GMaBItBMGE II npi HUB She mixed Sulphur with it to Restore Color, Gloss, Youthfulness. Common garden sage brewed Into a heavy tea with sulphur added, will turn gray, streaked and faded hair beautifully dark and luxuriant. Just a few applications will prove a revela tion If your hair Is fading, streaked or gray. Mixing the Sage Tea and Sul phur recipe at home, though, Is trou blesome. An easier way is to get a bottle of Wyeth’s Sage and Sulphur Compound at any drug store all ready for use. This is the old-time recipe Improved by the addition of other In gredients. While wispy, gray, faded hair is not sinful, we all desire to retain our youthful appearance and attractive ness. By darkening your hair with Wyeth’s Sage and Sulphur Compound, no one can tell, because It does it so naturally, so evenly. Tou just dampen a sponge or soft brush with It and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning all gray hairs have disappeared, and, after another application or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, glossy, soft and luxuriant. This preparation is a delightful toilet I requisite and is not Intended for the cure, mitigation or prevention of dis ease. HIS VAST WEALTH A CUfcSE Sudden Poeeeeelon of Immense R lobes Too Much for Mental Stability of Mexican Indian. Confined in an asylum for the luwno In Mexico Is a millionaire who qever enjoyed a cent of hla fortune, though for a time he had it In his possession In cash. The amazing story of this man to whom wealth proved a curse, Is told by O. P. Weeks In the Wide World Magazine. Juvenclo Robles, a full-blooded Mexican Indian, was born In a palm leaf hut In the little town of Panuco, Inland from Tampico. From earliest childhood he was forced to work, his wages amounting to less than 50 cents a week. When arrived at manhood he married and from then on turned his earnings over to his wife as banker. For several years he led a colorless existence, scrimping along day by day and saving little. Then one day some friends Inveigled him Into a card game. Fortune was with him and he won what was a great sum to them, $1& This he Invested In a small butcher shop. The market thrived and a few years later he was able to buy some land on which to fatten cattle. When oil was discovered at Tampico his ranch was In the heart of the ^ld. He was offered 1,000,000 pesoi 4 a yearly royalties for the oil rights his land. This he accepted, but < manded payment In gold. j The money was delivered to him as he requested, and from then qn hid sole Interest In life consisted In guard ing his treasure. He slept on a box filled with coins and refused to eat for fear his family would poison him. At last his mania reached such a stage thr-* that It was necessary to have him con fined. RAIL LINE CROSSES OCEAN Remarkable Trip That la Taken by Travelers on Their Way to Key West, Florida. Thousands of Americans at the va cation time of the year take the only ocean trip which can be made on n railroad train, writes “Niksah” in the Chicago News. They go to Key West by way of the line which runs through the Atlantic ocean on an embankment built from one to another of those tiny Islands known as the Florida keys. As you ride along this remarkable railroad, you look out the window and down into the clear shallow water and see great schools of fish playing near the surface, and deeper down you can glimpse now and then the shadowy form of a small shark. On either side of you reaches away to the horizon * vast expanse of brilliant blue water, dotted with islands, which vary. In size from a fraction of an acre, to perhaps a quarter of a square mile. They are low and flat and covered with low growing mangroves, and other swamp plants. Here and there a grov ' coconuts or royal palms lifts e ery silhouette. Occasionally shack is glimpsed, and a few sA seen in the distance, but" for the part the region is a wilderness o water, white sand and low-grc Jungle—a wilderness that you wo love to explore in a small boat. Of life you see little. Now and theu white flocks of ibises rise from the is lands; a tree duck spatters clumsily away from the train, or a great blue heron trails his legs in lonely dignity across the sky. For the most part silence and sunlight own the place. Chinese Mall Up to Date. The Chinese mail bag Is now a pop ular institution throughout the whole of the ancient empire. Established 28 years ago, active development of the department only began after the Box er revolution. In 1918 6,000 miles orf overland routes were added to the serv< ice. And now a. new-continuous over land courier route of roughly 8,375 miles, the longest in the world, con nects Kalgan by way of Mongolia with Tlhwafu, capital of the Slnklank (Chi nese Turkestan) following in part th«| eld trade routes from China to Persia. The townspeople of a flourishing man ufacturing district were so enraged ffr centl.v by the delay of mall that the; appealed to the court, and the par* responsible was ordered to be decar tated if he offended again.

Por ter, Hartsville, Ind., has difficulty finding proper words to express her self, as most children at that*age da Personal pronouns are particularly difficult.
