"Rub Coco-Bloom into the pores until the cream- is entirely absorbed using an upward and outward motion. Afterward use first hot then co!4 water applications, and.lastly witch hazel to close the pores. A fe\y or thete treatments wxll Tfprk a marvelous change in the appearance of your skin.

"Benjamin Franklin is. the greatest man the. Western Hemisphere ever produced," declared Dr. W. L. Phelps, professor of English liter.- ature, Yale University, at the even-, ing session of the So.ut-hern Illinois Teachers' Association. He took two great Americans, Johuathan. Edwards, one of America's most imminent theologians and 'Benjamin Franklin, the great statesman, scientist and patriot. Dr. Phelps computed these two Americans. He declared the combination of thes.e two men made the ideal American; each was a man or g-enius, and. each of whom had the quality which the other lucked. Edwards was a man wli'o,se life showed little excitement, but whose inner .being was a turmoil, oi emotions. He was either in the skies oi hihirty or in the mire of 'depression, iCpprehensive and imaginative. He was a lover of music, art, books and the esthetic world. Pos,-' sessed with a deep religious passion. He looked at life as a nc- dlc, but a riddle only to be solved. .He saw the people of the world doomed in the future life, the great part, of them goiug. to the everlasting tropics.

He suggested improvements and betterment of conditions, declaring the nation wai suffering from the lack of proper education of co.untry school children.
