The action of piece takes place in a lunatic asylum, and while it verpes upon horseplay at times, it is funny anyhow and the stuff is new. Hickman and Charles Edwards are the principal funmakers. and four voting ladies constitute a "chorus" with plen- ty of trood looks and iconsiderable ac- tion. Burke -Touhcy nnd cnmyipny Have a rollicking Irish sketch called "The Birthday Party" that is new and con- tains some novel features that please the audience mightily. One of the best features of the act is the real music that Mr. Touhey gets out of a set of Irish pipes. The airs range from Irish ballads to jigs, and brought more ap- plause than.any other feature on the bill. Both men are Kood comedians and their stuff Is all new and pleasing. The La Keillors open the show with an acrobatic act that is nicoly staged and includes some new feats. Lewis Green have a comedy sketch called "Ensrah'ins a Cook" that brings de- served applause and the Caits Broth- ers have, an eccentric song and dance act that is somewhat out of the ordi- nary. Christopher Ponti have an Italian character sketch that is over- done in spots, but gets by in good shape at thnt. and T.andis Knowles have a singing and dancing stunt that is up to the average.

Scopo of Work Outlined. The first speaker called upon was the president of Sunshine Mission board. Robert S. Sinclair who stated that the board had looked forward to this cam- paign with interest. He told how three ago the officers felt that such a Mission building was necessary. They It tie had purchased the. Rudolph building thinking at that time that it was suf- ficient in itself for the work of the Mission, but recent developments had that the gathering was only a family I shown that it needed improvement and party. He gave anyone present an equipment. He then spoke of pome of invitation to call upon anyone else for i the work that is being done in the de- a talk. He then told of the organlza- partments of the mission, the nursery, tion, giving a splendid tribute to the the woman's ward by Mrs. Duncan and one eye was nitiist. Everyone Must Hustle. The next speaker was W. A. Hall, whu said: "What we want to know is how to go out and get for Sunshine Mission. What we wart to do is to raise this money and give it to the board of directors of Sunshine Mission and te'.l them to get busy, and we are going to do it in the redar Rapids ivay.

"and with twelve months In which to pay It there are plenty In the city to subscribe the amount of the ramp'iign." He asked the workers to siife-scst to the people that they not give only a little but to give big for it is for a. big purpose. He asked all to raise their hands who were solns to stay by the job until the full J25.000 was received and the vote was unimmous." The work is not only for Mr. Ward and Sunshine Mis- sion, but for ourselves as said he. The next speaker was Mrs. W. A. Hubbard. president of the Y. W. C.

MAE MARTYN. stated that they expected their new building some T.: From what you soy, I Judge your trouble Is not eczema, but a rash caused by the too profuse use of face powder, and the only remedy Is to em- ploy a good massage cream to thor- oughly cleanse the skin of local Im- purities. A greaseless cream-Jelly of exceptional value can be made at little cost by stirring two teaspoonfuls gly- cerine in a haJf-plnt cold water, and adding one ounce almozoln. Let stand over night, then apply to face, neck and arras and massage in thoroughly. A few such treatments rid the skin of roughness, eradicate pimples arid black heads and dispel sallownesa, while the complexion will take tint and freshness. on a youthful Mrs. B.: I know it is discourag- ing to be over-fat, but tils can be quickly remedied if you buy four ounces parnotls from your druggist and dissolve it in one pint-and-a-half hot water. AVhen it cools take a table- spoonful before meals. Keep up treat- ment regularly until desired weight is reached. Tou will find this method not injure or Inconvenience you in any way, and it will notleave the skin flabby or wrinkled. Q. T.: You can restore the original color to the correct those scalp troubles by using this inexpen- sive hair tonic: Mix together one-half pint each alcohol and water and in this put one ounce quinzoln. Massag- ing the scalp well with this will grad- ually restore the natural tint and glossiness to the hair and put the scalp in a healthy-condition. If you use the iiuinzoin hair tonic it will make the hair come in thick and beau- tiful. Worried: That .ugly growth of fuzz can be permanently removed from your chin by the application of a paste made with powdered delatone and water. After this has been on two or three minutes rub off and wash the skin and the hairs will have vanished. Drug- gists charge a dollar for an ounce- package of delatone, but this cost la u-lfiing. Ruth'Xf.: The insomnia and loss of appetite of. which you speak are caused by an impoverished condition of the blood. What you require is a blood- cleanser and tonic. For a small' sum yo ucan make your own, by getting an o'unce of kardene and a half-pint alco- hol. Dissolve one-half cupful sugar in the alcohol, then add the kardene, and hot water to make a full quart. Take a tablespoonful three times each day and your, natural health and strength will soon return. The kardene is gen- tle in action and quickly rebuilds worn or waste tissues. Edna: A dry, itchy scalp usually follows the use of an alkali shampoo, mixture. This robs the glands of their necessary oils and causes the tissues to die. The only way to restore vi-; tality and banish the dandruff is to shampoo occasionally with plain con- throi, a teaspoonful of which dissolved in hot water is enough for a thorough cleansing. You can, pbtahi an original package of canthrox at any drug store, and you will find that aside fromkeep- ing the scalp in clean, healthy con- dition, it will induce an abundant growth of fluffy, brilliant hair. A. D. The shiny, oily condition of your skin is due to excessive use of powder, which..clogs pores and fre- quently causes pimples, blackheads and other complexion upsets; I would ad- vise discarding powder and employing a plain spurmSK lotldn. This is pre- pared by adding two teaspoonfuls gly- cerine to a half-pint hot water, then stirring in four ounces spurmax.

"We are ready for the said she, "we have been looking for it and the attitude of the people is toward the mission and the amount desired surely will bo rais- icd. One of the Htlle boys of the mission then sang "Where is my Wandering Boy which echoed the senti- ment of the mission work. Must Look After the Pennies. W. G. president of the Commercial, club was the next speaker who expressed the belief that if all the workers go out and work they will get what they are after. "The man who won't go out and work has something the matter with him and his face needs said he. He talked to the wo- men and accused them of not catch- ing the Import of what he said, but that he had one that they could catch: "The peacock is a beautiful bird but the stork delivers the goods." He told his hearers that they should go after the big amounts but should not slight the little ones as they were sure to form a prominent part of the whole. Mrs. E. R. Burkhalter was the last speaker, saying that she wished there were more men like Mr. Ward. "He is a man with a. soft heart and I hope the Lord will keep it as it said she, "for it is through that he has received all his great success." Mr. Bingham then told the workers they could go to work this morning at hour to suit themselves but mads it emphatic that they should be at headquarters for lunch at noon, and in their seats at the table not later than seven minutes after 12 o'clock. He said that no one could work to tho best advantage In soliciting others un- til they had first solicited themselves and requested that all should first make their own subscriptions to the fund and then go after others. Cards were then distributed to the various committees. ply sparingly to the skin and lightly until it dries. You will ___ this nicer than powder as It Is invisi- ble when on, does not rub off, and gives to the complexion a charm and richness Impossible any other way. XX.: Nothing so detracts from beauty like weak, watery eyes, and to using a plain crystos eye.-tonic. You can easily prepare this at home by dissolving one ounce crystos in a pint of cold water. Putting two or three drops in each eye daily quickly re- lieves the smart or ache, sootheis the tired muscles and gives to the eyes a delightful sparkle and brilliancy.
