TITE BEE: OMAHA, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1913. The .ee' fme Ma2-11 pa f e Marrying for a Home Qll Hef "Way By BKATRICK FAIRFAX. Dwr Mlai Fairfax: I am a widow with two children; thre Is a man who la pay ing me attention. He nays he has plenty of money and will take care of my children and me, but when I try to set the day he Is never ready. He writes lovely letters, but when I ask him ques tions about his affairs he never (fives me any definite answer. Last year we were to be married arid go to Honolulu on our wedding trip, but when I got all ready he put It off for another year, What do you think I ought to doT WIDOW. Bo you are a widow with two children and you aro thinking of marrying a man, Just to be supported what ought you to doT Tou ought to be ashamed of yourself my good madam. There Is sometimes a vague shadow of excuse for the silly young girl who marries a man for his money; she doesn't quite know what she Is doing; but you, you do know and you're willing to do It, to keep from going to work. You are young, strong, healthy why do you want some man to work for you? Why don't you go out to work for yourself and be independent? How do you know what sort of a man this stranger would be after you mar ried him? If you are willing to take sueh a risk as that, how about those tittle helpless glrla of yours? Tou know what sort of a mother you are: how about this strange man for a father? nenty of money-what does he mean by that, anyway; plenty for himself for lils own selfish pleasures and none at alt for you and what your children need. Borne men are like that, you know; what makes you think this man Is different? Bo he won't give you any definite Idea about bis business afalra? Well, perhaps he haa no affairs to be definite about, and then, perhaps, he'o disgusted with you for showing him so plainly that you want hla money and don't care particu lar about him at alt. What are you going to give him for his "plenty of money and his good caret" What do you suppose he wants of you and your girls? Just some one to spend his money for him? He la probably per fectly capable of doing that for himself. He wants a wife, a home, some one to Jove him, some one to think he la a great man, a good man, a clever man; he wanta love, appreciation, gratitude, rest peace; are you ready to give him alt these things to him In exchange for hla plenty of money and his good care? I don't suppose there Is anything ao wonderful about you that the man would be willing to take three people to sup port Just to look at you, la there? I've aeeii your aort before, dear woman, many, many tlmea, and I've wondered and wondered about them a dosen times. Always looking for aome man to taki fcare of them, never willing to work and take care of themselves, and when they get the man, nine tlmea out of ten they make htm perfectly miserable and wlah they had never seen him. What do you think marriage la, anyhow, you poor foolish woman you, a business proposi tion? Are- you tot Bale to the highest bidder, you who have held little helpless babies In your arms and ought to know what love means love In all Its Joy and all It misery? If you are, then those little glrla of yours, are In the wrong keeping. Borne one ought to take them away from you and put them In an asylum somewhere where they might have aome chance to grow up modest, loving, sincere women, who ore willing to take care of them selves, sven If they have to work to do It till the right man comes along to take care of them. "Plenty of money and will take care of you," never say that again, little widow, to any one you want to have respect you. Better make n fool of yourself over aome man who Isn't worth the price of a wed ding rlnr than to sell yourself and tell people about It right before these tittle girls of yours; go to work, llttto widow, go to work; get a Job somewhere, an?" whero; sew, mend, economize, cook your own little dlnera on your own little gaa plate; keep your own tittle glrla with yen, tove them, make them happy; for get all about the man who says he wilt take such "good care of you,", unless you fall In love with him and havo some thing to give htm In exchange for what you expect That's my advice; think It over. The Motor Bus By MINNA HIVING. When summer eves are close and hot Within our little flat, I say to Stilly, "Come alone And never mind your hat For though expensive auto cars Are not, alas I for ua. Yet we can both afford a ride Upon a motor bus." We eometlmea perch upon the roof, And from Its height look down Upon the moving picture gay, Of old Manhattan town. But when the clouda obscure the atnra. And thunder threatens rain, Ws sit within and there rehearse Our courtship days again. My arm goea stealing round her waist Just aa It used to do When at her father's garden gate We lingered In the dew. Her tittle hand slips Into mine Confidingly, and thus We dram of future limousines And bless the motor 1ms. 3 By Nell Brinkley LIVE cnEAPEIt CUT DOWN MKAT BILL DOWN Tou can cut down vonr mnnt kiii two-thirds and get mora nutritious food by eating Faust Macaroni.

