HoLZ, Of days gone by, love, to me o dear, There's a picture that in fancy oft appearing, Brings back the time, love, when you were near; It is then I wonder where you are, my darling, And if your heart for me is still the same; For the sighing winds and night-in-- gale Are breathing only your own sweet name. CHORUS Sweet Adeline, my Adeline, At night, dear heart, for you I pine; In all my dreams, your fair face beams, You're the flower of my heart, Sweet Adeline. I can see your smiling face as when we wandered ' Down by the brookside, just you and I, And it seems so real at times, 'till I To find all vanished a dream gone by; If we meet sometime in after years, my darling, I trust that I will find your love still mine, Tho' my heart is sad and clouds above are hovering. Twilight brings sighs and regretting. Moonlight means sweet dreams A you. Dear Miss Brooks: As you have helped so many others out we decided to ask you to help us, too. We are two girls, 17 ana 18, and have two boy friends, 19 and 20. Sometimes they tell us that they like us and other times they say they don't. Do you think they dot They take us everywhere we want to go and our folks do not object to us go-ing with them. The first day we met them they asked us to go to the show with them but we refused to go. Should we have gone? They have asked us to go with them to another town to celebrate the 24th of July. Our folks said we may go if we want to. Should we go? , When we are with a crowd of other people, our two friends drink whiskey in front of us girls. Is that right for them to do T They are always telling us about their other girls. What should we do T Our folks like them very much and we do, too, but we are troubled to know what we should do. Should we stop going with them, or should we forget their faults nd go with them just the same ? , We girls have agreed to go by your advice so please tell us what to do. Dear Hiss Brooks: The peculiar thin? about human be-ings is that they like to confide all their joys and woes, or confess all their sins to sympathetic listeners. So although I just can't classify my par- -' ticular kind of ailment, I would like the Opinion of others who have had similar experiences. I am not at all melancholy or sad, nor do I object to scoldings. The case is this: I am twenty-fou- r years old, not exactly stupid and fairly good looking. These are my resources. The liabilities' are more numerous. All my t life (with the exception of the terms spent at high school and business col-lege, I have lived on an isolated cat-tle ranch, and because all my inter- - esta are here, 1 shall continue to live here. I have met very few peo-ple and as for the men I generally meet, they "sort of" don't seem to like me nor I them. I have been brought up to be reserved, and all by myself I have developed a case of bashful-nes- st which isn't exactly painful, but it's there I The girls of my acquaint-ance who are really quite "wild and reckless" seem to have all the good times. I appear very much indiffer-ent outwardly, but ohl dear Miss Brooks, you know it hurts, and I'm very lonesome. Oh yes, I do belong to all the social activities that one finds in a country like this. I participate in outdoor sports, I try to be a good pal to my brothers and I try to be congenial, but I must not know how. Yes, 1 ' am jolly and full of fun. Now why do you think I'm not popular and why is it that men claim to like girls who resent familiari-ties, yet they all seem to prefer the other kind? Are there any men that do not? Of course the fault must be mine is mine, but I don't know just where, so can anyone help me just a little? Thank you for your patience, Miss Brooks, and believe me I shall cer-tainly appreciate your comer if it helps' me as much as I am hoping it will. UTAHNA, Utah. As a rule being jolly and full of fun spells popularity. Perhaps you are that only when you are with your girl friends. Being naturally of the retiring type, your environ-ment has intensified this disposition. You can overcome this by making up your tnind that from now on you will make an effort to really entertain some one each time you are out in other people's society. .Forget self in your effort to do this and think only of their pleasure or comfort. You will find it will be easier each time you make the effort. I believe the average man does like the girl best who is jolly and enter-taining. Naturally he does not care for the society of one who is so re-served that it is an effort to entertain her, but most emphatically there are men who do care for the girl who does not so far forget her dignity and self-respe- ct as to allow every man in whose company she happens to be to take liberties that cheapen her in his and her own estimation. ...It may be, too, that your friends mistake your reserve and bashfulness , . tor pride. I Your letter is nicely written and shows both refinement and educa- - I tion. Perhaps the men you meet in j your rather isolated location have not I enough education themselves to appre ciate it in a girl. I wish you could get away for a time