Jonathan Kins, the "gobbler hunt
r" of the Ozarks, baa a sure-pop cure
for "ager." In a region f the moun
tains where the chills prevail lives the
old man, who won his sobriquet, "gob
bler hunter," because of his prowess
In killing wild turkeys. He Is a man
that Is looked up to In his neighbor
hood. He owns a good farm and his
heart is as tender as his outside ap
pearance Is rough. The poor moun
taineers round about know of this
goodness of heart as do no others.
His corn crib Is open to them If the
winter Is long and cold, and his kind
ness to the hands on his farm Is well
known to all.
But the thing that most dis
tinguishes Mr. King Is his tried and
true remedy for the "ager." He never
tires of telling his shaking friends
about It and never ceases to urge
them to get up the courage to try It
once, just once, and. he assures them,
rney will never have the "shakes"
attain. He tells of his own experiences
with the remarkable remedy In this

How Thompkins' Hair Restorer Cured His Wile's Cough,
While Her Remedy Started the Hair Crowing on
His Bald Pate The Hired Girl's Part.
Here's a story John V. Gates tolls:
"Did yon hoar about Thompkins and
his wife? No? Well. Thompkins' wife
had a cough, so she told him to get
her a bottle of cough medicine. When
he was buying it the druggist re
marked incidentally that he had some
of the best hair restorer that ever
gladdened the head of a baldhoaded
man. Thompkins Is baldheaded, but
he protended he didn't hear. He
bought a cigar and talked politics with
two. or three cf the boys for a while
and Just before he left for home he
said kind of carelesslike to the drug
gist: "Say, old man, got any stuff that's
good for the hair make it er sort
of grow, you know?"
"Oh, yes," said the druggist.
"Well." said Thompkins. "guess I'll
take a bottle. My brother-in-law is a
regular dude ana likes such things.
Tho two bottles were about the
same size, but that wasn't the drug
gist's fault. Thompkins opened thorn
both when he got home. That night
after he had undressed he happened
to think that It might be a good thing
to try a little of the hair restorer. In
the dark he got hold of his wife's
cough medicine and he plastered It

Many persons aver that powder Is
ruinous to the complexion. You will
occasionally meet old ladies with skins
of baby texture and fairness who will
tell you that they have used powder

But their powder was the simplest
preparation. Just a little magnesia and
tine, perfumed with orris root. If the
skin needs extra care a quarter of a
lemon squeezed In a little milk will
be found very beneficial. The face
should be bathed In It morning and
evening. If possible, the face should
never be washed In water. Soap should
only be used at night. It is a good
plan, after washing the face with soap,
to use the curd of lemon and milk, let
