Problems That Perplex
Too Much Repression.
Dear Miss Fairfax: "Modest's"
letter ami the replies thereto have
prompted me to write you and ask
if you will kindly help me solve my
problem, or allow It to be discussed.
The trouble is, I am too matter-of-fact
and do not "take." I am con
vinced that this is a result of being
endowed with a serious and shy dls-.
position, intensified by a narrow en
vironment. Circumstances Inspired
me with a desire to succed in the
business world and I "landed" in a
place minus young people but plus
responsibility. My home. is without
social activities, due to parents ad
vanced in years, who maintain that
since I have a home and my work,
what more do I want Of course I
understand their position; their lives
have been all work and no play, and
now, being: old, company is a bother.
Because of my love for them and the
realization 'that they need me (not
financially), I have stifled my crav
ings for friends and enjoyments. I
have only a few girl friends and a
little amusement occasionally, the
latter, however, after much arguing.
Now in the late twenties, when I
should be "settled," I am discontent
ed and still long for a broader hori
zon, realizing that a good may girl
hood years have gone by that should
have been more care-free and full of
fun. I cannot help but feel that the
Divine Plan was that we, all, should
live as complete lives as possible,
mingling with people, and not live
exclusively to ourselves. It seems as
though jolly people get so much
more out of life than the serious
ones. How can too . earnest young
people change their natures, and does
it pay? .Have they traits which on
set those of the happy-go-lucky? I
wonder if each one of us is chastened
by some trying experience.
The only remedy I. can see for me
is to seek a congenial employment
in some other town; but, as I want
to be fair, I am torn between the fol
lowing conflicting emotions: The de
sire to "stick" to the home folks.,
for "blood is thicker than water,"
and the desire to fare forth, as I be
lieve I owe it to myself to rYiake the
most of my life. Some day when I
have no paternal roof, I will have
to rely on my own resources, anyway.
Which shall it be, Miss Fairfax?
Why not master the situation
where you are? Young company in
the home cannot harm your parents.
They will probably grow to like it.
Yours is a fine letter but I see your
life has been too full of repression.
Give it more expression. Read some
books (not too far advanced) on
philosophy and psychology and try
to "find yourself."

I have never tasted anything more
delicious than the sausages which
Marion broiled on pointed sticks over
our or rather her camp fire, and
the coffee which Lillian expertly
brewed. She had disdained the sug
gestion of Katie's coffee in a vacuum
bottle as "being insufferably ' civil
ized." Katie had provided . sand
wiches, devilled eggs, olives-, and
Marion's favorite little cakes, and
we did full justice to them,, but
there is a flavor to food, cooked over
a wood fire in the open . air .which
is never equalled elsewhere.
"Talk about being gorged to re
pletion," Lillian said when we had
finished. "Whoever first" invented
that mouth-fiilling phrase "must have
iiad me in mind. I don't feel as if. I
wanted to move for a week." .
We had taken the robes and cush
ions from the car and were stretched
out luxuriously under the budding
trees. That is,, Lillian and I were
resting. Marion' was industriously
building up her fire, putting water
to boil in a small kettle which we
had brought along.

myself." she announced enthusiasti

for being a scout when I can find a

rueful side glance at her mother.
Lillian explained in a low Voice as
Marion busied herself with 'the dish

join the scouts, according to their
rules, but in the city I can't bear to

the famous artist, who has loved her
so many years, and whom Marion,

who treated her mother with such
awful injustice, herself with neglect.

It is to all who have learned that old meth
ods are wrong. And that, despite the tooth
brush, teeth discolor and decay.
Clouded by a film
Teeth are clouded by a dingy film. At first
it is viscous you can feel it It clings to
' teeth, gets between the teeth and stays.
Old ways of brushing do not effectively
combat it. Much of the film remains. Then
, night and day it may do ceaseless damage.
Most tooth troubles are now traced to film,
. and those troubles have been constantly in
creasing. ' ' .
It is the film-coats that discolor, not the
teeth. Film is the basis of tartar. It holds
food substance which ferments and forms .
acid. It holds the acid in contact with the
. teeth to cause decay.
Germs breed .by millions in it. They, with
tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea. Also
of other serious troubles, local and internal.
Science combats it
Dental science, after long research, has
found ways to combat film. Able authorities
have amply proved them. Now leading den-,
tists, here and abroad, advise their daily use.
These effective methods are embodied in
a dentifrice called Pepsodent Thus one may
twice a day apply them in a most delightful
way. Millions already'do this, and to them it
has brought a new era in teeth cleaning.' -
