A WONDERFUL DISCOVERY 1
A Deodorized extraot of Petroleum,
Tlio Only Articlo that Will Eo
storo Hair on Bald Heads.
Whnt the World has lieen
Wantinsr br Centuries.
Die greatest discovery of our day, so far as a
lurgo portion of humanity li concerned, Is CAP.
B0L1NE, an article prepared from petroleum, and
which effects n coraplcto and radical curoln caso of
baldness, or w hero tho hair, on lug to diseases ot
the scalp, has liecomo thin and tends to fall out.
It Is atbo a speedy restorative, and whllo Us use se
cure a luxuriant grouth of hair, It also brings back
the natural color, and gives tho most complcto eat
iefactlon in the using. Tho falling out of tho hair,
the accumulations of dandruff, and tho preaiatum
change In color are nil evidences of a diseased con
dition of tho scalp and tho glands which nourish thu
hair. To arrest theso causes tho articlo used must
possess medical as well as chemical virtues, and tho
change must begin under tho ecalp to bo of perma
nent and lasting benefit. Such an article Is CAR
BOLINE, and, llko many other wonderful discov
eries, Ills found to consist of elements almost la
their natural state, rctrolcum oil Is the articlo
which Is made to work such extraordinary results ;
but It Is after It has been chemically trcatod and
completely deodorized that It Is in proper condition
for the toilet. It was In far-off Russia that tha
effect of petroleum upon the halrwas first observed,
a Government odlcer having noticed that a partially
bald-headed servant of Lis, when trimming tho
lamps, had a habit of wiping hta oil-besmeared
hands in his scanty locks, and the result was in a
few months a much finer head of black, glossy hatr
than he ever had before. Tho oil was tried oa
horses and cattle that had lost their hair from tho
cattle plague, and the results vtcro as rapid as they
were marvelous. Tho manes and even tho talis of
horses, which had fallen out, were completely re
stored In a few weeks. Theso experiments wcro
heralded to tho world, but the knowledge was prac
tically useless to tho prematurely bald and gray, aa
no one In civilized society could tolcrato tho use of
reflued petroleum as a dressing for the hair. But th
skill of one of our chemists has overcome tho diffi
culty, and by a process known only to hlnuelf, h
has, after very elaborate and costly experiments, suc
ceeded la deodorizing refined petroleum, which,
renders It susceptible of being handled as daintily
as the famous taxi lit eologm. The experiments with,
the deodorized liquid on tho human hair were at
tended with tho moat astonishing results. A few
applications, where tho hair was thin and falling,
gave remarkable tone and vigor to tha scalp and
hair. Every particle of dandruff disappears on
the first or second dressing, and tho liquid so search
ing in Its nature, seems to penetrate to tho roots at
once, and set up a radical change from tho start. It
is well known that tho most beautiful colors aro
made from petroleum, and, by some mysterious
operation of nature, the usoof this articlo gradu
ally imparts a beautiful light-brown color to tho
hair which by continued use, deepens to a black.
The color remains permanent for an tndcfiulto length,
of tlsie, and the change Is so gradual that tho most
Intimate friends can scarcely detect its progress.
In a word, It Is tho moit wonderful discovery ot
the age, and well calculated to inako tho prema
turely bald and gray rejoice.
Vo advlso our readers to glvo It a trial, feclinij
sstlificd that cue application w ill cum Incu tlirm of
Its wonderful effects. IHtUburyti Cummticial of
The article Is telling Its own itory In tho hands or
thousands who aru using It with tho most gratifying:
and encouraging results s
W. n. Brili. & Co., Fifth Avenue rharmacy, says.
"We hav e sold preparatiuus for tho hair for upward
of tuentyyears, buthavo never had ouu to sell as
well or give such universal satisfaction. Wo there
fore recommend It wiiU confidence to ourfrleud
and tho general public."
Mr. OfSTAVCS P. Hall, of tho Oates Opera.
Troupe, writes! "After slxwccks' uselam con
vinced, as aro also my comrades, that your 'Carbo
line' has and Is producing a wonderful growth of
hair w here 1 had uono for years."
C.II. Smith, of the Jennie Hlsht Combination,
w rites: " After using your 'Carbollne' three weeks;
1 am convinced that bald heads can be 're-haired.
It's simply wonderful In my caso."
B. F. AnTHun, chtmUt, Holyokc, Mass., writes;
Your ' Carbolino' has restorer my hair after ei ery
thlog else had failed."
Josxrn E. Pond, attorney-at-law, No. Attleboro,
Mass., writes t For more than SO years a portion or
my head has been as smooth and free from hair as a
billiard ball, but somo elf lit weeks o,-o I was In
duced to try your Carbollne, and tlio eifrct has
been simply wonderful. Whero no hair has been
seen for years tbcro new appears a thick xrov,tli.
and I am convinced that bycontliiuliigltsuse I fliall
have as good a head of hair as lever had, It is
growing now nearly as rapidly as hair does a(Ur

