Courtship and Marriage
By Betty Vincent
tEAR Miss Vincent: A
J young lady and I are en
gaged and were to have
been married in May, but a few
days before our wedding date she
was taken ill and we had to post
pone everything, She then partly
recovered and went to the country
to recuperate, but when she re
turned home she was again taken
ill. I had my doctor call to see
her and he pronounced her ailment
malaria, saying she should not wed
for six months. The young lady's
father was highly indignant be
cause I had my doctor call, saying
his own doctor was sufficient.
Now my sweetheart is getting well
and declares she wishes to marry
at once. But after what my doctor
said do you think this would be
advisable? R. L.
The young woman s father was
right in instating that he should pro
vide the doctor. Her parents have
taken care of her all theso years and
ought to bo able to do so until she
.becomes jour wife. If jou delay the
marriage six moniru you may worry
her into a more serious illness. Why
not wait until tho lato fall now?

"Dear Miss Vincent: I am a
girl seventeen years old and keep
ing company with a man three
years my senior. This man asked
me to marry him and I refused,
thinking I was too young' to
marry. He begged me to accept
a friendship ring from him, which
I did. Now that I am not en
gaged and only consider him' a
friend he thinks I should not go"
about with any one but him-Shalt
I give the ring back? "
It is true you are .too, young to be
come engaged, but if you accept a
friendship rung from this man and
really care for him I think it would
be bettt r for ymi nqt to run- about
with other chaps. If you do not care
for the man at all that Is another
matter, but If you have any Intentions
of ever becoming his wife I think it
would be far better for ysui t" consider
his friendship sitlllelent without seek
ing other masculine friends.
"Dear Miss Vincent: I am in
love with a girl of twenty. I am
twenty-eight. Wo are planning "
to marry soon. Do you think I
am too old for her? REYNOLDS,"
