But I can't remember that I ever met one who didn't behave as if he was spoiled for life when his hair fell out, and to their last gasp they'll grasp at any kind of a tonic or restorer as drowning people will climb into a boat.

None of them is satisfactory, to tell the truth. Now and then I run across a scalp, that isn't entirely dead to the world, and I manage to induce a growth but it is disappointing.

The po ol' Bordeaux is also a good market log wood, where it helps to mai "first-class, pure claret." One of the atguments of the temperance for--* against wine drinking is that most the red wines are dyed and admter ated with log wood. However, if any thing, this is really an argument i:i favor of the wine, as the juice o' wood is a very excellent tonic and the coast countries of Mexico iog wooi' I chips steeped in water, which is me made into a lemonade by the aid lemon juice and sugar, is one of the standard tonic remedies for people who are run down from malaria, a id besides being a tonic it is a verv pleasant drink. Probably from a I health point of view the French clam would be better if made entirely out of log wood. In France one of the rem edies used by physicians in cases of extreme debility is a bath in claret wine, as in the same way in the hot countries of Mexico baths in an infu sion of log wood are used.
