BEAUTY OF JAPAN
DEPENDS ON SPOTS
Henry Payot Lectures on Land
of Nippon
That the beauty of Japan depended
solely upon certain spots amid a gen
erally barren land and that one seem
ingly grazed through the small end of
a telescope -when visiting the country,
was the impressive argument of Henry
Payot Friday evening in a lecture on
th<? Japanese given before the Char
ming Auxiliary in the First Unitarian
church, corner of Franklin and Geary
streets.
Payot dwelt at length upon the
strange customs of the Nipponese, il
lustrating his'mort salient points with
many stereopttcon views. Throughout
the lecture he compared the ways of
Nippon with American ways and termed
tii* land of dwarfed art, "'topsy-turvy.''
In speaking of the Japanese women
.he stated that they received but scant
consideration from their husbands, who
held the gentler sex in contempt for
tlie most part.
Concerning the beauties of Japan he
Jai.l much stress upon the different
flower fet^s and . showed upon the
screen sr>v<>ral remarkably colored
slide.*. > Although Payot declared the
Japanese wonderful in many respects
and rhara«:torized them as highly imi
tative in most tilings he remarked that
•Jh- race had. aped the Kuropean cus
toms in a whimsical fancy pleasing
:nan:iPT\ absolutely neglecting the es
sentials which meant public health.

ALCAZAR FAVORITE
IS REINTRODUCED
Burt-Wesner Returns to Fill an
Important Role in "All on
Account of Eliza"
faeo Ditrichstein's mirth provoking
comedy, "All on Account of Eliza,"
will be the Alcazar's offering this week.
It "was selected to reintroduce ; -Burt
Wesner to the patrons of the Sutter
street playhouse, with whom he was a
prime favorite for two years prior to
the close of the last season. He will
have tlie role of Franz Hochstuhl, the
funny German character created by
Louis Mann, and Alcazar - "regulars"
may expert a treat.
"All on Account of Eliza" deals with
ihe fortunes of a city schoolmarm in a
rural community, whore the narrow
mindedness of tlie women folk is deep
rooted. They are shocked by the lib
eral ideas and easy, though, innocent,
behavior of the pretty young woman,
and when all the men and children in
the village fall in love with her the
wives and mothers combine to have
her dismissed. She is arraigned be
fore the school board on charges of im
morality, but triumphantly clears her
good name and is retained in her posi
tion. She does not pique the ladies
very long, however, for the son of the
school board's president makes her his
wife.
It is a simple plot, but the comedy
is incessant from start to finish. As
president of the school board Wesner
wHI have abundant opportunity to
show his fun making ability.
Evelyn Vaughan will have the part
of Miss Elizabeth Carter, the fair cause
of all the trouble, and John Ince will be
seen as her young lover, Walter Hoch
stuhl. Conspicuous among the village
busybodies will be Bessie Barriscale as
Miss Sallie Lennon, Grace Travers as
the postmistress, Adele Belgarde as
Mrs. Tabitha Kaskins, Christie Mac-
Lean as Mrs. HochstuhTs house keeper
and Will R. Walling as the hotel pjro
,
The comedy will run one week "and
Is to be followed by "Alice of Old Vin
tennes." the pretty play of colonial
times.

YOU NEED NOT BE BALD
How to Stop Dandruff and Gire >*eir
Life to Tour Hair.
Of all nourishing: tonics that give life
and vitality to the follicles and roots
of the hair none Is more widely used,
says Mmp. Maree In "Modiste," than the
Beta Quinol tonic— perhaps because it
can be made at home at small cost.
There is no excuse for- dandruff — no
excuse for dull colored and dry hair —
no excuse for falling hair— no excuse
for at least half the bald heads you
see. A good hair tonic used once or
twice a week will prevent dandruff, in-
vigorate the hair follicles and keep the
hair beautiful, abundant and glossy. .
Just get from your druggist one ounce
of beta quinol and one-half pint of
alcohol, mix with one-half pint of warm
water. Or put the ounce of beta quinol
In a pint of bay rum. Either method
of mixing will please you. for it Is the
beta quinol that keeps the scalp healtHy
and puts new 4ife into the hair.
