"SHINY" PAT FOLKS
One of the fat, woman' chief griefs
in life it her shiny, greasy akin. If
It be pimply beiides, as it probably
ia (or may be), her cup of anguish it
full, Powders and cosmetics limply
hide these horrors' for a season a
very thorl teason. They are not a
cure for them. There isn't any cure
for them except getting rid of the
greae beneath. When the does that
she finda her complexion improve!.
In thi way only can I account for
the clear, natural complexion acquir
ed by those who use the Marmola re
ceipt: One half ounce Marmola, 1-2
ounce Fluid Extract Cascara Aroma
tic, 3 ounce Peppermint Water. By
causing the excess flesh to be absorb
ed, it clean the blood of the globules
oi tat which, physician say, cause
the greasy, oily skin of the over-fat.
This simple receipt makes a mix
ture both pleasant and harmless- It
catnei neither wrinkles nor stomach
disturbances. It is also quite inex
pensive. Make it a point to ' try
some; take a teaspoonful after meals
and at bedtime for a week or two and
see if your oily skin doc not quickly
disappear. A you lose your fat your
complexion should progressively im
prove, and after a month or so, when
you have lost 25 or 30 pounds or
flesh, it should be nearly perfect.
Fort Columbia entertained last even
ing in honor A Mist Winifred Hig
giii', and Lieutenant Richard Pailta,

same evening, The house of Captain
and Mr. Percy Willis was prettily
decorated for the occasion and a de
lightful time waa had by all.

statement which goes with abso
lutely no qualification or reservation.
It applies also to players, playwrights,
and managers just why 1 aonx
know, unless, as I said before, clean
liness of all kinds is a tremenduous
factor in final success. And by suc
cess I. as a manager, am still talking
of dollars and cents. Klaw and Er-
langer's 'Ben Hur and 'Little Nemo'
and William A. Brady's 'Way Down
East' have made more money and will
live longer on the forty-weeks-a-year
boards than any two cleverly written
but suggestively immoral .French or
English or German or American
plays which you or any one else can
name. 'Brewster's Millions' and Pol
ly of the Circus,' both of which I am
proud to have produced, have been,
are now, and will continue to be, pro
ductive of bigger returns than any
two American plays of the present
day which deal with indecency. Miss
Maude Adams is the greatest draw
ing card in the whole theatrical firm
ament. She is more respected and is
wealthier than Madame Bernhardt
which does not mean that Bernhardt
is not the greatest actress of the last
or present generation. 'Florodora,
'Little Johnny Jones,' 'The Red Mil,
and 'Mademoiselle Modiste have
made more money than a hundred
such productions as the 'Queen of
the Moulin Rouge' have or will."
THE VOTING MACHINES.
In many States of the Union, says
A- E. Thomas in "Success Magazine,"
the voting machine has been sub
jected to various elaborate tests. In
some States it has passed these tests
and in others it has proven a failure,
and has been discarded. But whatev
er its triumphs or failures elsewhere,
in no other place has the voting ma
chine proved such a flawless success
as in the House of Representatives
at Washington. In that large legis
lative body the vast majority of the
ponderous Republican majority are
supposed to be what they are officially
called representatives. As a matter
of fact they are voting machines, and
they register the regal will of Speak
Now and then one of these voting
machines is seen to be provided with
a talking attachment which can be
and is turned on and oS at the pleas-
a sort of kintescopic device by the use
of which a series of motion pictures
may be thrown upon the screen of
the national capitol, to the mutual
amusement of the Speaker and the
crowds in the visitors' galleries. And
the whole contrivance is so simply
controlled! Ah! the wonders of mod
ern science! Uncle Joe Cannon! It's
an affectionate title. One wonders
how the Speaker ever got it, and af
ter some deliberation is driven to ,
conclude that it must be because of
the striking similarity between Uncle
Joe and the celebrated avuncular rel
ative of the pawnshop. The legisla
tion of this country, at all events, is
in pledge to Uncle Joe.
