If Your. Arches Are Weak,

I and I will bs thankful t? yea.
I have bm |oli( with a young
bey named Jack for six montha and
one evening be brought a boy
friend up te eee me'and alnee that
time Jack's friend baa been coming
to aee me quite eften. and we have

and aaked him to forget me, and
forgive me for giving him up and
breaking hla heart, as be aald 1
did. and. Dear Mlaa Blake, do you
think I will regret giving him up.
I will take your advice.
I am waiting. ROSS.
If you truly love the man you
apeak of. Rose, you may be grate
ful that you dtaoove'red that your
feeling for the other man was not
lasting. I do not think, If you ate
sure you are suited to each other,
that you will regret the loss of the
old suitor. For after all, broken
hearts are often mended.
Dear Hiss Blake:
Sometime ago I met a line young
girl of my own age and went with
ber for sometime, until one day I
walked home with her when she
[ was kind of uppish and ever since
! when I eee her on the street she
does not speak, although I seem to
know that she likes me. Out you
advlss me. Miss Blake, bow to make
up with her? I certainly Ilka her,
and It has made me unhappy ever
slnoe she would not apeak to me.
However, one morning I a?? her
and she smiled but she waa a till
mad.' I never had nei\e enough to
ask her eut to the movies with me
or any place else and will you
pleas* tlrlM me haw to wk her
and whtn. I' always try to go car*
ful with a girl but It-all ???ma to
Co a cat nit ma. Thanking yon heart
ily. I am, JAMES D.

enough. Call har up and Invite her
out some place. Use the telephone
If you'los* your courage when In
her presence. Think of something
a little unusual even If very aim
pie. Girls (of all ages.) always like
that. Try It on your mother.
My Dear Miss Blake
I never miss a day reading The
Herald, and always read your good
advice to the young lovers. How
ever, my question Is not concern
ing love.
I am a girl It years of age, aqd
my height la t feet t Inches. I am

and very wavy hair and am urde

However. I should advise you to

A Ctrl friend of mine bad Juat ar

The First Day's Hardest.
Soon after I finished college I was
flatterad by being gi^en the oppor
tunity to assist in teaching one of
the clafcses.
The first day that I stood facing the
large class, from behind my desk,
which was on a raised platform, I
was ?o excited tljat when I went to
sit down, Instead of pushing the chair
back from tke desk, I pushed the desk
?yea, air?right off tho platform,
down on th? startled students who
were sitting ln the front row. Luckily
there ware a few. husky athletes
strong enough to riplace It

One Step To* Far.
I was idly standing by watching
soms toeir erecting a building. The
grounif at my feet was covered bv
a thick layer of rich, dark earth.
Thoughtlessly I took, one step too
far and my foot sank Into a bed of
mortar clear to my knee. I made
for home several blocks away, post
haste, followed by the laughs of the
men, at well as the people I met.

One of our neighbors waa the
proud father of a small daughter.
The child waa not a bit pretty and
just ordinarily bright, but the dot
ing parent had a habit of seeking
praise for her.
At a lawn party he asked a
sturdy boy of 4: "Don't you think
she's the cutest little thing you
ever saw?"
With the brutal frankness of
childhood the answer came: "Aw,
gee! If you think she's eute, you
ought to see my aunt's baby." B. S.
George and hie dog were getting
hungry, as mother was entertain
ing some company for dinner, so
George called the dog and went
over to a neighbor's and said.
"Please, Mrs. Brown, will you give
Fldo and me something to eat?"
"Why," said Mrs. Brown, "what
did you and Fldo have for your
dinner?"
"Just company?thafa all." said
George. - Q. McD.

One day' he stood by the window
patiently waiting for his brother,
long after school had closed.
Suddenly he exclaimed. "Well,
there Is that old kid at last. He Is
always sure to be the endest one."
