What They All Have to I.edrn To the man who has for new tires, a couple of springs, and anew pair of lamps, the cost of automobiling as a pastime is apparent. But it is* doubtful if, even at the monuMlt Jic unfolds the bill ard first in all its magnitude, he automobiling has already cosUFne United States more than sl,- 000,v'*0.000, enough to wipe out the na tional ,'ebt. or to psy twice over for ail the "Dreadnoughts" built or build ing for the navies of the world. Even this figure hardly expresses the cost which the world is paying for its joy ride. The number of machine owners is increasing at an astonishing rate. Ten years ago there were only 3,500 cars owned in the United States. At the end of 1909 there were 250,000: now there are 400,000. In 190s only 55,000 cars were manufactured in this coun try. The following year the number increased to 80,000. In the ten tr >nths of 1910 to November 1, 175,000 ma chines were produced. Automobiles were exported to the value of $11,190,- 220. Two companies were incorporated, one with a capital of $60,000,000, tak ing in twenty subsidiaries, and the other with $15,000,000. bringing together eight or ten smaller producers.

They only aid your appearance temporarily and in time will work more barm than good. You should get at the root of the matter by treating the skin itself. Just get an ounce and a half of pure coleated b&lstn from vour drnggist and apply it'at night after a thorough cleansing of the skin with warm water. This acts upon the skin quickly and hart lessly flecking off the thin outer veil in tiny particles like dour and giv ing the fresh blooming skin under neath a chance to breathe and assert itself. You will never need to use cosmetic*, cold creams, lotions, etc., again, for your complexion can be kept perfect by the use of coleated balsm. local market report i Hogs $5 25 - SS.To: 'Cattle 1.00 - 500 j 1 Veal 6.0 m - 7 uoi j Sheep and Lambs 3.

They will only lower the price of your eggs. Gather vour eggs every day and market them once a week or oftener.

A MOVING GOAT DAIRY At an early hour one morning ; I witnessed what I had expected to see ; somewhere in Europe, but hardly in I Paris. I saw a flock of black, long horned goats on the sidewalk and in the street. A man was milking one. A women was standing by and fondling one by stroking its Head. After a few moments the naan got up, gave the milk to the w’omar. and was paid for it. Then he called to the goats and they all moved on. A traveling dairy, to be sure. I wished for my kodak. One afternoon, hot and tired, I sat down on one of the iron chairs on the Champs Elysees. A woman came over from a stand and poked a block of receipts at me. I didn’t look at first, suppesing she was one of the many parasites of Europe. But she persisted ar.d I saw f he leaflets were marked 10 cer times. I asked, "What’s that for?” She said. ! rapping the chair, "Pourles shnires.” ;1 raised my weary limbs and stfode on, saying, ‘I didn’t know anything that.” I noticed some French people ! a little further on taking the chairs and |no one molested them. On the Eiffel j Tower I had a similar experience. Some ! telescopes were there and until I saw | others using tnem and paying nothing I did not venture. When I did immedi ately a women presented a receipt for j fifty centimes (10c* s) and in disgust I let ! go of the telescope ar.d walked away, j The innumerable devices which they spring upon foreigners, which they do ! not perpetrate on their own kind, are a nuisance until you learn to let every thing alone till you know whether there is a charge for it to the foreigners or not. A CITY OF SPLENDOR The one day I spent at Versailles was j the most enjoyable in France. The ! gardens are extraordinary. Aithongh ’ the plan presents an appearance of j stiffness, there is beauty everywhere. I Deep shade in groves and magnificent : avenues of trees, fountains, rows of i statuary and vases the subjects being i ancient and modem, elaborately de ; signed flower beds, terraces, itiirwavs. j trees trimmed to shape, seats provided —everything unlike anything in Paris. : and very grand indeed. Within the ; palace I visited the hall* of sculpture, ! the historic galleries in which hundreds 'of canvases, some very large indeed ;form a pictorial history of France, the j royal apartments of Luuis XIV and • Marie Antoinette. Alt the rooms which ;i; saw, with a few exceptions .were finished in gold and some were elabo rately carved. When I saw the splendor of this magnificent palace ana knew i that its hey-day everything else was on ! a par with it in the doings of royalty, I did not wonder that the oppressed people, cn whose backs all the burden of this extravagance rested, rebelled. Of course there v.as much to enjoy in France and I did enjoy it. But I enjoyed Switzerland much more. Of that'l will tell you, all being well, in my next. Yours sincerely, Percival D. MaCallum.

Home Remedy lor Double Chin and wrinkles (Ladies' Home Magazine) Whethei penly, or down deep in her heart, e very woman deplores the coming of wrinkles, “crow's feet” and a double chin, as well as enlarg ed pores. The wise woman doesn't attempt to patch up her face with patent dreams, lotions, cosmetics, etc. She realizes these are only tem porary aids to her appearance. If every woman knew that she could go to her druggist and get an ounce and a half of ola-fashioned thermodized jelly, and by rubbing half a teaspoon ful into her face daily she could rid herself of her wrinkles or “crow’s feet,” her double chin or .ter black-' heads very quickly—why-the ans wer is, there would be fewer women wearingwrinkles and the other things above mentioned, and incidentally— she would learn that the real trouble lay not with the outer cuticle, but the fibrous tissue underneath. This needs heat-givirg nourishment, and thermodized jelly will supply it as r cubing else will.
