Announce their Golden Anniversary
FOR SO years the name Cuticura has stood for all that is best in
Toilet Preparations for cleansing, purifying and beautifying the
Skin, Scalp and Hair.
First manufactured and distributed in the United States, they are
now known and used throughout the world, ever-growing demand
necessitating the establishment of additional laboratories for their
manufacture in Canada, England and Australia.
Originated in 1878, the Cuticura Preparations have been able,
through their wonderfully effective super-creamy emollient qualities,
to meet the constantly changing demands of successive generations,
and are today held in highest esteem for all the needs of the daintiest
of modern toilets.
The Cuticura Preparations consist of:
Cuticura Soap Cuticura Ointment
Cuticura Talcum Cuticura Sharing Stick
Each is a highly developed product, with the Medicinal, soothing and
healing properties of Cuticura so delicately and delightfully blended
that they are unique in Toilet Requisites.

Indian Children Ar
Heavier Than WhlUt
When social worker at th Kansas
bureau of child research set out to
make soras Individual growth studies
of Indian children they found th lit
tle brown-skinned Americans so much
heavier than the white children of the
same age that the ordinary hlgh-welght-sge
table did not "fit" them
at all. Through th courtesy of II B.
I'earla, formerly superintendent of
nsskell Institute, federal Indian
school at Lawrence, Kan., data and
measurement were obtained on21,(W7
Indian girls snd boys from govern
ment Indian schools throughout the
country, from which a new set of
table was constructed. Contrary to
what on would expect, the Indian
children were found to be shorter as
well as heavier than their white broth
er and sisters. The Indian boys ran
from one to four inches shorter and
from on to tit and a half pounds
heavier than white boy a, while the In
dian girls were from one to two Inches
shorter snd from on and a half to
four and a half pounds heavier than
their whit contemporaries.
