'J he dllilculty of the program lay In
the Interpretations ol the music, and
therein lay Mrs. Burmelster's charm
and talent. Through it all might be
heard the tread of stately knights,
the trump of men In armor, the heart?
beats of women, whose souls were fire,
und above it the passion of struggle
mid stress of murin. Sorrow sobbed
In the melody, and great love sounded
Its notes In the song. It was a won-1
derful afteruooq.

Real Wrinkle Remover
A New Sensation
(Broadway Weekly.)
Those scowling lines between the eyes,
the crowsfect radiating from the eye
corners, tiic worry line.-, that mar tin:
forehead, the lines extending from the:
mouth corners, whether produced by
mirth or sorrow?all can be easily and
quickly dispersed, no matter how deep or
obstinate. Just stir an ounce of saxolite
in a half pint of witch hazel, bathe the
face in the solution?then look at your?
self in your mirror! You can't help ex?
claiming, "Will wonders never teasel"
Evidently this saxolite lotion has cre?
ated something of a sensation since the
formula became known in this country a
short while ago. Its effectiveness in re?
moving wrinkles and sagginess, together
with its simplicity of preparation, narm
Icssncss and iiiexpcnt-ivencss, form a long
sought combination. Almost any druggist
can supply saxolite in powdered form,
which dissolves instantly.

Oil. Mr. Taft> we
hear thai you aro
ready to sit down
and write
Your message to
Congress, as nil
Presidents must
do.
And we would say
we have upon our
minds at present
quite
A lot Of things on which we'd like
some good advice from you.
The message Is supposed to tell how
this old nation should be run
And how the proletariat should man?
age their affairs.
There are some mooted problems we
would mention 'ereyou have begun
To write, end so we load on you the
burden of our caros.
Pray tell us In your message how
we're going to buy twelve tone of
cool
And clotheG for wife and sevon kids,
pay for gas and rent.
And reach an Independence which
should be each thoughtful hus?
band's goal.
When meat and groceries each week
consume our last red cent.
How can wo start a bank account?
Where do some of us get a chance
To follow Rockefeller's path and
garner In the dough,
When wo have drawn our salary a
good long fortnight In advance?
That's ono thing, Mr. President,
that we would like to know.
How can we hook our wife's new
gown and not use language thut's
profane?
How can we cross the street and
keep our head
When to much automobile driving Is
unsafe, also Insane,
And we must choso to be quick or
be dead?
How can we all preserve our health
when some Insidious microbe
thrives.
In everything we eat or even touch?
Can't you suggest some simple way in
which we may prolong our lives?
Wo trust that we're not asking you
too much.
These Munt Make Ananias .lealniiM.
"Why! how do you do? I was Just
thinking about you when the door
opened and In you walked."
"I wouldn't give the snap of my
linger to spend next summer In Switz?
erland. Right hero under my own vine
and flg tree is good enough for me."
"Drop In any time to pot luck. Wo
will always be perfectly delighted to
have you surprise us."
"I kin take a drink and quit and not

Medicine Hat.
It Is a small dot on the government
map;
This town we speak of, you know It
mayhap.
It's gained a large portion of world?
wide renown
For being a rather cantankerous town.
And it has pulled down qulto a large
bunch ot fnme
By working an ungrateful sort of a(
game.
There's no doubt about It when wo
tell you that
They make all the blizzards at Medi?
cine Hat.
They raise nothing else In that far
distant clime
But weather, and they're raising thnt
all of the time.
A blizzard that comes from that dis?
trict, by Jlng. .
Is no lnmltation, but is tho real thing.
Their bllswards have ull of the little
chills and the shakes.
And no ono can charge them with
sending out fakos.
Nobody e'er saw a blizzard fall flat
When it was sent out from old Modl
'clno Hat.
According to Uncle Ahncr.
Why not call It the weather bureau?
Tho bureau usually can't lyjll whether
it will or whether It won't*.
Judging from his trips, another
thing that Taft needs more than an
assistant president Is a trafllc man?
ager.

Our Idea of nothing to wear is a

One thing I would like to know is
where the fellers who own automo?

How to Always Have
Soft, Lustrous Hair
" If every woman but knew, how easy
it is to have a wealth of soft, silken hair?
all her own?there would be no further
use for switches," says Mrs. Man Mnrtyn,
writing in the Sacramento Post. "It is
only a matter of right shampooing," she
continues, "wheih means avoiding head
w.ishes of a harmful nature.
"With ordinary canthrox one can en?
joy the delights of a cleansing, soothing
and very beneficial shampoo. Just dis?
solve a tcaspoonful in a cup of hot water
and your shampoo is ready, This rubbed
on the head loosens all dirt and dandruff,
energizes the tissues and follicles and
promotes a healthy condition of the scalp.
After rinsing the hair dries quickly, evenly
and takes on a charming softness and
lustre that adds greatly to womanly
L beauty."
