Ask Composers to Write
Music For State Song
The State Federation of Pennsyl
vania Women has asked all Penn
sylvania composers to write music
for the official State song of the fed
eration. The words, of the song
only one stanza follow:
"Hail Pennsylvania, loyal and true!
Thy daughters consecrate their lives
Birthplace of Liberty,
May truth keep us free.
Dear Pennsylvania, we sing to thee."
The stanza is sung by 55,000
women who are members of the as
sociation. but a new musical setting
is desired because the old one was
that of a foreign national hymn.
Mrs. Frederick W. Abbott, of the
music committee of the federation,
and president of the Nationnl Musi
cal Club of Philadelphia, said:
"We feel sure the musicians of
the State will be interested in pre
senting musical settings, from which
one will be selected, which if ap
proved after a year's trial, will be
adopted by the federation as the of
ficial music to be used at all meet
ings. The committee asks the co
operation of all composers in the
Manuscripts should be sent to Mrs.
Abbott, Room 201, the Bellevue-

<{TTTHAT a delicious cake!" J remarked, as I nibbled at a piece ofl
YY exceptionally good spice cuke. "Yes," replied my hostess, ' "lts
docs taste like 'more,' doesn't it? And will you believe me when!
I tell you I baked it all myself?" 1 looked at her in absolute dismay, for
the last time I tasted spice cake of her making it had been decidedly ordi
nary. "You see," she continued, "I can say whut I will about it without
sounding conceited, for, after all, the credit does not fall to me. No, in
deed! I mixed and baked it just as I always did before, only—and herein"
lies the secret—l used Grand Union spices." Immediately T understood
the miraculous change she had wrought, for the spices you find at tho
Grand Union Tea Company, 208 North Second street, are so superior to
those sold elsewhere that enough cannot be said for tjte results obtained
by their use.
I WAS looking through an old
family photograph album last
evening, and I laughed until I
could scarcely laugh any more.
Truly, I've never seen anything
nvore screamlr.-gly funny in all my
life than the strained, unnatural ex
pressions on the faces of my es
teemed ancestors and relatives as
they gazed at me from out its pages.
And their awkward, uncomfortable
i postures—! I declare, if I thought
! the originals really looked as they
there appeared, I'd start right out to
hunt another family. But I know
they didn't, and, cruel as it may
seem, I lay the blame at the door of
the old-fashioned photographers.
Poor souls, they couldr/t help it—
they did their best. But, if they
could but see the natural, idealistic
portraitures put out by Koshon, our
own artist-photographer, they'd
realize, for the first time, how beau
tiful a photograph can be.
IS there anything wo all desire more than perfect health? Scarcely!
And yet but few of us possess it. Congestion or imperfect circulation,
the cause of many bodily ills, is the robber which frequently steals it
away. Any interference with the free circulation of the blood causes the
accumulation of poisonous substances which are usually washed away.
Pain results and invariably, to obtain relief, we instinctively massage the
affected part with the hand; or, far better, we use a Hamilton-Beach New
Life Vibrator. The applicator, pulsating at the rate of 10,000 vibrations
a minute, brings almost instant relief. It induces a fresh flow of blood,
which breaks up the obstructions and causes the dsease-breeding toxins
to flow away. Don't take my word for it, however. Investigate the mat
ter at the Dauphin Electrical Supplies Company, 434 Market street, where
a complete line of vibrators is at your disposal.
IK you're a trifle inclined to stout
ness, you know Just exactly how
difficult it is to find a becoming
suit. Those that you ordinarily see
in the stores either make you resem
ble a barrel or tit you so poorly that
you'd cut a ridiculous figure were
you to appear in one. So it is with
a sigh of despair that you sally forth
on a suit-searching expedition.
But, cheer up; for relief is at hand.
At the Cloos Shop, in the Penn-
Harrls building, you can tind gar
ments with st the proper lin-es for
those who are stout. Only to-day,
on visiting the shop, I espied a
smart suit of Navy Duvet de Laine,
designed with silk braid and with
soft, furry collar of rich Hudson
seal. To say that it's modish is put
ting it mildly and 1 know you'll be
overjoyed to hear that It comes in
a large size.
|be held to-morrow evening, at t
o'clock, in the society's building, 9
! South Front street.
HAVE you seen the red antf
white truck that constantly
runs hither and thither from
one end of the city to the other?
Of course, you have, for it's the
most unique and noticeable thing of
its kind in townr. And to ask to
whom it belongs is foolish, for no
other establishment other than The
Valel. 404 North Second street,
would think of using such a clever,
as well as practical, method of ad
vertising. It is but an example ol
the many attractive, original means
employed by this progressive group
of cleaners to tell the people, where
to have their cleaning done in the
most thorough way. Through Just
such devices the business has grown
from a $8 business per month to one
of enormous proportions. Where a
single person first did all of the
work, nine people are now em
ployed, and more are coming to as
sist. Which gll goes to show one
thing, and that is The Valet can
clean anything cleanable just as well
as it can be cleaned.
i A RE you one of those diserimi
j l\ natlng persons who feels that
the best is never too good? Or
do you belong to the group of peo
ple who "don't give a rap" about the
►beauty of an object so long as it
serves its purpose? If you are a
member of the former class, you will
surely go to Saltzgiver's Art and
Antique Store, 223 North Second
street, when in search of stand
frames. At no other place will you
find such artistic, desirable ones,
and it is doubtful whether you could
discover such a large assortment
elsewhere. You will surely 1* de
lighted with a new lot of dull, green
gold, as well as with those of an
tique gold, mahogany and platinum
finish. And you will be more than
pleased with the silk backs Mr.
' Saltzgiver uses in framing.
