CEP H A LOMETRO N"
THIS beantifut instrument is considered one of the
greatest arid most useful inventions of the age. It
would be impossible by the minutest description to give
a correctidea of its utility. HATS made by it will fit the
most difficult heads, conforming to every protuberance
and depression ot the cranium, thus preventing the un
pleasant feeling of a new HAT, and paintul headache.
We could give you certificates of Physicians and the
experience of the Tradb, but would prefer that all
may examine for themselves. No one can properly ap
pieciate its advantages without having one of our supe
Hats made to order in the most fashionable man
ner, and without extra charge.

barbarians in the fifth century, the luminaries of science
that has shone with such effulgence upon the Greeks '

gloom. The human intellect seems to have laid dormant
during the long and tedious Winter, with no enlivening.
