a number of chimneys to topple over;
was felt throughout the liedmont sec

: Publication Sunday in The News and
- Observer f the unwedded .lonesome
plight of good salaried young Amer
icans in the Philippines and their long
ing fur American wives has set the;
State's feminine heart to fluttering in
a manner that suggests the addition
of a matrimonial bureau to this pa
pers' already - multiplied activities.
Everybody's talkiug about it, and two
of the sex, who want their names with
held, have written the editor of the
..paper asking the address of one of the
lonesome ones. N
Unfortunately, this paper hasn't the
addresses. More unfortunately still,
the paper finds that it hasn't room in
its present- building to establish the
matrimonial bureau which the speed
of these responses on a bare hint has
warranted. This suggestion is thrown
out to those whose hearts have flut
tered. A communication to the governor-general
of-the Philippine Is
lands, Manila, ought to reach the
proper spot.
Thst only two of the State's women
braved possible publicity to get into
touch, with the unmatched exiles is not
saying that the hearts of only two were
touched. And those who care to write
to the far-away islands need only a
two-cent-stamp and patience to wait.
Remember that the isles are half
around the world, and that an answer
will be a long time coating. But 4
June wedding is not impossible if ac
tion is quick.

Last Monday Mayor C. J. Mc

talking the matter over these gentle

to the-number now owned by. them,
making five in all. x
With other cars added to the number
now in use it will be necessary to lay
another section of track at some point
in the business district of the city in
