"Jeslousy," some one once wisely wrote.
"Is said to be the offspring- of love. Yet

The heart of a man and the heart of a

But whichever It Is the first sees the

this Is rare: but Jealousy may exist with

less than on that which Is sweet, and is

women who come to me with their talcs

the offspring of love, but the child of
pride. It hurts to see one they had

Many of the authors of these letters,
If honest, will confess that it is not love
for the object which has aroused their
jealousy, but the fear that some one
else may take possession.
But whatever the sentiment at the
fbundatlon of jealousy, beware of it. To
every one who is experiencing Its pangs,
I make this plea: Have faith.

Dear Mist Fairfax; About nine months
ago I met a young man six years my sen-;
lor. He called, on me once every two
weeks and promised to call every week
within a few more weeks. He haa told ,
me he loves me or he would not call to i
see me, as he lives quite some distance
from me. Now, as he has not spoken to I
me about any engagement, I am at a loss
as what his Intentions are. I hava many
chances, but do not care to have the
young men call on account of this other
gentleman, and since I love this young,
man very much. I do not care to give
him up unless I find out that he has no
serious Intentions and so Is wasting my
time. Would it be proper to ask him hts"
Intentions? E. H.
