Because they know from experience that the intelligent
use of Herpicide means much to their personal appearance.
It saves and beautifies the hair and in the vast majority
"of cases, adds greatly to its abundance. The presence of
the dandruff germ in the scalp destroys the gloss and beau
ty of the hair, even before the resulting disease becomes
firmly established. Each day that the use of Newbro's
Herpicide is put off makes the repair that much more diffi
cut. Save your hair while you have hair to save.
The intelligent use of Herpicide proves its actual worth.
"I have used Herpicide for several months now and will positively
Mate that it is the best dandruff remover and hair dressing in the
world and I have tried about everything 6old by our local dealers.
Nothing has given such excellent results as Newbro's Herpicide."
MRS. HENRY W. BATHKE,

''Newbro's Herpicide is the best dressing for the hair I ever used.
The dandruff is gone and my hair is growing long, thick and beautiful.

Dealers on Chicago Board of Trade
Must Not Market Grain Else
where at Cut Price.
Chicago, ni., May 20. Directors of
the board of trade have passed resolu
tions forbidding the practice of
certain grain dealers of marketing,
in other cities, grain held in elevat
ors here at lower prices than "the
relative price obtainable on the board

The resolution was aimed at the
dealers who now are closing up a
deal in May option and followed the
action of Tuesday ordering an inves

Conservative estimates placed the
amount the dealers went "long " in

SENSE OF DANGER.
Develepsd te a Marked Degree In Men
Who Work In Minaa.
There la something- a boot mtaes that
appeal to the superstitions of man
kind, writes T. Lane Carter In the
Mining and Scientific Press. One of
the most marked effects be baa noticed
in men who have spent most of their
life In mining- Is a sense of danger that
suddenly ctmes over them. '
"Some would call this faculty the
sixth sense," he writes. "If yon asked
a miner how he knows there Is some
thing wrong he win reply that he feels
It I had a remarkable illustration of
this a Cew years ago.
"I waa walking along a main drift
with a mine captain, a man who bad
been working In mines for over forty
years, having started as a lad In the
mines of Cornwall. Suddenly he
stopped and exclaimed that something

cure. But the captain was not satis
fied and insisted on climbing Into the
stope to investigate. There he found
a large crack, running for hundreds of
feet, indicating a movement of the
strata of serious proportions.
"Had this discovery not been made
in time there would have been a seri
ous accident in the mine, with a prob
able loss of life. I dare say the years
of experience in the mine had develop

called superstition, but which was real

irony there is in that expression when
we look at real conditions that prevail
in this day of enlightenment and this
day of joy on the part of the few.
"Look at the poor- children in the
factories, stunted In their growth and
many times meeting an early death
and all because of the greed of a few.
The condition which the masses are in
is a deplorable one. It is slavery
worse than that which the black man
was forced to endure. This country ia
not yet free. The time Is now ripe j

"The pulpit is only half awake to its
solemn duty. Today we preach wis

elaborate sermons on abstract theories
and dogmatics and feed the'parishon
ers on that kind of nourishment, but
we do not think of what is down be
low. What we should do Is to go out
and come Into actual contact with the
state of things really existing in th
homes of the poor and down trodden

Chapman Case Dismissed. The case
against Dr. W. D. Chapman, retiring
health officer in the village of Sil

court of J. L. Crowder. Dr. Chap

by Dr. A. C. Hansen, who under the
Crawford administration succeeds
Chapman as head of the health de
partment. When the case was called
it was dismissed without prosecu

on the 12th, insisted on taking
charge of a case of smallpox that
had developed in the village. Dr.
Hansen called at the quarantined

