CUTICURA OINTMENT HEALED BAD SORE ON LIMB "Some time ago I was coming up some steps when the board crushed under me like an egg shell, and my right limb went through to the knee, and scraped he flesh off the bone just inside and below the knee. I neglected it for a day or two, then it began to hurt me pretty badly. I put balsam fir on to draw out the poison, but when I had used it a week, it hurt so badly that I changed to oint ment. That made it smart and burn so badly that I couldn't use it any more, and that was the fourth week after I was hurt. "Then I began to use Cuticura Oint ment for the eore. It stopped hurting Immediately and began healing right away. It was a bad-looking sore be fore Cuticura Ointment healed it, and I suffered so I couldn't sleep from two days after I fell until I began using Cuticura Ointment. "Cuticura Soap is the best soap I ever saw. I have used all kinds of soap for washing my face, and always it would leave my face smarting. I had to keep a lotion to stop the smart, no matter how expensive a soap I used. I find at last in Cuticura Soap a soap that will clean my face and leave no smarting, and I do not have to use any lotion or anything else to ease it. I believe Cuticura Soap is the best soap made."

The arguments are mainly as follows: "There seems every reason why the eleven million Scandinavians of Northern Europe, united by ties of consanguinity, of language, of institu tions, and above all, of common inter ests, should present a united front to the great Powers that hem them in. Two of these Kingdoms have within a century been forced by the rapacity of their neighbors to yield up rich provinces. Russia took Finland away from Sweden, and Prussia forced little Denmark out of Schleswig-Holsteln. There is no guaranty today, save the Jealousy the Powers have of each other, that similar aggressions will not again occur. Denmark is a source of Uneasiness to Germany, whose war experts talk much of the easy path the Danish peninsula and archipelago Would offer to English invaders. It is the pan-German dream that Den mark as well as Holland should be come part of the Empire. As for Rus sia, she is mindful of the fact that but a thin ribbon of Norwegian territory shuts her out of what she greatly ^covets—an ice-free Atlantic port. It must not be forgotten that the west ernmost point of Russia is only about ten miles away from the head of Bals fjord and less than sixty miles in an air line from the important Norwegian port of Tromsoe. So close does Rus sia come to the Atlantic. It is true that all three Kingdoms together could hope to put in the field scarcely more than a quarter of a million soldiers. But the balance of armaments in Eur ope is so delicate that the casting into the scale of even so comparatively small an army might easily save the North from spoliation. Indeed, a Scandinavian alliance would prove too Important a consideration to be ne glected by either of the two hostile camps into which Europe tends to divide. It might even wring from Eu rope a guaranteed neutrality such as protects Holland, Belgium and Switz erland. It is a happy circumstance favoring such an allianoe that the fric tion between Sweden and Norway as a result of the latter's breach of the Union in 1905, has all but entirely subsided. With Denmark for the third side of the triangle, and with a proper appreciation of individual rights and mutual interdependence, the three Scandinavian Kingdoms should be able to hit things off together well.

Selma Lagerlof has taken the lead In raising money for the establishment of a home for aged lady teachers. A fourteen-year old girl died from infantile paralysis at a Stockholm hos pital. This case shows that this mysterious epidemic has not been rooted out yet. A novice on the motorcycle made the streets of Stockholm unsafe a few days ago. At last he ran against a patrolman. Both of them tumbled down on the street, and the patrol man was so badly used that he had to be taken home in an automobile. His uniform was also badly torn. The retail liquor company of Gafle has obtained an official list of the names of all persons in the city who have been arrested for drunkeness several times or who do not properly support their families, and such per sons can not buy liquor from the com pany. The list contains 131 names. About 30 families consisting of 100 persons who were returning from Bra zil, thoroughly disgusted with that country, stopped a while on their way through Stockholm. There they were treated to a pleasant surprise. Prin cess Ingeborg paid them a visit, talk ing with them and making herself familiar with their conditions. The English vessel Success has been claimed to be the oldest sailing vessel in use, being 120 years old. But now it has been proved that Sweden has a sailing vessel 30 years older. The Gota Lejon, a schooner, was built in 1762, and is still engaged in carrying freight. It is owned by Capt. A. Sjo gren, of Borstil. The ship must still be quite strong, for it carries such keavy materials as coal and cement. During the years 1901-1910 the annual receipt of the state railways of Sweden increased from $12,150,000 to $19,440,000. The iron ore shipping alone contributed over $2,000,000 to the increase. The line from Kiruna to the Norwegian boundary will be elec trified in 1914, and in 1915 the ore traffic on that line is expected to give a maximum return. During the years 1913-1922 it is estimated that the in crease will be about $16,000,000. Carl Lindhagen, who brought up the question of a Swedish republic in the second chamber of the riksdag, was the object of a public ovation at a workingmen's mass meeting in Stock holm.

