The Blue and the Gray.
Both men and women are apt to feel a little
blue, when the gray hairs begin to show. It's
a very natural f wling. In the normal condition
of things gray hairs belong to advanced age.
They have no business whitening the head of
man or woman, who has not begun to go
down the slope of life. As a matter of fact,
the hair turns gray regardless of age, or of
life's seasons ; sometimes it is whitened by
sickness, but more often from lack of care.
When the hair fades or turns gray there's no
need to resort to hair dyes. The normal color
of the hair Is restored and retained by the use of
Ayer's Hair Vigor.

Heems to Have Disliked Women.
Probably the most confirmed mis
ogynist who ever lived was a wealthy
old bachelor who recently died In
Vienna. After his dentil a bundle of
documents wi'g discovered among his
belongings, labeled: "Attempts by my
family to put me under the yoke of
matrimony." In this packet were six
ty two letters, the dates ranging from
1835 to 1H!W, a sufficient proof of the
tenacity of his relations. So afraid
was this strange man of even sitting
near a woman that whenever he went
to a theater he booked three seats. In
order that he might have one on either
side of him empty. Whenever travel
ing Ina railway carriage he was always
! fareful to smoke a large, foul-smelling
pipe, to Keep nwny uiiruuers or me le
mnle sex. In his will he said: "I beg
that my executors will see that I am
burled where there js no woman in
terred, eitiie'r to the right or left of me.
rihould this not be practicable In the
ordinary course of things. I direct that
they purchase three graves, and bury
me iu the middle one of the three, leav
ing the two others unoccupied."
A Valuable Witness.
At a recent trial before u .New York
udge, it was thought Important by
the counsel to determine the length of
time certain "two quarters of beef,
two hogs and one sheep" remulned In
nn express wagon in front of the
plaintiff's store before they were taken
hway hy the defendant. The witness
was a (lerman, whose knowledge of
English was very' limited, but he testi
fied in a very plain, straightforward
Way to having carried It out and put It
Into the n foresaid wagon.
Then the following dialogue ensued:
"Stnto to tho Jury how long It was
after you took the meat from the store
and put it into the wagon before It was
taken a way," said the counsel.
"Now, I cannot tell dot," replied the
witness. "1 dinks 'bout dwelvo feet.
I not say near us dnt."
"You don't understand me. How long
was It from the time the meat left Che
store, and wns put In the wagon, before
It was luken nwny by the defendant?"
"Now, 1 know not vat you ask dat
for. Der vugou he van back tip mlt dor
sldevalk, end dat's s boost aa It vas.
You dell me how long der sldevalk vns.
Den feet? Dwelve feet? Den I dells
how long It vaa."
"I don't want to find out how long
the sidewalk was, but I want to know
(speaking very slowly) how long thin
meat wns In the wagon before It was
"Ob, datl Veil, now, I not sold any

"Is here, I want to know how long
It was twfore the meat was taken away,
after it was put into the wagonV
"Now you try to get me in a isonipe,"
the witness replied, lisiking very know
ingly at the counsel. "Dat meat vas

that in the early days of the colonies
