Whatever one may Ihink of pater nalism in government, no one can examine this pamphlet without welcom ing heartily this form of governmental maternalisni. The pamphlet might well be called "When a Child Js Horn." It does not, of course, take the place of physician or nurse, but, on the contrary, enables the mother to co-ojicrute intelligently with both. The wide circulation of this pamphlet can also serve a useful purpose in giving the American people a definite idea, at least in part, of what the children's bureau really is, and how intimately this new arm of the government touches the lives of the people. The bureau has to do with all the children of America. Send for the monograph and see for yourself. Jt is a handv reference book, having glossary and index.

Many a man doing hard labor Tias gone years without ' a full bath and without injury to his health. It is only in recent years that baths were to be had by the masses. The man who works hard per spires much and his skin is cleansed in the process. It is well enough to reflect that the skin may be kept immaculate and the body be reeking with wate matter within because of faulty elimina tion of food and tissue waste. In this case the working man with the odor of dried sweat about him may have a more wholesome and clean body than the dainty lady with her daily tub and all the elegant accesories of per- fumed soaps, powders and lotions. Too much bathing may be injurious to some extent. Nature provides n certain amount of oiliness in the skin that keeps it soft and helps to pro tect against excesses of either heat or cold. Daily soaping and hard rubbing afterward of the body remove too much and is a faulty habit of life. community. Within twenty-four hours, however, the old temptation overcame him.

There are very few for eign waiters who claim to have been noblemen in their own country and descend ants from old and noble families who will not accept a tip. I was at one time connected with the Waldorf-Astoria in New York and other large hotels in this country. I have seen a great many foreign waiters who claim to be members of old and noble families, but never have I seen one of these fellows refuse a quarter as a tip. They will tell you about their distinguished ancestors and the old and historic castles that their families are occupying in Europe, but if you don't tip when you have finished your meal the chances are you will go hungry' if they ever get a chance to wait upon you again. There are any number of good foreign waiters that.claim to be noble men. You can generally size them up by the amount of dignity they put on. Nothing less than a 25-eent tip will go with these fellows. If they "think you are easy they will tell you enough about their noble family to make your head swim, but look out if you neglect to tip them, for they will haVc you on their blacklist. They wul even go further and tell the other noblemen who are wait ing in the hotel about you. flflflfi Kfffrffti ffi Hi I A l!W';L"ffi h !i ill A ' TA " i i rr i 1..., ri i n ii a iw'v iL(,t ' II Kit fl! j II 1 W V jX.-V VII U I II U II 1- h 523sL In the giddy waltze, saw her with Bel lew, and, like a forlorn waif shut out of paradise, he Btole away to his low ly studio. Alden was little aware of the grand climax to all the hopes of Bellew that transpired within the following hour. A stray remark concerning the writ ings of Mr. Eccles had led to Elida referring with some appreciation to home talent "We have also a poet and author within our modest circle, Mr. Eccles," she remarked. "Indeed," spoke Mr. Eccles. "I have a scrap book with his fu gitive pieces in the library," explained Elida and they strolled thither. Mr. Eccles gave a great start of sur prise as he looked over the dozen or more poems and articles which Elida had proudly preserved. She noted his emotion and regarded him questioningly, but he - was too courteous to explain then and there. He smiled as he said: "Miss Tresham, may I have the pleasure of sending you my own little volume of desultory writings?" "Oh, surely," she replied, and the book arrived by messenger next morn ing. At 11 o'clock Duke Bellew called to inquire after the lady of his choice. He was not admitted. Instead, the servant handed him the Eccles vol ume, and looking it over he realized that his imposture was ended. By some strange coincidence the fool of Roy Borden had copied his lit erary selections from a volume com paratively unknown in America. Word for word they tallied to tho original work of the visiting foreigner. Bellew vanished into obscurity. There were some embarrassed lights of society at the discovery of the im posture.

And her appreciation of his sterling worth and sure affection showed in her blushing face, and Alden Hope knew that he was loved. (Copyright, 1914, by W. G.

Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea and Sulphur, properly compound ed, brings back the natural color' and lustre to the hair when faded, streaked or gray; also ends dandruff, itching scaln and stop6 falling hair. Years ago the only way to get this mixture was to make it at home, which is mussy and troublesome. Nowadays, by asking at any store for "Wyeth's Sago and Sulphur Hair Remedy," you will get a large bottle of this famous old recipe for about 50 cents. Don't stay gray! Try it! No one can possibly tell that you darkened your hair, as it does it so naturally and evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning the gray hair disappears, and after another ap plication or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, thick and glossy. Adv, Amusing Truth. Tlie late Frank Simmons, the fa mous American sculptor who recently died in Koine, was an exponent of the frank, naturalistic method. "How much more annming the true is than the ideal," he said one day in his studio to a correspondent. "Take the case of the little girl. "'.My dear," the little girl's mother said, 'don't you think you're getting too old to pluy with boys?' "The little girl frowned in scornful astonishment. "'Why, no, mamma!' she cried im patiently. 'The older I get the better I like 'em.' " Corporation Footballs. Mayor Mitchel of New Y'ork was praising a commuter1 who, by continual complaints, had improved the railway service of his district. "We are apt to call the kicker a crank and a nuisance," said Mr. Mit chel, "but it's the kickv who gets things done for the community." He smiled and ended: "They who never kick are but too apt to become footballs." His Grfevance. The court of appeal has finally de cided against Mr. George Gray, the well-known actor, in the action brought against him by Miss Marie Corelll for infringing the copyright of her novel, "Temporal Power," in his sketch, "The People's King." If Miss Corelli has a large circle o' leaders who admire her books, there is also a number of people who do not. Two men belonging to the op t rr-f l u ..... 1 posng tramps, wgr 5"vn -H1 nalists. were discussing her the other day.
