Ayer's Hair Vigor keeps tho hair soft

freshness of youth, causes It to grow
luxuriantly, eradicates Dandruff, cures
all scalp diseases, and is tho most clean

AVFR'Q Hair Vigor has given me
n 1 lll 0 perfect satisfaction. I was
nearly I)ald 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.

the falling, and restored my hair to its

THE LITTLE HIGH OHALE.
It Stirred Up Old Memories m the
There was an auction at one of
the down town auction houses re
cently. A pale, sad-faced woman,
in a plain calico gown, stood in a
crowd. The loud-voiced auction
eer finally came to a lot of plain
and somewhat worn funiture. It
had belonged to tho pale woman
and was being sold to satisfy the
mortgage on it.
One by one the articles were
sold, the old bureau to one, the
rocker to another, and the bed
stead to a third. Finally the auc
tioneer held out a child's high
chair. It was old and rickety, and
as the auctioneer held it up every
body laughed everybody except
the pale-faced woman. A tear
trickled down her cheek.
The auctioneer saw it and some
how a lump seemed to come up in
his throat and his gruff voice grew
soft. He remembered a little high
chair at home, and how it had once
filled his life with sunshine.
It was empty now. The baby
laugh, the two little hands that
were once held out to greet "p3pa"
from the high chair were gone for
ever. He saw the pale-faced wom
an's piteous looks and knew that
in her eye the little rickety high
chair was more precious than if it
had been made of gold and stud
ded with diamonds.
In imagination he could see
the little dimpled cherub which it
once held; could see the chubby
little fist grasping the tin rattle
box and pounding the chair full of
nicks; could see the little feet
which had rubbed the paint off of
tho legs; could hear the crowing
and laughing in glee, and now
the little chair was empty. He
knew there was an aching void in
the pale-faced woman's heart;
there was an Lis own.
Somehow the day may come and
go, but you never get over it.
There is no one to dress in the
morning, no one to put to bed at
"Don't laughl" said the auction
eer softly, as someone facetiously
offered ten cents. "Many of you
have little empty high chairs at
home which money would not
tempt you to part with." Then
he handed the clerk a bill out of
his own pocket and remarked:
"Sold to the woman over there,"
and as the pale-faced woman
walked out, with the little high
chair clasped in her arms, and
tears streaming down her cheeks,
the crowd stood back respectfully,
and there was a suspicious moist
ure in the eyes of the man who
had bid 10 cents. Detroit Free

SPEAKING THE TEHTE
The Effect of Personal Veracity on The
Strength of a Nation.
It is reported of a certain col
lege in the United States that the
one offense which the faculty will
not forgive is the offense of lying.
A student convicted of this breach
is not allowed to stay in the insti
tution. It is well known how
stern the code at "West Point is in
regard to veracity. The Romans
in their best days set the highest
value on truthful speaking, and
the story of Eegulus is familiar to
every school boy. It is so mean
and contemptible to lie, and the
one lie breeds so many other lies
to bolster it up, and the habit so
saps all ideas of honesty as to lead
to other transgressions that, alike
in private and public life, the liar
should bo made to feel the degra
dation of his conduct, and, if pos
sible, induced to reform. "With
out confidence, human relations
would be wholly confused and un
stable. Most affairs proceed on
faith in the spoken or written
word. Every lie, to some extent,
disturbs the equipoise. It is ex
ceedingly fortunate that, as a rule,
candor predominates and iaise-
hood is tho exception. Most
right minded people early learn to
recoil from the stain and stigma ot
false speech and dealing, and the
community never quite forgives a
convicted liar. The nations in
which personal veracity is exacted
are the strong and responsible na
tions. Itwas in the vigorous days
of Persia that tho three things in
culcated were to ride a horse, shoot
a bow and sneak the t'uth. The
lying communities are the weak
and vicious ones.

Talking to a machine: "But I

I don't see," said Mr. McGuire,
as he sat in the stern of the vessel,
