ACTOR DID NOT TUMBLE.
An actor at the Elite theater re
cently made a break while on the stage
that made the audience laugh and
which disconcerted the speaker. The
actor was taking the role of the stern
un- old guardian and he was in a properly
serious mood. His pretty little ward
was listening to the sad story of her
life as told by the stern old guardian
who said: "My child. I have watched
over you since your dear mother
placed you in my charge when you
were a mere child. I have watch-id
you grow up from infancy into beau
tiful manhood ." The audience, which
had listened breathlessly was quick to
see the break and several minutes
were spent in unrestrained laughter,
while the object of the mirth stood
and wondered what had happened.

Gentlemen: Having used your justly celebrated remedy, "La Peruna,"
for some time, i have the pleasure of informing ybu that I consider It the
best tonic I have ever used.
It Is a wonderful fortifier of the nerves after exhaustion and It in
creases the vitality of the whole body, and in my own case has produced
the most complete and permanent restoration. It Is also pleasant to the
taste. 1 ... ..
do not Ssesltate, therefore, to recommend this remedy to all women
as the best mod most pleasant tonic that they can possibly take.
Yours very truly, (miss) H. monterde.
No matter how long you have been a sufferer from ail

pose. To exercise, stand before an
open window, noiaing your arms:
straight out from the shoulders, palms
up, clinch the hands as tight as you
can, bringing them over to the should
ers, using all the resistance possible
in the movement to the shoulder and
in taking it back to the first position.
Do this 10 or 12 times, and a3 many
times during the day. Another effect

your fingers to the back of your head
and bring the elbows together in

hands getting so chapped, I would ad

rub in the almond whitener every
time you wash your hands, if you wish.

what is claimed for them and then use!
them conscientiously every day, I. am'
sure you 'will have no difficulty in
greatly improving the condition of

Cold water is more essential in the
care of the skin than any other one

are Home skins that cannot use even a
mild soap und in such cases, I advise
skin clean-o. Your skin will be softer,
smoother and cleaner, if you wdl
cleanse first with princess cold cream
before washing. Then wash in waran
water, with a drop or two of tincture!

common sense in caring for your face.
I cannot tell you just how long it will
be necessary for you to massage your
face with skin nourisher daily in ordsr
to remove the lines. You must fol

flesh is firm and smooth. If you would
