FOR PIMPLES, TOO.
New Discovery Cures Eczema and
Eradicates Minor Skin Trou
bles Over Night.
About a month ago the dispensers of
poslam, the new discovery for the cure of
eczema, decided to allow the druggists of
the country to handle it. Previous to that
time it could only be obtained direct from
the laboratories.
Since this change in the method of dis
tribution, poslam has met with the most
phenomenal success of anything intro
duced to the drug trade in the last thirty
years. All leading druggists, including
Ogram's in Washington, are now carrying
the special 50-cent size recently adopted,
also the $2 jar.
This great success is not surprising
when it is remembered that, in eczema
cases, poslam stdps the itching with first
application, proceeds to heal immediately,
and cures chronic cases in a few weeks.
In minor skin troubles, such as pimples,
blackheads, acne, herpes, blotches, rash,
etc., results -show after an overnight ap
plication. Experimental samples oi pos
lam are sent to any one by mail free of
charge by the Emergency Laboratories, 32

Proposals for Bridge Ornaments
Hay Be Rejected.
Bids were received at the District buTfd
ing yesterday for furnishing the four life
sized imitation bronze lions which are to
be erected at the north and south ap
proaches to the new Connecticut avenue
bridge, which the Commissioners expect
to throw" open to the public immediately
after New Year day. There were only
two bids received for the work, and. ac
cording to officials of the engineer de
partment. it is likely that both of them
will be rejected.
The bid of the W. H. Mullin Company
of Salem, Ohio, which was ?:i.!WX>, is con
sidered by the authorities to be too low,
and apparently represents a cheaper prod
uct than the Commissioners desire to
have ornament the approaches to the
bridge. The second bid, made by the J
I., Mott iron works, which has offices in
this* city, was $9.42S, and is considered to
be too high. ~
The Commissioners have SJS.fv1 to spend
for these lions, and tliey may ask lor
other bids.

LAW OF WIDER SCOPE.
Commissioners Recommend Legisla
tion Regarding Personal Taxes.
The Commissioners have forwarded to
Senator Gallinger, chairman of the Sen
ate committee on District affairs, the
draft of a bill making personal taxes in
the arrears a personal charge against
persons owing such taxes, and recom
mended its early enactment. Regarding
the necessity for this legislation the com
missioners informed Chairman Gallinger
in a letter accompanying the draft t..at
the enforcement of the present law has
proved to be tedious and in many respects
impracticable.
The proposed legislation provides that
the collector of taxes of the District of
CoKimbia he authorized to bring sui
therefor in the name of the District in
any court of competent Juri^dic tion in the
District or to bring suit against a per
sonal tax debtor in any state or federal
court where the debtor may be found.
In their letter the Commissioners said:
"In the city of Baltimore tile authorities
are meeting with great success In making
seizures for unpaid personal taxes upon
judgments, the procedure being- to sue?
delinquents before a justice of the peace,
seize the property on writ of execution
and sell or hold the same in abeyance
pending the discovery of the ability of the
owner to pay. This feature has been
demonstrated as practical and is consid
ered essential to proper and successful
enforcement of the law."

One article of the new bill, which raised
the bitterest opposition of the right party,
limits the suits for recovery of pious
foundations, such as masses for the re

foundations shall go to public charities.
