Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) I am In
love with a young man who is two
years my enlor. I never knew I
liked him until I found out I could
not go wlUi hin. One evening I turn
ed him down, the next evening made
a date with him to go to a party and
on the following 9unday turned hJm
down. He 1a mad at me now and
won't ask me any more. He even goes
on the other Bide of the street bo he
won't have to meet me.

wear more than one ring on her fin
ger, or doe It show lack of taste?
(3) Is It proper to correspond with
a young man whom I have never
neen, but an acquaintance of my friend
and of whom I have heard a great
(1) H teems to be rather
"touchy." However, you cannot have
ever loved him very much or you
would not have been so ready to
"turn him down." Better be more
considerate of tha next one.
(2) It la never In good taste to
wear much Jewelry. (3) An Intro
duction by mail Is as good as an In
troduction in person; but it's best to
be rather careful about correspond
ing with any young man.

at my home or go out walking wltii
them. We would never stay oat after
o'clock. We did this without our
parents' consent. Was It very wrong?