All the Year Round,
FAITHFUL ONTO DEATH.
Tho fire burns cheerily on tho hearth,
tho great logs crackle and Hare up the
wide chimney, up which it is my wont
to say you could drive a coach-aiid-fotir.
I draw my chair nearer to it, with u
shiver. 'What a night!' I say.
'Is it still snowingT' asks my wife,who
sits opposite to me, her books nnd work
on thu table beside her.
'Fast. You can scarcely seo n yard
'Heaven help any poor creature on tlio
moor to-iiightl' says she.
'Who would venture out' It began
snowing before dark, and all the people
about know thn ilangerof being benight
ed on the moor in a snow storm.
Yes. But I have known people fro
zen to death hereabouts before now.
My wife is Scotch, and this pleasant
house in tho Highlands is hers. We aro
trying a winter in it for tho first time,
and I find it excessively cold a,ml some
what dull. Mentally f decide in future
wo will only grace it with our presenco
during the shooting season. Presently
I go to the window and look out; it lias
ceased snowing and through a rift in tho
clotuU I sec a star.
'It is beginning to clear,' I tell my
wife, and also inform her that it is past
eleven. As bIiu lights her candlo at tlio
side table I hear a whining and scratch
ing at tho front door.
'There is Laddie loose again,' says
she. 'Would you let him in, dear?'
I did not like facing tho cold wind,
but could not refuse to let the poor ani
mal in. Strangely enough, when I open
ed the door and called him ho wouldn't
come. Ho runs up to the door and looks
into my face with dumb entreaty; then
ho runs back a few steps, looking around
to see if I am following; and, finally, ho
takes my coat in his mouth and tries to
draw mo out
'Laddie won't come in,' I call out to
my wife. 'On the contrary, he seems
to want mo to go out and have a game
of snow ball with him.'
She throws a shawl around her and
comes to the door. The collie was hers
before we were married, and sho is al
most ns fond of him, I tell her, as she
is of Jack, our oldest boy.
'Laddie, Laddie!' she calls; 'come in,
sir.' He conies obediently at her call,
but refuses to enter the house, and pur
sues the same dumb pantomime ho has
already tried on mo.
'I shall shut him out Jessie,' I say
'A night in tho snow won't hurt him;'
and I prepare to close the door.
You will do nothing of tho kind! she
replies, wiiu nu anxious look', 'Hut you
will rouso tho servants at once, and fol
low him. Some ono is lost in the suow,
anil .Laddie knows it.
I laugh. 'Heallv Jessie, von aro nb
surd. Laddie is a sagaeiwus animal, no
doubt, but I cannot believe he is ns clov
er as that. How can ho nossiblv know
whether any one is lost in the snow, or
Hecauso ho has found them and eomo
back to us for help. Look at him now.'
I cannot birj own that the dog seems
restless and uneasy, and is evidently en
deavoring to coax us to follow him; ho
looks at us with pathetic entreaty in his
eloquent eyes. 'Why won't you believe
met' ho seems to ask.
'Come,' she continues: von know vou
could not rest while- theio was a possi-
oyuy oi a lenow creature wanting your
assistance. And I am certain Laddie is
not deceiving us.'
'What is a poor hen-pecked man to
do? I grumble, and resist, and yield;
as I havo often grumbled, and resisted,
nnd yielded before, and as 1 doubtless
often shall again.
'l.addio onco found a man in the
snow before, but ho was dead,' Jessie
says, as she hurled off to fill u llaslc witli
brandy, and get ready some blankets for
us to tako with us. In tlio meantime
I rouso tho servants.
1 hey are all English, with the excep
tion of Donald, tho garduer, and 1 can
see that they aro seollingly skeptical of
i.uuuiu a huguciiy, aim inwardly disgust
ed at having to turn out of their warm
beds and face tho bitter winter's night.
'Jillina troublo verself.' I bear old
Donald say. 'Tlio mistress is riuht
enough. Auld Laddio is cleverer than
inony n Christian, and will find some
thing in tlio snaw to-night.
'Don't sit up, Jessie," I say. as wo
stnrti wo may bo out half tlio night on
this wild gooso chase.'
'Follow Laddio closely," is tho only
iliinnii oiiu lllilKOS.
The dog spriiitrs forward with n inv
ous bark, constantly looking back lo seo

