The Pandora ran Into bad weather
• two days after she started around the
Horn and Ik.fere she had passed the

I Then* was a wind of about sixty
1 miles velocity and it had. during the
I course of an afternoon blown up
waves from sixty to seventy feet in
height Toward evening the wind
suddenly veered completely around.
I v it h the r< s uit that the top of each

dough out of which he intended to
make a Parker House roll The little

| As soon as the restraint of the sea
anchor was lifted the Pandora swung
into the trough of one great wave.
I’p ami up she climbed on the wall of
water until It grew thin and weak at
the top and was folded back by the
wind The wave broke just above
the yawl and crashed back, carry int;

By the law of precedent she should
have sunk like n canno’h ball but the

lines She righted herself and lived.

in the storm, but she came through
on top and was worked into port un
der her Jury sail. So great had been
the force of the storm that long strips
of the copper sheeting which covered

tills fact accounts for her later loss.

Two weeks In New York was

but the weather was so line and the
winds so even that they decided to

That is as far as the story goes.
Three months later Captain Blythe's

Two Germans, deep thinkers—Pro-

that egg shells eaten Increase the

strength to the heart; that they de

of the preparation advertised In Ixm

moving superfluous hair, being an ex
cellent substitute for table butter,

court tennis player and vegetal lan
says ho had an old nurse who used
to eat egg shells end crunch them joy

to meet and she said she ate the

off inside of the throat." The dlscov

Monroe, Wis —"When my baby was
six weeks old there came a rash on
his face which finally spread until It
got nearly all over his body. It form
ed a crust on his head, hair fell out
and the itch was terrible. When he
would scratch the cruet, the water
would ooze out in big drops. On faco
and body it was In a dry form and
would scale off. He was in great mis
ery and at nights 1 would lie awake
holding his hands so that he could not
scratch and disfigure himself. I tried
simple remedies at flrat. then got
medicine, but it did no good.
"Finally a friend suggested Cutlcura
Remedies, so I sent for a sample to
see what they would do, when to my
surprise after a few applications I
could sec an improvement, and he
would rest better. I bought a box of
Cutlcura Ointment and a cake of Cutl
cura Soap and before I had them half
used my baby was cured. His bead is
now’ covered with a luxuriant growth
of hair and his complexion is ad
