DON'T WASH YOUR j
HAIR WITH SOAP
' , |
When you wash your hair, don t j
use soap. Most soaps and prepared
shampoos contain too much alkali, ;
which is very injurious, as it dries
the su;lp and makes the hair brittle.
The best thing to use is .just plain
mulsified cocoanut oil. for this is
pure and entirely greaseless. It's
very cheap, and beats soaps or any
thing else all to pieces. Yod can get !
this at any drug store, and a few
ounces will last the whole family for
Simply moisten the hair with
water and rub it in, about a tea
spoonful is all that is required. It
makes an abundance of rich, creamy |
lather, cleanses thoroughly, and
rinses out easily. The hair dries <
quickly and evenly, and is soft, fresh
looking, bright, fluffy, wavy and easy
to handle. Besides, it loosens and
takes out every particle of dust, dirt

In making comparisons between the
motor truck and the horse, we are in
clined to place motor truck transporta
tion in direct competition with horse
transportation, totally ignoring the mo
tor truck's superior flexibility, its
business-building possibilities and its
utility in ways for which the horse is
entirely unfitted. When considered in
this broaderscope and the motor truck
is given full credit for all its advan
tages, the comparison takes on the same
aspect as the comparison between the
efficiency of a horse car and a modern
trolley car; in other words, the motor
truck belongs to a new e.a. It is the
result of the demands of modern busi
ness for a better, faster and more effi
cient means of transportation.
The business man cannot afford to
overlook the business-building possi
bilities and the economies that an In
ternational motor truck presents.
GERMAN MISSION'S JOURNEY

Rome. March 24.—The Italian gov

quest made k<v Germany that a mission

A SUMMARY OF'
Fabrics for the Suit, Waist and After
noon Frock—Mull Poke
New York, March 24.
The buyers have returned from I'aris.
Almost all the Parisian dressmakers
hold their openings, and the buyers
bought their models and hurried them
to the steamers to get them well on
their way before the maritime blockade
should be enforced.
The New York openings occur imme
diately. after the Parisian openings,
merely giving the buyers and their
booty a chance to arrive.
A brief summary of what is shown
from Paris in our openings here in New
Skirts are short and full, coats are
long, three-quarters and very short.
Narrow lower skiTt sections are placed
beneath a wide overskirt which almost
covers this lower section which is often
of chiffon or lace—an odd but effective
feature of summer modes. Simplicity
is the marked tendency in all these new
gowns. The colors are Jess vivid, and
in a crude khaki, biege, sand ami the
numerous plum colors.
The New Basque Waist and Fulled
The high waistline and the normal
one has taken the place of the moyen
age line in many of the models, although
the long line is often expressed in the
girdle which comes down over the hips.
The short round and pointed basques
are combined with fluffy, frilled skirts.
In my illustration is shown a dress made
of striped taffeta. The short waist is
round, with a slight point directly in the
front. The square ( allot neck is a very
much more becoming line at the neck
than the straight Dutch or round neck.
The full skirt is especially attractive
and "summary" with ruffles, which dip
in the front and back, and are about
knee-length at the sides.
For some time the corset-makers have
been making their corsets to curve in a
little at the sides, and give the slightlv
smaller waist effect, and then they
added a little to the height of the corset
and added inserts of elastic to the backs
and fronts. Some of the very newest
models which are being sent out to trv
the market are undoubtedly pinching
the fronts a trifle. It is hard to tell
whether this is a forerunner of what we
may expect in small waists, or merely
a compromise in order to take care of
such a contingency if it should suddenly
come upon us.
Parisian sketches show a strong tend
ency toward straight girdles, which are
worn at the normal waistline. These are
more becoming to the waist that is
"nipped" in a trifle than the one which
is straight up and down.
The dainty muslin frocks, which are
already being made for summer, have
three-inch belts of black velvet ribbon.
The high collSr is very smart, but
Paris has swerved a trifle from her alle
giance to it and is wearing oue which is
high in 'be back and open in the front.
One vei pretty collar which I noticed
was a s jght band of batiste buttoned
in front ith tiny buttons, and, around
the top. our triangular pieces of the
same ed id with narrow lace overlap
ping one knottier around the neck and
falling over the high, boned band.
Lace and taffeta are combined a great
deal for afternoon frocks. One charm
ing dress of taffeta is four yards wide
at the hem. The waist is tight, and
from the waistline begins a band of the
same color, which winds in spiral effect
Rub Omega Oil gently over the plactt

gives quick relief. Trial bottle ioc.
