Health and Beauty Queries
BY MRS. MAE
B. B. S.: Although gray hair Is
: sometimes caused by worry, it is
generally due to a diseased scalp,
, as Indicated by such symptoms as
the dandruff, itching scalp and brit
tle falling hair of which you speak.
To restore your scalp to a healthy
condition, first keep it clean by
shampooing every ten days or two
Weeks with canthrox, - then massage
the scalp, using a good quinine hair
tonic You can prepare the tonic
yourself by adding one ounce of
qninzoin to a half pint of alcohol
and a half pint of cold water. This
Is much better than most ready-prepared
hair tonics as it contains noth
ing to make the hair coarse, sticky
or stringy. It will remove the dan
druff and stop your hair from com
ing out. You will iind it an ideal
'dressing for the hair and very re
freshing to an itching scalp.
B. M. D.: (a) Do not let your
superfluous flesh worry you. Even
though you have spent many dollars
trying different Bo-called "flesh re
. ducers" without any of them doing
a bit of good, I want you to try this
one. I have many friends who Tell
me it did wonders for them. Get
four ounces of parnotis from any
drug store, dissolve it In 1 pints
hot water and take a tablespoonful
a few minutes before each meal. It
is harmless and will cut down your
fat rapidly without the necessity of
dieting or strenuously exercising.
,(b) That good eczema remedy you
ask for is called luxor.
A. F. S.: To be sure, health and
beauty go hand in hand. Indiges
tion and sluggish liver cause impure
blood, which in turn breeds ugly
blotches, pimples and skin eruptions,
accompanied often by depression,
melancholia and headaches. These
may be all removed by the judicious
use of a simple home made system
tonic and blood purifier, made as
follows: Dissolve one ounce of kar
dene and one-half cup . of sugar in
one-half pint alcohol; then add
enough hot water to make a full
quart of the remedy. Take a table
spoonful before each meal. Kardene
stimulates the digestion, arouses a
torpid liver, purifies the blood and
gives tone to the whole system. By
a natural process the complexion is
cleared, the "tired feeling" vanishes
and energy and enjoyment of life
G. E. A.: It may be all right to
ute dry shampoo powder where you
are very careful to brush out all of
tho powder; otherwise it will clog
up the pores in the scalp and cause
dandruff the very thing you should
avoid. y'To keep your hair looking
bright and healthy and make it stay
In curl, you must not use a shampoo
that contains alkali, as soaps and
most shampoo do. Dissolve a tea
spoonful of canthrox in a cup of
hot water and you have a shampoo
that can't be excelled. It will re
move that excess oil and irritation.
This shampoo dries quickly without
causing ,streaky, faded patches in
the hair. It will make your hair
'soft and fluffy so it will stay up and i

To Vote on Three Questions. As a
result of the decision of the board
of supervisors, three important ques
tions are to be submitted to the vot
ers of the county at the general
election of Nov. 8. These questions
are whether or not the county shall
establish a juvenile home of its own
at a cost of $15,000, whether it shall
establish a county hospital for the
care and treatment of tuberculosis,
scarlet fever and measles, and
whether or not it shall purchase 38
voting machines, each machine not
to cost to excess of an average of
$750. These three propositions are
to be placed on the ballots and will
be left with the voters whether or
not the propositions are to be car
ried into effect. All questions were
given thorough consideration by the
board at Its meeting and after dis
Most Remarkable Gathering in
It was a most unusual assemblage
which gathered in the auditorium of
the James Milllkin Univerislty, De
catur 111., a few weeks ago.
It is unusual for country echool di
rectors to meet in a body and it is
still more unusual for them to meet
with the teachers, but they are doing
unusual things in Macon county.
There were two important numbers
on the program. J. c. Thompson of the
state superintendent's office voluntar
ily set himself up as a target for ques
tions and Miss Anna Barbre of Taylor
ville belivered an address.
One important duty of the superin
tendent of public instruction is to ans
wer legal questions relating to schools;
his office Is under a continual fire of
questions of this kind and one man
gives his entire time to this work and
that man is J. C. Thompson. He has
been at it so many years that he has
become a walking encyclopdia of
school law; he knows the statute by
heart and has the decisions at his
look nice without the use of a hair
net or veil.
Doris: If you wish to make a
greaseless complexion cream jelly
that will quickly clear your com
plexion of freckles, tan and sunburn
without the necessity of several
months' treatment, you easily pre
pare it at home by mixing together
an ounce of almozoin, two teaspoon
fuls glycerine and one-half pine
cold water; stir briskly and let
stand over night. Where applied fre
quently you will find this an excel
lent cream for removing wrinkles,
blackheads, freckles, roughness and
other skin blemishes. It will leave
the skin smooth, clear and velvety,
and is a matchless preparation for
massaging and reducing the size of
large pores in the skin.
T. H.: Plain delatone Is the best
thing I ever heard of to remove
superfluous hairs from the face and
forearms. It costs much less than
the electric needle, is painless and
requires little time. Of course, the
hairs may return, but if they do,
they will be thin and light in color
scarcely discernible. A second or
third application will rid you per
manently of the arnoying hairs. Del
atone costs a dollar an ounce, but
one ounce is all you will ever need.
Simply mix a little delatone with
enough water to form a paste; cover
the skin from which you wish to
remove the hairs with this paste;
let it remain two or three minutes,
then wipe off and wash with warm
Mary F.: By devoting Just a little
time each day to the care of your
complexion, you can ward off the
marks of approaching age and have
the same attractive, youthful-looking
features as your younger friends.
Use a good, greaseless complexion
cream (see answer to Doris) and
instead of clogging up the pores of
your skin with face powder, get a
dependable lotion and use it exclus
ively. You can make such a lotion
by buying four ounces of spurmax at
your druggist's and dissolve It In
one-half pint hot water; then add
two teaspoonfuls glycerine and when
cold, apply freely to your face, neck
and arms. This lotion is Inexpensive
and unequaled as a skin beautifler.
It does not rub off or show like face
powder and you will find it excel
lent for removing that shiny, muddy
look from your skin. I find it good
for removing and preventing freck
les, skin pimples and any unnatural
B. W.: If my eyes continually
had that tired, overworked feeling
you say yours do, I would lose no
time getting a good tonic for them.
My eyes are inclined to be weak and
I keep them In good condition by
using a simple inexpensive remedy
made by dissolving an ounce of
crystos In a pint of water. A few
drops in each eye occasionally will
readily relieve inflammation and
make one's eyes bright and spark
ling. Try this and I am sure you
will not - need to wear glasses. It
is a splendid tonic for weak, watery
eyes, also 'granulated lids.

