springtime madness promise this sea
son to surpass anything that has gone
before In tho way of daring and
' Dame Fashion has been having a
confab with Father Noptune and tho
net result Is decidedly "fishy."
One of them Is the mermaid frock,
which Is a close-fitting affair entire
ly composed of pallottes which over
lap one another In tho approved
fish-scale stylo. These pallottes are
of Iridescent ihades of silver, green
and blue. No trimming or ornament
of any kind Is worn with tho frock
and corsets' are doffed so that tho
sinuous mermaid effect Is complete.
Another fishy lad Is tho ftlnllo com
IKised of painted sea shulls. With
this Is worn a head-dress of similar
design, or, maybe, of tinted pearls.
For thoso whoso systems cannot
assimilate too much sea bivozo, n

' MOVIE MOVES
,Boy Star in "The Son of Tarzan''
Never Attended School In His Life
Despite the stringent California
F.chool attendance laws, which arc
rigidly enforced, Gordon Griffith, the
young boy-star, who plays the title
role in "The Sou of Tarzan" feature
serial, never saw the inside of any
kind of a public or private school in
his Hie, except as a visitor.
There is a peculiar law in the Gold
en State which gives the juvenile
cinema actors an opportunity to se
cure an elementary education while
they are earning enormous salaries
in the film studios of Southern Call
loi'niu. Under this law, the produc
ers of photoplays employing children
not only pay the 'salaries .of these
screen lads and lassies, but they are
also required to furnish each child
with a tutor, or lady teacher, who Is
registered by the state, and who is
paid $5 a day to teach the screen ac
tors of school age tholr throe It's.
Tho central bureau In Los Angeles,
Cal., provides these teachers and also
registers the juvenile pluyers.
Gordon Grflffith began his photo
play career before ho was ready for
the primary grade and by tile time
he had attained tho age othjer boys
are learning their ABC's, Gordon was
in such demand ns a child actor that
ho did not enter school, nor did ho
later. However, a certified teacher is
with him four hours every school day
and he has her undivided attention,
which isa service rich parents pav
highly for and photoplay children re-
colvo In addition to their high pay,
which is considerable, as thero are
low really good child actors.
The great jungle picture, "Tho Son
of Tarzan," will be exhibited at the
Casino theater tomorrow.

WASHINGTON, D. C, April 18
Many of the diseases that afflict
mart may almost be said to be made
by man, i,ays the U. S. Public Healtn
service, for they are spread almost
altogether by his .disregard for the
simplest rules of sanitary lving.
Typhoid fever, for Instance, is'
spread by the contamination of wa
ter, milk, and food by human filth
which has been run into rivers or
wells or left exposed for flies to
carry to the kitchen or dining room,
or which even more disgustingly, is
carried to food directly from soiled
Hookworm disease and other intes
tinal diseases are spread, to some
extent at last, by the states which
hIIow road-buildlhg gangs to work
under conditions which too often
compel them to scatter pollution to
be carried by files to their own
kitchens or to be ground into the
soil to be picked up by the bare
feet of children. Practically all hook
worm disease i3 due to soil pol
lution. Malaria, too, .is often spread by
the ignorance and carelessness with
which mosquito-breeding places are
created or 'disregarded. Borrow-'pits,
dug to obtain stone for road work
and other needs and left will fill
with water, furnish homes for thou
sands of wlgglers, culverts Improper
ly placed will produce pools that
are equally prolific; ditches that are
clogged and never cleared out are
popular and populous; railroad and
other embankments that stop pr
check tho flow of water create con
ditions that are Ideal from the mos
quito point of view.
Dr. T. F. Abercroinble, health of
ficer of Georgia, has suggested that
the convict and other gangs who
work along the roads be required
to fill up borrow-plts, place culverts
properly, clean ditches, and attend
to other small but important de
tails that any man can do and that
will deprive tho mosquito of many
of "its breeding places.
To accomplish this -along the roads
is more important than it may seem,
for a mosquito hatched at the road
moment you apply Red Peppor Rub
you feel tho tingling heat. In three
minutes it warms the congested spot
through and through.
When you nre suffering so v
can hardly get. around, just get i;
jar of Rowlo8 Red,, Pepper Rub
made' from re1 peppers. It casts lit
tie at any drug Btore. The quicke
relief known awalats you. Use It al
.ways for cold in chest. Adv.
side does not have to wander in
search of food; all It has to do , la to
wait for food to come to It. More
over, if it is of' the anopheline spec
ies, which spreads malaria, It has
excellent chances both to acquire the
malaria germs and to pass them
along. Until it bites someone who
lias had the disease, its bite, though
no more pleasant than that of. any
other mosquKo, Is not any more dan-(
gerous. But a single malaria patient,
driving along a ditch-bordered, mosquito-infested
road, may provide hun
dreds of the Insects with germs
which they may pass on to every
traveller along that road.
Dr. Abercrombie; by making the
roads of Georgia safe for man, may
materially reduce the malaria hazard
of the state, and, according to the!
Public Health service, his example
deserves to be followed.
