Maid Marian: The only greaseless face | rr*am I k n o w of is an almozoin massage · cream J e l l j , which you can easily prepare, as the Ingredients are Inexpensive and can be had at any drug store. Dissolve one ounce almozoin In half-pint cold water, then add two teaspoonfuls | glycerine, stir well, and let stand sev- v ral hours Massaging the skin nightly w i t h this remotes blackheads, reduces large pores, and softens *incl tones the ikin. KHlnsr it a healthy, ruddy glow. It alw corrects greasy and roughened skins and prevents and arrests wrinkles. Madam X.: Be frank with your husband and do not try to conceal anything from him. For that scaly condition of the face, I would suggest a spurmax lotion This Is superior to powder in many ways, easier to applv and dries quickly, giving the skin a smooth, satiny feeling. You can prepare this lotion at little expense, by dissolving four ounces of spurmax In a half pint of hot water, then adding two teaspoonluls of glycerine. Shake well, when cool it Is ready. This makjos the most reliable and satls- f a c t o i v skin beautlfler of which I know. You can Bet spurmax In any drug store. Phoebe HI · The reason vour hair Is stringy and hard to manage Is because the root 1 * are In a starved condition. I dm giving you a recipe for an inexpensive h a i r tonic, which, If used regularly, aciordlnK to simple directions, will correct this, condition and promote a fine, h e a l t h y growth of hair. Get an ounce of qulnzom from the drug store and dis- «ol\ e In half-pint of alcohol, then add the same q u a n t i t y of water. Using this n l g h t l v as a stalp massage strengthens the hair roots, and Its continued use will give life and luster -to the hair. Young Wife' Don't despair. I don't think voxir husband loves you less, but the condition of j o u r face is jarring to the ee Your pimply, muddy complex- Ion l caused through Impurities In the blood, and what you require Is a good ' tonl and svstem legulator.

Typist: Your increasing weight Is no just cause for alarm, but if you fear your foim is lowing its symmetrical lines, and want a fat dissolvent, I would suggest the following, which can be had at any drug store and is not expensive: Dissolve four ounces parnotls in 11-2 pints hot water. Take a tablespoonful of this before each meal, and you will gradually regain your natural weight and contour of form. This parnotis treatment requires no violent exercise nor dieting, and Is really quite harmless. Eva: My dear girl! The downy growth on your lip Is not so serious a matter, and I would not shun society on that account, were I you. You can easily remove the fuzz if you follow these simple instructions: Get an ounce of delatone, and mix enough water with a little to make a thick paste. Cover offending halis deeply with this and let remain two or three minutes, then remove and wash the skin carefully. Any druggist can supply delatone, and while it costs a dollar an ounce, it Is worth it, as It does the work, and It Is seldom necessary to apply it more than once. Jane: It is annoying to have an itchy scalp, but you can easily correct this and k.eep it sweet and clean, and In a healthy, vigorous condition If you use a canthrox shampoo. You can prepare this at trifling cost, and any druggist can supply it. One teaspoonful of can- thox dissolved In a teacup of hot water makes sufficient mixture for one shampoo Pouring a little at a time on the head and massaging- the scalp vigorously, then rinsing thoroughly, removes dust and dandruff, and adds new life to the scalp and luster to the hair. With this shampoo the hair dries quickly and is not stringy and hard to do up. Brown Eyes' (1) Before you buy eyeglasses try the simple eye tonic I have suggested to others This is easy to prepare and quite Inexpensive. Buy an ounce of crystos at the drug store and dissolve In pint of warm water. Drop one or two drops in each eye with a medicine dropper.

First Through the Waterway. The morning of the 17th, the great day when the actual celebration was to reach its climax, was ushered In with all the splendor of an Egyptian sun and the thundeiing of many salutes of ordnance. At 8 o'clock in the morning the Empress Eugenie's yacht, 1'Aigle, swung wide of her mooring and headed for the entrance to the Suez Canal. Amid the firing of salutes the yacht entered the canal, and was soon followed by that of the Austrian Emperor. Then a procession of 50 vessels, bearing the 3.000 guests, steamed up the canal showing as much bunting as they could carry. The largest ships, the Latlf, the Europe, and the Delta, were vessels "of 2,500 tons burden, with a draft of 19 feet.

Every woman can have nice hair. Not the kind that may be purchased at the store, but real live hair growing on her own head. There is nothing quite as handsome as a nice head of natural, fluffy hair. NEWBRO'S HERPICIDE MAKES THAT KIND OF HAIR It Is no trouole to have nice hair. If not Interfered with the hair will grow longr and iuxuriantlv.

On the plain near Ismalia the khedlve had arranged foi a sham battle by hundreds of BeJouin chiefs More than a thousand of them, mounted on Arabian steeds, took part In the battle, which was an excellent representation of Oriental warfare Spears and matchlocks were used, and the fighting was carried on while the chiefs galloped with incredible swiftness over the plain. The affair ter- I mlnated with the review of 5,000 regular Egyptian troops. ' On the 19th the passage to Suez was resumed at the rate of 5 knots an hour. The vessels filed Into the canal, and, keeping 2 kilometers apart, steamed to the entiance of the Bitter I/akes, where thev anchored for the night, and at noon on the 20th Suez was sighted. The Empress Eugenie sent a telegram to the Emperor Napoleon, apprising of their arrival at the eastern end of the canal, and other messages were flashed !al I over the world. A grand ball was held at Suez, which was attended by the sovereigns, and the fleet returned to Port on the 22d.

That is one of the things Dr. Herbert D. Pease fold members of the Woman's Municipal League. "I am sure," said Dr. Pease, "that much of the incense burning in the temples was to produce a vapor to kill or drive away files. You know that the slaughtering of the animals took pltfce in the temples." After his talk. Dr. Pease showed moving pictures of flies. Seemlnf to be as large as birds, they walked about on refuse, taking up disease germs in their legs and feet The pictures were brought to this city through the efforts of Edward Hatch, jr.. Dr. Pease said, and have been placed at the disposal of moving picture theaters for free exhibition. "It was first announced In New York In 1S97" that flies were germ transmitters." Dr. Pease said, "and the greatest number of cases of typhoid fever are caused through their carrying contagion. Eighty per cent of the deaths in the army in the . Spanish-American war were caused by typhoid.
