KlTfif WM HlW Mill Mil gaaaaaa aaaa aMMaaaiaa"aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa PRESIDENT AND FIRST LADY . PROOF AGAINST H00D00S With the announcement that President Wilson and the first lady of the land will leave Washington soon for Shadow Lawn, the royal palace of a place in New Jersey that is ready for presidential occupancy, conies the thought that the name Shadow Lawn is not a particularly cheerful suggestion for a retreat where bright news is hoped for. Sunshine is a more favorable success breeder than shadow. But you never can tell, and President Wilson is hand-ln-glove, so they say, with most of the hoodoos already. They generally work ut t Ills interest, so the president himself claims. There's that unlucky thirteen stuff, for ex ample. The president ut eats up thirteen like an ice cream cone It's his lucky number, und as Ior,lTi days, why, the emnte&t gentitrr.an would have every day in the week fall on Friday if he could have his unopposed say so. The president will occupy Shadow Lawn in the thirteenth year of its existence. It was built in 1903. So he scores there to begin with and will proceed to eliminate the spots out of the hoodoo that the natives feel, with a superstitious shudder, lurks about the magnificent abode. Unmerciful disaster is said to have followed fast and followed faster up on the heels of the three former resi dents of Shadow -Lawn . Bankruptcy stalked red-handed thrugh its pala tial halls. Collapses lurked in its doorways. Everything short of shocks and infantile paralysis in fested the scene on account of the war on the high price of gasoline or something of that sort, very likely. But the evil spell, popularly sup posed to do business in blocks of three, will have exhausted Itself be- ways compensations even to the worst and most presidential of slav eries, it would seem. Palm Beach Post. WELL- BRED WOMEN DO NOT WEAK FEATHERS AND TEA-LA-LAS Women are learning that a display of feathers and ultra finery and tra-la-las for street wear that cost ever so much money, is a good deal like opening their purses and inviting the wayfarer to look at the tax to tal. Naturally well-bred women do not care bo to advertise themselves sartorially. ' Still, all street cos tumes can have style, snap and a smart appearance, if there is money available to pay for those qualifica-j tions. Poverty, however, is no ex cuse for frumpish dressing. A very moderate income, combined with a fairly good dress sense can produce an acceptable wardrobe. It is not true that clothes are more expensive than ever; they are cheaper than they have been for many years; that is everyday costumes for either the' woman of fashion or the working woman. They say that millinery prices have slumped a half; that the expensive plumage has gone out of style and the durability of the ma terial used, which is economy in the long run. Daytime dresses seem to have reached the heisl t of perfection this year. They are the simplest of the simple for morning and street wear and they are dainty and charming for afternoon and evening. The typical dress for late summer wear is fashioned of voil, crepe or organdie. One of the prettiest dresses worn at dance last week was of pink organ die with ruffle trimming of the ma terial. It was not loaded down with lace and ribbon and a satin founda- GIVING ADVICE j A woman there was and she wrote for the press (As you or I might do). She told how to cut and fit a dress, And how to stem many a savory mess, But she never did it herself, I guess (Which none of the readers knew). Oh, the hour we spent and the flour we spent, And the sugar we wasted like sand, , At the behest of a woman who never had cooked (And now we know that she never could cook), And did not understand. A "woman there was, and she wrote right fair (As you or I might do) How out of a barrel to make a chair. To be covered with chintz and stuffed with hair, 'Twould adorn any parlor and give it an air (And we thought the tale wan true) . fore the fourth occunant of Khnrlnw Lawn takes up his residence there tot,on and was a11 the prett,er for ll' be Informed that a big bunch of pea- ,rdles and be,ts of many descriP nle are Wk htm for on on. M- lons are still very fashionable ma! w uaavjUA j yi ,0 ldential engagement. The new Mrs. Wilson has kept up an exuberant social campaign for a record-breaking stretch of months and she isn't fagged in the least yet, they say. A large reception at the White House in the dog days such as the president and Mrs. Wilson recently gave to visiting postmasters was an almost unprecedented dem onstration of energy. The rest of the social world at Washington and everywhere else, for that matter, flopped long ago. -ei i- t Mrs. Wilson has been playing golf almost daily with her husband at the sequestered little country club across the river to Virginia beloved by both. She goes on many a stealthy tramp with her lord, unde terred even by rainfalls. Macin toshes are plentiful at the White House and goloshes are a drug in the market. Week-ends on the Mayflower, ever, are pretty good substitutes for a long summer trip. There are al- iug it easy to introduce variety and color in the costumes. Narrow strap belts of colored suede, soft or vivid, according to the tone of the material Lf the gown, encircle coat or simple skirt of the sport costume, and the plain little serge or linen frock may be girdled, as soberly or gorgeously as fancy dictates. The daytime dress of natural linen is made attractive by bright embroidery. One thing is certain. One need not be afraid of oddity in clothes these days. Ex. Oh, the days we worked, and the ways we worked To hammer and saw and tack, In making a chair in which no one would sit, A chair in which no one could pos sibly sit. Without a crick in his back. A woman there was and she had her fun (Better than you and I); She wrote recipes, and she never tried one; She wrote about children of course she had none She told us to do what she nevev had done (And never intended to try). It isn't to toil and it isn't to spoil, That brims the cup of disgrace It's to follow the woman who didn't know beans (A woman who never had cooked any beans), But wrote and was paid to fill space.

Take no more sick ening, salivating calomel when bilious or constipated. Don't lose a day's work! Calomel is mercury or quicksilver which causes necrosis of tne bones. Calomel, when it comes into contact with sour bile crashes into it, breaking it up. This is when you feel that awful nausea and cramping. If you are slug- f:ish and "all knocked out," if your iver is torpid and bowelo constipated or you have headache, dizziness, coated tongue, if breath is bad or stomach sour just take a spoonful of harmless Dod eon'a liver Tone on my guarantee. Here's my guarantee Go to any drug Btore and get a 50 cent bottle of Dod son's Liver Tone. Take a spoonfulHo night and if it doesn't straighten you right up and make you feel fine and vigorous by morning I want you to go back to the store and get your money. Dodson's Liver Tone is destroying the sale of calomel because it is real liver medicine; entirely vegetable, therefore it can not salivate or make you sick. I guarantee that one spoonful of Dod son's Liver Tone will put your sluggish liver to work and clean your bowels of that sour bile and constipated waste which is clogging your system: and mak ing you feel miserable. I guarantee that a bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone will keep your entire family feeling fine for months. Give it to your children. It U harmless; doesn't gripe and they like it pWasant taste.
