How to Make a Real
(From Fashion Reporter)
In these days of cleverly adver
tised "beaut'tlers" of 57 varieties
and more, it is hard for any woman
to believe that she can make a sim
ple home remedy which will do her
much more good and cost her much
less than the average made prepara
tions. Take the subject of wrinkles,
for Instance. There is nothing in
the world so effective for removing
or preventing wrinkles, baggy
cheeks and double chins, as a solu
tion of saxollte and witch hazel.
Get an ounce of pure powdered
saxollte from any drug store, dis
solve the full ounce In a half pint of
witch hazel and use the mixture
3aily as a refreshing lotion. The
lulck and satisfactory results will
lurprlse you. Even after the very
first application there Is a marked
Improvement. The wrinkles are lees
in evidence and the face has a firm,
"solid" feelinc that 1 very comforting.

Owners of Dogs Procrastinate
Buying of Muzzles for
CANINES ARE THE LOSERS
While Masters Await Action by
Neighbors, Police Get liusy
and Animals Go Route.
An indisposition on the part of dog
owners to go to the trouble of deter
mining the size of muzzle required
by their dog and then purchasing
one, is resulting in the death of many
fine animals these days. As told in
The Argus last evening some 200
have been put to death by the police
thus far this season and the pros
pects are that there will be as many
more before the dog days are over.
The general apathy about the pur
chase of muzzles has had its effect
upon the dealers in such about the
city and there Is a shamefully small
stock of them on hand.
DOST I.IKE THEM.
A visit to three of the principal
markets for these goods showed that
there were probably six dozen muz
zles in stock. At t'0 of these places
wire cage like concerns were sold
and as stated by one of the clerks
considerable difficulty is experienced
in fitting them. "There is no mean
er trade than that of handling dog
muzzles," said he. "People come in
to buy without any Idea of what s'ze
muzzle they need and frequently two
and three exchanges are necessary
before the right one is secured. Then
again there is no way of estimating
how many will be needed and we do
not care to lay In a large stock unless
the law 13 going to be enforced and
people are going to buy."
WANT TO UK SHOWN.
This last point seems to be the key
to the whole situation. No one is
going to get a muzzle until absolute
ly compelled to do so. As stated,
muzzles were found yesterday at all
of the stores visited. One firm stat
ed that it had never -been more than
two or three days at a time out of
a, stock of them, another claimed not
to have been out this season and yet
none have stocked very heavily In
these goods. From the estimates of
sales given, probably 4 00 muzzles
have been sold this summer. There
seems to be a disposition on the part
of the merchant as well as on that
of the owner of the dog to wait to
see if the law is to be enforced in
spite of the fair warning that has
been given. One owner will muzzle
his dog if his neighbor does, and so
it seems that a good many dogs are
to pay the penalty of this procrasti
nation and "show me" attitude.
It is to be hoped, however, that
owners of dogs of real value will not
neglect to take proper precaution
and either keep the dog off the
streets or keep him muzzled.
