Advice to Lovelorn
"Wnltlnt: for Man."
Dear MIbs Faii fax: I am , 20 and hav
been going out for two and a hallNyeari
with a man of 23 years, who Ifl much in lov
with me and who wishes to mar. y me. He
ii good natured, ambltloua, and I care for
htm very much, but he is not In a poaUlon
flnanrlally to support a wife and may not
he for two or three yt-ais. He objects
st'rrnusly to my going out with other men,
but I think I should go out and enjoy life
while I'm young. I have explained to blm,
but he Insists that I should not go out
with other men, and says that I do not
care for him if I have Intentions of going
with other men, which I do not want to
make him believe. J-1-
I can understand that you do not want
to make yourself conspicuous by going about
entirely with a young man who la not In a
position to marry you. A great many girls
lt tike circumstances do go out with other
men. But I feel that If one mrfn Is occu
pying your heart. It Is mercenary and cold
iiKioflfd to go about with other men merely
i '.civ sc they - can buy you social dlver-s'i--ri
e-id protect yo'u from gneslp. I think
imchf muTiimise by going about occa
sionally I;- :a'-ii'-9. but I honestly cannot
Ma how h girl who loves one man can find
vny pleasu -r in going out with othera. Wait
ing for a man Is not easy for a girl. And
r am not a bi-lievei; In long engagements,
however, the question of long engagements
;s a personal matter which every girl
muat settle fo herself. Waiting Is no eas
ier for him thnn for you, and If you care
for him unaeliishly you ought to lighted his
-a ?
Broad-minded indeed in its attitude toward fashion is
the stole above, Jut it isn't by itself in that; there will be
many stoles quite as generous to keep it company. This
one is of ermine, stopped from gfling to even greater lengths
by a row of ermine tails on each end. The muff is of the
new oval "cantaloupe type, and, in common with other new
arrivals, it is trimmed on the lower side with ermine tails.
Furs, even .without their usual summer hibernation,
come out with all sorts of new ideas about fur physiology.
The muff above, of moleskin and ermine, has a fringe of
ermine tails across its apron, and was so generous with
itself little seemed left to make a collar, so the moleskin
neckpiece has to be very close to make ends meet. The
brown velvet hat has a jet dragon to guard the crown.
Capes made tentative littie monies at the mode this
winter, and fashion encouraged them with bits of favor
until she trapped them as neatly as the hunter trapped the
animal to make this Kolinsky cape. So now fashion makes
the most of her catch, and capes will be admitted this win-ter-,in
all the best circles. This very handsome Kolinsky
cape at the right is an especially good circle which falls
almost to the elbows.

Days When the Friend is Dearest
"What do you think of Mrs. X?" a
young lady friend asked me the other
day, and I replied that I considered
Mrs. X a very nice woman. Isn't it
the ordinary thing to say of people
if you have no objection to them?
But she wasn't satisfied.
"No; but what do you think of her,
really?" she asked.
She is a young lady who can be
very serious at time, and now, when
I looked at her, I read something in
her eyes that told me she was ask
ing me a serious question. She was
in earnest about Mrs. X. Her ques
tion was one of those that suddenly
load one with a responsibility as to
how one answers them. They are
abominably disagreeable if you can't
say much in favor of the person in
quired about. Fortunately, I felt
none of that embarrassment now.
"Mrs. X is one of the best women,
and one of the truest and wisest I
ever knew," I answered.
. She gave a big sigh of relief nd
her face brightened. The little cloud
of anxiety.had passed away from it.
"I am so glad," she cried. ' I like
her myself, and somehow somehow
I thought she might be a friend. One
gets to know such a lot of people,
doesn't one? But there's something
something with many of them that
"That closes vour lips when vou
would like to speak about the things
that are of importance and dearest to
vour I broke in as she stammered.
She nodded her head
The person to whom one can speak
about such matters is a rarity how
rare we discover the longer we live.
Early in life we flatter ourselves we
shall make hosts of friends who will
'e intensely interested in us. Even
f they haven't the sense to be so. we
ell ourselves that we cannot do with
out them.
A friend of Sir Charles Russell, the
celebrated lord chief justice, told me
that upon one occasion, when he
heard someone sing a song about the
famous miller who used to boast, "I
care for nobody and nobody cares for
me," and whistled his independence
Sir Charles expressed the opinion
that that miller was one of the most

