Fans Will be -on Deck to See Ball Game Mon- day Evening He Was Very Green LOCAL FOOTBALL REVIEW Written Especially For The Herald Weather conditions were once jnorc against football, and there were hun- dreds of disappointed followers of the game on Wednesday, many of whom intended either taking in the Callie trip to Frank, or accompanying the S. 0.

Bennett, K.C., who had been asked to kick-off. The Overseas were trying out one or two new- men, in preparation for their great game with the Westmins- ters next Thursday, and consequently there was a certain amount of strangeness amongst the line. The Sons were without Capt. Holberton, Alcock, Bob and Charlie Chiswick, which fact mattrially affected the combination that the team' has been working up of late.

That is, a piece of mild steel was heated and hammered out till it took the form of a razor blade. Every heating, every hammering, changed the hardness of the 5tceJ_ a much, no man could tell, but more in some parts than. because these parts were hammered out more. Naturally, to temper perfectly a blade" of such uncertain and uneven hardness Is impossible. In making GILLETTE blades we start with an ingot of steel, too fine in quality to stanci forging, whoae composition we know by analysis. We roll this out to the thinness of the finished blade, then stamp out the blades ready for tempering.; The composition of the steel is not altered by the-rolling and stamping as it is by forging, so that each blade comes out not only even in texture but of the same quality every other blade. As our patented automatic tampering process tempers each blade through and through in precisely .the same wayrithe finished blades have an even, uniform hardness which cannot possibly be equalled in forged blades. Two of the hardest, keenest, smoothest shaving edges the world has eve? seen are found on each and every GILLETTE blade. Not only is the GILLETTE the safest, quickest, most convenient and only adjustable razor, but it carries the best edge.
