healing Resinol balsams sink right
into the skin, stop itching Instantly
and soon clear away all traces of
eruption, even in severe and stubborn
cases where other treatments have
had no effect. After that the regular
use of Resinol Soap is usually enough
to keep the skin clear and healthy.
You need never hesitate to use
Resinol. It is a doctor's prescription,
that has been used by other phy
sicians for years in the treatment of
all sorts of skin affections. It con

every druggist sells Resinol Ointment
(50c and $1) and Resinol Soap (26c).

New warrants were issued this
morning by Judge Shortall against
Drs. C. K. Holsman and Fred A.
Steele of the Cook museum, 88 Third
street, and Dr. George Morton of
the museum closed by the medical
examiners at 775 Market street. The
new warrants charge the men with
maintaining a nuisance. The old
charges of operating a museum with
out a license were continued for trial
tomorrow morning.
Not a voice was raised ln behalf of
the "museums of anatomy" that have
been put of business by the crusade
of the state board of medical exam-
I iners at the meeting of the police
commission last night-
Louis Ward, attorney for the board,
filed a petition for the revocation of
the license of the Doctor Jordan mu
seum at 986 Market street, operated
by Gideon M. Freeman.
Although the attaches of the mu
seum had been advised of the action
proposed, none raised his head when
Theodore Roche, chairman of the
commission, looked over the room and
asked if anybody had anything to say
about it.
During the week that the petition
for the revocation of the museum li
cense remains on file with the police
commission the quacks will decide
their future definitely.
It is understood there has been a
meeting arranged by the men behind
the museums at which ways and
means will be discussed. If it is de
cided to give up the fight for good
and all, no attempt will be made to
save the Jordan license next Monday.
If the attorneys decide to fight, the
three museums will Join in the battle
against the medical board.

One of the signs of the times is the
lowering of the large ornate signs of
the quack specialists whose gilt let
tered appeals along Market street and
elsewhere downtown for years have
beseeched the unfortunates.
In the wake of the crusading state
board of medical examiners travels a
band of sign shifters. The sign
shifters visited the offices of "M. S.
Chenoweth, M. D.," 718 Market street,
yesterday, and with gentle hands, dis
sected a huge sign and lowered it into
its grave. Then some window wash
ers came and washed the faces of the
windows, cleaning off all the pretty
golden letters.
After the mourners completed their
work at the former office of "Dr." S.
L. Hlgglns, not located at the present
time, they went up Market street to

Half Human Bird Has Line
of Conversation That
Charms Neighbors

No, you are wrong. This is not the
conversation of a driveling idiot or
a flirty husband. It is merely an ex
ample of a conversation that a certain
parrot—a most intelligent parrot—
holds with the entire neighborhood in
the vicinity of the 5500 block ln Mc-
Millan avenue, Oakland, every morn
ing about 10 o'clock and some times
throughout the afternoon.
The bird belongs to Mrs. J. Nelson,
6519 McMillan avenue. It has two
claims to distinction, one being its
inexhaustible vocabulary and the
other a charming ability to hold an
imaginary talk fest over the tele
phone. The parrot —name of no par
ticular interest —is the one big amuse
ment feature of residents in that lo
cality. When Mm. Nelson hangs it
on the back porch for its morning
sun bath it turns loose. About the
same time the housewives of the
neighborhood gather on their back
porches and settle themselves for a
period of enjoyment.
After a few preliminary screeches,
the almost half human bird begins
to abuse central. He hollers his head
off about some fancied wrongs the
operator has done him. Then he calls
for a number In a perfectly clear
voice and starts a flirtation with his
"girl," not always ln the most choice
language of love.
Mrs. Nelson says that "Polly"
picked up his accomplishments by
himself, and she maintains that he
did not learn his slangy terms In
her house.

D. Samuels desire to announce that their store
will remain closed up to and including Christ
mas Eve. We mention this, because it is a rea
son why women should not leave their Christ
mas Shopping until the last moment. Being
closed evenings necessarily means that the hours
of the day will be just so much more rushed,
making it difficult these last few days to give
satisfaction. Early Christmas Shopping makes
everybody concerned more comfortable.
