Mr. C. R. Harvin had but a short time

after placing the money in a drawer his at

later he went to the drawer for the money,
and it was gone.

A case of slow Poison.
A sensation was caused near Summerto
last Thursday by the death of a colored we
man named Lavinia Connors. The suspi

assertions often made by the dcceased th::

months ago gave her a dose of concentrate<

its effects, and found great difficulty in eat

greater difficulty to swallow, and finall;
lost the use of her throat.
Her husband left her immediately afte

ago Lavinia became the mother of a child.
Coroner Rowe was called to hold an in

is best to invest in those business enter
prises near home, and of which you know
something, and not be misguided by such
t ignes fatui. In fact, our great fault is that
we are too easily influenced to believe in
every and all kinds of mush-room repre- s
sentations, and do not, as intelligent people, i1
investigate before enlisting. Probably it n
is owing to the fact that our minds have not
had the great benefit of that training which il

Ayer's Hair Vigor
Renders the hair soft, pliant, and glossy,
promotes a fresh growth, and cures eruptive
diseases of the scalp. Mary A. Jackson,
Salem, Mass., writes: "I have used Ayer's
Hair Vigor for a number of years, and it has
always given me satisfaction. It is an ex
cellent dressing, prevents the hair from
turning gray, insures its vigorous growth,
and keeps the scalp white and clean."
"Several months ago my hair commenced
falling out, and in a few weeks I was almost
bald. I bought a bottle ofAyer's Hair Vigor,
and, after using only part of it, my head was
covered with a heavy growth of hair"
