I HAVE two letters here I wish to quote for the benefit
of all the girls, but particularly for the sake of the
schoolgirls. And of the schoolgirls, I th. .Ik they will
probably appeal a good deal to nay "littlest, young
est" girls. At all events, I hope bo.
These letters came to me a couple of months ago. For
obvious reasons, I give neither the names of the girls, nor
of the town where they live, nor of the subjects they
mention in their requests. But botli girls are In the
graduating class of grammar school.
Here is the first letter:
My Dear Mrs. Herrlck:
I attend the grammar school, and each one In our
class must write an essay to be read In public soon.
Mine Is on "Everyday Courage," and I am at my wits'
end trying to write it. What I wanted to ask you is:
Will you kindly make out an outline or skeleton of an
es«ay for me?
The others all have subjects that can be read about,
and as I have always excelled them in composition, I
am anxious to do so in this case. I think you can tell
how I feel about it; and if you will only help me out, I
cannot thank you enough.
This is the second:
My Dear Mrs. Herrlck:
I would be very much obliged to you if you could
epare a few moments to write me a composition on
"Friends." I am to graduate from my school next
June. I am to have the salutatory, and 1 have to
bring in "Friends." If you will please help me, I will
thank you very much. Another girl in our class said
she wrote to you the other day, and I thought I would
do the same.
LETTERS FROM "EACH AND ALL"
GIRLS AND HELPFUL HINTS BY
THEKE are a few remarks I wish to make to the
girls in connection with their letters. 1 have said
the same things before, but there seems to be a
good deal of misunderstanding about them, and so
1 am repeating them once more.
In the first place, with regard to addressing me. I
receive a number of letters in which the girls say they
have not known where to direct the letters. ADDRESS
LETTERS TO ME IN CARE OF THE PAPER xsi
WHICH YOU HAVE SEEN THE GIRLS PAGE. A let
ter directed like this will ulways be forwarded to me, no
matter where I may be.
Second, IF YOU WISH A PERSONAL REPLY, IN
CLOSE STAMPED AND SELF-ADDRESSED EN
VELOPE. I have written those words so often, that I
believe I could write them in my Bleep. Yet it seems
necessary to repeat them. I get numbers of letters ask
ing advice or for addresses or for membership cards, and
either not inclosing a stamp or else omitting the address.
Try to bear this injunction In mind.
Third, DON'T EXPECT AN IMMEDIATE ANSWER
THROUGH THE PAPER. The letters are always hurried
to press as soon as possible, but the paper appears but
once a week, and when one week's batch is turned in, the
next batch must wait a week longer. Then it takes time
to make a newspaper, and you can not, on our page, get
a letter one day and print it the next. Furthermore, the
letters must take their turn. First come, first t=rved, is
the rule. If you wish a prompt answer, inclose a stamped
and self-addressed envelope, and you shall have It.
Fourth. WHEN YOU WISH YOUR LETTER PRINT
ED. WRITE ON ONE SIDE OF THE PAPER. It will
save me a great deal of trouble and extra work If you
Will recollect this simple rule. And don't write in pencil.
If you will read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the
above directions, it will be to my comfort and to your own

If you wish to have music take a prominent place in
the club, why do you not try organizing a musical sub-
Club, by correspondence, if in no other way? I do not
doubt that there are many other lovers of music who
would be delighted to write to you and to hear from you.
D«ar Mrs. Herrlck:
I am 26 years old and am head bookkeeper and stenogra
pher for a largi concern. A short while ago I had nervous
prostration, and now. having recovered enough to return to
my work, I find I am very forgetful, forgetting words which
are commonly used, and sometimes not being able to recall
them to mind for hours.

