Sweden, Russia. Great Britain. Ger
many and Denmark have also been In

SLIGHT OF RECOVERY
After Arrival at Hospital AVoman
Tells Physicians That She Does
Not Care to Live.
Because of family dissensions Mrs.
C. A. Schumacher, 2414 Buckingham
road, Davenport, swallowe'd the entire
contents of a can of household lye yes
terday and is now in a precarious con
dition at Mercy hospital. The doctors
in attendance state that her chances
for recovery are slight.
The rash act was committed shortly
after the noon hour, when the other
members of the family were away from
home. Mrs. Schumacher told one of
her children, shortly after she had
taken the lye, what she had done, and
the child aroused a roomer who was
sleeping at the time. The latter called
Dora Not Want to Refowr.
When Mrs. Schumacher arrived at
the hosnital she said she did not care
to recover, and that the reason for her
committing the deed was domestic
trouble and worry. She is about 50
years of age and has a large family. -

although I have used various reme

Nuts that I was completely cured.
"As a food it is pleasant and agree

and assimilated with very little ef
fort on the part of the digestive or

Grape-Nuts has no equal and as such
is especially adapted to students and
other brainworkers. It contains the
elements necessary for the building .
of nerve tissue and by so doing main

Of one wee speckled thrush.

Of golden notes, whose music flows
Like fragrance dowfi the wind.
The rose lifts up her dewy face
In rapture at his art,
And softly falls his lyric grace
Into the lily's heart.
While one who bides alone, to close
A grief within her breast,
For one brief, blessed moment knows
The balm of peace and rest.

FORBES A DARING AERONAUT.
Formgp Narrow Escape of Balloonist
Wrecked Near Center, Ky.
' The Viking, in which A. Ilolland
Forbes, vice president of the Aero Club
of America and resident of New York,
met with his latest aerial wreck near
Center, Ky., is said to be the largest
balloon in existence, having a gas ca
pacity of So.OOO cubic feet.
Many times Mr. Forbes, who is a
daring balloonist, has been near death,
lie has met with several other acci
dents in his air voyaging that would
have discouraged any one less in love
with the sport. In October of 1908 he
entered his balloon Conqueror In the
International balloon race that started
from Berlin. With him was Augustus
Tost, and the two men had a narrow
escape from a terrible death, for the
balloon exploded when at a height of
4,000 feet and shot toward the earth.
Fortunately the big silk bag formed a
sort of parachute and let them down
easily enough to escape with only bro
Forbes best flight was made in Oc

Lahm cup for the longest flight of the
year. Starting from St. Louis on-Oct.
12, the balloon landed near Richmond,
Va., the next afternoon, having cov
ered the 731 miles in nineteen and a
quarter hours. Forbes said at the time
that he bad ballast enough to have
continued his flight, but that when he
got within sight of the Atlantic ocean
he 'decided to land at once and not run

with his increased Interests his power
in the western state grew in propor

strenuous fights with other interests
out there, and one of the assets of the
defense at the recent trial was the

opposition was still rampant there.

The Quest For Beauty
(BY MADAME MADELENE MAREE)
Mrs. T.: The very best hair tonic
that I know of is made by mixing
half a pint of water with half a pint
of alcohol then adding one ounce of
beta-canthol. I am sure this will
stop your -hair falling out and pro
mote its growth. You can get the
beta-cantho! from any druggist in
one ounce bottles and this will make
a full pint of hair tonic.
Miss L. M.: I wouldn't advise you
to use the electric needle for remov
ing superfluous hair unless you are
sure the operator is an expert. You
can easily remove the hairs yourself
by mixing a little delol powder with
enough warm water to make a paste.
Smear over the hairs to be removed,
leave on for a few minutes, then
scrape off and the hairs will come
off with the paste. You can get this
delol from any first class drug store.
Miss Jennie K.: Wrinkles are
caused by an Impoverished condition
of the skin. The skin needs food as
well as anything else. The best way
to feed the skin is by massaging "with
a good cream. The very best I know
of is made by heating a pint of water
to boiling point, then add three
ounces of cerol and stir constantly
until cold. Massaging morning and
night with this and your wrinkles
will soon disappear.
Anna II.: Those yellow spots on
your face are probably caused by a
bad stomach and inactive liver. Take
a tablespoonful of olive oil every
night and morning for three weeks,
and have your druggist fill this pre
scription: Compqund tincture of cin
chona, one ounce; prosene compound,
one ounce; sherry wine, half a pint.
Take a teaspoonful before meals and
at bed time. This will set your stom
ach right and the oil will start your
liver to action.
Mrs. H. H.: I know just how you
feci. There is nothing so uncom
fortable as tired, aching tender,
sweaty feet. We don't give our feet
the attention they need. I know If
you will get an ounce bottle of boro
listor from your druggist, dissolve
this in one and a half pints cf boil
ing water, then add half a pint of
alcohol. Now every night put a
couple of tablcspoonfuls of this solu
tion into a basin cf water and batho
the feet; you'll be surprised at the
instant relief you will get.
Mrs. A. F. B.: not use thes?
60-caVed dry shampoos on your hair.
They're usually made of strong alka
lies that dry the hair out, making it
brittle and lifeless. I never recom
mended anything but an egg for a
shampoo. I you want a dry hair ton
ic you can make this by mixing two
ounces of capthol with four ounces
of powdered orris root, rub this well
Into the roots of the hair once a da
until the hair Btop3 falling and dan
Rose Bud: If you will get a pack
age of amarol from your druggist,
dissolve the contents in a pint of .hot
water, use on the hands and face
after washing, and drying. I am sure
you will not complain of red bands
and face, as this lotion will keep them
soft and white. You'll not need to
use powder when you use this am
Mrs. Josle Mc: There Is only one
way to get rid of the unsightly pim
ples, and that Is through the blood.
Get an ounce bottle of sarsene from
your druggist. Dissolve half a
pound of granulated sugar in enough
water to make a pint, and add the
sarsene. Take two teaspoonfuls
three or four times a day, and you'll
soon drive these impurities from
W. K.: I do not know of anything '
to suit your case and would adrlKO
you to consult a good physician.
Mrs. ,C. S.: The Vaucalre treat
ment Is very highly recommended for
developing the bust, but I understand
that the ready-made kinds do not
give very good satisfaction. This is
probably due to the fact that cheap
drugs are used in the manufacture.
If you will make a pint of sugar syr
up then get one ounce of gallol
from your druggist, add It to the
syrup and take one or tWb teaspoon
fuls three or four time a day and
drink plenty of water, you will pet
wonderful results. It usually takes
peveral months for a complete treat
ment, to do not be discouraged at
first. The true gallol comes In cne
ounce bottles only. It is quite ex
pensive, but an ounce makes a 'pint
of remedy, which will last for a
Mamie W.: Borothol solution Is the
best preparation I know of for ec
zema. It is made by dissolving two
ounces cf borcthol in a pint of hot
water. Add two tablespoonf uls of
glycerine. When cold apply on cot
ton, three or four times a day.
