Problems That Perplex
; Mother-ln-ljw Aaln.
Dear Mtsa Fairfax: I'm engaged
to a young man, but he now Uvea
with hie mother, and ah haa Invited
. heraelf to maKa her home with me.
Now, she haa (our married daugh
tera with whom I think she should
make her home. Don't you think
her place la With' her daughters?
If I break the engagement woufd I
be doing wrong? She le a woman of
a disagreeable disposition.
If you love the man you're plan
ning to marry, you ought to have
only the tenderest feelings for, his
mother. There's no question of with
whom she ought to make her home.
Mothers are likely to feel a great
deal of attachment for only sons,
and If your fiance's mother longs to
stay with him, aren't you a little
selfish to try to turn her out and
send her Into the already estab
lished home of one of, her daughters?
. Fourteen Years Difference.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am a man
ot middle age and in love with a girl
14 years my Junior. I've never been
married nor have I been in love be
fore, neither did I come to believe
that there was any such thing as
love, but now I know I was wrong.
I love her, even though I fully
reajize',niy age. Do you think that
a young woman can be happy with
a man of my age, as I would not
like to see her unhappy? A. S.
Agre Isn't a barrier when two peo
ple belong to the same generation
and have tastes In common and
share hopes and ambitions. If you
love a girl 14 years your Jimlor, per
haps your experience will make
you the more tender and under
standing and give her a greater
chance of beauty and love and con
tentment. Fresh Air Fan How perfectly
shocking in this day and age. Guess
you'll have to be the self-appointed
missionary and try to convert the
girl to the necessity of fresh air.
When you think we spend one-third
of our lives in bed, you realise what
an amount of fresh air you cut off
sleeping in an unventilated room.
Try to make your friend see that if
she goes to bed with all the windows
wide open she will sleep better, have
fewer bad dreams, and feel like a
new person In the morning.
B. 6. S. There are 100 members
of the house ot representatives in
this state, and 33 senators. Douglas
county has 12 representatives and
five senators. Consult your county
clerk about the other officers you
are Interested in. 1

The Disconcerting Request with
Which Dicky Troubled Madge.
. The fear that the man Smith
would try to revenge himself upon
Dicky, now that he knew he was
living within a mile of us, became al
most a mania with me in the hours
following my encounter with the
man upon the woodland road. -
Perhaps my obsessing wish that
my husband should get away from
the vicinity affected Dicky tele
pathically. At any rate, much to
my relief, upon the evening of the
same day which had brought Smith
back upon my mental horizon, Dicky
casually announced that he thought
he would run up to New York for
two or three days.
"I ought to have gone before," he
said, and I knew the statement was
but a mild truth. "I've got a mil
lion things to give. the once over.
But I was too lazy when I first came
home, and then mother's accident--and
yours-r-but you can get along
all right now, can't you, with Katie
back on the job?"
"Of course," I said, almost . a(
shade too promptly, for I did not'
want Dicky to guess that I wished
him out of the way. That he did
fathom my desire but, of course,
not the fear behind the wish
knew when he gave a short little
"It will give you a clear field for
your diplomatic researches," he said
with the suspicion of a sneer, but the
little taunt drew no irritated re
sponse from me. Instead, my mental
thermometer indicated' a sudden rise,
her between the lines I could read
Dicky's surrender in the issue be
tween us that of my helping Lil
lian in her secret work for the gov
Neither of us had until now re
ferred to that tense moment when
Dicky had laid down the law so em
phatically to mc with such strenu
ous, almost tragic results. I knew
that my husband never would refer
to it again, and that this was hfs
way of telling me that he had
rescinded his prohibition. But on
my part I made a little resolve to
keep as much out of the thing as 1
possibly could without hindering
I knew though I had in times
past tried to gloss over the knowl
edge that I welcomed the thrill of
helping in the great game, of being
a tiny part of it, far more than did
my childish melodrama-lovinr moth
er-in-law. I suppose it is because
women for so many centuries have
been fettered with the humdrum that
they welcome so joyously any
chance to do the things which cus
tom and the will of their men folk
have kept from them.
"Lock It Up-."
"Can I heb you get ready?" I
asked the customary perfunctory
question to cover my silence at
Dicky's gibe, and received his stereo
.'Yes, you canleave me alone and
not bother me."
My knowledge of my husband
taught me neither to take offence at
this retort nor to pay any attention
to it. I stationed myself in my room,
opening xfrom his, and pretended to
be busy with some sewing, knowing
that before he was ready for his
journey he would summon me many
The early train to the city, which
is almost imperative if one does not
wish to waste most of the day in
travel, makes it impossible for ease
loving, procrastinating Dicky to wait
until the morning to make his prep
arations for the journey. He has
missed the train two or three times
by attempting that feat, and has
finally submitted to the regime of
packing his bag and shaving, leaving
nothing for the morning but a dash
into his clothes and a snatch at a
bite of breakfast. . ,
But the necessity always makes
him ill-natured, and I had hard work
to keep my resentment at his caustic
little flings from betraying itself.
Nevertheless, I managed it, and at
last he declared himself ready for
Much obliced, old dear, he said
with a sort of rough ungraciousness.
"You're a good scout, if you are a
little balmy in the bean. And now,
for the love of Mike, turn out that
light and let me get to sleep. I'll
only have five or six hours. By the
way, do you know where that Span
ish comb is that Ede left out here
last spring? I've been trying to
remember to bring it in to her ever
since, but I've never thought of it
until I've seen her. Look it up for
me, that's a good girl, and slip it
into my bag. Fix it so it won't
"It's in a case." I heard myself
saying, "it wont break. Ill get
it right away."
Time enough in the morning.
Dicky said sleepily. "Turn out that
lisrht I told voul Good-nie-ht."
