io gei permission to enter the big event
next Saturday, yesterday they gave up
hope of takln- part, though they re
ceived permission to get Philadelphia as
spectators of tne race. The crew stop
ped practicing and was not on the water

the weather permitted.
However, the matter was 'placed be

to approve the request. The mid
shipmen will be matched In the

obtain warrants for them, and then al
low the courts to decide the merits of
the cases.

nourishment that causes hair to grow
abundanuv and lustrous.
Parisian Sage Is guaranteed to put an
end to dandruff; stop falling hair and
scalp itch In two weeks, or money back.
Large bottles 50 cents, at Henrv Evans
and James O'Donnell. and druggists
"I used Parisian Sage and it did my
hair a great deal of good. I find it a
very good hair tonic, the best I ever
used. It's a very good scalp cleaner,
hair grower, and beautifler." Yours

Any invention that saves time and labor is bound to come into
universal use. Witness the sewing machine, the telephone, the
electric light and scores of others. They were received with doubt
at first; now every intelligent person takes advantage of them.
So Fels-Naptha soap will some day be used by every woman in
this country who washes clothes. More than a million now make
it save them time, bother and hard work, and the number is grow
ing every wash-day. If you are not one of these million modern
women, you will be some day just as
soon as you have courage enough to break
away from old-fashioned methods. Every
week your delay means another half day
of backbreaking labor, coal or gas wasted,
danger of colds from steam, unnecessary
wear and tear on clothes.
With Fels-Naptha you can wash in cold
or lukewarm water without hard rubbing,
and in half the time it takes by the wash
boiler method. Follow closely the direc
tions on the red and' green wrapper.
No Imitation for Anty Drudge.
Grocer's boy "The boss told me to tell you he was just
out of Fels-Naptha, but that this soap is just as good,
and he's sure you'll like it."
'Anty Drudge "Just out is he! Well, he's going to
be out some more. If he thinks I'm going to use an
imitation of Fels-Naptha, just so's he can get a big-
.ger rake-off, he's got another think coming. Some
other grocer will get my trade in the future."

whenever you are hot, tired or thirsty insert it in a bottle of cold
and in a few minutes that languid air you bore before
you stepped inside the drug store will have passed away

The highest point of woman's
happiness is reached only through
motherhood, in the clasping of her
child within her arms. Yet the
mother-to-be is often fearful of
nature's ordeal and shrinks from
the suffering incident to its con
summation. But for nature's ills
and discomforts nature provides
remedies, and in Mother's Friend
is to be found a medicine of great
value to every expectant mother.
It is an oily emulsion for external
application, composed of ingredi
ents which act with beneficial and
soothing effect on those portions
of the system involved. It is in
tended to prepare the system for
the crisis, and thus relieve, in great
part, the suffering through which
the mother usually passes. The
regular use of Mother's Friend will
repay any mother in the comfort it
affords before, and the helpful
restoration to health and strength
it brings
about after S; -.4?. A
baby comes.
