Do you know, Mr. Patriot, that the
bigots of the warring nations have
ceased to make charges against the
nuns because the nuns are doing
such good work on the battlefield,
tending to the sick regardless ortheir
belief, and doing work that is un
equaled by any Red Cross society.
Yours for a square deal from the
so-called Patriots. N. W. H.
INFORMATION WANTED Who
oppose the adoption of the single tax,
and why? There does not seem to
be any difficulty in proving its im
mense superiority to our present tax
laws, and dissatisfaction with the
present inchoate tax laws seems uni
versal. Why, then, does not society
substitute the single tax for the con
glomerate tax? Veritas.
BEAUTY SPECIALISTS. Anoth
er article regarding the biggest fake
is the beauty specialist. Many of our
wealthy men and women invest large
sums of money to have their wrin
'kles and crow's feet removed and
even venture as far as believing they
can have their features changed.
They are foolish enough to think they
can have a wide nose changed to a
Grecian type, a large mouth made
small, thick lips made thin, a long
chin made round. They will tolerate
indescribable suffering undergoing
operations having a little bone or
flesh removed here and there. The
fool patient may be informed that it
requires a year's treatment' to obtain
good results. This gives the doctor
time to fleece $2,000 from a wealthy
woman. Of course, a poorer patient
can get the same treatment for $200
in I9SS time.
Then you are in hopes of regaining
25 years. That is, the specialists
guarantee if you are 50. Money will
not regain lost beauty due to old age,
for nature must take its course in
spite of all fake specialists. The
changing of facial features is impos
sible. As God has created thee, so"
shalt thou stay. My advice to rich
and poor is, beware of the fake
beauty specialists; live within the
laws of hygiene. Do not overindulge
in eating or drinking, abolish the use
of alcoholic liquors, avoid all chemi
cal face creams and your beauty will
be preserved by nature's process,
which is the most reliable and inex
pensive. Marjorie Louise Cuthbertj

BOOST PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
What is the use of pur patriotic
friends arguing about convent hair.
That stuff is only taking up space-. M
don't want to butt in to change the
subject, but let all of us patriots dis
pose of our time in boosting our pub
lic schools and demanding higher
education, as that is the only weapon
for all arguments. A Real Patriot.
