taker unmercifully flayed the existing
statutes, declaring that the present
method of pronouncing sentence for
minor violations of law was actually
responsible for a large proportion of
crane in this cilj.
"A fixed sentence such as the courts
now are compelled, to give to those who
violate the law." said Superintendent
Whittaker, "is the cause of much of tho
crime and vagrancy in the District. I
recommend the criminal code be so
amended that prisoners committed to
the workhouse be sentenced for not less
than thiity days or more than two
years, the time of release to be fixed
by the Commissioners, according to
the prisoner's conduct.

It's Grandmother's Recipe to
Restore Color, Gloss
and Thickness.
Hair that loses its color and lusier,
or when it fades, turns gray, dull and
lifeless, is caused by a lack of sulphur
in the hair. Our grandmother made up
a mixture of Sage Tea and Sulpnur
to keep her locks dark and beautiful,
and thousands of women and men who
aiue that even color, that beautiful
! dark shade of hair which is so attrac
tive, use only this old-time recipe.
Nowadays we get this famous mix
ture ny asking at any drug store lor
a . cnt bottle of "W'yeth's Sage and
.Sulphur Compound," h!ch dai kens the
. hair so nnturally. so evenly, that no
i body can ios3ibly tell it has been ap
' plied. Besides, it takes off dandruff,
stops scalp itching, and falling lialr.
You Just dampen a sponge or soft
brush w'th it and draw this through
your hair, taking one small strand at
a time. By morning the gray hair
disappears; but what delights tho ladles
witii Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur is that,
besides beautifully darkening the hair
after a few applications. It also brings
back the gloss and luster and gives
it an appearance of abundance. Advt.
