Saves the Hair
If you want to free, your
head of dandruff and stop
falling hair, you must sooner
or later, resort to Newbro's
By using Herpicide first
save yourself worry, which,
is desirable, you save money
which is a consideration, and
you save your hair, which is
the most important of all.
Why not profit by the ex
perience of Mrs. S. A. Lee of
110 South Fourth street,
Richmond, Va., who writes:
"Four years residence in India
ruined my hair until it was but
two inches long and very thin. I
tried everything in Europe and
America without benefit until I
was induced to use Herpicide. My
hair is now long, soft and silky
and natural color, while before it
was quite gray. My friends never
tire of admiring my hair."
Mrs. Lee's story is a typi
cal history of hair troubles.
After everything else fails,
Newbro's Herpicide brings
relief. It would be just as
effective if used first.
Newbro's Herpicide kills
the dandruff germ and pre
vents falling hair. It stops
itching of the scalp almost
instantly. No matter what
the claims of others, Herpi
cide is the only genuine or
iginal dandruff germ de

Sold by all druggists. Appli

YEAR WJTH THE K. OF P.
Report of the supreme keeper of rec
ords and seal. Knights of Pythias,
shows that the gain in membership in
the supreme domain for 1909 was 2,699,
which is the smallest net gain in many
Out of 56 grand domains, 19 show a
loss of membership. The domain of
Pennsylvania comes in with the great
est loss, showing a decrease in mem
bership of 1,020, while Illinois comes
next, with a loss of 858.
The greatest gain was made in Mas
sachusetts, which shows a net increase
of 1,520, while Michigan is second with
a net gain of 844. The loss of member
ship In Illinois was distributed as fol
lows: Cook county, 354; outside of
Cook, 504. The suspensions in the
supreme domain exceeded the initia
tions during the year by 145.
Many believe that the abolishment
of the semi-annual password has been
the cause of a great number of sus
pensions, by causing the membership
to become careless in the payment of
dues. This is considered a matter of
grave importance and probably will be
taken up and considered by the com
Ing supreme lodge session at Mllwau
The report shows the total number
of members in the supreme domain to
be 706.501, and the total number of
lodgesto be 7.8S6. The total member
ship irr Illinois is shown at 55,876, and
the total number of lodges as 567. This
is a net decrease of nine lodges in Illi

THE MOTHER'S PROBLEM
Of Raiting- Strong, Healthy Girls.
A serious problem which presents it
self to every mother with girls to raise,
in these days. The exigencies of school
life, the hurry and rontine of every-day
duties, the artificial environment of
modern civilization, make it more
difficult to raise strong, healthy girls
than ever In the history of the world
Boys raise themselves. Give them
room, give them liberty, and they will
grow tip healthy at least, without much
worrying. Bnt the girls present a ser
How many mothers there are who are
worrying about their daughters. Ner
vous, puny girls, with poor, capricious
appetites, bloodless, listless, a constant
anxiety to the mother. How shall she
solve her problem? To whom shall Ghe
turn for help? Each case is more or
less a study by itself, and cannot be
solved by any general rule.
This is the way one mother solved the
problem. Mrs. Schopfer, 6920 Prescott
Ave., St. liouis, Mo., in a letter to Dr.
Hartman, says: My daughter Alice,
four years of age, was a pnny, sickly,
ailing child since she was born. I was
always doctoring her. When we com
menced to use Peruna she grew strong
Another mother, Mrs. Martha Moss,
It. P. D. 6, Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin,
says: "Our little eight-year-oia gin
had a bad cough, and was in a general
run-down condition." She had several
docton who could give the child no re
lief, an, the mother no encouragement.
Finally, she got a bottle of Pernna
and commenced giving It to the child,
and it proved to be just what she
needed. When she commenced taking
Peruna the child had to be carried.
Now the mother says she is playing
around all the time.
Her closing words were: "You have
done a great deal for her. She is the
only girl we have, and it meant lots to
ns to have her cured."
These are samples of many letters
which Dr. Hartman is receiving, com
ing straight from the hearts of loving
mothers. While fhe different schools
of medicine are bickering and differing
to. theories and remedies. Pernna
goes right ete willy on giving permanent
relief. After all, it is cares that the
people want. Theories are ot little
tlon, but it was. found that the disease
had reached an advanced stage, mak
ing an operation useless. He was born
in Sweden Aug. S, 1851, and came to
America 30 years ago. He.is survived
by his widow nd four children: Signa,
Marguerite and William at home and
John H. of Everett, Wash. The funeral
service will be at 2 p. m. tomorrow
from the residence on Eighteenth-and-a-half
