At the Apollo QUESTIONS THEY WRITE TO CYNTHIA GREY--HER ANSWERS Q —While employed for the Standard Oil company In Shanghai, China, 1 was married to a Chinese girl. This girl • was educated in a mission and could speak Knglish fluently. When I gave up my position and came home, she refused to come with me. I have been home about two years, and during that time I have kept company with a very nice girl whom 1 love. This girl also loves me, because she-has told me so. She also knows of my relations with this Chinese girl. I was married to the * latter by a priest, which is the Chinese custom of marriage. There is no license required or a marriage certificate given in a Chinese marriage. Now, what I want to know is, would this marriage be con sidered legal in the I'nited States? If so, could 1 get a divorce through the courts of the United States? If not, could they hold me for bigamy If I married this American girl without a divorce? Please answer at once. ONE IN TROUBLE.

I did not know he w-as going until after he had gone. He has been away quite awhile now, and is soon coming back, so his sister says. My question is: How shall I treat biin when lie comes back so as to gain Ills resjicct? It will be necessary for me to meet him often as his sisters and 1 are great friends. 1 want to win back his respect—well, really nmre than I have ever wanted to .do anything before.
