Did it ever occur to you that every
movie actress you have seen has
lovely hair, ...while the most popular
count their curls a their chief beauty?
In fact (this is a secret), many are
leading ladies just because 'of their
attractive locks. Inquiry among them
discloses the fact that they bring out
all, the natural beauty of their hair
by careful shampooing, not with any
soap or makeshift, but with a simple
mixture which they makev up for
themselves by putting teaspoonful
of canthrox (which they get from the
druggist) in a cup of hot water and
applying this instead of soap. After
its use their hair dries rapidly, with
uniform color. Dandruff, excess oil
and dirt are dissolved and entirely
"disappear. The hair U so fluffy that
it looks much heavier than it is. Its
luster and softness is delightful, while
the stimulated scalp gains the health
which insures hair growth. Adv.

Old Gander Bitea.
By Eleanor M. Kirk, Aged 9 Years,
htockham. Neb. Ked Side.
I have never written to this case
before, but I have decided to tell von
of my experience with an old gander.
One day an old gander chased me
and so l thought that I would get
even with him. Then I grabbed him
by the neck and undertook to put him
in the tank, for it' was nearby. I did
not get my hand close enough to his
head, and of course he wanted to es
cape, so he bit me on theyarm when
I was about to drop him in. Then I
dropped him , in, and of course he
wanted to get out. but he couldn t.
Prefty soon papa looked out 'of the'i
winaow ann saw me crying, then he
came out and asked me what was the
matter, and I told him. He then
walked over to the tank and pulled
the gander out. .
Ihe-jiark of his bill staved on mv
arm tor a tew days, and I will advise
you children never to .try putting a
gander in the tank.
1 hope Mr . Wastebasket is not wait
ing at the door for this,

took us. about a half an hour to get
therebecause we had the pony. When
we did- get there, there were hardly
any nuts. ' ' ,
AH four of us only sot a sack full.
On our way home we had to turn a
corner, and there was a hill right at
the corner. Fanny, our pony, stopped
right on the hill and started to back
up. All of us jumped out because
the; buggy was iust about to unset
Just as soon as we got out she. got
up and started to run. She did not
run far before she stopped. We were

When we got home w? tied the

about it they laughed and said that
we were making it up. . We didn't go

talk to her. The grass did not -like
her, but she tried to be good. But in
a moment a big man came by. . He
was cutting the fall, green grass. Oh.

not be there. She was afraid ot his
bharp knife. But he carried away Hie
grass and left Mrs. Milkweed standing

A long vood'bye.

thought of the sleiglkrides and of all
the snow houses 1 was going to

as glad that winter was coming as
well as summer.

will try until I, do, and even after. , "