where you might meet men more like yourself, who would recognize the qualities you pos-sess. .Would this not be possible? I do not mention this to make you dis-contented with your surroundings, but often a girl is more appreciated away from her childhood acquaintanc-es, and I feel that you deserve and I should have the society of people of refinement, which is sometimes hard to get when living in a place so re-- mote. I hope this little talk will in j some degree help you, for you must i Virrn how to overcome your reserve to some extent if you wish to make ; flrittls and e?jy life. Write me gam if I can help you further. Miss Helen Brooks: I have often wondered why a dog howls when a musical instrument is playod. Could you please tell me the reason? Thanking you in advance, I am, CURIOUS,' Wilder, Idaho. An intelligent dog is a wonderfully sympathetic, loving, and at times, melancholy animal, end music affects him much in the same way that it does most people. You yourself are no doubt saddened by some kinds of music, as well as made joyous by oth-ers. A dog uses the only method he has of expressing bis feelings, and howls when he hears music. If you will read some of the wonderful dog stories, most of them true, by Alfred Fayson Terhune, I. think you will un-- i dcrstand this. 5 Dear Miss Brooks: As per your request, I herewith en-close th words of the song "Sweet Adeline." T. B.. Mackay, Ma. . It was very kind of you to teke the trouble to send this song, "T. B." 1 am sure "An Inquirer" will appre-c'nt- e it. ad I thar.k you for her. An Inquirer, Moroni. Utah: Below ymi will find the word of the song "Sweet Adeline," for which you SWEET ADELINE In the evening when I sit alone The sun again, love, for me would shine. Dear Madam: I am a young man of 21 and my fiance is 22. Should the difference in age make a difference to us getting married? Also, please tell me how long a young man should stay when calling on his girl, and how many nights a week? I suppose you will welcome inquir-ies from men as well as ladies, and I hope I will be welcome. Your friend in anxiety, A. D., St. George. Yes, indeed, "A. D.,M the men are as welcome to this column as the flowers in May the more so, I sup-pose, because they are somewhat scarce.' I cannot see how so slight a difference as one year, on either side, could possibly affect your married life. If you did not know there was such a difference, you certainly would never think anything about it, so I should just simply forget it and go and be happy. My own personal opin'on is that a marriage between a man and a girl where the girl is three or four, or even five years older than the man, is not nearly so absurd and foolish as the many marriages that take place where the man is twenty or twenty-fiv- e years the girl's senior. The old theory that a girl ages faster than the man, and therefore should marry a man old enough to be her father, is about exploded these days when women no longer settle down and consider themselves middle aged at thirty. Do you agree with me? Look around you and see for yourself. I should think eleven o'clock was quite late enough to stay when you call on your fiancee. As Mutt and Jeff say, you might "use discretion" both on that and on how many nights a week you call. If she is a working girl, I should say three nights a week was a very liberal allowance. Come again, "A. D." We are glad to have you as a member of our circle. Dear Miss Brooks: We are two girls wondering over some questions, so we decided to come to you for help, (a) If you were walking down the street and someone said "Hello," and your name, is it pro-per for you to say "Hello" and their name, or just "Hello?" (h) Which is the best piano, the or and which is the best of all pianos? (c) Can you give us the address of Viola Dana and Ruth Roland? (d) Is it proper for a boy about 13 years old to take a girl the same age home from a party? PEGGY AND WINNIE, Utah. (a) It is correct for you to say "Hello, Mrs. Smith," in answer to her greeting. Of course this is very informal and would only be used be-tween people who are weH acquainted with one another, (b) In regard to the pianos, my dears, I hardly feel qualified to advise you. There are many splendid pianos on the market, you know, and my personal prefer-ence, if I had one, would not amount to much. The better way will be for you to call on your local dealer, or dealers, and ask theiT advice. The two you mention are both good so far as I know, but if you are contemplat-ing buying one, better see your deal-er and he can give you much more information than I can. (c) The ad-dress of Viola Dana is 7070 Franklin Ave., Los Angeles, and that of Ruth Roland is care of Hal Roch Studios, Los Angeles, (d) A way is gen-rtl- iy provided for getting young children home from a party so that it would hardly be necessary for a boy to act as escort. However, should he be go-ing in the same direction, or if for any reason the girl is returning home alone, it would not be out of place for him to go with her, or for a group of children to go together. Dear