Make Needed Repairs

BIG IMMIGRATION FROM
GERMANY IS PREDICTED
Development Board Representa
tive at Turin Returns
OAKLAND, May 6—W. D. Spencer
has returned from a year's absence in
charge of the exhibits of the California
development board at the international
exposition in Turin, Italy. The ex
hibit contained a number of Alameda
county products prepared by the Ala
meda county general exposition com
mission. Figures given by Spencer
show a remarkable attendance at the
exposition, and the returned delegate
states that the display of local products
excited much interest. From Turin
the exhibit was taken to Berlin, where
it was on exhibition for four months.
The interest exhibited by Germans was
remarkable, and it is the opinion of
Spencer, judging from the questions
asked regarding California, that a large
immigration may be expected from the
agricultural districts of Germany.

Much for Her

perament was too much for Mrs. Borg
hild Rader and she got an interlocu

their honeymoon. Mrs. Rader said, he
was taken with other women and very
shortly after they had settled for a
time at Philadelphia he began receiv
ing letters and postcards from them.
Rader was indifferent toward her for
days at a time, after lavishing atention

vals. The artistic* spirit manifested it
self in blows. Mrs. Radter testified, and

wa.s soundly slapped by her husband.
Outside help was once called when she
feared for her life and Rader was very
penitent fora few hours.
Mrs. Rader left her husband on no
less than five occasions, always return
ing when he promised to be good and
cherish her again as he had vowed.

cided as her last resource. He had, she
said, told her to go as he had another
girl in view.
Mrs, Rader is 19 years of age and
her husband is not more than two
years older. He is a son of Rev. Wil
liam Rader of San Francisco.

Bloom of Youth
Now Easily Attained
(From Popular Science)
You no longer need to "doctor" that
sallow, freckled, blackhead, rough,
blotchy, pimply or over-red skin. You
can remove it, instead—easily, pain
lessly, inexpensively. By a new scien
tific process, which any one can use
without assistance, the dead and near
dead surface skin, with all Its imper
fections, is gently, gradually absorbed
—and a radiantly youthful and beauti
ful complexion comes forth! Go to
your druggist, get an ounce of pure
mercollzed wax at night apply enough
of thia to completely cover the face;
don't rub It In. Next morning remove
I the-wax with warn, water. The result
: after a few days is astonishing. You
wonder why thia secret wasn't dis
covered long ago.
Let the wrin*l«d. pouchy-cheeked
double-chinned folks also take hope.
I Put an ounce of powdered saxolite into
! a half pint witch hazel, bathe the face
1 in the solution and —say!—there's noth
i lng that will so effectually, so prompt
! ly. smooth out the hateful lines and
draw in the sags and bags. You'll find
, this lotion, as well as mercollsed wax,
' works equally well on neck and hand*.

HEADS GOOD BILL
Actress Appears in Dramatic
Sketch in Role of Indian
Maiden
OAKLAND. May 6.—Blanche Walsh
is" star at the Oakland Orpbeum
this week. Her move Into vaudeville
from the legitimate, where she has
made her name famous, is decidedly
Impressive. The vehicle for Miss
Walsh's debut in vaudeville is an in
tensely dramatic Indian sketch called
"The Thunder Gods."* in which the star
assumes the part of an Indian maid,
"Blue Jay."
Diametrically opposed to the dra
matic offering of Miss Walsh was the
act of Edward Blondell, a comedian
who appears as a country lad and
throws a world of hilarity into the part.
Gertrude Van Dyke, the girl with a
double voice, makes a big hit. She ap
pears with two male entertainers, one
a pianist and the other a singer. ,
"Fear," a dramatic story of the
southwest, grips the attention of the
audience. It is neatly written and
compact, and is presented by a capa
ble cast.
"The Smuggler" Is a tale of the com
plications resulting from a society
woman's attempt at smuggling. The
skit Is lively and well played by Miss
Dorothy Dalton and her company.
