These are the suicides of romance almost invariably. But Professor Bailey of Yale in his recent statis cal study of suicide in the United States shows that they are far from being the majority of actual sui cides.

You needn't do a thing. When she is young and inno cent, with a frank, opeu work countenance and with no ex penence, get up early every morning and watch ber door step. There are others on the same trail, and if vou wish to be an active member of the club you must do your share of the work. If she accepts flowers and fruit readily, don't get too gay. This is only your privi lege. And when you feel that you cannot stand it any longer, tell her so, and leave the rest to her. She will...
