-1 There were incidental trips to Berlin and up the Rhine, and more or
less dull sojourn in Paris. But principally the pilgrimage to Litchfield.
The. solemn village in Staffordshire has no distinction in the world
beyond being the place where Johnson was born. The tall, narrow house
standing close between others bears a plate on its face that s.ets it apart.
The worthies of Litchiield may read as they go that in the year of grace
seventeen hundred and nine Doctor Johnson first saw the light o\ day in this
house. Few others take the trouble to travel so far. Doubtless none ever
journeyed from California before, directly or indirectly, to go to Litchfield;
though pilgrimages to Stratford-on-Avon and Chelsea or the Dickens places
are common enough.
In a way, Doctor Xewmark was doubly repaid. His devotion has won
a disciple. In London a friend was encountered, a certain and well known
San Francisco man. who had read Johnson in college, and forgotten him
since. The two discussed plans for their tours, and the journey to Litchfield
of course. Why go to the friend protested. Why not do the
coffe- !id London haunts of Johnson, and let it go at that? Presum
ably Doctor Xewmark explained. The country lanes where Johnson walked
and dreamed of Mrs. Thrale, or preferably of more important things than
romance. Of Rasselas and all the fine philosophies that won the worthy
Boswell. Presumably Doctor Xewmark spoke of these and quoted Johnson
by the page, .without a single error. Presumably the friend gave in and
realized at last that Johnson was the greatest man who ever lived in England.
At any rate, he went to Litchfield.
When Doctor Newmark returns from abroad this week the certain and
■:nown friend will be left temporarily in England, but surrounded by

LO9 ANGELES, Nov. 5.-—"Babies In

necessary. This traffic in infants has

What Women Use
To Be Beautiful
Those who can find nothing that
will protect trieir tender skin from the
cold and wind should try this and they
will no longer suffer from winter com
plexion upsets: Dissolve four ounces
of spurmax in one-half pint witch hazel
(or hot water), and add two teaspoon
fuls of glycerine. Apply this, with the
palm of the hand, to the face, neck and
forearms in the morning: and It will not
rub off or show like powder. It Is a
true complexion-beautifler, for It re
stores and preserves the soft and rosy
color of youth. This inexpensive lo
tion is especially fine for those who
have dark, sallow or oily skins.
"Shampoo" is a word of Hindoo
origin and means "to lather, rub and
wash the head." When using can
throx for shampooing, dissolve a tea
spoonful in a cup of hot water; pour
on the head a little at a time and rub
well —Just as you would with an ordi
nary shampoo; then rinse the hair and
si-alp thoroughly with warm water.
Canthrox makes an abundance of lather
and will remove that fine scurf of which
many complain, for it Is nothing more
nor lees than dandruff. Don't use soap
when shampooing, for it leaves the
scalp hot and hard and causes streaks
in the hair when drying. When you
use canthrox the hair dries quickly
and is soft, bright, fluffy and not
Here Is a Fable About
ONCE upon a time a Married Lady with a Perfectly Good Husband and
Three Remarkable Children met a Long Lost Friend of her Girlhood in

Remarkable Children she had a Vocation. She painted
Miniatures on ivory and she lived in a Studio with
another Bachelor Girl and Three Angora Cats.
Now after these Two Friends had fallen upon each

could see her play witK it. She's too cunning for anything."
Girlhood Friend: "Yes, dear. I know she must be. I've been painting
some pictures of children lately. They are rather hard subjects ,but Mrs. L.

The Married Lady: "Xo, dear, I never heard of her. Speaking of pic

pictures on her slate. You can almost guess what they are meant for without
her telling you."
At this juncture the Girlhood Friend remembered an appointment, and
they kissed each other goodby Adoringly and promised to meet again Soon.
That night the Married Lady told her Perfectly Good Husband that she
had met her Girlhood Friend. "And she paints pictures and goes around
with Bohemian people," she said. "And she can't talk of anything else. I
never saw any one so self-centered."
That night the Bachelor Girl told the Other Bachelor Girl that she had
met her Married Lady Friend. "And all she could talk about was her hus