By an Imperial edict Issued by the royal Imbecile, Thlllp lit, 304 years ago, August M, 16(9, Spain banished the Moors from her dominions, and tn so doing com mitted national sui The Moriscoes. numbering about a million and a half, were given just three days to get out of the country Of course, they were unable to com ply with the edict so rapidly, and the government vlth save go energy, pro ceeded to cxpei them. They were hunted out Ilka wild beasts. Thousands wr.re slain, and the rest shipped to Africa. In many cases they were butchered like sheep and oxen and thrown Into the sea. Out of one consignment of 140.000. over 1M.000 suffered death In Its most fright ful forms, and after the most excruciat ing agonies. Prom the foolish and fanatical expul sion of the Arabs, epaln dates the be- ginning of her ruin. The; Morlscoes were the finest part of her population. They possessed the brain; 'learning, and in dustry of the patlon; and when they woro thrust out of the realm there wa& nobody to take, their pUce. Arts and manufacturers, either degenerated or were wholly lost, and vast regions of Arabic land' wero lett to perpetual barrenness, ureut areas were suddenly ; deserted, and to this ay they have nover i been repeoi'led. The. woudttful agricul ture that made the Andaluslan plains a erttable paradise vanished, never to rei turn. Tho silk manufacture perished. Tht splendid. Irrigation system went to pieces. The land that had be'en an Eden of de light became a Sahara. Intellectually the results were equally disastrous. The science that conquers naturo and tames her powers for the sen-Ice of man, and the general Intelli gence which refines and softens the pas sions and makes for brotherhood and progress, were of Arab origin, so far aa Spain was concerned, and when the Arabs were expelled along with them went these mighty agents of civilisation to make way for the luperstltlon which is humanity s most deadly enemy. Greatly did Spain sin tn driving out the Morlscoes, and greatly has she been punished for her monstrous crime. By EDGAR LUCIEN LABKIN "An Australian friend writes that Canopus Is more brilliant than 8lrlus. Vlease state It this Is true. In what part of the world Is t vlelbleT Has its parallax been, accurately; determined?' A. Klrst-l fear that your friend Is In error. The results o that instrument of precision, the meridian 'photometer, are that Sirius Is seven-tenths of a magnitude brighter than CanopUs, which easily teaches that Canopus is brighter than any other star. ' Second Canopus, next in . brilliancy, Is visible from all that portion of the world south of north latitude J? degrees, since Its declination ts south 6J 'degrees, and 53 Is the complement of JT. . It therefore, never rises above the south horlson of any point 37 degrees north. The latitude of this observation la 34 degrees 17 minutes, hence Canopus rises very nearly three degreeu above the watery wastes tn the Pacific aea. Its low altitude makes It much fainter than higher Slrtus. as the light must traverse layers of dust and water vapor near the earth's curface. Still it ts mag nificent, especially when rtandlng over a calm ocean surface. Third Canopus has no parallax that the highest-power telemlorometera that can bj made are able to measure. This Is one of the most overwhelming facts within the entire range of human expe rience. This means that If one goes to Canopus with the most powerful telescope ever made, turns and looks back this way, the base line, the entire diameter of the orbit of the earth-lS5,"S4,000 miles dwindles to , a minute point .too small to be measured by any microscope. Some t4ea may be had of -the Immensity of. the universe by thinking of this fact during each spare minute. Better to so think than to waste the precious moments. Men Slaves to Beauty, Women Are Not Girls of United States Won't Find It Neces sary" to Forni Protective-. League - Against Hand some Men, Says Dorothy Dix. J By DOROTHY DIX. lis themselves against In Berlin, where a man's a man and a husband's a husband and hard to get, no matter what sort of a face he has on him, Flauleln Derben haa organized a society that Is called "The League Against Beauty." The members of this organization are all young women, and they have pledged them selves to marry only ugly men, on