Dear Mrg. Thompson: I am a
young man of pleasing appearance,
age 2?., and am engaged o a woman
of 55. fine Is worth $450,000 and while
I have told hpr I rare for ber a great
deal. Bhe known I am after the "coin."
I am very popular with the girls and
alwayg have been, but I wish to travel
and I don't believe there is any such
thins marrying for love. Do you?
N-I'Jit you nor
fpel flattered If I should tell you what
I think. You are exercising neither
common sense nor love In this mar
TiaRP, and no marriage can be a suc
cess without either. What you want
Is a mother, Samuel. Ask your fiance
o adopt you as h-r son. Then you
can ke-p on
if I would lose her. Is it proper for
a girl to kiss a fellow?
! Ask her permission for you to write
to her. and make it a point to accept
thT invitation to visit her. Lt her
vour fiance would ! that you like her a great deal, but
don't propose until you are better ac
quainted. No : I don't think it proper for a girl
to kiss a fellow unless she is engaged
to marry him.

is no harm in a friendly correspon

your mother. (2) My dear! I am
surprised that you ask such a ques
