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'Q k Vigor has given me
ni uu ? perfect satisfaction. I was
nearly bald for six years, during which
time I used many hair preparations, hut
without success. Indeed, what little
hair I had was growing thinner, until
I tried Ayer's Hair Vigor. I used two
bottles of the Vigor, and my head is now
well covered with a new growth of hair.
Judson B. Chapel, Peabody, Mass.
LI AID that has become weak, gray,
I"'1' and 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 the
hair, this preparation has no equal.
Mary N. Hammond, Stillwater, Minn.
VlfiflR yutn and beauty, in the
V lUUIIj 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
me any good until I commenced using
Aye,r'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.
Foss, Milwaukee, "Wis.

"Riches take unto themselves
wings and fly away," said the
teacher. "What kind of riches is
meant?" And the 'smart boy at
the foot of the class said he "reck
oned they must be ostriches."
An indignant parent, in rebuk
ing a refractory son, exclaimed:
"Remember who you are talking
to, sir! I'm your father." To
which the youth rejeined: "Oh,
come now, I hope you ain't goin'
to blame me for that!"
The children in the next room
were very noisy, and mamma told
4-year-old Bessie, sitting beside
her, to shut the door. Bessie
closed it, but the noise was still
painfully audible. "Mamma," she
said, looking up with a counte
nance indicative of a bright idea,
"Mamma, I dess I better lock it."
A Kingston family moved from
their house a month ago, and re
cently the little girl of the family
and her mother went to call on the
new tenant. While there the
child saw a small baby that had
had arrived a few days before, and
said: "Mamma, we moved too
soon; we'd have got tho baby if
we had staid here."
"Now, Tommy, don't you feci
sorry for all the naughty things
you vo done to-day t ".Not now,
teacher." "You don't?" "I shall
be sorry, though at bed lime teach
er." "Tommy!" "Well, you
wouldn't have ine spoil the day
bein' sorry, would you? At night
I can be sorry for all my sins at
once and save time."
In a St. Albans church on a re
cent Sunday a little lad looked on
with surprise as the contribution
boxes were passed around. He
had an idea that the cash was
being distributed gratis, and so,
just as the box was leaving the
pew in which he sat, he put his
chubby little hand in among the
change and brought out a fistful,
and was quite disgusted when his
mamma made him disgorge.
A very observing 4-year-old
came to our house one morning
when the buggy was being oiled,
and, in answer to his questions,
found it was done to prevent the
buggy from making a noise. A
few days afterwards the family
were very much disturbed by a
cow. which kept up a continual
lowing. "Why don't Will iioiid
oil his cow?" asked the 4-year-old,
with all seriousness, "sos she
won't make so much noise?"
New use for the telephone A
family residing on Tibbits avenue
have a 5-year-old son who can ask
more questions than two grown
persons can answer. The other
day, after putting his mother out
of all patience asking her ques
sions about tho whooping, which
is so prevalent just at present on
Ida Hill, he was admonished to
keep quiet. This he did for a
few moments, when his mother
was much amused at being ap
proached by her hopeful, who
whispered into her ear: "Mam
ma, may I call- up the doctor by
telephone and cough to him, and
see if he thinks I have the whoop
ing cough?" Troy Budget.
An exceedingly expressive an
swer: A lady who dresses ele
gantly and belongs to the high
perch of social plumage made a
call recently upon a lady of her
acquaintance and waited in the
parlor while her card -was sent up.
A tiny specimen of a girl was
present, who eyed the elegant vis
itor very closely and seemed much
interested in her appearance.
"Well, my dear," remarked the
visitor, with approval, as she
smoothed out her silks and laces,
"what do you think of me?"
"Oh," said the little girl, with the
charming candor of childhood,
"I've seen flounces before!" De
troit Free Press.

If the boom is really busted, let
'er bust; in this wondrous country

The resident of hades, don't for

A certain lieutenant on board
an English guardship recently ap
plied to his captain for leave to
go on shore, and being refused he
asked the reasons of refusal and
expestulated: "If I ask for leave

deck with a stigma on my back."
"By George, sir," cried the cap
tain, "If I catch you walking up
