Gray Hairs '
Gatt be Deferred
Premature xrar hairs usually are the
effects of carelessness. If the scalp is kept
free of dandruff and properly nourished
and strengthened, gray hairs would be un
usual before the are of forty or forty-6ve.
There is no remedy Hi existence that will
restore color to gray hairs ; but the
Hair Grower and Scalp Cleaner, if applied
according to directions contained in each
package, will positively defer gray hairs
until nature compels their appearance.
There are today thousands of American
men and women who have revived the
dying energies f their hair through the
faithful use of these simple and natural

ADDRESS BY MR. SHAFFER.
President of Amalgamated Association In
The local lodge of tbe Amalgamated
Association of iron and Steel workers
held a well attended meeting in Mo
line Saturday night which was ad
dressed by the association's national
president, J. T. Shaffer. The audi
ence was compesed of representative
workingmen and a sprinkling of pro
fessional people, and all were highly
interested in the able speech. In his
address Mr. Shaffer shewed the bene
fits to be obtained by organization,
and by many pointed stories illustrat
ed the truth of the axiom that "in
union their is strength." He showed
that the city, state and nation are in
reality a great amalgamated associa
tion, and tbat the doctors, lawyers,
ministers and all other professions
have organized for mutual protection;
and why should not tbe workingmen,
upon whose shoulders falls the major
part of the burJen of supporting and
defending our country, also organi.e?
Find. Oat Which One of Yoar Feet
Walks the Faster.
You may think this Is a very silly
question to ask, but is It? There is
no catch about it. It is a simple, de
monstrable fact which you can prove
to your own satisfaction In a very few
If you will take any pavement that
Is clear of other pedestrians, so that
there shall be no Interference, and
walk briskly in the center, you will
find that before you have gone 100
yards you will have veered very much
to one side. You must not make any
conscious effort, of course, to keep In
the center, or you may do it, but if
you will think of somethiuK and en
deavor to walk naturally it is 100 to 1
you cannot keep a direct line.
The explanation of this lies In the
peculiarity of one foot to walk faster
than the other. Or, to be more cor
rect, perhaps it should be said that
one leg takes a longer stride than tbe
other, and this, combined with the
quicker movement, causes one to walk
more to one side than the other.
It Is well, known, for instance, that
If one be lost in the woods the tend'
ency Is to walk in a circle and even
tually to return about to the starting
point. This demonstrates the fact also
that one foot walks faster than the
You can try an interesting experi
ment in this way If you will place
two stakes in the lawn about eight
feet apart aud then stand off about
CO feet from them, allow yourself to
be blindfolded and endeavor to walk
between them. You will find It an al
most Impossible task, because one foot
will go a bit faster than tbe otber,
cither to the right of left. Now,
which one of your feet walks faster
than the other? Kansas City Times,

Dr. Henry M. Dearborae. "These are
the structure forming foods of animals
which mature in a short time, and
wbon taken In quantities by human
beings whose structures have already
formed they teud only to the harden

Dr. Dearborne Bald that he bad seen

losing their elasticity much benefited
by eliminating these articles from their
diet. "There has leen a great increase

"We'd bad a brush with the Indians

They were beaten off to be replaced by

Then It was easy to conclude that some
warrior of prominence was in that
