The groat popularity of Ayer's Hair Vigor Is due to the fact that It cleanses the scalp, promotes the growth of the hair, prevents it from fulling out, and gives it that soft and Silky gloss so essential to perfect beauty. Frederick Hardy, of Itoxbury, Mass., a gentleman fifty years of age, was fast losing his hair, and what remained was growing gray. ' After trying various dressings with no effect, he commenced the use of Ayer's Huir Vigor. "II stopped the fulling out," he writes ; "and, to my great surpriso, converted my white hair (without staining the sculp) to the same shade of brown it had when I was 23 years of age." Ten Years Younger. Mrs. Mary Montgomery, of Boston, writes: "For years, I was compelled to wear a dress cap to conceal a bald spot on the crown of my head ; but now I gladly lay the cap aside, for your Hair Vigor Is bringing out a new growth. I could hardly trust my Bouses when I first found my hair growing ; but there it is, and I am delighted. 1 look ten years younger." A Binillur result attended the uso of Ayer's nair Vigor by Mrs. O. O. Pres. cott, of Charlestown, Mass., Miss Bessie H. Bcdloe, of Burlington, Vt., Mrs. J. J. Burtou, of Bangor, Me., and numerous others. The loss of linir may bo owing to Im purity of the blood or derangement of the stomach and liver, In which case, a cnur.se of Ayer's Sursiipiiiilla or of Ayer's Pills, in connection with the Vigor, may be necessary to give health and tone to all the functions of the body. At the sumo time, it cannot be too strongly urged that nono of these remedies can 1 much good without a persevering trial and strict attention to cleanly and temperate habits.

BOW TO ODASD AGAIX8T TUB DISEASE. Croup Is the terror of young mothers especially during thn early winter Dionlhs, as it is then most prevalent To post them concerning the cause, first symptoms, treatment and how to prevent it, is the object of this article. The origin of croup is a common cold, children that are subject to it tako cold very easily and croup is almost sure to follow. Tbo first symptoms of eroup is hoarseness, it Is a peculiar hoarseness, easily recognized and once heard al ways remembered. Usually a day or two before the attack, the child be comes hoarse and gradually shows symptoms of having taken cold, and this is where the mistake is usually made, the mother thinking her child bos just taken com gives it no especial attention until awakened in the night by the violent coughing of the child, finds it has the croup and remombors it has had a cold or been hoarse for a day or two. Such circumstances often oc our, and in many eap"i the mother has nothing in the honsoTnat will relieve it, and may be several miles from a physi cian or drug store. Yon can well im agine the situation and her distress. The time to act is when the child lirst becomes hoarse or shows symptoms of having taken cold; if Charaborlain's Cough Remedy is freely given from that time on, all tendency to croup will disappear and all danger be avoided. The remedy prevents fully ten thous and cases of croup every year. It is the main relianoo with many mothers thronsrhout the Western States and Territories; they have learned its value and how to nse it, and in those families eroup Is seldom Known Because It is ajwoys prevented. The best treatment forcroup Is Cham- iberlain's Cough Remedy used as di- reeled with each bottle. Careful in- q.uiry falls to reveal a single case wnere it has ever failed although a great many tevere and dangerous cases havo been cored bv it. Csb any mother who but small children afford to be without such t remedy. It costs but fifty cents, can the afford to tako the chances tor so trivial an amount. a - A Good Liniment When you need a good liniment try Chamberlain's Pain LSalm. It cures Sprains, Lame Hock.

Somewhere the wiud is blowing, I thought as I toiled along In tha burning heat of the noontido, Aud the fauoy made me strong. Yet, somewhere the wind i blowing Though bore where I gasp and Bigh Not a breath of air is stirring, Not a cloud in tho burning sky. Soniowhore the thing we long for Exists on earth's wide bound, Somewhere the son is shining When wiuter nips the grouud. Somewhere the flowers are suringing, Somewhere the ooru is brown, And ready uuto tbo harvest To feed the hungry town. Somewhere tho twilight gather And weary men lay by The burdou of the daytime, And wrapped in slumber lie. Somewhere the day is breaking, And gloom aud darkness floo; Ihough storms our bark is tossing, There's somewhere a placid sea. And thus I thought .tis, always. In this mysterious life, There's always gladness somewhore la spite of its pain and strife; ' And somewhere the sin aud sorrow Of earth are known no more, Somewhere our weary spirits Shall find a peaceful shore, Somewherd the thiugs that try us Shall all have passed away, And doubt and fear no longer Impede the porfeot day. Oh, brothor, though the darkness Around thy sonl be cast, The earth is rolling sunward And light shall come at last. Our present system of election laws b the growth of experience, anJ pro gress is steadily being made toward rejrostcrinir the will of the voterr. The most iinporUnt requirements are now the registration of voters, the closing of the p jlla at & o'clock in cities, the secret ballot, and the de struction of ballots after they are counted. Not all those provisions are in force in every state, and the provisions for a secret ballot are lvj where perfect us yet, but all these re quirements are to come, aud should be urged by all good citizens every where. Registration is absolutely necessary to prevent frauds. The closing of the polls ut 4 o'clock iu the afternoon requires the voting to be done in daylight and the counting to be completed eurlier, before returns from remote districts are received, thus lessening tho danger of tamper ing with returns in cities, where fraud is most likely to occur. The reasons for a secret ballot are the protection of the voter from undue influence ; and we are learning that it is necessary to so arrauge the voting places as to make it absolutely impossible for any person to tell how another votes un less he himself makes the statement. The destruction of tho ballots is a late provision in the state of New York, and should be adopted everywhere. At first it would seem that ballots should be preserved to be recounted in case ot dispute, out experience has shown that it is impossible to guard them for any length of time. After the election is over and it is known just how many votes are want ed, if a recounting is ordered it be comes easy for those iu possession of the ballots to fix them to order. There is no reason why a second count should be more accurate than a first The best provision, there fore, is to throw around the first count all possible safeguards, so that it is as likely to be correct as any there after made more likely, because the canvassers do not know the result in other places and tftn destroy the ballots.
