Problems That Perplex
Dear Miss Fairfax: Lately I have
become acquainted with a young boy
from M'ssouri, who says he had a
desire to see the world and started
1 have found he is decent and I
value his friendship highly. Now
the question is there is talking go
ing around about him leaving home
and being here so far from home.
Of course, I have no proof, but his
word, that he left of his own will.
But there are people here who know
nothing about him and are saying
impolite things about him, etc.
He is decent as far as I know and
:t hurts him and myself to have hi;n
What should ,1 do. They tell me
I am ruining my reputation by go
ing with him.
I can't see why they should talk
when they don't know anything
about him. Can't you tell me any
thing to do? Should I give him
up entirely or stick it out and show
fhese people who are doing the talk
ing that he is all right, as I am sure
he is. He asked me for a picture
of myself to send his mother. Should
I give him one? From what I have
told you will you answer in Ihe
Omah Bee and tell me what I should
do? Another thing, I don't believe in
going with boys steady but m this
case I don't care to go with any
other but him. I have turned several
other boys down for him. Would it
be better for me to go with them
even if I do not really care t0-
I am voung to be going with
boys. Miss Fairfax, and will ap
preciate vour advice. I'm 16, nut
consider that old enough. Thanking
ou. I remain. GRACE.
Mv Dear Grace: I admire you for
sticking up for the boy from Mis
souri, and I think you are right to
tand by him in the face of unjusti
fied criticism. There is nothing more
cruel than provincialism which at
tacks a newcomer in town just be
cause he is a stranger. "So far from
home," they say, "he must be a shady
character." And all because he has
chosen to stand on his own feet in
the world, and perhaps had the
courage to break away from some
town where he lacked opportunity
and start for himself. Why shouldn't
a boy see something of the world
and broaden his horizon a bit, if he
works and keeps steady while he is
doing it? That is the pioneer spirit
we admire. The trouble with his
critics probably is that they never
stepptd out of their own township io
their lives. It might help them if
they tried a little traveling on their
own account. If the boy had chosen
to go to Alaska that would be noth
ing against him, and because he
changes from one middle western
state to another adjoining one they
dub him a rolling stone. I often won
der how some of the women whose
tongues wag so busily about other
women's sons would feel if their
sons happened to go to a new town
let us say in Missouri, and the peo;
pie in the town treated him as if he
were an escaped convict because he
was away from home. It is a sub
ject on which I feel strongly. But
for your own protection, Grace,
haven't you a father or a brother or
an uncle to whom you could appeal
to back up your own judgment on
the boy? You are pretty young, as
you say, and it is not hard for a
young girl to make a mistake in
judgment about a man. I see no rea
son why you should not let the boy
have a picture to send his mother. If
he really wants it for her it is a
sign in his favor. Unless your fam
ily and friends can prove something
definite to the boy's discredit I
should continue to be his friend, but
I would not turn down other invita
tions. You are too young to limit
yourself to riendthip with any one
man. You would miss a lot of good
times by so doing.

woods. So Cliffy Bear was much
pleated when old Mr. Crow told
him a bit of news.
"Tommy Fox is going to have a
party," Mr. Crow said to Cuffy one
day in his husky voice.
"Good!" Cuffy cried.
Old Mr. Crow gave him a side
"1 haven't heard," he remarked,
"that you're going to be invited."
"Tommy Fox won't leave me out
of the party," Cuffy retorted. "Why,
I'm one of the best-known people in

plied somewhat sourly. "Anyhow,
you certainly have the best-known
"Has Tommy Fox asked you to
come to his party?" Cuffy inquired.
Mr. Crow said he was too busy to
answer any questions. And he flap
ped away, leaving Cuffy Bear in a
most eager mood.
"I must find Tommy Fox," Cuffy
decided. So he began to prowl down
the mountainside. And not far from
the back pasture he discovered the
sly Thomas watching a mouse hole
beneath a tree.
"I hear you're going to have a par
ty," Cuffy began.
"Yes!" said Tommj Fox. "And it
will be a good one."
I suppose, Cufly remarked,
"there'll be plenty to eat."
Yes. indeedv! Tommy replied.
"There'll be enough for everybody."
What do vou expect to have lor
refreshments: Cuffy Bear inquired.
'Chicken! said Tommy rox with
a grin that showed his sharp teeth.
And he licked his lips as he spoke.
Chicken! Cuffy Bears repeated.
"Where are you going to get it?"
"I know a good place, was lom-
my's answer. "It's not a thousand
miles from here, either. Ana ne
glanced over his shoulder toward
the farm buildings, which nestled in
the valley below.
When are you going to have
your party Cuffy demanded.
lonight! lommy replied. 10-
night, if everything goes well. Of
course one can never ten exactly
when a party will take place, because
one can't always be sure about the
refreshments. And you know your
self that's what makes a party."
Cuffy Bear nodded his head.
"I could come tonight," he said
boldly, "or tomorrow night, or the
night after that."
And then Cuffy had a great disap
pointment. For Tommy Fox yawned
and said, "I'm not going to invite
any more people. The party's all
made up. Everything's settled. I
can't change my plans."
(Jh. dear! Cuffy exclaimed. I
wish I'd met vou before."
"I couldn't have asked you, any
how," Tommy replied.
How many are you going to have
t your party?1' Cuffy asked him.
"Two!" said Tommy Fox.
"Two!" Cuffy Bear cried in won-
der. "Is that all?"
"Yes!" Tommy Fox answered.
That's exactly the number to suit
me. It there were one more or one
less the party would be ruined."
Whos going to be there?' Cuffy
wanted to know.
Tommy Fox gave a slv smile be
fore he replied.

