the reason? Hair
needs help just as
anything else does at
times. The roots re
quire feeding. When
hair stops growing it fi
acts almost instantly
on such hair. It
awakens new life in
the hair bulbs. The
effect is astonishing.
Your hair grows, be
comes thicker, and all
dandruff is removed.
And the original
color of early fife is
restored to faded or
gray hair. This is
always the case.

Excavations Where a Depth of Tel Feet
Calneh, or Ancient Nippur, where ex
cavations by the University of Penn
sylvania are now being made, lies at
tiic bottom of a great sand dune In
, Mesopotamia-that ls, ancient Baby
lonia, and today-1900-& party of
archaelogists Is delving through the
debris of 7,000 years for the records
that were, made contemporaneous to
old-time reckoning of the deluge. From
the marshy plain surrounding Calneh
the sand dune looks like the key to
the beginnings of history. Standing
amid a clump of Arab mud huts where
"the horses are still of native strain,
and the men- still use matchlocks In
laid with Arabesques, one might figure
a mighty whirlwind of the desert until
it could carry 119 more and collapsing,
finally, on the site of the ancient city.
But In that huge mound are tunnels
leading In and down, and deep rifts
and pits and projecting walls of ancient
cities, and platforms of baked clay, and
stone stairways up which to-day hun
dreds of Arab porters are carrying bas
kets of sand. From the summit of the
pOe one can;look afar off.to the sun
just gleaming above the horizon of the
twentieth century, and then walk slow
ly down toward the beginnings of civil
ization. Walk as slowly as you may,
and at the first dozen steps of descent
you have passed the level bf the Chris
tian era. The baked clay to the right
of you was placed -there by ABhurba
napaL king more then 600 voars be
fore Christ. A few steps further and
at your feet are the markings of
Kadashman-Turgu 1400 B, C Down
again, further, and you are walking
??,1 a platform laid In the time of Ur
Gur centuries before Abraham, the
.founder of the-Jewish nation, was
born. Down, still further down, only a
few feet, and: you aie standing on the
temple platform laid by Sargon I. and
Narlm Sin, 3800 B. C.-Sargon whose
existence even Biblical scholars have
said was mythical-Sargon, whose
name, nevertheless, ls stamped in
every brick. Finally, through a hole
broken In this platform, you may look
down past thirty feet of debris to the
site of ancient Nippur or Oalneh and
see the fragments of arches, sacrificial
urns and altars built at least 4,500 B.
C. The Septuagint, written 250 B. C.,
places the creation of the- world at
tibout 5,500; and with this in mind, it
-is difficult in the nineteenth century to
gaze upon these evidences of man's
handiwork and realize that the work
men lived more than 7,000 years ago.
'?And yet this ls by no means the strang
est feature, for the records of these
workmen show that they lived not
'within a comparatively few generations
'of the beginning of the world, but that
they were part of a civilization as high
ly developed as that of the Greeks;
that men carried on the business of
life in a manner and with ambitions
and desires not very different from
those of our time, and that, most re
markable of all, this state of affairs
had then been going on for many thou
sands of years. Evidence of all this
-ls found stamped on the tablets and
vases which are being unearthed to
day from the ruins of Calneh. It ls
a wonderful story, which probably has
a more important bearing on the be
ginning and end of human life than
anything else recently discovered.

Women a? Artists.

The N'o west Skin?.
Tbe latest nows from Paris is rather
startling as regards skirts. After hav
ing been told that the close fitting
habit skirts were to be fashiouablo no
longer, aud that only skirts with back
breadths gathered or laid in single,
double or triple box pleats were to be
worn, some of the gowns that have
been seeu have had plain backs, and
many of tho new costumes showu for
summer are a Isp BO provided. Where
the entire back is net plain and the
skirt has a deep apron yoke in front,
the yoke at the back will be narrow,
and the effect will be quite plain, with
no fullness at all directly in the back
of over the hips.
The habit skirtB of last season were
not, however, cut quite as are these
skirts, the latter having more fnlness,
which begins, too, nearor the belt at
the back. The truth of tho matter is
that the more successful dressmakers
do not follow slavishly any very
marked fashion, but take some pretty
design and modify it or improve upon
it, to snit the woarer, and in this way
the gown is not simply a reproduc
tion, to the exact line, of a style that
fashion has dictated as correct. At a
recent entertainment at which a num
ber of new gowns were worn, no less
than five distinct styles of skirts were
seen, aliko only in that they all fitted
close around the hips, were full at the
back and very wido round the foot,
with ruffles aud flounces and pleatings
iuside as well as out, giving a finished
look to the bottom of tho skirt. Ma
chine stitching is still a favorite trim
ming for heavier weight of materials,
while lace, embroidery and open work

