DISTRESSED It Is a little dldlcult
to advise jou. my dear, because you
see I do not know your parents' reasons
for not liking the young man In ques
tion There seems to be no reason why
he should eo Into your store three times
a day unless he Is attracted to you, and
If he Is ingaged to another girl he should
not do this If he must buy things In
your place eery day it would seem as
well for him to do so all at one time
There Is no actual harm In his doing
so. but It makes persons talk, nnd oung
girls can never afford to hate rumors
and gossip spread Hhout them. It seims
rather a mistake not to hae boy or men
friends and not 10 go out and around
with them Your parents may h.o
some very good reason why they do not
want you to do so, but under ordinary
conditions It Is not wise. Young perhons
are meant to meet and be benslble
friends, and If men and girls do not get
to know a good many of their own age
they will be apt to marry the first one
who comes along, Just to get out of being
held tn, and have unhappa Ucs in con
sequence. If you could find a thoroughly re
spectable place to board and could gain
our parents' consent, I would advise
the position In the city, but not without
your parents' consent while you arn
under age. Parents usually have good
reasons for their mandates, and It Is a
wise girl who listens to her father anl
mother. She will not be apt to regre.

be sure to call on me.
Send This to Your Soldier Boy
To the Editor 0 ll'omnn'e Page:
Dear Madam I have read several In
qulrles rigardlng things tn send sodlre ntitl
sailors, ana thought perhaps a suggestion
of something that I have aent two of my
cousins row "somewhere In Krnnre," M h
they are dellzhted with, will not come amiss.
It Is a sanitary soap In a collspslble imIm.
that can be carried in their pockets or kits,
and It Is a splendid soap. It Is sold at most
of the department stores and drug stores
I have also aent them the same brand of
foot soap, which Is keeping their feet In good
condition, even In the trenches, where both
ot them have been. Hoping this will nor
seem presumptuous m my part, but will
prove good to aome of our other bays I
b n. ilea.
It Is not at all presumptuous It Is
most thoughtful of you to share your
knowledge of what soldier boys like with
the rest of us, Unfortunately, I cannot

to sena 11 1 nave tne name on me ana
Will be glad to send It to any one on

Dear Madam Will you please answer the
foUowlns In your Woman's Kicuanget I
have a muff and scarf The murf I am
going to atore away for the summer; the
scarf I would Ilka to keep with me for the
summer. Would you advise ma to keep )t
or bare it stored! if 1 should keep It
plessa let me know how to take rare of it
at home? Thanking you for a prompt reply,
1 remain, J O, L.
Unless you have a cedar chest the
safest thing to do with furs In the sum
mer Is to store them. However, many
women have put their furs away accord
ing to these directions and had abso
lutely no damage come to them
Have the scarf thoroughly clean and
sprinkle llberallyySvlth cedar shavings,
which- can be bought at almost any de.
psrtment store. Wrap It carefully In
several thicknesses ot newspapers. If
you keep It In a drawer or wardrobe
plaea near It a Piece of linen moistened
with turpentine and leave It for a single
day before putting the scarf away there
Do this two or three times during the
summer Be careful to brush and shake
the scarf every time you take it out

The Unwilling Vestal
By Edward Lucas White
Author of "EI. rH'I'ItKHO"
The Outlook says: "Mr. White, in
his fascinatintr story of old Rome,
purposely makes Emperor, Vestal
Virgins, slaves and every one else
talk like the people you see at
movies or meet on the railway.
For once we have a story of clas
sical days over which we do not
go to sleep. The same is true, of
course, 'Quo Vadis,' but that
remarkable book is far less un
conventional than this."

Fishc in Popular Form
One of the most encouraging Indica
tions that the nation Is awakening to ths
necessity of understanding something
about the necessity of maintaining a
great navy Is found In tho fact that the
publishers have found It necessary to
Issue a new- and popular edition of near
Admiral Bradley A. Flske's excelKnc
handbook, "The Navy as a Fighting
Machine." The first expensive edition
appeared In October, 1016, It was re
printed In March of the next year, arid
the Conference Commltteo on Prepared
ness presented a copy to each of the
United States Senators and Representa
tives. The second edition at a reduced
price Is Just from the press. Admiral
I'lske sets out to answer three questions:
What Is a navy for? Of what parts
should It be composed? What principles
should be followed In designing, prepar
ing and operating It In order to get the
maximum return for the money ex
pended? He answers these questions In
plain language so that tho average man
can understand him
