ADVICE ON SOCIAL CUSTOMS EAP.LY ENGAGEMENTS FROM the countless letters that are cent to me Inquiring about en gagements, I have felt It my duty to ii.lk seriously with my readers about this very important incident In a woman's life. I wish to emphasize the fact that thl« srtep iis o^e of the most vital that a \u25a0woman can take. It Is a parting of th» waye. It marks the opening of a new vista o' action ejzi thought. « Now. fir.cc this Is the point where a greater and wider life may be awaiting you, cr where the possibilities for In dividual growth may be dwarfed or killed, does it not appeal to you that one's ideals should he fairly well formed ar.l mature before any decision be A MISTAKEN IDEA OF LOVE "Do you see that man?" a sensible woman once szld to me. when a dissi pated wreck of one passed us on tha •treet. "I almost eloped -with him. I thought that I loved him when I was 16." It is unnecessary to add that the infatuation was a case of mistaken love arjd that she was disillusioned. This merely proves to us that people and thing-s which satisfy us at 15 are Insuf ficient at S5. Xo two .beings develop exactly alike. One person acquires evil habits, another grows better. The age that In its ideals is not mature is just a suggestion of what the individual may be ten years later. Ni^ Unfortunately, a young girl of 16 or ZS does not tee this index of a man's character. Her romantic notions about love and marriage are all very satisfy ing, but th«y will not feed and clothe her nor eupply the demands cf her life when she vrili have outgrown them. I remember, with despairing horror, two youss and irresponsible persona vrho were married amid the acclamations cf friends and relatives! He was scarce ly able to cecide for himself or to pro vide for the contingencies which fall to every one's lot. She had no thought be yond the triumphant flash of a ring on her left hand and the dragging about of her gorgeous train. Oh. yes; they •were very happy for about four months. There were lacking a mature equipoise end Judgment which are absolutely nec f. essary for happy marriage, and the dis agreements became more frequent and more heated as the days rolled on. One day the young boy of a husband left and "R-2.S never seen again. The wife re turned to her parents, a broken-spirited young woman. Xever will she be the happy, innocent young girl again. Her ettltude toward life is embittered beyond any change. Her life has been ruined. It is just a case which Is repeated over end over in every one's knowledge. OLD TiTATDS AEE NOT SCORNED There it; sometimes a different reason from the girlish, mistaken idea of love; it is the fact that to many of our young \u25a0women the idea of being "an old maid" Is repugnant. Let me say that It Is far better to be single with the power to choose your life partner in the years that tre marked by a true self-knowl edge than tc make a mistake when young and to repent a.t your bitter leisure. Nowaday* the modern'young woman is not quite so dependent upon the sup port of her father as her grandmother vras. And in this age the title of "old msid" is not shunned by the sensible 1 young woman. We are living in an age when every one of us demands as her Inalienable right a free and ever broadesine life, a joyful liberty of thought and ideals and* a sane pursuit of liapinness. ' The wife of today must be more than c pretty, laughing girl She must go to her husband with 6Ound Intelligence, sensible ideate and a mature ability to co;.€ with the many trying require ments of married life. These are rare ly found in the 17-year-old girl. Please, for the sake of every one, heed the \u25a0warning. Insist upon a few years in t which to prepare for your new life, and X to prcve to yourself that you still are cf the same opinion about your future ccsband.
