(2) How late should he stay ?
(3) Is there any harm In giving a
boy your picture?
(4) Why should a boy not kiss a
girl when he leaves?
(5) What would be a nice present
to give my mother for her birthday?
(1) Why, no, my dear, if he con

girl of your age should be in bed by
10 o'clock at the latest. He should
leave about 9 o'clock. (3) Some boys
make a collection of girls' pictures to
show oft to their boy friends. Better
not give him the picture and be the
exceptional girl. (4) Because when
she lets him kiss her he classes her
with all the other cheap girls he
knows who let the boys kiss them.
When boys and girls get beyond be
ing little children they should save
their kisses for their own relatives
and for the one they some day expect
to marry. (5) Give her something
pretty to wear. If you could make a

to her and ask if she will answer

why not go and see her? She might
appreciate visits more than correspondence.
