THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 16, 1912.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I have been
married almost four years and lor
my husband very much and he does
ma, I know. W hare no children.
There la only one fault I find with
him, and that la when he goea out he
never gets home the time he promise
ma. Otherwise, we are very, Tery
(1) What can I do to mend this lit
tl fault of his?
(2) What Is the fourth wedding an
(3) What wttl remove whit spots
from a dining table?
(4) What will take candle spots
from a Brussels rugT
(5) Please give me a good recipe
for a light fruit cake.
I am glad to hear of one wife who Is
so happy. I hope It will continue all
your life, my dear.
Borne men have the fault of not be
ing prompt. If yon can't cure him
comfortably, without scolding, overlook
It. That's better than making trou
ble, iFn't it? Perhaps he can't alwayB
finish up his business at the time he
expected. But if he wastes time, sup
pose you try not being on hand your
self when he comes around. Just tell
him you thought he had changed his
mind about coming, when he didn't ap
pear on time, so of course you could
not be ready for him. That might
make htm remember better uexr time.
(2) There Is no especial celebration
for the fourth anniversary. (3) Get
some "rotten ear'.h" from a hor.se
painter. Moisten it with good sewing
machine oil aad rub well Into the spot.
(4) You can pour alcohol on i( and
remove It, when softened, with a cloth.
Or you can put blotting paper over
the spot, and press It with a warm
(not hot) iron until the paper absorbs
all the grease.
(5) Fruit Cake: One pound powder
ed sugar, one pound flour, two-thirds
cup butter, six eggs, one-half pound
raisins seeded, chopoed and dredged;
one-half pounds currant washed, pick

Dear Mr a Thompson: I was mar
ried when I was not quite 15. My hus
band Is 15 years older than I am. He
is a drinking man and won't give me
any money. We live on a farm. I get
a few eggs and a little butter, and he
expects me to run the house, clothe
myself and the child (who is 6 years
old) and also buy his clothes out of
that. If I cant do it, and ask him for
a little money, he abuses me and the
child. I work out when I can and I
have bought our house furniture.
If I leave him and get a divorce, can
I compel him to give me the furni
ture or would I have to give him half?
Would I be doing wrong to get a di
vorce after I have tried for seven
years to get along and he gets worse
all the time? He goes away for three
and four days on a drunk and I don't
know where he is and when he comes
home his money is all gone.
I hope all the young girls who think
they are In love, will read this letter.
It shows plainly the kind of a mar
riage a girl Is apt to make when she
is too young to know the difference be
tween the kind of man who will make
a good husband and the kind who will
make a bad husband.
This wife seems to have sufficient
cause for divorce. If she can support
herself and child, she will be better
off without such a husband. Undoubt
edly a court would award her alimony.
though how much I could not say It
would not be sufficient to support a
woman and child, at any rate, and
there might be difficulty in collecting
it. The judge would also decide any
division of property. Some jndgee
are very kind to a woman in such a
case, but one cannot always depend
upon finding a kind Judge.

Inability to close the draw on the

due to a' break in the mechanism of
the turn table. The train, coming
from St. Louis, began its Journey

sage of a steamer in the river below,
When an attempt was made to swing

wrong with the mechanism, and while
bridge tenders attempted to find the
break, trainmen and passengers fretted
and fumed. The train arrived at the
local station shortly after 9 o'clock.
