one Telephone in the city of Lawrence, if such condition
can be brought about so that the interest of the city and
patrons of the telephone can be protected.' This resolution
was introduced and passed by unanimous vote at the meet
ing of the Lawrence Commercial Club last night and
expresses well the general opinion of the business men of
the City." (Ottau Republic, March 14, 1922)

DARKEN THE HAIR
From the time when uj.-id wandered

the cane has never entirely gone oot f
fashion. The modern exquisite would
feel as much at sea without it as did
the beau of whom Steele's Tatler
spoke In 17e. wheu it said that the
cane had "become as indispensable as
any other of his limbs" and that with
"the knocking of it upon his shoe,
leaning one leg upon it or whistling
upon with his mouth he des not know
how he should lee good company with
out It." It may be flattering to the
vanity of such a one to know that the
grotesque and arabesque bemads that he
delights in displaying on his walking
stick are lineal descendants of the
carved l.aton that the fools and Jest
ers of the middle ages wielded.

He Invented "Grog' and Gave a Name
to Washington' Home.
Few Americans are informed as to
how Mount Vernon, the home of Wash
ington, received Its name.
The unfortunate Duke of Monmouth
had a secretary named Vernon, a pru-
dent, sensible man of business, who.
j after the duke's death, found favor iu
Influential quarters and under William
III. bex-ame a secretary of state. He
left a son, Edward, born iu le,34. who,
greatly against his father's wishes, en
tered the navy and, serving with dis
tinction, rose to the rank of admiral.
Id 1722 be was elected to the bouse of
commons, and having, in July, 173D. de
clared there that Porto Bello might
be reduced with six sail of the line, be
was sent with a squadrou to fulfill hU !
prediction. On returning home sue- i
cessful be received the thanks of both
houses and the frt?eidoin of the city of 1
London. From that time, however, his ,
star declined. An expedition to Car- ,
tagena, made two years later, signally '
It was in the land for.e at Cartagena
that Lawrence Washington. George's
eldest brother by fourteen years, had i
served, and apparently he esteemed
Vernon, as he gave his name to bis
home on the Potomac, and procured a
midshipman's appointment for George.
His mother's interposition ultimately
prevented the boy's availing himself of
Vernon's popularity was so great that
his unlncky expedition does not seem
to have affected it. as be was actually
elected to parliament for three places
on his return. Probably his known hos
tility to the government had much to
do with this. In 1745 be was detailed
to watch the North sea. in view of the
movement of the pretender's adher
ents. The next year a serious squab
ble arose between hitu and the govern-
inent. resulting in his producing two
pamphlets that so exasperated the au-
thorities that by the kings express ,
command be was struck off the list of
admirals. He died in 17.17. 1
It was Vernon who brought into use j
the custom of mixing water with the
ration of rum. which got the m. me of
grog from his habit of wearing n gro- ;
gTam waistcoat, and hence his nick- j
name of "Old Grog" To summarize,
the man who invented gros is buried i
in Westminster abbey, commemorated j
by Smollett and gave a name to W'anU- j
inglon's home. j
i Because of the blasting being car
! ried on in the improvement of the
j Mississippi channel at Rockiugham,
Iowa, the United States engineers'
: office in this city has issued a warning
to nil captains of steamers to hug the
Illinois shore in passing that point, to
avoid any possible danger from flying
The steamer Quincy of the Streckfus
lines, arrived in the city yesterday,
enroute from St. louis to St. Paul, just
24 hours late. The boat reached the
local harbor at 2:30 yesterday after
noon instead of Monday, as provided
for by the schedule. The reason for the
delay was the exceptionally heavy
freight shipments made on the first
jtrip, necessitating long waits at every
port to load and unload cargo. The
Quiticy s'attccl its season two weeks
late, and during this time the freight
had accumulated in every warehouse
along the river. It is expected that
the packet will be aide to resume its
usual schedule in a few days, when a
normal state of affairs is reached.
Poison Killed Professor.
Bloomington, III., June 19. Cyanide
of potassium in large quantity was
found yesterday in the stomach of Dr.
Harold Wheatstone Johnstone, Indi
ana's "Big Eight" representative, who

iwas found after the family had de
cided to hold an autopsy. The report
;is in the hands of the coroner.

Restore Faded'and Gray'Halr
io Natural Color Dandruff
There Is nothing new abotJt the Idea of
using Sage for restoring the ardor of the
hair. Our grandmothers kept their hair
dark, glossy and abundant by the use of
a simple "bage Tea." Whenever their
hair fell out or took on a dull, faded or
streaked appearance, they made a brew
of Sago leaves, and applied it to their
hair with wonderfully beneficial effect.
Nowadays we don't have to resort to
the old-time tiresome method of gather
ing the herbs and making the tea. This
is done by skillful chemists better than
we could do it ourselves; and all we
have to do is to call for the ready-made
product, Wveth'a Sage and Sulphur
Hair Remedy, containing Sage in the
E roper strength, with the addition of
ulphur, another old-time scalp remedy.
This preparation gives youthful color
and beauty to the hair, and is one of
the best remedies you can use for dan
druff, dry, feverish, itching scalp, and
falling hair. Get a fifty cent bottlo
from your druggist today, and you will
be surprised at the qnick results. All
druggists sell it, under guarantee that
the money will be! refunded if tho
remedy is not exactly as represented.
