Heat Process for Wrinkles
and a Double Chip
(American Journal of Education.)
It has recently become known
that wrinkles, sagging flesh, double
chin and enlarged pores are due to
the starved condition of the tissues
underneath the cuticle, and a lucky
discovery has been made that old
fashioned thermodized Jelly will
heat and feed and nourish these
tissues. If you go to your druggist
and pun hase a small tin box of
thermodized Jelly, rubbing It freely
into your face till it is absorbed
ami following by a wash of real
cold water, you will begin immedi
ately to get results.
The Impoverished tissues will re
spond very quickly, and the result
is that your whole face will soon
be restored to its youthful, healthy,
solid firmness. Also stubborn cas
es of long standing beauty ills, such
a sallowness. pimples, liver spots
and freckles, too, have been found
to give way very quickly to home
treatment by using pure coleated
balsam, which Is also easily ob
tained at the drug store.

SPEAKS TO FAIR
A Joint meeting of representatives
and employes of the department stor
of the three cities is being planned
by James G. Feltus, of New York, who
visits regularly the large establish
ments in cities all ' over the United
States spreading the gospel of better
store service and more efficient sales
manship. Mr. Feltus, started in as a
cash boy in the establishment of John
Wanamaker. New York, at the age of
12 and at the time he severed his con
nection with that firm was superin
tendent, after a continuous service ol
18 years. Mr. Feltus arrived In Dav-
enport yesterday morning and devoted
the day to an inspection of the Fair
and this morning spoke to the em
ployes of that establishment on "Store
Service." At the conclusion of his ad
dress, Mr. Feltus accompanied by the
newspaper men made a tour of inspec
tion of the store, at which time it was
pointed out that the Fair, both as to
management and conduct of employes
was on a par with any of the big Chi
cago concerns, size of course being
taken into consideration.
The keynote of Mr. Feltus' address
was that the employes made an estab
lishment, and their conduct and sales
manship largely determined the repu
tation of the store.
He said in part: "The quality of a
piece of goods determines the price
and to the same degree the quality of
salesmanship determines the wages of
the employe. Every clerk should
strive to increase sales without addi
tional cost to the business. Honesty,
loyalty, enthusiasm, patience and cour
tesy are qualities essential to success
ful salesmanship. The matter of ad
vancement is up to each one of you in
dividually. Opportunity comes to the
store early in the morning, takes but
a very limited time for lunch and is
the last one to leave at night. To be
a successful salesman you must have
a personality that will build up for
you and the store a personal follow
ing. "The other qualifications are a know
ledge of people and a knowledge of
your merchandise. Be a business
builder as well as a money getter and
make your customers permanent ones.
The clerk should aim to make a favor
able Impression upon the customer and
interest him. Do not interest yourself
in your particular department alone,
but work for the store as a whole. Af
ter making a sale of dress goods, for
Instance, call to the attention of the
buyer the excellent trimmings in the
next department, and prevent his go
ing elsewhere for them. The introduc
tion of goods is at present a lost art.
Devote and concentrate your entire in
terest upon your customer. Employ
your spare moments in familiarizing
yourself with the stock and gaining a
knowledge of the business, and ad
vancement will come."
Mr. Feltus will be in the three cit
ies until Tuesday when he leaves to
fill an engagement at Des Moines. He
plans to visit the Fair store four times
a year, and will return to Davenport
in about ninety days. He is carrying
on his particular line of work through
out the entire country, from coast
to coast. Mr. Feltus plans to eliminate
the western territory and confine his
efforts to the east and the middle

It Is the purpose of the promoters
of the organization to include every j

lines will be obliterated in favor of
advancing the welfare of the club. The
German-American alliance is back of
the move. It is the intention to or
ganize a strong club and then begin
plans for a big club house.
