TAKE EM AWAY. The Indiana state road, commission has prohibited the usual signs along the three thousand miles of thoro' ughfares under its jurisdiction. The commission believes that the signs usually displayed by business men are entirely worthless to them and that they disfigure the landscape, says The Miami Herald. While not all signs are to be condemned- especially those that are gotten up in artistic design and are properly located, yet the old practice of tacking advertising signs to trees and to fences along the roadway was not only expensive and useless, but was a positive detriment. In these days, motorists do not linger along the way. At the speed they usually travel they cannot read the ordinary sign, and hence its ad vertising value is an absolute zero. Motorists are the chief travelers these Mays, and if they cannot be reached by this mode of advertising nobody can. But it is chiefly owing to their disfiguring nature that the people usually object to the signs. Without having any value, even when new, these signs soon degenerate into rusty pieces of tin or shot-to-pieces squares of boards. And they stay there month in and month out, ren dering no service and yet giving passersby annoyance and pain. In view of the fact that in these days there is ample opportunity to advertise in newspapers, advertising that yields certain results, it seems that this sign nuisance could be abat ed without any damage to anybody There is no way to prevent a mis guided merchant from nailing up a sign on private property, if the own er does not object, but county offi cials can prohibit useless signs along the right of way of the various county roads, and they can begin a reform that would soon be adopted, once it is commenced. Wie are planning for a city beauti ful with the hope that we will also have a county beautiful at some time in the future. One step toward that would be the general discour agement of those individuals who still believe that rusty signs beside the road have a business-drawing power.

Dozens of mahogany, walnut and teakwood bars, tables and fixtures ' from sa loons raided in the Detroit district since the advent of prohibition, a display of highly polished and cost ly wood valued at upwards of $300, 000, may be shopped into firewood ail distributed among Detroit's poor. 0 these bars ; and tables, over which thousands of elbows have been crooked and that in years past have been made to glisten by con stant application of towels in the hands of white aproned attendants may be converted into benches for august judges or into pulpits behind which clergymen will stand and voice the arguments for a saloonless world. While state and city prohibition forces are making up their minds which course to pursue in disposal of the valuable store of wood, rats adn mice are playing havoc with the bars and tables that have been dumped in a heap near one of the city's police stations. Under a state law prohibition of ficials confiscate the fixtures in any establishment found to be dsipens- mg liquors. Lacking a place to store these articles the officials have piled them in a vacant place outdoors, thus creating what the police call the city's "mahogany dump." Judge William M. Heston, of re corder's court, has decreed the col lection be cut into firewood and giv en to the poor. Others propose the water soaked pile be salvaged and that the wood be used to make pul pits and judges' benches. For display purposes the wood is worth a fortune, but for firewood it is no better than the more plebeian varieties. City officials say that to cut the bars into stove wood would cost more than it would he worth for that purpose. Therefore, the proposal of Judge Heston will not be put into effect, for a time, at least. While a solution is being reached the owner of the property on which the "mahogany dump" is located is frantically urging the officials to take it away," as he needs the space ;and also because the "dump" has become the home of scores of rats, r and then slows down to let you eat his duet?

E TEA It's Grandmother's Recipe to Bring Back Color and Luctre to Hair That beautiful, even shade of dark, glossy hair can only be had by brew ing a mixture of Sage Tea and Sul phur. Your hair is your charm. It makes or mars your face. When it fades, turns gray or streaked, just an applciation or two of Sage and Sulphur enhances its appearance a hundredfold. Don't bother to prepare the mix ture; you can get this famous old recipe improved by the addition of other ingredients at a small cost- all reday for use. It js called Wyeth's Saae and Sulphur Compound. This I can always be depended upon to bring ba.-l; the natural color and lustre of your hair. Everybody uses "Wyeth's" Sage and Sulphur Compound now because it darkens so naturally and evenly that nobody can tell it has been ap plied. You simply dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through the hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning the gray hair has disappeared, and after another applciation it becomes beau tifully dark and appears glossy and MRS. DONALD HANNAMAN ; DIED IN SALISBURY , Mrs. Ora Disharoon Hannaman, daughter of Hon. Charles R. Disha roon, of Salisbury, and who was well known and had many friends and rel atives in Snow Hill and Berlin, died I in Salisbury last Friday. Besides hre husband, Mr. Donald A. Hanna man, and her father, Senator Charles R. Disharoon. she is survived by an infant daughter, Cornelia, and one brother, Mr. Walter R. Disharoon, all of Salisbury. Funeral services were held at her late home on North Division street, Salisbury, Sunday ' afternoon at 3 o'clock. Ai number of Snow Hill people attended the funeral. The deceased was a woman of re fined and cultured taste, in manner quiet and even, in disposition kind and gentle. Charming in manner and possesesd of many social graces, she was very popular in the circles in which she moved. But she was essentially a home-maker and it was in that atmosphere that she was. ever at her best. A devoted daugh ter and loving wife, she was the cen ter around which a happy family gathered. She has been callted away, while still in the prime of her life, from those she loved. She was a firm believer in the principles of Christianity and had for years been a member of the Wicomico Presbyterian church. Democratic Messenger. Snow Hill, Maryland.

"I understand now why so many people praise Tanlac, as I have tried it myself and it certainly is a won derful medicine," said Mrs. Delia Kunze, 856 Lill Ave., Chicago, valued employee of the Boston Department Store: "I eat with so much zest and en joyment now that my family really poke me about it. A short time ago, however, I had absolutely no appe tite and was eating so little that I was losing weight and strength ev ery day and I suffered so much from indigestio nand nervousness that I was on the brink of a breakdown. "There are absolutely no words that can express my delight at the remarkable and immediate results I obtained from Tanlac. It benefited me in every way. Instead of being depressed and melancholy and tired and worn out I am full of life and energy and cheerful and happy all the time. I've gained twelve pounds in weight, too."

There seems to be little basis for the be- lief that coins bear any close rela- : tion to the spread of disease, accord ing to an announcement made at the j University of Illinois here by Drs. '' Charlotte B. Ward and Fred W. Tan j ner, of the university, following a series of tests made by the two. j "Coins of the lower denominations were examined for the types of bac teria which exist on them." says their report. "It has often been stated that money is a very danger ous article of commerce, since it is handled by all sorts of persons and because it usually moves so quickly from one person to another. It has also been sttaed that cashiers and others whose vocations require them to handle money in larger quantities than the average person, might be more susceptible to disease, but this does not seem to be the case. "It seems that the very metals from which the coins are made act to I destroy the bacteria which reach the eoins. In the study only the more resistant of bacteria, the spore forming bacteria, were found. This indicates that money need not be feared, for bacteria cannot live long on it. , "These findings, however, do not BUSINESS AND DIRECTORY Name and address of every live Professional Business man in the city in this column, Reliable Ladies' Ready-to-Wear Smart Toggery for Women LOOK FOR OUR DAILY SPECIALS Dr. J.

These salts are the cause ;of the death of bacteria and probably those coins which have an old appearance are' the ones which have few bacte ria." .) Doctors Ward and Tanner have pointed out that postage stamps have somewhat the same relation to the public that money does., althonirli their constitution is quite different from that of coins. Stamps are used but once and are not handled by so many individuals, although the adhesive applied fo them mifht be a favorable abode for micro-or ganisms for relatively one periods of time. Nevertheless, the menace is not regarded as a threatening one; and in an investigation eon. ducted some years ago with refer ence to the question here at issue. pathogenig bacteria , were rarely found on stamps.
