A FEW HELPS AND HINTS TO
PARENTS AND HOUSEWIVES
AN ARTIST'S MODEL
X" HAD my picture taken in a down
town studio ami the artist thought
I took a tine picture He wishes
me to become his model. My mother
objects to my posing for him. Do you
think I ought to poso for him or not?
IF THERE WERE NO OTHER REA
SON for refusing to comply with the
photographer's requtst. your mother's
opposition should settle the question.
-You aro not the ilrst girl by manv who
has .written to me of her ambition (!)
to become an arttsfs model. Such a
proposal tirskles the vanity of the un
sophisticated .creature who does not
dream how common an event the propo
sition is. andliow little it means.
A letter before me from a mother
tells me that her JS-year-old Is "perfect
in forxn and beautiful Jr. feature." and
that the parent wuuld like to have her

TA New Glass for Serving

A2EW gloss for serving grape
fruit, salad and kindred ap
petizers is going to be a
boon to more than one
housewife this summer.
For the sensible first course of fruit
is no longer limited to hotels and
fashionable cftfes.where trained chefs
are well aware of its appetizing, re
The housekeeper who keeps abreast
of things has adopted the idea for the
home tr.ble. Instead of a hot soup or
shell fish, the languid appetite is
quickened by a mixture of fruits in
season, palatably chilled with perhaps
"She." too. is 17. and Is all that could
be expected of a noble, true and loving
woman of greater age. She has made
life the happiest for me that it seems is
possible; developed from a reckless,
wayward and profane boy a pure, high
minded Christian man, and she herself
is but my age.
Our parents are all opposed to our con
duct, and I fear we have been deceitful
with them. She is so honest and has
taught me to be so honest that or.ee we
agreed to try to forget our love and not
see each other any more. We did not s.
each other for about three months but
By -accident we were brought together
and the scene that followed I will never
tell. Since for eighteen months we
have been, together and make no Mcrel
to each other of what we feel, and in
spite of w-hat w& reid about csresslns
before engagement we are not. cannon
be backward in shewing it; but our con
sciences are troubttd.
Io we treat our parents right? We
don't want to be; "engaged." We have
talked about it Often and would be hap
piest just to be loiers on and on; but
if sometime we think favorably of thess
things and then encounter the stern op
position of parents, what would be done?
What is to be done now?
Be frank with us and consider notn
isg but our duty. She knows I am writ
ing and wants me to tell you Just to
help you to decide that she loves, ne

a taste of wine as flavoring.
The new glasses for serving these
fruit mixtures come in various-styles.
Perhaps the most convenient among
them is one in the shape of a tall gob
let of cut or tinted glas2 having a
small handleless bowl to match. The
mixture is filled into the hotel, which
is set in the goblet and packed in
with shaved ice, so as to come just
to the upper rim of the glass.
Of course all manner of dainty
finishes are possible. Maraschino
cherries, strawberries and hotho,usc
grapes may be dotted over he surface
of the preparation, and for state oc-
mc to belong here rather than to the
column devoted to "Our Young People."
In reading the ingenuous cocfeaalcn of
this one of "my boys" I sn-5d not help
thinking of the elopement la the taie of
the "Holly Tree Inn" waiter.
Recalling the parting by the swn
father of the lox-ing couple aged respec
tively 7 and 5 my sympathies were with
the chambermaid, who cried oat tear
fully! "It's a shame to separate era!
So it !sl"
If I- knew the parents of our "pux
ried" pair I Ehould beg- then to humor
the babea-in-the-wood lovers to a cer
tain and safe extent. They ere as hon
orable as they are devotad t one sm
other, and they wsuld be obedient' to
lawful authority if they could. I stxntM
persuade there to promise not to spa5i
of marriage unttl they are 21.
It might be welt "to send them to dif
ferent schools, many rnlies apart, and
put them upon their honor to exchange
letters ou; twlre a month. Make their,
understand that all this is to test tftelr
fidelitv anI the reality of their love
theti trust them
Usually this moderate and matter-of-fact
course ends tn a praduai drifting
apart, as eSch matures One grows away
from the other, or their devKp3nt Je
along different line and the p4;anl
end Is gained without "seer;" or vio
lence tn senslbniUr. Shouid they re
main trvs to the early dream ah.
we!!! such things have been, and raei.
substantial happiness has come of it.
Give them time!
