TEE UGLY AMERICAN GIRL.
Comments of Two Japanese Women
Overheard in That Country.
From the Kansas City Star.
The beauty and charm of the Ameri
can girl Is so generously conceded that
tt may be a surprise to learn that there
is a spot on the earth where her ap
pearance falls to make a favorable lm-'
presslon; where, in fact, her features
are regarded as the reverse of prepos
sessing. In this respect an American
fjlrl, recently returned from the orient,
relates an experience that has since
kept her wondering If the compliments
shc.sq often receives are not the most
barefaced flattery and the looking glass
a. miserable deception.
' It happened in this way: A short
time before leaving Japan she was vis
iting a friend who resided in a part of
the country little frequented by foreign
ers. One afternoon they were saunter
ing down the quaint main thoroughfare
of the town, much observed by the
populace in general, when they became
conscious that they were the objects of
curious attention on the part of two
Japanese girls, evidently of the well-to-do
class, In particular, who followed
close on their footsteps.
Presently the resident turned to her
Visitor, with a smile, and remarked:
"Jseems we are the subjects of a good
deal of comment on the part of the
young women following us. What do
you think they are saying?"
"I cannot guess," the visitor replied.
'Please tell me."
"Well, you must promise not to turn
pnd violently resent their criticisms,"
"Then this is a translation of what
they have been saying about us. Said
'Mips Peach Blossom to the Hon. Miss
Chrysanthemum: 'Oh, do look at those
foreign women. See how strangely they
'are dressed. They wear short kimonos
lust like the men. How very Im
proper!" " 'Yes,' acquiesced the other. 'The
foreign women have no taste in dre&s.
In 'Toklo, where I have been once, no
foreign woman's toilet is complete
without a stuffed bird on her head.
. If she has not enough money to buy
a whole stuffed bird she buys a head,
the wings or some feathers. They are
very strange, the foreign women!"
" 'But,' exclaimed the first, 'did you
notice the terrible size of the noses ot
thefse two foreign women? Are the
noses of all the foreign women as largo
"'Yes, they arc us large, but they
are proud of their large no&cs. The
foreign women do not consider a large
nose a disfigurement.'
" 'How very strange: And see, their
eyes are as round as the full moon!'
"Yes, as round us the full moon.
They stare at you without uny ex
pression or feeling.'
"And their walk! Do look ut their

IT REQUIRED some nerve, but tip to
the present moment that has been
my heaviest asset, and the chance
to rake in a cool $76,000 doesn't come
every day even to a newspaper man.
Just think of It? That "ad" was so al
luring. "A beautiful young widow, possess
ing $75,000 In her own right, desires a
kind, indulgent husband, who will as
sist in looking after her property. Call
at room No. 17, No. 84 Muldoon street,
at 10 a. m. Monday."
I closed the paper and endeavored to
be calm. The description fitted me ex
actly; It was a photograph. I am kind;
I am certainly indulgent, and nothing
would suit me better than to assist in
looking after property. Surely, these
many years of scrubbing along on the
odds and ends of literature have fitted
mo for the Job. That afternoon 1
dropped In on a friend in La Salle
street and got his advice about Invest
ments. I thought It was best to be pre
pared. It was with some difficulty that I suc
ceeded In borrowing a spring suit from
the city editor, hut I was sufficiently
desperate to hang on till he surrend
ered, and at 10 a. m. 1 was the third
man in the line that stretched up the
stairway at No. 84 Muldoon street. I
confess It gave mo a pain to see the
class of fellows who had answered that
"ad." They were not in the least
adapted to the position, and I pitied
the poor girl. But then I was so close
to the head of the procession that it
would soon be over. ( was glad I came
early, so as to save her.
The first in line entered the door at
the head of the stairs, nnd we all moved
up a step. He was a regular Willy boy,
with a red vest, nnd mouthed a cane.
Mentally I gave him five minutes, but
he only required two. He came out
somewhat hurriedly, a pained expres
sion on his countenance and a tear in
his eye. Evidently the widow possessed
The second man looked like a farmer
and had a fringe of whiskers under his
chin. I didn't think he'd last long. Af
ter he disappeared I took my turn fac
ing the door, and tried to count a hun
dred to still the throbbing of my heart.
I had never been so close to $75,000 be
fore, and It rather rattled me'. The
farmer didn't show up for quite a
while, and I was beginning to have a
sinking sensation in the stomach, when
the door opened a few inches and a
man stuck his head out.
"Come, step along lively now, No.
3," he said hoarsely.
Shoved by the fellow in my rear I
went in, and the door closed behind me.
It was a big room, but somehow it
hardly met my Ideal of the boudoir of a
$75,000 beauty.- But, then, she might
be eccentric; it was a good sign, any
how, that she was not Inclined to ex
travagance. I was eagerly scanning
the dim recesses for a glimpse of the
charming creature when I was rudely
"Three dollars, please," said the man
giuflly, and he held out his hand.
"But but," I stammered, remember
ing that I only had live and that my
last week's board bill was yet In ur
rears, "I didn't fcnow "
"Oh, stow that," he Interrupted sar
castically. "It's either put up or get
out and give the others a chance. Any
how, you get the cash back If she
doesn't cotton to you, and we've got to
huve some sort of guarantee that you
mean business. Besides, what's three
dollars amount to alongside of seventy
live thousand dollars?"
That w.th a strong argument, and
with a sigh I dug down and "produced."
The next moment u curtain was lifted,
and r was In the prccence. Say, It was
the event of my life. She may not have
been exactly all I had hoped there was
a trlllo more paint than I admire, and
the hair was somewhat warm. But
with that picture hat and $75,000; well,
I saw my finish.
"You have come," she said hoftly, ex
tending her hand and gently drawing
mo down beside her on a faded sofu,
"I presume. In answer to my advertise
ment. This Is of course very embar
rassing to mo, but I must bo frank.
May I say, then, that your appearance
pleuses me gteatly; I am sure you
would prove to be a kind husband, and
that I shall make no mUtako In In
trusting you with my love."
That was Indeed a moment of ecs
tasy, I could not speak, but held her
hand, nnd planned n trip to Europe.
"I really do not feel now," she mur
mured, and I was conscious that her
hair brushed my cheek, "that I have
any desire to see the others, now that
I have met you, but Mr. Smith Is such
a strict business man that he will prob

"But surely" I began, but was in
