lmportance of Knowing Worth.
"Knowledge is power" is forci
bly illustrated in the great powe
that would belong to the farme
o- manufacturer if he just knev
the value of his product. Eterna
vigilence is not only the price o
liberty; it is the cost of knowi
edge-the knowledge of what C
thing is worth. The most im
portant knowledge for a farme
is to kuow what he is worth
Not what he is worth in dollar
and cents, but his worth as .
business asset of the comunitiity
in which he lives. The 'estinaft
would not he just and right if it
did not include his physical
mental, moral anud intellectua
ability. Every citizen ought t(
.be diligent to keep a correct esti
mate of his own worth on tles
lines. It requires the most care
fil attvintioi. He ought to b
as cortain and careful about it a.

already knows of how litti<

any one- else. It' will requir
muoh consideration, earnest an:
careful thought for him to forii
a correct estimate of his ow'

Do you like it? Then why
be contented with it? Have
to be? Oh, no! iJust put on
Ayer's Hair Vigor and have
long, thick hair; soft, even
hair. But first of all, stop
your hair from coming out.
Save what you have. Ayer's
Hair Vigor will not disappoint
you. It feeds the hair-bulbs;
makes weak hair strong.
