SCALP ITCHED AND BURNED

Ohio. "My Httlo girl's troublo first
started on her head In a bunch of lit
tle pimples full of yellow-looking mat
ter and they would spread in largo
places. ln a short time they would
open. Her scalp was awfully red and
inflamed and tho burning and itching
were so intenso that she would scratch
nnd rub till It would leave ugly sores.
Tho sores also appeared on her body,
and her clothing irritated them co
that 1 had to put real soft cloth next
to her body. Sho would Ho awake of
nights and was very worrisome. At
times she was tortured with itching
and burning. '
"I tried different remedies with no
benefit for months. I had given up all
hope of her ever getting rid of it, then
1 concluded to try Cuticura Soap and
Ointment. Tho second application
gavo relief. In a short tlmo sho was
entirely cured." (Signed) Mrs. Alice

Westernvllle, Neb. Although he Is
now an American citizen, he was born
a subject A George III, at the Httlo
village of Berrlew, Montgomeryshire,
tn January IB, 1794. He is therefore
one hundred nnd twenty years old.
His father was an agricultural la
borer and died when the boy was
three years old. Morris was appren
ticed to a cobbler and followed his
trade in this country untjl 1871, vhen,

Great Britain and Ireland, tho assassi
nation of President Lincoln and the
laying of tho first Atlantic cable.
Morris can still walk with the aid
of a stick and seo with tho aid of
spectacles, which ho first purchased
after passing his hundredth birthday.

Green Serge and Taffeta for Afternoon
,Bf MkwMmmmmmmmmmmmwmfiMmwmamWmmmwW jv-i
ONE of the prettiest models for an
afternoon gown has been devel
oped by Green of Paris. It is unusually
plain and it Is unusually Bhapely. Yet
it is strictly In the mode, and the
mode started out to be very fussy. But
Americana would not have too much
fusslness. Hence it Is a quieted and
much-chastened mode exemplified in
the model shown in the picture.
Tho skirt is draped in plaits folded
over toward the left side, with a short
split at the hem. It hangs In nt the
ankles and out a little at the hips.
The underbodlco Is a separato gar
ment of silk and lace.
Tho little coat is cut with kimono
sleeves and shaped to tho figure at
the front by folding it in from the
swell of tho bust downward. A short
basque is shaped into a semi-fitting
back and short rounded end. A dou
ble ruffle, widening toward the back, Is
Designed for Youthful Wearers
HATS for misses and Httlo girls do
not noticoably reflect the modes
that are In the ascendant fpr their
grown-up sisters. The sailor shape for
misses, like that shown In the pic
ture, the poko-bonnet shapes and wider
brimmed droopy hats, almost cover
the field of choice for tho miss. But
thoso .few dominant ideas havo been
so variously developed that thero Is no
Kor Httlo girls tho bonnet shapes,
the sombrero and some small replicas
of the simplest shape worn by their
elders, provldo a wide enough choice.
For tho copyist who finds It worth
while to trim tho children's millinery
ut homo, the four hutH pictured hore
are excellent models to follow. It is
no more difficult to trim these shapes
at homo thnn to mako dresses for tho
fcame young wearers.
A quaint, easily-trimmed poke bon
net of hemp, shown in the picture, is
trimmed with a wreath of forget-me-nots
and a plain sash of No. GO satin
ribbon. The underbrlm is faced with
tho ribbon, shirred on. A rufflo is
sowed to tho underbrlm about u half
inch In from tho edge. It Is turned
orer the edge and tacked down Jn a
cascade on the upper brim.
sowed to the edge of the coat antt
gives the effect of a shaped oversklrt.
There Is a smart finish of military
cord and silk tassels across the
The sleeves aro three-quarter length,
terminating in a rullle trimmed to a
point. There is an underruflle of Bilk
and a cord finish.
There is no coat collar, but a tie of
plaid silk makes a pretty finish at the
neck. But In tho mntter of tho neck
finish there Is latitudo here for the uso
of any of the modish collars of laco
or net which the makers of neckwear
have provided for the prevalent styles
Taking It altogether, this Is a cos
tume which Is far moro satisfactory
to the possessor of a good figure than
most of those furbolowcd and full,
hanging or bunchy effectB to which
fashion gives countenance, but her
devotees give a rather wide berth.
Satin moBsallne is tho ribbon cho
sen, In any light color, it Is tied in
a four-looped bow at each sldo. Finally
tho wreath of forget-me-nots is ad
Justed. It extende ubout the baso of
the crown at the front nnd along tho
edge of tho rufllo at tho back.
Tho small ynd wonderfully artistic
".sombrero" fa the next picture Is
trimmed with a cord, very appropri
ately, and finished with a ribbon
rufflo about the brim, headed with the
cord. Loops and ends of this cord
mako the finish.
Ono of tho hats, for an older girl, is
a sailor shape with oblong crown.
There is a collar of fancy silk braid
In rich colorings and a fan of satin
ribbon in tho color which predoml
nates in tho braid, at tho front.
The remaining hat is a sailor with
a round crown covered with overlap
ping rows of narrow ilbuon over tho
top. Thoro Is a wide band of braid
about tho side-crown and six small
fans of satin ribbon, doubled, sot about
tho base of the crown nt intervals.
By following the copy one runs no
risk of turning out nn amateurish-looking
hat as the result of painstaking ef
forts In homo trimming,
