(T* Dorothy Dix Dear Miss Dix: Having read, a? i I so often dn, of m o t h e r - i n - l a w ! trouble, !' wonder if Iho p!nn I , hiive followed would help anyone. ' I live, and have for tho past five ; years, wilh my mnrricd daughter. ! However, althouph I live in her . house, I do not live w i t h h e r ; I j have my own housekeeping room, \ with my nwn f u r n i t u r e and every- ; thins I need to make me comfortable. My daughter eooks my evening meal along with her?, and either sends or brings it up to me · and I eat it in my room--a room j in which I am the mistress, and that last statement alone covers a lot of ground. j Hnw my daughter keeps her J part of the house is her business, i and hers alone. I don't have to ; live in it. I ran t r u t h f u l l y say if ! you .searched from one end of the i country to another, you wouldn't i find two people more unlike than my daughter and I. I happen to be the careful, tidy type. She is hap- py-gfj-lucky, willing to let go until tomorrow what she doesn't want to do today. Sn you see. living completely together would be miserable for both of us. I have a small electric stove on which I make my breakfast, which my daughter frequently comes up to shaio. Tiiun we chat for a while. On Sundays and holidays her husband come.-! up with her. or 1 t a k e the coffee into their rooms, and we have it together. Frequently my daughter and I lunch together in my room. She cloos most of my shopping for me, along with her own. and I do some myself. T pay her a certain Kiim each month to cover food expenses, and she absolutely refu5f?s to take anything for the room, in which her husband upholds her.
