Saturday evening Happy Hollow club opened for the summer season
in spite of the fact that the weather closely resembled winter with its
chilling breezes. .
The number, of diners was very large, thus making it necessary to
place tables on the dance floor which ,is not enclosed. This prospect,
lowever, did not daunt those in charge. The openings were closed with
leavy canvas curtains, and on each table was placed a smalj glowing
object, a tiny electric heater, whose warm rays quickly dispelled the
gloom and chill. The heaters were most effective in their usefulness
and made unique decoratitons. In the main dining room logs were heaped
in the fireplace and the crackling flames lent a cheery atmosphere to the

Problems That Perplex
l Answered by
Doesn't Know Her Mind.
Bear Miss Fairfax: Although
this is the first time I have written
to you for advice, I think that you
will be able to help me with trou
bles which cause me to worry
sometimes. r. -
( am only 16 and am a senior in
high school, and like most other girls
am Quite friendly with everyone
and, seems to me, 'mostly with -boys.
But my trouble is this, not long
aso I kept company with a boy and
went with him for a short time.
When I was away from him I liked
him but when with him,! was In
misery. ,. .
So, of course, we didn't go to
gether very much longer. . Then he
started going with another gtrl who
happened to be my chum. And af
ter not going with him for a while,
I began to like him again. So he
went with me and then with her.
His steady girl did not like this so
she stopped going with him.
Now, I am in a puzzle, for my
sisters and brothers do not want me
to keep company with him. I like
him real well but don't know of a
reason to tell him why I can't go
With him. Now, Miss Fairfax, I
wish you would please advise me
what to tell him and also whrft to do.
Apparently you don't want this
young man but you don't want any
one else to have him. That Indi
cates selfishness and Jealousy, two
rather bad things. Also I discover
from your letter that you don't know
your own mind. Tou deserve to
lose the friendship of this young
man for your lack of. consideration
for his feelings.
My advice to you is that you give
up any thought of him until you
know your own mind, or at least
until you can give him a sincere
friendship. This idea of liking a
boy when away from him and being
in misery when with him is nothing
more than a bad mental state. Start
in now to control your thinking and
your conduct and you may be in
time to save yourself and others
much unpleasantness and unhappi
ness in life. If you do not care to
go with this young man, tell him so
politely and honestly. . ;
Florence: Tou could do one of
two things: Either get a sympa
thetic tutor who could teach you the
. thlncs you need . -to know about
reading, mathematics, penmanship.'
omitting the things you hnvtOearned
throoitli experience, or .: " i could
enroll In a business folKg.'. where
Sou can get instruction iu iho sub
jects you mention. Tour letter proves
that you have learned considerable
without going to, school, and I be
lieve you would be equal to a straight
business course. . I would be glad to
talk to you personally if you will call,
or I am sure any person connected
with a business college will be glad
to take pains with one whose aims
ari as commendable as yours seem,
A Curious Threat,
i Dear Miss Fairfax: I am a man
of 28 and have been keeping com
pany with a girl of 25 for some time.
I love her and she loves me, but my
parents don't like her, and if I mar
ry her they threaten to disown me.
Do you think this is right? She is a
respectable girl. Do you think that
a girl should be- Judged by her par
ents and Other relatives? This hap
pens to be their reason for -disliking
her. . Kindly answer soon, Miss Fair
fax, as I am anxious. K. F. B.
Kdncy. a man of 28 afraid of being
disowned! Aren't you making enough
to support the girl without depend
ing upon your parents? Tou ought
to be! As for shirting the parents'
sins onto the daughter, how about
reversing the case and putting your
self on trial for what your parents
might have been. I don't think the
girl will be getting any prze pack
age if that's the kind of young man
you are! ,
Skih trouble needs imme
diate attention. Buy a
jar of Resinol Ointment to
day and use it regularly.
. A few days of such persijt
ent treatment usually , ,
tops the iteming, clears "
away the inflammation and
soreness, and helps the skin
resume its natural healthy
condition. At all draniats.

With the onrushing days of spring
there is always that extra sewing to
be done. The little tots must have
their rompers the eirl their mid
dies and the boys their wash suits.
This means work unless mother is
prepared for such emergencies, and
the best way to prepare is to have
in the home to ue each and every
day of the year. The Two-Spool El

of bobbins you sew direct from the
