FOR RESTORING GRAY HAIR TO ITS
NATURAL VITALITY AND COLOR.
It is a most agreeable dressing, uliicli
is at once harmless and effectual, for prc-
nrvinj the hair. It restores, with the
J'.s ami freshness of youth, faded or gray,
l:t;lit, and red hair, to a rich Lrown, or deep
1 lack, as may lie desired. By its use thin
Lair is thickened, and baldness often
though not always cured. It checks falling
r f the hair immediately, and causes a new
growth in all cases where the glands are
not decayed; while to Lrashy, weak, or
otherwise diseased hair, it imparts vitality
and strength, and renders it pliable.
The Ticoii cleanses the scalp, cures and
prevents the formation of dandruff; and,
ly its cooling, stimulating, and soothing
'a ;-opcrties, it heals most if not all of the
humors and diseases peculiar to the scalp,
Keeping it cool, clean, and soft, tinder
which conditions diseases of the scalp and
hair are impossible.
A3 a Dressing for Ladies' Hair,
The ViGon is incomparable. It is color
less, contains neither oil nor dye, and will
not soil white cambric It imparts an
u rreeaLIvi and lasting perfume, and as an
article for the toilet it i economical and
unsurpassed in its excellence.

INew England Farmer.
Lcouie Cameron, lazily looking out of
a low window upon a garden llaming
with autumn tints and sunset glow, lifted
a pair of soft dark eyes to Mrs. Tollman's
face. It was au anxious face just at that
moment, and, being usually full of placid
content, the anxiety was very apparent to
Leonio. 5o, after her first care.ebS glance,
tlio straightened herself out iu her low
chair, mnt said, quietly, yet with every
appearance of interest
'What is the muttcrf"
Ail awkward pause followed that ques
tion. Mrs. Tollman fidgeted under the in
quiring giauco of the dark eyes, cleared
her throat twice, and linaiiy said with
"John Pur her."
Miss Cnmeioa'd f;icc seemed to freeze.
It was a very beautiful face, with pride
lor a leading expression. Sweetness
lurked iu thu mouth, intellect beamed
from the radiant eyes, but pride shadow
ed all. It carried tnc small head grace
fully erect, il twept tlie folds of the rich
dresses with a regal motion. It touched
tho small patrician hands, and was evi
dent in ihc wed moduli icd tones .-f the
"There," Mrs. Tollman said, despairing
ly, "I've made you mad nlrcauy, and
haven't said anything."
"1 am not mail,' Ltonie answered, and
there certainly lurked a smilo iu her
mouth at the good woman's consterna
tion; "but you have not told uc what
"It's it s John, Miss Cameron, aud,"
then rapidly, as if the words were foiced
by a Kar of her own inability to finish
her self-appointed task, aim hurried on:
"He's my nephew, .Miss, us you know,
though his father's a rich niau, very rich,
audJoliu is above his mother's place iu
her Lie. She's dead, and John was spoil
ed somewhere between the year she died
aud two years ago. 1 ilou'i know where
he took to bail ways. lie- was brought
up an idler upou his father's money, and
from idleness to drinking, gambling and
bad ways is an easy road. His fatuer is
a hard man and he thrust him out nearly
a year ao ami disinherited him. He
came here for I loved him. I've nothing
else to love; husband and children in the
grave-yard, so I love John."
There was a piteous pleading in the
woman's face, but Lconic's was blank,
save lrom an air of polite interest,
"He was most desperate when he came
here, but I've coaxed him up a little. But
but, U, Miss Cameron, you know w hat I
want to say. You are beautiful, rich a
lady far aljovc me in education aud only
staying here for country quiet. I've no
right to liud fault but, but, don't llirt
Willi John. He is in trouble, despondent,
disinherited, and he's falling in love with
you as fast as he can. 1 believe if you
play with him, he will kill himself, body
