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
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,
New Train a Day Going Out of Mil
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
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.
