THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. SATURDAY. MAY 24, 19IS.
Dear Mrs. Thompson I am mar
ried two years. I love my husband
and we were happy until a short t'me
ago, when we moved next door to his
folks. Now he is never home, but al
ways over there only comes home
for his meals. What can I do?
(1) Is It right to play for money
with a low get of fellows? He says
be sees no harm in it.
(2) I keep my home neat, but when
he comes home he swears at me and
wen t take the baby any more. When
I cry he says I make him sick and'
when I am pleasant he goes over Just
the same and thinks he is doing right.
He spends his money so when pay day
comes he has none ieft.
. (3) How may I get him to stop
spending so much money? He said
as long as he don't go jvi'.h other
women it is all right. The money is
his because he earns it and can do
what be wants to with it.
(4) At first we saved to get start
ed. I made all my clothes over so
they would last; now I have none to
put on any more. How can I maks
him buy me clothes? When I tell him
be laughs at me and says, "I haven't

Move away from that locality, if
(1) The harm is this that he will
sink as low as the o'her fe'.lows if he
associates with them. From what
you write I judge that he has already
begun' to sink, for when a man loses
rerpect for his wife and the mother
Of his baby, he is getting pretty low.
(2) Don't give him the satisfaction
of crying. It would be better to treat
him pretty cool, as if he were a sort of
(3) If you will take the matter to
court your husband will find that It is
NOT all right. When a man marries
he takes the obligation of supporting
his wife and family and all of the
money he rams is no longer bis. It
belongs to the family. You have as
much right tc it as he has and any

Sometimes we want a change from
strawberries and cream and even the
delicious shortcake does not look quite
so tempting as at the beginning of
the berry season. I must confess,
however, that it has always seemed
wicked to cook strawberries as the
flavor is partly destroyed when sub
jected to heat, but in order ' to give
variety with this, the greatest favo
rite of all berries, many delicious
ways of using them are desired.
Berries should be most carefully
prepared for use, rejecting all that are
not perfectly sound and firm. Put a
few berries at a time into a colander
and let cold water run over them;

washing, on their own leaves unhulled
with a tiny dish of berry or powdered
sugar. This is most attractive for

very little lemon juice. Top all with

Why any woman should want the
original or the imitation of such wan
ton destruction of a beautiful bird is
beyond the imagination; nor why a
dainty Dresden-china .sort of lady

Surely there is nothing at all beauti
ful in these dead bits of one-time
sweetness; rather, something awfully
suggestive of the cruelty in the na
ture of the wearer.
It is told of Mr. Lincoln that In go
ing on a horseback journey' with some
friends he came across a little fledg
ling which had fallen from the nest.
Mr. Lincoln tenderly took it up and
set it on a limb near the nest. When
questioned as to why he bothered
about such a trifle, Mr. Lincoln said,
"My friend, I can only say this, I feel
better for it." Thus, those parents
who fear their children may become
mollycoddles unless they exhibit some
signs of cruel depravity may contlder
this example of absolutely fearless,
candid, American citizenship as exem
plified in Lincoln.

take it away from him, and substitute
for it a camera or field glass to teach
him the beauties and use of this world
of God's creatures. If you do this
he will have no desire to kill and
maim and torture.
