THE TAOOMA TIMES.
Another One "Madly in
l»ear Miss Grey: I
would like to ask you a
question which I am mire
yon will answer with the
bout of advice.
I am a girl of 13, madly
in I"vi- with a boy of 10.
I have just reason to believe
that he has been associuting
with a girl who has the repu
tation of being tough. We
have known each other since
childhood. How shall I act
ton aril him, coldly or indif
A. —Peaches, don't you know
you can't be mad and in love at
the same time? lam Inclined to
believe you are the former.
Is It your place to choose this
boy's companions for him? Cer
tainly not, any more than he
would have a right to choose
yours for you. You can only in
fluence each other to do right.
He may be trying to help this
girl to be better for all you
know. Treat him as you would
any other friend.
Better Tiike a IVeled Onion,
Than a liillygoat.
Hear Miss Grey: Having
read your many advices, I
come to you for sonic.
I will be 17 in a few days.
My mother insista on mo
wearing my hair straight
back over or above my ears
in v knot in the back.
Now, Miss Grey, as I do
not wunt to look like a peel
ed onion, nnd want to look
like o»her girls, mother Is
willing you should decide tlie
mutter. Anxiously waiting
your reply. MAKV.
A. —Suppose your mother and
you compromise and each come
half way. Comb your hair in a
neat, sensible way that becomes
you. Personally I would rathei
look like a peeled onion than a
poodle dog or a billygoat, as so
many of the girls do.

we can get nlonn all right.,
Dear Miss «rey, give me your'
advice as best you can and
tell me if I should marry
her and settle down. W. M.

Not in This Case.
Dear Miss Grey: I am a
young man 17 and have been
going with a girl of 10. She
is a nice girl and good
enough for any man; but I
don't think it is right for a
young man to marry a girl
ol«ler than himself, do you?
Please answer soon, as I am
waiting for your advice.
A.—l should say not; nor to
marry a girl any younger either.
You are scarcely out of kinder
garten yet. Wait until you are
of age at least and then if you
still care for this girl and she
cares for you, a few years' differ
ence in age one way or the oth
er does not make a particle of
It All Depends.
Dear Miss Grey: .A man
many years my senior has
paid me much attention for
some time. The other even
ing he presented me with a
beautiful silver thimhle.
Should I keep it or give it
bark to him? Do you think
it would lead encouragement
to his advimces?
A. —If this man is making ad
vanceß you do not care for, why
did you not give the present back
to him when he presented It to
you and tell him you could "not
It all depends on the circum
stances, your age and bis dispo
sition. If he is merely an old
friend and regards you more as
a daughter, I see no harm In
keeping the thimble; otherwise,'l
would return It.

I have my own home and
it is all furnished very nice.

and what to do to persuade
htm to go different places.
E. T. O.
A. —Could you not arrange to
have your recreation in the after
noons while your husband is at
work? He is probably too tired
to go around after he has worked
all day. You ought to be thank
ful that he enjoys his home
enough to want to stay in It and
I should think you would prefer
spending the evening with him in
your own home instead of the
theater or dance.
You surely knew he did not
care for dancing before you mar

expect him to like It now. If he

Just a last word —Your future
