MAKES HEALTHY HAIR.
Healthy hair is a possession enjoyed by very few. Hair that
lacks luster, is dull, brittle and uneven is unhealthy. Unless the
cause of this hair sickness is removed the hair dies and comes
out. A . sick ha.tr root placed under a microscope presents the
appearance shown in the lower left hand picture. Such hair is
jar from beautiful.
"My hair waa full of dandruff, faJfJ and falling out from
using bleach and dys on it. I began to use Herplolde over
a year ago. Now my halre Is very thick and soft. I can't
say too much for Newbro's Herpiotrte."
Detroit, Mich. MISS MADGE ELTON,
Jan. 27th, 1910. 47 Champlain St.
There is no surer way to have healthy, beautiful hair and lots of it than to use Newbro's Herplcide
regularly. It destroys the germ that causes dandruff, keeps the scalp clean and healthy " and the hair
grows strong and luxuriantly. Healthy hair is always beautiful and is denied only to those who are
Sick hair is but'one stp removed from baldness and is a condition with
which it is not safe to trifle. A reliable remedy is needed and that rem
edy is Herpicide.
It JKilis the Dandruff Germ. Stops Falling Hair.

Wben In need of such a remedy don't be persuaded to buy something
"just as good" as Herpicide. There is nothing just as good. Newbro's
Herpcide is THE ORIGINAL REMEDY.

modations. The road men brake men,
engineers, firemen and conductors
especially are anxious to locate in Sil

Lay Cornerstone Tomorrow. Plans
for laying the cornerstone of the
Eagles' building on Sixth avenue and
Fourteenth street tomorrow afternoon
have been completed. The program
will be arranged soday by the com
mittee In charge. Mayor Andrew Ol
son will deliver the address. An ef
fort was made to secure the service

Fifth Avenue Plans. The plans of
C. I. Josephson, who retains 50 feet of
the Browning lot now: -xicupied by
Mrs. S. D. Poole's art studio and the
Uvery barn, contemplate a . business
Structure fully aa modern as those
hich the People's Savings Bank and
Trust company and Pi err & Co. will
erect. His plans will mature about
the same time that the plans of the
other two concerns are to be ready
probably next year. The building will
be not less than three stories, and it
may go higher. He will devote spe
cial attention to securing a 6how win
dow for the display of his line that
will be surpassed by none. These
three owners are all favorable to the
widening of Fifth avenue, and plans
are again under way to add 10 feet to
the width of the thoroughfare. It la
rumored that the Joe Ullman property
will be secured by parties who plan
a skyscraper structure. If six and
eight story buildings are to rise the
avenue will be ruined if the width is
allowed to remain at 450 feet, argue
Interested property owners. Steps
will be taken by the merchants who
will locate on Fifth avenue to have a
special system of lighting. Cement
posts, set at distances of 40 feet, are
favored; these posts to support clus
ters of flaming arc lamps.
TELEGRAPHING 50 WORDS
AT THE COST OF 10
Xew Night Letter Telegram Inaugur
ated by Western Union.
Business men and the public gen-'
erally are greatly pleased with the
new night letter telegram, inaugurated
by the Western Union Telegraph com
pany. One may now file for night
transmission a message of 50 words
or less at the daytime rate for 10
words. The message is delivered
early the following morning. The
public Is Indebted for this Innovation
to the 'American Telephone & Tele
graph company which, late in 1909,
acquired a very substantial Interest
In the Western Union Telegraph com
pany. It is not generally known that
a telephonic conversation can be car
ried on over the same wire over which
a telegram Is being coincidently dis
patched, without the slightest inter
ference one with the other. A' study
of the possibilities of cooperative use
of the equipment of both companies
is now in progress, and it is antici
pated that this will lead to other in
novations quite as conducive to the
public welfare as to the economical
advantage of the companies them
selves. One of ,ths most interesting
financial documents of the year is the
annual report of the American Tele
phone & Telegraph company for the
year ended Dec. 81, 1909. It shows
net earnings of the company for the
year amounting to $30,190,765. For 28
years past, the dividends have "never
been less than 7 per cent annually,
while for the past four years they
have been 8 per cent The report
shows a marked reduction in the
amount of convertible bonds outstand
ing $101,861,000 of the ' $150,000,000
sold has been banded in for conver
sion, leaving outstanding Dec. 81, 1909,

this had been further reduced by near
ly $4,000,000. One of the astonishing
facts presented is the statement that
the entire outstanding capital of the

company represents actual cash paid

the premiums received from the sale

Springfield, ni., April 9. One per
son was killed and 13 were Injured
here vesterdav when a freight train
smashed into a street car. Of the in

It is said that the accident was caused
by the fact that the freight which
struck the car was scheduled to pass
at an earlier hour than it did and that
the street car men. therefore, had no
thought of danger being near.
Acting on this theory, it was said
