not wish
it, it is carefully taken out of
your sight before another Is re
Do not think, however, that
the best things are shown you,
unless you come with some cus
tomer of the shop. You might
possibly be a rival dressmaker
trying to steal the exclusive style!
If you mention to Madame that
you have come from one of the
department stores, she will take
little interest in you, except to
say that no exclusive models are
ever shown there. She does not
want department store trade.
Brocaded goods are being used
more and more for ceremonious
Kowns and wraps; in fact, I saw
at one place a white brocaded
velvet negligee trimmed with
swan's down, and a white la # cc
cap to match. This to me seemed
the height of luxurious extrava

Turn the rascals out—the
headache, biliousness, indigestion,
constipation,' the sick, sour stom
ach and foul gases—turn them
out tonight with Cascareta.
Millions of men .and women
take a Cascaret now and thon and
never know the misery caused by
a lazy liver, clogged bowels or an
upset stomach.
Don't put In another day of
distress —wake up refreshed and
feel fine. Let Casearets cleanse
and sweeten your stomach; re
move the sour, undigested and
moat beautiful combinations is
the popular taupft and silver.
Taupe is exceedingly becoming to
every one who has a clear com
plexion, but the wrinkled or
blotchy-faced woman should be
ware of it.
\ civet trimmed with fur is to
be the great mode of the winter,
and after taupe the color most
popular among the exclusive;
Fifth avenue shops is brown.
At a number of these little
whops they do not show you full
sized models. They bring out
the c-unnlngpst little life-like
dolls. On these the dress is
made with every detail of the de
sign in perfection.
At one of these places I saw a
most interesting exhibit of how
Dame Fashion appropriates the
Ktyles of other days and even the
other sex to adorn her feminine
votaries of 1012. One of the
little marinettes was brought
out dressed as- a Citizen of the
French revolution, and Madame
kindly pointed out to me the
many things in this costume that
women a«3 wearing today; there
was the high,, turnover collar
which revealed the neck across
the front, the collar which we
know as Robespierre; the frill
and the wide revors which we
find on many of the newest coats;
the cut-away fronts to the coat
and the very long sleeve with the
lace falling over the hands, and
the style of using a different col
or for the coat from that of the
trouser, as carried out today in
our different colored coats and
skirts. The brocaded vest is
also seen on many of the street
and afternoon costumes.
Th% American dressmaker is
not making her gowns much
wider around the bottom, al
though there are many over
draperies of different kinds which
make them seem more volumi
j nous. The pannier has fallen
away from the hips.
I do not know what the win
ter will bring forth, but now no
one on Fifth avenue is wearing a
collar. If warmth is needed they
swathe their throats with furs,
which were never so luxurious or
so plentiful. A fur collar across
the back of the shoulders while
the throat is exposed two inches
below the collar bone in front is
a somewhat incongruous, if fasci
nating, sight.
fermenting food and that misery
making gas; take the excess bile
from your liver and carry off the
decomposed waste matter and
constipation poison from the bow
els. Then you will feel great.
A Cascaret tonight will
straighten you out by morning—
a 10-cent box keep* your head
clear, stomach sweet, liver and
bowels regular and you feel
cheerful and bully for months.
Don't forget the children —their
little lnsides need a good, gentle
cleansing, too.

A bit daring? Well. Perhaps.
But you are looking at it, aren't
you, and way down deep iv your
h*»art you are going to turn back
to this page and look at it gome
more. All right. Go ahead. It's
absolutely proper, because Da,mo
Fashion says bo.
The suit you see Is a straight
line affair which makes the figure
look adorably 'ayl,ph-l»h" without
being in any way unpleasantly
tight. The jacket is the handy
hip length which can be slipped
on In a hurry over a silk waist or
a shirt walßt. It is constructed
very much on the lines of a Nor
folk, excepting there isn't any
lx>lt; it is more dressy and la a
little closer fitting.
The skirt Is cut in the very lat
est mode tapering from the hips
to the hem. That's about all.
Oh, oh, of course. Yes. That
cunning, dashy, almost-wicke-a
-not-qutte snip way down on the
right hem.
Its primary purpose, honest
Injun, is UTILITY. Indeed it Is.
In short, it's Milady's only safe
guard if she wishes to walk with
any sort of comfort in this taper
to-t he-hem costume. It adds
width without increasing the cir
cumference of the lower edge of
the gar^nent.
The divided hem, for that's all
It is, has a clever trimming of
piped »atm in -white, and is fin
ished off with two sprightly self
covered buttons in the same color.

Beauty Behind the Web of Fashion;
Art of Drapery Adapted to the Veil
Is the VEIL a preservative equal to shrimps and raw eggs?
Recently It was reported that the "divine Sarah" had attribut
ed the wonderful preservation of her looks partly to a diet of
shrimps and raw eggs. Though she staunchly denied the allegation,
the rumor has raised the question on the value of different articles
of food as beauty-preservatives, and with it the moot question of
the veil.
Does the veil of intricate and pronounced design enhance or
mar the beauty of the wearer? There is only one answer to this
when the observer is looking at the clever model pictured, who is
wearing a fine mesh veil through which runs a large vine-like fig
ure. She not only shows the veil, but also the most approved man
ner of wearing it. It la drawn neatly around the hat and the two
upper ends lire tied In a small bow at the back of the head on the
hat brim. It -i« an adaptation of the drapery idea which prevails
iv today's fashion world.
The rest of the veil is allowed to hang straight down over the
face to the. chest line, the sides slanting out over the shoulder. The
grace and effect of this sort of veil deinnids on the way it is worn.
It will be up to the city next
summer when it begins using
