Ayer's Hair Vigor keeps the hair soft and pliant, imparts to it the lustre and freshness of youth, causes it to grow luxuriantly, eradicates Dandruff, cures all scalp diseases, and is the most clean ly of all hair preparations. AVpR'C Hair Vigor has giren me rl lll O perfect satisfaction. I was nearlv bald.forsix years, dnring -which time I used many hair preparations, but without success. Indeed, what little hair I had was growing thinner, until 1 tried Ayer's Hair Vigor. I used two liottles of the Vigor, and my head is now t ell covered with a new growth of hair. Judson 1$. Chapel, Peahody, Mass. U AID that has become weak, gray, Ilriill an(i faded, may have new life and color restored to it by the use of Ayer's Hair Vigor. My hair was thin, faded, and dry, and fell out in large quantities. Ayer's Hair Vigor stopped the falling, and restored my hair to its original color. As a dressing for tho hair, thi3 preparation has no equal. Mary N. Hammond, Stillwater, Minn. Wlfjnp youth, and beauty, in tho V luUllj appearance of the hair, may be preserved for an indefinite period by the use of Ayer's Hair Vigor. A dis ease of the scalp caused my hair to be come harsh and dry, and to fall out freely. Nothing I tried seemed to do mo any good until I commenced using Ayer's Hair Vigor. Three bottles of this preparation restored my hair to a healthy condition, and it is now soft and pliant. My scalp is cured, and it is also free from dandruff. Mrs. E. R. Eoss, Milwaukee, "Wis.

All honest men are working for other men. If a man works ex clusively for himself be is a coun terfeiter, or a forger or a sneak thief or per chance a highwayman. All love of industry, all love of in tegrity, all love of kindred, all love of neighbor, all love of coun try, and all love of humanity is expressed in labor for others. For this service thus performed a right to a reward is required, and he for whom the service is performed has imposed on him the duty to render the reward. Everywhere in civil ized society men are thus working for others. Every man, in all the years of his labor, toils for his fellow men, and the practice is universal among all civilized men and lasts from generation to generation; and uni versal practice is gradually be coming crystalized into universal habit. One man is trying to make better houses for his neighbors, another man is trying to make better shoes for his neighbors, an other man is trying to make better laws for his neighbors, and an other man is trying to make better books for his neighbors. Every man is thus forever dwelling upon the welfare of his neighbors, and making his best endeavor for their good, and thus the habit grows from generation to generation, un til atIast some men forget that there is reward for service, and labor for their fellow men because they love their fellow men. They stood together by the gate, the summer moon was gleaming, the night was mild, the hour was late, her silken hair was streaming: "Oh, Algernon," the maiden cried, "why are you plunged in sorrow?'' "Perchance, my love, perchance," he sighed, "l'Jl tell you al to morrow; oh, I am burdened with my woe, my soul for mercy's pleading, my weary head is bend ing low, my shattered heart is bleeding." She took his trem bling hand in hers, the fingers gently pressing; .anon the murmur of the hrs seemed all the world caressing; the hemlocks darkly bending o'er, in sympathy seemed throbbing; upon its white and pebbled shore the restless sea was sobbing. "Tell, tell me all," the maiden said, "methought the fu ture shining; weep you for some loved ono who's dead, or why this sad repining? Your promised bride J am, my dear, won by 3'our ways beguiling; then why this woe and weeping here, when you should now be smiling." With iron band, from oil the fence, be pulled, in rage, a picket; "I'll tell," he said, "and then eo hence I've lost, love, my meal ticket." Biliousness. Wo have tested its virtues, personally, and know that for Dyspepsia, Bilious ness and Throbbing Headache, it is the best medicine the world ever saw. "We tried forty other remedies before Sim mons I.iver Regulator, but none of them gave us more than temporary relief; the Regulator not only relieved but cured us. II. II. Jones Ed. Telegraph and Messenger, Macon. Ga. The Videtle ventures the pre diction that within the next five years Chehalis county will be cov ered with a net-work of logging railroads. This will of necessity be the case, as the timber lying adjacent to the streams of water will be greatly diminished in that time, and also because of some of the largest belts of desirable tim ber can only be reached by such roads. Do not endanger your health by using quinine, when malarial fe vers can be more effectively treated with Ayer's Ague Cure. Warranted "Can't you spare me a little money, papa?" "How much, dear?" "Well, I want to buy enough material to buy one of the new-fashioned bathing suits "How much is the stuff a yard?" "Three dollars." "All right, my dear, get what you want. Here is half a dollar. Scrofula cannot resist the puri fying powers of Ayer's Sarsapa rilla. Sold by druggists. The earnings of the Northern Pacific for the first week in Au gust were $373,532. an increase over the same week last vear of $81,525. Nearly four inches of rain fell in one hour at Brookston, Texa?, the other day. Wonders Worked By Machinery. In the Maine corn packing in dustry," as well as in all others, in ventions have worked wonders. Nowadays, instead of cutting the corn by hand with a common corn knife, improved cutters are used and will cut. from 150 to 300 ears per minute. The old fashioned way of filling the can by means of a tunnel and wooden plunger or spoon has been superseded by the perfect steam power filler with a capacity of 20,000 cans per day, has taken the place of the dish cloth in the hands of the factory girl. In the best equipped factories of to-day, the services of half a dozen persons, whose duty it was to look over the corn after it was cut from the ear and remove all silk and other foreign matter, are done away with by a single corn silking machine, which does the work thoroughly and rapidly. A husking machine, with a capacity of ninety bushels per hour, has been invented by a Portland gen tleman, and by its aid a bushel of corn can be husked, cut, silked, put in cans and made ready to be hermetically sealed in three min utes, or in less time than is re quired to properly husk and silk a single bushel of corn by hand. "What b-e-a-u-tiful peaches," said an old lady, as she stopped at a stall in the market and admired a basket of early peaches. They were covered with a pink gauze and looked very tempting. The old lady bought the peaches and took them home. The next day she appeared again at the stall and showed the stall keeper a small piece of the pink net, "Do you keep that kind of veiling for sale?" she asked. 1 he stall keep er told her that he did not. "Well," she said, "when I got them peaches home, they were small and sour and green, and 1 thought if I could get some of that stuff that made them look so pretty and plump in the basket, I'd wear it myself. If it would improve me as much as it did the peaches, folks would think I'd found the Elijah of life." Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria When Baby was sick, we ga o her Castoria.
