SAGE TEA TINS
GRAY HAIR DARK
;lt's Grandmother's Recipe to Bring
Color, Lustre and Thickness to Hair
i When Faded, Streaked or Gray
That beautiful, even shade of dark,
.glossy hair can only be had by brewing
a mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur.
Your hair is your charm. It makes or
mars the face. When it fades, turns
gray, streaked and looks dry, wispy and
scraggy, just an application or two of
Bngc Hnd Sulphur enhances its appear
ance a hundredfold.
Don't bother to prepare the tonic;
you can get from any drug store a 50-
cent bottle of "Wveth's Sage and Sul
phur Compound," ready to use. This
can always be depended upon to bring
back the natural color, thickness and
lustre of your hair and remove dandruff,
stop scalp itching and falling hair.
Everybody uses "Wyeth's" Sage and
Sulphur because it darkens so naturally
and evenly that nobody can tell it has
been applied. You simply dampen a
sponge or soft brush with it aud draw
this through the hair, taking one small
strand at a time; bv morning the gray
hair has disappeared, and after another
application it becomes beautifully dark
and appears glossy, lustrous and abuu

R. S. NAON ADDRESSED THE
IHEH OF THE AIWERICAW BAR
Ambassador to the United States Spoke
on "The Argentine Constitutional
Idea"—He Compared Their System
With That of Ours
Washington, Oct. 22. —Ai/lassador
Naon, of the Argentine Republic, who
recently acted as one of the mediators
in the" Mexican troubles, to-day ad
dressed the American Bar Association j
now in session here, on "The Argon-j
tine Constitutional Idea." The Am
bassador outlined broadly the essential
features of the Argentine constitution,
its democratic spirit, and its effect in
the social development of the people.
Comparing the system with that of the
United States, he said:
''The organization given by the j
American Constitution to the various!
departments of the government, served
as a model to the framers of our Con
stitution of '53, with some differences;
relating to the organization and oper
ation of the Executive Power. Thus
our legislative power reveals in the
Constitution of its two chambers the
federal principle of our institutions,
the idea of a national unity being re
flected in a Chamber of Deputies, the
genuine representation of the people of
the Nation, elected therefore in propor
tion to the population of the country,
and in an Kpper Chamber of Senate
composed of two representatives for
each State and two for the federal
capital, who represent the local au
tonomy of each State.
"The right of the federal capital to
send its Deputies and Senators like any
other province, a right not enjoyed by
the American capital, is the only detaril
of the organization of the legislative
Power which differentiates the Argen
tine Congress from its great model, the
American Congress, if we do not con
sider tile form of election of the Sena
tors and Deputies, the former being;
elected by tho legislatures in each
Province, and the latter by the appli
cation of the principle which guaran
tees to the minority a permanent rep
resentation in the Chamber of Depu
Referring to the pacific progress of
the people of his eountry, the Ambas
'' Resort to arms has never attracted
their predilections, and if they have
more than once been compelled to ac
cept it as an inexorable and inevitable
necessity, they have not done so cither
to seek a benefit or to procure an ad
vantage, because they have never con
ceived any benefit which could spring
from the misfortune or from the pros
tratiou which war entails. It is only
the unavoidable exigencies of the na
tional dignity or the integrity of our
institutions which could compel it to
accept tho calamities and consequences
of a war."
Mr. Jv'aon pointed out that his coun
try "was the first to strive for the suc
cess of a formula establishing compul
sory arbitration without limitations,
proclaiming and defending it in all the
deliberations of international congresses
and conferences in which she has par
ticipated, and finally including it in the
numerous treaties of arbitration which
she has entered into between 1899 and
the present date. In all of them the
following clauses have been inserted:
'The contracting parties agree to sub
mit to arbitration all questions of any
! nature that may arise between them,
i provided they do not affect the provis
[ ions of the Constitution of either
' State, and cannot be settled by direct
| negotiations,' ''
Pointing to a' broad international
| humanitarianism as a constitutional
! idea in Argentina, the Ambassador as-
I serted that "the Constitution and the
; laws have declared the principle that
I foreigners enjoy in the territory of the
; nation all the civil rights of a citizen"
land that "in the same manner that the
j principle of democracy is the fouuda
j tion of our political organization, the
j sentiment of international democracy is
; the foundation of our international pol
! This humanitarianism had shown it
| self, he said, at the end of the war,
! with Paraguay, when Argentina which
i was "in a position to impose its will
I upon the defeated country and fix tho
i bounciarv line between the two coun
| tries, refuspd to take advantage of her
I incontrovertible superiority, and even
| of the much vaunted 'rights of the vic
tor, and in a spirit of lofty generosity
acclaimed to the world the phrase that
lias ever since epitomized her policy:
'Victory gives 110 rights.' A few days
later a treaty of arbitration was signed
submitting the determination of the
| boundary line to the decision of an im
partial judge, the President of the
" 'Victory gives no rights,' is the
highest expression of our aspiration."
