No doubt the dressmaker creates

A Passing Fancy.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I am
a young girl -of U and am very much la
love with a young man ot perhaps II.
i When he left me the other evening I
did not ask him to return and h ha not
I It proper for a girl to ask a young
man to return; would he think you were
trying to "get a date?"
He seems to think a great deal of Vie,
and I am sure the love Is returned. Wa
have known each other for only a short
time, but that does not seem to make any
difference with us. ' '
Now, do you believe In love at first light,
or do you think it is Just a passing feel
Pleas answer me through The Omaha
Be and I shall be very much delighted, a
I feel you can help me out In my won
dering about this love affair.
And pleas tell me I It proper to allow
young men to kiss you' before yon are en
gaged T Tour truly. K. R, D.
I think under the circumstances I would
wait for him to ask to com again. I
wouldn't spend so much time thinking about
the young fallow, and, a tot allowing him
to kiss you, don't do It at any time, for
you only 'cheapen yourself In his aye. Te.
I think this I only a passing fancy and t
predict that in a year or two ybu will won
