How She Discarded
How often I exclaimed as I beheld my
ugly complexion in the mirror, "If I only
could tear off this old kln!" Andj do you
know, rve learned how to do that very
thine? Not to actually remove the entire
akin all of a sudden; that would be too
heroic a method and painful, too. I Imagine.
Tha worn-out cuticle comes .off in such
tiny particles, and so gradually requiring
about ten days to complete the transforma
tion It doesn't hurt a bit Day by day the
beautiful complexion underneath comes
forth. Marvelous! No matter how muddy,
rough, blotchy or aged your complexion, you
can surely discard it by this simple process.
Just get an ounce of ordinary mercolised
wax at your druggist's, apply nightly like
cold cream, washing It off mornings.
My wrinkles I got rid of by an equally
simple method. By dissolving an ounce of
powdeed saxollte In a half-pint witch hazel
and bathing my face in the solution, every
line completely disappeared. First the finer
lines, finally even the lep crow's feet
vanished entirely Mona Morrow In Town

Workmen's compensation and com

proved to be the most interesting sub
wtV hroueht up on the floor of the
mfnfng conSgress The sentiment among
the Tdflegatls was that mine operators
at this time are grossly imposed upon.
It was agreed that the time has come

One highly important result of the
convention has been to start a move
ment for the organization of an Ari
zona chapter of the congress. A meet

and a committee on organization was
aDPOinted, composed of the following
members: B. Brltton Gottsberger,

Arizona's mine inspection law was
praised and the compulsory compen
sation act and the eight hour law
were severely criticised by Walter
Douglas, of Blsbee, In an address.
In speaking of the mine inspection
law. Mr. Douglas said:
"Instead of being a detriment. It has
become a positive benefit in that Jt
has kept the management in close
touch with underground conditions
through the state inspector and has as
sisted those in direct charge by asso
ciation with an outside point of view.
The compulsory compensation act,
Mr. nnnclaa said, was defective In
many essentials. , j
'I think it is a fair assumption," he
said, "that the great majority of the
employers of labor today recognize the

should bear the burden of its hazards;
but it Is only fair that the financial
degree of responsibility should be de
fined and understood by both parties.
iA law which binds one party nd not
the other Is In Its ver7 essence unfair
and intolerable and can only be a fer
tile source of misunderstanding and
distrust" . . .

a foreign power would be to authorize

"The only real possibility of a war