the theory that handsome husbands make moro unsat isfactory life part ners than bdmely ones, and tint In matrimony itretty ts as pretty doe. American girls will probably not find It necessary to form a protective league to guard youths who arc cursed with the fatal gift of beauty, Apollos not being overly plentiful In this country, however com mon they may be In Germany. Indoed, In America the living picture man finds scant favor either with his own or the opposite sex, and we do not exalt the dandy who Is the glass of fashion and the mold of form to a pin nacle and Imitate him. We throw bricks at him and laugh at him. Strangely enough, It Is men who are slaves to beauty and who make fools of themselves over It not women. When you tell a man about a woman the very first question he asks you Is, "Is she pretty?" He nover Inquires whether she lc Intelligent or talented,, or agreeable, oi good, or what she has done to merit the approval of her fellow creatures. Tho thing that he is chiefly interested in is her looks. He places mora value on her complexion than her character, and con- Elders the outside of her head of more importance than the Inside. If a gtrl has yellow hair and blue eyes, and a pen-s and cream skin, and a willowy fig . she may be the dullest, the stupidest ibeclle that ever lived, her heart may behard as a jock and she hersolf nothing-but a clothes horse to hang fine dresses on, but men will flock around her like bees around a honey pot and fight with each other for a chance of marrylrig her. On the contrary, when you tell a woman about a man In whom you wish to In terest her, she practically never asks a question about his physical appearance. Hla looks, provided he Is not a deformity and has the appearance of a gentleman, do not count with her. What she wants to know is whether he is Intelligent, and strong; whether he knows how to talk and entertain her, and particularly what he has achieved, whether he haa made something out of life, or Is one of tho "also rans." Of course, beauty Is a gift of the gods, and If a man can have that In addition to all the other desirable qualifications he Is Just that much to the good. A woman would naturally rather contemplate an Adonis than otherwise, but a man's looks cut a very small figure In her estimate of him. Lt him be charming In manners, glib In speech, a good dancer, and es pecially know how to take care of a woman, and d0' the little things Just" right and the man with carroty hair, ntf eye brows, a snub nore and' a stumpy' figure can back the -classical featured six-foot tailor's dummy off o'f tho. boaTd'ony day. In tro6f of 'this observe, the1 bbVlous pleasure with' which girls 4Tecelvo the at- ' tentlons of- bald-headed,- 'bay-windowed men who break overy rule of physical pulchritude but who are clever and bright and overflowing with the graces of mind and soul. But can you Imagine a fat, dumpy, bnld-hcadod woman ever being a belle, or men deliberately seeking her out as a partner for the dance and rejoicing In being seen in public with her? Never. Such a woman might bo the most gifted creature on earth and a perfect angel of goodness, yet no man would ever take the trouble to look beyond her homely face and see the superlative beauty of her soul. The opponents of woman suffrage are always saying that when women vote, the one and only qualification that a candidate will need to swine the feminine ballot will be a handsome face. They are dead wrong there. Women won't care a rap about a man's looks. Indeed, they are always suspicious of one who Is overly endowed with beauty, but Heaven help the country when we havo femlnlno candidates for office and a Lillian Russell takes the stump! The men would, vote for her enmasse, without ever stopping to Inquire which side of the political fenco she stood on. In reality, It ts not too much tt say women rather resent than admire beauty In a man. It Is a poaching on their own preserves, tho Invading of a field they hold sacred to themselves. If anybody Is going to bo admired, a woman knows who ought to be It She wants the tributes laid at her feet, and not to be compelled to scatter roses before a man and tell hlm what beautiful eyes he has got, and how exquisitely his hair grows, and what a magnificent straight front figure he possesses. Faugh! The very thought of such a thing knocks romance out of the ring with tho average girl, nor does the Idea of being the ordinary looking wife of a handsome man make any hit with her. If there's going to be any beauty-and-the-beast business In hor family she wants to qualify for the role of beauty. Thai's ,tKe reason that you often see a pretty woman marry a grotesquely ugly man, but very rare)y