A New Principle in
Complexion Treatment
(From Society World.)
Most creams r.ro injurious when used
habitually. They clog the pores and
wtifl!tUi fii f?rm a permanent, soggy,
stifling film which interferes wltli
el i mi native action and makes the skin
sickly and pasty. There Is an applica
tion?mercolized wax?which acts unon
an entirely different principle \v/,Tie
perfectly harmless, it has the peculiar
property of removing by absorption
tho dead and half-dead particles of
scarf skin, as well as unhealthy mat
ter in the pores. Thus it takes awav
from, Instoad of adding to, the com
plexion, differing in this respect from
cosmetics. The result is a perfectly
natural and healthy young complexion
Mercolized wax, procurable at. nnvdrug
store (one ounce is sufficient), is ap
plied at night like cold cream and
washed off In the morning.
The correct principle In the treat
ment of wrinkles Is to tighten the
skin, which naturally irons out the
lines. A face bRth, remarkably effec
tive in this direction, may bo made
by dissolving I oz. poWdored saxollte

COUNTRIES SEVERE
WITH USURPATIONS
Individual at Edinburgh Fined
for Using Armorial Bearings
Without Warrant.
11V I,A MAIUIUISE DE FOVI'KNOV.
SIR JASIKS PAUL'S recent action in
imposing by virtue of his otlico
as Lyon King of Arms a lino
upon an individual at Ldlnburgh for
usinp armorial bearings?, assumed with
out due warrant, serves to call atten
tion to the fact that Scotland, like
Germany, Austria and Russia, deal*
very severely with usurpations of this
nature.
In Scotland, the Lyon King, a? prin
cipal heraldic officer of the kingdom or
.Scotland, and as executive oillcer "f
its court of chivalry, has the right to
impose lines, amounting uj? to $5U0,
in such instances, as well as to con
fiscate all gold and silver plate, por
5 celain. carriages, automobiles, harness,
liveries?nay, even stained glass win
I flows and ornamental iron gates, on
which armorial healings are displayed
| for the uue of which no ollicial war
j rant can be produced.
Here on this side of the Atlantic,
where the new-rich are so apt to as
sume as their own any armorial de
vices that may strike their fancy when
offered for their inspection by their
I stationer, their silversmith, or by the
I vendors of their automobiles, their
Carriages and harness, it is well that
this tirovislcu o Scott ih law should
be widely known, in view of the num
! hers who cross the ocean each sum
mer to spend the fall in the Land of
Cakes, many of them leasing shooting
lodges and cartles In the Highlands
| for th 2 season. *
Of course, Lyon King of Arms does
1 not maintain, as in t.lden times, a very
j large staff of pursuivants for the pur
J pose of running to earth offenders
against the heraldic laws of Scotland.
I Rut it only needs the. spite work ot
I some envious neighbor, discontented
? employe, or discharged servant, to
, make trouble, i'or if he or she choose
j to lodge information with Lyon King
! of Arms, at Edinburgh, that.dignitary
\ has no alternative but to investigate
I the case, and if the charge proves to
I be well founded, to proceed against the
> offender.
It must be thoroughly understood
i that these laws apply also to for
eigners in Scotland, as well as to na
! tlves, especially if the arms usurped
without warrant are those of Scotch,
; English or Irish families.
South of the Tweed the laws against
i the assumption of arms without the
i warrant of the Royal College of Her
alds in London are very severe. Rut
there are no longer the former penal
ties. They have become obsolete; and
the result Is- that there is a good deal
of dishonesty in this respect. The
only check which the government is
j able to maintain is by the enforcement
! of the statute providing for the taxa
! ticn of all armorial bearings, and per
J sons are constantly being heavily lined
j for neglecting to pay this impost.
