    Salves don’t work
    The old-fashioned beauty of youthful skin has been of concern to women for generations. Salve after salve has been tried … without success. That’s because eczema is the culprit and eczema is extremely difficult to cure. Now such is no longer the case. Our DDD lotion does the trick. For years, DDD has been sold to dedicated patients all over Europe. Stories of success are myriad. Now we are available in America and we want you to try DDD. Clip this ad and take it to your drug store. For one week only, the pharmacist will be happy to exchange the ad for a small bottle of DDD, absolutely free. Do it now! This trial costs you not one cent and you will soon see the benefits of DDD. 1

    Rodeo date set
    Los Angeles is the place and now there is a date. Breeders Trotting Association and the California Rodeo Commission have jointly selected the dates of July 25th through August 2nd, 1915, for the next big week in international rodeo. In all, nine full days will be jammed with fun, excitement, parades, and competition. The rodeo will feature a street carnival and a horse race open to all comers. Need a ride? The railroad is offering special rates to and from Los Angeles. Just ask for a lift to see the rodeo. Taxis and carriages are available at the depot. The Salinas rodeo will now select dates not in competition with the Los Angeles event.

    Knowles no longer naked
    Joseph Knowles, the Boston artist who spent a year wandering the woods of New England entirely naked says that he has proven what can be endured by man. Knowles said that he was headed west to repeat the feat in the woods near Mount Shasta. Bitter outcries from nearby residents seem to have changed Knowles’ mind about his lack of attire, however. The naturist has stated that he will don a loincloth when around people.

    Carranza and Villa split
    It has been learned that the split between Mexican Generals Pancho Villa and Venustiano Carranza is now complete. Villa considers himself a Rebel while Carranza has gone over more strongly to the Constitutionalists. Villa became incensed after Carranza appointed General Natera, rather than himself, to head the northern force of the constitutionalists. This act, for the first time, made clear the relationship between Villa and Carranza. In retaliation, Villa declared that he no longer answered to Carranza’s orders and he assumed control of Juarez and vicinity. General Chan, formerly in charge of the Juarez area, has gone over to Villa. General Villa wired Carranza to say that he intended to move southward toward Mexico City as soon as his troops had rested. That was considered bad news by the Carranza forces and good news by the American population of El Paso. 2

    Civic Club to serve tea

    Claude Belmont guilty
    It appears to the Pacific Grove Review that in the crime of fraudulently concealing property to reduce the terms of his divorce, Mr. Claude Belmont is guilty as charged. The Review hopes that the court agrees and will order Mr. Belmont to stand trial forthwith.

    Author notes …
    1. Eczema is a form of dermatitis, an inflammation of the skin. The DDD lotion contained a calcineurin inhibitor so it would today have been expected to be about 35% effective.
    2. After decreeing that only civilians could become Mexico’s presidents, Carranza was murdered a few months later by a coalition of military generals.
