THE BOCK ISLAND ARGUS. SATURDAY. AUGUST 2, 1913.
Dear Mrt. Thompson: (1) Will you
please give me a list of some odd
names, with the first letter B, for a
v (2) Also some pretty names for a
boy. with the letter M?
(3) Please tell me bow I can take
a mole off the back of my neck?
MRS. B. W.
(1) Bernice, Babette, Bertelle. Beth,
1 1 &.-7:
(2) Mark," Merton, Maurice, Martin,
'(3) I can only recommend that the
mole be cut oft by a surgeon. A cor
rosive acid would take it off, but it is
too dangerous to be handled by an in
experienced person and you might be
scarred for life.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I enjoy
reading your piece in the paper. Some
times I think I could read a whole
page that you write, or more. I am
eighteen years of age.
' (1) What can I do to make my arms
(2) I have blue eyes and real light
hair; do you think a blonde type pret
tier than a brunette?
(3) Would you have anything to do
with a young man if he just came
around to see you when he and his
best girl are on a spat ? And when
they on a spat he claims he loves me.
(1) The good old fashioned remedy,
my dear, was to scrub floors and do
the family washing. But modern girls
would rather massage their arms w ith
cocoa butter. Eat nourishing food"
breathe a lot of fresh air and when you
walk swing your arms. Help mother
with the housework, too. Managing a
broom will do a lot to make your arms
(2) I think young girls who are
sweet and unspoiled, without vanity,
with their own hair prettily eombpd
and their own complexions without
any paint or powder, are the prettiest
things in the world, no matter what
color of hair or cqmplexion they have.
(3) I think I would laugh at him. He
seems to be making a convenience of
you. He probably likes you as he
would a sister to whom he can tell
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) I have
just completed a story to be given in
series in a magazine.
It is pathetic and to all whom I read
it I have caused tears and praise. I
therefore wish to send it to some
good magazine. Please select one for
me. (2) Also tell me what is a fair
price. (3) Do you write on one side
of paper, and does it make any differ
ence if with ink or pencil? (4) Who
must give .pictures? If I must, how
can I secure them? IDA.
(1) I cannot venture to advise you
what magazine you should send your
story to. Better stop in at your book
store and look at the magazines there,
then select the one you think would
be suitable for your story. You will
find the publisher's name and address
on the title page of the magazine. (2)
The price is what the editor thinks
best. Unknown writers seldom get a
large price. (3) ou should write on
one side of the paper only and have
your manuscript typewritten if possi
ble; otherwise use ink and write very
plainly. Do not roll the manuscript
when sending it, hut wrap it flat. (4)
Unless you have photographs to illus
trate your story, the magazine will at
tend to the illustrating.

in attendance that is likely to result
may in some cases tax- the capacity
of the high schools.
Rock Island high school already
has a good many tuition pupils, particu

annual tuition charged is 30. Under

maintained, shall be admitted,
upon the payment of tuition, to
