Can only be preserved by keeping the)
scalp clean, cool, and free from dan
druff, and the body in a healthful
condition. 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
A Binillur result attended the uso of

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.

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
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.

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

Everv ono cannot Indulge In the sensa
tion of making a will which disposes of
millions, liui every one can attain a
degree of satisfaction to ono's self by
makluir a dlapositlou or ono a possessions.
We accept it as a matter of course that
tho rich man aud the rich woman shall
bequeath his or her outato to contain heirs
suirirestod by nature or choice, but tho
ordinary, everyday people lu the world
live along without much thought of
time when somebody oIbo shall possosn
tholr all. be it much or llttlo. Indeed
tho very suggestion of making a will la
regarded by very many sensible men as a
borbiiiKur of evu, a certain preparation
for a dreaded timo which Is sure to bring
it nearer. Especially Is this true of self
made meu of a certain ago, who have a
like dread of inoviug luto a now, flue
house which thov have built lato in life
aud which thoy loavo untouanted for as
long a time as poaalblo from a suporeti

NOT AT ALL UNPLEASANT.
Ta there no 1ov in makliiff those llttlo
plans to please others, so that when tno
veil of darkness shuts you from their
sicht. your coins: may not be all an un
broken pain that no tender thoughts of
bow you had planned to remain in their
thoughts should follow you on tho un
known voyage to tho mysterious beyond?
While this, perluips, is tlie strongest ar
gument for persons who possess only
trwing things to mako a will, tlicro is an
other, too, which has a pleasant sido.
Few of us have tho sllc-htest Idea of what
wo have; things acci'.uiulnto so fast. In
a good bized family of comfortable moons
thero aro enough tilings of valuo given at
ono Cnnstmaa season to warrant tne
making of a will. Tho listing of what
ono does possess Is a pleasant occupation,
full of surprises, and would nil many
t'.'cary hours for elderly people1, whoso
tvoniug eyesight and general feebleness
debars thorn from active Interests and
employments and leaves their lives but a
