RESTORE GRAY HMR

By Common Garden Sage a
Simple Remedy for Dandruff,
Falling, faded, Cray Hair
The old iJea of using- Sape for dark
ening the hair is again coming in vocue.
Our prand mothers had dark, glossy hair
at seventy-five, while our mothers are
rry tel ore they are fifty. Our grand
mothers kept their hair soft and glossy
with a "Sage Tea," which also restored
the natural color.
One objection to using mch a prepar
ation was the trouble of making it.
This objection has been overcome-by
the Wyeth Chemical Company of New
York, who has placed on the market a
upcrior preparation of Sape, combined
with Sulphur and other valuable reme
dies for dandruff, itching scalp, and
thin, weak, falling hair.
The beauty of the hair depends more
on its rich, even shading than anything
else. Don't have dry, harsh faded hair,
when a simple, harmless remedy will
bring back the color in a few davs; and
don't be tormented with dandruff, itch
ing scalp and loose, falling hairs.
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy
will quickly correct these troubles, and
gjve color, strength and beauty to your

CHAIR NEEDED TO
EASE AGED MAN
Have you an old morris chair which
you would be wlllinz to srtve away If
you knew that it would relieve an aged
and sick man from a constant torture?
Miss Margaret Giles, visiting nurse, is
hunting for such a chair and she cer
tainly has use for it. One of her many
patients, a resident of the west end
of the city whose years and possibly
days are numbered, is so afflicted that
he cannot lie down without undergo
ing the severest pains. He must sit
up night and day and even then be is
far from being comfortable. At pres
ent he is cramped up in a rocking chair
which, while large and comfortable as
rocking chairs go, is still much too
small to spend day after day in and be
comfortable. Miss Giles would greatly
appreciate it if anyone having an old
morris chair would communicate with
her and permit her to use It In making
the declining days of her patient more

was this legend: "Come in without

at will, man did not know
Before foods were cooked everybody
was compelled to chew hia food, for it
was found in a liquid or xiushy state;
and there was not much of it.
In digging up human skeletons,
which must have lived ages and ages
ago, we find that men and women
lived to great age and often died with,
full sets of teeth in their heads.
These teeth were well worn, but not
decayed, and this preservation of the
teeth told a story of good health
which could not be told better by
Thus we know that when there were
no liquid or mushy foods, and when
everybody waa compelled to chew his
food well in order to get the good
there was in it, out of it, he waa more
healthy, and lived longer and kept
his teeth better than he does now.
When did man forget how to eat?
When cooking was discovered and
ple-maklng, and soup, and spices were
invented. It then became easy to
swallow, or "bolt,- the food without
properly mixing it with saliva: which
la the first great necessity of good di
gestion. That Is how everybody forgot how
to eat right. Old folks were in a.
hurry to get hack to work, and little
folks were in a hury to get out to
play; and hence all of them got In
the habit of eating too fast So fast,
that saliva had no chance to mix with
the food; and half of It waa not di
gested at all. 9
We know now that food which ia
not digested, and thus made Into
blood or heat, is liable to rot In the
stomach, or, somewhere in the intes
tines. When the food rots in the
body It poisons the body and that is
what makes a person aick or tired. No
well person should be tired In any
other way than being sleepy. Other
kinds of the "tired feeling" besides
sleepiness means sickness.
Since we cannot always convenient
ly t nothing but raw food, and since '
cooked rood tastes so good to us. how
can we avoid eating in the wrong
way? That U the Important euea
tlon. I will tell you.
just treat the cooked foods, the i
soups, and mushes, and the like. Just
our forefathers were compelled to
treat their raw food; so aa not to be
aick or tired.
Chew everything that is solid for all
it Is worth, and get all the taste out
ioX it before awallowiLOt.