a swinging trot, and is taking his way

The cold wind nlmost cuts its in two,
and whirls tho snow into our faces, near
ly blinding us. My finger-tips are be
coming numbed, icicles hang from my
moitstacho and beard, and my feet and
legs aro soaking wet, oven through my
shooting-boots nnd stout leather legg
lugs. The moon has gono in again, and tho
light from the lantern we carry is barely
sulllcient to show us the inequalities in
the height of tho snow, by which wo aro
guessing at our path, I begin to wish I
find staid at home. 'Jj'homme propose,
mm8 lafemme dispose,' I sigh to my
self, anil I begin to consider whetuer I
may venture to give up tho search,
(which I have undertaken purely to sat
isfy my wife, for 1 am like John, and wb
won't believe in Laddie,) when, sudden
ly, I hear a shout in front of me, and
seo Donald, who has all the time been
keeping close to Laddie, drop on his
knees and begin digging wildly in the
snow with his hands. Wo all rush for
ward. Laddio has stopped at what ap
pears to bo the foot of a stunted tree,
and after scratching nnd whining for a
moment, sits down and watches, leaving
the rest to us. What is it that appears
when wo havo shoveled away the snow?
A dark object. Is it a buiiulo of rags?
Is it or, alas! was it a human being?
We raise it carefully and tenderly, and
wrap it in one of the warm blankets with
which wife's forethought has provi
'Bring mo tho lantern,' I say huskily,
and John holds it over tho prostrate
form of, not as we might have expected,
some stalwart sheplieid of the hills, but
over that of a poor, shrivelled, wrinkled,
ragged old woman. I try to pour a little
brandy down the poor old throat, but
the teeth are so firmly clenched that I
'Get lier homo as quickly as may be,
sir; the mistress will know better what
to do for no wo do, if so be the poor

ively, as we all do in Bickncss or trouble,
to woman's aid.
So we improvise a sort of hammock
of tho blankets, and gently and tenderly
the men prepare to carry their poor,holp
less burden over tho snow.
'I am afraid your mistress will be in

