Cynthia Grey's Answers
We are 'Sometimes Saved by
Dear Miss Grey: Having
received such courteous treat
ment through your columns,
I venture to add a few words
of courage to Mitts J. ' -
whose letter appeared re
cently, by reciting a page of
my own past life..
After having lived in a
country town for 20 years,
I came to this city, and like
most country boys who come
to tho city, everything was
so strange and beautiful that
I soon got into bad com
pany, and like Miss J. C, I
visited the dance halls and
skating rinks and even worse
places until my mind had be
come poisoned and I began
to think there were no good
girls and that we were all
This sort of thing went
on for two years, until one
night I met a young lady of
the underworld at a dance
and I asked her how she
came to lead tho life she was '
leading. She told me her
story—one^ of the most pite
ous I ever heard, and to
that very girl I owe and shall
always owe my new life and
the joy of living as i see it
Now, instead of frequent
ing dance halls, I go to the
Y. M. C. A. for my recrea
tion and sometimes go to a
vaudeville; but most of my
spare time I am at homo
reading good books, and I
can truthfully say that all
that old desire has left me,
' and I hope forever.
Just one last yord: I
would advise Miss ,1. C. to
think twice before she accepts
the invitation of her friend
to leave home. Don't do it.
Yon havo had a little taste
of the worldly things of life,
now try the new and better
things. Go to the V. W. G.
A. and ask them to help yon.
After six months I venture to
say you will make a truly
womanly woman of yourself.
A. — thank you for your let
ter; it is one of the few which
requires no answer.
"One Who Regrets," if you
will send me your name and ad
dress, stating contents of your
former letter, I will be very glad
to advise you privately.
Mother Has "Old-Fashioned"
Dear Miss Grey: lam a
little girl of 17. Have been
going with a young man for
about two months, who, be
fore he met me, was every
thing he should not have
been; but since then, he lias
assured mother that he has
lived a good, clean life, still
mother has old-fashioned no
tions and will not allow me
• to go out with him in a
cutter or for a buggy ; ride
' until he can prove to others
'he has changed or turned
over a new leaf. Dear Miss
Grey, is she right? ' •'.
A. — indeed, she is right,
and you will be a very fortunate
little girl If you mind her.
Far Be It From Such.
Dear Miss Grey: As oth
ers come to you for advice
and are benefited, thought
I would try, too.
I am a lonely bachelor of
marriageable age, living on
my ranch in a community
, where women are scarce.
Would be very happy if I .
could gain the love of a good
true woman and would try
to make her happy. Could
you assist me in finding a
wife? I will anxiously await
your answer. 1.. It. 11. B.
A. —I beg your pardon, dear
sir, but this Is not, as some peo
ple insist on believing, a matri
monial bureau. Far be it from
such. I do not doubt for a mo
ment but that you are sincere;
but I never put my readers In
touch with each other with a view
It is Cynthia's chief aim to
! administer balm to those who
have already come in contact
with Dan Cupid. If I can help
you about anything else, will be

The Best of Us Make
Dear Miss Grey: lam a
young man of 20 and have
been keening company with
a young lady about a year.
I seemed to have chosen the
wrong set of friends which
led me to the habit of drink
ing, and was some time ago
arrested on tills charge. I
was then informed that I
was not to pay my attentions
to tills young woman there
Since then I have straight
ened up and have a fine
night position and a good
salary and am associating
with a refined set of friends.
Do you think I would be jus
tified in asking this young
lady's attention again, she
knowing that I have changed
for the best? Please advice
as I am anxious to retain
this young lady's friendship.
A.—Why not? If the young
lady is sensible she will realize
we are all apt to make mistakes,
and when we see our mistake and
set about to correct it we should
have the encouragement of good
Shall I Tell Him Never to
Come Here Again?
Dear Miss Grey: I have
been going with a boy 10
years old for nearly 18
months and he is very good
looking and has always
treated me very respectable
until Tuesday night. We had
been to a show and there
was a very loving couple in
a play. Coming home he
said "I wish we were those
two. Let's bo." He caught
. .me and kissed me and then I
got very angry and told him
he need not come to see me
Yesterday 1 received a note
from him begging me to for.
get it and come to church
with him, as he would never
never be so rude again, and
I am writing to ask you if
| I shall believe him and go
with him again; or shall I
tell him never to come here
Please answer nt once, as
I'm very anxious to know.
I nm only 17 and have no
brothers and mamma' is
gone. 1 keep house for my
papa and my baby sister.
A. —As a rule, I do not ap
prove of girls as young as you
going with boys unless an older
person accompanies you; but you
seem to be a sensible girl. You
did exactly right. Perhaps the
young man has learned a lesson
and it is hardly fair to Judge him
entirely by this one act if he has
always been polite to you be
fore, but if he ever repeats It
drop him for good.

