There are numerous Beaver Lakej

of ribbon with its enids hanging rag

city has a mayor whose name is Cad

The dredger was visibly embarrass

a joke inl the beginning. Some of the
men in the gang I had been working
with were forever playing practical

"I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor
for over thirty years. It has kept
my scalp free from dandruff and
has prevented my hair from turn
ing gray."-Mrs. F. A. Soule,
There is this peculiar
thing about Ayer's Hair
Vigor-it is a hair food,
not a dye. Your hair does
not suddenly turn black,
look dead and lifeless.
But gradually the old color
comes back,-all the rich,
dark color it used to have.
The hair stops falling, too.
