The ordinance provides that all
five-cent loaves of white and

rye bread shall weigh not less than 15

and graham bread were found to weigh
from 13 to 17 ounces, while some loaves
of rye bread weighed 17 ounces.

Cosmetics can never really help a
poor complexion ; often they are posi
tively harmful. The sensible thing is
to actually remove the thin veil of
stifling, half-dead scarf skin and give
the fresh, vigorous, beautiful young
skin underneath a chance to show Itself
and to breathe. ,
This Is best done by merely apply
ing mercollzed wax at night, like cold
cream, washing it off In the morning.
The wax can be obtained from any
well stocked druggist. It absorbs the
disfiguring cuticle gradually, harmless
ly, leaving a brilliant natural complex-
Ion. Of course this also takes with it
all such blemishes as red blotches,
moth patches, liver spots, blackheads,
pimples, etc. As a freckle remover
and general complexion beautifler this
old-fashioned remedy is unequaled.