Those letters gave me some very serious thoughts. It
seemed to me almost Impossible that there could be two
girls in one school who had so little sense of honor as to
apply to a practiced writer to prepare compositions that
they could turn In as their own, and thus win pre-emi
nence over their fellows.
After I had mused on the matter for a while, I sat
down and wrote to each girl. I pointed out to her kindly,
but very decidedly, the cheating to which she had asked
me to be a party, and gave some suggestions by which
she could obtain hints that would help her to prepare
her papers. I have never heard from either of them, and
I daresay they think me a very unkind as well as un
Just here is where I would like to ask my schoolgirls
a question. Is this sort of thing common among girls?
Please write and tell me. you students from whom I had
■bo many letters during the prize contest and since. I am
really desirous to know.
Of course, I understand that a peculiar code of honor
prevails in certain things among school and college boy«,
end I suppose among school and college girls as well. In
my young days it was thought dishonest to use a "crib"
or a "pony" or a "trot" or whatever you please to caJl It.
Now I am told that the use of such books Is accepted
and even condoned by professors, and that It Is impassible
for a boy to get through college without the aid of one.
Sc much the worse for the boy and for the college,it seems
to my old-fashioned ideas. But, after all, if It be true
that the use of a k<-y or a translation is recognized by the
teacher and that, as 1 am told, he makes allowance for It
In giving out the lessons the boys are to study, then 1
can only Bay that the boy cheats no one so much as him
self—unless it may be the weak-minded parent who sends
him to college, under the mistaken Impression that he will
work out his own translations instead of "lifting" them
from a "trot."
memoranda, but exercise your memory in the ways I have
mentioned and in many others. And do not be too easily
discouraged by your lapses of memory- Your illness will
account for a great deal, and the memory will doubtless
regain poise when you are in better health. Be patient
for her. She may not be well, or she may have bother*
or annoyances of which you know nothing. Be patient
with her and avoid provoking her.
My Dear Mis. Herrick: . , ,
1 have a great notion for gymnasium or acrobatic science.
Do you think that that would be a way of earning a living.
at I have a great >dea for the stage and iv work? I am
*olnf? to take lessons In It.
I thougnt I would ask your advice before I went any
I am afraid I do not know enough about the work
you contemplate to advise very intelligently. Frankly, the
Idea rather repels me. 1 should think the surroundings in
Buch work would be most uncongenial. Can any of my
girls give suggestions or opinions on the subject?
Study to Stand Well
1 have been in the habit for some time of holding either
my left or right shoulder higher than the other when walking.
Also my walk Is very awkward. Would you kindly answer
Eromptly how to cure It, as I am anxious to have It remedied?

A CONSTANT READER.
If you have been carrying one shoulder higher than
the other for some time, as you say, you can hardly hope
to have the trouble remedied in a little while. You must
study to carry your shoulders right all the while, and in
time the trouble will be remedied. For awkward walking
study Delsarte, or go to dancing school, or take lessons in
walking from some one who understands it. Yes, I think
deep breathing an admirable thing.

THE ST. PAUL GLOBE. SUNDAY. APRIL 30. 1905
But that la rather different from the case in point. In
that we have the picture of a girl deliberately trying to
get the better of her schoolmates by Inducing some one
else to do her work. And I ask again: Is this an every
day thing among schoolgirls?
It is frequently said that women have no sense of
honor—that Is, of honor as men understand It. We have
quoted to un the story of the elderly Frenchman who
wished that the sons of the noblewoman who was his
hostess might be pure and her daughters brave.
"Do you not mean It the other way?" asked the
"No, ir.adame; nature will take care of that." was the
Alto, wo are told that women have so long been the
weaker and more helpless sex. that they have, like all the
down-trodden and oppressed, turned to deceit as their
only refuge. Yet that seems a poor excuse to make for
our clear-eyed, fearless American girl. She surely is
brave, as well as pure. Yet has she a sense of honor?
What do you think, girls?
SOME INSTANCES OF THE LACK OF HONOR
There may be some girls who listen at the door. 1
don't happen to know them. Do you? There may be
some who read letters that are not Intended for their eyes.
Do any of you know such? I will tell you of one thing
I knew a woman to do. A man had written a note In her
library, and she was very anxious to know for whom it
was meant. When he had gone, she took the blotter he
had used to the mirror, held it up and read the name of
the person to whom he had addressed the envelope. She
told of it as a great Joke. It never seemed to occur to
her that it was dishonorable.
Another woman whom I knew had a piece of property
she wished to sell. She told a relative that she—the reli
tlve—could have it for $3000 any time she wantci it. a
The beat teacher cannot help a green pupil at once to the
right way. anj a movement which is easy, graceful and
healthful In good term, becomes awkward, strained and harm
ful done wrongly. I belonged to a class in a large lnstltu
tloi.. lea by an authority in physical culture, and. in an effort
to io my best and make the most of my opportunity. I over
did and great haim resulted, making me an Invalid for four
years, because I had. to start with, a alight physical weak
ness, which I had not realised.
One other thing: One coirespondent In to-day's paper
speaks of a course of nursing, studied at home, and "thouxht
well of by prominent physicians." Prominent, perhaps, but
never of the clasa ycu or I would put our trust In, Mrs. Her
rlck. Surely to that course should be added a training In a
hospital; for why should nursing be different from any other
profession, and what profession is there where practice aa
wf'll as theory Is not necessary? Could Mrs. Harland find a
good cook among women who had read her cook books from
end to end and knew them by heart, but had never really tried
a recipe? Nothing good comes by theory only, from religion
aown; and. oh! the harm that can be done by so-called nurse*,
■who have only book knowledge and no experience to meet the
emergencies ever recurring, but which had not been provided
for In books. Help the general public to realise what a
nurso should be through your slrla. for there Is vast unorance
on the subject a WELL WISHER.
I hope both the gymnasium enthusiasts and the would
be nurses will read this letter and ponder upon it

