The richest man cannot always be
said to he tho most successful, for true
success is not possible without happi

all he now possesses to have tho health
and happiness of a young athlete.
Health is not hard to get and keep if '
good judgment is used in caring forand
supplying the needs of the system. I
.Nature often needs assistance; you
sometimes abuse nature by overtaxing I

Complexion and Hair Specialists. -
The brilliant complexions of women in the more exclusive circles of New
York society arc not explained by the theory that associates beauty and idle
ncss. In fact, many leaders of the world of fashion arc hard workers. Yet
they keep their good looks even when they arc old. How do they manage
it? THE MISSES BELL, of 7S Fifth Avenue. New York, themselves con
nected with some of the most noted and honored families in the metropolis,
have answered the question. They have prepared for the use of women in
general, five preparations for improving the complexion and the hair.

The verdict, however, is known to be
that the allegations which General
Miles made before tho war investigat
ing commission are not sustained with
reference to the refrigerated beef, al
though his contention that the canned
ro:ist beef was not a suitable continu
ous ration is admitted. There is direct
criticism of General Miles for failing to
promptly bring to the attention of the
war department the reports made to
him concerning bad beef, and "several
individuals" are censured for failing to
observe the proprieties of their position
as commanding officers in this and
The forecast of the report as made by
The Associated Press on the .IStli inst.
was an acenrato one. As wis then
stated, the court takes the 'position that
tho testimony is conclusive tliat both
the refrigerated beef and the canned
beef were in good condition -when de
livered to the goVernmcut, and contin
ued so until issued to the troops, ex
cept in sici.il instances, where the de
terioration was due to accidental condi
tions in transportation or .to the influ
ences of the tropical climate.
The report admits the liability of re
frigerated beef to taint quickly after re
moval from the ice chests. The court
finds thu Charges of "embalming" the
fresh beef to have been unsubstantiated
by the testimony and says no chemical:,
were usid to preserve it. It also liuds
that it would have been impracticable
to secure beef on the hoof for the Cu
ban campaign. The finding is likewise
in opposition to the assertion on theiart
of General Miles that the use of the beef
was an experiment.
The fact is set fortli that tho canned
roast beef had not been used to any ap
preciable extent beforo tho beginning of
this war, and it is, therefore, regarded
as.i practically untried ration. In view
of tins fact thd commissary general of
subsistence is roundly criticised for the
