6Vi5 LI. I ZAITU TmSQJ
Dear Mrs. Thompson: As you
have helped me so many times be
fore, I am coming again for advice.
(1) Should a daugher-in-law go in
deep mourning for her husband's
father, or can white and black be
worn? (2) Do you consider it proper
for a young man of twenty-one to call
on a married woman of thirty when
ber husband is at home? I went to a
church service a short tlma ago and
my . husband was at home when a
young man from Georgia called. My
people and his have lived in one flat
and he moved South seven years ago,
when he was only a little boy. He
knew I was married, but wanted to
get acquainted with my husband and
also had messages from his mother
for me, but my husband never asked
bim in after he first called and my
husband has ' made me a nervous
Am only married a year next month
and my hands tremble like a person
of ninety years old.
(1) Half mourning would be suf
ficient, but If you wish to please your
husband it might be well to wear full
mourning for six months. All white
mourning is very fashionable now.
- (2) I can see no harm in the young
man calling upon you under the cir
cumstances you name, and your hus
band is very foolish and unkind to al
low jealousy to get the upper hand of
him. If your husband is brutal to
you and your health is suffering, bet
ter leave him for awhile. Go on a
long visit somewhere out of town.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) Please
tell me a cure for warts. I have eight
warts. 1 have tried nearly everything
and I am sure it spoils the looks of
my hands. (2) How is my writing?

. (1) It is said that if you apply kero
sene to the warts several times a day,
they will drop off in a short time.
Muriatic acid is sometimes used, but
it is dangerous to handle and may
leave a bad scar. Use a brush and
just paint the wart with the acid.
(2) It could be better, my dear. (3)
Banana Custard Pie One cup sweet
milk, three-quarters cup sugar, two
tablespoons flour, two eggs (save the
white of one for frosting). Cook this
like thick cream, add one teaspoonful
vanilla. After cooking, bake the cus
tard, slice two bananas into baked
crust and pour the custard over them;
beat the egg whites and put in the
oven, to brown. (4) She is not old
enough to have beaux, but I like to see
girls and boys friendly with each
other. (5) It is very bad taste to wear
much jewelry, especially for a young
girl, because her sweetness and fresh
ness and purity are adornment
enough. If you wish to wear jewelry
it is better to wear one good piece
than several cheap ones. Everybody
knows imitation cheap jewelry. (C)

CELEBRATE SILVER WEDDINS.
TODAY IS THE SILVER WED
dlng anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. A. J.
Hill and this fact being known by
members of the Ladles' Mission so
ciety of the German Immanuel's Luth
eran church they carried out a roost
meeting. A short business session
was held, followed by a program con
sisting of a paper by Mrs. C. A. Curry,
and a most interesting description of
"The World in Chicago," by Mrs.
T. E. Newland, and a piano solo
by Miss Florence Spaulding. The ses-
soon deferred from their pious notions
by an occasional firecracker explosion.
The public started early for the
parks and on auto trips. By 5 o'clock
the "bubble" class was astir and hik
ing for the broad fields and the leafy
dells, in an attempt to find a shady
nook. The parks of Rock Island,
Davenport and Moline were all visited
by big crowds who will probably stay
I out in the open as long as possible,
taking their dinners and supper in
Perhaps Rock Island never had as
quiet and as sane a Fourth as that
enjoyed today. This wasperhaps due
to the state law relative to the sale
of toy pistols. Chief Brinn had is
sued strict orders that arrests would
follow any attempt of merchants to
sell the dangerous pistols and as a
result the boys of the city had to
content themselves largely with the
crackers. And parents and the lads
themselves were evidently confused as
to whether even the omnipresent
cracker could be bought and as a re
sult the telephones at the police sta
tion were kept hot all day with anxious
inquiries regarding the matter. When
told that they could be used, invari
ably the questioner gave a sigh of
relief and the boys went back to their
punk to resume their fun.
This afternoon there are horse
races on at Exposition park and motor
boat races on the river. A racing
program and other features are sched
uled for Joslin race tracks, while Mo
line, Geneseo, Mathersville, Andalusia
and other neighboring towns are en

It seems as though she rang for the

the car was going stepped to the
pavement. She was thrown and when
aid reached her she was in a semi
