How You Can Tell if Your Hair is
Even if you have a luxuriant head of
hair you may want to know whether it is
in a healthy condition or not. 98 per
cent of the people need a hair tonic.
Pull a hair out of your head; if the
bulb at the end of the root is white and
shrunken, it proves that the hair is dis
eased, and requires prompt treatment if
its loss would be avoided. If the bulb
is pink and fall, the hair ie healthy.

Tuesday afternoon the special meet
ing of the Monroe Commercial club was
held in the to n ball, and routine busi
ness was transacted such as listening to
the reports of committees and communi
cations. The bridge proposition was al
so up for discussion, and a committee
was appointed to measure the river again
while the ice was solid, so an exact meas
urement could be gotten. Several mem
bers of the club and residents from Loup
township were present and took active
part in the meeting. A number of new
members were enrolled, and when the
club adjourned it was until Thursday
evening for the annual election of officers
and directors for 1911.
Friday the ice on the river became so
soft that it was unsafe for farmers from
the south side to haul loads to Monroe,
and after hauling two loads that morn
ing they decided to quit and await cold
er weather. While the ice was strong
enough all those who had grain to mar
ket put in their time hauling, and sold
as much as possible. The distance Baved
in hauling means considerable to the
Loup township farmers, as they could
make two trips to Monroe in the same
time as they made one elsewhere. These
farmers should not be compelled to con
fine their marketing of grain in Monroe
to a few days during the winter when
the ice is heavy, but should have a per
manent bridge to cross on.

How a Meaning Changes.
"Cheat" is a word that now has a
very ugly sound. To cheat a man Is to
defraud him. Originally the word con
veyed no such meaning. The old word
"escheat" referred to the dues that fell
to the crown. It came from the French
echoir (Latin, excadere). The modern
meaning that attaches to the word tells
a sad talc of the extortion and greed
that must have been practiced in col
lecting the dues.
