Don't Write Again.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am In love
with a young mnn a few years my
senior. I havo also been out with
him a few times and I believe he
must care for me. .
Now, Inst week he made a date
with me, but when the day came he
sent his brother to saw that he
couldn't call that ray. So I thought
perhaps he'd call next day or else
write, but he has neither written nor
I, not knowing what to think,
wrote him a friendly letter, asking
him what happened and when I
could expect to see him.
I have not received an answer, but
don't know what to think. Perhaps
he didn't receive the letter, or may
be he doesn t want to answer.
Please tell me, shall I write again.
I know that if he got my letter he'd
answer, because he is a real man
and knows that I am waiting for an
answer from him.
If I were you, my dear, I would
not write to him again about the
broken appointment. After all. he
sent word by his brother that he
would be obliged to break it, so he
does not owe you an apology.
Perhaps he did not receive your
note. You say he is a "real man,"
and so I would give him the benefit
of the doubt and not take offense.
But do not write again. Let him
take the initiative thla time. He
knows he is welcome at your home,
and if "he cares to do so he will sug
gest calling on you again one of
Questions of Etiquet.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I have not
been out much with boys .so in some
ways I am puzzled as to what is
proper. When . a girl goes to the
candy kitchen with a boy friend,
should she give her own order or
tell her friend and let him give it?
If it is correct to give her own order,
should she give it first? Is it proper
to order Just anything you want?
When a friend takes you home
after an evening together and he
tells you he has had a pleasant even
ing, should you tell him you have
had a pleasant evening also? Or
shall you Just say "thank you" and
If a number of girls are going to
have a party, and each la supposed
to invite her own boy friend, should
you send a written invitation, or
would it be correct to call him Over
the phone? What should you say?
I shall thank you ever and ever eo
much for the answer to these ques
As a rule, a girl tells her escort
what she wants and he gives both
orders. Yes, you can have what you
like, but a little consideration Is
often appreciated by boys who are
treating you on their own pocket
money. Of course, tell him you, too,
have had a good time. I should call
the boy up. Simply aay you and
your friends are arranging a party
and you would like to have him come
as your guest.

"REVELATIONS OF A WIFE"
Chicago and North Western Railway Company
To the Public:
iThe Chicago and North Western Railway Company has sent the fol
lowing notice to all of its former employees who left the service of their
own accord Saturday, July 1st, 1922, and subsequent thereto:
"At 10:00 a. m., July 1st, 1922, and subsequent thereto some of this
Company's employees left the service without consulting or securing per
mission from proper authority.
"The extent to which this suspension of work is executed will auto
matically throw out of employment many employees who are in no way
connected with alleged grievances of employees who left the service, and
further, it must be realized that the Railway Company as a public serv
ant is obligated to perform its functions, and in order to do so, it can no
longer excuse or ignore the apparent unwarranted action of employees
who left the service in the manner described.
"In view of the above facts, this is to advise that employees who are
in service at this time, or who may have been excused from service by
proper authority, or who report for service at or prior to commencing
time of their regular assignment, Monday, July 10, 1922, will retain their
seniority. Those who do not return as indicated herein will be consid
ered as having elected to terminate their employment with this Com
pany and if re-employed will return as new men.
"Let it be understood that any of the above mentioned employi
who suspended work, and who return to the service at or before the time
designated have the positive assurance that their seniority rights and pen
sions will be protected." c
We are prompted to take this action, fully appreciating our responsi
bility to the public and to those whom we are now employing.
What Hippenad in tht Villas Store,
To my great relief, Dicky's car,
sometime! a temperamental object,
proved to be entirely tractable. So
directly after brrakfatt, with Mother
Graham and Junior ensconced in the
tonneau, and ecstatic Marion betide
me, started for Eatlhampton.
My mother-in-law'! mood had not
improved even with the delicious
breakfast Katie had given us, and I
foresaw a day before me in which
Mother Graham, as Dicky a com
ment ran, "dared anybody to please
her." However, I did my best in the
way of occasional remarks, for 1
knew she hated to ride in silence,
"How bracing the air it!" I began
banally, afaird to choote any but the
"It's good enough," she returned
caustically, "but if you tell me that

have been guilty of using the over
worked old simile frequently. But to
me it is always especially appropriate.
There is something about the autumn
air which exhilarates.
Mother Graham Complains.
It's too warm for wine." I 're
turned with a mighty effort to make
my voice good-natured.
Warm? Warm? the repeated

Weill If this is what you call warm,
I'm glad I had sense enough to put
on this heavy coat. I d been freezing
to death if I hadn't. As it is I'm
shivering. And you'll have your death
of cold with just that sweater. But
then you never will take anybody!
I had heard this tirade manv times
before, but I never cease being
alarmed by one feature of it. When
Mother Graham speaks of feeling
chilly we all come to heel. She has
had too many narrow escape! from
pneumonia for us to take any
chances. I was fairly sure that she
was exaggerating when she talked of
shivering, but it behooved me. to find
out. So I swerved the car to the
side of the road and stopped it.
What in tunket has happened
now? something gcuie wrong with
this car? I knew if I started"
"Nothing is wrong with the car.
Mother." I interrupted, "but you
spoke of shivering and I thought
perhaps if I put the rear curtains or.
they would keep the breeze away.
You mustn't get chilled."
she had the grace to look a bit
ashamed of herself, but her voice
lost none of its sharpness. j
The Man of Mystery.
"When I want the curtains on I'll
tell you," ahe snapped. "If I want
to shut myself up inside curtains I
can stay at home. I'm not going to
get any hurt. You drive along and
get there some time."
I accordingly "drove along the
winding road through stretches of
rrimcval forest to the lovcliett of all
ong Island villages. I never drive
through its ancient Common with its
pond in which drooping willows are
mirrored, with its churchyard sloping
to the pool, with the stately ancient

Hut there is a very modem tide to
the old village, nevertheless, and we
presently reached it and parked be
fore a most attractive looking store,
which to my eyes seemed most met
ropolitan. Once inside, Mother Graham, with
lorgnette held before her eyes, swept
up one aisle and down another with
the statelinrss and ill-nature of a
cross old swan. A patient, courteous
saleswoman who had ottcn waited on
me to my entire satisfaction tried in
vain to please iter, while the pro
prietor and the other clerks, mo
mentarily idle, looked on, creditably
concealing their amusement or an
noyance probably both at her
caustic comments, and I felt my
cheeks getting hotter and more crim
son with every succeeding outburst
upon her part.
We had reached the rear of the
store, and I with Junior had taken
shelter behind a rack of draperies,
when there was a flurry no other
word describes it in the front of the
store, as proprietors and salespeople
stepped forward to greet several per
sons who had just entered together.
And when I saw the foremost figure
I drew back still farther.

man who had frightened yet befriend