In (iermany and Austria the illegal
| assumption of armorial bearings is
I punishable not only by heaVy fines,
: but even by imprisonment, in France
i there are no longer any laws dealing
1 with this matter, and the consequence
is that some of the great nobles, io
prevent the theft of their heraldic de
vices by strangers of wealth, but of
more or less doubtful antecedents, have
! been ta*king the precaution of reglster
I ing their family escutcheons as trade
j marks. This is the only protection
' which the members of the old aristoe
| racy can invoke against the piracy of
1 the historic quarteringa of their house
1 by parvenus, and even by queens of
! the demi-monde.
The office of Lyon King of Arms is
' one of the oldest of the state in Scot
i land, having been in existence as far
i back as in the twelfth century, in
| 11SSS its holder, bearing the title of
Leo Rex Ileraldoruin, that is to say,
! Lyon King of the Heralds, is recorded
as having fallen at the battle of Otter
burn. At a later date. Lord Drumuiond
, not only forfeited, his vast estates, but
1 was likewise imprisoned for years in
Ulacknc.ss Castle, in punishment for
! the outrage which lie had perpetrated
' in boxing the ears of the Lyon King
j of Arms of his day. >whose person was
j considered sacred.
The office is to-day housed in what
is known as the Old Register House,
at Edinburgh, and it has a wonderful
collection *of archives, extending over
a period of six centuries. Sir James's
heralJs bear the titles of Albany,
Rothesay and Ross, respectively, while
his four pursuivants are styled as
I follows: Unicorn, March, Carrick and
| Scot. Sir James Paul has been Lyon
' King of* Arms for the past twenty
j three years, is a member of the Scot
' lisli bar. and tlie author of a series of
! remarkable contributions to the his
tory of the Northern kingdom.
Sir Courtenay Tlbert, who is now
engaged in delivering a series of lec
tures on constitutional history in
Mew York, at the Columbia University,
j and who will visit several other cities
in the United States and Canada be
fore returning home, lias been for
many years chief clerk of the House
of Commons at Westminster. As such,
he takes a conspicuous though a silent
part in the election of tho Speaker
of tho House of Commons, at the com
mencement of its parliamentary exis
tence, after each general election.
Sir Courteiiay, as chief clerk, when
the TJouso has assembled, after bow
ing towards the empty Speaker's chair,
from his place at tho table Just below,
turns towards the Premier, and with
out uttering a word, impressively
points three lingers at him. The Pvhno
Minister, in response, rises and pro
poses tho election to tho speakership
of the previous incumbent of that of
fice, or, if ho declines the election, then
puts forward some other candidate,
whose name has usually been already
agreed upon v.-ith the leader of the
opposition, who generally seconds the
nomination.
There being no objection rinsed to
the candidate thus nominated and sec
onded. Sir -Courtenay, after the lapse
oC two minutes, as indicated by the
old-fashioned sand-glass on the table
before him, rises from his seat nt the
table and once more silently and
solemnly points with three of his lin
gers at Hie successful candidate.
The latter then rises fro in his seat
in the body of the House, and, ad
dressing1 Sir Courtenav by name, ex
presses his appreciation of the honor
conferred upon him, requesting that
lie may have tin.* support of every
member "without which the 'Speaker
can d?> nothing-, but having which tiiere
is little that he cannot do."
As soon as the Speaker-elect hiis
concluded his little speech, to which, by
tiic by. Sir Courtenay is not allowed
to reply, the' Prime Minister smiles
across the House to th-s leader of tliie
opposition, whereupon both arise from
their seats and conduct the, now
; Speaker to the Speaker's chair. When
the Speaker has thus readied the
chair. Sir Courtenay, again without ut1
tering a word, beckons to the sergeant
, at-arms to withdraw the mace of ot
lice?denounced by Cromwell as "that
1 bauble"?from beneath the table, which
position it has until then ignomlnious
ly occupied, and causes him to place it
on the table, in token that the Speaker
; is duly installed. For the mace is the
j instrument of office of the Speaker, ana
it is borne before him whenever he
leaves or enters the House of com
mons in procession.
