The long ride over the Bolivian desert terminates at Antofagasta, one of the leading ports for the shipment of the nitrate for which Chile is so famous. These nitrate beds were discovered by George Smith, a Scotchman, who observed that trees and plants banked un with a strange white substance flourished more than others. The nitrate fields be longed to Peru until her disastrous war with Chile in 1879-81. At the close of this dreadful contest Chile was vic torious over the combined republics of Bolivia and Peru. She took from Bolivia its entire coastline, and from Peru the provinces of Arica-Tacna, which have become an Alsace and Lor raine of South America. The treaty of peace with Peru provided that after a certain time these provinces should re vert to Peru, if a plebiscite of the peo ple should vote for this return. Since South America was not populated like Alsace and Lorraine, the Chileans were .!?. flll conquered provinces with their own people, and hence to flay there Is small chance of Arica- Tacna going back to Peru. Since 1881 the nitrate Industry has yielded the Government of Chile in export taxes n ?? rly „. h! \ lf a hiHion dollars. This en ables Chile to buil<l up a powerful State and still keep its taxation at a moder ate rate. The Chileans, too, are wise enough to know that the nitrate beds will not last forever. Accordingly, tliev are using the great revenues from this source to build up libraries and sys tems of education, as well as fine rail ways.— Chile, the Yankeeland of South America, Peter Mac Queen, in National Magazine for March, 1914. SHOE MID SULPHUR * DARKENS GRAY HAIR Brush Tills Through Faded, Lifeless lXM'ks and They Become Dork, Glossy, Youthful Hair that loses its color and lustre, 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 Sulphur to keep her locks dark and beautiful, and thousands of women and men who value 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 by asking at any drug store for a 50 cent bottle of "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Kemedy," which dark ens the hair so naturally, so evenly, that nobody can possibly tell it has been applied. Besides, It takes off dandruff, stops scalp itching and fall ing hair. You Just 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 hair disappears; but what delights the ladies with Wyeth's Sage and Sul phur is that, besides beautifully dark ening the hair after a few applica tions, it also brings back the gloss and lustre and gives it an appearance of abundance. —Advertisement. 1 " -v !■ Ou»r»#tt«4 ed for "colilvsC llivm almost ' instantly | OOMAI' RBXALL ITOU| H 11.
