THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1912.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) We are
two girls. 16 and 18, both in love
with th same man. He shows affec
tion for both and when with each one
of us tells that one he loves her bet
ter than the other. What shall we do?
2 Is it right to go walking with (2)j am vry tnln Wnat

(3) Is there any harm In going to!eem t0 Btay the way
public danre6? Ml How can one of I time
ai:d the other reduce them
BONNIE AND OAT.
(1) The man is having lota of fun
with you. After this see him only
when you two girls are together and
have the augh on him. (2) No (3)
I do not approve of public dances,
but if you must gn, take your mother
or some elderly woman relative to
be your chaperone. (4) The fat one
can diet, which will make her whole
body thinner. The thin on should
take tiptoe exercise try walking
around on tiptoe whenever you can;
this developes the calves. Both
should walk a good deal and exercise
outdoors. This will take off super
fluous flesh and add muscle, which
Is probably needed by both of you.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) I am a
girl of 18 and though I try very hard
I cannot get any friends to go
around with me. 1 am very lonesome,
always in the house and never go to
any place of amusement or meet any
friends. I have one girl friend, but
she is away. I dress well and people
tell me I am nice looking. I have
not any boy friends, though I wish
I had. Don't you feel sorry for me?
P'.ease tell me how I could gain some
friends and how I could meet some
(3) How do you pronounce glace,
frappe, detutante, decolette.
(1) There are lots of girls Just like
you, my dear. Our American society
doesn't seem to know how to bring
the young folks together. Some girls
have all the attention and others who
are just as nice and sometimes even
sweet at, are left home. All I can say
to you is: Be pleasant. Be able to
ta'.k about interesting things which
means reading and observing. Do
not be too anxious to have friends
but be willing to go halfway. Join a
club if you can, go to church and be
Interested in the young people's so
duties, and If you meet any nice boys
don't make the mistake of urging
them to pay attentions to you. If a
man like you hell find a way of show
ing it but don't expect it to be al
ways theaters and dances and such.
The best man don't always take the
best girls around as much as some
people would have you believe.

ful of olive oil once a day, and take

It is thought by many experts In
postal matters that the creation of a
1-cent letter rate by congress at its
coming session - would mean so much
additional business that the extra
revenue would easily care for the ex
penses of the department under the
One of the strongest believers in
the 1-cent letter propaganda is John
Wanamaker, former postmaster gen
eral. "I am a firm believer in 1-cent
letter postage," declares Mr. 'Wana-
maker, "and think the government
would have a larger revenue from it
after the first two years than it has

John Wanamaker is probably one of
the best versed men in America on
postal problems. He was United States
postmaster general beginning the year !
1889 under President Benjamin Harri-
son and made a deep study of the situ- j
ation. This statement coming from a'
man of such mature Judgment is j
hailed with considerable satisfaction;
by the promoters of the campaign for(
1-cent letter postage.
That a definite demand for 1-cent i
letter postage will be made at the com
ing session of congress is now -evident
Thousands of business men
throughout the country are joining
the National One-Cent Letter Postage)
association which has its headquar
ters at Cleveland. Ohio, and which is
conducting a campaign for 1-cent let
ter rate. A new bill providing for 1
cent postage win be introduce In con
gress early in the session and a de
termined effort is to be made to se
cure its passage. Hundreds of com
mercial organizations and other bodies
have indorsed the campaign and are
working with the postage association
in the effort to secure a lower rate.
Under present conditions It Is
claimed that first class mail is paying
a surplus to the government of nearly i
$70,000,000 a year. Although it re-j
quires two cents to mall a letter any
where in the United States, it is esti
mated that it actually costs the gov
ernment about one cent to carry it.
At the present time the department re
ceives on letter mall an .average rev
enue of 84 cents per pound, equal to
$1,680 per ton. Although this first
class mail supplies less than one
eighth of the total tonnage of tie
mails, yet it pays 75 per cent of the
total revenue. This is the chief reason
why the advocates of 1-cent postage
assert the present rate should be cut
in two. J
It is claimed by the advocates for
1-cent postage, that business men ;
would have their postage accounts cut
exactly In half were the new rate in-:
augurated. At the present time an
enormous deficit is caused in second-1
class mall the periodical literature i
through the carriage to extreme points
throughout the country, of heavy mag
azine mail. Periodicals are carried
throughout the breadth of the land for
one cent per pound, or $20 a ton as
compared to $1,680 per ton, which
business men pay on their letters.
Before the United States supreme
court, about December 1, Solicitor
General Bullitt upheld the . right of !
the government to stipulate the condi-1
tions under which mail shall be car-
"It is a fact," declared Solicitor!
General Bullitt, "that every man, wo
man and chi'-d who mails a letter is
being unjustly taxed. The govern
ment overcharges people who mail let
ters about $70,000,000 per year."
Many other government officials
claim that there should be a radical
change made in the present rates
charged on various classes of mall
matter. The large proportion of second-class
mail matter carried through
out the country is said to be weekly
and monthly magazine matter full of
advertising pages, on which publish
ers are making vast profits.
The National One-Cent Letter Post
age association Is distributing mil
lions of stamps throughout the United
States for use on correspondence of
business houses, urging the lower
rate.. Active Bteps will be taken this
winter to press through congress a
bill providing for 1-cent postage. The
association's offices are located in the
New England building, Cleveland,
Ohio, George T. Mcintosh being secre
tary and treasurer.
