A youth is certainly immature; that is, be has not attained his full growth physically and mentally, until the age of 21 that being the age at which he is supposed to know enough to rote. As ft matter ot fact most boys are not physically and mentally mature until the age of 25. That is the age at which every young man should marry of be taxed by the state. In dwelling upon the injurious effects of tobacco in youth I do not mean to imply that tobacco la not injurious after a man has attained maturity, - for every physician I knows how disastrous its effects often prove. So far as I can de termine, about one in every half dozen grown men who use tobacco suffer no serious physical detri ment for the reason that about one In every halt dozen users of this drug is temperate in his smoking. The action of tobacco as a drug is not clearly understood. There is enough nicotine in a pipeful of ordinary tobacco, or a cigaret. or a cigar, to quickly kill a large ani mal; hence it seems evident that little of this is absorbed by the man who uses tobacco.

Is there any harm in wearing one? Is there anything that you would suggest? I am an xious to reduce if possible. (Mrs. C. W. L.) Answer No. No garment or belt will reduce. The condition is brought about by prolonged splint ing of the abdomen corset wear' ing which, of course, gradually impairs the tone of the abdominal musoles. The obvious remedy is able for the effects produced upon J therefore development of the atrophied or weakened muscies oy gradually -increasing exercise. Omit the corset half an hour longer each day or two, until you can stand erect and move about without it, as one learns to discard crutches after prolonged non-use of the legs.

It may be that the production ot small amounts of carbon monoxide and direct in halation thereof is an important factor of the narcotic or "stimu lant" action ot tobacco.

However, it came to us through the French by a lengthy process of evolution. The Hebrew Cbanaach was its earliest source and from this word, it de rived its significance of "grace." Through the English Hannah, it came to France as Anne and was soon given tbe diminutive, Annette. As Nanette, it appeared simultane ously, but the French love of va riety charged the latter form to Nanon and finally Ninon. The beauty and fame of Ninon de L'Enclos, superwoman and court "vamp" in the reign of Louis XIV; spread her name afar. It became almost a synonym for charmer and the maids ot several countries coveted it But Ninon is too Gallic for English ears, so, in its trans portation across the channel, the ending underwent a change and Nina was the final result It has enjoyed extraordinary vogue In this country. The diamond is Nina's talismanic gem. It is tbe emblem of fearless ness and Invincibility and prom ises its wearer success in all un dertakings and freedom from mis givings. According to an old sup erstition, it enhances the love of a husband for his wife. Sunday is Nina's lucky day and 3 her lucky number. Heart irHome 2X 1 MR.

Until lately he has always kept engagements on time. Now he has changed. He failed to keep his engagement three times in succession. One night he came down the evening after he had said he would come and said he could not help breaking the ap pointment I did not believe him at all. I know that he doesn't go with any other girl. I care a great deal for him, but it is not love. I have, been corresponding with him and he has a number of my letters and notes. A boy friend ot his found two of these, and then be gave his friend . the remainder ot them. What do you think of him? I told him I would not stand to be disappointed because there were too many boys that wanted to take me out He is trying to get good now to get me to think and care for him as before this happened. Shall I treat him as I did before, or what would you ad viae me to do? M. M. Dear M. M.: I think, my dear. it I were in your position that I would simply forget the young man altogether. You say that you do not love him and he has really not treated you squarely at all. His ac tions look very much like he Is trying to break the friendship or like It is immaterial to him wheth er or not you remain friends. If he really likes you and cares to re main friends with you, when he sees that you will not put up with the treatment he has been giving you, he will no doubt explain his actions. Go out with some ot tbe other young men and forget him. Dear Mrs. Thompson: A certain boy has been calling on me for about two months. Lately he be gan to tease for a photograph ot me, which I refused to give him. One morning after he had been to see me I noticed that my photo graph had disappeared from the piano. When I naked him about it be looked Innocent and aald he bad it I kaw ka did inks nikt to tb I like this boy very much and so do my parents. Father laughs about the picture and thinks it is a good Joke. How can I make him give it back to me? Or should I let him keep it? MADGE J. Perhaps you had better sav noth ing more about the picture since the young man says he did not take it Ot course he lied, but it ia a playful lie since he knows you know the truth. It is a matter which should be forgotten rather than to give it too much import ance. Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am 18 years old and going witj a young three years mv senior. Ha lives In another town and is going there soon. He wants me to go along and visit his mother. We are not engaged, but I know he loves me. He is working bard and saving money and I know that when he has enongh he will ask me to marry him. My father sars I cannot tn his borne. What do you think? DOUBTFUL.

In fact so bitter is Brother Duss con cerning the carelessnesa and inac accuracy with which the records of the society have been set down that he hrs lost all faith in news paper reporters. For this r.uon we intend to let Brother Duse tell this story as he told it to us, sit ting in the garden. In the shadows of the old bandstand. - "Economy was tne tniru town cut out of the American wilderness by the Harmony society," he began, wiping off and adjusting bis nose glasses. (Brother Duss is a very modern old man, with a lean, wiry build, hair scarcely touched with gray, and a lively, expressive face. He emphasises hla eloquent re marks with equally eloquent ges tures.) All Worked and Shared Alike. "Harmony, Pa, was the first and New Harmony, Ind., was the sec ond. All were built on the same model, and run on the communis tic principle. Everybody worked, and everybody received tbe same amount ot produce, regardless of how much he had invested in the treasury of the society at the begin ning. It was a mawelous organ ization. "Picture to yourself a state where the high cost of living is so thoroughly solved that each one knows that so far as the neces saries and comforts of life are con cerned be has them assured In sickness and in health for. all: time; yea, and after that a respect-1 able burial. - "A place where there is no trans portation problem, no worry about the condition of the railroads, be cause all the necessaries ot lite are produced right there and supplied direct to the consumers, without the Interference of middlemen. "Where there are no banking and currency problems, because there is no need of money. The land yields generous return to dill gent hands, the factories and shops produce all necessary wearing ap parel and articles, and to each is given what he needs. "As to the woman, she has the right with man to labor and enjoy the fruits thereof; also, she has the same right to give voice to her sentiments. "The question ot keeping the young people on the farm is also solved, for the farm on which they labor encircles the town in which they live, town life and farm lite being harmoniously blended. At harvest time the whole community takes to the fields. A place where the erection of public buildings and the construc tion ot utilities is brought about with astonishng rapidity; but mark you, not by voting bonds and saddling debt on future generations, but by doing the work outright Wky It Was Called Harmony. 'A place where there Is no dawdling or qulddllng . or other waste of time in fact where there penses of the Journey to America Under present conditions the pay ment ot these loan became an Im possibility, eo It was agreed that they be canceled and that what lit tle money or personal property ex isted amopg the members of the so ciety would be placed in one com mon fund, to be used for alL "Among the society's rank wen tradesmen of almost every conceiv able craft carpenters, black f BnmaB, wisdo nwaera, uuum shoemakers, tailor, batten, me sons, wheelwrights, saddlers ant weavers.