Fairly out ot breath with her own earn
est utterance, Mrs. Tollman paused, look
ing pleadingly iu Leonie Cameron's face.
The expression of polite interest never
wavered, a3 that young lady said:
"If I understand you aright, you wish
mo to ignore your nephew. It is not so
easy, as he is in your house, so I bad bet
ter leave it."
"Goodness!'' cried the widow, aghast
at this interpretation of her words. "I
never meant that. Where can you fiud
another boarding place near here?"
"I can return to London."
"I've put my foot in it. John will nev
er forgive me," said Mrs. Tollman, discon
solately. But there was no sympathy in Leonie'a
face, and she turned away at last, per
plexed and more anxious liiau ever. And
iconic, sinking back in her chair again,
looked at the sunset clouds and variegat
ed foliage, and thought perhaps it was
time to return to London.
She had come to S , weary with a
round of fashionable life, tired of flattery,
dancing, flirting, ami she had found rest
and quiet under Mrs. Tollman's motherly
care. She was rich, richer far than the
landlady had any idea of; but she haduo
near relative, oniy a second cousin to keep
her home aud play propriety.
Society constituted itself her amateur
guardian, and lying back in her cushion
ed chair, in the sunset glow, she wonder
ed indolently what society would say
about John Furbcr. It would grant him
a rare perfection of manly beauty of face
and form, aud forgive the evident traces
of dissipation, if il was only known that
lie was the sou of a rich man, and had
been educated an idler by proiessiou.
Uut in what horror it wouid turn away
with uplifted hands when it was known
that he was disinherited, with no liomc
but a room in the house of a widowed
aunt ckLag out her narrow .income by
taking boarders. It would smile at his
biting sarcasm, his brilliant conversation
and cynical sneers, if he was reinstated
in his father's lavor, but how rude these
would be in a poor man.
Leonie, from thinking of society's opin
ions, quite uncousciously glided iuto con
sidcring her own. This dark.-browcd man
had mads a fair portion of her Summer
pkiuturu for three months, had been hei
cavalier in many country walks, drives
and sails, and quoted poetry under trees,
sung in a superb baritone Uou murmur
ing waters, looked into her eyes ou a
moonlit porch, aud whispered deiicately
WOiduU Uattery. No more than many
another man had done. A beauty aud
rich, Miss Camerou had looked upon more
than one lan"Uitthinr suitor, and lorirot
ten lii in when her amusement wearied
her. Scarcely a llirt lor she encouraged
no downright lovemaking, but a beauti
ful, fascinating woman who wounded
Leans witli merely careless grace.
Musing in tlie sunset, it was impressed
upon the proud heart Unit unconsciously
4lic Iiau poisoned a lite that was already
sinking. There were capabilities for bet
ter things than dissipation and suicide in
John Furbcr, and she shivered as she
thought he might be upon some danger
ous precipice, waiting lor the clasp of the
hand lo draw him back, or its tcduIsc to
throw hini over. She pussod iu review
her host of male friends, bad found none

opposite the low window, looking at her.
A vivid flush staiued her check as nesaid:

bis eyes, the pleading in his voice.
Only for one moment, close now to the
low window, before a hand like a snow

"Be a man for my sake."
She was gnc before he spoke again,

upon a possibility of this new life.

A great deal has been said about the
fraud in the vote of 1876, claiming that
Tildon had a majority vote. Tha X.
Y. Time3 has accurately figured the
increased vote of the states voting
for Tilden and shows conclusively
that the fraud was the other way and
that in many places they cast more
votes than could possibly be given leg

