Instantaneous Wrinkle Lotion Easily Made (From Signs of the Times.) Beauty specialists, physicians and chemists long have sought some method of removing wrinkles that would not only be really effective, but that would not injure the skin in any way, nor cause any bad after-effect. A simple astringent and tonic lotion which seems to meet these requirements has at last been found. Any woman can easily make the prep? aration at home by procuring an ounce of powdered saxolitc and a half pint of witch hazel at the nearest drug store, mixing the two. By bathing the face in this liquid the skin immediately becomes taut and firm, likewise the muscular tissue underneath. The effect is to push out and obliterate the wrinkles, as well as to draw in hanging skin about the cheeks, chin or neck. Enlarged pores are reduced the skin looks more refined and the face more youthful. The lotion is wonder? fully refreshing and invigorating. Iron Bed, Spring and Mattress, $5.50. HOPKINS FURNITURE CO., 7 West Broad ARE TIGHTLY SET Capital in This Country Is Con? tracting Instead of Expanding. SHERMAN LAW IS FEARED George W. Perkins Has "Cure,:' Which He Relates to Committee. Washington, D. C, December 13.? George W. Perkins, llnancler and direc? tor of the United States Steel Corpo? ration, who occupied tho wltnesp aland practically all of to-day, discussed with members of the Senate Committee on Interstate Commerce hid Ideas of how a commission could meet the bus? iness situation, and was subjected to a running Are of questions by members of the committee. He said that tho practical way to give the country's "big business" relief from existing un? certainty and depression would be to create In tho Commerce and Labor De? partment a business court or control? ling commission, with the power to license corporations doing Interstato cr International business. Violations of regulations laid down by such a com? mission, he urged, should be punishable by Imprisonment of Individuals, rather than by revocation of licenses. Mr. Perkins said this commission or court should bo composed largely of experienced business men. Ability t6 comply with conditions laid down by Congress In creating the commission and with regulations preserved by the commission ttsclf. ho declared, should be the test of an applicant for license; publicity both before and after l'cens ing should be tho essential feature of these regulations, and every company should be required to secure tho ap? proval by the commission of all Its atfalrF. from capitalization to business practice. Mr. Perkins suggested that In the beginning only broad principles be laid down, with a view to elaborating and perfecting them as conditions roquire. After proposing this plan for Imme? diate relief, Mr. Perkins offered another for "prospective relief.1' This contem? plated the appointment by the Houso and Senate of a committee to make a careful study of the Sherman law ami the various suggestions that have been made regarding Its appeal, amendment and amplldcatlon, and to report on the wisdom and practicability of a national Incorporation act. "Any ono familiar with present bus? iness conditions in this country, both as to domestic and foreign trade," said Mr. Perkins, "realizes that the brakes arc on. We are not expanding our domestic trade to the extent we should. New enterprises ore not being under? taken a? freely as thy should be. Cap? ital In this country Is contracting rathr than expanding Its operations, while Oermany, Canada and other coun? tries are forging ahead with their In? dustrial plans. The reason for this attltudo on our part arises largely from the fear engendered by tho prosecution under the Shermaji act. At the pres? ent time the business man's complaint Is that he does not know when he Is right or when he Is wrong; that this apparently cunnot be known until he is prosecuted and his case reaches the court, and that as matters now stand he does not and cannot know as he proceeds with his business whether he is a good citizen or a criminal." He declared In conclusion that im? mediate relict is clearly desirable, If such relief can be provided along con? servative lines.

No longer is it necessary for women troubled with hair on face or arms to submit to the torturous electric needle, or experiment with injurious prepara? tions, for it has been found that ordinary powdered delatone, mixed with water to form a paste and spread on the hairy sur? face, will remove every trace of hair or fuzz. After leaving the delatone on for two or three minutes it should be rubbed off and the skin washed. Not only will the hairs vanish, but the skin will be left white, soft and firm.
