" THE BINGHAM NEWS, BINGHAM, UTAH This it your corner. Make ute of it for your information on questions that are puzzling you. It will be my pleasure and privilege to answer care-fully and promptly all questions submitted to me. If a more detailed answer than can be given in these columns is desired, send a stamped envelope and it i will be given prompt attention- - All communications will always be held absolute confidence. All letters should be addressed very plainly a pen and ink to Helen Brooks, Box 1545, Salt Lake City. Xt,(Z, Dear Miss Brooks: I have been a very interested read-er of "Our Corner" for some time. Seeing: you have helped so many girls by answering their questions. I thought I would come to you for help. For some time I have noticed that the skin on my neck has been very coarse, and looks like goose flesh. I have used different kinds of treat-ment to remove this coarseness but nothing seems to do any good. Could you tell me how I can get rid of this ? I noticed a few weeks ago in "Our Corner" that a girl in California wrote to you asking you to get some one to writ to her. If you still have her address would you kindly let me have it as I feel that I would like to write to her? Wishing: you a suc-cess in your work, I remain, BIRDY, Delta, Utah. The condition you mention must be due to exposure to the wind ami sun Considering' all these things I havo come to the conclusion that if a lit- tle flirting, and a few kisses will brin me a good time I shan't be above granting them. A girl doesn't . spect a boy who merely goes with her for those things and I should never kiss a man that I really re-spectedjust for a good time. Will you please give me the opin- ion you hold of my decision. Yours hopefully, ''"'! MILLY, Shoshone, Ida. I am sure, Hopeful Milly, that your decision was not and is not final, for I am sure you are making a wrong one. I wish I could talk to you and tell you just how much the world of boys and girls, men and women, who have really acomplished anythinga'or hope to accomplish anything in this world, think of the girls who hare pursued the course you are now pur suing. And is not your self -- and the respect respect of your associates worth more than what you mistakenly think constitutes a "good time?" You used the small word "if well When you said "if a little flirting, a few kisses, etc.," do we not know that it is what some are peased to call the "little flirting," the "white lie," the "small theft" which lead to the great crimes which ar committed? When this small indiscretion is com-mitted, it is not often the intention to commit greater ones, but the small ones too often oon seem of no and greater ones are in-dulged In. Perhaps yon have an exaggerated idea of what "good girl" should be. She does not necesasrily have to be a prude. You should by all means go out with young people. Go with a girl friend, cultivate a happy, jolly dispo-sition, wear a smile, be as entertain-ing as you know how to be, and you ' will soon find there are boys who ap-preciate a girl of that sort more than the one who allows him too many privileges. Save your affection and caresses for THE man you respect and admire above all others and who cares for you for yourself alone and who admires you for just what yoo are now doing holding yourself ab-solutely above reproach. although it is difficult to tell with-- ut seeing the skin. I believe using good cleansing cream followed by a good tissue builder combined with gentle massaging or patting will rem-edy this condition. I am glad you are interested in our little California friend. Her name and SMTJ,.! ,MiM Myrt1 Chapman, Burrel, Calif. Thanks for your kind wishes. Dear Miss Brooks: I had a very 'dear boy friend but about eight months ago he said some-thing to me while angry. I have want-ed very much to renew our friend-ship since then but haven't had the courage. It would be impossible for me to speak to him. Would it be proper to 'phone him or write him a letter? Have I let things go on too long, or is there time now to make tilings right? I would like to find out if he cared to regard me as a friend again. How can I? Thank you very much. DOLLY, Mt Pleasant, Utah. We sometimes pay dearly for allow-ing ourselves to become angry, do we not? It would altogether depend on what you became angry about I should think, as to whether you could write to him or not. If you felt you were too hasty and were not justified in your condemnation, you should have let him know in the beginning. If you should telephone or write to him now, unless he has shown a desire to re-new your friendship, you would be placing yourself in a very unenviable position. My advice would be, my dear, to wait until he shows some in-clination to again be friends, which he will do if he cares about it. Dear Miss Brooks: I am one of your constant readers and have found many