Among the- things which may best ba done tc enhance personal beauty is the daily use of Ayer's Haii Vigor. No mattei what the color ol the hair, this prepa ration gives it a lus tre and pliancy that adds greatly to its charm. Should the hair be thin, harsh, dry, or turning gray, Ayor's Hair Vigor will rcstoro the color, bring out a new growth, nud render the old soft and shiny. For keeping the scalp clean, cool, and healthy, there is no better prcpara'ion in the market. " I am free to confess that a trial of Ayer's Hair Vigor ha convinced me tiiat H Is a genuine article. Its uso has not only caused the hair of my wife and daughter to bs Abundant and Glossy, but it has given my rather stunted mus tache a respectable length and appear ance." R. Britton, Oakland, Ohio. "My hair was coming out (without any assistance from my wife, either). I tried Ayer's Hair Vigor, using only one bottle, and I now have as tine a head of hair as any one could wish for." R. T Schmittou, Dickson, Tenn. " I haro used Ayer's Hair Vigor in my family for a number of years, and re gard it as the best hair preparation I know of. It keens tho scalp clean, the hair soft and lively, ami preserves the original color. My wife has used It for a long time with most satisfactory re sults." Benjamin M. Johnson, SI.

Sawmills Stopped and Menand Teams Standing Idle Good for Sick . and Poor, bnt Disastrotu to fiuslnes.?. New England is experiencing one of the most remarkable seasons recorded in its history. There has been so far this winter no excuse for California or Flor ida trips, for the salubriousnessof one and tho warmth of the -other has been transplanted to this bleak region. Since November 25th not an inch of snow has fallen in this section, and last night for the first time this year the temperature has fallen to freezing. All over New England the ground is brown and bare, and the road3 and rivers open. Last week the Kennebec river, for the hrst time in its known history, reopened for navi gation, while throughout Massa chusetts and southern New Eng land sap has begun to run in the trees and bird are making thpir appearance in the orchards. This condition of affairs, while a source of satisfaction to orchardists and the poor, is still disastrous, as it has completely paralyzed the two principal winter industries of New England, viz , lumbering and ice harvesting. Reports lrom the lumbering regions of Maine are discouraging, and the lumber in dustry is at. a stand-still. One firm, for example, in Franklin county made arrangements early in the season on a contract to cut 5,000,000 feet of good original growth still standing. The chop pers easily cut it down, and it lies yet on tho ground, the 50 teams and 200 men standing idle, as it Is impossible, for lack of snow, to get it to the river, and thus to the mill. In all Maine only two of the many mills aro running, and then the snow is barely sufficient for the timber to be got to the mill, where it is being sfacked, as the river and the depot are out of reach. Consequently the timber might as well have been left stand ing. It is estimated that 5,000 men and 1,000 horses are idle, due to the backward season, and the loss to the contractors will be im mense. This of course will prove a god-send to the Canadians, who are already preparing to supply the demand NEXT SUilMEH, And it will give a big impetus to the Joggins raft enterprises. All these lumbermen are engaged by the season, and it is estimated that $5,000,000 capital is losing its in terest, let alone the cost of sup porting such an army of men and beasts in consequence of the back ward winter. The same disaster threatens the ice dealers. They have, as usual, made elaborate preparations for the regular harvest, and as a re sult the large firms have a raft of idle laborers on their hands. So poor is the outlook at the regular sources of supply that two large artinciai ice manufacturing lirms have been incorporated here. The ice men in desperation have taken into view certain small lakes and ponds in the extreme northern portions of New Hampshire, where they hope to get ice. There arc no railway connections near there, and as it will bo necessary to erect ice houses on the spot in lo cations which may never more be used, and the transportation of the building material and machinery to these pouds and the long jour ney having to be lindtTgone to get the ice to a railroad will necetsi tate a large outlay, taken into con sideration with the immense amount of idle capital invested in this business elsewhere, it may be appreciated what a loss will be in flicted if the weather does not change. New 5fork, Philadel phia and Baltimore depend largely on Nrw England for their ice, but it looks as if the latter will have to look elsewhere for the ice this year. To show how low tha sup ply on baud is, it is only neces sary to mention that Boston con sumes 700,000 tons annually, and at present on hand to meet this there is less than 200,000 tons, which will only last until, June, and there has not yet' been cut a single fiotof new ice. J . TIIE EECOED Eack for the past sixty years falls to show such a winter. So back ward is it that a total footing up of its temperature each day from December 1st to date, compared with a normal winter, shows the present season to be 400 degrees warmer. The railroads are not complain ing. Winter makes serious in roads upon their treasury, simply to keep the lines open from snow drifts. There was less than usual amount of snow last winter, still it cost the roads running out of Bos ton as follews: Boston and Maine $90,000. Fitchburg 40,000, Bos ton and Albany and Old Colon railroads $70,000 each, while in Boston the street lines spent $70, 000 in moving snow. One storm' will cost the street lines over $6,000. Tho farmers are anxious, how ever. The sap has in many places begun to run, especially in the maple trees. A sudden cold freez ing this would ruin the sugar run. Due to tho intensely cold March last year the maple sugar crop of last year was a failure, and the market had to depend on the left over stock of 1887. This is now exhausted, and prices arc going up rapidly, and if this year's sup ply fails there will he no s.ugar at all. This is in itself a loss of near ly a million dollars to a poor but iudustrious class. Eastern Letter.

In Tte Pacific The events in Samoa may be regarded as the commencement of the struggle lor the control of the Pacific. The Russians, as soon as their railroads are extended, will be in force at the Amoor river and along the eastern shoro of Siberia. i liey aro now intrenched at Vladi vostock. The French are estab lished at Tonquin and some ot the island groups of the Pacific. The English command in Hindostan. They arc dominant in British Co lumbia, Australia, Fiji, Hongkong and the Straits settlements. The Germans are demonstrating on the eastern shoro of Africa. The United States has over 1,000 miles of sea coast abutting on the Puci fio, exclusive of Alaska. Along that vast stretch of shoro the mili tary strength of sixty-five millions of warlike people c;iu be drawn up. Clearly, therefore, we are the strongest power in the PaeifiV. All other nations hold points far removed from the basis of their supplies of men and material. The great fact in the history of man kind during the centuries to coma will be the development of the commerce of the Pacific. Around it are ranged thrcc-lourths of the population of the world. Tu com parison to its tradu that of the Atlantic in time will sink ii.to in significance. To abandon any position of advantage now would be ruinous and perhaps fatal to our supremacy in the future.