What Don Ramon Wanted Madge
It took all the firmness at my com
mand to meet the situation which the
sudden dath ol the mytierious Don
Kamon Almirez toward the door of
Ihe shop brought to me, That hit
pretended paroxysm of coughing was
but a run and that he meant to s peak
to me under its cover, I was very
ture, and 1 was terrified lest the
people with him, or worse still, my
mother-in-law, should detect hit
"Oh I Don Ramon I" The exclama
tion sounded from three voices as the
people with him followed him so
licitioutly. But he waved them back,
with a choking:
"Pirate people with me disturb
me. I shall be all right presently."
"But, you should" the pompous
man began fussily, when his daugh
ter interrupted him.
"Do shut up, Dad, she said with
the appalling disrespect of some
modern children. "Can't you see he
doesn't want us watching him cough
and choke? You wouldn't like it
yourself. Don't watch him.".
I was guiding Junior through the
door by this time, taking swift ad
vantage of the delay in Don Kamon's
progress caused by the fussy father's
interruption. But before I had
reached the street, he was close be
hind me, had jostled Junior, with a
clever pretended inadvertence and
was apologizing, hat in hand:
"A thousand pardons, madame
ah, but you are the decreet person!
Listen, you must give this to your
father from me"
A Secret Message.
He had stooped to the ground and
now brought up in his hand a wo
man's handkerchief which I realized
he mutt have carried for just, this en
counterand was holding it out to
me as if because of his jostling I had
dropped it. Mechanically I put out
my hand for it and felt it pressed
into my hand with something else
that rustled paper, I decided, and
then Don Ramon, bowing again,
But something entirely outside my
own volition brought low quick
words of warning to my lips.
"Don't go back till we have gone,"
I murmured. "She thinks she
He uttered but one word
"Ca-r-ram-ba!" Then he walked
rapidly toward the nearest drug
store, as I climbed into my car,
smillino; even through my trepida
tion at the burlesque which he had
put into the melodramatic word.
I guessed that the eyes behind the
thick-lensed glasses were gleaming
sardonically at me. and I was sure
of it, when safe in the shelter of the
druggist's doorway, he turned toward
the car, swept off his hat and made a
low bow, and then put his finger on
his lips with an air which made me
bite my lips to keep from laughing
I turned my switch key and
started the car. having first istuffed
the handkerchief and the rustling
paper enclosure deep into my bag1.
And then my mother-in-law and
Marion came out of the door of the
"Go on ahead, Marion," I heard
Mother Graham say while she
stopped and looked searchingly up
and down the street.
I cast an involuntary glance to
ward the druggist's door and was
thankful indeed that I culd see noth
ing of the mysterious Don Ramon.
He must have gone to the back of
the chemist's shqp, I decided, and
drew a breath of relief at this small
advantage in the catechism I saw
"Where did that jackanapes go?
my mother-in-law asked, when Mar
ion very prettily had assisted her
into the tonneau where Junior was
already -ensconced, and had then
climbed in beside me.
"What jackanapes?" I asked inno
cently, putting the gear in first, and
moving slowly away from the curb
where we were parked.
Don t try to pull any wool over
my eyes, Margaret!" my mother-in-
law retorted tartly. You know
very well whom I mean, that Don
whatever he calls himself who wftit
out right after you did. I saw him
bowing and scraping like the edu
cated chimpanzee in the zoo "
Well, he ought to have bowed and
scraped!" I declared with as much
pretended indignation as I could
muster. "He nearly knocked Junior
off his feet in his hurry to get out,
and my handkerchief flew out of my
nand, and of course he picked it up
and returned it. But he is a flourish-
er, isn't he? I wonder if he'll try
his airs on the druggist. I saw him
go in there, I suppose for something
for his cough."
You re explaining as much as it
you knew the man and were trying to
keep it dark," she commented caus
tically, but the suspicion had tone
from her oice, and I knew that my
explanation had satisfied her. But
