o« FRier*DLY COOrlSEL The Old, Old Question. Dear Miss Poynter: 1 am a young lady 20 years of age. I have known a young man for about six months; although he calls on me twice a week I siill go out with another young man whom I know. I toll him and he thinks that I ought not to go with anyone but him. I said that un less a girl were engaged she could go with whom she pleased, but lie does not agree with me. Please let me know if I am right or is Ik*. Thanking you I remain. BUJfi EYES. You are right. No man should ex pect a girl to give up her other friends for him until they become engaged. Not only is it unnecessary, hut it is very foolish for a girl to do so. If when you become better acquainted you find you are not congenial you will be without other friends -whose com pany you might enjoy. £ man who does not think enough of a girl to ash her to marry him or Is too selfish to GIFTED SWEDISH WOMAN. | I! * Selma Lageriof, the Swedish woman who won the Nobel prize in 1909, ha* obtained a place not only in her native country but throughout the world as a writer. Her stories are ranked with those of Hans Christian Andersen. She early displayed imaginative power. Had ing many wonders in common things and w riting of them so luminously as to attract wide interest. One of her hooks, "The Adventures of Nils,” Is full of poetic sentiment and practical infor mation. It clothes the ordinary facts of life with poetry and appeals to chil dren and adults. It explains the vege tation of Sweden, its soil, Its mountain formations, its climatic conditions, and L4ts of the customs of the people and farming, ns well as of home life. do so has absolutely no right to even suggest that she devote herself wholly to hint. Meeting on the Corner. iJear Miss Poynter: 1 met a young man a few weeks ago, and since then he has Invited mo nut twice. I accepted the invitation and told him to call for me. but he said: "No. 1 will wait for you on the corner.” T did not think this was right, so I re fused to go out with him. Was that the proper thing to do? A YOUNG GIRI. Yes, Y'oung Girl, that was certainly the proper thing to do. If all girls followed your example they would be much happier. Never go out with a man who has not called at your home and been presented to your parents or the friends with whom you live. Men will respect you more when they know that you show your parents the cour tesy of presenting all your acquaint ances to them. f + t SUFFRAGE IN AUSTRALIA. $ Andrew Fisher, prime minister of Australia, says woman suffrage has proven beneficial to his country. He does not think the extension of suffrage to women will lead to domestic unhap piness. It has proved helpful toMndus tries and has had o good effect on elec tions. As a result of woman suffrage the legislators In Australia have marked a minimum for wages that may be paid to women. While there was jeal ousy at first. Fisher says, between the labor unions and the organisation of which the women are members, that has been eliminated almost entirely. He explained the men soon lost the fear women would usurp their positions, and have come to see that women have their sphere in business as in the home.
