I Cynthia Grey's Answers |
"MOTHKII" SAYS: "TKCST THE Glltli. BUT NOT THE MAX"
I)e»r Miss Grey: In reply to Sept. 20 signed "A Man."
1 believe he is in (In- right for not waniim* to pay for
the third party when he invites v girl out; but when it ionics
to sister or mother "sMi klnjj ulong," 1 want to tell the young
man this much, I always go along to all the pleasures, and my
daughter wants me too, but not to watch her. I go to watch
him. So there you are, my dear. MOTHER'S lili.lli.
I>«*ar Miss Grey: It was with pleasure that I read the
letter written by a stenographer concerning married women
gei*ini< [mine on the lute cars in the evening und taking up
the working men's scuts.
I will also state thai it might be well |>erhu|iM to remind
some of tiie married women that go home on tlie alxwe said
curs, ami have a lot of children, to make tin- children stand
mi and Rive their seat to the people who have been working
the whole day and are tired. Again and again I have noticed
that die children, who are well able to stand up or couM he
held on their mother's lap take up all kinds of seats and some
poor, tired, woruout laboring men have tv stand tip.
Please publish this letter, as it might he that some women
have never thought of this before. A L.AISOKINU MAN.
WOl'll) IT 810 ItKiHT TO ASK A GIHIi TO KISS ME?
Dear Miss Grey: lam 10 years old. Am I old enough
to go with the girls? (Am I large for my age?) Would It
be right to ask a girl to kiss me? \\ liui will make shoes
stop M)iie«kiiig'.' "CHAPPY."
A.—No, you are not, and would not be if you were 50 years
old and held the same view, for you seem to think the prime requi
site is to kiss the girls. ■ • «
Soak your shoe soles in water over night.
IS mn MONTHS LONG ENOUGH ACQUAINTANCE?
Dear Miss Grey: lam a girl of 19 and have been going
with a nice younsr man of '2:1 for nine months. I love him »nd
I think he loves me, and now, dear Miss Grey, do you think
that we have known each other long enough to think of get
ting married? -
Please tell me the meaning of the way slumps are put on
letters. A GIRL HKADEIt.
A.—lf you hadn't stopped your letter off with such a very
silly question, I might have said, "Bless you, my children, yes";
but a girl who will bother her head about a foolish stamp flirta
tion is hardly ready to be a wife and mother. Wait nine months
"LEGION" TAKKS ISSUE
Denr Miss Grey: In regard to George being engaged to .
a certain gill, nn<! not being allowed to kiss her good-night.
I want to tell George that this is a sure sign she does not love
him, even it' his whiskers make him look like a billy goat, or
anything else. . LEGION
I*. S.—Mease answer this, as I am a constant reader.
A. — I presume you want me to take back what I said, Legion,
bufr I can't do it. However, I agree with you that if she loved
him ehe |g» uld continue to do so, if he looked like forty billy
goats; but she might love him, and still refuse to kiss those whis
IK) GIRLS XKKD GOOD JUDGMENT OR A CHAPKRONE?
Dear Miss Grey: On I lie chaperone question I would ask
the reader: Which is the safest, knowledge, good sense and
judgment in regard to the good and bad we meet; or ignorance '
and a watchful eye's protection? . ■'
Who ever thought of sending a chaperone with Miss Cyn- i
thia and her gentlemen escorts? What a funny idea, you say,
hut why? -Well, Miss Cynthia has a lot 'of sense, but why
"hasn't your daughter a lot of sense, too, and why can't that
be her protection as well us Cynthia Grey's?
On the other hand, how long are you going to portect your
daughter with your watchful eye until she marries? Oh yes,
certainly, ignorance in the girl is good enough wherewith to
choose a husband; but you say you will help her choose, or, -
I" : Imps, choose for her. Did you ever think of catching a
thief. by letting him know you were watching him? No more
will a bad man show his qualities when you are watching him
for your daughter. Further, no mother has the right to make
her daughters use her taste.
1 say, educate your daughters to judge for themselves. '
When a girl is fifteen she should be able, to take good care of
herself. It is not a question of being trusted, but of ignor
ance, against wisdom. A NATURE STUDENT.
CHAPKROXK MAKES A DIFFERENCE IN $20 SALARY
Dear Miss Grey: In answer to "A Man," I would just
like to say any young man who keens company with a girl and
really intends to make her his wife some future day, has
enough respect for his sweetheart and himself tliat they will
not need a chaperone.
And I crtalnly agree with "A Man" that It makes quite
a difference in the expense of the evening's entertainment to
have a chafirone. Think of a man who is making eighteen or
twenty dollars per week keeping himself and saving for a home.
He wants to give his sweetheart the best within his means, and
I want to til you two or three dollars per week make quite a
difference. lam honest enough to admit that there are some
low-brow creatures of my sex who do not go with a girl ex
cept to tempt her; but they are not men. And that is where a
mother is foolish to let her daughter go with that kind. I
have a ve^ dear lady friend with whom I am keeping com
pany and we do not need a chaperone and never will. F.
I "FOKMEII" BOY'S EXPERIENCE ON CHAPERONE QUESTION
Dear Miss Grey: Noticing your .discussion in reference
to young ladies ami young men going out for an evening's*
pleasure brings !«>< k recollections of some of my past expe
One mother, a widow, left in moderate circumstances,
Wlieu I invited her daughter, to attend a ]wrty, had a quiet
business talk with me and informed me that she would be
* happy to have me take her daughter out, hut I was to go in
their private carriage and to alternate the expense. she had
1 ft (vjjai'rt for my small salary.
Another mother always had a nice l^mh spread, and it
was home for the lunch after an evening out instead of a cafe.
These mothers were not watching their daughters.
. I recently heard a young lady complaining that the boys
were going to the* dance* alone, and I thought why don't you
try to go on an even footing with these young men and re
turn their courtesies in a way.
If our modern girl did'nt expect everything for . her
pleasures, and would meet these boys half way, and also the
parents would back, the daughter up and send a young man
who had been pleasant to her to the theater some night as
, their daughter's treat, there would be f little question about
th boys going half way and responding to an appeal to their
honor. ■, A FOItMKK BOY.

He couldn't. He said he did not

' Ah, but ' I know better. Her