THE NEW "SLIP OVER" GOWN
Worth is showing some of the most beautiful restaurant cos
tumes for early spring.
The one illustrated Is of pearl gray chiffon with the facing
and train of chiffon velvet. The facing is caught to the chiffon
just at the knee with a band of opal beaded lace from which de
pends a fringe of silver beads.
The sleeves and peculiar drapery which forms the upper por
tion of this gown is indescribable, but the picture tells the story.
The upper drapery is of gray tulle embroidered with silver
and opal beads.
One peculiarly individual touoh which has more of the air of
Poret than Worth is the band of heavy gray macreme lace which
outlines the V shaped neck, front and back.
This queer gown simply slips over the head and hangs straight
all the way down like a classic Greek costume.
The cap of cloth of silver with its opal beaded band, its silver
fringe across the back and its saucy feather complete a costume
which would make any woman, who had the temerity to wear it,
the observed of all observers of any smart restaurant in the world.
DIRTY DIRT-THE EASY WAY
TO BANISH IT-MRS. NORTON
BY MRS. AIJCE P. NORTON.
It used to be said, "Anyone can
keep clean." You and I know
better. In the smoky city, by the
dusty country road, or with little
children running in an.d out, per
fect cleanliness is something that
most of us reach only in ideal.
We must learn, then, to
distinguish between ( I i: \\
dirt and DIRTY dirt. Tar.

of beauty, not of health, but

clean or the food might be
Yet aesthetic cleanliness is im
portant, for attractiveness not
only aids digestion, but helps in
good manners. Children particu
larly need the refining Influence
of beautiful surroundings. But
let us put the most Important
Perhaps the first "dirty" dirt
that comes to mind is dust, and
certainly much of the work, of the
household lies in getting rid of
it. The broom, the duster, the
carpet sweeper, the dry mop and,
best of all, the vacuum cleaner
are familiar implements. The
vacuum cleaner has its great ad
vantage In that It really removes
the dirt and does not simply stir
It up. If we can't afford this, we
must learn how to accomplish the
same end with simpler tools, for
simply to stir up the dust means
that is will fall somewhere else.
Instead of the old fashioned
feather duster, use cheese cloth
over a broom, or a lamb's wool
duster, on a long handle, to reach
the high places. For furniture
a good cheap substitute for the
effective dust I ess duster is a piece
of cheese Cloth upon which a few
drops of oil have been placed.
A good dry mop for bare floors

THE TACOMA TIMES
put Into a mop handle. This also
may be treated with oil. The
dally use of the carpet sweeper
saves much scattering of the dust.

The coat is lined with a. darker blue silk than the outside.
Dark linings are the fashion fancy of the moment.

The care of the plumbing is
important, since this takes away
the waste from human life. Do
not think It is necessary to use
disinfectants unless there has been
a case of conagious disease, and
then do it under the direction of
a physician. Instead, teach your
family to let a little fresh water
run into the bowl or sink after It
has been used, so that clean, not
dirty, water may remain in the
traps. Pour hot water frequently
into the fixtures, particularly
into the kitchen sink. Occasional
ly pour in a gallon or so of hot
water in which a cup of washing
soda has been dissolved. See that
every part of the closet is clean,
including the handle, AND,
ABOVE AL.L, teach the washing
of hands after using it.
What Makes a Woman?
