Dissolve one bottle of ovelo powder In two ounces of water, moisten the hair Mosquito: "Any of certain dipterous Insects, of th-family Cull-, cldae having' a rather narrow abdomen, usually a long; and slender but firm proboscis. The males have a featherlike antennae and the mouth parts are not fitted for piercing, but the females have slender antennae, and a set of needlelike organs In the proboscis with which they puncture the skin of fruits or animals to suck up their Juice or blood." Noah Webster. Mr. Websteif in his ponderous and well-advertised volume, also declared that mosquitoes were products of swamps and stagnant waters. He does not speak of their historical origin. It is' a well-known fact that the first American-born mosquitoes, were discovered In New Jersey shortly after the landing of the white man. Nothing mean can be said about the male mosquito; he minds his business and leaves the sanguinary work to the women folks. In tne caae of the mosquito It can be truly said that the female of the species is more deadly than the male. She takes particular delight in poking her needlelike organ, as Mr. Webster called it, into mankind in general. Gallons of good, red, American blood is absolutely wasted each year through the activities of female mosquitoes, and efforts of various societies and organizations have resulted In only a multiplication of the insects. They take particular delight in pestering the fellow who wears silk hose and low shoes, but are not respectors of persons. There is only one class of people who escape the vicious efforts of the mosquitoes the Eskimos but who wants to go to for the summer?"

They have found that in washing the hair it' is never wise to use a makeshift but is always advisable to use a preparation made for shampooing only. Many pf our friends say they get the besy results from a simple home-made canthrox mixture. You can use this at a cost of about three cents a shampoo by getting some canthrox from your druggist, and dissolving a teaspoonful in a cup of hot water. This makes enough shampoo liquid to apply to all the hair Instead of- Just the top of the head, as with most preparations.

The comparisons In speed, between the results of the old timers' race and the race between the two Fageol motor cars which will be held the same day, should prove an object lesson to the publlo and show them graphically just how far the automobilnas advanced during the past decade and a half. Accerdlng to the plans of the parade committee It Is proposed to have the automobiles of long; ago. segregated and grouped In divisions. These groups wTTl be in time periods of five years each so that the parade will show each production of a. half decade at a time. Thos. Schhiter. who will be in charge of the parade, feels that from the pres ent outlook this feature or the ground breaking ceremonies will be one of the most Interesting events ever held In Oakland.

How eiKht Dutch fishermen earned $2,000,000 for their day's fishing trip instead of the each, was told today by Michael F. Sweeney of Lowell, and William F. Ford, seamen from the torpedoed Belgln relief steamship Kongalt. The Kongall was torpedoed April 20, off the coast of Holland. The crew escaped in the. boats and made their way to the coast. They had scarcely landed when the fishermen, who had filled the hole in the side of the Kongall with bags of grain, towed her into port. The salvage money gave each of the fishermen about $260,000.