triumphant glance at John; 'tho mistress

'I'll never say naught about believing
a tlawg agin',' says John, gracefully
striking his colors. 'You were right, and
I was wrong; but to think there should
bo such sense in an animal passes me!'
As we reach the avenue gate I des
patch one of the men for the doctor,who
tortunately lives within a stone's throw
of us, and hurry on myself to prepare
my wife for what is coming. She runs
out into the hall to meet me. 'Weill.'
she asks eagerly.
'Wo have found a poor old woman, I
say, 'but 1 do not know whether sho is
alive or dead.'
My wife throws her .arms around mo
and gives mo a great hug.
'Vou will una ury uuugs nun jiiy ui
hot toddy in your dressing room
dear,' she says; and this is all the
revenge she takes on me for my skepti
cism. Tho poor old woman is carried
up stairs and placed in a warm bath tin
der my wife's direction; and boforo tho
doctor arrives she has shown some faint
symptoms of life; so my wife sends mo
word. Dr. Bruce shakes his head when
ho sees her. 'Poor old soul,' he says;
'how caino she out on such a fearful
night? I doubt she has recived a shock
which, at her age, she will not easily get
Thev manage, however, to force a
few spoonfuls of the hot brandy and
water down her throat: and presently a
faint color flickers on her cheek, and tho
poor old eyelids begin to tremble. My
wife raises her head, and makes her
swallow somo cordial which Dr. Uruco
has brought with him, and lays her
back among tho Boft, warm pillows.
I think sho will rally now, says ur.
Bruce, as her breathing becomes more
autliblo and regular. 'Nourishment and
warmth will do the rest; out sue lias re-
ceived a shock from which, I fear, she
will never recover. And so saying, he
takes his leave.
By-and by I go up to the room, and
find my wife watching alone by tho
aged sufferer. She looks up at me with
tears in her eyes, 'Poor old soul,' she
says 'I am afraid sho will not rally from
the cold and exposure.
I go round to tueotlier sulo ot tuo ucd

looks wan and pinched, and tho scanty

ingly. 'She does not. belong to any of
the villages iiearaDouts, or wo snouiii
know her face; and I cannot imagine
what could bring a stranger to tho moor
on such a night.'
As 1 speak a change passes over her
face; tho eyes unclose, and sho looks in
nuiringly about her. She tries to speak
but is evidently too weak. My wife rais

I say. 'I shall ring for Mnry, and sho

from ngo as woll ns weakness. 'And

1 hear nt onco by the accent that she
is English. 'Aro you strong enough to

'Ah 1 1 was going to my lad, my poor
lad, nnd now 1 doubt I never shall see
him more," says the poor soul with a
long sigh of weariness.
'Where is your lad, nnd how far havo
you como ?'
'My lad is a Boldicr at Fort George and
I havo coma nil the way from Liverpool
to seo him, and givo him his old mother's
blessing beforo ho goes to the Indies."
And then, brokenly with long pauses of
weariness, tho old woman tells us her
pitiful story :
Her lad sho tells us, is her only re
maining child. She had six, and this
tho youngest, is tho only ono who did
not die of want during the Lancnnshiro
cotton famine. He grew up a line like
ly boy, tho comfort nnd pride of his
mothers heart, and the stay of her de
clining years. But a "strike" threw him
out of work, nnd unable to endure tho
privation and misery, in a fit of despera
tion ho "listed." His regiment was
quartered at Fort George, and he wrote
regularly to his mother, liis letters get
ting more cheerful and hopeful every
day: until ho wrote to say that his regi
ment had been ordered" to India, and
begging her to send him her blessing, as
ho had not enough money to carry him
to Liverpool to see her. Thengcd mot
er widowed and childless, savo for this
one remaining boy, felt that sho must
look on his face onco more before she
died. She begged from a fow ladies,
whoso kindness had kept her from tho
workhouse, sufficient money to carry her
by train to Glasgow; and from thence
she had made her way,now on foot, now
begging a lift in a passing cart or wagon
to within a few miles of Fort George,
when she was caught in the snow storm;
and wandering from tho road would have
perished in tho snow but for Laddie.
My wife is in tears, and Mary is sob
bing audibly nstholittlc old woman con
cludes her touching nnd simple story,
and I walked to tho window and looked
out for a moment before I am nble to
ask her sots name. As I tell her we

and that I will send over for him,a smilo
of extreme content illuminates tho with
'His namo is John Salter,' sho says,
'ho is a tall.handsomo lad; they will know

