Surely try a "Danderine Hair
Cleanse" if you wish to immediately
double the heauty of your hair. Just

any excessive oil?in a few minutes
you will be amazed. Your hair will
be wavy, fluffy and abundant and possess
an incomparable softness, lustre
tsesides Deautnying tne nair, one application

particle of dandruff; invigorates the
scalp, stopping itching and falling
Danderine is to the hair what fresh
showers of rain and sunshine are to
vegetation. It goes right to the roots,
invigorates and strengthens them. Its
exhilarating, stimulating and life-producing
properties cause the hair to
grow long, strong and beautiful.
You can surely have pretty, soft,
lustrous hair, and lots of it, if you will
just get a 25-cent bottle of Knowlton's
Danderine from any drug store or toilet
counter and ty it as directed.
Often Destroyed by Fir?.
Time after time, together with th?
rest of the city of Moscow, the Kremlin
has been burned, the last occasion
being in 1812 when it was occupied
by Napoleon and the inhabitants ol
the city themselves sturted the conflagrations
in all parts of the city. It
was indeed these tires which forced
the little corporal to commence hig
disastrous retreat across the snowhound
steppes of Russia. Napoleon
had his headquarters in the Kremlin,
and while the flames were not so destructive
there as in other parts of the
city, yet they forced evacuation.
Scientific investigation has Droved
that compression of a high degree does j
not injure the liber, and cotton is pncked
In other countries today at a density
substantially three times that of
ours by the most economical practice.
The Egyptian package has a density
of about 37 pounds a cubic foot; the
Indian cotton is compressed to 45
pounds per cubic foot; while some Indian
and Chinese buling plants effect a
density of from 55 to GO pounds of
cotton per cubic foot.
The Arab as a Neighbor.
The Aral) makes a good neighbor.
His love of the beautiful in architecture
is evidenced in a hundred cities
where his handiwork survives. Every
visitor to Grunada knows what was
left behind at the Alhnmbra. When the
Arnb met Rome, he produced Palmyra;
having absorbed the Sassmlan dynnsty
of the neo-I'erslan empire in G37,
the Arab created Bagdad; in overrunning
Spain, he worked magic at Cordova
To Remove Smoke Stains.
This suggestion will be beneficial to
housewives who have not the conven- .
lence of electricity or the modern gas I
fixtures. Frequently the ceiling
above an old-fashioned gas jet becomes
discolored from smoke and heat, i
The discolorutlon may be removed if
a layer of starch and water is applied
with a piece of llannel. After the mix- "
ture has dried it should be brushed
lightly with a brush. No stain or mark
Women Catch Fish With Hands. ^
Fishing in Samoan seas is often done
by the women, and without nets, boats
op hooks. They simply wade Into the
water and form themselves Into n ring.
The fishes being so plentiful, they nre
almost sure to imprison some In the
ring. These women are very quick and j
active, and every time they catch a (
fish with their hands they simply throw j
it, alive, into the busket on their buck. r
Translation of Y. M. C. A.
W. Gordon Griffiths of the Y. M. O. t

proud to be a Welshman although he c
was unable to speak the "language of 1
Paradise." He hod, however, learned ?
one thing in Welsh und that was that
the letters Y. M. C. A. may be trans- n

The Constipation Evil
There is no ailment to which tho
body is subject that is so far reaching
in its injurious effects as constipation.
It means a congestion of the Dowels
and usually causes sick headache,
pains in the back, sour stomach, sallow
complexion, offensive breath or
loss of appetite. When you suffer
from any of these ills, take a few
doses or Granger Liver Regulator.
You will be surprised how quickly it
restores your normal health. Granger
Liver Regulator contains no calomel
and produces none of its distressing
effects. It has. however, all the corrective
value of calomel, and mav be
freely given to children as well as to
adults. Granger Liver Regulator is
also free from alcohol. A dox of it
lasts long, and a few doses relieve ordinary
cases of biliousness. Granger
Liver Regulator is sold by druggists
everywhere at 25c a box. Refuse all
substitutes as there is no other medicine
just like Granger Liver Regulator.
The United States food administration
expects all hotels, restaurants,
cafes, boarding houses railway
eating houses and dining car

"Hotel division food administration
announces the following urogram

Monday and Wednesday,
wheatless; Tuesday, meatless; Saturday,
porkless. One meatless and
one wheatless meal each day. Portion
of bread rolls should consist of
not more than two ounces and rot
more than this quantity should be
served to anyone at any one i leal.

not more than four ounces. You will
note that all hotels, restaurants and
dining cars will come under new baking:
regulations, announced in press,
February 1st., but hotels and restaurants
have led van of food conservation
and can do no more. News
dispatches from Germany are convincing:
evidence that food is going
to win the war. Show the country
that you are more than willing: to
do your part in this accomplishment."