Copenhagen, May 24. With in* pressive ceremony, marked by the presence of four kings, four queens and 2,000 notables from all over Eu rope, in striking contract to the loneli ness and obscurity of his sudden death in Hamburg, the body of the late King Frederik VIII today was laid to rest in Frederik V's chapel at Ros kilde, after lying in state since Mon day in Christiansborg chapel. After brief and simple private funeral serv ices in the chapel, the casket was placed in a hearse and driven through the streets to the railway station, past thousands of silent people with bared heads, and followed by the royal mourners, and foreign representa tives on foot. Surrounded by a vast throng, the casket was placed aboard a special train for Roskilde, the an cient capital of Denmark, twenty miles west of Copenhagen. There the funeral was conducted in the cathedral, the Lutheran primate of ficiating. Thousands of men and women from all over Denmark were at Roskilde and a vast throng stood about the cathedral until the cere monies were over.'' After the funeral services, while the royal mourners, following an ancient custom, threw handfuls of dust toward the casket, the remains of the king were entomb ed in the crypt of Frederick V's chapel where rest the bones of thirty-three Danish monarchs. Great diplomatic importance was attached to the meet ing at the king's funeral of the three Scandinavian kings, Christian of Den mark, Haakon of Norway, and Gustaf of Sweden. It was the first time in 1,000 years that the three Scandina vian monarchs met on friendly terms. Other royalties in attendance at the funeral included King George of Greece, the dead king's brother: Dowager Queen Alexandra of Great Britain, a sister the Dowager Em press Dagmar of Russia, a sister Queen Maud of Norway Archduke Peter Ferdinand of Austria the Duke of Genoa, Italy the Infante Don Carlos, Spain, and many others. The presence of Queen Louise, widow of the dead king, and Queen Alexandrine, wife of the new king, made four I queens, besides a dowager queen and a dowager empress, who attended the funeral. The service, which lasted an hour, was impressive, the feature be ing the hymns and anthems sung by signers connected with the royal opera, and a special "Farewell" by the noted Danish composer, P. E. Lange Moeller. The cathedral was draped in black and white and the coffin rest ed on a high catafalque beneath black canopy. a NORWAY. Semen are scarce in Hangesund.

Prof. Magnus Olsen has succeeded in translating the inscription of an old rune-stone found at Nord-huglen, Stord. The inscription reads thus: "I, Gudinga, cannot be molested by Gaud." The lost word is etymologi cally connected with Gud, the English God. But Gaud was looked upon as a thing rather than a personal God. The construction work on the state railways is partly tied up by a strike. The men asked for a raise of about 40 per cent, and they also asked the government to "negotiate" with the labor union. The storthing easily came to the conclusion that the state can not "negotiate" with labor unions. The state hires work as cheaply as pos sible. If the strikers succeed in stop- I ping the work for some length of time the government can do but one thing, namely, raise the appropria tions 40 per cent to have the same amount of work done. The plans call I for $15,120,000 up to the year 1923. and this amount may have to be rais ed to $21,330,000. The steamer Snorre, which was owned by parties in Bergen, was des- I trcyed by an explosion off Kullen, Sweden. The crew consisted of 13 men, 8 of whom were drowned. The vessel sank in the course of one minute. One of the survivors e.t plained the accident. He had seen signs of rats in the cabin hall and lighted a match to look more close ly. As he stooped down to the rat: hole the gas which was pouring out took fire, and the explosion that fol lowed was strong enough to blow up the vessel. He heard the captain shout that there was not time for putting the life-boats into the water. The five men that were saved clung to some planks, and they were picked up by another steamer, 20 minutes after the explosion. A silver medal has been awarded to Kristian Holt, sexton of the Uranien borg church, Kristiania, on account of long and faithful public service. He was a teacher in the city schools from 1859 to 1890. and since that date he has occupied his present position. He also taught a Sunday school for 29 years, and has been one of the pillars of a girls' training school.

