painters are pushing their work and the
heating and plumbing connections are
being put in. To one who has not been
in the building for some time, the beauty
of the interior is a surprise. The furni
ture and gymnastic appartus has all
been ordered and its completeness and
character is second to none in any west
ern state. The local men in charge of
this enterprise are holding nightly meet
ings, planning for the finishing details of
the building and preparing plans for the
carrying out of the winter's work. The
general secretary. D. Burr Jones, has
already established his office in thebuild

Certain Ingredients that Really Grow
Hair when Properly Combined.
Resoroin is one of the most effective
germ destroyers ever discovered by
science, and in connection with Beta
Napthol, whioh is both germicidal and
antiseptic, a combination is formed whioh
destroys the germs which rob the hair of
its natural nourishment, and also creates
a clean, healthy condition of the scalp,
which prevents the development of new
Pilocarpin, although not a coloring
matter or dye, is well-known ingredient
for restoring the hair to its natural color,
when the loss of hair has been caused by
a disease of the scalp.
These ingredients in proper combina
tion, with alcohol added as a stimulant
and for its well defined nourishing pro
perties, perfect the most effective rem
edy that is known for scslp and hair
We have a remedy whioh is chiefly
composed of these ingredients, in com
bination with other extremely invalu
able medicinal agents. We guarantee it
to so positively cure dandruff and to
grow hair; even though the scalp in
spots is bare of hair. If there is any
vitality left in the roots, it has a glazed
shiny appearanoe, it's an indication that
baldness is permanent, but in every
other inatanoe, baldness is ourable.
We want everyone troubled with scalp
disease or loss of hair to try Rexall "93"
Hair Tonic. If it does not cure dand
ruff and grow hair to the satisfaction of
the user, we will without question or
quibble return every cent paid us for it.
We print this guarantee on every bottle.
It has effected a positive cure in 93 per
cent of cases where put to a practical
Rexall "93" Hair Tonio is entirely un

anything else we know of for the pur

A contributor assures us that the
following is a faithful and accurate
report of an entirely sober speech re

Plum streets. And be quick about it,
too!" Harper's Weekly.
! An Man of Massacres.
Hayti. the West Indian Island, to
which public attention has just recent
ly been directed, has been the scene
of more massacres than any other
place on earth.
They began with the coming of Co
lumbus and the rabble root that fol
lowed him. In a few years its 3,oev,
090 of gentle, brown-skinned Inhabi
tants had perished utterly, exter
minated by fire and sword and by
forced labor In the mines.
Next the buccaneers seized the un
happy Island and wreaked vengeance
on the Spaniards. Presently came the
French, and for a brief space there
was some semblance of peace. But in
1793 the negroes revolted and mur
dered practically all the whites.
On account of these atrocities,
frightful reprisals took place when
France, in due course, reconquered the
island. But the negroes bided their
time, and presently rose again under a
ruffian named Dessalimes. This time
they did the thing thoroughly. Not
only were all the Europeans put to
death, but all having any admixture
of white blood in their veins suffered
a like fate. In all it is computed that
5,000,000 men, women and children
have met with violent deaths on this
island of massacres since the inrtuding
white man first set foot on its palm
Can This Be True?
If a woman admits to herself that

"What have you got?" inquired the
