SAGE TEA WILL
AND GRAY HAIR
There Is nothing new about ths Idea of
using Sage for restoring the color of the
hslr. Our grandmothers kept their hair
dark, glossy and abundant by the use of
simple "Sago Tea." Whenever their
hsir fell out or took en a dull, faded or
streaked appearance, they made a brew
f Sage uteres, and applied It to their
balr with wonderfully beneficial effect.
Nowadays we don't have to resort to
the old-time tiresome methojl of gather
ing the herbs and making the tea. This
Is done by skillful chemists better than
we could do it ourselves; and ail we have
to do Is to call for the ready-made pro
duct. Wrath's Bags and Kulphur Hair
Remedy, containing Sage In ths proper
strength, with the addition of Sulphur,
another old-time scalp remedy.
This preparation gives youthful color
and beauty to the hslr, and Is one of the
best remedies you ran use for dandruff,
dry. feverish. Itching sralp, and falling
hair. Get a fifty cent bottle from your
druggiat today, and you will be surprised
at the quick results. All druggists sell
It. under guarantee that the money wtl
be refunded If the remedy Is net exactly

At the meeting of the city council !n
committee of the whole Monday after
noon City Treasurer L're called attention
to the condition of the street Improve
ment fund, pointing out what he con
siders the bad management of bond Is
sues and what ought to be done to save
money for the city. The greatest loss
will be on the bond Issue of 1911 which
the treasurer says can be avoided if tb?
city will at once secure It for investment
of idle funds.
Mr. l're presented a tabulated state
ment which shows that the balance tn
hand of the street Improvement fund
baa Increased from 7,J.t la 19 to
iilT.TT; tn 1312. and that with the col
lections of this year, after all charges
and other deductions are made, the prob
able balance at the end of the current
year will be. COS. 72s. 88. On this sum tta
city will collect 1 per cent, while on the
bond Issue of UU, that amounts to S3s.
'M. the Interest rate Is 4 per cent. This
difference. Mr. Vre says, will cost the
city more than Sl.Out a month unless the
1S13 bond Issue Is purchased by Uie city.
Tea Many Bonds Sold.
He adds further:
"A second reason for taking over the
S2S8.MS Issue of bonds Is because the
Issue has been miserably conceived. In
twenty-four out of sixty-seven districts
there is an over Issue of bonds. This
over issue In these districts amounts to
SCRS.n. That Is. we are selling as.KS.H
too many bonds, and will actually have
to hold all of that money In the treasury
at S per cent until the bonds In those
districts faU due In lilt, paying ' per
cent per annum, and the first bonds fail
ing due In these districts In UU amount
Money Jdlet Interest Graves.
"To put It another way, we are going
to have money from the bond sale Itself
in 191X as soon as the sale is consum
mated, with which to discharge all of
the bonds due in 1914 In those districts,
and by 1914 we will also have In the
treasury whatever money Is paid In text
in these districts.
"The bond Issue of Februsry S. 191 1
is mesersbly conceived from another
standpoint, vis.: The maturities of the
bonds In thst Issue are altogether too
late. During the whole life of that bond
Issue our cash on hand Is going to in
crease on account of desperately 1st
maturities of bonds. We can save for
the city SnO.000 on that one Issue of bonds,
simply by purchase of them. The city
will lose that toO.OOO If we let the bond
Issue get away from us.
"The matter of too large warrants be
ing issued to pay for special Improve
ments Is proved by a simple statement
of the case. We have In the banks not
less than $75, (M which Is applicable to
payments on warrants for work done.
We cannot use it because the comp
troller's office hss paid for the work with
too large warrants."
Working Out the
Between 300.000 and ftfO.000 will be re
quired to meet the obllgstlons of ths
pension system which the American Tele
phone and Telegrsph company will put
Into effect on July 1.
"In many cases," said President Vsll
In a recent interview, "a pension plan
does not mean a great deal to a company
financially. It means more to the West
ern Union, because It hss a large num
ber of employes who have long terms of
service to their credit.
"Regarding pensions for American Tel
ephone and Telegraph employes," Mr. Vail
said, "we hope to have a plan worked
out before the end of the year. Pen
sions for telephone employes is a very
different matter from pensions for tele
graph employes. The Isttcr are almost
all of one class, the operators; and tlia
average term of . service Is long. Tele
phone employes are divided into a largo
number of classes.
"To Illustrate how difficult the problem
Is, there Is a large class of girl opera
tors whose average term of service Is
comparatively short. We have many
operators in our employe who have been
with the compsny for many years, but
they are decided exceptions. We must
work out some pension plan which will
be equitable for the operators; mean
while. Individual cases are to be dealt
with on their merits, so thst employes
are not losing by reason of delay In per
fecting the plans as a whole."
Regarding telephone conversations be
tween New York and San Francisco, Mr.
Vail said that It hsd not as yet been
decided whether to utilise Western Union
wires from Denver to the coast or string
new wires. He believes the Transconti
nental telephone line will be In operation
before the end of the year, but csnnot

