"About a year ago my hair was
coming out very fast, so I bought
a bottle of Ayer's Hair Vigor. It
stopped the falling and made my
hair grow very rapidly, until now it
is 45 inches in length."-Mrs. A.
Boydston, Atchison, Kans.
There's another hunger
than that of the stomach.
Hair hunger, for instance.
Hungry hair needs food,
needs hair vigor-Ayer's.

the passage of the above resolution,
and that a copy hereof be sent to the
mayor and chairman of the county
board of control."
The resolution under which the
State i oard requested the Charleston
0lliials to alippear before the board was
dopted .1ly: 3d. It reads: ''Re
solved, That the riayor and chief of
police of the city of Charleston arc
hereby accorded the privileges, and are
o reiietsted to appear at, the o1ilce of
tle State boai of directors in Co
Itum11bia, S. C.%, on the 16th inst., at 10
o'clock a. ill., to show cause if any
they have, why the dispensary profits
accruing to Said city should uot he
withhiell uler section 9 of the dis
Iim.ary law. to be used fo the better
encoreeient, of said law."'
The board gets authority for its
action froi the following section of
tispensary law: 'All profits, after
paying all expenses of the county dis
penlsary, shall be paid one-half to the
lkIati~l)il corpOration inl which it imay
he lcated, such settlements to be
made quarterly: l'rovided, That if
the aut horities4 of any town or city in
tile judgineit of the State board of
control do not enforce the law, the
State board inay withhold the part go
ing to said town or city, and use it to
Pay Slate constables or else turn it into
the county treasury."

the country, and, for the matter of that,
in every part of the Englisi-speaking
world. E1(dowed with immense phy

and his eloquence had a commanding

when the air is full of electricty the ex
