Rone Melville, she who created tho part, was "Sis," and ehe was it every minute. Even when she put on store clothes, she was still tho country girl. Avho had the audience, which filled every single row in the house, laughing at the antics of tlie girl whose knowledge of city life, had been gleaned from a visit to tlie county seat on "court day." Sns is funr.y at all timer, but she can he serious, and she was. The audience liked her, and it's a cinch that even though the play is not ax well known as it should bo hereabouts, tho personality of Ross Melville, aside from the very evident worth of the story, will draw packed houses, de? servedly, too. for the rest of the week. But the funniest part of it all is that Dan Marble, relict of the Bijou Comedy Company, and brother to Mary, same surname, is cast as an under? taker. Most of us have seen him as everything else, and now* he is tho fellow who takes care of us last of all. But he is funny. Paradoxical as it may sound, Marble is funny in tlie part. He sings a song, dances a dance, and says many clever things. He, next to Rose Melville, is the hit of tho piece, and that is no disparagement on the other members, tvho are away above the av? erage and more than "worthy of the parts assigned.

February 13.-^-1 Large profits asserted to be inuring' to tho publishers of magazines and Im- j mense losses being sustained by tho \ government in the transportation oi ! magazines as second-class mail ma-ttot at existing rates are mado the basis ; of a statement Issued to-night by Post i master-General HUchcqck in respou3S ( to the attack made by the magazine ? publishers upon the proposed increase : of the postage rate on the advertising pages of the large magazines from one cent to four cents a pound. Mr. Hitchcock makes it clear that the proposed new rate "does not affect newspapers of any kind, nor does it apply to periodicals mailing less than four thousand pounds; of each Issue " "Applying the increase to the entlra amount of second-class mail matter,' continued Mr. Hitchcock, "it would amount to less than one cent a pound." Mr. Hltcacock sayp. "Tn ? a whole-page newspaper adver? tisement, signed by thirty-four of the principal magazines and periodical publishers of the country, It is stated that the Increased rate 'will drive a majority of the popular magazines out of existence, and with them the enor? mous volume of profitable first-class mall their advertising creates.'" Public Should Know. The public should know th^t this change is made in the face of the fact that a part, If not all, of tho signers of the statement, are realizing tre? mendous profits from the vast amount of high-priced advertisements contain? ed iu the columns of their periodical;!, which the government is to-day carry Inj* at the extraordinarily low rate .of one cent per pound, and at a total < 6s! of more than nine cents a pound. ?During the fiscal year 1910 over ?00,000,000 pounds of second class mat? ter was carried through the public mails at a 1038 Of $62,000.000 to the. government, while the returns from third class matter were practically eelf-sustainlnK. and on that of first and fourth-cl isa matter there was-a. large Saving of revenue, leaving the total postal deficit for the year not quit* j 56.000,000. While the other classes ol mail matter pay the cort of t'.ieir oar- ! rlage, and on the first and fourth 1 ! clafses a large revenue is derived, the J ! =;r?-at burden of tho postal deficit lien : ,at the door of second class matter. It ! ' remains to be determined whether tho people who mall letters of ptneral cor? respondence, the publishers of books and pamphlet? and the. genders of small merchandise shall be taxed to meet the deficit caused by the extension of ! the subsidy rate to the publishers of the large magazines of the country." Various protests -were registered to? day against the proposed increase of ' rater, on second class mail matter. M. P. Madden, of Chicago, represent? ing the Typographical Union, came to consult with oificcrs of the American Federation of Labor.

Owners of distilleries in the Second Virginia District. It is understood, are preparing to take some action to have a recent edict of .Commissioner Cabell, of the United State3 Internal Reve? nue Department, calling for tho re? moval of all plpo linos, rescinded. What steps will he taken have not y*t. been made public but prior to any definite ac? tion local distilleries arc. suspending operations. Several of them filed sus? pension papers yesterday in the ollic? of Collector ML K. Lowry, Though he declined to discuss the matter in any way. Collector Lowry said yesterday afternoon that some of the distilleries had filed papers, but Mas unable to say how many. "Was it because the distillers are not satisfied with the order author? ising the removal of pipc. lines that they are closing down?" Mr. Lowrv was aslc&d. "I suppose so," war. the reply. "How many of them have rhut. down?" "I cannot say; in fact. T do not care to discuss the matter?not at the pres? ent time, at least." The pipe line question In distilleries has for many years been a bone of contention botwesn distillers and tho revenue authorities. It is pointed out that by the aid of pieces of hose, spirits may bo unlawfully handled; that tho pipes offer a means tor dishonesty. In order to remove any doubts Commis? sioner Cabell some time ago sent forth ait order setting forth that the plpea must go. Tho owners of the plants declare that they will suffer great inconvonlenca if the pipes, which they maintain sole? ly for the uso of conveying water to tho distilleries from tanks, are re? moved. Besides, they do not relish the imputation made by tha department that they may use tho pipes for unlaw? ful and dishonest purposes. The situation in this district between the authorities and ihe manufacturers of liquor is said to be keen, and rela? tions to say the least, are slightly strained.

If you adopt modem methods of farming, yon will double and qua? druple the value of your land dn less than ten years." and again, "Why shouldn't tho farmers who work h.ird in R?mmer and in winter have all the conveniences in his homo that the city man has?"

"Once in two or three months is as often as it is advisable to wash the hair with soap and water," says Claribel Mon? tague,"the beauty expert. "The rubbing, drying and rinsing, together with tha action of the alkali in the soap?especially the alkali--tend to make the hair coarse, j hat d and brittle. Too much moisture causes the hair to become thin and loso its color. "A simple and satisfactory dry sham? poo is made by mixing four ounces of powdered orris root with four ounces of therox. Sprinkle a tablespoonful of this mixture on the head and brush thor? oughly through the hair once or twice a week. That is all there is to it. This treatment not only keeps the hair light, fluffy and lustrous, but therox produces the growth of new hair." from a merchant whose goods have been models o purity for years.
