Speak thou, Lord, in words of cheer;
Feeble, tottering my footstep,

Faithful memory paints before uie

Cleanse the guilty soul within;

"'arh me * holly from my sin !
Deeper, deeper, grows the shadows,
Taler now the glowing West:
Hwift the night at dream advances;
Shall it be the night of rett ?
Tarry with me, O, my Saviour!
Lay my head apon thy breast!
Feeble, trembling, faintinz dying,

Tnrry with me through the darkness!
While I sleep still watch by me,
Till the mnrnuig, then awake nie,
Dearest Lo,d, to dw? II with thee."

My appearance on earth is hailed with delight,
And each day ( come in a different light.
Vow read mc backwards, and you will trace
Tin- name of an hideous, horrible race;
Who prowl about at the dead of night
By the moon and the stars' uncertain light;
WTh??e approach fills all with horror and dread,
Ami who leed oa both the liung and dead.
Now solve me this riddl* and you will find

most successful article ever produced for preserving
the hair xrom falling oat or changing color, restoring
and preserving it in a healthy and luxuriant state.
Among other reason*! why Doilard's hair-cutting Sa
loon, maintains its immense popularity is the fact
that bis Tonic te applied to t very head of hair cut at
his establishment, consequently it is kept in better
preservation tban under any other known implica
tion. It being thus practically tested by thouvands,
offers the greatest guaranty of its efflcaoy. Sold

injury to the hair or skin, either by stain cr other
wise, can be washed off in ten minutes after the ap