A paper bag cooked luncheon, with bridge to follow, or an afternoon col lation prepared in the paper bags and served after the game, will provide a new note in social hospitality. With a large party it is not wise to undertake individual bag cooking. Better have bags for each tableful, limiting the tables to playing size. The two menus here £iven are .ad justable either to luncheon, afternoon collations or late suppers. Claret punch, Sauterne cup, or tea-lemonade should be served with each, winding up with black coffee or chocolate made with a little brandy and very lightly sweetened. Salted nuts, olives and radisheB are also served, either together or separate at the discretion of the hostess. Diamonds of Chicken on Toast Green Peas Sliced Potatoes Hot Biscuit Fruit Endive Salad Sherry Dressing Asparagus with Cheese Cheese Cakes Sliced Marble or Spice Cake Nuts Raisins Crystallized Fruit Diamonds of chicken are on the sur face extravagant, but less so than they seem, for the rest of the chicken need not go to waste. The diamonds are the breast cut in half lengthwise, boned, trimmed, and flattened, but not mashed. They are very well but tered, lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, have a sliced mushroom laid on top, and are wrapped in thin sliced bacon, then cooked in a well buttered bag about twenty minutes. While they cook get read thin diamonds of toast. Cut it from stale bread and make as crisp as possible. Butter lib erally, and keep very hot without scorching. Lay a chicken diamond on each piece of toast and keep all hot while you add to the gravy in the bag, which must be poured into a small saucepan, minced olives, minced celery,, a little lemon juice, a lump of butter rolled very lightly in flour, and' the lightest sprinkle of powdered sweet herbs. Cook over l"ot water till well mixed, then add a spoonful or so of cream, stir it well through, and finish with a spoonful or so of sherry. Do not cook after the wine Is in. Pour the.sauce equally over the dia monds and send to table very hot. Green peas and sliced potatoes have been heretofore ascribed. Make your biscuit very tiny, also very short and light. For the salad cut up French endive in inch lengths, along with peeled high flavored apples and heart celery. Mix all well together, put heaping spoonfuls upon crisp lettuce leaves and garnish with celery tips and strings of pimento. Pour over a dressing made from three tablespoon fuls best oil, one tablespoonful lemon juice, one tablespoonful sherry, half a teaspoonful of sugar, a pinch of salt, red and black pepper to taste and a few drops of tobasco or chili vinegar. Mix the dry ingredients well, r.dd the lemon Juice, beat smooth, then put in the tobasco. Then add alternately the oil and sherry, beating in each portion well before add another. What follows sounds simple, yet may turn out more troublesome: Savory Mouthfuls Sweet Potato Straws Celery Hearts Mushrooms Stewed in Cream Apple Brown Bread Sandwiches Sliced Cake in Variety Fruit Nuts Bon-Bons For the savory mouthfuls first make a good puff paste, roll it very thin, then cut neatly Into small squares— say three inches across. Tut upon the squares several sorts of filling— cooked chicken minced with olives and seasoned with meltel butter and lemon Juice, or cream e.nd sherry ham shaved as thin as possible, then cut across and mixed with finely minced cucumber pickle salmon freed of skin and bone, drained, high ly seasoned with lemon juice, or tar ragon, salt and pepper, or lean roast mutton, mince and mixed with cur rant Jelly, melted in a little claret or vinegar. Anything tasty and easily handled will suffice. Use only a bit of filling, fold over the paste, pinch Pudding a la Mayence: Rub half a pint of breadcrumbs through a flne Puddings of Degree By Nicolas Soyer, Chef Pudding a la Baronne: Take half a pound of well-washed, dried and picked currants, half a pound sultana raisins, half a pound of breadcrumbs, an ounce of chopped citron and four tablespoonfuls of golden syrup. Mix all well together, then add an ounce of self-raising fiour and the well beaten yolks of two eggs, mixed with a pint of milk. Beat all well together and finally add the whites of the eggs, whipped to a firm froth. Fill with this a well-greased paper souffle dish, place carefully In a bag and bake in oven for an Hour and a half. Turn out carefully and serve with a little heated golden syrup poured over and around it. tight and bake, keeping the triangle as true as possible. Serve either hot or cold. Sweet potato straws are better hot Cut potatoes in slices lengthwise, peel, then cut the slices into straws— they should be less than a quarter inch each way. Dip in melted butter or bacon tat and cook inside a greas ed bag ten to fifteen minutes. Take up, let cool partially, lay on clean pa per to absorb any grease, then sprinkle lightly with fine salt, and set again in a hot but fireless oven. Peel the mushrooms and cut' away the stalks, but do not wash unless they show dirt. Put them in a thickly buttered bag with half a gill of cream to the poupd, a lump of butter rolled in flour and a very little cold water, say half a spoonful. Seal, put in hot oven for five minutes, slack heat, and cook fifteen minutes longer. Take up in a hot deep dish, add a wineglass of sherry, stirring it in lightly, then dust with pepper and serve very hot. To make the sandwiches, mince fine or scrape highly flavored apples, mix with a little