Best Home Treatment
for All Hairy Growths
(The Modern Beauty.)
Every woman should have a small
package of delatone handy, for its
timely use will keep the skin free
from beauty-marring hairy growths.
To remove hair or fuzx from arms
or neck, make a thick paste with
some of the powdered delatone and
water. Apply to hairy surface and
aiter two or three minutes rub off,
warn the skin and it will be free
from hair or blemish. To avoid dis
appointment, be sure you get delatone.

"Johnnie wouldn't hurt me. We've
always been great friends." I
"He wouldn't, eh?" Mr. Crow re
torted. "How do you know he :
wouldn't hurt you?" i I
"He never has hurt me," Snowball
"Perhaps not! Perhaps not!" Mr. j
Crow croaked. But you never can

low flew off he looked as if afll the
cares in the world were weighing him
down. Snowball noticed that he flew
heavily. It took a great amount of
flapping of his broad wings to lift him
out of the pasture. And when he was
well up in the air he gave a glum
caw, caw as he wheeled and sailed
away down the wind.
Well, Snowball couldn't help be
ing somewhat disturbed, by. Mr.
Crow's grave actions and his graver
remarks. . "Iv wonder."" thought
Snowball, "if Mr. Crow knows what

So Snowball ran "down the hillside
pasture to the place where the flock
had gathered to graze. And to his
astonishment some of the flock
didn't even lift their heads from the
grass when he related all fhat Mr.
Crow had said. Those that . did
pause and listen to Snowball only
giggled and went to feeding again.
No I there was one that spoke to
him. Aunt Nancy Ewe spoke up a
bit tartly. "
"If you're worried you'd better
stay ' away when Johnnie Green
comes to salt us," she told him. "We
all expect to have very pleasant
time," she added. - ;, r
"Have yoMt'cver-had salt put. on
your tail?" Snowball asked the old
lady. ' ' ', ;
"Certainly not!" she snapped. And
she glared at Snowball so fiercely
that he fell back several steps. "Are
you trying to tease me?" she cried.
He did not answer.. It was plain
to him that Aunt Nancy didn't know
anything about the trick of putting
salt on one's tail, Yesl Mr. Crow
must be wiser than she was. - 1 "
"They'll all get - into trouble
Snowball thought. And then he
said something that was almost ex
actly like what Mr. Crow had said
to him. "They can't say I didn't
warn them!" ,
