(2) Is her marriage to husband No.

free to marry?
(S) Can she be prosecuted for bigamy?
(4) Please state what steps to take
In the matter.
(5) Will she have to obtain a divorce
from husband No. 1 and remarry hus
band No. 2 to make her marriage to
husband No. 2 legal?
(1) Divorce husband No. 2 for deser
tion, then marry No. 2. (2) Yes. (3)
A court would not old her guilty
under the circumstances. Have you
kept the letter announcing his death?

Dear Mrs. Thompson : I am a man

more or less ever since I was a "kid,"
but for. the last few months I have
taken the same girt (two or three

hasn't been out with men much or is
she "different," from most girls? Al
though we differed so greatly on that
occasion, I do not think my friend is
angry now, as she treats me aa usual
whenever we chance to meet.
. TROUBLED TOM.
Look here, Tom! Haven't you sense
enough to know a decent girl when
you see her?
- If you were 30 instead of 20 you
would be looking for just that kind of
a girl to marry a girl who allows no
liberties to any man except the one
she loves and the one who expects to
marry her. ,
And you, my boy, are not doing any
thing manly in being angry because
she i "particular." A self-respecting
girl and a girl worth knowing is
always "particular," no matter who
the man may be. And just because
she is, you know you can trust her
and that she isn't letting any sort of
mushy creature slop around her.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) I belong
to the "King Harold's Missionary." I
am on the "silver side" and we have to '
entertain the "blue side." Would you
give a musical entertainment, or would
you take the other side to the woods
and go fishing?
(2) .Would it be best to have your
hair cut off short to your head after
having typhoid fever? (3) What will
grow hair quickly?
A KING HAROLDER.
(1) This time of year they'd proba

than a musical entertainment.

has grown very thin. (3) Rub a littje

The First National bank of Daven
port enjoys the unique distinction of
befng the first national bank in opera

the event called up the interesting his
torical past of the concern. .
President Lincoln approved the na
tional bank act Feb. 25, 1863 and on '
the next day an application for a char- j
ter for the Daver.port bank reached'
the treasury department in Washing-;
ton, having been forwarded on the i
24th by Corbin & Dow, who obtained
leave at that time to subititute aj

proper time. But' several weeks elaps-1
ed before the new comptrolier of the
currency, who was designated by law '
to administer the act, had perfected
the rules for the guidance and control ;
of national banks. It was well along
in the month of May before the arti- j
cles of association, prepared in the '
comptroller's office, were received in ,
Davenport. On May 25th the subscrip-',
