A delightful program was rendered, Harold Stewart giving a whistling solo and Miss Ethel Wyatt Health and Beauty Hints Hester: You say you are taking on flesh at a rate that dismays you, and will faithfully follow my advice If I tell you how to secure stylish slender ness. I am glad to say you will not find my directions difficult to follow, for I do not believe in starving or vio lent exercise to avoid obesity. Just get four ounces of parnotis from your druggist, dissolve it in IV4 pints hot water and take a tablespoonful of this harmless fat dissolver before each meal. Weigh yourself at the end of each week for four weeks and you will be delighted with the result. You will be lighter in spirit as well as body, for parnotis benefits the general health. Mrs. R.: To allay and soothe the ir ritation and roughness of your com plexion caused by hard water, sun or winds apply a lotion made as follows: Dissolve four ounces of spurmax in a half-pint of hot water and add two teaspoonfuls of glycerine. Apply with the palm of the hand and gently rub until dry. Use this inexpensive and excellent face wash daily Instead of powder or cosmetic. Spurmax pre serves the skin and beautifies the com plexion, making It soft, smooth and white. M. S.: I do not think brunettes are afflicted with superfluous hairs on the face any more than are blondes. Of course black or dark hairs are more noticeable. You can easily get rid of them if you will use delatone. Make a paste by mixing a little of the powder with a little water, cover the skin from which you wish to remove the disfigur ing' hairs, let remain two or three minutes, then wire off the paste and wash the skin thoroughly with warm water. Delatone is pretty expensive. Druggists charge one dollar an ounce, but it is worth it. If the hairs should return they will be thin and almost colorless and another application of delatone will permanently rid you of them. W J G.: Especially at this season of the year N you should be feeling ener getic, full of life and have a good ap petite Even though you do not feel really sick, you should take a good tonic to rid your blood of its impur ities and build up your health and strength generally. Get an ounce of kardene from any drug store and dis solve it with half a rup of sugar In a half pint of alcohol; then add enough hot water to make a full quart. This is a splendid remedy for that run down tired, indifferent feeling you «neak of Take a tablespoonful before each meal and in a short time it will restore your appetite and free your skin from those pimples and liver blotches which now annoy you. Lucy M ' You have made a great mistake In neglecting your hair so long But It is not too late to restore it to its former beauty, even if.it is "falling, scurfy and weak hair," as you call it Regular use of a g«od quinine hair tonic will accomplish wonders.

MAE MARTYN zoln from your druggist, dissolve it in one-half pint of alcohol and add one half pint of water. Rub this tonic into the scalp and hair roots two or three times a week and it will restore your scalp to a healthy condition, feed the hair follicles, giving your hair new life and causing it to grow in thick, long and gloS3y. Your sister will find this same quin.zoin tonic the right and truu remedy for her fading, dull and brittle hair. It will stop the splitting and breaking in ono or two applications, but she should continue its use for several weeks and resume the treat ment whenever her hair requires it. Read answer to Hermione. Hermione: You must get the dan druff off your head. Dandruff is a hair destroyer; it chokes the hair, kills It and- causes It to fall out. Don't use soap for shampooing; soap leaves the scalp dry and hard and streaks the hair. I know of onljj one perfect sham poo, and that is canthrox. All first class druggists sell It. Just dissolve a teaspoonful of canthrox In a cup of hot water; pour on the head a little at a time and rub well—precisely as you would with any other shampoo; then rinse the hair and scalp thoroughly with clean warm water. Canthrox re moves dandruff, and relieves itching scalp. It dries quickly and makes the hair soft, fright and fluffy. For a hair tonic use 'quinzoin—described In tha preceding paragraph. A. B. R.: It has been Indeed a try ing season for even the strongest eyes, and you are only one of thousands who are suffering from sore, red and in flamed eyes. To relieve the Irritation, redness and granulated lids, get an ounce of crystos from your druggist, dissolve It In a pint of water and drop one or two drops in each eye when ever the eyes feel tired, weak or sore. The use of this home-made eye tonic gives brilliance and expression to the eyes, keeping them clear and bright. It is a favorite toilet adjunct with actresses and society women. "Betty:" I don't know who said "Any fool can catch a husband, but It takes a wise woman to keep one" —but It comes pretty near to being: true. For the sake of your present and future happiness, don't neglect your complex lon—don't let your skin become sallow, dark, coarse or rough; don't let It wrinkle or sag. Use this home-mado cream-Jelly for massaging and as a face cream: Got from your druggist one ounce of almozoln, dissolve it In ;i half-pint of cold water, add two tea spooufuls of glycerine, stir well and let stana over night. This is "the cream without grease"—it won't cause hair to grow. Gently massage your face and neck and you will find it acts on thi skin, seeking out the deepest layers, the deepest tissues, the deepest cell*. and there works like Nature work*, thoroughly and surely, for skin health, purity, color and freshness. It not only restores a lost complexion but creates a new one.
