The profanity and indecent language
used on the grounds and bleachers at
last Sunday's base ball game was a

Nine times in ten there is 110 need of baldness.
There's plenty of warning; hair loses lustre, begins
falling, dandruff increases. The time to decide
whether or not you eare to he bald is when these
symptoms show themselves.
OUR OWN HAIR TONIC is a reliable and
effective remedy. It will not grow hair on a billiard
ball; but where hair has fallen out and a spark of
life remains in the rjots, growth will be quickened
and stimulated. This remedy vitalizes the roots,
tones the scalp, stops the falling out, hastens the
growing in. Price 50 cents.
