PERRY Grand Stuff, That Hair Tonic! Chicago, 111., Oct. 26, 1908. Willson Bros., Edgerton, Wis. Dear Doctors: —Your Dandruff Cure and Cocoa Oil were duly received, and I hasten to say that my scalp is now in a healthy condition, though I must say that my escape from baldness was hair raising. It is with the greatest of pleasure that I recommend the merits of your wonder ful hair tonics, for my bill for trimmed eyebrows and hair cuts alone, last week, being four dollars and eighty cents. My landlady, Mrs. X., also wishes to express her gratitude for what your hair tonic has done for her. Only a few days ago the cook mistook it for a tonic of a different nature, and she, at once devel oped a perfect hair-lip. Mr. X is now spending his evenings in the sitting room instead of the kitchen. Your hair tonic is not only of great value for improving one’s personal ap pearance, but it is also a great expense saver. A slight application is sufficient to revive hair mattresses, paint brushes and hair cloth furniture. Your tonic .nearly caused a tragedy, embarrassing to me yesterday. My landlady’s pet cat jumped upon my dresser and drank a little of the precious fluid. The landlady was at her wits’ end but luckily I conceived a plan. By thoroughly picking the cat, and turning her wrong side out, I saved her life and much to Mrs. X’s delight she is now maltese instead of a sandy complexion. Please send me by return mail odo thousand five hundred and eighty-seven bottles of your excellent hair tonic, as J have ordered four hundred car-loads of intelligent cabbage heads, upon which I intend to raise a fine crop of assorted hairs for the trade during the coming holiday season. Very truly yours, Nick. New Train a Day Going Out of Mil waukee. A train a day! That is what the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway has been sending out to its Pacific coast extension from its Milwaukee shops of late. An engine of the big K 1 type, twenty-four freight cars and a caboose, with train crew aboard, have pulled out from the Milwaukee shops each day, not to return, crew and all going through The shops have been turning out twenty four freight or stock cars and a caboose daily, two locomotives of the K 1 type each week and one mail and one express and baggage car weekly. In addition the company has been receiv ing fifty of the K 1 engines from a loco motive company, so the engines have come along at the rate of one a day, fig uring in the two a week turned out in Milwaukee. After having turned out 5,000 freight cars of late the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway recently asked for pro posals for the parts of 2,000 additional cars. Before the proposals were opened the number was increased to 3,000 and finally to 5,000. Metal enters very large ly into the new cars, probably not to ex ceed 800 pounds of wood being used in the new stock cars. The foundry plant at the Milwaukee shops is turning out 400 car wheels daily and at that cannot keep up with I the demand.—Milwaukee Free Press.
