In this connection it should be un

votes according to the table of
v»>tcs for rliv frorrftr JafrtotU “Hence, a

from a new subscriber at any time
during the campaign, will count 17,-
000 votes for the candidate, while in
the fourth period the same subscrip

votes, not quite one-third of what they
now are. These figures should forci

value of extensions in this third pe

and state vote figures on any possible
extensions of the last four years from
seme new subscriber who has already
taken tlje paper during the campaign

104,000 votes. In the fourth period
it would credit the candidate with on

results. All the annual conferences
in Episcopal Methodism in the Unit

it will require a three-fourths vote of

it is very doubtful whether the south

Many of the faces rejuvenated
years ago by injecting paraffin under

One motuble case was the husband

herself had been worked back into a

husband underwent the necessary
treatments but the paraffin used to
take dut his checks and jnws slipped.
As the man was well known in
Paris his case was a great tragedy
for the "face lifters.” The demand
for the pnrafifiin treatment became
almost nil. and investigators went to
