Have you ever thought nrhy
your hair is falling out ? It is
because you are starving your
hair. If this starvation continues
your hair will continue to fall.
There is one good hair food.
It is Aycr's Hair Vigor. It goes
right to the roots of the hair
and gives thca just the food
that they need. The hair stops

In the clear heaven of her delightful eye.
An angel-guard of loves and graces lie;
Around her knees domestic duties meet.
And fireside pleasures gambol at her feet.
Where shall that land, that spot of earth

Lawtoa's Bravery Was Great.
I could not help but be amused when
I examined the church at Paranaque,
says a Pasay, P. I., correspondent of
Indianapolis News. The reports sent
out had spoken of the total demolition
of it by the bombardment of the fleet.
But, nevertheless, it is standing there
peacefully, used as barracks by the
soldiers. It is true a few stones here
and there are misplaced, a stairway to
the choir damaged and a sacrilegious
shell has utterly destroyed the "heav
en" above the altar. The insurgents
used a small cannon from the belfry,
and it can serve the same purpose for
us yet if needed. Gen. Lawton's or
ders are very explicit He insists that
there be no firing of any kind until we
have been fired upon. Amigos are all
around us, and they are in great dan
ger from careless firing. The general
is now riding a beautiful white horse,
and in this connection a good story Is
told by him, how recently, when a de
tachment of marines were ashore to
assist in an assault they themselves
were assaulted by the insurgents, and
while the marines were hugging the
ground and wishing every blade of
grass were a stump, up rides Gen.
Lawton. The men s?y that it seemed
he was on the largest white horse that
ever was, and with a large white hat.
too, and making a tremendous amount
of noise. He was laughing as gayly
as the Mausers that were singing about
him, and nodded and chatted with his
staff. It was revelation, so the ma
rines say, of what all absence of fear
was, even when under the most dan
gerous conditions. Shortly afterward
one of his staff was shot through both
knees, but Lawton did not ride away
until he completed his work. He has
the headquarters of his division here
in town in a modest house on a quiet
side street. I found it so crowded that
the clerks were compelled to do their
work on the porches. He often takes
bis son out with him on his rides
along the front, and it is an all-wise
Providence that has spared them, for
his bravery is splendid in its daring.
Gen. Wheeler expects to get fat now,
as he is getting his fill of fighting. The
fore part of this week he was sitting
on top of one of the intrenchments
enjoying the cool of the evening.
While sitting there dangling his feet
like a schoolboy and with his back to
the front, 'the insurgent rifles began
their evening tune. The men around
him were horrified to have him thus
expose himself, but unwilling to stoop
down themselves as long as he was
sitting on top. On one side of him a
bullet took out a seam from a man's
trousers, on the other tide a canteen
strap was cut in two. The old general
got excited, and yelled to the men to
lie down at once, never thinking of his
own safety until one of the officers
pulled him down.
Twelve Men Charge Six Baadred.
A medaj of honor the-highest com
pliment which can be given to an
American soldier has been recom
mended for presentation to each of
the ten surviving members of a band
of twelve scouts who performed a
brave feat near San Miguel de May
ume Ori, in the Philippines, on May
13, 1S99. These scouts were under the
lead of William H. Young, a civilian
who had been a famous scout on 'the
western plains of America, and whom
Gen. Lawton made his chief of scouts
in the San Ysidro campaign this year.
On the day mentioned, Gen. Lawton
was advancing on San Miguel. A
small body of Oregon volunteers came
suddenly upon the enemy, drawn up
in an advantageous position in front
of San Miguel, the right flank resting
on a stream, the left on an elevation
made secure by a dense thicket. It
was afterward ascertained that the
Filipino force in this position num
bered about six hundred men. With
out waiting for the re-enforcing bat
talion to support them, or to be in a
position to do so, this squad of ten
scouts, led by Mr. Young and by Pri
vate James Harrington of the Oregons,
an old frontiersman twelve men in
all charged the enemy's line, about
one .hundred and fifty yards distant
The line fired, then wavered, aud then
completely gave way, to be followed up
by the re-enforcing battalion, and driv
en from the city and environs of San
Miguel, a place of great importance.
Young and Harrington, while shouting
and cheering and leading the men up,
were shot and killed.
Waulae- of the Grand Army.
From the New York World: One or
the bravest "standing armies" in the
world is dying out The Grand Army
of the Republic, that band of gray
haired -warriors whose pride and dear
est recollection it is that they once
served their country, is shrinking with
appalling swiftness to the point where
It will be only a memory of good deeds
and brave men who have done them.
Statistics as to the membership and
death rate of the organization tell a
story as touching as the tenderest fu
neral sermon. They show that in a
few years more the roll call will be an
empty ceremony the summons to the
national encampment a vain appeal to
the heroe of 1861. Within twelve
months the year of 1898 according
to a report just issued, mors than
17,000 members of the Grand Army
died. This death rate was more than
double that of the previous year. If
the past year (1899) has shown a cor
responding decline in membership the
friends of the organization have ample
ground for the concern they express
as to Its future. The high water mark
of the Grand Army's prosperity was
not reached until some time after the
death of its founder. Dr. Benjamin F.
Stephenson. The army's excellent or
ganization, however, Is due to Dr.
Stephenson's genius as a founder. It
is set down to the eternal credit of
the army that it originated one of our'
most inspiring national holidays
Memorial day. This is the most In
teresting act in the history ot the
army and by all means the most pop
ular act of General Logan's adminis
tration. This holiday, which has been
celebrated with such fervor for thirty
years, was originally the suggestion of
a citizen of German birth, whose very
name has been forgotten. It was es
tablished by General Logan and the
leaders of the army and a few years
later made by congress a legal holiday.
Too Maeh or a Salute.
From the New York Tribune:
"When we were at Camp Merritt, in
San Francisco, last summer," said I.
R. Welles, last of the Fifty-first Iowa,
at the Hoffman House recently, "there
were a number of amusing occurrences.
You know, among the first things
taught the recruits is to salute all of
ficers. If the soldier is unarmed at
the time of meeting the officer, he
brings bis hand to his hat at six paces.
If armed, and doing sentry duty, say,
be brings his rifle to a 'present' until
the officer has passed. To understand
thoroughly my story, you must also
bear in mind that when the grade of
general is reached the form of the field
uniform differs from that of the of
ficers of inferior rank. The cut of coat
and collar is different, and there are
more buttons. In this particular case
an exceptionally raw recruit was do
ing sentry duty, when a brigadier gen
eral came along. From his uniform
the newly enlisted one felt he must
be of high rank, and for that reason
something exceptional In the way of
a salute was bis due. So, first, he
stood stiffly, with his rifle at 'present,'
but as the general drew nearer be evi
dently felt that it was no ordinary oc
casion, and that he must make a more
ceremonious salute. Rapidly shifting
his rifle to his right shoulder, as the
general came opposite him. with his
left band he almost swept the earth
itself with his cap, so low was his bow.
The general, who was a thoroughly
good fellow, said nothing to him per
sonally, hut next day I noticed that a
general order was Issued in that bri
gade that none but experienced and
trained soldiers should hereafter be
placed on sentry duty."
The OMcer Useless Sword.
The officer is, as we all know, armed
with a sword. The public naturally
always looks upon the sword as insep
arable from the officer. It has always,
from time immemorial, been alike the
weapon of offense as well as of defense,
says Blackwood. It is besides the
badge of rank of the officer. In days
gone by the sword was doubtless a
very useful weapon of offense as also
of defense, but now it is universally
recognized that an officer would rely
more on his revolver than on his
sword. If we are to carry out the as
similation cf the officer and the pri
vate, I see nothing for it but to dis
card the sword when proceeding on
field service. This is a suggestion
which will probably stagger not only
public opinion, but possibly also a
large percentage of officers themselves.
But I know for a fact that there arc
many officers in India who are of this
way of thinking men who have done
much campaigning. Yes; the sword
belonging to the infantry officer should
be left behind when he proceeds on
active service. The time has come to
be thoroughly practical in our equip
ment for field service, and all so-called
smartness should give way to what is
really sensible and practical. The
question naturally arises: What will
you arm the officer with? To carry
out the general scheme of assimila
tion I would reply: Arm him with a
carbine the Martini-Metford for pref
erence, with a magazine attached.
And the Captala Still Wonder.
During the retreat of the first bat
talion of the Fourth Infantry from
Perez Dasmarinas on June 19 last one
of the newly enlisted men came back
to the road from the jungle, where his
company had been skirmishing. He
reported to his company commander
that he had taken two prisoners. He
was driving the prisoners before him
at the point of his rifle. The prison
ers were both old men, neatly dressed,
and did not look as though they had
been recently fighting. The captain
was annoyed. There was no safe place
in which to put the prisoners. He
could not spare the necessary men to
guard them. He did not like to set
them at liberty when to walk in any
direction from the main column meant
almost certain death, as the insur
gents were pouring in a heavy fire.
"What did you bring these men In
for?" he asked, turning on the soldier
sharply. "You ought to have more
sense." "Well," answered the soldier
slowly, "I wasn't intendin' of a-bring-in'
uv 'em in, but they jess fell on their
knee? and begged so hard that I didn't
have the heart, Capting, to knock 'em
on the hed." The captain Is wonder
ing yet whether the soldier was in
earnest or was only iaughing at him.

