NATURE'S ODORS IN BREEZES
Fashionable Fan Is Trimmed With
As breeze producers tiny palm leaf
fans with a burden of American Beau-
ty roses—laid flat and securely fast-
ened—aren't to be as ardently de-
sired as those of a simpler sort. How-
ever, they are the fad at present and
many women at the Saratoga races
have carried such flower-laden fans.
These perfumed plam leaves left a
boundless fragrance in their wake.
Mrs. Clarence Mackay was particular-
ly partial to them and used them for
favors at one of her luncheons last
week. There were eleven of them
all told and with their effective cargo
tied with broad pink ribbons, they
formed as attractive a table decora-
tion as could well be desired. If Mrs.
Mackay was a disciple of old-fash-
ioned economy she would have invited
another guest thereby needing a dozen
favors—which might have meant a dis-
count from the florist who supplied
them.—New York Press.
A Ruined Seaport
Rye i3 a curious cJd place and
otters attractions to golfers and anti-
quarians—Two very different tribes.
One it was a seaport and a strong
fortress. Its Ypres tower, which
used to dominate both town and sea,
is still standing to remind one of
William of Ypres, who built it centur-
ies ago. But the citizens have most-
ly forgotten him, and call their medi;-
val fortification the "Whypress" tower
without in the least knowing why.
Nov/ the tower no longer frowns on
the sea, but looks over a mile and a
half of marshes between it and the
channel, and incidentally over the
golf links. The streets of Rye are
all uphill, winding and so narrow that
from the windows you can almost
shake hands across them.
No man ever shares his self-sntis-
faction with any one else.
REMEDIES USED BY MILLIONS
Truth About the Popular "Proprietary
The recent campaign against the
use of proprietary medicines, conduct-
ed in the columns of The ladies'
Home Journal and Collier's Weekly,
has evoked an answer from the Com-
mittee on Legislation of the Proprie-
tary Association. The committee says:
"In considering the question raised
by recent attacks upon proprietary
medicines, every reasonable man will
admit that there is a wide and legiti-
mate field for the manufacture and
sale of medicines already prepared
for general use and easily obtainable
at all times and everywhere. . . .
As a matter of fact these medicines
are not patented at all, and the popu-
lar use of the word 'patent' in connec-
tion with them is a misnomer. Ary
pharmacist will tell you that practi-
cally the only 'patent' medicines in
use to-day are those which are manu-
factured either by foreign or domestic
pharmaceutical houses, and which are
now almost exclusively dispensed by
physicians or designated by them in
"The medicines which are now the
subject of wholesale attack by Mr.
Bok and Editor Hapgood are the old-
fashioned family remedies properly
described as 'proprietary medicines.'
They are the favorite remedies among
millions of people all over the coun-
try; and, notwithstanding the con-
stant effort of some physicians to cre-
ate prejudice against them, no one
ever yet heard of any of the millions
of users of such remedies asking for
legislation or other action adverse to
Girl Didn't Count
This tale comes from New Cale-
donia, where a ship was loading up
with natives to work in Australia:
"There was a man and a girl—a young
couple, they seemed. She had a
'youngster, who began yelling at the
sight of the boat. 'Can't take that
youngster!' the boss shouted. The
woman said she wanted to come, too.
'No, we can't ship that squalling lit-
tle beast. Leave him with his auntie.'
There was no auntie in sight. So
the Kanaka man after taking a look
around, caught the kiddie by the
heels, swung her around like a rab-
bit, and dashed her head agin a
tree. 'She was only a girl, anyway,'
he said, and slung her body into the
scrub. Then they both hopped into
the boat and were shipped aboard.'
If we could only see what is best
for ourselves with as keen and ready
a foresight as we see what is good for
others, how much more successful our
lives would be!

Brushed Scales from Face Like Pow-
der—Doctor Said Lady Would Be
Disfigured for Life—Cuticura
"I suffered with eczema all over my
body. My face was covered; my eye-
brows came out. I had tried three
doctors, but did not get any better.
I then went to another doctor. He
thought my face would be marked fcr
life, but my brother-in-law told me to
get Cuticura. I washed with Cutlcara
Soap, applied Cuticura Ointment, and
took Cuticura Resolvent as directed.
I could brush the scales off my face
like powder. Now my face is just as
clean as it ever was.—Mrs. Emma
