f ANSWERS.... \
Il mil. By Cynthia Grey J
Q. —Will you please be so kind as to give your views upon
the question of the end of the world being so near? I know
that for years it has been prophecied at different times by dif
ferent people, but some of these had nothing upon which to base
the claims of their theories. At the presont time, many of tbe
churches of this city are discussing this subject and their liter
ature ls spread all over the country. It Is remarkable to see the
amount of people who are expecting the ond of all worldly
things In the near future and are planning their earthly affairs
accordingly. What do you think about it? MRS. H. D.
A.—l think if everyone would live today proi>ared to die to
ntorrow they wouldn't have to worry about the end of tlie world,
which none of us know anything almut. Tlie financial itrepaiations
of which you speak Is my Idea of misdirected energy.
Laborer: Is life worth living? That all depends. Some
times it ls, and sometimes it isn't. The question is, what makes
it. worth while, and what makes it cheap? if you can discover
that, from your experiences and thoi_e of others, then your life
will be your own to make.
We set up our own standards, or our theories of optimism
or pessimism, as the case may be, and then raise a howl because
they don't fit. If you see so little In living, why don't you call
a halt on yourself, and ask yourself, what are you, and what is
it you want to do, to be, or to have? Uid you ever figure It out
that your own self, that ls in you, almost as a separate person
ality from your experiences perhaps, Is after all, all there Is in
you, and is the same identical self that is ln every form of life?
And unless you let that self bee ome real to you, you neither
find yourself, nor enable others to find you? Hut to find your
self, believe me, you can't be by yourself all the time, but only
long enough to realize that you have a self ln common with ail
life. Self which knows nothing outside of narrow limits Is
ignorant selfishness. Self which admits also of infinity ls
something entirely different, and demands all one's common
sense, faith, energy and enthusiasm to achieve and realize.
And why worry about educational opportunities? Life Is
education, and what you get at universities is very often far
from Mint it all depends on the person, heal life is no soft
snap, no ring-around-the-rosy affair. If that Is what you look
for, you miss the best education and life. For life is more, let
us hope, than the air we breathe and the death that follows. It
ls all nl this, and a courage besides, that believes, and dares,
through failure and success, until it finds its true self, that in
tangible self we have ln common. Some call it Cod, but that
shouldn't scare you. ANON.
Dear Miss Grey: It seems that nearly all the letters you
receive are from "■Unhappy," "Discontented," and such; but I
am going to write a different kind, for I am one of the very hap
piest women in Tacoma.
I am of a rather quiet disposition and the boys near my
age never cared to keep company with me, although I always
received the respect of boys of. all classes. When 1 reached the
age of 16 I used to feel blue at times, and wondered if it was
worth while to keep good, aa the girls who acted loud never
lacked having beaux.
By the time 1 was 17 older men began to care for me. I
didn't realize they cared for ma-really; but I am glnd to have
known those men who appreciated me so much for leading a
clean life. Three years ago, 1 fail*, a man 12 years my senior
whom I cared for very much. He was Jolly, fond of pleasure,
and had seen a great deal of life. He had also gone with girls
of all classes. People said we could never get along together
as he had gone so much and Iso little. lam 22 now. \\'..• have
been married two years and I am soon to be a mother.
Some say, "but think of all the other kind of girls he has
gone with, I wouldn't like that.." 1 am not Jealous; but proud
to know that he chose me from among all the other girls he had
known. He wanted a wife who was clean, one who would have
dinner ready for him when he came home instead of being at a
"movie," and above an, one he could trust with other men.
Don't think by this that we stay at home all the time, for we
don't, as we attend dances, parties, (healers and other amuse
ments; but we are never so happy as when we spend our even
ings at home together.
You girls who are dissatisfied now, have patience a little
longer, and you will be rewarded. There are plenty of men who
will appreciate the clean life you are leading. The extremely
popular girls now will still be single without many friends and
unhappy when you are married with a happy home. I don't
mean to Insinuate that all girls who have beaux are not good,
for some ofthe best girls I have ever known have a number of
boy friends for company.
The "fast" girls enjoy life perhaps between the ages of 15
and 20. The men's don't want those kind of girls for their
wives, yet they are willing to help lead them on to ruin. Such
1b the way of many men. The clean girls will perhaps marry
between the ages of 18 and 25. Think then of the happy years
to come. Are not the many happy years of married life far
greater than the few years the popular girls enjoy?
Q. —Is it proper for a girl to kiss a young man with whom
she has been keeping company -steadily for four months?
I L.
A.—lt is not. A girl is not supposed to kiss a man unless she
is engaged to him. The man who a*»k«i a girl for "steady company"
in not entitled to the privileges of the man who asks a girl to marry
him. To assume that he has them 1k very like obtaining money
under false pretenses, and the girl who grunt* (ln-ni ls liable to find
out sinne day tltat she has been imposed upon.
This Is just one more of Hn.se follies belonging to the "steady
company" system against which girts have l>een repeatedly warned
in this column.
A reader has been kind enough to ropy the poem, "The Shooting
of Dan McGrew," and send it to me. If Fred will send self-addressed

I don't wonder that Mollie Is
all at sea about her beaux. I
don't think I have ever known
three men from whom it would he
so hard to choose.
Veeterduy she stopped hero
with Chndwick Hatton, who, as
soon as his wife died hurried
back to Mollis.
"Isn't it strange, Margie," she
said lo me as we slipped out in
the dining room to make some
ten. "thai I have to begin all over
again with Chudwlok when only
a year ago I was so crazy about
"No dear —that ls the wonder
ful thing about youth, it ls quite
as easy to fall out of love as to
fall in. The very hardest thing
Is to stay In love.
There is one thing, Margie,
you have taught me, and that is
the foolishness of thinking that
"the light that was never on
land or sea would be with lovers
"Oh my dear, I wish I could
feel for Chadwlck again what I
felt for him that day—lt was the
most glorious and the most tragic
I have ever known. And here is
the queer thing about it. Chad
wick seemß to be Just as much in
love with me as ever, and after
what I told him he must think it
very strange that I do not re
spond to his love-making with
much enthusiasm. Margie, some
times 1 think men are much more
sentimental than women."
M think they are, my dear. You
see, murriags Is woman's busi
ness, and we go about entering
into It in a more or less uncon
scious business-like way. Love Is
woman's vocation, its man's avo
cation, which ls another way of
saying, 'Love ls if man's life a
thing aimrt —It's woman's whole
existence.' " Mollie smiled. She
is always quick to understand.
"But I am afraid," she said,
"that you and Byron are quite as
far apart in the meaning of your
epigrams as you are hi the times
ln which you live."
"Yes, Byron lived in that won
derful man - made - world time
when woman was 'but the minis
ter of love.' "
"My goodness," interrupted
Mollie, didn't they put It beauti
fully in those times, 'the minister
of love.' You and I know that
means in the last analysis only
the minister of man's pleasure."

"And don't you see, Mollie," I