helpful hints. So if you will spare a little time and answer my questions I shall be thank-ful. I have read so much of removing freckles, j Would you recommend this to any-- i one? I should not care to use it if It injures the skin in any way. Isr and lemon juice also ood to usq on the skin? Thanking you in advance for your kindness. A READER. I am delighted to know you find helpful things in my comer. I am striving to make it valuable to my readers. I could not recommend othine for the skin. It is severe and very dry-Plea- se send me your address and I will write you a private reply re-garding the preparations about which you enquire. .This is a very bad time of year to try to remove freckles as all freckle removers are more or less severe on the skin and during the hot months they return very easily. Try removing them dur-ing the winter months, then the skin will be better prepared to withstand the hot summer. !f you r!!! stai a ttsnipt.-- l envelope I will give you a list of reliable pre-parations for all kinds of skin blem-ishes. Dear Miss Brooks: X am a girl, seventeen years of age. Up until now it has been my idea in life to be a "good girl." I have never flirted or done any of the things! which other girls do. As a result l stay at home, while other girls at-- : tend dances', shows and other enter-- 1 tairoTwnts with the young men. It is hard to say, but tra that I have never had a date with a man any-- ! where nrr my own age. j When I think it over and realize that I deprive myself of these things simply to preserve the respect of others I wonder if it is worth it. No one respects a girl v,bn s'ay ? at home all fire timo evei if they'think and say they do, and no girl likes to go ! -- e j UTAH AHDjIIAHNS BUte Paragraph News Items of Interest Salt Lake-rEngage- is nnnouno d by the state board of health of A.

All three are lessons In good taste, In positive beauty. And the Philadelphia struc-ture is the finest of the three. . . . The State house Is a beautiful building, alike In Its mass effects and In Its smallest details, In the views of It from the exterior or In rooms within. Its facade Is exactly centered, and similarly winged and arcaded at right and left It Is beautiful and it Is balanced. Viewed From the Outside. Seen from Independence square, which Is a large open space, stone paved, with Intervening surfaces of grass and fair-size-d trees, it is a tow-ered building of time-mellow- brick, with white window stones, with small-ish pillared doorway beneath a tower built outside the lines of the main building, and, over this doorway, a splendid Palladlnn window. Above are cornlclngs, and a fetching, bulg-ing, bow-fronte- d window, and above this Is a clock-towe- r, square at the bottom and rising in eight-side- d dimi-nutions to a six-side- d narrow pinnacle which Is topped by a trident-lik- e weathervane of gilt Enter beneath the triple Palladlan window, with Its heavy niuntlns, and passing by the foot of the finest stairs In America, you enter a broad and brick-pave- central hall; and there comes the sense of a glory of white, with Americanism by the worst features of our national life, or by our failures, is much as It would be to Judge Chris-tianity by the lives of those who, pro-fessing a belief In It have been trait-ors to It. There Is much to alarm and dishearten, but there Is also much to cheer and give hope, and abundant reason and ground for faith. ; So we of all people ought to be able to "greet the unseen with a cheer." We are facing not the twilight with Its shadows, but the glories of the dawn. Therefore, the American is, as well he may be, the most hopeful of the sons cf men. Many Lovely Vistas. The stair mounts, ramp by ramp, within the great tower; a broad stair with broad treads and low risers ; and On the second floor, as on the first, there are everywhere long and lovely vistas of distinction. And on the sec-ond floor Is a great banqueting halt entered through a delicately be1i flowered doorway topped by a beauti-ful fanlight, occupying the entire length of the building; and at each end of the great room Is a broad fire-place, with the Intent that the two shall flicker at each other with One-ness of effect ... A tang of especial distinction Is given to the admirable Chestnut street face of the State house by the un-usually high keystones, of marble, which center the brick above each of the ample windows and rise Into a Rich in 1 1 Noble H Memories 111 A building of serenity and sym-metr-of fine amplitude, a gracious, alluring building, rich In noble mem-ories, yet touched also with a living sweetness; such is the beautiful old State house In Philadelphia, often re-ferred to as Independence hall. And It stood here, and was even then a building of age and dignity, when Sir Walter. Scott said to Washington Irv-In- g, with a tolerant condescension which he meant