Ine If I ought to have done differently 1
and what I ought to do now. There

thought liked me and I loved her well
enough to want her for my wife. Two

brother. . He wanted to marry her but
her father aaid he must learn to
peak English first.
He went to achool to leara English
and about two months ago I heard
they were engaged. I asked the girl
If It was so and she said It was
but she was afraid. I asked her It
so liked him and she aaid that In a
way she did. I was afraid to say any
more after that I thought that a
girl that was engaged wanted to keep
away from oer men, so I did not
tell her I loved her.
When she was married, I heard that
her father carried her to the a" tar
and she sobbed through the cere
mony. They say It was more like a
funeral than a wedding.
" Ought I have had an understanding
with her? What can I do now? B. J.
You can do nothing now. It would
have been better to have told her
how you felt, even If she was engaged.
If she had wanted to change, she had
the right to then; but, she hasn't now.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) How
can one reduce the size or thickness
of the lips? (2) How to get a white
complexion? (3) How to make the
pores of the face smaller? A. B. R.
(1) There is no way to reduce the
ize of the mouth or thickness of lips.
Give your mouth a pleasant expres-
wlth health. Either lemon juice or
buttermilk will whiten somewhat. (3)
Dab the face with a little achohol
two or three times a day.
Dear Mrs. Tompson: (1) What Is
good to dean a raincoat? (2) Is It
wrong for a girl of 16 to have gentle
men friends call and take her out oc
casionally? j ANXIOUS.
(1 Warm water (not hot), a good
white soap and a nail brush. Rlnce by
dipping in tub of clear water, then
bang out, without wringing to drip
dry. (2) If her mother approves, I
see no objection.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am a young
man of 19 and have been going with a
young lady about two months. What
would be a suitable birthday present?
C. M. L.
Flowers, candy or books are the on
ly suitable presents.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) Is 140
pounds too great a weight for a girl
5 feet, 3 or 4 inches tall? (2) What is
the proper weight? (3) How can I
reduce about three pounds a week?
(1) Yes. (2) About 130 lbs. for
your height. (3) Eat less, exercise
more. Before breakfast each morning
take the Juice of a lemon in a glass
of water. This will reduce you