Three-Coruered Wrr.
When Col. Cartwell was military
governor of Norfolk under the confed
eracy, in 18G2, he ordered the British
consul to report for duty on the home
guard. To this the Englishman ob
jected on the ground of being corsul
at Norfolk. "To what government?"
asked. Col. Cartwell. "To the United
States government," was the reply.
"But you are in the Confederate states,
and you must show papers accrediting
you to the Confederate states of Amer
ica," said the colonel. "But my gov
ernment doesn't recognize you as a
government," said the consul. "Very
well, then, my government doesn't rec
ognize you as consul," briskly retorted
Col. Cartwell. "Shoulder your musket
and join your company." At this the
peacefully disposed consul threatened
to have a gunboat come and bombard
the place before he would serve.
"That's just what I'd like to see," re
turned the colonel, cheerily; "for then
the United States will fight you, as
she .claims that Norfolk is still part
of the union, and between England
and the United States fighting, w
shall go free." At last the consul ap
pealed to Mr. Benjamin, the Confeder
ate secretary of war, who ordered his
exemption from military duty, and the
"three-cornered war" so desired by
Col. Cartwell never came to pass.

gave them a thorough trial, and after a few applications I noticed
the redness and inflammation disappear. Before I had used
one box there was not a sign of Eczema left. I can truthfully
assert that $2.00 worth of CUTICURA REMEDIES cured me.
There has been no sign of its return anywhere upon my body
since I wrote you I was cured, nearly four years ago. Hardly a
month passes but what I receive a letter or some one calls and
wishes to know how I got cured, if I had Eczema bad, and if
the cure has been permanent, etc., etc. I always take pleasure in
enlightening them the best I can.

Buckle attributes the great suc
ces of Scottish men of science to
their preference for a priori or dc
ducive " argument. The following
story of similar trend was attributed
to Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman. A
Scotsman was asserting that all the.
great poets were of his nation. "Well,
but." said one, "how about Shake
speare? You can't say he was a Scots
man." To which the other replied, His
talents would justify the supposition."
