I do not go out during the week and therefore want to stay out late the two nights mentioned. Do you think It proper for mo to go to a girl's party when I have only aeen her once? ANXIOUS. If there were any good reason why you should stay out late any night, I do not think your parents would object; but they are justified in refusing to allow you to remain out until any hour of the night Just because your boy friends do so. Tou think them cruel for making such a rule, but wait until you have become a few years older and you will see that they did it for your own good. If you have been introduced to the girl, it would be proper to attend her party. Calling Cards DMf 'Mrs. Adams. There are Ave sisters of us. Will you please tell me how our calling cards should read?
