CASTO R I A
WOULD REDUCE SPEED
OF AUTOS IN CITY
Gideon Stolz Makes Some
Gideon Stolz goes on record us against
fast automobile driving, cutting close
corners and the driving of nutos past
street cars while taking on or unloading
pnssongers- In a communication to the
city council at the last meeting, Mr.
Stolz suggested that eight miles an
hour should be the speed for autos in
the center zone and that IS miles au
hour would be right for the outside dis
trict. The present law provides for 15
miles an hour within the fire district
with 20 miles in the residence district,
with a limit of 10 miles passing school
houses during school hours. Mr. Htolz
also favors an ordinance wherein no
curtains shall be allowod within two
feet of the wind shield on each side of
the auto. In turning corners at the
intersection of business streets, he
would cut the speed down to about
three and one-third miles an tinur. Anr)
that these laws should be enforced, he
believes two plain clothes men should
be added to tho police force. Tho com
munication was referred to ordinance

'beyond the bourne" it is prabnbly

thero are sufficiently mystifying it is

to whether or not thero can bo 'any

something in spiritualism Dr. Eddy who
has recently returned from India, says
that he will demonstrate beyond the
point of contradiction at a seance at
tho Grond Sunday night. Ainonii the

HOW TO PEEL OFF A
It 's really a simple matter to renor
vnto a face soiled by dirt, wind or
'old. Ordinary mereolized wax,used like
eohl cream, will transform the worst
old complexion into one of snowy white
ness and velvety softness. It literally
peels oft' tho outer veil of surface skin,
but so gently, gradually, there's no dis
comfort. The wornout skin comes off,
not in patches, but evenly, in tiny par
ticles, leaving no evidence of the treat
ment. The younger, healthier under
skill forming the new complexion is
one of captivating loveliness. Ono ounce
of mereolized wax, to be hail at any
drug store, is enough to remove any
coarse, chapped, pimpled, freckled, fad
ed or sallow skjn. Apply before retir
ing, washing it off mornings,
.Many skins wrinkle easily with every
wind that blows. Au excellent wrinkle
remover, because it tightens the skin
and strengthens rclnxed muscles, is a
wash lotion made as follows: l'owdcred
saxolite, 1 oe., dissolved in witch hazel,
one-half pint. This gives immediate re
sults. Why the Journnl is popular
