These suggestions are offered by

How to Store Ice.
Ice can be stored cheaply. Includ
ing hauling and packing and interest
on the investment in the building, it
should be done for $1 a ton.
45e sure that the water is clean and
free from vegetable matter. Nothing
can save water that is polluted.
Ice should be cut in regular sizes,
the best sizes being 22 by 22 inches
or 22 ty 32 inches. Be sure that all
snow is scraped from the ice field.
Forty to SO cubic feet of space
in the ice house' should be allowed
for a . ton of ice. The ice should be
packed in a cube as nearly as pos
sible. There should be no open
spaces between the blocks. Ventila
tion should be at the top.
The . food administration is arrang
ing with artificial ice manufacturers
to use, natural ice this summer so far

To Have Perfect Skin
Throughout the Winter
These days the face and hands need spe
cial care and attention. Strong winds, quick
changes of temperature from indoors to out
doors are severe on the sin. Their despoil
inir effects are best overcome b the ap
plication of pure mercollzed wax. This keeps
skin and pores in a cleanly condition, the
complexion beautifully white and spotless.
Chapped, reddened, blotchy and roughened
cuticle are actually absorbed by it. One
ounce of mercolized wax, obtainable at any
drug store, is sufficient to completely reno
vate a weather-beaten complexion. It is
used like cold cream, allowed to remain on
over night, and washed off in the morning.
As the skin tends to expand in a warm
atmosphere, cheeks and chin to sag and
wrinkles to form, a good astringent lotion
should be used by the woman who keeps
pretty much indoors these days. Dissolve
one ounce of powdered saxolite in one-half
pint witch haze). Bathe tha face in this
mornings or before going out for theater
or social affair. It is a remarkable skin
tightener and wrinkle eraser. Adv.
