Look out. little brother, don't Ret too close to that heap of erlsn leaves. They whispered to you nil last summer, don't you remember, as Ions as you stayed at Homo and listened, and when you had gone they peered Into the window of your room and waved their brown hands rit you when you were perhaps asleep and" could not waken. .-The friendly leaves of the old oak, what cheery thlngB they were all summer, al vtiy'fr danolng and slnglns and sosslplng kindly7 among themselves! How thoy loved the rain and delighted in the sun shlno; what pals they were with tho wind, and how they clapped their hands when they heird him coming through tho treetons further toward the green woods!

Tha baby, too, Is more apt to be perfect and strong where tho mother has thus prepared herself for naturo' supreme function.

Advice to Lovelorn. By HEATRICI3 FAIRFAX. H Mut (Set Over It. Dear Miss Fairfax: I am a young gill, 15 years of age. and about six months ago met a young man of -JS. 1 never went with him. as my parents objected to him lx cause he was then out of work, nnd even when he did work could not make a liv ing. Ho never told me that h loved me, but only vaguely hinted at It. He told my friend that he was getting desperate and how much ho loved me. She told him them was no use of bothering with me. as 1 did not love him because of his habits. Now my parents say thut I may go with him, but he already told his friend that he meant to inako me love him to such an extent that I would not he ablo to do without him and then he would let me go and break my heart, as ho has already done to other girls. I now love him very much. A CONSTANT HEADKIt. You have given your love to a man who 16 not entitled to respect. If what your lr end says Is tiut- Ilave nothing to do with him.

Frankly, I do not think this Is truo. While the European woman does use both powder and paint, the young girls ufe much freer from this uffeetntlon tlmn girls of a corresponding ago over here. You seldom see even powder on the face of a young girl nhroad. whllo here I have seen girls of good family, care fully chaperoned and well educated, who have everything that money can bur them, nppcnrlng In public with almost as much paint and powder ns any actress uses on the stage. I have tried to find a reason for this, and think that I have discovered It. Tho young American girl has too much pocket money. Her foreign sister Is glad to have 25 cents a week to spend foolishly, while the girl over here thinks nothing of wnstlng several dollars every week on toilet preparations, candy or flowers for her own adornment. Abroad a young girl seldom gets hold of a well filled purse which sho can spend according to her own sweet will until she marries. It is after marriage only that she Investigate? the rouge pot and the beautifying possibilities of the powder puff. Hefore marriage sho hasn't the money to buy them with. Of course. I'm not talking now about pro fessional people, for powder and paint be long to the actress' trade and are an necessary to her as the footlights are. the lights having made the strong paint necessary. I nm often appalled at the way the young American girls make up on the street. Women past 50 would hesitate to use so much cosmetic on their faces, not only because It Is so had for the skin, but beenuse it makes the face look so old. But then women of 30 are wiser than girls of IS, who revel In whitewash and the reddest of carmine cheeks. A little while ago some young girls waited for me at the stage door after the. matinee. I was delayed a few mo ments by an accident to my car, and so had a chance to talk to them. They were all very young nnd eacli one had evidently Just used her powder puff over her little face, leaving thick traces behind. "Why do you girls spoil your com plexions with powder nnd rouge when you don't have to?" I asked them, frankly. "Oh, made moUcllc. It makes us look so much more Interesting," one of the little girls piped up. "AnyBody enn have Just a regular complexion." A regulur complexion; that Is dis dained! The pretty, healthy skin that nature gave them Is not enough. I am sure what tlicso girls would really like to se semble Is the "vampire" type.

The vampire face started on the stage, of course, in plays where the principal female character was as nearly like n venomous serpent as a stage character can he. The actresses who play these parts affected snnkellko gowns, gray or ashy faces with red lips and very dark eyebrows over darkened eyelids. The vnmplre makeup, as It Is seen In society and sometimes on the street, con sists In covering the face with a gray powder instead of h whlto or pink faco powder; the eyelids aro tinted n sort of brown, the eyebrows are painted very straight and dark and almost meet over the bridge of, the nose. The Hps are made very red and the entire effect is as growsome as possible I am Blad to say that blondes are never chosen to play vampire parts, and, unless 1 went completely out of my mind, I can't think of myself effecting this makeup even at one of your Hallowe'en Senselessness of her former lover, and gave him a photo graph of herself, which her former lover paid for.