Ant* Useful in Surgery.
Many useful discoveries have been
made by savage people and utilized by
civilized men for the amelioration of
human suffering. The native Brazil
ian, fnr removed, as he usually is,
from doctors aud surgeons, depends
upon a little ant to sew up his wounds
when he iu slusho'l or scratched. This
odd d enture is called the surgical ant,
from the use to which it is put
The ant has two strong nippers on
his head. They aro his weapons for
battlo or forage. When a Brazilian
has cut himself, for example.he picks
up an nut, prestos tho nippers against
(he wound, one on each side.and then
gives tho bug n squeeze. The indig
nant insect snaps his nippers to
gether, piercing the flesh and bringing
tho lacerated parts close together. The
Brazilian nt that moment gives the
ant's body a jerk and away it flies,
leaving the nippers embedded in the
flesh. To be sure that kills the ant,
but ho has served his most useful pur
pose in life. The operation is re
peated until the wound is sewed *up

A Now Way to Sterilize Milk.
A certain degree of heat kills the
bacteria that promote tub souring of
milk; heuce by raising the tempera
ture of that fluid nearly to the boiling
point it is effectually sterilized. Such
treatment, however, robs milk of its
characteristic flavor, imparta a new
taste to it, robs it of its ability to
yield cream, and otherwise affects it
in an undesirable way. But a method
of conducting the operation has been
found which is said to be free from
these objections, while retaining the
advantages of sterilizing. Niels Ben
dixeu oi Copenhagen has just pub
lished a poper in which he describes
the procoss. He saturates the milk
with carbonio acid before applying
heat, raises the temperature to 120
degrees, and finally removes the car
bonic acid by exposing the milk to
sterilized air. He alleges that milk so
treated forms no skin,does not change
color, and retains the cream yielding
power. Just how the carbonic acid
accomplishes this result is not olear,
but its share in the work is affirmed

SUGAR'S VALUE AS POOD.
Recent Tests by German Experts Give
German scientists have recently been
conducting experiments to ascertain
how far it is safe for people to employ
sugar as an article of diet These in
quiries are not altogether disinterested.
Quite the contrary. Two-thirds of thc
world's supply of sugar is made from
beets, and more than one-third of the
total production of beet sugar ls credit
ed to Germany. Part of this amount
she is able to sell to foreigners. But
the greater part of it she consumes
horself. Now, exportation is liablo to
fall off at any time, and it is highly
probable that the manufacture will
continue to increase. Hence lt is de
sirable, from the German point of
view, to promote the use of sugar ns
far ns possible.? However, this motive
does not impair the value of the In
vestigations recently made. Instead,
it Imparts greater Interest to the latter.
It is a a rather curious fact that, al
though Germany makes an enormous
quantity of sugar, her people are not
the largest consumers of that commod
ity. Statistics for 1897 show that in
England the average amount consumed
per capita was 85.7 pounds a year,
whereas In Germnny only 2G.G pounds
were enten. Americans ate on an aver
age G2.3 pounds. Hence lt would be
practicable to double or even treble
the consumption in Germany without
any appearance of excessive Indul
Still, before recommending a policy
of this sort, it was deemed wise by the
experts to institute elaborate tests of
the effect of a sugar diet The result
is highly encouraging. It has been de
termined that a liberal use of sugar is
strengthening and fattening. One ls
taken aback for a moment by the dis
covery that the latter virtue was de
monstrated by experiments with hogs
and cattle; but this ls a situation call
ing for cold logic, not sentiment
Even before the tests were made
which the American consul at Magde
burg reports to the State Department
nt Washington, lt was known that
mountain climbers regard sugar as a
source of energy. Moreover, the chem
ists say that "lt ls a soluble carbon
hydrate that is easily converted into
warmth and forco." That ought to
settle the question. But tho verdict
was not considered final. Your Ger
man scientist wimts to measure and
compute, and enable himself to state
his conclusions in a mathematical
form. He is still happier if he can em
ploy a substantial piece of apparatus
in his inquiry.
Well, these German savants proceed
ed in the following manner: They re
quested a man to apply his finger to a
device called an ergostat, or force
measurer. He exerted himself to the
utmost to move the Index of the ma
chine. A record of his strength was
made. On a different occasion he was
fed on sugar, and again experimented
with. It then appeared that he could
make a better showing with the ergo
stat than before. ? Another form of
the trial was to let n man ?Ire himself
out feed him with sugar and see If lt
restored his strength more quickly
than abstinence. It thus appeared that
his weary muscles recovered their
power promptly in consequence of eat
The German Government Is said to
be considering the expediency of add
ing six lumps of sugar to each soldier's
ration In the army. But whatever it
decides, it seems to have been demon
strated that the matinee girl who eats
a pound of bonbons during the per
formance of a play will b* able to
reach home in a much les.? exhausted

