Are You Satisfied
with Your Hair?
Hair 45 Inches Long, and Very Thick
"About a year ago my hair was coming out. very fast. I bought a bottle of
Ayer's Hair Vigor to stop this. It not only stopped the falling, but made the hair
grow very rapidly, until now my hair is 45 inches in length and very thick. I send
you one of my photographs, which shows just what your Hair Vigor has done for
me." Mrs. A. Boydston, Atchison, Kansas, July 25, 1899.
Hair 64 Inches 'Long, and Very Fine
KMy hair is nearly 64 inches long, of fine quality and very thick, as you will
see from my photograph which I send you. I am asked many times a week how I
preserve its beauty, and I always reply, c By using Ayer's Hair Vigor.' As a hair
preserver and beautifier I recommend it to all." Jessie Fraser, Fine, N. Y., Jan.
Hair 65 Inches Long, and Very Dark
My hair was falling out very fast, was rapidly turning gray, and was very
harsh and dry. I tried several hair preparations, but they seemed to do more
harm than good. I then tried Ayer's Hair Vigor. Soon my hair began to be soft
and glossy ; in a short time it stopped falling out, and all the old color was restored.
Then it commenced to grow very rapidly and is now 5 feet 5 inches long. I enclose
my photograph." Mrs. Lydia Kuykendall, Claremont, 111., Aug. 13, 1899.

of the Two Xotes.
Washington, Oct. 21 The State Depart
tftent to-day made public the correspond
rtnoe which has taken place between Itself
Jmd the French Government elnce the origl-
I pal French note, respecting China, which
laid down the terms suggested by France
!ua basis of negotiation for a settlement.
! This last correspondence consists of two
botes exchanged between Secretary Hay
and 31. Thlebaut last week, putting In
formal shape certain verbal statements of
Importance respecting the negotiation.
An Interesting and Important feature of
the United States' note Is the closing sugges
tion that the Powers bind themselves again
to preserve Chinese territorial Integrity
and to maintain the "open door" exactly
the objects aimed at In the British-German
agreement, or alliance, which was made
fjmbllc last week.

Correspondence. Chinese Affairs, October 17 I,

Qovemroent of the French Republic Respect
ing the Baees for the Settelement to Be Kfgo-
tlated by the Towera ana the Chinese Govern
ment. I The French Charge d' Affaires to the Secretary

titty UjuXu &k-M6 dot

Embassy of the French Republic to the Unite!
States. Waihinston. Oct. 17. IJW. The f!ov em
inent of the Republic has hlKhlr appreciated ths
response which the Government ot the United
States has made to Its note or the 4th of October;
It has been especially gratifying to it to utwerve
the sentiments of sympathy for Francs which.
havp evltie-ntly Inspired that reply.
All the interctfed Toners hate adhered to the
essentia! principle ot the French ncte. In so far
as concerns the points which have called forth
comments on the part of certain Cabinets, they
could, it would eeem. be dicus-af-d among? the
Powers or between their diplomatic representa
tives at 1'ckln In the course of the negotiations
and receive such modifications as might be Judged
recessary in order to more surely and EpeedUy
attain tne common f no.
The essential thin; now is to show the Chinese
Government, which has declared ltlf ready to
negotiate, that the Powers are animated by the
same spirit, that they are decided to respect tlo
integrity of China and the independence of its
Gowrnmet.t. but that they are none the less re
solved to obtain the satisfaction to which they
have a right.
In this regard It would seem that If the propo
sition which has been accepted as the ba-ds of
negotiations ere communicated to tho Chinese
Plenipotentiaries by the ministers of tho Powers
at Pekln or in their name by their dean, this
step would be of a nature to hate a hippy influ
ence upon the determinations of ths Emperor of
China and his Government.
It Koes without saylm? that this collective step
would In no wlka interfere with the examination
of tho points in the Freuch preposition, to which
tno reservations named by certain Governments
The. Minister for Foreign Affairs would lx par
ticularly happy to learn that this I. also ths
opinion of the Ireldent of the United State
and of the Honorable Secretary of SHate. and
that they have thought 1t opportune to send to
ths ilinlster of tho United states in I'eStin In
structions in this sense.
Th Secretary of 8tat to ths French Charre

Memorandum In response to the memorandum In
regard to the base an con duct of negotiations
fcr a settlement of pending questions between
ths Powers and China, delliereu to the Secretary
of Stats by tho French Charge d'Affalres, October
The Government of the United States Is grati
fied to learn that all th Interested I'owers have
adhered to the essential principle of the Frncli
note of October 14. and trusts that uch reserva
tions as they hav e suggested will, like those men
tioned in the reply of the United States, prove no
embarrassment to the progress of the negotiation.
In the course of which they can be frankly dis
cussed with a view to a common agreement.
Holding, as It does. In accord with the French
Government, that the essential thine now is to
prove to the Chinese Government that the Potvers
are ready to meet In the rath of peaceful ne
gotiation and that ther are united in their re
peatedly declared decision to respect the integ
rity of China and the Independence of Its Govern-
ment. while equallv united in the resolve to ob
tain rightful satisfaction for the grat wrrngs
they and their nations have suffered, this Gov
ernment has instructed its Minister in Pekln to
concur In presenting to the Chinese plenipoten
tiaries ths points upon which we are agreed as
the Initial step toward negotiations and towarl
the re-establishment of the effective power and
authority of the Imperial Grvernment.
The Government of the United States believes
that the happy Influence upon the determinations
of the Chinese Emperor and of his Government
which the Government of the French Kepub'lc
anticipates as the result of this step, wuuld be
still further Induced If the Powers were to In
clude as psrt of their Initial declaration a col
lective manifestation of their determination to
preserve the territorial Intecrltv and the admin
istrative entirety of China, and to secure for the '
unmese nation ana rtr tnemeives tne inelits
of open and equal commercial intercourse between
the Chinese Umpire and the world at large.

