It? but there are those who would go
to considerable trouble to acquire a
new crop of hair, and some of them
have tested this recipe. It -was tried
on a dog at first. He was wofully bald
as to his back, from the effects of a
hot water shower bath, and whether
with the idea of Improving his com
plexion, which was of a sickly hue on
the bare spots, or whether tho applica
tion of the blacking was made by acci
dent, Is not explained. However, the
animal soon began to Improve In looks,
as a now assortment of hair of the
correct hue came in to stay. He is
the property of a prominent politician
of this city and naturally ljad an am
bltlon to not detract from his mas
Since that time several Scranton men
who prefer hair to a marked intellect

to "take notice" with a view to con
tracting another marriage, have used
tho shoe blacking restorative with the
most satisfactory effect.

Ceremony Performed in the Provi
dence Presbyterian Church.
One of the most brilliant weddings
that has taken place In North Scranton
for some tlmo occurred last evening In
the Presbyterian church on North Main
avenue. The contracting parties wero
Miss Helen Louise Hurlbutt, daughter
of Jlr. and Mrs. Henry Hurlbutt, and
George Anderson, both of North Scran
ton. In preparation for the event the
church was elaborately decorated with
golden rod. At the altar a bower of
"Golden Hod" and plants had been
made which presented an admirable
appearance. Punctually at S.10 o'clock
the bridesmaids, Bliss Ruth Jackson,
Miss Frances Hurlbutt, of Unadllla, N.
Y.j Miss Carrie Faulkner, of Wnverly,
N. Y and Miss Mary Thorpe, of Gil
bertsvllle, N. Y., appeared at the side
entrances of the church and inarched
to the main entrance of tho church,
where they were joined by tho bridal
party. A wedding march from Lohen
grin was then executed on the organ
by Mrs. John McDonald.
The bride, leaning on the arm of her
father, marched down the aisle to tho
altar, where they were met by the
bridegroom. After an invocation by
the Rev. George E. Guild, the simple
wedding ritual of the Presbyterian
church was observed by Mr. Guild.
Miss Margaret Bentley acted as maid
of honor and John Athorton attended
the groom. The ushers were George
R. Jackson, Thomas Athorton, Frank
Brewer and Benjamin Thorpe, of Gll
bertsvllle, N. Y.
A reception followed at tho homo of
the bride on Putnam street, which was
followed by an elaborate supper served
by Caterer Hanley.
Mrs. Anderson was until recently a
teacher In the public schools and is
well known and highly respected. Mr.
Anderson is employed at the Delaware
and Hudson sales olllce. They will
leave today on an extended trip through
the state of New York, nnd on their re
turn they will reside on Putnam street.
