THE PACIEIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, HONOLULU, JULY 31, 1901.
Few People Realize That their hair is s 'ck when it shows signs of falling and that in its feeble way it is crying for nourishment. If your hair is falling or dry or turning gray, or if the scales of dandruff are continually falling like snow from your scalp, it is very evident that it is not enjoying good hath; therefore the only intelligent thing to do is to treat it. PACHECO'S DANDRUFF KILLER quickly cleanses the scalp of all humors and dandruff, it arrests the fall and imparts a healthy, natural color to the hair. It is scientifically compounded and is the result of many years of experience and study of the diseases of the human scalp. t NEVER FAILS TO CURE SOLO BY ALL DRUGGISTS AXD ' ' -C J C v BAH BE SHOP- F.PACHECO; I , . . 5 lotice the New Labc I As in above cut, of 1 7 J There is only one genuine Pacheco s Dandruff Killer.

H. Helm Clayton has made a summary of the observations, showing that the umbra, or small total shadow, was fol lowed at a distance of 500 miles by a cold area, in which the fall of temper ature was over 8 degrees Fahrenheit. A cyclone that is, a great rotating windstorm, and not a violent tornado was quickly developed, moved with the eclipse, and was rapidly dissipat ed. The anti-cyclonic area extended for 1,500 miles from the umbra, beyond which the cyclonic ring had a width of I, 000 miles. This is a true ttold-air cy clone, and it has suggested that a like atmosphprio disturbance must be pro duced by the shadow of night, with a hot-air cyclone by the heat of day ex plaining the double diurnal variations of barometric pressure.

Frt J The rarely seen green ray, or brilliant emerald flash with which the sun disap pears behind the sea horizon, has bet:n lately observed in Scotland by Mr. J. Franklin Adams. The phenomenon lastea about three seconds, and the observer was surprised to see it begin with an emerald bead, followed by another and another, until a string of seven had developed, having an apparent length of about a twelfth of the sun's diameter. As the "Baily's beads" of eclipses are thought to be due to the mountains on the moon. It is suggested that the break ing up of the green flash may have been an effect of ocean waves, although the sean was quite calm. It Is urged that careful observers at the seaside and on board ships watch for this pecu'.Iar flash at sunrise as well as at sunset and report any results to the astronomi cal societies. Much has been said about a poisonous alkaloid in air from the lungs After a careful Investigation, Herr B. For manek finds that no poisonous substance exists In the breath of a healthy man or animal, but that the expired air may contain traces of ammonia In cases of dental carries or pulmonary complaints. It is this ammonia not a special alka loid of terrifying virulence that has been collected from expired air. At the brown-coal mines of Prussia, gas from the dry distillation of lignite has been tested for several years for ty,o:i a one-ines: and in one locality three motors of 125 horsepower each are now in use for generating electric cur rent for lighting and power transmis sion. The cost Is estimated to be only about one-half of that of operating steam engines from boilers fired by lignite. An alloy of aluminum and antimony Is reported by a German chemist to have a fusing point more than 400 degrees C. above that of either constituent, and a volume about 20 per cent greater than that of the two metals combined. An instructive lesson, in manuring has been given by Prof. Middleton, of the Durham College of Science, in a circular to British farmers. To supply the three chief essentials of fertility-nitrogen, phosphoric acid, and potash-a mixture was used consisting, for each acre of land, of 1 cwt. of nitrate of soda and cwt of sulphate of ammonia for the SURGEON GENERAL.

Swedes were grown on six dif ferent farms, after applications of this complete manure and of the mixture minus each essential ingredient in turn. Comparing the yields with that from the complete manure, the greatest loss resulted from omitting nitrogen on two farms, phosphoric acid on two, and potash on two. Omission of phosphoric acid In one case reduced the crop from 16 tons to 1 cwt. and in another from 22 tons to TAs tons. In another place the omission of superphosphate caused a loss of less than two tons of roots, whereas the deficiency from withholding nitrogen was 7 tons, and that due to omitting potash was A. tons. These examples emphasize the Importance of testing the soil of each farm, as advis ed, so that needs may be supplied. A cirlous diversity of hair structure is found by Dr. W. G. Ridewood in the Beveral types of sloths. The hair of the three-toed sloth is covered with a thick extra-cortical layer, which cracks In a transverse direction, and furnishes a lodging place for a kind of alga that flourishes and gives the animal the green tint of the foliage In which it hangs. An alga of different species lives upon the two-toed sloth. But in this animal the bulk of the hair Is compos ed of cortex which is longitudinally fluted or grooved, the grooves being fill ed with strands of extra-cortex In which the alga grows. The hairs of the Pata gonian ground sloth are quite different, being smooth and solid. y A German absorbent for collecting dust in sweeping is made by mixing 12 parts by weight of mineral sperm oil with 88 parts of Roman or Portland ce ment a few drops of mirbane oil be Ing added. The greasy, sandy mass re tains the dust of the surf a e being cleaned, preventing the rising , of the particles and it may be used repeatedly. The seismograph, or earthquake re corder, is made to serve as a sensitive barometer at th- meteorological observ atory of Victoria, B. C. Since 1898 a Milne selsmogi ipb has had its move ments compare,' with the changes of at mospheric pressure recorded by an aero graph, and it has been found that the horizontal pendulum tends to move eastward when the barometric pressure is high over the Pacific slope southward to California and comparatively low over the ocean to the westward. This move ment appeals to be due to a distortion of the earth's surface by the weight of the air. When an extensive storm area Is approaching from the westward, and often 18 to 24 hours before the local bar ometer begins to fall, the pendulum of the seismograph swings steadily to the eastward, masking any diurnal fluctua tions; and when an important high area follows, the pendulum will begin to swing westward before It Is possible to locate this area on current weather charts. Located in the Famous Coalinga Oil Fields of California. Proven oil lands, completely sur rounded by as rich oil producing wells as there are in the State, yielding from 50 to 250 barrels per day. Contract prices for oil at the Coal inga wells, 70 cents per barrel. With twenty-five producing wells of 100 barrels each per day, you can make your own calculation as to profits. The oil Industry in California is In its infancy, yet many fortunes have been made by judicious and lucky in vestments in oil stock. Many more will be made in the near future. The average advance on original sales of oil stock in twenty leading companies in California has been from $1 to $10$ per share. Oil lands have advanced from $1.25 to $1,000 and $2,000 per acre. When the Pacific Union Oil Company has a number of producing wells on its property, its stock will have the same show for even a greater advance, as some oil stock has advanced from $1 to $1,500 per share. The Pacific Union Oil Company has no salaried officers, and is controlled by well known gentlemen of integrity, who will sec that the money derived from the sale of stock will be legiti mately applied to the development of its property.

An assistant was afTected from time to time with a rash on the hands, chiefly around the nails, and in the hot weather of last August a violent red rash, very painful and irritating, appeared on his face. This was most troublesome about the eyes and nose. The victim was sent to a hospital., and it was three months before he recovered. The medical men gave warning that a return to his work of carbon printing would doubtless bring a renewal of the poisoning. The world's restlessness has extended to the atmosphere of late.
