"Our men," said Mrs. Clark, "are fighting for liberty, demo- cracy, human dignity and plain, ordinary decency. We are learning in war the community of sacrifice which makes victory possible. We must develop religious zeal--an impelling motive that will unite all people of good will upon principles to which all can be devoted."

Early secrets of watchmaking were closely guarded and handed from generation to generation within families. V E L V E T S O F T N E S S FO R D R Y S K I N SPECIAL VALUE!
