You certainly can afford to try a 50c box on this plan, as Samose will cost you nothing unless it gives satisfaction. Adv.

The ordinance also requires that the wagons from which milk, cream or ice cream are sold must bear the names of the owner in letters of a certain size.

Since brown or yellow, over-red or blotchy complexions are decidedly not the fashion, I cannot understand why so many continue to wear them. Surely every woman has heard of mercolized wax. This I know from my own and others' experiences will positively banish -every unsightly tint. The wax really U-kes off a bad complexion. It gradually, harmlessly, absorbs the thin layW of surface skin with all its defects, as chaps, liver spots, pimples, freckles, blackheads. Just as gradually the discarded skin is replaced by the clear, white, youth ful skin underneath. Mercolized wax, procurable at any drug store, is ap plied nightly like cold cream and erased mornings with warm water. One. nunre will nroduce the loveliest ! girlish complexion in less than a fort night. I can't understand, either, why folks will be bothered with wrinkles, since the famous saxolite formula has become public property. One ounce of powdered saxolite dissolved in a half-pint witch hazzel, makes a wash lotion that will quickly efface every line, even the deepest.

THE GRAND TONIGHT. The Divorce Question, Bill. Drama, Is the "The Divorce Question," the human interest P'ay by William Anthony Mc Guire. under the direction of Wingfleld and Ridings, will be seen at the Grand tonight. The solution of our present day marital troubles is not in making divorce easy or obtainable but in mak ing marriage more difficult. The marriage ties are not sufficiently binding, with the existence of the pres ent day divorce laws and the union fre quently becomes more of a moral tie than a legal one dependent more on the honor of the parties concerned. When, however, that quality is lack ing and children are the result of the. union, a deplorable condition is mani fest such conditions confront you in William Anthony McGuire's powerful play.

Thousands of people suffer from bald ness and falling hair who, having tried nearly every advertised hair-tonic and hair-grower wlthWit results, have resigned themselves to baldness and its attendant discomfort. Yet their case is not hope less; the following simple borne prescrip tion has made hair grow after years of baldness, and is also unequalled for re storing gray hair to Its original color, stopping hair from falling out and de stroying the dandruff germ. It will not make the hair greasy, and can be put up by any druggist: Bay Rum. 6 ounces; Lavona de Composee, 2 ounces; Menthol Crystaals. one-half drachm. If you wish it perfumed, add 1 drachm of your favor ite perfume. This preparation is highly recommended by physicians and special ists, and Is absolutely harmless, as it con tains none of the poisonous wood acohol so frequently found in hair tonics. Adv.