I hasten down stairs and write a short
note to Col. Freeman, whom I know in

John Salter to como over at once ; and I

But my caution is needless; tho mother

He came with an nwful expression of
wrath upon his countenance, and said
that ho believed everything was going
wrong. Wo said we didn't see what the
blazes ho climbed four flights of stairs
to sny that for. He replied that ho had
struck tlio meanest man on record, nnd
that ho had como in to tell us nbout it.
"You seo," said he, I'm a plumber. We
at onco arose and implored him to leave
tho ofllce, swearing that we hadn't a
cent that ho could get hold of anyway.
But he protested that ho didn't como af
ter us and we let him continue. "Well,"
snid he, "last season I had six or seven
sink spots and two leaks in a supply pipo
to repair. I contrived to savo about
$3500 out of tho profits, and I thought
I'd havo my houso painted. Well, I
hired n man to do tho job, and he went
at it at $4 per day. Tho first day he
spent in bringing a lot of old ladders
and cluttering up my yard with them.
The next day he spent in putting them
up against tho building and taking off
tho blinds. Having got tho place look
ing like destruction a rain storm came
up nnd ho bad to suspend work for that.
Tho storm lasted threo days anil by the
time fair weather canw ho was drunk.
It took him a day to get sober and he
put in that day loafing around my placo
and charging mo for it. Well, next day
ho mixed his paint. It took him ten
minutes to stir the paint three times nud
light his pipe. I had tumbled over his
ladders and things going homo niter
dark till I was mortally sick of them.
But I stood it. I had my plans. Next
day he went to painting. I timed him
on climbing a ladder, and it took him
six minutes to mount fourteen rods anil

of mine have come along and leaned
over the feuco and taken the thing in
and grinned and acted pleased like and
it almost drove mo wild. But you've
employed a painter, sir. You know the
aggravation of tho thing. I needn't di
late. Well at last tho job was complet
ed. With no complaint I paid his bill,
though it about bankrupted me. But 1
swore revenge. Cold weather came. I
watched him. The water pipes in his
houso burst. I knew they would. I
chuckled in glee. 'Ha, ha!' I cried, 're
venge is sweet." And, great snakes!
would you believe it sir? That man went
and hired another plumber, who is green
nt the business and didn't keep the job
along all winter as I'd have done. I lost
my revenge. Now you know why I am

How Sbe Fooled Him.
A curious suit was filed in the Chan
cery Court in which a man makes his
own wife a defcm1nnt,chnrging her with
conspiracy and chicane. Nelson T. Seo
is tho plaintiff, and Chnrles W. Poole,
his wife, Fannlo Poole nud Mary A. See,
wife of the plaintiff, are defendants.
From his statements in tho petition, it
seems that a little over a year ago Mr.
Seo paid court to n shy maiden ot forty
summers, Miss Mnrtlin Stevens by name.
Tho balmy mellow nir of September gave
way to tlio crisp nnd pleasant breezes of
October, and the affections wnxed stron
ger witli the incoming of winter days.
About this tune the honeyed course ot
sentiment, by a practical turn of affairs,
nnd a proposition ot marriage, lrom
which side is immaterial to the story,
met with an immediate acceptance from
the opposite party, nnd the contract was
consummated. The winter sped by, nnd
on the SOtli of March tho climax of their
hopes wns reached and Miss Stevens be
came Mrs. Lee. A honeymoon of unalloy
ed bliss followed, und might have contin
ued on forever had not the doting
husband, who, like all of his fellow mor
tals, is not entirely without an eye to
business began to tako some thought
about tho worldly possessions of her
over whoso estate he hnd a right to ex
ercise full control. Imagine the mixture
of mortification, chagrin and embarrass
ment which overwhelmed lam when he
discovered n few days ago that tho trust
ing, but cautious JYlnrtha had seemingly
put it beyond his power to appropriate
her goods along with her heart.
About a week before her marriage sho
had conveyed all of her proper! y,consist
ingof books, furniture, pictures, a piano,
:i sewing machine and eleven bonds of
the value of $1,000 each, to her co-defen
dant in the suit, Cltas. W. Poole. A
few days after this, ami iust on the evo

all painted yellow and were called the

they frequently had good sleighing for a
couple of months and sleighing parties
