HEAD A MASS OF PIMPLES
^Hyattsvllle, Md.—"My little boy wa
taken with an Itching on the scalp.
There was an ashy place on bis head
about the size of n ten-cent piece, and
the hair was falling from this place
by the roots. In abqjit ten days all
over his head were these ashy spots
which looked like rlnjrwonn, but were
porous-like. The ltchtng and burning
made him scratch a great deal. His
bead had gotten so that it was just a
mass of mattery little pimples all
heaped on each other, and when I took
off his night-cap, the hair and flesh
came off at the same time. I really
thought he would lose"his whole Bcalp.
He couldn't sleep for five weeks, it
would Itch and burn until I thought
be would go Into convulsions.
"I used different soaps and salves
to no satisfaction Then I decided to
use the Cuticura Soap and Ointment.
Finally I noticed be began to sleep all
night. I used one cake of Cuticura
Soap and one bo* of Cuticura Oint-
ment and he was entirely cured. He
has a better growth of hair now than
be had at first." (Signed) Mrs. Ida

England's Oldest Bowling Green.
Which is our oldest recreation?
There are not wanting archeologists
who profess to be able to trace reler
ences to football and baseball on
Egyptian moral tablets. However,
when it comes to actual records, the
fine old English game of bowls would
appear to be as old as any.
Southampton, Eng., has records
showing that one of the local bowling
greens was in existence in 1299.
Many interesting customs are asso-
ciated with the game on this historic
green Every summer a "fire jack"
competition is held, and an order of
knighthood is conferred on the win-
ner, who kneels in the center of the
green while the other players gather
round him and the master touches
him with a sword and dubs him "sir. '

To Identify the Corpse.
In the blanks which life insurance
companies provide their medical exam-
iners for use in recording the data of
the examination of the applicant for
insurance, they provide a space for
personal marks which may be used to
identify the insured after death. A
western company recently received a
report from an examining physician
with the following in the identification
blank: "He has a strong Cornish ac-

"When very young 1 began using
coffee and continued up to the last six

and has never returned. This is the

Regular (must be boiled).
Instant Postum doesn't require boil-
ing but Is prepared Instantly by «tlr-

Washington.—Validity of two-cent
passenger laws and maximum freight
rates in Arkansas, Missouri and West
Virginia were upheld by the supreme
court in another series of decisions
In the noted state rate cases. No de-
cision was announced in the Ken-
tucky case. In the Missouri case the
great majority of rates contested by
the railroads as confiscatory were
held valid. State freight rates abol-
ished in Oregon also were approved.
All claims that state laws attacked
interfered with interstate commerce
were swept aside, following the pre-
cedent set in the Minnesota rate de-
cision a week ago.
In the majority of the Missouri
cases and in the Arkansas case the
court held the railroads had presented
too general data on which to base a
claim that their property was being
taken without compensation through
the operation of the new rates.
In the Missouri rate case the su-
preme court held the rates conflsa-
tory on the St. Louis and Hannibal,
Kansas City, Clinton and Springfield
and Chicago, Great Western railroads.
The decision was based upon the
two-cent passenger law and the max-
imum freight law.
Justice Hughes, who announced the
decision, held that the point sought
to be made by the railroads to the
effect that the Missouri rates were a
interference with interstate com-
merce must be decided against them
for the same reasons given by the
court in the Minnesota rate cases.
In each of these cases the decrees
of the lower court in favor of the
railroads were reversed.
Victory for Missouri.
The decision is a partial victory for
Missouri as the lower court had held
the rates confiscatory on all the roads.
In the cases in which the rates
were held confisatory the supreme
court modified the lower court's de-
cree so that the railroad commis-
sioners and the attorney general of
the state may apply to the court for
further action whenever it shall ap-
pear that by reason of a change in
circumstances the rates fixed by the
state's acts are sufficient to yield rea-
The West Virginia two-cent pas-
senger law was upheld as valid by
the court, which affirmed the supreme
court of appeals of West Virginia.
Jutsice Hughes said the question
of interference with interstate com-
merce was decided In favor of the
state for the reasons assigned in the
Minnesota rate decision. No question
of confiscation was presented in the
West Virginia case.
•The Arkansas maximum freight
rate law and the two-cent passenger
fare were also upheld as valid by the
The supreme court upheld as valid
rates imposed by the Oregon railroad
commission, thus affirming the fed-
eral court of that state.
Because of a provision tn the law
arbitrarily fixing $500 damages for
each violation, the court annulled as
unconstitutional the Kansas statute
of 1905 which fixed maximum rates
for transporting oil by rail. The ob-
jectionable clause was held to prevent
railroads from testing whether the
rates were confiscatory.
The supreme court adjourned un-
til next October without announcing
a decision in the inter-mountain rate
cases or passing upon the application
for a review of the Gompers-Mitcbell-
Morrison contempt case.

Sherlock HolmeB might have figured
this out, but he did not!
The average Englishman will al-
ways demand his egg boiled just
three minutes, then he places It In an
egg cup, just large enough to have
the egg fit It, taps the top of the
shell, and removes the broken shell
with his fingers. The egg is eaten a
spoonful at a time.
A Frenchman, much like the Eng-
lishman. likes his eggs of three min-
utes. exactly. He then "peels" tbein,

and butter. He makes a practice ot
dipping bread into the mixture, and
eating it along with the eggs.
A Spaniard wouldn't think of letting
his egg boil mpre than one minute.
He then breaks it, and lets the con
tents run Into a glass, and consumes
it as if he were drinking a glass of
An egg is only fit In an Italian's
estimation when it has been placed
In cold water, and removed just as
the water begins to boil. He then
breaks it, pourB it on a plate, and
proceeds to sop it with bread
The German, like the Italian, de-
mands his eggs as near the liquid
state as possible. He breaks his eggs
In an unsightly cup. and scoops the
liquid out as if It were soup.

Sound Magnifying Trumpet Which
Will Tell You When It Is Time
There is a sound magnifying trum
pet of flat shape, behind which is a
small attachment intended to support
the telephone receiver. When It be-
comes necessary to hold the line,
when calling up or replying, instead of
the person standing with the receiver
glued to his ear he places the receiver
upon the time Baver, bringing the ear-
piece into position with the sound
magnifier. He is then at liberty to
resume his dutioe until such time as
the person required at the opposite
end attends his instrument.
This is notified by the speech trans-
mitter being magnified by the time
saving device so aB to be perfectly
audible at a distance. The receiver
may then either be withdrawn and
held to the ear in the usual way, or
left in connection with the magnifier,
bearing being quite as simple and
easy as under normal conditions. An-
other advantage of the invention is
that the user's two hands are left free
to carry out any other requisite task,
such as the turning up of documents,
making references, writing down mes
sages or instructions from dictation,
and so on.

The complaint in the case was direct-

found to be unreasonable and discrim-
inatory and the reductions were or-
dered to be made by August 15.

Bartsch, aud his net revenue from the

them In fly-ridden sections of the city.