GET SOME FACTS
Macon Oonnty J, O. Thompson on
Barbre on Truths.
Mr. Thompson was introduced by
Mr. Barrows and for more than an
hour stood the fire of questions. Ap
parently every conceivable question
was asked and answered. It was fas
cinating exercise for the directors and
teachers and it did not seem to weary
Miss Anna Barbre, superlnteadent
of Christian county schools, gave an
Interesting talks of an hour's duration.
She confessed that she had never had
so large a collection of school directors
where they could not escape. She stat
ed a good many blunt facts stated
them with a wealth of incident drawn
from her own experience as a teacher
and a director.
To the nirwtor.
Among others things Miss Barbre
said: "The school director is elected
to an office which he doesn't want and
is holding it, often, against his will. It
was thrust upon him by the three or
four voters who attend the school
election. He doesn't get any pay for
his services, yet the country school
directors of Illinois are a fine lot of
men and I am surprised that they do
as well as they do, yet they should
not forget that they hold an Important
position. They are officers of the law
and have a duty both to the teacher
and to the patrons of the school.
"It seems to me that in no other
vocation in" the wide world have the
employers such confidence in employ
ees, as school directors have in teach
ers. They hire them teachers, many
of them without experience put them
in charge of the schools and leave
them to work out their problems the
best they car.. Often the directors
never go into the school house except
to replace a broken pane of glass?, or
a burned out grate in the stove. They
never look into the school room to see
how well or ill their employee is doing.
"The school director's duty does not
end with hiring a teacher and furnish
ing him with a school house. It is his
duty to know what that teacher is
doing and to help in every way pos
sible. Little Trouble Grow.
"If there .ire little troubles In the
school and most of the school troutr
les are little troubles the persons
most interested, the teacher and the
directors, are often the last to discuss
them. The teacher talks about them
over the phone to some other teacher,
a thing she ought not to do, and the
director talk3 about them to other
patrons of the school, a thing he ought
not to do. Often these troubles could
be smoothed away If the director
would go to the teacher and frankly
talk them over, and the teacher will
be grateful to him for coming.
"To you teachers I will say this;
if you don't like children don't teach.
You can't succeed as a teacher unless
you like children. And when you hire
to a board of directors, see that you
give them the best work that is in you.
They are entitled to something more
than five hours a day in the school
room. I know a teacher who goes out
from town on Monday morning, hires
a liveryman to take her from the sta
tion to the school and to bring her
from that school to the station after
school on Friday afternoon. That
teacher is not giving that Bchool all
It is entitled to. It is her duty to 6tay
In the neighborhood, to know the
people. Much depends upon the atti
tude of the teacher toward the country
lite. If she can not make herself a
part of it, to understand it and enjoy
it, she has no business teaching in the
Be. I'nlform and Accurate.
"In your teaching be accurate, be
deflnate, be uniform. Be accurate in
your teaching every day. If necessary,
sit up at night to prepare your work
for the next day. You must know
what you are endeavoring to teach and
how you are going to teach it.
"No teacher teaches well because of
the money he is paid. He teaches well
because of what is in him. If he teach
es well the money will come. When
you go out to begin school make up
your mind that you are going to teach
the best school that was ever taught
in that school house. If you do, you
will be a real socializing influence in
that district. Remember too, that
while the Supreme court of Illinois has
decided against the teaching of the
bible In the public schools it has not
decided against teaching the principals
of the bible."
Before the meeting closed an organi
zation of dlrectorswas effected by the
election of a president and a secretary.
Since that time ten school districts

Sechler'g Change Name. At a meet
ing held Tuesday afternoon D. M.
Sechler Carriage company board of di
rectors voted unanimously to change
the name of the manufacturing con
cern to D. M. Sechler Implement and

president, said: "The board favors the
change in name because our present
title does not set forth our full line
of goods. We have for some time
been turning out a large amount of im
plements, but despite this fact the
present name causes the uninformed to
