I read this week in a popular
medical magazine, that the people
had been “fed up3 on, health sug
gestions in public print, from so
many hundreds of writers,—that
they had become tired of it all; just
such a mess of theories on diets and
nutrition, and the conduct of one’s
self—that Mister John X. Public had
about decided that there was noth
ing in any of it.
I am sorry of course, for such a
state of mind to come about. Most
every written article by a thought
ful, competent advisor is worth read
ing and thinking about these days.
You can take the part of it that ap
plies to you individually, and brush
the rest aside. Jk
Now, here’s a practical tmng:
Everybody likes a good complexion;
thousands—possibly millions of dol
lars are spent annually by our splen
did American women, just for cos
metics, “skin foods,” and blemish
removers. Let me give you my
remedy—rather rule—for keeping a
When you leave your bod in the
morning, visit the lavatory the first
act before you dress. Wash the face,
neck and even the upper chest with
warm water and mild toilet soap.
There are many good brands of the
latter—I emphasize a mild—not
a strong—soap. Use a soft, smooth
lowel for this part, wet with the
warm, soapy agent.
After completing this act, turn on
the cold-water faucet and seize your
rough towel. Go ofer the parts you
have cleansed, with brisk rubbing—
the /glow will surprise you, after a
feyv treatments. Don’t prolong the
pool friction—rather hurry; work
fast. No soap. <
In time this will give you the fine
complexion you like to have. If you
are generally run-down—but that is
another matter—see your doctor.
You don’t need to BUY you#1 color;
get it the right way. Men, quit us
ing those hot towels at barber-shop.
Tyi above plan.
MORB ABOUT ALCOHOU
No good physician is a “wet” in
the accepted meaning of the term.
Yet there are people so unreason
able that they hold other opinions
j than their own in outspoken con
! tempt. I am as “dry” as the driest
i of them, but I am not against any
, thing that I can use for the benefit
! of my patient.
I overheard a United states senator
I say in a radio speech that, alcohol is
la narcotic; that it is in no sense a
stimulant; that it should be treated
| by law as opium is treated. He
claimed medical authority for his
When people tell me that whiskey
is not a stimulant to aged and de
bilitated patients, they do not speak
truth. I know better. It is a stimu
lant to nerves, heart and digestion.
It revives the warning body when
exhausted from any cause. It is a
valuable aid in treating diseases of
the aged. One would as well say
strychnia is not a stimulant, but a

out alcoholic stimulants, or any oth
er drugs, but we are vastly better
off with them. We could get along
—and let folks die—-without physi
cians; but we don’t. There are no
more deadly things than fire-arms,
but the policeman must carry them
for protection. The good physician
should have everything at his hand
for dealing with the enemies of life
Because some people haven’t sense
enough to use alcohol for its proper
purpose, is no reason it should be
felonious to use it sanely as God in
tended. * Narrow-minded, fanatical
people are responsible for as many
of our troubles as any drug on earth.
And I have no use for saloons, or for
alcohol as a beverage.

This very old illusion was invented by Indian
fakirs. The secret was unearthed in 1849 by the
great magician, Robert-Houdin. At that time, ether
had just been discovered, and little was known
about it. Houdin claimed that he had discovered
that this new anesthetic could make_people light as
air. To prove it, he caused the subject to rise into
the air and float apparently suspended. He passed
a hoop around the body to show there were no
wires or supports.
There are many, many explanations for this old
trick. One is that the girl wears a concealed harness,
which ends in a socket between her shoulder blades.
This is attached to a piston below the stage. The
piston is pushed up from below, causing her to
rise in the air. The piston is invisible, because it
is covered with mirrors which reflect surrounding
draperies, similar to the background. The magi
cian can pass the hoop over her body because it
is cut in one place. It can be pulled apart for a
second when it passes the piston.
