New oYrk. Fob. 25. Did the child
welfare exhibit accomplish any good?
Thousunds of mothers visited it and
Hudled the exhibits thut had been pre
imrpd with no much expense nnd trou
ble for their enlightenment, but now
thut the doors are closed, the projec
tors are wonedring If they did any
thing more than provide an Interest
ing show at whlrn the spectators ex
claimed and forgot.
"If any exhibit did anything toward
bringing about a better comfort and
beauty for chlldcn that of the com
mittee on the economics of clothing
did so," said one of the committee.
It was one of the most popular and
practical of them all, and one of the
most carefully studied. For all moth
ers may not realize the seriousness
of the diet problem, nor take an in
terest In the legal problems of the
young, every one of them worries ov
er the question of shoes for Johnnie
and plans how to make a pretty and
serviceable dress for Mary, even when
there Is nothing In the family purse
to provide the wherewithal."
On a long table were placed outfits
for children from one year to sixteen,
with every garment completed, so
that a mother can sco just what can
bate procured for the sum tho commit
tee set apart for It. The cost of the
outfit Is computed when bought ready
made and when done at home.
! "There Is no doubt that well made
clothing from home lust much better
than store clothing," said Mrs. Mary
Woolmnn. "but wen the woman sews
sloppily it is worse. In many cases
woman Is employed und can not give
the time for the home work, so ready
Tnadn clothing is a necessity."
Studying the Clothing Situation.
The clothing committee studied the
situation from tho following stand
joints: First, tho economic or the
correct use of the income for clothing
and tho elimination of unnecessary ar
ticles: second, tho textile, considering
the strength, cost, valuo of different
materials, with tests by laundering,
sunlight und heat; third, the hygenie,
to decide quest Ions of weight and tho
effect of budly shaped garments and
the substitution of cotton for wool,
mado necessary by tho advanced cost
of wool; 'and. lant, that or good taste,
or such harmony of color and form
possible when such a limited amount
of money Is to be spent.
A largo placard there said: "The
least cost of reasonably clothing three
children for a year $45, when they. are
under six. $60 when the are between
six and fourteen. But time and skll
fulbuying are required and real com
fort can hardly be obtained, at this
"On an income of $S00 only $42 can
bo spent for clothes," Chapin says In

are today this will not do. This looks
as if $900 were the least self-supporting
wage for a family of five in New
The little garments Svhlch were laid
on the tablo were many of them made
by girls of the training schools, and
they are exqulsetly neat and well-fin
ished. There were bits of lace whip
ped on and fancy stitches which cost
nothing except time to redeem them
from their plainness. And everything
was there, from little pairs of gar
ters to hankies. The budget stipulat
es that every coat must be made to
wear two years, which divides the

Mountain Woman Writes in Praise
of Newbro's Herpicide.
"For several years I have been
troubled with dandruff, causing me
much annoyance, and my hair became
very thin. I have used Newbro's Her
picide for a month and the dandruff
bus entirely disappeared and my hair
Is becoming much heavier than for
merly. New hair is growing where
there was none and I am very thank
ful to you for the benefit I have re
ceived from Newbro's Herpicide.

Bar City, Mich., Feb. 25. From
"Lower Saginaw" in 1S36 to White
chapel road, London, in 1910, is a far
cry and just how an old "wildcat" note
issued by the Saginaw County Bank of
Lower Saginaw, in that year, could be
picked up nearly three-quarters of a
century later on a busy London thor
oughfare is a mystery which is only
partly solved by a letter received in
the local postoffice a few days ago and
turned over to M. M. Andrews, cash
ier of the Old Second National Bank.
The letter came from William Rog
er Miller, who gives his address as
Houseditch, E. C. London, and is ad
dressed to "Managing Director. Sagi
naw County Bank of Lower Saginaw."
The letter states that the writer
found the note along the Whitechapel
into circulation, no doubt, and this
note is probably one of them. The
bank never did business as the period
of "wildcat banks was over before
another batch of money could be se
cured from the printers.
The bill received from Mr. Miller is
so far as known the only one of the
kind now in existence, and cashier
Andrews values it highly as a souven
ir. He will correspond with the find
er, who will undoubtedly be suitably
rewarded from his trouble.
