Howard St. Alkali In Soap Bad for the Hair rSoap should be used very carefully, if you want to keep your hair looking its best. Most soaps and prepared shampoos contain too much alkali. This dries the scalp, makes the hair brittle ?nd ruins it. The best thing for steady use is just ardinary mulsified cocoanut oil (which is jure and greaseless), and is better than the most expensive soap or anything else you can use. One or two teaspoonfuls will cleanse the hair and scalp thoroughly. Simply moisten the hair with water and rub it in. It makes an abundance of rich, creamy lather, which rinses out easily removing every particle of dust, dirt dandruff and excessive oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and it leaves the scalp soft and the hair fine and silky, bright, lustrous, fluffy and easy to manage. , You can get mulsified cocoanut oil at any pharmacy; it's very cheap, and a few ounces will supply every member of the family for months.

Raising Quotas.; T TW- MEN WITH TRADES IN DEMAND Large nnibera Of Cooks, Chauffeurs, Clerics, Stevedores, Etc., Wanted For National 'Army. ' Nearly 700 men for Maryland's. National Guard is the crying need at the present time and the recruiting force of the United States Army at 16 St, Paul street is bending every effort to get the 700 without delay. If the men do not voluntarily appear, the guard ranks will be filled by draft, either from the quota already provided by the district, boards or through a new allotment: It may be that the Government will need the present men in the first draft for the National Army and that the second draft will be for filling the National Guard ranks. " It is believed that this point will be determined as soon as all the Maryland troops are assembled at Anniston. The army recruiting force here stated yesterday that the following gaps appear in the State forces and must be filled soon: Fifth Regiment. 27; Fourth Regiv ment, 400; First Regiment, 200; Battery A, Field Artillery, 29; Battery B, 17; Battery C, 0; Coast Artillery. 70 -,- Of course, no man who is still, liable I to draft will be considered, but . it; is felt by the recruiting officers that there ore hundreds of others who are acceptable. Some of those discharged by the district examination board will be -ac-1 eeptable for. service, as minor defects that caused rejection can . be remedied by - the army surgeons. ' It is hoped to have the State units up to full war quota, so that it will not be necessary to put drafted men into their; ranks, for then the State will show its willingness to serve the nation. ' ' -' A large force of men who will not be compelled to shoulder a rifle is the great need of the regular army now. Men with any kind of a trade chauffeurs, clerks, in fact a man who is proficient in any work, is wanted to assist in the National Army mobilization. Cooks and bakers are also in great demand, and the army is especially anxious to-get its cooks from Maryland, which for . generations has boasted of its epicurean pre-eminence and excellence of cuisine. Then there is a demand for stevedores, especially negroes. They will not have to do any fighting. The pay is good and the men are given excellent' food and lodging. Married men are acceptable for this work. Some are wanted for service at the camps in this country and some for shipment at once to "France. ' I TKa rAAFlfinF AVia Tinl'o ale wrrtll cept men for service in the District of Columbia National Guard, which is 1,-200 short, and for the Delaware Guard Regiment, which is 650 short of its war strength.
