A number of the local merchants have stated that with more .families .

W. Griffith's "The Birth of a Nation" will be presented at the Grand theater next Wednesday. That there is an awakened enthusi asm for the intensely dramatic sub jects treated in the Story is shown by Its record turn to the famous Capitol theater in Nfew York, where it was recently presented for a spe. cial engagement and played to 150, 000 people in two weeks.

The first oil burning locomotive ever - to leave Lakeland has been ' sent from the shops of the- Atlantic Coast Line here to Moore Haven to be operated on the Coast Line's new Everglades branch, the Moore Haven and Clew iston railroad- which is built along the southwest shore of Lake Okee chobee. The engine bore on it Hhe letters "M. H. and C." instead of "Atlantic Coast Line," and was said Browning-Fearnside Company Palatka's Best Men's Store has been styled "the second struggle between the north and the south," a struggle caused by the attempt to impose a carpejtDagger rule upon the conquered states. The wild ad ventures and achievements of the Ku Klux Klan dominate the final scenes, which yield a.. happy ending of a double romance of southern and northern sweethearts.

Hair that , loses its color and lus tre, or when it fades, turns gray, dull and lifeless, is caused by a lack of sulphur in the hair. Our grandmoth er made up a mixture fo Sage Tea and Sulphur to keep her locks dark and beautiful, and thousands of wom en and men who value that even col or, tha tbeautiful dark shade of hair which 'is so attractive, use only this old-time Tecipe. Nowadays we get this famous mixture improved by the addition of other ingredients by asking at any drug store for a bottle of "Wtyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound," which dajkens the hair so naturally, so evenly, that nobody can possibly tell it has been applied. You just damp. en a sponge or soft brush with it and' draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time, By morning the gray hair disap pears; but what delights the ladies with Wyelth's Sage and Sulphur Compound is that, besides beautiful ly darkening the hair after a few applications- it also brings back the gloss and lustre and gives1 it an ap pearance of abundance.
