had no communication whatever with the

way by either of the Omaha papers. Man
ager Swan of the local Associated Press
office sent an account of tho -storm to
Lincoln by train, leaving Omaha at 1:15
In tho morning. In hopes that a wire
might be secured there, so the world
could bo given notice of tho awful calamity.
The Child Having Institute was a verit
able dead lioiifc after the storm bad spent
Its fury. Kvory available room was
pressed Into service and one after an
other the dead nnd Injured were brought
Into the house. The basement was
pressed Into service and hastily Impro
lscd places for rest were placed fit the
disposal of tho unfortunates.
Dr J. II. Vance arrived on the ccne
early and administered to the dying and
Injured. Two were dead when brought
to the houre nnd four died nftcrwards.
A moRt pitiable sight was that of a
young girl keeping watch over the dead
body of her mother. The mother, Mrs
Newman, bad been killed instantly and
the body was carried to the Institute,
where it was temporal lly placed on tho
porch, awnltlng suitable arrangements.
Without a murmur, the daughter stoically
told of the tragic death of her mother.
Tho mother was confined to a room on
the second floor of tho homo at 4221

At the Condon grading camp, where a

Forty-second street, tho storm worked
havoc. Two were Instantly killed, Bam

A remarkable coincidence among the

GETTING GRAY? NOBODY CAN TELL WHEN
YOUR HAIR IS DARKENED WITH SAGE TEA.
Says Sage and Sulphur Dark
ens Hair Beautifully and
Hair that loses Its color and lustre,
or when it fades, turns gray, dull And
lifeless Is caustd by a lack of sulphur In
the hair, says a well known local phar
macist. Our grandmother made up a
mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur to
Keep her locks dork and beautiful and
even today this simple preparation has
no equal. Millions of women and men
too. who value that even color, tnat
beautiful dark shade of hair which Is Bo
attractive usj only Sage Tea and Sulphur.
Nowadays vo are not bothered with
the task of gUtherlng the sage leaves vid
the niussy mixing at home. Him ply ask
at any drug tore for a (0 cent bottle of
the ready to use preparation sailed
"Wyeth'a Bage and Sulphur Hair Item
edy." Customers like this best because
it darkens so natura'lv: so evenly, that
nobody can possibly tell It has been ap
plied. Besides. It contains Ingredlentx
which take off dandruff, stop scalp Hon
ing and falling hair. No, It isn't a dye
or even like It. You just dampen a
sponge or soft brush with "Wyeth'a Sage
and Sulphur" and draw It through your
hair, taking one small strand at a time.
By morning the gray hair disappears:
after another application or two It Is re
fctored to Its natural color.
"What delights the ladles with Wycth's
Sage and Sulphur la that besides beauti
fully darkening the hair they say It
brings bark the gloss and lustre and
gives tt an appearance of abundance.