of the country, II ayes received a fair
THE YEAU18G0 AS A PIVOTAL POINT.
The last y ear within the- taking of
the census, under authority of Con
gress, aud a Presidential election oc
curred during the same year was in
1800. For that reason i860 will bo
used as the initial year in the follow
ing exhibit of statistics:
The population of tha "State of Con
necticut, according to the Xatioiml Cen
sus in 1300, was 400,147. The vote they
cast for President in that vear aggre
gated 80,950. The proportion of voters
to tho entire papulation wa3 1 t 5
08-100. In the year 1870 the population
lation ef that Stuto was returned as
being 037,454. The increase in ten
years was 77,307. The annual average
was 7,730. Multiply this increase by 0,
and in 187G the population was 5!)3,841.
Divide this number by 3 57-100, the
ratio of voters to population aforesaid,
and, iu our Centennial year their vote
could not have been above 102,C!9. The
vote returned as cast in 1870, aggregat
ed 121,742, being 19,033 too many. In
1900 Xew Jersey cast 617 fewer votes
with 08,194 more people, ami agreat-
er number of voters to the population.
In the year 1800 the population of
the State of Indiana, as per Govern
ment census, was 1,350,428. For Pres
ident there were cast 272,205 votes.
The proportion of voters to the people
was 1 to 4 and Uo-100. I en years
thereafter, in 1870, the population was
returned as being 1,080,637. This was
an increase of 330,108, an annual aver
age of 32,021 Six years afterward, in
1870, the population would be 1,878,703,
Yielding an honest vote amounting to
378,859, They returned, however, aB
the number cast, 431.070, being 152,211
too many. But, then, Indiana borders
upon Kentucky, aud the colonizing of
voters, not needed south of the Ohio,
The State of New Jersey in 18G0 con
tained 072 035 people. For President
that year they cast 121,135 votci. The
ratio of voters to population was one
to five and 54-tem In ten yeare, 1870,
the population had increased to 90 G,-
090, as per National census. This
shows an annual average of 23,400. In
six years more, 1876, the population
would be 1,040 532. Then, at our last
Presidential election, the vote should
not have been above 188,632: they re
turned 220,234. being 31,602 of an un
The census reports for 1800 show the
population of the Statfc of New York
to have been at that date, 3,880,735.
That year, for President, the votes re
turned as cast aggregated 675,150. Then
the latio of voters to population was
I to 5 and 74-100. I3y the year 1875
when a census was taken under State
law the population is set down at 4,-
705,203; an increase in fifteen years of
824,437; an annual average of 824,437;
an annual average of 54,965. Add
this number to the population returned
in 1875, and we have for 1870 a popu
lation aggregating 4,700,173. The vote,
therefore, in the Centennial year ceuld
not have been, hot: estly, above 828,288;
but no less than 1,015,302 votes w ere
returned as cast. This was a fraudu
lent excess of 187, 214 votes. Evident
ly, this was the result of ballot-stuifing,
unlawful colonizing along the ilnc-s of
canal, and false counting.
TrLE RATIO QUESTION.
By adding together the ratios of vot
ers to population in the four States of
Connecticut, Indiana, New Jersey, and
New York, and dividing the aggregate
by tho number of States, we have as
the average ratio, 1 to 5-48.
KOT SUSPECTING THE GREAT WRONGS.
Honest, innocent, artless persens
incapable of deliberate wreng doiag
themselves, and unwilling to suspect
evil of thers suppose that in propor
tion as Tilden's vote increased in Con
necticutIndiana, New Jereey, and New
York, a corresponding decrease took
place in the Republican vole; that to
the extent Tilden's vote is made to be
larger, in these States, than was that
for Greeley, the Republican vote fell
ef from the vole of Grant in 1872.
Such, however, is not the case. On
the other hand, for President Hayes,
Connecticut gave 8,390, Indiana 21.
804. New Jersey 11,801. and New York.
48,571 aggregating 90,592 votes more
than these four States ever before cast
for any Republican candidate for the
COMPARISON OK VOTES.
To multiply the increased vote for
President TJaycs oyer tho last and high
est for General Grant 90,592 by 5,
48,100, the average ratio of voters to
population in these States Rives there
in, in four years, an increase of popu
lation aggregating 4C6.877. The actu
al increase was 686,100 This actual
increase is sufficient to produce the in
crease vota for President Hayes aud
leave 489,203 people over yielding 31,
505 votes for Tilden, of an iucroaso
over the vota counted for Greeley.
Whereas the number claimed for Til
den aggregated 210,122, as follows, viz:
Connecticut 10,004, Iinliana-19,894, Now

