established firms of the city, and is
popular in club circles and in society

HAINES, Or., Axis. IS- I have read some
where that sum trapacanth composes the
body of most hand lotions and that it is not
beneficial. Would like to know your opin
ion before making up a recipe which a
friend has recommended.
Please answer in the daily. The formula
is 1 eill alcohol, 1 g-111 glycerine. i ounce
sum tragacanth. K. M. K.
I dp not know anything particular
against gum tragacanth in hand lotions
except that it adds to the cost without
doing any particular good beyond
giving a pleasing "body" or "texture"
to the lotion. Alcohol and glycerine
alone make a good lotion, and may be
perfumed if desired. Equal parts, as
in your formula, will not suit all skins.
Experiment a little with varying pro
portions until you find one that suits
yours. Never mind whether or not it
suits your friend. You may need to
dilute the mixture with rose water.
Personally I find that fdr my own skin
the "equal parts" lotion you quote is
only tolerable if applied to wet hands.
Consequently I dilute mine. I also
add a little boric acid solution (which
I hnd sents my skin) and a few drops
of tincture of benzoin, if - I want a
cloudy "creamy" mixture.

are a revelation to me." This was the
verdict of a socity matron who went
to Meier & Frank's store to hear Mrs.
Sara Tyson Rorer.
Salads were demonstrated and some
splendid recipes were given by the ex
pert. The value of salads as a food
and tonic was fully explained by Mrs.
Rorer, who deftly made the delicious
and artistic-appearing dishes. There
was Swiss fruit salad, Havana cheese
salad, .Swedish carrot salad, Japanese
salad. French and other dressings
were marvelously concocted in "the
twinkling of an eye.
Mrs. Rorer so systematizes all she
does that she is enabled to act quickly,
never taking an unnecessary step. She
advocated making salad dressing the
day they are used, not in making them
up several days ahead.
The attendance yesterday was as
large as the day before, about 1200 be

her notebook and pencil and was busy

Over Proposed Ordinance,
On the ground that it is in the form
of an occupation tax. Commissioner
Dieck yesterday protested against the
passage by the Council of the proposed
ordinance prepared by Commissioner
Baker providing a license fee of 960

ing the public from unscrupulous

because the proposition of regulating

3 AVe have long sought a Piano which, while very moderate in
price, was thoroughly dependable, whose quality never varied
from year to year from the standard previously determined upon,
and which was worthy of our guarantee. Not finding this Piano
in the market, we have had it built for us by one of the largest
Piano Manufacturers in the United States according to
our own specifications, under our supervision, and subject

instrument in the market. The prices at which it is sold make this
impossible. We do, however, confidently recommend the Aldrich
as an honestly built product, which will give the purchaser ex

the Aldrich Piano is built and the excellence of the materials
used, that, at the price, it represents the biggest value in the