sweet French dressing, made with lemon Juice instead of vinegar, and spread between thinly buttered brown bread. PUDDINGS CAN BE BOILED IN PAPER BAGS. It is not beyond paper bags to boll things, especially puddings. They must be put in thin molds with tight fitting tops, the molds filled only two thirds—even a little less for some sorts. After the tops are on tight the molds must be set in a lightly greased bag, which has been gently flattened at the bottom BO as not to break it, and reinforced along the seam with thick paste, which has been allowed to dry before using. After the pudding is in the bag, the mold standing upright, pour in enough cold water to come three parts up the sides, fold and clip the bag, set it on trivet with feet an inch high, and put the-trivet upon the bottom of the oven. Have the oven hot, keep it so for ten minutes, then slack heat half and cook as long as necessary. Here follow sundry receipts for puddings adapted to this paper bag boiling, along with a caution—pastry for boiling is better shortened with finely minced suet than with either butter or lard. Place of honor for the Wilson plum pudding—the lady of the president's plum cake can not be too much re ferred to. She says: "Mix one cup of sugar, one cup of butter, six eggs beat en separately, four cups of flour browned, one cup of sweet milk, one half cup jelly, one half cup of mo lasses, one-half pound suet chopped fine, two pounds of raisins, cut and floured, one cup of cherry preserves, three ounces of citron cut fine, one teaspoonful each of cinnamon and cloves, one nutmeg grated. Put in well greased small molds, or square coffee cans, leaving room to rise, use lard for greasing, boil five to six hours when done remove from molds or cans, wrap in oiled paper, and place In cake box till needed, then steam until hot through, then serve with sauce." For peach pudding make a square mold of paper bag paper, clipping the folded corners very weh, grease it thickly, and put level over the bottom a pint can of peaches, the very best, drained of all syrup. Pou upon them a rich custard made with two curs of crumbled cake, half a cup of sugar, a scant cup of rich, new milk, four eggs beaten very light and either a large wineglass of sherry or the juice oil a lemon. Strew a few sultana.-, or macaroon crumbs on top, slip in an other bag very well greased, seal, and bake at slow heat about an hour. For chocolate pudding put a quart of milk in a double boiler with a very little salt, and when it is hot stir into it four ounces of grated chocolate and a large cup of sugar. Mix two table spoonfuls of cornstarch smooth in a little cold milk, add it-to the choco late mixture, stir very well, then put in the beaten yolks of three eggs, stir hard, flavor with vanilla, pour into a thin mold and cook inside a greased bag for seven to ten minutes. Cut open the bag top, remove it, and cover the pudding with the egg-whites beat en stiff with half a cup of powdered sugar. Pile them up in the middle, strew lightly with grated chocolate or minced nuts, ana set back in the oven till of a light brown. Cook at quick heat, but after putting on the meringue reduce heat more than half. Apple tapioca pudding bakes beauti fully in a paper bag. You can use a mold, either tin or paper, or put the cored apples directly in the bottom of the bag, filling the core spaces with sugar and butter, then pouring the soaked tapioca over them.

AFTER THE GRIP PURIFYTHE BLOOD Dr. Williams* Pink Pills Are tho Best Blood Builder and Will Cure You as They Cured This Woman. It is of the utmost importance to you* health, if you have suffered from the grip, that you cleanse the blood of the angering germs and put it in condition to resist disease. After the acute attack the sufferer is left with a debilitated system, is short of breath upon the slightest exertion and is affected by every change of weather. The system is in such a weakened con dition that it is powerless to resist the attack of such diseases as pneumonia and bronchitis. This is a condition which emphati cally calls for a tonic for the blooa. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the best medi cine for this purpose for they act di rectly on the blooa which they cleanse of all impurities. They tone up the nerves ana give health and strength to the debilitated system. The debility which follows an attack of the grip can only be cured by mak ing the blood, rich and red. This Dr. Williams' Pink Pills never fail to do promptly and it explains how they cured Mrs. F. R. Boyd, of No. 607 South Ninth street, Minneapolis, Minn. She says: "I was never well after an attack of the grip a few years ago until I took Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Before this I had found nothing that helped me. I was all run down, pale and thin. My appe tite was poor and my head ached con tinually. I didn't feel like myself at all. "Someone finally recommended Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to me and I found them just the medicine for my case. They gave me a hearty appetite and a good, clear color. I got back my vital ity and was soon a well woman. I can safely say that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will do all that is claimed for them. I heartily recommend them." If you are suffering from after-effects of the grip or other wasting disease, try the remedy that has cured so many stubborn cases, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
