HOW I TOOK MY
: WRINKLES OUT
After Xaasags, Dreams, and Beauty
Doctors Sad railed.
IT liSUIT BTBTA
Trouble, worry and III health brought
ma deep Itnea and wrinkles. I realised
that they not only greatly marred my
appearance and mads me look much older,
but they would greatly Interfere with my
suooess, because a woman's success, either
socially or financially, depends very large
ly on her appearance. The homely woman,
with her deep lines and furrows In her
faos, must fight an unequal battle with
Iter younger and better looking sister.
1 therefore bought various brands of
oold cream and skin foods and massaged
my faee with most constant regularity,
hoping to regain my former appearance.
But the wrlnklea simply would not go. On
the contrary, they seemed to get deeper.
Nest I went to a beauty specialist, who
told me she oould easily rid me of iny
wrlngles. I paid the money and took the
treatment. Sometimes I tnought they got
less, but after spending all the money 1
eould afford for such treatment, I found I
atlll had my wrlnklea So I gave up In
dlspalr, and oonoludaid I must carry them
to my grays. One day a friend uf mine
who was versed In chemistry made a sug
gestion and this gave me a new Idea. I
Immediately want to work making exper
iments and studying everything I could
get hold of on this subject. After several
months of almost numberless trials and
discouragements I finally discovered a
process which produced most astonishing
results on my wrinkles lo a single night.
I was delighted beyound expression. I
tried uiy treatment again, and lo and be
hold, luy wrinkles wer practically gone.
A third treatment three nights In all
and I had no wrinkles and my face was as
smooth as ever. I next offered my treat
ment to some of my Immediate friends,
who used It with surprising results, and I
have now decided to give It to the public.
1 will aend further particulars to anyone
who Is Interested, absolutely free of chage.
I use do cream, massage, face steaming or
so-called skin foods; there Is nothing to
Inject and nothing to Injure the skin. It
Is an entirely now discovery of my ou,
and so simple that you can uae It without
the knowledge of your most intimate
frlenos. You apply the treatment at night
and go to bed. In the morning, lo! the
wonderful transformation. People often
wlrte me, "It sounds too good to be true"
Well, Hie test will tell. If Interested in
my d'scevery. please address HAKRIKT

Altogether Dan Cupid has done more
than anybody else In society to provide
Interesting things of Iste. He seems to
hsve been especially active among that
set supposed to be Immune to the Infec
tion of his darts, for from this set has
come some of the most Interesting of all
the Interesting gossip this fall and win
ter. Few of them now remain that are
not under suspicion, and like the pearl
necklace of the fable the chain having
been broken the pearls are rolling off
at both ends.
At one of the last supper parties given
by the old set, before the breakup com
menced late Inst autumn, when one of
the first engagements had been announced,
a toast was drunk to "The Attached."
Then another was proposed by one of the
women to "The Unattached" and that was
drunk, and then a third was proposed
by one of the society widowers to 'The
Detached" and that was drunk, too.

WHENCE THEJIUSIC CAME
Swiss Authority Traces the History,
of the Air "God Save
' . r .... I il L'llti. la the
latest contributor to the controversy over
the origin of the music of "God Save the
King." In his pamphlet Kllng says that
"Hell Dlr lm Biegeskrana" has been cred
ited to John Bull, Smith. Purcell. Lully,
Handel and Schumacher. His Investiga
tion, however, brought to light the fact
that It was originally a Geneva '.'national
hymn," written to celebrate the victory of
Geneva over the troops of the Duke of
Savoy In 1602. The title of the song was
"Ce qu'e 1'Alno." It was sung for the
first time at a "patriotic feast" In 1603.
Four years later It appeared In England
as 'God Save the King" and was nung In
honor of James I after an arrangement by
John Bull. At the beginning of the eigh
teenth century Mme. de Brlsson wrote
words foY the melody, which was worked
over by Lully Into a French patriotic song
for the glorification of Louis XIV. Then
the motive was taken by Handel for a
song to King George of Hanover. At the
end of tho century It went to Germany
again, by way of Denmark, where a clergy
man, Henry Harries, took the melody for
a birthday hymn to Christian VII. This
was published In 1700. It became a na
tional anthem, with eleven verses, which
number waa reduced to five by Schu
macher In 1793. It was Schumacher aiso
who reconstructed tho words to fit Prus
sian conditions. Early In the nineteenth
century the melody went back to Swlt
xerland In the form of a national song,
for which JSwIsslg wrote the words. These
were translated quickly Into French and
Italian. Kllng does not mention "My

The Hokansan Automobile Co.,
Oejitlemen: I am one of tho sev
eral thousand owners of Whito Steam
cars. I have a 1907 Model ''!!." and I
paid full list price for my car and nil
Its accessories, hence whnt I hav to
say relative to the White cars Is not
Influenced by reason of any discounts
received, or proni'ses of reward, but
simply to do Justice to the White
Company for having designed and
built an automobile that has given me
such perfect satisfaction, and the
use of which has contributed so much
to my health ani pleasure.
I received my car in May, 107. and
had never owned or driven an auto
mobile before, but had very thorough
ly Investigated nil kind and nnikrs,
before deciding on a "White Rtemn
er," and now after a season's use, 1
can truthfully say that I am Hatls
fled that I made no mistake in my
selection. The control being at all
times so absolute, and the operation
so simple, that I learnnd to drlvo tt
In less than one hour, and now feel
Just as confident on tho congested
thoroughfares of a large city ns upon
the country roods, and until the day
comes, when some Junius gives nn :i
perfect Htonure battery for elect rlo
automobiles, I think the White Kleam
Car Is the most peife.-t automobile
made In this or any other country,
and as long as I nm ubie to own a:nl
maintain a car, I expect to drive "The
Incomparable White Steamer."
