HOW SHE EXPLAINED.
During the trial of a case in the hust?
ings court Wednesday an urnusing inci?
dent occurred that caused a genernl up?
roar that was for the time being nlmost
uncontrollable. A very black neuro wo?
man was on the witness stand and in the
course of the cross examination it seemed
rather (Ufllcnlt for one of the jurors to
"catch on." In order to mako things
more plain and to the point the colored
damsel left the witness stand and went
over to where the juror sat aud threw her
arms around his 'neck and in this way
demonstrated the point she was trying to
explain. It was a very peculiar situation
for the juror, who evidently regretted be?
ing made the laughing stock of the entire

WHAT IS THOUGHT* OF IT.
A Times reporter saw a number of the
leading druggists of the city yesterday In
regard to the Sunday hours recently
adopted by thein and they say that "A
Father," who published n communication
in The Times yesterday.is laboring under*
a misapprehension in reeard to the relig?
ious element forcing them into this ob?
servance of the Sabbath. They claim that
the matter originated among themselves
on account of the long hours and close
confinement which they and their clerks
are compelled to undergo. They have
made it unanimous, and every druggist
interviewed by the reporter is-heartily i 1
favor of adopting the Sunday hour sys?
tem and they sincccly hope to receive
the hearty co-operation of the people of
the city. A number of physicians were
seen regarding the matter and it is safe
to say that a mi jorlty of them arc in fa?
vor of adopting Sunday hours. I % seems
to be the general impression that when
once adopted that the people will learn to
conform to these hours and it will not
work a hardship upon anyone. It seems
that public sentiment is 'argfly in favor
of the move made by the druggists.

It's the best thing for the
hair under all circumstances.
Just as no man by taking
thought can add an inch to
his stature, so no preparation
can make hair. The utmost
that can be done is to pro?
mote conditions favorable to
growth. This is done by
Ayer's Hair Vigor. It re?
moves dandruff, cleanses the
scalp, nourishes the soil in
which the hair grows, and,
just as a desert will blossom
under rain, so bald heads grow
hair, when the roots are nour?
ished. But the roots must be
there. If you wish your hair
to retain its normal color, or
if you wish to restore tho lost
tint of gray or faded hair use
