IS GREAT AID TO COMPLEXION

that None la Allovred
Chief of Police Henry Wv Dunn has
found the only reliable, safe, sure way ot
eradicating the dandelion. He Is giving
his discovery to the public free and
claims no credit for originality. "Just
let the women know that there Is nothing
like dandelion greens for the complex
ion," he says; "Just let them know It.
Keep telling them about !t, and even
high society will bo on Its knees digging
dandelions tfV eat."
Chief Dunnalled attention to his com
plexion. "Isn't It flneT" he said. "Just
look at It. Dandelion greens did It.
These greens are .better when the plants
ore young, but they are good even after
the plant has flowered. Of course they
are bitter, but this bitterness ts the real
"I understand French specialists and
doctors of high reputation in the beauty
world have recommended dandelion
greens. I certainly recommend them. I
have tried them nnd know. The women
ought to be told about this, and the first
thing we would know wom.-n of CO to 70
yearn would have complcxtonr like ID-year-olds."
Chief Dunn says all this campaigning
to dig dandelions and pile tnem on va
cant lots Is not only a waste ot energy,
hut reckless disregard of the medicinal
value of the plant. If a man owns sev
eral million more dandelions than he can
uso In a season the chief rccommelias
that they be canned for the winter. Other
green things are preserved nnd tho chler
can see no reason why dandelion greenn
should be an exception to the rule.
