Iron Board Cover
The cover on the ironing board
may be made of old sheets, but is
better made of., new heavy un
bleached sheeting 60 inches wide.
This allows, the width of muslin to
form the length of the cover. The
cover should be hemmed and four
pieces of tape firmly sewed to each
side so that it can be easily put on
and taken off. Ready-made covers
laced together through eyelets are
also convenient. There are various
spring devices for holding the cover
together, but tome of them are likely
to tear it.
A sheet of asbestos placed under
the iron rest and the paper or cloth
used for cleaning the iron, protects
the" .muslin cover from scorching.
Some bards have a piece of tiff
about eight inches wide tacked
across the-end on which the iron is
to stand.

Problems That Perplex
Anwcrt by
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
Please help me decide some ques
tions in mind. I have been keeping
company with a young lady for
nearly a year. 1 asked hor some
time ao if sshe would marry me;
she said, "1 Will let you know some
We do not live in the name towp,
but will see each other Thanksgiv
ing day. I am sure she will tell me
then and I believe she will nay "yea."
If she does, what will be proper for
me to tell her? How long after
wards will I buy the ring? We will
be at her home. Is it necessary to
ask her father for her, and, if so.
what shall I say o him? She has
been "stepping out" with other fel
lows. Is this all rlfiht, or should
I object, to it? Who sets the wed
ding day, or should both of us?
Should I ask her how larjre a dia
mond to buy? A SUBSCRIBER.
If the girl says "yes" say what
you really mean. Tell her It makes
yon happy, or talk over plans for
the future, or whatever is natural.
Be spontaneous. Don't plan too
closely what you will say, but try
to be sincere with your words. The
rule about "seeing father" is not as
strict as it once was,, but it seems
to me a young man should address
the girl's father on the "subject.
The matter of the ring is up to
you. You might ask the girl of she
prefers a diamond or some other
stone. If she is like most girls she
will prefer the diamond. You
should say nothing to her about the
size of the stone. Buy a ring which
you think will please her. making
It as nice as you can afford. H is
perfectly natural for ft girl to like a
pretty diamond, but she is not the
right kind of a girl if she wants
vou to buy a large stone Just to sat
isfy vanity, whether you can afford
it or not. If she accepts you on
Thanksgiving, it seems to me Christ
mas would be a good time to present
her the ring.
So long as you are not engaged, it
Is all right for her to go with other
fellows. If she accepts you Thanks
giving, you might tell her that it
hurts you when she goes with other
follows, and she probably will not
contlnyde to go with them. That,
however, Is a matter you should
leave largely to her good taste and
You should talk over the wedding
day together, deciding upon an ap
proximate time. Let the girl Bet
It he exact date.
Iilltie Miss Doubtful Your letter
sounds straightforward. Why
should there bo anything wrong in
knowing a man of 2D? Many men
of that age lire very fine. The man
is considerably older thun you and
I would advise you not to he too
hasty in developing the friendship.
It is all right for the man to stop
at the hotel in your town when he
comes to see you, but you should
make it clear to him before he
comes that you car.not entertain him
In your home. Tell him truthfully
that your sisters and their husbands
will be with you over Christmas, and
that it will be necessary for him to
stop at the hotel. But you can tell
him your table is large and you will
expect him to Join the family there
for meals and In every other way to
be at home at your house. He may
prefer not to Join you at breakfast,
but you may invite him.
Yes, if he comes all the way from
Cleorgte. to see you, give him a
Christmas present. A fountain pen,
something in leather goods, or even
a tie pin, would be appropriate. The
gift should not be elaborate or too
personal, but should represent to
some extent your kindly feeling.
E. N. Some of the best men In
the world are fat men. It Is very
evident you Ad noW care for the
man in question, but you seem dis
posed to trifle with him. If you
can't give him sincere friendship, lt
him alone and t least don't hurt
his feelings and destroy his con
fidence in women.
