precedent of four years ago It will elect
a chairman when It meeU hero Decem

that the election of a chairman, ac
cording to precedents, would not como
Four years ago, Harry New, of In
diana, who had been acting chairman,
was elected chairman at the December
meeting. NoV, John F. Hill, of Maine,
Is, acting chairman. The committee is
comrontea wun tho interesting ques
tion, whether to elect a chairman or
let the matterdrift as it Is now.
The probabilities are tho committee
will conclude not to elect a chairman.
Tho reason for this is that Mr. Hill
has no support to speak of for chair
Vnan, and if there is an election he will
mj displaced. . This would probably
mean a big fight. Tho friends of Presi
dent Taft are anxious to avoid a row.

Superintendent of Playgrounds In tho
District, a school for Boy Scout masters
will be opened tonight at the Carnegie
Library, The rules for scouts will be
taken up from the beginning, and tho
various topics will be discussed and ex
emplified. Ono of the first things for a boy

TO QRO W HAIR ON
A BALD HEAD
BY A SPECIALIST
Thousands of people suffer from bald
ness and falling hair who, having tried
nearly every advertised hair tonic and
hair-grower without r,nit hmm w..
slgned themselves to baldness and its
attendant discomfort Yet their case is
not hopeless; the following simple home
prescription has made hair grow after
years of baldness, and Is also unequaled
for- restoring gray hair to its original
color, stopping hair from falling out,
and destroying the dandruff germ. It
will not make the hair greasy, and can
be put up by any druggist: Bay Ruin,
six ounces; Lavona de Composee, two
ounces; Menthol Crystals, one-half
drachm. If you wish It perfumed, add
nun o one teospooniui of To-Knlon
Perfume, which unites perfectly with
the other ingredients. This prepara
tion is highly recommended by physi
cians and specialists, and is absolutely
harmless, as it contains none of tho
polnonous wood alcohol so frequently
found In hair tonics.' Do not apply to
tho face or where hair is not desired.
Before publication we presented this
prescription to People's Pharmacy and
O'Donnell's Drug Store, 904 K street
northweBt, this cltv. and they Btale
that they havo filled It many times
for their patrons, who report most oj
tonlshlng results from Its use.
