said, stated that he was prompted to

USE COCOANUT OIL
FOR WASHING HAIR
If you want to keep your hair in
good condition, the less soap you use
. the better.
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries
the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and
is very harmful. Just plain mulsified
cocoanut oil I which is pure and en- '
tirely greaseless), is much better
than soap or anything else you can
use for shampooing, as this can't
possibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with
water and rub it in. One or two tea
spoonfuls will make an abundance of
rich, creamy lather, and cleanses the
j hair and scalp thoroughly. The
lather rinses out easily, and removes
every particle of dust. dirt, dandruff
and excessive oil. The hair dries
quickly and evenly, and it leaves it j
fine and silky, bright, fluffy and easy
You can get mulsified cocoanut oil
at most any drug store. It is very
; cheap, and a few ounces is enough to

Hitchcock, of course. That is the only

a grouch you may have gathered unto 1
yourself in the course of a hard day's 1
grind. To begin with, Raymond Hitch-1 ]
cock has a funny personality. The ac-j (
tor himself says that people laugh at. 1 1
him because he has Xapolenic hair audi !
a frog voice. This, and Hitchcock's
ability to deliver funny lines with an;
unctuousnefts that is inimitable, has
made him one of the most popular stars!
of the times, probably the most popular j
on the American stage.

Controversy on Kellerman Film
Boston, Feb. 17.—Annette Keller
man 's film appearance at Maiden has
divided tthe society women of the city
into hostile camps. The larger group
of women declare that certain features
of "Neptune's Daughter" are immod
est and a formal protest has been
lodged with Acting Mayor Rabbins.
"I do not think the high school
boys and girls ought to be offered the
opportunity to see such things," de
clared Mrs. Ralph M. Kirtland, presi
dent of the Maiden Women's Civic
League. Slhe was supported in this
statement, by a dozen other Maiden
women whose words have weight in
Mrs. William Blakeley, wife of May
or Blakeley, after a look at the pic
tures, said: "I told my husband the
pictures were all right."
Judge Bruce, of the Maiden court,
and Mrs. Bruce attended the show.
The Judge said:

envy and jealousy. A moral ig_ taught

A MAN AND HIS WORK
Without Interest in the Task Efficiency
Is Never Attained
A man's luck is as hard as adamant
if he is not in love with) the work he
does as with a maid he woos. It is a
miserable thing to care for one's occu
pation merely because it shuts out the
"thoughts that burn like irons if you
think." Any traMe or profession you
could nanne is a poor affair if it is but
a time killer, a sitap gaip, an cipiate, the
ballast of the dirigible life. Y'ou hear
a man start his work with a faint tap
at "ia cilock stroke, and you hear him
drop it with a loud thud at another
clock stroke, and you know his soul
and his braiin are not alive in the thing
that he is doing. WhyT A thousand
men are a thousand reasons why.
Any man who can be accurately stig
matized as efficient (dreadful world'!)
brings all of himself to the task in
hand. He brings not merely his sixth
sense and his fourth dimension to bear
on h'is concerning handful, but every
bit o«f vital electricity in the storage
batteries of his whole beting. When he
has done his level best he is, as we
ironically say, "played out," and he is
supposed to take a rest, which may as
sume the form of harder labor than
ever in a wholly different field of en
In fact, the man who has formed the
habit of work is never haippy to be idle.
It is no use to extend to him the pros
pect of complete hiatuis in the name of
a vacation. The program of the null
and void would assure him an acute
uneasiness. There is a saying tKat na
ture abhors a vacuum. So real

A Matter of Trade
An American merchant in Guate
mala had a rich customer who wanted
two dozen ties exactly like the one he
wore. The order was sent to a maker
in the United States, who answered
that those ties were out of date, and
sent two dozen of the latest style.
They were not wanted. The merchant
then ordered two dozen in Germany,
where they were made just as desired.
