To Have Smooth, White,
Soft Skin All Winter
Does your skin chap or roughen eas
ily in tills weather, or become unduly
red or blotchy? Uet me tell you a quick,
easy way to overcome the trouble and
keep your complexion beautifully white,
smooth and soft the winter long. Just
get an ounce of ordinary mercolized
wax at the nearest drug store and use a
little before retiring, as you would
cold cream. Upon arising, remove the
coating with sudsy water. The wax,
through some peculiar attribute, flecks
oft' the rough, discolored or blemished
skin. The worn-out cuticle comes off
Just like dandruff on a diseased scalp,
only In almost Invisible particles. Mer
colized wax stmply hastens Nature's
work. I'sed as required. It keeps the
face constantly free from devitalized
scarf skin and only the healthy, young
looking skin is in evidence. It's the
best treatment known for weather
beaten, aged, muddy, freckled, pimpled
and all unbeautlful complexions.
Some skins wrinkle easily in winter.
There's an excellent remedy In a harm

11.434 HORSES SHIPPED
VIA PITTSBURGH FOR WAR
Pittsburgh, Dec. 15.—Since the bel
ligerent nations of Europe began buy
ing war horses in this country, 11,434
horses have passed through Pittsburgh
on their way to Atlantic coast ports.
They occupied 519 cars and traveled on
fast freight schedules. That the agents
were not in a hurry, however, was
proved by the fact that, while the law
piovided a rest of five hours in Pitts
■burgh, horses were often kept here sev
On such waits tihe animals were
branded with the mark of the country
to which they were consigned. The
first consignments were received here
Octoiber 14, and there are at present in
the stoCK yards several hundred horses,
which will ibe sent east this week. The
horses nre tihe finest that tlie French
and English agents were alble to troy.
Apparently there was no effort at con
cealment concerning their destination,
as they were in some instances con
signed to men with military titles.
