THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRIDAY, SEPTEJEBEIt 27, 1912.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am in lore
lth a girl whose sister Is madly In
love with me. However, the girl
doesn't seem to care for me and the
only way I get to see her is to go and
ee her sister. What should I do?
' B. V. D.
Hare you thought of inviting the
girl to go with yu to parties, en
tertainments, picnics, or anything of
that sort? Perhaps she likes you,
but wants to give her ssiter a fair
how. The only thing for you to do
Is to show plainly which one you pre
fer and, If you want to marry her,
tell her so at the earliest favorable
moment. It would be cruel to mis
lead the sister by calling oa her often.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: We are two
