Circulation 19,500 i becoming peeved Over houses without numbers dear editor there is something which Peeve me very much. I would like to Call it my a Opet peeves but i Haven t had it Ion enough for it to becom a pet. Thus i write this with the Hope that perhaps certain Peeve makers will read this end keep my present Peeve from becoming an abhorred pet. The cause of my Peeve or combination of peeves rather is the prevalence of houses throughout the City without numbers or with unintelligible numbers upon them. It la Nice to get a delivery Job. But not if you have to inquire at five houses to locate one. This would t i need to be done if All houses had a lain readable numbers upon them. He House finding Job becomes even harder and slower after dark. There might As Well be no numbers As White numbers on a White Bons or Brown numbers on a Brown House As is often the Case. As a final Pica i beg and beseech be who live in numberless houses or the equivalent to put or paint numbers someplace where they can be found at any time and read at night without standing on the porch railing and lighting matches at a Penny a Box. If something in t done pretty soon another a Opet peeves shall but a , and the fewer of those and Gerals the better methinks. I yours truly r. H.

When you have to come up from the basement or Down from the attic to answer the j Telephone Only to be asked if you want to buy some article or service you feel you Are being victimized. It certainly does not cause of to be inclined to make Pur i chases from the calling and Only politeness keeps you from asking a oif All of Racine to firms used this method what would we Ever get done besides answering the phone a Only a few firms do this and i wish they would see How futile As Well As unfair it is. This does not apply to solicitation by philanthropic societies. D. J. Riverside drive views bicycle Sheds As Aid to pupils dear editor this is not a pet Peeve but merely a suggestion. There Are Many children who have bicycles and would take them to school if it were not for the danger of having them stolen. In these Days they Ere not Safe to he left outside the school.

Next to you or in Back of you. Or All three Are maintaining a continual barrage of coughs sneezes and sniffles not Only is it disconcerting but it is dangerous also. One person can cure a cold at Home in three Days but that same person if he frequents Public places not Only plants sure growing cold germs in every person near him. Hut he perpetuates his own affliction also. A ure one cold and you have prevented a thousand and the Only cure is the stay at Horae it .

The Story was written by col. P. T. Etherton organizing Secretary of the Houston it. Everest flight. The. Inventor who found his Retreat by is known As a death Ray ?� before getting this nickname he was Harry Grindell Matthews from whom Tho British government bought a motor boat controlled by Light with guns that were fired by Searchlight beam. Works in lonely Section. Now in the midst of 31 Square Miles of territory leased from the Duke of Beaufort he is living in a Bungalow and Laboratory guarded by barbed fences and secret Ray burglar alarms. He found his Retreat by flying Over the Welsh mountains. He has i own Ai drome Large enough to receive bombing planes. Col. Etherton a personal Friend of the inventor is the Only Man. To reach his Retreat and obtain an. Interview from him. The interview As recorded in the sunday express follows in part a Osome of his work in nearing completion. Here Are his objects a Oto perfect a device for detecting the presence of submarines 30 Miles away. A Oto discover a Ray to kill disease germs.