to be flattering, "The vast aboriginal trees that have shel-tered the Indians before the Intrusion of the white man, are the monuments aad antiquities of your country 1" Scott was quite Ignorant of the fact that America had architecture ; to him, our country bad merely trees, al-though this building, and some other American buildings, were richer In beamy and In noble association than qulW a number of those In his own land of which he wrote with such en-thusiasm. Scott was deeply Impressed by the band of dark gray marble that ex-tends across the entire one hundred and seven feet of the building's front; and by a line, above this band, of nine panels of marble, beneath the win-dows of the second floor. The quoins on the comers, and the fine wooden cornice and balustrade, add still further distinction; and In all It Is a noble and distinguished building, rich In noble and distinguished memories. Robert Shackleton In "The Book of Philadelphia." touches of mahogany and darkish green. The rooms are serenely beautiful; they are dignified, large and light; there are pillars and pilasters, there are charming cornices, there are pan-els; In every direction one sees beau-tiful corners or vistas or entrance-ways- . The views through the arches of the room of the Supreme court. Into and across the Hall of the Sign-ing, denned by those three pllastered arches, Is astonishingly effective. At the foot of the wonderful stairs now stands the Liberty bell, upon which may still be rend the Bible verse which long before the Bevolu-tlo- n was cast upon It by Its mnkers: "Proclaim liberty throughout all the land, upon all the Inhabitants thereof." Problem Before People. There Is abundant room for Im-provement,' but the point Is that Im-provement consists fur the most part In adherence to the original plan, or at most In slight change: or modifica-tions, such as have been made from time to time not all of which, by the way, have proved to be wise. The problem Is one of applying sound and well-trie- d principles to life, removing obstacles to the efficient working of tested machinery, and realizing In thought and act the noblest Ideals. From this point of View, the attitude of Americans should be appreciative and grateful, rather than critical. To turn for Hunt from America to Russia Is very like turning from Christianity to voodoolsm. To Judge America or thought of our Illimitable forests. He longed to see one, as Dickens longed to see an American prairie. And had Scott come over here, and had he seen not only a forest but this State house, his Imagination would have been fired, and he might have written a great novel about America, rich in details of the Revolutionary leaders, with the picturesque John Hancock, In scarlet coat and cocked hat with black cock-ade, entering this building to preside at the signing or the Declaration. . . . Beautiful In Many Ways. The State house, "Lehfendence rial!," was planned In 1729 and com-pleted, except as to whig and tower, five years later; quite old enough, one lees, to satisfy even a Walter Scott 1 But It must not be thought that It Is beautiful or Interesting principally on account of age. Age adds to a beauti-ful building the salt and savor of time, the romantic patina, literal or meta-phorical, Unit comes with the decades. But this State house Is beautiful In Itself; It was beautiful when It was young and new; It will remain beauti-ful as long as It stands, with Its tradi-tions growing more Interesting with time. After all, Philadelphia was the largest and richest Colonial city of Great Britain, and so It was natural (hat a fine administrative structure ihould be built here. And it was put up In the same period which saw the construction of two other admirable state houses, that of Boston (not the stately pillared building of the pres r-f- :kr-; --.jru VAT; Jl.v--- ' 'rowd LUsning to the Late Senatcr Knox Deliver Independence Dy Adclris, at Independence Had, L ,... -a j t SALT LAKE BUSINESS DIRECTORY BCSINEgS COLLEGES xtDTsTlJsTNKsTcoTL School EfTlclenry.

It Is the fashion among some today to belittle the Declaration of. Inde-pendence as a meaningless document, as a mere gesture which those who framed and signed It did not Intend to be followed with deeds. Nothing Is more false. Nor Is It true that In the essentials the evolution of the United States has departed from the Ideal that was in that paper given expres-sion. Those who signed the Declara-tion knew perfectly well that they could not create a nation by a mere stroke of the pen nnd were aware of the tremendous difficulties ahead, not merely those of liberation, but those of construction and organization. They knew that they were but taking tho first step nnd that in thv long Journey there would be departures from the straight path. ,1"','t ' brilliant to represent glbitciiliig drop f ,i,,Wi Headdress tor Brides.