"But perhaps a good many of us
are like that at one time of our lives,"
he added. "We find out what foois
we have been later."
We are meant to care for somebody
and that somebody should care for us.
The solitary person-goes mad and the
lonely heart withers in bitterness.
Sympathy is a necessity of our nature
and we discover it in time. In the
meantime, though we scrape along
pretty well without much of it. The
merely "nice" person suffices during
days when the sun is shining and all
is well; and it is astonishing how
"nice" some people can be, isn't it?
Christie Murray once went to din
ner at the house of a friend who had
a wife extraordinarily skilled in con
fectionery, the blot upon the din
ner was that she had paid so much
attention to the cakes that she had
forgotten the meat and potatoes. It
was not a satisfactory meal tor a per
son with an appetite. It left, Murray
declared, "a yearning for something."
There are times when we lack actual
sincerity and honesty, and when the
mere jam of niceness won't do, "just
as well." In times of stress we would,
as school boys say, "swop" a good
many of our nicest acquaintances for
one sincere friend for one with
whom we can exchange confidences
and sympathy. Could not we help
them, and could not they help us?
For underneath the appearance of
mere niceness men and women are, as
Mark Twain remarked, queer things
more real and better than they ap
pear on the surface. Most people
would not for the world allow you
to suspect that they are halt as
"roubled as they really are, or thai
they are half as capable of feelir for
others as they are.
Many are, with regard to the con
cealment of their troubles much like
two old diplomatists of whom I once
heard DeBlowitz, the great Journalist,
tell the story. They were it meet at a
eception and each resolved it was
nost important to impress the other
Each squeezed himself into the mos)
imposing uniform he possessed. It
was horribly uncomfortable, but it
'lad to be done. Then they met. They
stood engaged in conversation for
over half an hour, and neither would
confess to the other that he was dying
tj sit down. In the end they parted
to seek their carriages, and went
home to bed to recover. Each was a
martyr to gout, and neither would
confess it. They reviled one another
bitterly afterward.

Druggist Says -
Black-Draught Best
M. R. Blowers, druggist, of South Creek, N. C, writes this letter: "I hav
been afflicted for many years and have tried many aorta or kinds of L.edt
cine for Indigestion, but the Black-Draught excels all medicines 1 evei
tried. I went to using your medicines when I ate anything it would soap
teel as though I were loaded down with rocks in my stomach . . . After
using your preparation my stomach feels like a new one." If you Buffer from
Indigestion, from a stomach that seems "loaded down with rocks" aftei
meals, this druggist's experience must carry conviction of the merit of this
purely vegetable preparation, Thedford's Black-Draught. Mr. Flowers used
many remedies and then says: "Black-Draught excels any 1 have evei
tried." Why don't you try it? At all druggiata 25 cents a package. S-2J

This shell fish, if it has been cooked
alive, as it ought to be, will have a
stiffness in the tail, which, if gently
raised, will return with a spring. In
order to be good, lobsters should be
weighty for their bulk; if light they
will be watery, and those of the me
dium size are always the best. .They
should be broad across the tail. In
boiling lobsters, the appearance of
the shell will be much improved by
rubbing over a little butter or olive
oil on 'being immediately taken from
the pot.
Take one boiled lobster, separate
the body from the tail, break off the
great claws and crack them at the
joints without injuring the meat and
split the tail in halves. Pick the meat
from the sheel and cut it up into small
pieces; put in four tablespoonfuls of
while stock, two tablespoonfuls of
cream and pounded mase and cayenne
to taste into a stewpan, add the lob
ster and let it simmer gently for six
minutes. Serve it in the shell, which
must be nicety cleaned, and (tarnish
with parsley and lemon quarters.
