SOAP IS BAD FOR THE HAIR Soap should be used very spar ingly, if at all. if you want to keep your hair looking its best. Most soaps and prepared shampoos con tain too much alkali. This dries the scalp, makes tlie hair brittle, and ruins It. The best thing for steady use is just ordinary mulsilied cocoanut oil (which is pure and greaseless), is cheaper and better than soap or anything else you can use. One or two teaspoonfuls will cleanse the hair and scalp thor oughly. Simply moisten the hair with water and rub it In. It makes an abundance of rich, creamy lather, which rinses out easily, re moving every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and excessive oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and it leaves the scalp soft, and the hair fine and silky, bright, lustrous, fluffy and easy to manage. You can get mulsilied cocoanut oil at any pharmacy, and a few ounces will supply every member of the family for months.

HUNTINGDON HAS POST OFFICE ROW Lesher's Ambitions Appear to Be Bitterly Opposed Among the County Seat's Folks Huntingdon, Pa.. Jan. 11.—The sub ject now uppermost In the minds of the citizens of Huntingdon is the ap pointment of a postmaster to succeed Howard E. Butz, Republican, whose term will expire February 5. Several candidates are in the .field and the town has been well canvassed for en dorsements oy petition and letter. The candidate most bitterly opposed Is Joseph G. Lesher. acting chairman of the Democratic county committee. Lesher claims that he was elected chairman at a meeting of the county committee a few months ago, but this Is disputed Tsy his predecessor, J. Mur ray Africa, who insists that he. and not Lesher, received a majority of the legal votes cast in convention and that he was therefore elected county chair man. Notice of contest was served on Lesher by Africa soon after the con vention, but no action has yet been taken by the State committee in the matter. When Lesher announced his candi dacy for the post mastership he said he would have the endorsement ot Congressman Frank L. Dershem, of this district. But the congressman has repeatedly declared he has not yet ondorsed any candidate for the ap pointment, although he expected to do so soon. He will act this week, it is believed. The opposition to is pronounced. Among other things, It Is urged that he has no Just claims upon the appointment, as he has been a resident of the town only a short time, having moved hero recentlyfrom Sny der county. It is charged, also, that in becoming a candidate for post master Lesher is acting in bad faith. Democratic leaders in Huntingdon and Huntingdon county, especially those who have been actively identified with the movement of the "reorganized" Democracy, are openly opposed to Lesher and doing all they can to pre vent his appointment. Among other persons named as can didates for the postmastership, real and supposed, are John C, Dtinkle, Peter Oerlach. G. W.Miller, D. F. Mobus, W. S. Herncane and John C. Gillam. Some of these have circulated petitions: others have not. iisiGiw OFFICIAL TRADE MIRK Harrisburg Trademark Issued By Chamber of Commerce. Harrisburg. Pa. THE HEARToAJ^y/pisTßißUTiow mm— Baaaa "Harrisburg, the Heart of Distri bution," will be called to the attention of every one receiving correspondence from Harrisburg business houses through the use of a trademark design being fuurnished to members and printing houses by the Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce. Electros of this trademark can be had on application at the rooms of the Chamber of Commerce in the Kunkel building. Following a meeting of the executive committee at the Harrisburg Club this statement was made: "That Harrisburg can rightfully claim to be 'The Heart of Distribution' is shown by h statement received by Secretary E. L. McColgin from Wil liam J. Harris, Director of the Cen sus. Washington, which states that a special estimate made after measuring the districts taken in by six different circles gave the following result as of April 13. 1910: Radius, miles.

"The Chamber of Commerce desires to have every business man in Harris'- burs print the trademark shown on his letterheads, envelopes, advertising matter, labels, etc. They advise that it will cost nothing extra and it will show to the world that local people realize to the utmost the distinctive advantages of the city for business. It! will perhaps induce interests who could transfer business here when serving the population mentioned above to get in touch with the Cham ber of Commerce. "The. Chamber, therefore, requests that when printing is ordered arrange ments be made to include the design.

Dixon. State Com missioner of Health, calls attention to the necessity for taking good care of the skin during the winter months as well as in other times. The com missioner discusses the skin in one of his weekly health talks says in part: "Few people pay sufficient attention to the care of tlio skin. A certain number of both sexes devote no little time to the care of that portion which appears above their collars, but few understand the real importance of the functions of the skin. "We breathe through the skin. A considerable volume of oxygen Is ab sorbed by the body through the pores of the skin. These poisons are elimi nated through the glands of the skin, passing off in perspiration. "The skin is one of the body's ther mostats that automatically regulate its temperature. If the heat grows exces i clve the blood vessels in the skin dilate | and permit the circulation of an extraordinary amount of blood near the surface. This permits the radiation of the heat from the blood and the corresponding cooling of the body and stimulates a more active combustion. "When the body is exposed to cold. If the skin Is properly performing its functions it will contract and drive the blood away from the skin to concen trate Its warmth near the vital organs. "The ends of the nerves which give |UB our sense of touch are located in the skin. In order that these various functions may be properly carried out it is essential that the skin be well cared for at all times. If the pores are not kept thoroughly clean the poi sonous excretions instead of being ex pelled are reabsorbed by the blood. Such a condition also prevents tlie skin from absorbing oxygen, as It should do when properly performing its functions. Then, too, there ia the question of beauty. A clean, lielathy, well-groomed skin is geneulnely at tractive. "Soap and water should be vigorously applied, but no soap left on the skin after bathing. Sleep and exercise In fresh air combined with good food and plenty of water are better than all tho skin foods and beautifiers and their consistent and regular ÜBB will add materially to the general bodily health and well being."
