Whoso Is tho It t ns?
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
Answering: your query as to which
of the contracting parties to an en.
Kagement should retain the ring In
rase on engagement is broken, I
think this, like all other questions,
has at least two sides.
Should a quarrel be the cause of
the broken troth no self-respecting
girl would care1 to keep a trinket,
whlchk would be to her a constant
reminder of her former lover, who
wouid in all probability lose no time
in transferring his affections to an
other quarter. If through mis
fortune, their anticipations of mar
riage could not be brought to a real
ization, then, too, the ring, which
would be a constant reminder of the
happy days, could be nothing but
an unhappy reminder to her of
things she had better forget. If it
is the. .ring instead of the man she
wants, a man ahead to
buy her . a ring and leave her.
I know a girl who boasted at one
time , of having seven engagement
rings, in her jewel case. Evidently
she was collecting"" rings.

On tbe other hand, a man may
not care to have his ring returned
and sometimes asks the girl to keep
it as a souvenir of their friendship.
Cases of this kind differ, and none
but a "specialist" will be able to
diagnose the subject- thoroughly
enough to make a correct decision
that will apply to all cases.
-If the rm-is a valuable one the
plrr, in -my ' estimation, should re
turn it, as perhaps the money the
young man has "tied up" in it, will
be needed toward supporting a' fam
Uy lit after years. Surely' no mar
ried woman wants to see another
woman wearing a ring her husband
has purchased even at a , remote
period. -

To Whom Does Rina; Belong?
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
In answer to Miss Welcome's ques
tion, 'To whom does the engagement
ring belong?" I wish to state that in
mv opinion the ring belongs to the
girl, just as much as her wedding
ring. If the engagement ring should
be returned when an engagement is
broken then the wedding ring should
also be returned in case of a di
vorce. E. B. V. ,
Why Did lie lieave?
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I
have often read the good advice you
have given to. many, so I am coming
to ask a few questions.
1. I am a young girl of 19 winters,
have dark blue eyes, dark brown
Khair and a fair completion; am
quite good looking. I was engaged
twice, but broke both .engagements.
Now, Miss Fairfax, do you think I
have lost all hopes of getting an
other? , .
S. Was going with a young boy
whom 1 loved very much: one eve
ning he took a girl friend of mine
to the show, who was a very bad
girl. Of course I got very angry.
He came to see me for about ft week
after. All at once he loft town and
Lhave never seen htm since. Miss
I'alrrax, what do you suppose he
left for? He seemed to love me very
much at first.
Am thanking you In advance.
- There are a hundred reasons the
5'oung man might have had for leav
ing town. What particular one1 he
had I do not know. But I do know
his conduct indicates that he does
not love you and therefore the bst
thing for you to do is to forget about
him. Doubtless you wtll have other
opportunities to become engaged,
to marry a good man and to be wor
thy of bim. rather tban to rnary JuBt
anyone who happens to ask you.