Sir Courtenay, who is a Knight
j Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath,
is by virtue of his office as clerk of
the House of Commons, the head or
the permanent staff of the lower
j chamber, is the principal legal adviser
of the Speaker, enjoys a salary of $!0,
000 a year, and a handsomely furnished
i and very stately official resilience.
I lighted, heated and kept in repair by
! the government in the Palace of West
| minster. He is chairman of the Sta
i tute Law Parliamentary Committee, has
been counsel to the British Treasury,
and spent, several years in India as
? head of the department of la'?- at
Calcutta, and is president of the Vice
I regal Council, directing the addition
j of many important statutes to the Code
i of the Indian empire. He is married
lo a niece r.f Dean Bradley, of West
minster Abbey, and his son-in-law,
George Young, of Formosa, on the
Thames, was stationed for several
years at Washington, as secretary of
the British embassy tiiere.

The conclusions of the commission
(*re to bo published in book form with
illustrations and facsimiles of a nuin
! ber of the documents on which the ie
ifpoit Is based. The text will be is
used as o whole, for which the mem
, hers of the commission take tcspon
j siblllty.
One of the noteworthy tasks was
| the minute examination and veriflca
jtion of the famous packet of letters
; frfi.i Greek soldiers captured by the
? uItrarlant; containing horrible descrin
| lions of how Creek soldiers "avenged
i themselves" on Bulgarians who fell
! mto their hands.
i The commission believes that it has
established the authenticity of these
letters. Other documents testify that
the Greeks occasionally made use of
!1 torbidden dumdum bullet, and also
show the misdeeds of Bulgarians and
other belligerents. The inquiry did
I ""l extend to the Roumanians.
All Avnllnhlr Information.
i I ho commission collected material
J f i om every available source After
having seen the ollicials. the commis
sion went lo llu- scenes of alleged
atrocities and interrogated at length
every class of witnesses from soldiers
w.io took part in the battles to women
j and children, who were spectators and
jvictintrt of the horrors. Homo of the
I most important evidence taken by the
commissioners came from children.
\Vhil<j it was found that the Bul
garians had committed the greatest
faults, the soldiery of other nations
also were guilty of many hideous acts!
I ho commissioners appear to be of the
opinion tin* had other billigercnts
been aroused to such a pitch of fury
as were the Bulgarians, they would
I not have acted much bettor.
; lu Bulgaria, the fullest inquiry was
I Invited and every possible facility for
j Investigation was Riven to the cotn
j mission. The Bulgarians In their cam
paign against the Turks behaved In
an exemplary manner. rt would ap
peifr that the Bulgarians who had
borne the brunt of the war against the
, Turks were exhausted at its end and
j thought only of immediately going to
their homes. They had been promised
! this. When they were told that their
j allies had acted in bad faith and had
betrayed them, the Bulgarian fury
burst forth uncontrollably.
Turkey also gave the" commission
every facility for inquiry. The Greeks
did likewise, though a certain amount
of opposition was necountered in that
country.
-Vo Inquiries Permitted.
Servia did its utmost to prevent an
I unhampered investigation, and no ln
jquirles were permitted except in the
presence of a Servian military attache,
j T his attitude reduced the commission's
| work in Servia practically to nothing
and produces a bad impression on the
commission
i i'.aron D'Kslournelles de Constant,
of the commission, says that "the re
port will no', dwell at great length on
the distressing story of misdeeds in the
Balkans which after'all do not prove
so much against the belllgerants as
against war itself."
The report will fully develop the
economic aspects of the war and also
have a good deal to say about the
wondort ul possibilities of development
which lie before the Balkan people.
The members of the commission were
Baron D'Ustournelles de Constant and
Justin Godard, a member of the Cham
ber of Deputies for Franco; Professor
Wilhelm Paszkowski, of the Univer
sity of Berlin, for Germany; Profes
sor Samuel Train Dutton, of Colum
bia University, for America; H. X.
Brailsford, for Great Britain; Her Ued
llch. Imperial counsellor, for Austria,
and M. Miloukoff, the Liberal leader
of the Duma, for Russia.