few ddys later a man offered $3500 for the property. She
promptly told him he could have It, without an/ regard
to the fact that she had promised it to some one else at
a lower num.
Another woman sold out a business, with the especial
proviso that she would not open any other estabiishn-.-it
of the same port within six blocks of the business she
sold. ?n less than two months she had started another
Ilk* it half a block away on the opposite side of the
■trwt. Tnero was no contract besides a verbal arrange
ment to hold her.
A woman bought a steel belt bag for herself at a big
department store Just before Christmas. On Christ-iaa
Day some one gave her a bag^ like the one she had. She
turned the one she had purchased inside out. took a pair
of old scissors and clipped the links near the bottom in
half a dozen places, and carried the bag back to the shop
where she bought it. There she showed the damaged con
dition of the inside of the bag, and said she had just dis
covered it. The management promptly gave her credit
for the bag, and she bought something else with the
money. Thin story Is absolutely true.
'.Vhen we hear of things of this sort, we feel that we
ought not to ask if women have a sense of honor, but
rather inquire If they possess common honesty.
I could give you half a dozen more illustrations of the
same kind. The women who were guilty of them—one
woman whom I myself knew bought a bottle of perfume,
took out part of it, filled the bottle up with water and
returned It to the shop—are not women of low and de
graded life or position. They are the kind we all know and
meet. Remembering that, do you wonder that I thought
It a serious thing for tho girls to ask me to "•fake" (excuse
the slang!) their compositions for them?
M> denr girls, the foundations of honor and honesty,
after ail, are in the Golden Rule. You would not like to
be I.ed tc yourself. You would not like to be cheated
yourself. You would not wish to have your schoolmate

I have printed. The list of
members is growing with
every day. Let us have

order as 30011 as possible.
Dear l:rs. Heirlck.
I think tbe society should aim to help the young peopU
In their many puzzling and trying difficulties; Belf-culture,
needlework, cooking and millinery. I have traveled a great
deal and can help the girls In many ways. A MOTHER.
Dear Mrs. Hcrrlck:
I would like to suggest one plan.
I should like to see the girls meet, for the first time. In
some beautiful church some Sunday afternoon.
Probably a large number of girls are busy, and Sunday
la their only leisure day. The second meeting could be an
evening one, somewhere else, where they could all have a
Jolly time and meet one another In a happy, friendly way.
Their meeting the first time In a church would consecrate
their club to good work and dignity. They cannot, it seems
to me. start on too high a plane.
A MOTHER OF ONE OF THE GIRU3.
Dear Mrs. Hcrrlck:
I think to help one another would be fine. If you could
Impress it on the minds of the girls who are financially above
other girls not to snub them. It would be grand.
Try and get the girls of one mind, one aim, and that Is
to help any one in trouble; they will not have to go far, for
they are found everywhere. Maybe they can be a comfort
Show them how to open their eyes to see and look out

Dear Mrs. Herrick:
I think work should be done for Invalids. Reading mat
ter and other little remembrances may be sent. I think, too,
a email admittance fee should be asked, to be used in can
or sickness or trouble amont; members and to add to the
fund. Would it not be a good Idea for each one on her birth
day to send in a penny for each year ahe haa lived? In that
way the fund would Increase and no one feel the drain upon
her. As I have always been an Invalid more or less, I
find any little act of kindness, words of cheer and advice
by letters and many other such things worth a great deal.
Dear Mrs. Herrlck:
- I think It would be nice
for the girls to be divided
Into different classes, ac
cording to the subject they
choose, to Improve them
selves In. That la, have one
class for the study of liter
ature; one for study of his
tory; one for study of art,
and so on. giving each one a
chance to take up the sub
ject she would enjoy most.
I also think It would be
nice to meet at each other's
houses; that is, those liv
ing near enough together to
enable them to do so. and
those taking up the sam*
line of study.
We could have little
sketches once In a while,
and charge a small fee of
admittance to our friends;
and that would enable us ~>
help those who wish to take up some study outside of am
different classes who would otherwise b« unable, tc do s/>
I wish you would send a stamped and self-addressed
envelope for your membership card. You are the kind of
tfrl we want In "Each and AIL"
Mr D'-ar Mrs. Uerrlck:
You might compose a staff of several members from each
faction, for It Is not fair that you should have all the work
as well as responsibility.
This staff could keen "tabs" on each faction, which would
continue to meet In our homes, perhaps, and at the general
meetings. At regular intervals each faction could have on*
night to entertain the othera in Its particular way.
In this way we could each pursue our own Interests (and
from letters already published there seems to be a diversity
of Interest), and yet be banded together.
Or, every once In so often, those who wished could change
factions, giving us a better chance to become acquainted.
This would be a be-on for the shy girl.
Those outside of this city could do the same thing, or