Attached lo thc Bakery.
A plausible tain of a man who
bought a loaf of bread and took away
more property than he paid for, is told
by the Pawtucket correspondent of the
Providence Telegram. Tho man was
In a hurry to catch a car. ,
His impatience made the clerk ner
vous. She forgot to snap tho string
which bound the paper about the loaf,
and away sped the man with the loaf,
while the string reeled off behind him.
He caught the car all right, and al
though the conductor and some of the
passengers noticed, as he sat down
close to the door, that the twine paid
itself out as the car rolled along, the
man did not discover the tangle uutll
he alighted. In the meantime the con
ductor wns having a good time; as
passengers strimed on the platform he
cautioned them not to walk on that
string, and they did not.
It might have looked mysterious to
thc people who saw the string moving
along the street, for the unraveling
continued until the bakery twine bob
bin had been nearly emptied by thc
connected loaf a mile away. The man
with the bread felt a tug at his loaf as
he stepped down from the car. Then
he followed up the cord, winding as
He was one of those strictly honest
men who want nothing that does not
belong to them; and the best part of
the story is that he followed the string
back, winding as he walked, and in
due time entered the bakery and re
stored the ball of twine.

His Lost Brother's Voice Ia a Phonograph.
On the 14th of May, 1881, George
Hemlngton, a brother of Peter Hem
Ington of Galesburg, Mich., enlisted In
the regular army and disappeared. Per
sistent Inquiry failed to discover his
whereabouts, the only fact to be ascer
tained being that of his discharge for
disability soon after bis enlistment
Three months since Peter was In Kal
amazoo, whero by chance he took In an
exhibition of which a phonograph form
ed a part. Among other features was
a fragment from the play, -"The Three
Guardsmen," during the rendering of
which one of the characters developed
a peculiar and scarcely noticeable stam
mer. Upon the request of Mr. Hem
lngton this part was repeated, and that
gentleman became convinced that lt
was the voice of his long absent broth
er, who had a precisely similar Impedi
ment in his speech. Since the above
occurcnce the clue has been persistent
ly followed, and a few days ago the two
brothers were reunited after nineteen
"Klug" of the Newsboys.
"Davy" Stephens of Kingston, Ire
land, claims the proud title of the king
of the newsboys. His claim ls partly
based on the fact that he has sold news
papers for flfry-foiu- consecutive years,
and partly on the fact that more fa
mous men and women have been
among his patrons than any of his
rivals can boast. Thirty-nine years
ago "Davy" was on the dock when
Queen Victoria landed on her first visit
to Ireland, and sold her majesty a pa
per, receiving In pay a-gold sovereign.
On the queen's visit he was again on
hand and again made a sale at the same
high figure. Almost every great Eng
lishman of the last half, century has
bought papers from "Davy" and
stopped to chat with him.