requiring 1,317,009 of an increase of

As has just been said, to multiply
the increase voto returned for Samuel
J. Tilden by 5 48-100, tlie figures used in
ascertaining the increase of population
arising from the iucreaso vote of Presi
Hayes aud the average ratio of these
four States gives an increaso of po
pulation amounting te 1,317,009, with
out counting one for President Hayes.
As tha actual increaso was 080,100,
this fictituous increase fer Tilden i.i
630,901) more than the reality, if all
were counted for him. These unac
countable 630,909 people will yield
115,024 voters. So that, witbwut al
lowing no increase vote for President
Hayes, the increaso vote returned for
Samuel J. Tilden amounts to 115,021
more than there was any population
to yield them. They, therefore, only
could arise from fraud.
IIO'.V FRAUDS AKE COMMITTED.
There aro, and there can be, only
three methods whereby tho votes of
either party can be increased, they arc:
First, by an equal decrease- in tho volt,
to which tho other party, ordinarily,
would be untitled: second, by a corres
ponding increase of the entire popula
tion in the States, where tho increase
of the entire population in tho Mate or
States, whore the occurs; third, by cor
ruption, of the ballot boxes by inject
ing into them spurious tickets; by re
peating by fraudulent personation of
absent voters; by false colonizing; or,
if none of these should be resorted t,
then, by fraudulent counting. As 15-,
024 of tha votes returned for Tilden.
have no population behind them, they
can not be accounted for in any man
ner but as tho result of gro.ss fraud -there
being no corresponding increase
of population, and there being bj equal
decrease in the Republican vote iu
these four States, but an actual ia
HAYES INCREASE VOTE.
President Hayes received a hand
some increase vote but neither unna
tural, unlawful, or excessive over th
last aud largest vote, in these four
states, for General Grant; therefore,
the increase vote, 115,024. returned for
Samuel J. Tilden, must have aiided to
it the 90.592 increase vote given to
President Hayes iu order to shaw its
enormity aggregating 205,610 of ex
cess of all honest increase votes were
given to Tilden. To deduct theso205,
010 from the 240,122 votes of increase,
over Greeley, returned for Tilden,
leaves an honest increase vote for Til
den amounting to just 34,500. This,
too, as will be seen, is the exact num
ber of votes that the lawful increaso
over and above the increaso vote for
President Hayes amounts to. as pro
duced by the actual increase of popula
tion. 1H TI LDEN ENTITLED TO THESE STATES ?
The question may be asked: Would
the increaso voto counted for Tilden iu
these four States be suflicient to over
ride the vote for President Hayes if
the 115,024 votes aro thrown aside?
Let us see! To give Tilden the elector
al votes of these four States, the Dem
ocratic manipulators returned tho fol
lowing inajorite8 for their candidates,
viz: Connecticut, 2,900; Indiana, 5,515 ;
New Jerser, 12,445; and New York,
32,742 aggregating 53,002. less by 61.
424 votes than the wholly accountable
115,024. So that does not remove the
odor of fraud. It adds to tho stench.
THE OTHER LARGEST DEMOCRATIC
Prioi to the fraudulent vote rtturn
cd for Samuel J. Tilden, the largest
vote ever returned for any Democratic
candidate for the Presiuaney, was that
of 1872, for Horace Greeley. When,
therefore, any Democrat or any Re
publican apologist for the Democracy
asserts that the vote of 1872 was
"light one," be should be required to
produco all past official votes and com

which never participate in Presiden

a claim, the following statistics bavo

vote over that of Greeley.
ALL ALLOWED TO TILDEK, UUT NOT
As will be seen, the forgoing statis
tics allow all the increase vote of tho
entire country to have been cast for
Tilden; and even then, the outrageous
and startling increase is quite eiiCMgh
to frighten every honest man iu tiu
lnad. When, however, the increaso f

figures, which produced the in
