THE SPOKANE PRESS HAMLIN DEAD BEAUX ANOHOW TO EARN THEM BY DOLLY BI.YTHE. of course a girl likes to have beaux. Why shouldn't she? It's only girls who can't catch beaux that turn up their noses at them. There are so many places where girls can't go without beaux, that no beaux may mean no fun. And what has a girl to live for if she can't have a good time now and then? The reason many girls have no beaUX Is because they have an Idea that all a girl lias to de Is to sit down and wait for beaux to flock about her. There ls where they make a mistake. Beaux must be earned, Just as bread and butter has to be earned. They have to be worked for, Just as all other good things in tlie world have to be work ed for. You don't believe it? Well, Just stand around and watch the young widow march off with the catch of the crowd. Or see the experienced girl monopolise the most attractive young men. They have lived only a little longer than the rest, but long enough to find out how to work for the nttentions and adoration of men. Here are some rules for winning beaux: Don't say hateful things to one man about other men. Be nice to every man you know, and just as nice to all the girls. Don't simper and smirk when a man speaks to you. Don't be too cool; treat men cor dially. Tell them when they call that you are glad to see them. Don't blush DOLLY BLYTIIE. and gusli over It; say It as you would say it to another girl. Be glad if two or three comes at a time. The more popular you seem to be, the more popular you will lie. Above all tilings, don't have a fav orite. That means the possibility of a husband, and girls who like beaux, Without any present desire for matri mony, mustn't encourage a "steady." Nothing makes the beaux take to their heels faster. Be reaily for any Innocent fun that comes along. Accept and go in for any little pleasure the beaux plan for you. DON'T "SPOON." Be jolly and have a good time, but "hands off" is the policy of the girl who wins ad mirers and keeps them. Men love to talk about themselves. Learn to listen to them. When tlie man comes again, remember to ask about his doings and his plans, and see him shine, Be good natured. Never get cross when another girl walks off witli a crowd of admiring men. Go along With* the crowd. You may find out how she does it. Make the beaux go home reason ably early. They will think all the more Of you. If one happens to sulk over it just remember that you me getting your beauty sleep and mak ing yourself more attractive to men who have more sense. Learn to dance, learn to skate, barn to cook and learn to do every thing well. The more tilings a girl Can do well the more beaux site earns, Baking bread may be buying beaux. Last, but not least, learn NOT TO TAKE MEN Too SERIOUSLY. When they Jolly, jolly back, Make them prove they are in earnest he fore you bank on their lasting affec tion. GKAWD UMI.
