An advertising club is a pooling proposi

what he takes away is In reality what

Dear Mini Fairfax: I am it years old.
I have been clerking In a grocery store
thla summer and X met a traveling man,
who must love me truly, because lis has
spent so much money on me. He takes
me auto riding and to the dances and
has taught me how to tango. He la mar
ried, la the only trouble, but he don't
love his wife since he met me, snd he
haa won my heart. Hut my parents ob
ject to our romance. They want to aend
me away for a while because they think
I will forget htm. I think I ahould obey
my heart and atay In the atore, where we
can see each other. People have told me
things against his character, but I refuse
to believe them because 1 know he la my
affinity. Do you think we are doing any
thing wrong? 1 am worried because peo
ple are inclined to talk. Your advice and
Interest will be greatly appreciated.
Tou need a spanking, and will probably
get It, It your parents find out what you
are up to. The traveling man you refer
to is a sneak and a disgrace to bis kind.
No man with any spark of honor would
be guilty of putting such foolish notions
into the head of a girl of your age. He
means you no good, and you ought to
avoid him as you would a pestilential
Dear kites Fairfax: I am a young girl.
U years old, but big for my age. While
on my way home from a distant town
about a week ago I started to flirt with
a flagman on the train, but fell deeply in
love with him after I had talked to titm
and he had treated me tc uranuta enu
pop. When my station arrived he started
off the train with me, and when we were
paaalng through the vrstlbula he klss.Ml
me on the cheek and said he hoped to
meet me again. While at the atatlon the
other evening I aaw lie waa on the traiu

very much hurt because he didn't apeak.
Tell me what I can do. aa the suspense
Is killing me. Woulld It be ail right to
invite him upon hla next lay-off from the
train? I am anxious to read your advl'-e
at once. S. N.
You are a very silly little girl. Love
should not enter your head for tha next
ten years. Try to forget thla adventure
aa quickly as you can, for If you do not,
the day will come when you will recall it
only with ahame.

Dear Miss FairFax: I am a girl II
years of age and disDlv in love with a
young man three years my senior. Now
this young man has asked me to become
his wife. What I wanted to know Is, sm
1 too young to marry? I am almost sure
I would make a good wife and am sure
he would make a very good husband.
Please advise me what to do. M. A. P.
Many a girl has married at II and lived
happy ever after. Tet it would be better
to wait a couple of years If you can.
True love will easily stand that test and
lose none of Its Joys.
Tee Old (or Yea.
Dear Miss Fairfax: Will you please tell
me If It is wrong to love a lady tea er
fifteen years oluer then you. I sm It and
trie lady la 13. 1 make IIS a month and I
do not .drink. I love her, but she says
shs Is too old to make a wife for me, I
4ell her it makes no difference, so long
as I love her and give har a home and
he good and kind ii her. I don't think
the age makes any difference aa long as
we love one another. V. J.
The lady la old enough te be your
mother and apparently baa too much
good sense to think of marrying you.
Hhe might love you as a son, but never
as a husband. Age doee meke a w.ighty
difference when it comes te marital happiness.

"Ha," cried the old man, "your case

philanthropist, "that you would not seri