a handsome man married to a homely woman. Another reason why women do not care for a superabundance of good looks In a man Is because a handsome man Is In variably Inordinately vain, with the vanity that makes the vainest woman seem humble and self-deprecating. He has a vanity that .requires to be contin ually fed on flattery of a warmer and more piquant kind than any domestic brand. It seems a pity to him to waste so much charm on any one woman, and that one a mere wife, so he roams abroad to give other women a chance "for to see and to admire" him. An instinctive sense of self-protection makes women choose homely men as hus bands. They may like to feast their eyo occasionally upon a matinee hero, but when thoy go home they want something more than a living picture in the house. They want a man, and if he's Intelligent arid good and kind and generous they don't care a button about his looks. '1 The Manicure Lady Maiden Meditations By LILLIAN LAUFEUTV. Don't be sure that a man Is tn love with you Just because he runs after you; reserve Judgment until he gets so agita ted about his cherished "freedom" and "Independence" that he runs away from the little gtrl who la threatening them. Now that ships that fly in the air and pictures that talk have come true, some genius may discover a way to make platonlo friendship work. Be careful about your 'innocent flirta tions" It ts easy to start something, but not quite so simple to stop It when you have hud enough. The party- of the sec ond part may want to keep on going. By WILLIAM F. KIRIC "I seen a Item from Washington tho other day," said the Manicure Lady, "that tells how tho wife of Vice President Marshall ts a base ball fan. I woridr who got that In tho paper for her." "Why?" asked the Head Barber. "Why?" echoes the Manicure Lady. 'Oee, George, you can be thicker some, morning than a Russian serf, or what ever It Is they call Jaspers over In Ilus. si a. Why, don't you know that the wife of a vice president or the vice president himself, or any of his folks Is supposed to be dead ones so far as newspapers ts concerned. When I read that item I noticed the heading in the paper, and it said: 'Mrs Marshall a Base Ball Fan.' I says to myself 'Marshall, Marshall, where have I heard that name -before? Honest to goodness, George, If ' I had asked you qnlck, would you have been able to tell me the name of the vice president?" "I don't think I would," admitted the Head Barber. "Of courso you wouldn't,"- said- the Manicure Lady, "and neither would threi other people out of four. You.-sen, George, the vice president of a great na tion Is like the vice president of the Audu bun Boclety or the vice president of tho New York Giants, or the' vice president of anything else. They have to wait till the main squeeze croaks before they go to the tailor for a new wardrobe. Every body hopes they are well and happy, but nobody sees their name In the paper and wouldn't know who It was If they dlfi see It in print. "A treasurer is some guy, George, whether he Is the treasurer of the countr or the treasurer of a dry goods firm I There, ts somethtng kind of solid sound j lng about a treasurer, and his name looks cuie ua a ciiccn. iou may not inWK him as great as a president, but you always see something beautiful abou his rugged features on payday. A Ad a secretary Is a ktnd or Important gink too. He has to read the minutes of!th last meealng and attend to the corres pondence. A secretary may not be sn much In a firm, but he can make more noise dictating to the stenographer than the president makes." "Xqu seem to know a whole lot about the business world for a simple girl that never had to work nowhere except In this shop." said the Head Barber. "I ain't as learned as a barber," said the Manicure Lady telly, "but a read more. When I pick up a paper I start In at the front pag and skip the racing dope. It's Just the opposite with you. George. And if you know anything at all, you know I am speaking true tines when I say that a vice president Is like the letters 'gh' in 'straight.' A vice presi dent that gets his name In the papers to any extent must be some press agent" "Oh, I don't know," said the Head Barber. "Teddy Roosevelt got his name in the papers a lot when he was vice president and after ha was out of it alto gether." "Yes, but Teddy is different" said the Manicure Lady. "I often wonder what ho would have did If he had been emperor of Rome when there wasn't no news papers at all. I'll bet he would have Jumped In the Tiber." "What was the Tiber?" asked the Head Barber; "Didn't I tell you all you knew was racetrack dope?" exclaimed the Manicure Lady. "You poor simp, the Tiber was a lake Just outslda of Rome."'
