SCIENCE PREVENTS BALDNESS.
The Fatal Germ and Its Remedy Now
Facts of Science...
It is the rarest things in: the world
for a man to be necessarily bald. Xo
man whose hair, is' not dead at the
roots, need be. bald If he will use New-
bro's Herplcide, the new scalp antisep
tic. Herpicide destroys the germ that
cuts the hair off at the root; and
cleans the scalp of dandruff and leave3
it in a perfectly healthy condition. Mr.
Mannett, In the Maryland Block, Butte,
Mont., was entirely bald. In less than
a month Herpicide had removed the
enemies of hair growth, and nature did
its work by covering his head with
thick hair an- inch long, and in six
weeks he had a normal suit of hair.

was one of the members of one of the
Peary parties to Greenland, a few
years ago, accompanying the famous

has long been identified. He took the
magnetic observations on the trip. The

Harry Swickard Saved From Death by
Son's Quick Action at
Conductor ilarry Swickard, who has
charge of the coal run on tlx? Burling
ton between Viola and Barstow, had
an exceedingly close cail yesterday
wliile switching at Alpha. He was
standing on the pilot of the engine,
when his foot slipped and he fell be
tween t ho rails. His son, Arthur, who
was standing in the cab, raw the acci
dent, and grabbing the reverse lever,
brought the locomotive to a stop in a
few feet. When Mr. Swickard was ex
tricated it was found that his leg was
broken and he had been badly bruised,
but had miraculously escaped with his
life. His clothing was torn and ground
where it had come in contact with the
wheels. He was taken to his home in
Myers is Recovering.
Relatives in this city have received
word that Homer Myers, the young
man who was reported to have at
tempted to commit suicide at the home
of his sweetheart in Kewnnee last
week, is on the road to recovery. It is
now learned that the injury was the
result of an accident and not an at
tempt at self destruction.
The Burlington depot and contents
at Garden Plains, 111., a small station
near Savanna, was burned to the
ground Wednesday night.
