WHY SOCIETY WOMEN WASH
THEIR OWN HAIR '
They do, not because it is a fad.
but because they wish to obtain the
greatest possible hair beauty, and be
sure they are not . using anything
harmful. Thev have found that in
washing the hair it is never wise to
use a makeshift, but is always ad
visable to use a preparation made for
shampooing only. Many of our
friends say they get the best results
from a simole home-made canthrox
mixture. You can use this at a cost
of about three cents a shampoo bv
getting some canthrox from your
druggist and dissolving a teaspoonful
in a cup of hot water. This makes
enough shampoo liquid to apply to all
the hair instead of just the top of the
head, as with . most preparation!.
Dandruff, excess oil and dirt are dis
solved and entirely disappear in the
rinsing water. Your hair will be so
ruffy that it will look much heavier
than it is. Its lustre and softness will
also delight you. Advertisement,

More than one-sixth of the people

according to Miss Edith lobitt,
librarian. More than 28.000 cards are
now out. However; this does not serve
as a good index of the reading popula

as the children in outlying schools
draw books from school libraries
Six books may be drawn on one
card, and this gives an opportunity
for a whole family to be served by
one card. Because of this it would
be hard to indicate the number of
readers in the city, the librarian said.
