Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am 19 years
old utid very much in love with a fei-
! low I met labt year, but am keeping
j company with another fellow I do not
like so well though he seems to like
' ine very much. Shall I stop keeping
company with him, as I do not like
i year, but I ran never marry this fel
low as ho does not keep good com
pany and is turning out to drink.
It isn't wise to go with anybody who
doesn't keep good company, for, you
place yourself in the same class as
the company he keeps. Also, It means
sure porrow to allow yourself to like
anybody who doesn't know when to
Show the world that you know a
good man when you see him, and don't

Disease of Metals.
Metals suffer from contagions dis
eases analogous to those of living be
ings. Among these diseases one of the
most striking is that called "tin pest"
Sometimes a block, a plate or medal of
tin attacked by this disease crumbles
and falls Into dust, and sometimes
warty protuberances appear on the
surface of the metal. Various other
metals suffer from a disease that man
ifests itself by a spontaneous recrys
tallization. The most remarkable cases
occur with lead and bard drawn brass.
These diseases are not due. as has
been thought, simply to moisture.
Temperature plays a part In producing
them. The most extraordinary fact
perhaps is that the "tin pest" is capa
