Long, Heavy Hair?
Then treat your hair well. See
that it is properly fed. Growth
of every kind demands proper
food. Starved hair splits at the
ends, turns prematurely gray,
keeps short and dry. Then feed
your hair. Feed it with proper
food, a regular hair-food. Feed
it with Ayer's Hair Vigor. Thus
help nature all you possibly can
toward giving you rich, heavy,
luxuriant hair. Ask your doctor
about your hair and about Ayer's
Hair Vigor. Follow his advice.

turns per acre Increasing from ?23.SS
In manufacturing the number of
factories Increased 117 per cent., the
disbursements 417 per cent., the
amount of sugar produced 534 per
cent, and notwithstanding the fact
that the cost of beets increased 3G
per cent., and labor and all other sup
plies in proportion, the cost of pro
ducing sugar decreased 16 per cent,,
a very healthy development.
It Is the opinion of the committee
that the growth made by tho beet
sugar industry in the United States'
during the past '20 years fully war
rants every reasonable effort which
has been or may be made to develop
1). The rapid progress made Is es
pecially gratifying when the adverse
conditions which have prevailed are
taken Into consideration and when
our development Is compared with
the early growth of the German sugar
Industry, now the largest of nny coun
try In tho world.
It required 40 years of constant ef
fort (1S40-1SS2) to develop the Ger
man sugar industry from 12,000 tons
to 000,000 tons annual production,
while in 20 years (1891-1912) the
beet-sugar Industry of tho United
States has grown from 0000 to G00,
000 tons. . . .
In addition to maintaining a con
sistent protective duty which exclud
ed cheap tropical sugar, from 1840 to
1003 the German. Government paid to
its sugar manufacturers $:!51,000,'000
in export bounties, and German econ
omists are pleased with the results.
From 1840 to 1910 Germany produc
ed r 1 ,000,000 tons of sugar, valued at
$4,720,000,000, and drew from other
nations ?2,fi00,000,000 in payment for
the 20,300,000 tons of sugar which
they purchased from her. At the
present time German fields not only
supply the 05,000,000 German people
with the 1,350.000 tons of sugar which
they consume, but they yield a sur
plus of 1,100,000 tons for export, To.
which other nations pay $.'.0,000,000
annually. . . .
It must bo conceded that the do
mestic beet sugar Industry has develop
ed under conditions none too favor
able for the expansion of a new,
somewhat hazardous, and highly scien
tific Industry. It requires tin Invest
ment of $500,000 to $3,000,000 In ouch
plant, and much credit should be glv
en to those who have had the cour
age and the confidence In the good
faith of Congress to inves their for
tunes in tho Industry.
Onc-hnlf of tho world's supply ot
sugar has been and is dependent upon
legislation, and had it not been lor
the creation of this additional sup
ply in tho United Statos it Is fair to
presume'' that sugar would bo much
dearer than it is . . .
in tho opinion of tho committee,
to menace or destroy a groit home
Industry which Is overcoming monop
oly by Its competition and an in
dustry which Is tho llfo of our lunu
la i- possessions, all for a prize, tho
maximum size of which under inoHt
favorable circumstances Is United to
11 cents per enplta per annum, would
be worse than folly.
Tho committee is convinced that i
small cut in tho rnto or duty on raw
sugar would bo absorbed by tho re
llnors and would not bo rofloctoO in
the prlco to consumers, and, further
more, that tho only other effort ot
such reduction would be to deplete
our national revenue and retard or
destroy tho further expansion or tho
domestic boot-sugar industry, thus

Tho committee bollevos that an ap
preciable reduction in the sugar
schedule would end tho further de
velopment or the homo beet-sugar in
dustry; would close many of tho
weaker beet-sugar plants; would per
manently destroy tho cane-sugar pro
duction In tho South, and that free
trado in sugar would wreck our con
tinental and a largo portion of our in
sular sugar Industry, thus re-establishing
in tho rellners a complete
nwnopoly ot tho sugar business.
STrom whatever viewpoint th0 qucs
tioji bo considered, your committee
falls to discover wherein tho Amer
ican consumer could be assured of
any direct benefit by reason of n re
duction of the duty on raw sugar, or
any compensation for arresting the
growth or or destroying an industry
which already contributes $15,000,000
annually to American Industry, and
which possossos such potentiality Toi

Tho committee Is convinced that the
goal or cheaper sugar for American
consumers can bo reached most quick
ly and suroly through the addud com
petition which would result from tli
further expansion of tho domestic
beet-sugar Industry, and that the di
rect nnd Indirect honollts accruing to
tho funnel' by ronsoti of such expan
sion would bo of groator valuo than
the entire sum wo expend Tor sugar.
To make oven a slight reduction
of duty on raw sugar, or In any iiiun
nor to indicate to prospective sugar
development capital that our govern
mental policy concerning the further
expansion ot- our beet-sugar Industry
Is not fixed and unwavering, would
bo Inimical to the welfare of tho Na
tion. Because ot tho fart that the Dutm
standard and differential paragraphs
of the present sugar schedule yield
no revenue, and because of tho fur
ther fact that their removal would not
work a serious hardship to our home
I producers, your committee begs to re
port n substitute bill which abolishes
tho Dutch standard and the differi-n I
