Rock Island, 111., Sept. 19, 1920.
Editor Argus: In my former leu
ter, answerinfl that of Ken
neth Miller, I referred to his
- epistolary efforts attacking me; as
"amusing,' and "entertaining." In
' the mouth of two or three wlt-
nesses shall every word be estab-
lished. In his contributions to the
gayety of Rock Island, the conduc
, tor of the funny department of The
. Argus quoted from Mr. Miller's
. reply tomy reply. .
"Secret laughter tickled all my.
, soul" at the spectacle of Mr. Mil-
-.ler's attempt to quote from the
. bible. The verse that with such
- unction he claims to be from the
. sacred writings is not found there.
' It is delicious, my young lriend's
shnultaneous omniscience and ac
tual ignorance!
Then again consider his ipse dixit
that "Tom Paice did far more for
America than did. Theodore Roose
velt!" It is to laugh. a
I As defective as is Mr. Miller's
knowldege of history, and of the
, , scriptures, so defective ia hts logic.
', I will not waste time nor typewriter
ribbon lu meeting it
: It will charitably assume that
when the immaturity of his high
school days is past his argumenta
tive processes will have been im
Moved. Mr. Miller will probably try to
reply & this. I doubt not that he
tnjoys seeing his name in print But
I feel that it will not be worth
while to answer any further affus
ions of his. .
Closing, I would suggest that he
look up in an unabridged diction
ary the secondary meaning of
"Sophomoric, and the 'etymology
of "sophomore." He might med
itate with profit on the definition
and the derivation. As he considers
tha root words from which the noun
ron.es. I would urge him to read

"Of all the motor vehicles in use in the
Middle West, 65 of the total regis

Capper Address, 1920.) Gasoline is tak

on the farms; and not only does it re
duce. the ixian-hours required to pro
duce a given amount of food, but it also
reduces the actual cost of production,
and this despite the advancing price of
gasoline. (H. W. Quaintance "Influ
