To Banish Wrinkles and !
Freshen Up Quickly
After a strenuous day outdoors, j
when winds, heat and exhaustion j
have combined to take away one's j
freshness and caused the skin to j
wrinkle and sag—or after a tedious j
or fretful day indoors—one often I
has urgent need for some quick re- j
juvenator. Maybe there's a dance;
on for the evening, er some other j
social event. How in the world can ;
one make herself presentable, look- i
ing as she does? It's quite easy. !
Just get an ounce of powdered j
saxolite and a half pint witch hazel !
at the nearest drug store, mix the ;
two and bathe the face in the solu- :
tion for two or three minutes. Then
look into your mirror and behold ;
the wonderful transformation! '
Wrinkles have vanished, loose, tired
muscles have been rested and
"firmed up." marks of fatigue have
flown, and ' you look so much
brighter and younger you can hard
ly believe your eyes. No one need
hesitate to try this, the witch hazel
and saxolite being so perfectly

Newspaper Canvass Shows
Sammy Schiff Won From
Tiplitz in Six Rounds
In detailing the recent defeat of
Eddie Welsh, of Bristol, by Joe Tip
litz, of Philadelphia, certain news
papers made the statement that Tip
litz had beaten Sammy Schiff when
they met at the National Club a
couple month ago. The mistake was
takep up by the Police Gazette and
a canvass made shows that every
sporting writer who saw the battle
gave it to Schiff, and the Harrisburg
south-paw boxer is now officially
credited with victory over Tiplitz.
Some of the comments were: "In
the semiwindup Eddie McAndrews
had the better of young Joe Borrell
In six rounds; in the other bouts,
Sammy Schiff beat Joe Tiplitz." An
other newspaper account said:
"Sammy Schiff, Harrisburg's leading
representative in the featherweight
list, gained a popular decision over
Joe Tiplitz, of Brooklyn, in a six
round bout at the National Athletic
Association in Philadelphia." In all,
Sammy Schiff has ten or twelve
clippings to prove that he won this
decision without any question. Schiff
is training at present with a view to
taking on some hard bouts in Sep
tember and October.

excess of 105 per cent, of • each
salesman's particular quota for six

Photographs of the prizes were

accompanied the photographs of the
prizes which were sent to the sales

One of the prize winners was a
woman, Mrs. F, M. Nafus. She is the
only woman field representative on
the Elliott-Fisher force. Since she
was employed and assigned to a ter

more bookkeeping and accounting
machines than many of the male
members of the force.
The prizes are classified into four
groups—los per cent, of quota, 125
per cent., 150 per cent., and 175 per
cent; and over. Several of the sales
men exceeded the 175 per cent,
mark. A Flint, Mich., representa
tive made 2,Tx>7 per cent, of his May

ing machines to the Buick Motor
Car Company. A Chicago salesman
earned 262 per cent, of his quota on
a single sale to a large public serv

the prize contest, a Washington rep
resentative sent in an order for
forty-five bookkeeping machines for
keeping stock records in govern

The Show at Paxtang gest an excel

the park playhouse. Glllett's monkeys
will be the feature attraction In
what is probably, one of the funniest
Simian acts on the stage. Mr. Glllett
calls his act Monkey Shines in a
Bowling Alley, in which he intro
duces Adam and Eve, the only mon
key bowlers In the show business.
These two star monkeys are as
sisted by a troupe of four handed
comedians that are putting over
some new stunt every minute they
are on the stage. K1 Uota, America's
foremost xylophone artist, will play
a return engagement at the park this
week. El Cota has played Harris- 1
burg many times, is always a wel- |
I come visitor among those who en
joy good music.
Mason and Gwynne, two exception-!
ally clever black-face comedians,
will be seen in a most laughable
comedy sketch entitled "As in the
South Lady." This is an act that
will surely please those who ap
preciate real negro humor.
Others that will be seen on the
park bill this week are Belle Costel
1° in character songs and Green and
Adams, comedy acrobats.
On Thursday evening there will be
another big free fireworks display at
Paxtang. During the past few sea
sons fireworks shows have been a
regular attraction at the park, and
one that seems to be highly appreci
ated by the public. The displays in
the past have been first class ex
amples of the pyrotechnic art and al
ways draw large crowds.
Mrs. Harvey Walters, of Rose