Bacchus let the wind out of the tlrei
on the wheels of Justice for a while yes
terday. In the old days ths wheels of
Justice got clogged occasionally, but In
this advanced age the really artistic
method of teasing the old lady Is te kr
the wind out of her tires.
It seems that John F. Payton. 'S
Webster street, is some disciple of
Bacchus. He always votes for the afore
said old sport, and whenever the occa
sion bobs up tries to get the old scout
to throw his hat Into the ring.
Payton has been serving on the dis
trict court petit Jury and last week was
put at work on the case of Byron Ingle
hart against the street mil way compsny
for SI 0,000 damages for taking liberties
with Mrs. luglehart's hip.
Friday Was Ills Jonah Day.
Friday the case was continued until
yesterdsy. Payton drew his pay and
struck out in the direction of the nearest
relief station. Shortly he was taking
his turn, saying. "This one's on me,'
and before the time came to hit the high
road for home and hash he was saying:
"Come, fill the cup, and in the fires of
Tour winter garment of repentance fling;
The bird of lime hath but a little way
To flutter snd the bird Is on the wing.''
Only not in that fancy diction. Pay
ton Is no poet If he Is something of an
About S o'clock Payton found things
getting quiet-he hasn't lived in the city
a great while and he went home to his
room at the home of Mrs. J. Gray, think
ing hs could create as much excitement
there as anywhere. This turned out to
be the correct dope.
Gettlag lata Action.
,Two or three minutes after Payton
pranced into his raises the neighbors
knew he hsd arrived. He started In on
the front door. After telling It what hs
thought of it snd saying, "You daren't
back it up or down," he made a vicious
avsautt upon It. Reaching his room, he
turned his attention to a chsir against
which he had a long-standing grudge.
When he finished there was not enough
left even to have a grudge against.
Some friendly neighbor told the police
Payton was sick and they went out to
study the situation. Psyton decided hs
was going to run the police department
and msde announcement to this effect
The officers doubted his word. They
took him down to talk it over with the
csptaln, who was busy and simply said,
"Throw him In."
Monday morning Payton was up before
Police Judge Foster charged with being
drunk snd disorderly. He didn't have
money to pay fine, but said he ought
to be turned loose because he was i
Juror and he would bet Justice was at a
standstill right now because he wasn't
in his seat in the Jury box.
Judge Foster said he would let him
off with a fine of S3 and costs, a
total of 17-50. He was allowed to go to
the court house and get S3 he had coin
ing, which, with H'jO more he had, got
But when Payton got back to the
court house Judge Sutton had found out
all about It. excused him from the case
and from the Jury panel and the case

hsd been delayed about an hour by Pay
tons absence before the cause was
learned and the agreement made to go
on without him. .

near Thirtieth street last night, was his

large as a "Htg Ben' alarm clock. It

numerous foreign innrtptions and

was that it was made for use under the

SPRING is just over the hill to the south. In a few days the grass will
be green, the trees will be budding and the smell of fresh plowed
earth will be in the air. Then will nature beckon you to the open country. .
Spring time is motoring time. Then dwellers in the cities and town? find that their motor cars bring them
close to the spring touched country. Those who live in the country find their trips to town a memorable pleasure
rather than a task. . ... ,
It ia Important to remember, however, that the many pleasure of spring time motoring sre much increased by the use of ear '
of such dependability and staunchness as to leave no doubt as to the outcome of the trip,
The Chalmers Is such a car. It runs uniformly well day after day and month after month. It adds much to motoring pleasure by
the certainty of Its performance. Not only that, it wears much longer than most cars of similar price. You will be surprised to look '
over the Chalmers' records of mileage made by private owners. - , " '
This continued use of the same car, if it be one of economical up-keep. will tremendously reduce the loss caused by depreciation-
the heaviest expense borne by the motorist who finds It necessary to change automobiles often. ' ' , .
We can prove on the testimony of very reliable men who have driven their Chalmers cars tena"of. thousands of - miles that
Chalmers cars do wear indefinitely longer than one would suppose, from their price and that the service they give is so satisfactory
that there Is no temptation for a Chalmers owner to mske an expensive change. , . -,
Chalmers cars protect the bank ac-ount of their owners. .. '' .'. '
Each year there has been a shortage of Chalmers cars for Spring delivery. The. factory has bees -run constantly all night, as
well as day, since last July in order to protect the trade on Spring deliveries. Notwithstanding this fact there are no accumulated
Chalmers stocks either at the factory or any agencies. .
"We recommend, therefore, that you give the Chalmers early consideration. Only by placing your order now
can vou be assured of having your ear for the Spring motoring days. ,
