A Belled Buzzard.
Mr. S. A. Shorter, of Clarendon
county, captured a belled buzzard
about six miles below Summerton a
few days after the big storm that
swept over that section a few weeks
ago. The buzzard had evidently been
injured in the storm as one wing was
broken and it could not fly. The bell
had some initials, which were undeci?
pherable, and "W. Va., 1896" scratch?
ed on it. The bell was fastened on
the buzzard's neck by a small leather

J REVOLUTIONISTS IX NICARAGUA, i
Defeat President Zelaya's Forces In
Important Engagement and Also
Capture Another Post.
Bluefield, Nicaragua, Oct. 24.?(By
Wireless via Colon)?The tug Bianca,
which has arrived here from Grey
town, brings news of the first impor
i tant battle of the revolution. Gen.
\ Chamorro's forces fought an engage?
ment on Friday with 1,000 of Presi?
dent Zelaya's troops at a point below
Boca San Carlos, on the San Juan
river. The r. volutionlsts won a de?
cisive victory, 100 of the government's
troops being killed and 30 wounded.
Gen. Chamorro's losses were slight.
The insurgents captured two Krupp
siege guns and 400 rifles.
This defeat for President Zelaya
will doubtless have a deterrent effect
upon recruiting for the government
service at Managua, and is likely also
to bring additional reinforcements to
the standards of the insurgents. Gen.
Chamorro is now advancing slowly.
The steamer Yulu, belonging to the
Emery Company, also has reached
here with the details of the capture
by the revolutionists of Cape Graclas
a-Dois. The port was easily taken,
not more than five or six men being
killed and a small number wounded.
This gives the revolutionists control
of the entire Atlantic coast.

Gray Hair Restored
My hair was getting quite gray and falling out rapidly
and I was troubled with s terrible itching of the scalp.
My head was full of dandruff, which fell upon my clothes
and kept me continually brushing it off. While on a
visit to Rochester I heard of your Sage and Sulphur
for the hair. I got a bottle and used it. A few appli?
cations relieved the itching, my hair stopped fall?
ing out and gradually came back to its natural color. It
is now a nice dark brown color, soft, glossy and pliable.
Several of my friends want to use it, and I want to
know what you will charge me for six bottles of it

Grew Hair on a Bald Head
For two or three years my hair had beefl
falling out and getting quite thin until the top
of my head was entirely bald. About four
months ago I commenced using Sage and Sul?
phur. The first bottle seemed to do some good
and I kept using it regularly until now I have
used four bottles. The whole top of my bead
is fairly covered and keeps coming in thicker.
I shall keep on using it a while longer, as I
notice a constant improvement.
