and failed, you can stop burning, itching
eczema quickly by applying a little zemo
furnished by any druggist for 25c. Ex

ilar skin diseases will be removed.
I For clearine the skin and making it
rigorously healthy, always use zemo, the
penetrating, antiseptic liquid, it is not a
creasy salve and it does not stain. V.'hen
others fail it is the one dependable treat
ment for skin troubles of all kinds.

TODAY'S AID TO BEAUTY
Hair is by far the most consoicu
ous thing about us, and is probably
the most easily damaged by bad. or
careless treatment. If we are very
careful in hair washing we will have
virtually no hair troubles. An es
pecially tine shampoo for this weath
er, one that brings out all the natural
beauty of the hair, that dissolves and
entirely removes all dandruff, excess
oil and dirt, can easily be used at tri
fling expense by simply dissolving a
teaspoonful of canthrox (which you
can get at any druggists) in a cup of
hot water. This makes a full cup of
shampoo liquid, enough so it is easy
to apply it to all the hair instead of
just the top of the head. This chem
ically dissolves all impurities and cre
ates a soothing, cooling lather. Rins
ing leaves the scalp spotlessly clean,
soft and pliant, while the hair takes
on the glossy richness of natural
color, also-a fluffiness which makes it
seem much heavier than it is. After
a canthrox shampoo, arranging the
hair is a pleasure. Advertisement,

tribes under your command, with

strongly led, have brought to
failure the great French attempt
to break through on the Aisne and

accomplished great things in its
death-defying perseverance and
"Convey my and the father
land's thanks to the leaders and

through the fight for existence to a
vigorous end. God grant it."

Alkali In Soap
Bad For the Hair
Soap should be used very carefully
if you want to keep your hair looking
its best. Most soaps and prepared
shampoos contain too much alkali.
This dries the scalp, makes the hair
brittle and rums it.
The best thing for steady use is
just ordinary mulsihed cocoanut oil
(which is pure and greaselcss), and is
better than the most expensive soap
or anything else you can use.
Une or two teaspoonfuls will
cleaifse the hair and scalp thoroughly.
Simply moisten the hair with water
and rub it in. It makes art abundance
of rich, creamy lather, which rinses
out easily, removing every particle of
dust, dirt, dandruff and excessive oil.
The hair dries quickly and evenly and
it leaves the scalp sou and the hair
fine and silky, bright, lustrous, fluffy
and easy to manage.
lou can get mulsihed cocoanut oil
at any pharmacy: it's very chcao and
a tew ounces will supply every mem
ber of the family for months. Adv.
MUSTN'T YIELD FOR
FEW BITESOF BREAD
Manifesto to German People
Urges Them to Hold Out
for While Longer,
EVERYTHING IS AT STAKE
Amsterdam (Via London),, April 23
An appeal to the German people not
to give in for the sake of a mouthful
of bread, but "to hold out only a little
while longer" is printed in the Nord
deutschc Allgemeinc Zeitung.'
"America found out," says the
statement, "that England will be
beaten and she entered the war to
save what she could of the money put
in the munition business. Shall v
let America reap the profits?jSet your
teeth and it will soon be over. Re
member all is at stake."
The association of Christian trades
unions of Berlin in a manifesto couples
an affirmation of loyalty to the Ger
man emperor and empire with a strong
condemnation of strikes, which it says
"Do not provide a single grain more
bread and the enemy, like a drowning
man, is grasping at the STraw, eagerly
watching for the least sign of dis
union in Germany." jA
"Therefore," says the mantWsto, "all
must stand pat."
Endeavorers Are Urged to
