Doctors Say It
Is Criminal To
Neglect a Cold
Health authorities are quoted as say-
Ing that a very large percentage of colda
might be prevented and that a still
greater amount of serious 'illness might
be avoided if people would not neglect
the common cold at its firet appearance.
Every cold carries with It an element of
great danger.
That is why Father John's Medicine
has established itself as the family mod-
Icine of greatest value because It treats
colds In the natural way, drives them off
promptly and rebuilds the power of re
sistance so that strength and normal
health are promptly regained.

Gray Hair Shows
Sage Tea _
Almost every one knows that Saga
Tea and Sulphur, properly compounded,
brings back the natural color and lustra
to the hair when faded, streaked op
gray. Years ago the only way to got
this mixture was to make It at home,
which is mussy and troublesome.
Nowadays we simply ask at any drug
store for ‘‘Wyeth’s Sage and Sulphur
Compound.” You will get a large bottle
of this old-time recipe, improved by the
addition of other ingredients, at very
little cost. Everybody uses this pre
paration now, because no one carr'poisl
bly tell that you darkened your hair, as
t does it so naturally and evenly. You
dampen a sponge or soft brush with it
and draw this through your hair, tak
ing one small strand at a time; by
morning the gray hair disappears, and
after another application o- v»>-
l-.alr becomes beautifully dark, thick and
ptossy, and. you look years youngss, (
John Sharp Williams to Sing
No Swan ” in Senate
John Sharp Williams will sing no
swan song to the United States Sen
ate when his thirty years of public
service have been terminated Sunday
with the adjournment of Congress.
He is content to let the case rest
with the utterance of a year ago that
he had “rather be a dog and bay at
the moon than to sit in the Senate”
and his more recent statement before
the Mississippi Society. “in the .
words of John Allen,” ho said, "I am
going to spend the short remainder of
my life re-establishing my peace with
God and my reputation as. a gentle
Senator Williams is not leaving
Congress by the "lame duck” route.
He retires voluntarily after eighteen
years in the House and twelve years
in the Senate, although it was con
ceded Mississippi would offer no op- ■
position if he announced for re-clee- I
tioh. He chose, as he puts it. “to
catch up on a lot of reading I’ve been
neglecting,” ami be will blc himself

11is aversion to a farewell address
is based on bis belief that “a man
must be actuated by a degree of ego
tism amounting almost to jneglo
mania to believe that his departure
from public life constitutes such an
l historical event that it ought to be

The passing of Senator Williams
[marks the retirement from the Senate
1 hails of the last representatives of
I what has been termed the "old south."
iHe has seldom arisen lately in his
| place on the floor, and when lie did
lit usually was. figuratively, to take
I one of his younger colleagues-across
this knee and administer, in Pncisivc
| language, a verbal spanking.
Senator Williams’ latest crossings
of lances was with Senator Kenneth,
McKellar of Tennessee, when that
gentleman, opposing the British debt
I settlement, took occasion to make,
i references to the British people,
[ which trampled upon the toes of Sen- j
ator Williams, who is proud of his
| British and Welsh ancestry.
American's One invention.
Addressing Senator McKellar, Sen
ator Williams said: "There is one
diversion of the American politician,
well known to the current history or
the United States for the last fort>
years, which used to be very popular,
but which, thank God. is ceasing to
be quite so popular now as it former
ly was. I refer to the attempt to cul
tivate the voters who happen to hate
our British ancestors by ’twisting the
lion’s tail.’ That performance lias
been enacted upon this stage, and
upon the stage at the other end of tin
Capitol, ninny times more ablj than it
was enacted a few minutes ago. and
i by men ninth abler than the scnatoi
who just enacted it.” ■
Shortly prior to that episode
when the league of nations am
Woodrow Wilson had been mentioned
in debate. Senator Williams let fl\ •*
shaft at Senator Borah of Idaho hj ,
observing that individually Borah ,
i might be a wise man, but historical
!iv lie was a fool. Borah asked the
I Missisaippian to clarify the distinc- |
| ti *"Well.” drawled Senator Williams.
‘T had a lot. of smart ancestors in
England. but they fought for the
Stuarts against the Commons. They
were smart men. but historically the.'
were asses. I stand here to contesa
that for them.”
Admires Woodrow Wilson.
The admiration of Senator W il- -
Hams for "Woodrow Wilson and the ;
reciprocal esteem in which the form- .
er President holds him often has been j
remarked ‘in the Capital. It takes I
the form of silence —it is rare that i
they see each other, though, during ,
his term in the White House. Presl- ■
dent Wilson smashed % a precedent
and drove to the home of the senator
to call upon him during an Illness.
The mutual admiration is believed by
many to arise out of the intellectual ;
qualities of the two men, as Senator
Williams has five earned degrees
from great universities, including I
Heidelberg, and is reputed to bo one j
of the country’s foremost authorities t
on history.
His greatest reputation, however, i
has been as a debater, which he es- |
tablished while serving six years as
floor leader for his party in the
lower house. His tenure there was
marked by an encounter on the floor j
between him and Representative j
D’Armand of Missouri.
When he went to the Senate in ;
1911 he occupied the desk which Jet- |
ferson Davis used.
Dislikes Vardaman.
His first race for the Senate, when >
Senator Williams told his Mississippi
constituency that he was “driving j
the nails in the coffin of the senator- |
ial aspirations" of his opponent,
James K. Vardaman. engendered sueli i
feeling between the two that when ]
Vardaman came to the Senate two
years later. Mr. Williams refused to I
follow the Senate custom of escorting 1
I his colleague to the vice president’s
stand to be sworn in and Senator
Vardaman went down on the arm of
Senator Clarke of Arkansas.
His friends in the Mississippi soci
ety presented Senator Williams, at a
farewell for him last Friday night,
with a silver knife and corkscrew at
tachment. It led him to observe that
being an Episcopalian of the high
church, he should follow the injunc
tion of the late Bishop Thompson
and carry his prayer book and cork
Senator Williams has refused an
I offer of $30,000 to write one story a
1 week for a newspaper syndicate, so
that he may be able to do what he
! pleases when he goes to Mississippi.
“And.” he added whimsically, "I
don’t remember to have bored myself
in sixty-eight years.”
”1 am right happy," he told the
Mississippi society. “I have no axe
