The P'an Thai Promotes Success
The Strange Sea Spider. j
One of the stranpest creatures of the ;
sea Is a certain species of sea spider I
named Nymphon graclle. It has a I
body about the site of a bit of thread I
a quarter of an Inch long and tied Into
four knots. The head looks like the
end of a thread split Into two horns.
From each of the four knot start two
leps, one on each side, making eight in
all. The legs are three or four times
longer than the -body, but tha odd
thing about them is that the alimen
tary tube into which the food goes
runs down into every one of the legs,
so that whatever the spider eata circu
lates through his legs, and, in fact,
the legs are like the body In Internal
structure. Another curl one feature of
this form of life is that the baby sea
spider Is not in the least like the
grownup of the same family. It la
much more like a crab, but how it de
velops from a crablike form is not yet

For eenerations Sae and Sulrjhur
have been used for nair and scalp
troubles. Almost everyone knows the
value of such a combination for keeping
the hair a pood even color, for curine
I dandruff, itching scalp and falling hair,
i and for promoting the growth of thu
hair. Years ago the only way to get
a Hair Tonic of this kind was to make
it in the home, which was troublesome
and not alv.-ays satisfactory. Nowa
days, almost any up-to-date druggist
can supply his patrons with a ready-to-use
product, skillfully prepared in per
fectly equipped laboratories.
An ideal preparation of this sort
is Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair
Remedy, in which Sage and Sulphur
are combined with other valuable reme
dies for scalp troubles and thin, weak
hair that is losing its color or coming
out. After using this remedy for a
few days, you will notice the color
gradually coming back, your scalp will
feel better, the dandruff will soon be
gone, and in less than a month's time
there will be a wonderful difference in
