] Make This Pleasant Cough
| and CoM Bwnedy Yourself,
Here's the recipe:
Into a pitcher put a tablespoonful of
butter, one-quarter cup light brown su
gar. an ounce of fresh, whole allspice
and a pint of Duffy's pure malt whis
key. Let it stand for half an hour;
then add one-half pint boiling water.
Let it stand again for a short while,
and before »ffving stir well and add
the juice of one orange and one lemon.
This is to be served in- a wine glass.

Prompt action on such occasions will
ward off many a serious and oft-times
fjtal attack of bronchitis and pneu
monia, as veil as irritating coughs and
colds.— Adv.

m W. 133 rd Sk, New York City.— "Vhd
trouble my children had befui with several
large, round, whitish patches on the crown
and bark of the head which 1 thought were
dandruff but oa examination I dis
covered that thegr were ringworms. Ai
time elapced they bi|iu to spread and the
itching was terrible. The scalp was of a
whitiah color resembling a patch of dan
druff and when the comb was applied It
would Meed. The Itching was terrible and
it was the scratchtnit that caused the trouble
to spread. I had the hair cut cloae.
"After three months' use of different
remedies without any success I was told
of Cuticura Soap and Ointment and decided
to give thaiu a trial. I had the scalp well
wallied with the Cuticura Soap and tlioa
dried the bead after which I rubbed on the
Cuticura Ointment. Within a week"! saw
marked signs of improvement and in two ,
weeks the trouble had completely disap
peared on all three children." (Signed)

York Ediaon Company wu yerterday
afternoon directed "by (ho Public Serv

cording to investigations conducted 'by
the office of markets, United Wtates De
partment of Agriculture, there was an
increase in the movement of cold stor
age . pples during January as Compared
with December, it is impossible to give
the total quantities of uoxos und oar
i rels in storage on February 1 because
many firms withhold information as to
their holdings. However, it is thought
that a sufficient number are co-operat
ing with the office of markets to- war
rant conclusions as to the total move
ment throughout the country.
Basing estimates upon the returns
from a large number of commercial ap
ple cold storuges and granting the con
ditions for this number are representa
tive of the whole, it appears (I) that
holding on Febhiary 1, 1915, were
2 8.4 pit* cent, greater than on the same
date twfl years ago; (2) That 25.2
per cent, of the total holdings have
been moved since Decein'ber Ist, the
decrease of barreled stock being 25.4
per c<y»t. and boxes 17 per cent.; (3)
That during January 17 per cent, of
'barreled apples and 10-*» per ccut. of
boxed apples were takeu out of cold
storage, the total decrease on the basis
of holdings, Decein'ber 1, beiug 10.6
per cent. ,
It was not thought that the demand
for cold storage apples in January
would bo very much greater than in
'December, owing to the fact, as pointed
out in a previous report, that the large
supply of common storage stock, to
gethei with Christmas purchases, would
restrict the movement of apples- from
cold storage during last month. The
attention of those interested is called
again to the fact that practically all
common storage applus, as a rule, pass
into consumption bv the Ist of Feb
ruary. If this condition has been true
of the preseut season, it is thought that
the movement of cold storage apples
will be very large during .February and
IMarch. The supply certainly is bounti
ful and, as the result of low prices and
a large demaud, it is thought the con
sumption during the next few months
will be sufficient to exhaust the sup
The advisability of moving the
stocks aro rapidly as possible is urged
upon growers and dealers so that the
unusually large holdings may diminish
sufficiently to prevent disaster in April
or May.
