Tomorrow is Arbor day according
to the proclamation of Governor C.
S. Deneen and the schools and the
people of Rock Island and the state
in general will observe the day de

fall will make the planting of trees
no simple or especially enjoyable i
task. Regarding the advent of Ar

"Tomorrow is Arbor day, the offi
cial tree planting period of the year.
The people are urged to make special
efforts Friday to deny themselves
the customary fish diet and with the
funds so perverted, purchase young
trees which can be planted in advan
tageous spots on the front lawn or
the boulevard. In this manner, when
the vast forest tracts and areas be
come depleted of timber, every good
citizen who has lived up to the pre
cepts devised for this day, will be able
to fell a sturdy oak or hemlock in his
own back yard and secure enough
planks to mend the fence or build a
new chicken coop. The school chil
dren have been taught the signifi
cance of the day. It has for years
been the practice to beautify the
school grounds by tire addition of
trees to the general landscape ef
fect. This process is worked out on
a cooperative plan. Each child is per
mitted to lift a shovelful of earth
from the ground, and then to return
same after the tree has been properly
set, thus instilling in their young
hearts the "help one another" spirit,
and incidentally saving the janitor a
great deal of superfluous labor, which
thus far has never been recognized
by the school board as worthy of an

DARKEN THE HAIR
A Little Sage and Sulphur
Makes Gray Hair Vanish A
Remedy for AH HairTroubles.
Who does not know the value of Sage
and Sulphur for keeping: the hair dark,
soft and glossy ana in good condition ?
As a matter of fact, Sulphur ia a
natural element of hair, and a deficiency
of it in the hair is held by many scalp
specialists to be connected with loss of
color and vitality of the hair. Un-
?uestionably, there is no better remedy
or hair and scalp troubles, especially
premature grayness, than Sage ana
Sulphur, if properly prepared.
The Wyeth Chemical Company of
New York put out an ideal preparation
of this kind, called Wyeth's Sage and
Sulphur Hair Remedy, in which Sage and
Sulphur are combined with other valu
able remedies for keeping the hair and
scalp in clean, healthy condition.
If your hair ia losing its color or
constantly coming out, or if you are
troubled with dandruff or dry, itchy
scalp, get a fifty cent bottle of Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur from your druggist,
use it according to the simpledirections,
and see what a difference a few days
treatment will make in the appearance
of vour hair.
All druggists sell It, under guarantee
that the money will be refunded if the