and many who belonged four years ago to

letters, addressed to J. A. Beckett, who. In
1SS0. bupjiorted McKinley. but who this year
win support Bryan and the Democratic

"Chicago. 111.. Oct. 15. ISdO. To Mr. J. A.

Thero never was n time In our hlstors- v. hen
there was the opportunity to work for our

members of your council nnd seo If It woul.j
not be possible to reorganize the council In
your city. Get together, elect vour officers
and make a report to the State secretnrv.
Tha expense to -you will be nothing, as n"ll
per capita tax and charter fees will be re
mitted to you up to 11.
"We are up to our ears, as wo always
should be. In this campaign, nnd we find
It very hard to accomplish what we ought
when we consider the number of members
who have taken the obligation, simply be
cause we have no organization In mnnv

as secret as possible; go about It very quiet
ly, and let no one, except thoe whom von
take in, know that there Is such a ttiin.r
us nn A. P. A. council In our city. It
would not be necessary for you to even rent
a hall at first; get together In one ot the
friend's houses or offices. The principal
thing Is organization nnd a head to work
from. In the first place, get out your rec
ords and paraphernalia; keep your old mem
bership roll, of course. Then, when the time
comes for political work It is easy to reach

Politically fpeaking, sterd.iy was a
stormy day lor the St. Ixuis County Itepub
llcars. Tile Horn) w.is cauted by th Mrst
meeting of the County tVntnil Committee
since the famous anli-Hencl;en manifesto
was Issued last Friday, In which twenty
eight of the mo-it prominent business men
of the county appealed to their fcllow-Ho-publlcaii-.
not to support Kdmund C. Hrnck
cn in his shrievalty aspirations.
The meeting caused a large crowd to col
lect at Clayton, and the rarty whip was
cracked vigorously by the leaders of the
Isen-Hencken faction, who now claim io
be the consistent stleklrs for regularity in
cour.ty He-publican circles.
The lcadars or this faction decided that
the best way to offset the bad effects of the
antl-Hcncki-n document was to get an In
dorsement of their candidate by the com
mittee. The attempt resulted In Ignomin
ious failure. The meeting of the commit
ted was held behind closed doors, and tho
proceedings were carefully guarded, but
enough leaked out to let tho 'faithful" on
tho outside know that a regular cat-and-monkey
tlmo was being experienced.
It seems that the friends of Mr. Hencken
were afraid to Introduce a resolution asking
for an unqualified indorsement of his can
didacy, but beat around tha bush by Intro
ducing one to the eftect that It was a false
rumor which credited the committee with
not supporting the full ticket nominated at
the recent primaries. A proviso of the reso
lution was that It was to be signed by each
Individual member of the committee.
The resolution met with such strong op
position that ll had to be abundor.cd.
Artnuwiiii Arnold, one of the nesro mem
bers of the committee, refused to be a
party to tuch proceedings and quit the
meeting. His son afterwards made the
plain statement that bis father had bolted.

were adopted by unanimous vote:
"Resolved, That In the Judgment of thse
committees, nnd in accordance with the
uniform practice of the league, the inde

tho most diverse opinions on public ques
tions not connected with civil service re

Chicago. Oct. 2. Chairman Jones of the
Democratic National Committco eald to
day: "I do not believe there Is any doubt that
Mr. Bryan will carry New York. Our
chances for carrying Ohio are better than
the Republicans.' I regard Illinois as an
exceedingly doubtful State.
"Telegrams from the chairman of the
State Democratic Committee of California
..iy we are going to carry California. Ad
vices from that State nwhlle ago were
s-omewhat doubtful as to the result. Mayor
I'helan of San Francisco says there Is no
duiibt about the State.
"One of the cau.-es of this chance ot
sentiment in California is the decision of
Judge Estcs on the Chinese exclusion act.
In which he held that a Chinamen at any
port In the United States could go to any
other port. and. therefore, a Chinaman In
Hawaii could vilt any city in any part of
tho United States, thus practically throw
ing the door open to the free entry of
Chinamen in this country."

"What those receipts did not supply haa

"The floating population is large and diffi

traffic has been the subject of concern and
mature deliberation. In reducing the num

y o tried every baby food on the marker,
besides the cow's milk, but nothing seemed
to agree with him. He suffered from Indi
gestion, until by the time he was months
old he had grown so weak and emaciated
that we didn't think he could live. At last
his rtomach refused to tako anything, and
for three dajs the little fellow was actual

T happened to havo a box ot Grape-Nuts
In tho house, and, getting a teaspoonful.
poured a little hct water over It, letting the,
food stand a few minutes, then, gave tho
baby tho brown water, which had tho

"His stomach retained the food, and after
