Dear Mrs. Thompson: I hare been
married only seven months and we
ar beginning to be unhappy already.
My husband complains that I am
"letting down" in my looks and that I
serer give blm any of my company like
when we were first married. Now,
the truth is, Mrs. Thompson, that I
do all my own hocscwork, and I am
counted a very goon nouseKe-per. .-v.y , tjandwlthout topping over and
husband Is hard to cook for and wants that meang doping prettv and sweet
thre big meals a day (he comes home! nd ,ovable an(1 even "lotting the
to dinner at noon). Now. it taKes an
my time to keep the house nice and
cook, and when he wants my company
in the evening I have to wash the
dishes and get ready for next morning.
I haven't any time to fuss around about
my looks, and. anyway, oughtn't a
man to expect that bis wife an't keep
up the same as before he was mar
ried? TROT 'BLED.
Ton poor little new wife'. Don't
you know that some of the fault Is
on your nlde? A man marries a com
panion, not a hoirnekeeper and rook.
Irt some of the work go and attend I havp it
to your hiirt'iand's heart needs. Take ! married
as much time to look pretty 8H you do
to make your house look pntty you
are worth more thnn the house, no
matter what the neighbors say. Let
the dishes pile up to be wai-hed next
morning when your husband isn't
around. Or. maybe, he will like to
help you wash them and put them
away, If you will make a pleasant
game of it. Ij-)ts of men help their
wlven clear away the dish's Just be-
house go" when It's a question be
tween husband and housekeeping.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am goir.g
with a splendid young man, and we
have an understanding, but he is not
earning money enough now to marry
and I have a position. We don't want
anybody to know about our understand
ing. But one of our neighbors saw
him kiss me goodby the other even-1
Ing. and. as she is a regular old gossip.
I know she will talk. Now, what shall
I do? It will hurt my position to ;
known that I expert to be ;
and we won't be married for j
a long time. Please advise me. F. L. !
If there Is an engagement between i
you it would be better to announce
it. It puts a girl In a very uncom
fortable position to have "an under
standing" without any definite engage
ment. Better talk it over with the
young man, and if he is unwilling to
make an announcement call off the
"understanding" until he is. an'l then
tell your Intimate friends about it.

Claude Orahame-White, the English blrdman, and Dorothy Taylor, the New York society girl, are to have
a swell church wedding in London June 27. The ceremonies are to be carried out according to the latest
society methods for such affairs, and after they aie over the couple will board Crahame-White's aeroplane,
which will be waiting just outside the door, and fly away.
Miss Taylor has ridden with Ora!iam-White before, and a few weeks ai;o she planned on making the
trip across the English channel with him. She got ready for the trip and had even donned her aviation

to make the trip with him.
"An Absolute Nuisance"
Emphatic opinion of Cleve
land's famous Mayor regarding
two telephone systems
"I, believe that the consolidation of the
telephone companies would be a good thing for
the people. This business is unlike almost any
other in this respect. The two telephone com
panies in the same city are an absolute nuisance,
and their consolidation would be a great accom
modation to the public." (ATmr Tom Johm.:
The economic waste involved through
competition, in furnishing telephone
service, cannot be justified.
