Perfect prcparations for the cure of dandruff, falling hair and premature baldness liave existed in the past only in theory. They were comp.ounded, without any cxact knowlcdge of the real cause of the diseases which they iwere intended to cure. They were good enough for the time?-because there was nothing better known?but they are not good enough for to-day. We know now that diseases of the hair and scalp are of parasitic origin. This Iruth is the result of modern in? vestigation and our knowledge of the bacteriological origin of disease. We know now that the itching scalp, the falling hair and the dandrufT that annovs nnd disilgures are tho work of a pa'rasite hidden deep down in the scalp. , To cure tho surfare indications we must rcach the cause below. This Cranitonic Hair Food does. Being a parasiticido it penetrates to the entire depth of the hair follicle and destroys the parasite that causes the trouble. It does moro?it fceds the weakened hair follicle back to health. It is both a germicide and a natural food for tho hair. lt gives the hair new life, limter nnd growth by fecding the scnlp which holds the hair roots, for the life of tho hair is in tho scalp. lt is the only hnir and scalp food. and there is nothing like it in the world.

Then you aro suffering from a para? sitic dis'ense, cllstiessiiig, annoying and ono that indicatos uncleanliness. Cranilonic Hair Food will absolutely cure it. Is your hair falling? The cause is a parnsito in tho hair follicle, cating nwny tho delicato mem brnno which holds tho hair root in plnce. The only wny <o stop falling hair is to destroy tho p'nrnsitc which causes it.

The Iccmoclastlo theorlos rcgardlng thn orlgln ot tho Hobrow, and honco tho Chrlstlan religlon, as promulgated ro centlyn Germany by Professor Delltzch; under tha partonage of the German Katser, recotved a staggerlng blow last nlght from Dr. Robert D.

A splendld audlence greeted the learned speaker. It was a gatherlng noted for Its erudltlon. The colleges of the clty were excellently representea. When Dr. Robert P.

If Professor Delltzch ls right, contendc* PROF. ROBERT DICK WILSON. Dr. "Wllson, ln the statement that the Hebrews got thelr religlon from the Babylonians, and not ivlce. versa. as the Chrlstlan world. hn* always held. Moses was wrong ,lp 'copf/rtliig that he first got the name' of Jelijovah for Gort at the burnnlng. bush, as Abraham would appear to havo had It long beforo, _nc; the professor ..V. Imated that tho "whoie dlvlslvo theory of tho Pentateuch, so long held,,would go to smasn. Professor Wllson presented the tabu lated ' rcsults of hls comparlsons of the Babylonlon, Hebrow Aramaic, and Arablc languages to tost Pro? fessor Delltzch's theory that tho He? brews got thelr religlon from the Baby? lonians. He compared thelr vocabularlos and found that tho rcsemblance of He? brow to Arablc was fifty-slx iper cent,. us agalnst a twenty-nlno per cent- rc? semblance between the Hebrow and Babylonlon. He found that the I-Iebre-w and Babylonlan dld have tho same words for many rnlnor things, but tho resem blanco dlsappeared ln going to hlgher things. WHIORE LANGUAGE DrFFER. Taklng tho words of tho CommanO ments, he found that the Hebrow -won? "klll" has no resemblanoo to nny worr} ln the Babylonlan; so of the words "steal, adultory, _?vot" They 1-ad a word "Sab bath," but nothlng llko tho Hebrow ln? stltutlon. Evon lf Babylonians had a Sabbuth day by such a namo thor.. was no cessatlon of won: oxcopt for D.e klngs and physlcluns. Thero was proba? bly a Semltlc Sabbath, which both He? brews and Babylonians copled and de veloped along dlfforont llne*. The Baby? lonlan Aind Hebrew words for rulor, kln'ff and Juuge wero very different. Of tbe dozens W Babylonlan words for prophetf and seers not one was lnnprossod on Che Hebrow, and the ono Hobrow word for prlest waa not In the Babylonlan lan guago. Dr. Wllson proceeded: "On tho dootrlnes of God, sln, grace. pardon, roponlunce, saWatlon. falth, fhe Mosslnli, the klng dom, whnt evlde.nce Is thero thnt the Babylonians Innuenced tho Hebrews? Of the Hobrow words for sln, only one Is found lu the Babylonlan, and this Is the prlmltlve Somltlc root. All other words for sin are absont, and on the other hand all tlio Babylonlan words for sln are absont from tho Hebrow. Of the words for grace, two aro found ln nll four' languages, but tho two specifically technlcal oxipresslons in J_K)brow do nol occur. Of the Hebrew words for par? don one occurs In a moral sense In tho Babylonlan, "Tho word Savlour, so preclous to us in Its Engllsh form of Jcsus, never pro sents Itsolf to us on tlio monumonts; nor does 'to anolnt,' nor doo.v-tho doctrino of salvatton through o Redeemer, nor of nji anolntod servant of God, appear on tho tablots of Babylon. Nor ls thero any such thlng as a predlellvo prophocy, as dlstlngulshod from fortuno telllng or soothsaylng. nor a doctrlne of tho klng dom of God,1 Not ono of the Hebrew words for falth occurs in tho Babylonlan tonguo, oxcept 'to ileo for refugo,' and thls onco or twlco In lts llteral sense.

Sometimes it seemcd as though my back would break in two after stooping. I had to get up many times during the night to ttrinate and go often through the day. After having the best physicians prescribe for me without relief, I decided from my symptoms that the medicine I needed was Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney, liver and bladder remedy. After trying a sample bottle with good results, I purchased slx bottles of the regular size, and after taking them was entirely cured. Swamp-Root is a wonderful remedy when a man is not feeling well, after expostire or. loss of sleep and irregular mcals. It is also a great medicine to tone up a man's system. Other mem? bers of the police force are using and recommending Swamp-Root.
