Washington. The supreme court
Monday heard arguments on an ap-
plication for writs of prohibition to
restrain Federal Judges Campbell
and Cotteral of Oklahoma from Issu-
ing injunctions against the enforce-
ment of the prohibition laws of that
state. The application was filed on
behalf of the state of Oklahoma by
Senator Bailey and F. S. Caldwell,

of Injunctions is to prohibit the state
from invoking the power of its own
courts for the purpose of judicially
determining the status of liquor
brought into Oklahoma through in-
terstate commerce prior to the time
that the police power applies as pro-
vided by the Wilson act.

junction proceedings before the fed-

Really it is good taste and skill that
makes the home homelike. That dainty
touch is worth twice as much as money.
Wall paper is expensive- it costs money
to buy it. to hang it and again to re-
move it. With the u^e of the alabastined
wall there is only the slight cost of the
material—any one can brush it on—and it
is not necessary to wash it off the wall
when a fresh coat is required.
It is very easy to mix, very simple to
npply, but the results are simply beauti-
ful. A whole house can be done at just
a little more than the cost of a single
room when ordinary materials are used.
And this is true, that now that we have
so much better materials for Use in the
decoration of our homes, that wall paper,
common kalsomine and paint are now as
much out of date as the old time white-
