THE ROCK TXiiAND ARGUS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1912.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I hare been
Burled three years and my husband
is not as kind as he formerly was. I
was qtiltA 111 the other night and he
otd real hateful when I called upon
bJm for assistance. When I remind
ed him that I had always been will
ing to render him my assistance when
he was 111, he said. "I would not allow
.you to do anything for me again If
I was dying."
H gave me the customary kiss be
fore leaving for work the following
When I speak of going home to
Bother he tell me I can go if I want
to, but he 1 not asking me to do so.
He caused me a great deal of em
barrassment by refusing to take me
to a place of amusement one night, in
the presence of his stenographer, snd
told me that If I wanted to go I could
other times with one girl. The only
reason I know why this girl will not
go with the bunch of girls Is that at
a football game they would not speak
to her or eTen let on that they saw
her. They said it was because she
went with a certain girl about whom
there Is a great deal of talk. But
there Is no talk about this one girl
that 1 know of. What do yon think?
(2) Is It proper for a girl to speak
to a boy to whom she has never had
an Introduction but they have each
met each other for the past year?
(3) Are my writing and grammar
go by myself. Was that right? His very poor? Everyone tells me it Is
stnographer does not address him as' that is, my parents and some of
Mr. but calls him by hts last name.
Don't yon think that rather familiar?
Every night after leaving his business
he waits for her outside the store
and tells her good night. Ought he
to wait for her?
Every time we Quarrel be remains
obstinate and if I cried all night he!
would not attempt to pacify me.
Kindly advise me. BEATRICE.
Learn how to laugh off things, and
to show Indifference whether you feel
It or not. I suspect that, you have
shown your feelings too much. A man
soon gets tired of that Be good
natured. keep healthy, forget a whole
lot of things that It Isn't necessary
to remember, and youll be happier
your husband will be, too.
The stenographer cannot have much
regard for him. or she would not ad
dress him In that manner. Take your
hnsband at his word and have a good
time without him but be pleasant,
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) At times
I go with a bunch of girls and at
my teachers. READER.
(1) If, thpre is nothing wrong about
one girl, the other girls who cut her
did a very cruel thing. Can't you
talk with her. In a friendly way, and
ask her cot to be seen about so much
with the undesirable girl?
(2) I should think so. (3) Try to
make them a little better, my dear.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am going
to have a masquerade party. (1)
What are some nice games to play?
(2) What would be nice to serve. (3)
I know a fellow whom I like very
much. At first when I knew him tie
acted very nice to me, but lately he
Is treating me In a cool way. He
is going to be at my party. How
should I act toward him?
(1) Get a book of games at any
book or stationery store, I have no
sufficient space to describe games.
(2) Several kinds f sandwiches
meat, salad and sweet; pumpkin pie
and hot chocolate. (3) Treat him
Just like the rest of your friends.