Miss Brooks: This is my first entry into your cozy corner, but you have helped so many others that I decided to ask you a question. Will you please puliKsh Hie words to the sonj: entitled "Memories?" Thanking you very kindly, SHORTY, Tooele, Utah Thanking you in advance and wish-ing you success in your helpful work, we remain, your two friends, TILLIE AND VIRGIE, Mackay, Ida. It looks to me as though your boy friends were cither simply joking with you when they say they do not like ou, or else they do not know their own minds and ere playing fast and loose with you. Since your own peo-ple like these boys and do not object to your going with them, it is a little bit hard for me to advise you, but my judgment is that boys who so far for-get themselves as. to drink whiskey when in the company of their girl friends, especially in these days when prohibition is supposed to be in order, must be a little off color, and 1 should hesitate about spending much of my time with them. No, do not forget their faults at least' not such glaring faults as drinking in your presence, but 'let them see that such actions do not appeal to you, and that if they do not care to discontinue them, you will not go with them. I am sorry my reply will be too late to reach you in time to be of any use to you in answer to your query about going to another town with these boys for a 21th of July celebra-tion, but you can judge from the above what my advice would be. Dear Miss Brooks: I am very interested in your corner and always turn there first. In read-ing your last answers I find "An In-quirer" wants the words of the song "Sweet Adeline" published, so I , am sending you the words of this song. I have a question to ask you: WiH you please tell me the name ef Ida-ho's state flower and something of Us history. Thanking you m advance, I am, LILY, Richfield, Idaho. Thank you, Lily, for sendine; in the song. Idaho's state flower Is the Goldea Rod, which is a wetl-kaow- n fall-bloomi- ng plant With wandlike stems, variously shaped leaves, and heads of small, yellow-raye- d flowers, ftea clustered in paricles. The Golden Rod is very prolific and grows wild in Ida-ho and Western and Middle Westers states. Only one species is to be found in Europe. It is also the Iowa state flower. Dear Miss Brooks: (1) What do you think is the pro-per wages for girls 14 or 15 years old for doing house work, tending chil-dren, and helping with laundry and cooking? Do you think it is proper for any-one stopping at a house to inquire for instance, for the location of a certain place, to go to the back door or the front door ? I thank you, BLUE EYES of Wendell. (1) There seems to be no fixed price for general house work, the price paid depending upon how capable the help is. For a girl 14 or 15 the pop-ular price seems to be from $4 to $6 per week. Care of children alone is usually paid for by the hour 10 to 23 cents per hour is the usual price. (2) It would be proper to go to whichever door was most convenient, I should think, to inquire the location of any certain place. Dear Miss Brooks: We are greatly interested in your little oorner, and would appreciate very much an answer to this question. There are three girls with whom we have associated for years, and now these girls have takn the habit of running away secretly, even if we were at one of the girl's homes. What should we do? Thanking you in ad-vance, we are, A. B. AND D., Spanish Fork. The girl prohably intend their be-havior to b tlken as a joke, but it is ertainly v ry rude. If you show a little indifference and do not fill on them quite so oft-- n t.'iey will pro!) i!ly eali. they ar not d Ang sih they like to be don" by. If tliey Mill continue to he no impol'te thr oily j thirg to do is to leave them cnliiely j iloae. Don't you think so' When Baby Complains ) THERE ARE MANY WAYS a baby has of expressing any pain or irregularity or digression from its normal condition of health and happiness. A short sharp cry, a prolonged irritated cry. Restlessness, a constant turning of the head or or the whole bomr, fretful. In these and other ways a baby tells you there h , something wrong. Most mothers know that a disordered stomach, or bowels that do not act naturally are the cause of most of baby's sufferings. A call for the doctor is the first thought, but in the event of any delay there should be ready at hand a safe remedy such as Fletcher's Castoria. Castona has been used for baby's ailments for over 30 years and has mer-ited the good will of the family physician in a measure not equaled by any other " baby's medicine because of its harmlessness and the good results achieved. , And remember this: Castoria is essentially a baby's remedy and not a cure-a-ll for every member of the family. What might help you is too often dangerous when given to a babe. sg Children Cry For "met Content 15 Thud Practorl K jf $ 7&&&&4j Let's Think It Over. . 1 31 tf "k Thereby Promoting DHJcsfa1 There is such a thing as saying too much on any subject, tad - 34 1 Cheerfulness uidjC Vand-tena"- . talker sooner or later becomes a bore.
