H. H. SUMMEROUR, Box 43, Duluth, Ga. That Cured Him. You should have seen the way Wut- fles moaned over bis petty ailments. He was one of those chapB who were always bewailing their ill state ot health, when all that 1b really the mat ter with them is the need of a little lecturing. "Oh, my chest, doctor!" he walled to his physician one evening. "My lungs feel so compressed. Some peo ple tell me to Inhale sulphur fumes. Others recommend a seaside holiday. What would you advise me to do?" "Try fresh air," said the doctor shortly. "Five dollars, please." No Task for Tyros. One of the men at the front has told Os how he tried to milk a cow with out the expected result. This is not an easy task for an unpracticed hand. Leslie Stephen was once on a long tramp in Switzerland, accompanied by his friend, Doctor Morgan. They missed their way and found them selves, parched and hungry, far from any dwelling place. At length they came across a cow, from whom they determined to extract some nourish ment, each holding on to her horns in turn, they had to abandon all hopes of milk. This, remarks Doctor Mor gan, is "one of the very few occasions cn which I ever saw Stephen fairly thwarted." Denver women are forming home and school clubs in the churches. Must Hurry Commissions.

A trained nurse says: "In the prac tice of my profession I have found so many points in favor of Grape-Nuts food that I unhesitatingly recommend It to all my patients. "It is delicate and pleasing to the palate (an essential in food for the sick) and can be adapted to all ages, being softened with milk or cream for. babies or the aged when deficiency of teeth renders mastication impossible. For fever patients or those on liquid diet I find Grape-Nuts and albumen water very nourishing and refreshing. "This recipe is my own Idea and is made as follows: Soak a teaspoonful of Grape-Nuts in a glass ot water for an hour, strain and serve with the beaten white of an egg and a spoonful of fruit Juice for flavouring. This af fords a great deal of nourishment that even the weakest stomach can assimi late without any distress. . ."My husband is a physician and he uses Grape-Nuts himself and orders it many times for his patients. "Personally I regard a dish of Grape Nuts with fresh or stewed fruit as the ideal breakfast for anyone well or Btck." In stomach trouble, nervous prostra tion, etc., a 10-day trial of, Grape-Nuts will usually work wonders toward nourishing and rebuilding and in this way end the trouble.

GRANDMA USED SAGE TEA TO DARKEN HER GRAY HAIR She Made Up a Mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur to Bring Back Color, , Gloss, Thickness. Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea and Sulphur, properly compound ed, brings back the natural color and lustre to the hair when faded, streaked or gray; also ends dandruff, itching scalp and stops falling hair. Tears ago the only way to get this mixture was to make it at home, which is mussy and troublesome. Nowadays, by asking at any store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy," you will get a large bottle of the famous old recipe for about 50 cents. Don't stay gray! Try it! No one can possibly tell that you darkened your hair, as it does it so naturally and evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time, by morning the gray bair disappears, and after another ap plication or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, thick and glossy.
