Heart Problems Dear Mrs. Thompson: About two years ago I had a girl friend that 1 thought the world of and she seemed to like me right well. One day 1 was sent to prison on a false charge and I never had a chance to tell her why or where I had gone. ' During my absence . she learned from a girl friend where I was and upon my return fourteen months af terward having been found not guilty I was disappointed to hear that she was married. She either did not care for me or else upon' hearing where I was she might have thought me not worthy of her. I suspect it was the former. I met her on the street and she said she did not believe what her friend had said about me. Which do you think, and what should I do? Since I feel as though I can love no other girl than her. I am not very popular with the girls as I work every day and people think wrong of me since being where I was although I know it was not my fault. SAD HEARTED. I think that the girl did not care for you as . deeply as she, seemed to or she would have trusted you and not married some one else. I am sure that there is some other girl whom you will care for There is nothing that you can do now in re gard to the other girl. Mayor May Remove Gasoline Stations "The gasoline filling stations on the sidewalks in front of the garages are causing too much trouble and will con tinue to cause trouble as long as they stay . there," Mayor Zimmerman said this morning, "and I will probably order them removed from the side walk in the next few weeks."

How to Look Years Less Than Your Age The most aped face wflt look years rminit'r after the use of ordinary merco led wax for from ten days to two weeks. This remarkable substance, because of Its peculiar absorptive power, actually re moves the thin veil of faded or withered outer cuticle, a little at a time. Gradually the fresher, more youthful skin underneath In revealed. This absorption process being a purely hysrtcnlc one, an entirely natural complexion is acquired quite different from the artificial complexion, which ap pears anything but girlish, though often bearing painful evidence of childishness. An ounce of mercolired wax, obtainable at any drug store, is sufficient to rejuvenate any complexion. It ts put on like cold cream at bedtime, and removed mornings with warm water. To eradicate such age marks as wrinkles .and furrows, make a wash lotion by dis solving an ounce of powdered saxolite In a half pint of witch hazel. This has won derful astringent and tonic properties. It quickly effaces all kinds of wrinkles, no matter how caused, making the skin firm, smooth and young looking. Yanks Betting 3-1 Will be That War Over by Christmas The pleasure that comes to the boys overseas when they meet a former "pal" is expressed in a letter recently received from . Private Stanley C.

"I have been operating a typewriter for "four months now,' fourteen and a half hours a day. But I have only a few more days of that and then It will only be seven hours a day. "Kenneth Toler has been away from here about five weeks now ; he is now up at the front I am about 400 miles from the front; however, about three months ago I was only a short dis tance away, and could see the air planes and hear the guns very plainly. I was there only about one week, and am now fifty miles from the coast and about seventy-five miles from Spain. The next time I go to town will send you a book of views of the big place we are near. Kenneth sent one to his . people. When we go into town for a walk we get two fellow s - that understand French to go with us and then we are always sure to get in with some French family who will take us in; feed us, and teach us a little French. I do not know whether or not I told you about going to a private home in England. I will tell you about it anyway. Dean Seidel and I walked over into a town. We were camped near it; it was about the size of Richmond, and were sitting on the post office steps. We noticed a man standing near us who seemed to be watching us Intently and finally he came over and asked us if we had a moment to spare. We said we were just resting, and he asked if we would mind step ping around the corner just five min utes walk, and have a cup of coffee. We thought that he might be a Ger man spy, but went along anyway. We walked about six or seven blocks un til we came to a row of nice houses. In front of one of these be stopped, and said it was where he lived. His wife and daughter met us at the door and took our hats and coats, after wards inviting us into the living room. We bad a very pleasant chat. The lady seemed to be evry well educated and knew a great deal about the states. It seems she had always wanted to talk to some American sol diers and this was ber first chance. We chatted until about 5:30, and they asked us to stay for tea. We both quickly decided to stay as it was the first time we had had our feet under a table with a white table cloth on it and with plates, cups, saucers,' etc., since we had left home at 7:4$ a. m., Thursday, March 6, 1918. After sup per we had another chat and finally had to leave in order to get back to camp before taps. They invited us to return on-the following Wednesday when the lady's niece and a friend would play the piano and violin tor us, but we had orders to move on that day so missed the treat. "The war can't last much longer for we have Bulgaria now. We will have Turkey for Christmas, and . by that time Austria will be Hung--ria. Ha! Ha! The war sure does look. good. They are betting 3-1 over here that it will be over by Christmas. - "The French people seem exceeding ly nice, and can't do enough for us. "I have not seen any corn over here, but they certainly do have lots of grapes. I think I have eaten a bushel in the last week. We have been getting some roasted chestnuts too, and they are fine. Just outside camp there is a little town called Stringtown ; we can buy a good many things there.

Recent ' experiments have demon strated the degree of sensitiveness that plants exhibit toward light. ' r It Pays to Buy the Best But every housewife should remem ber that the best is not aways the highest priced. Experience has taught me that you can't always judge quality by the cost sign. That is particularly true of baking powder. Baking powder quality can be de termined only by bake day results. The baking powder that serves you best regardless of what you pay- is the best to buy and use. I have made a close study and care ful investigation of baking powder, because it is unquestionably one of the most important of baking ma terials. It effects all ingredients employed with it. . No woman, no matter how careful her selection of flour, sugar, eggs, etc., can employ the limit of baking economy if she uses a poorly made, wasteful baking powder. Merit, not money? is the only safe basis upon which to estimate the worth of a baking powder. Fortunately the housewife no longer has to conduct costly experiments of her own to determine just which particular brand is the most efficient and economical. Experts like myself, make a business of testing baking powders and accurately arriving at their actual value. We make no mistakes in our decisions as our experiments are made along strictly scientific lines. Millions of women are now profit ing by the aid offered by domestic scientists. I know this to be true as choice is now centered on the brand of baking powder that I and other domestic scientists have found superior through both chemical and oven tests. It is becoming more popular every day. Its tremendous sales increase was not influenced in the least by cost. It is a moderate priced baking powder. Costs considerably less than some other brands. Still it it preferred by women who could and would pay more were it possible to secure the desired 'quality. They don't buy this brand of baking powder because of a saving of cost but because of its demonstrated superiority. To them it means the greatest quality value the greatest purity and greatest certainty of results that can be had at any price. Decidedly- the best, not because of moderate price, but because' of its unimprovable merit. In justice to those who read this article that they may share in "the savings and baking success assured by the biggest selling and recognized superior baking powder it is no more than fair that I give publicity to the brand preferred alike by experts sad America's millions of housewives Calumet Baking Prwdtr. It is not necessary to shampoo your hair so frequently if it is entirely and properly cleansed each time by the use of a really good shampoo.