THE FLY AND
A mistaken view prevalent in many
farmers' homes is that flies are a nec
essary evil which is confined to a few
summer months, or that they are an
altogether harmless nuisance. The fact
is that where flies have access to im
purities of any sort, they may carry
deadly germs, which they deposit in
crawling over food In kitchen, pantry
or dining room. In an article prepar
ed for the Country Gentleman and now
reprinted in pamphlet form by the au
thor, William Paul Gerhard -writes on
flies and mosquitoes as carriers of dis
ease aud on what farmers can- do to
assist in the campaign against tfcem.
Both typhoid fever and malaria.
! though occurring to some extent In
cities, are considered to be chiefly
country or farm diseases, and flies
may be the indirect cause of typhoid
lioyance to hcrses, cattle and men, a
cause of physical discomfort, and a nui
sance by which health may become ser
In cities the rapidly1 increasing use
cf motor vehicles and the correspond
ing reduction in the number of stable
pits reduces the fly nuisance.
The antiquated and most primitive
methods of , waste disposal still exist
ing on many farms offer favorable con
ditions for the breeding and rapid mul
tiplication of flies. The extermination
of flies can be brought about chiefly by
a diligent attention to a proper dis
posal of waste matter and by the main
tenance of scrupulous cleanliness.

buildings should have constant care

Only the woman who has tried knows
what comfort and relief a New Perfection
Oil Cook-stove brings into the kitchen.
v It is not only that the New Perfection cooks so well.
It saves so much work in other ways. There are no
ashes to clean up before going to bed ; no fire to bank for
the night. Everything is ready for cooking in the morning
at a touch of a match. . v
You are saved from an overheated kitchen ; saved
from soot and dirt ; saved from chopping wood and carry
ing coal. In the kitchen or the laundry, for the lightest or
the most elaborate meal, you will find the New Perfection
stove with the New Perfection oven is the best and most
and attention and they should be so
constructed that they can be looked
after with the best results. Dairy
farmers should look particularly to the
sanitation of the milk houses and all
Its surroundings, and dairy windows
and doors should be screened.
Barnyards should he kept scrupulous
ly neat, gutters and stalls of stable
should be cleaned daily and all refuse
heaps kept covered pending removal.
No decaying material should be permit
ted to accumulate on the household
premises, and the garbage can should
be cleaned and scoured dally and when
In use should be always kept well cov
ered. All wooden garbage boxes or
leaky slop pails should be abolished.
Where there is no kitchen plumbing
donVt throw kitchen slop water, day by

by absolute cleanliness, and the up-to-

Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water
in wet marshes or In any pool or per
manent water accumulation, as in
badly graded irrigating ditches or in
roof gutters holding water; standing
water in large or small volume any
where may breed them.
Mosquitoes are not merely a con
stant source of discomfort, or as .re
gards some species a serious danger
to health, but mosquitoes may also
effect business interests. It has been
asserted that by the attacks of swarms
of mosquitoes upon herds of cattle
their milk yield has been so redused
as to make the keeping of these ani
mals for dairy purposes unprofitable,
Horses are injured- by the attacks of
mosquitoes. It is a familiar fact that
there are tracts of land in various
parts of the country that are made
practically uninhabitable and lmpos
slbte of development owing to the pres
ence of mosquitoes In large numbers
and many places badly Infested with
them have shown a depreciation or
have failed of appreciation In their
property value, so that all mosquitoes
are harmful In one way or another.
Pot mosquito control and extermin
ation there are now employed many
jneane, which are applied by Individ
ual work on one's own premises or by
combined or community efforts. Ob
viously all windows and outside doors
of farmhouses should be carefully
screened to keep out mosquitoes, as
should be also rain water barrels and
other water receptacles; but the breed
bag place of the mosquitoes should be
dona away with, by drainage, by fill
ing In or by treatment with kerosene
oil or similar preparations.
Neighboring fanners should cooper
ate. In farm villages improvement
societies should be formed, one of their
objects being organised war on the
mosquito. The work of such a society
should be laid out and directed by one
responsible head, and It ia desirable
that ha be a practical sanitarian. Much
of the work to be done Is of an engin
eering nature, such as the ditching of
marshes, the proper grading of gutters
and so on, and the assistance of an eng
ineer familiar with dfelnage work is
much to be desired. Each farmer
member of the society should make in
dividual effort about bis own premises,
and these Individual labors should be
supplemented by the combined com
munity effort in whatever direction
may be required.
To get rid of flies and mosquitoes
would protect the farmer's health and
well being and enhance his comfort
and Increase his profits.
