your complexion is as clear, soft and

DOES TOUR HAIR ,
SHOW YOUR m?;
Of course white hair and gray al- :
ways suggest age, but often faded,
dull and brittle locks make us think
even young people are old, while a
lustrous, heavy head of hair is natur
ally associated with youthfulness and
forces us to credit its owner with
being young. Perfectly healthy hair
is always beautifying and is very easily
acquired if proper care is given to the
hair and scalp. In washing the hair it
is not advisable to use a makeshift, but
always use a preparation made for
shampooing only. You can enjoy the
best that is known for about three cents
a shampoo by getting a package of j
canthrox from your druggist; dissolve
a teaspoonful in a cup of hot water and
vour shampoo is ready. After its use j
the hair dries rapidly with uniform
color. Dandruff, excess oil and dirt are I
dissolved and entirely disappear. Your !
hair will be so fluffy that it will look I
much heavier than it is. Its lustre and
softness will also delight you, while the '
stimulated scalp gains the health which |
insures hair growth. Adv. |
TO RELIEVE ASTHMA
"I have arranged with George A.

try my treatment entirely at my risk,"
Dr. Rudolph Schiffmann announces. He
says: "Buy a 50-cent package of my
Asthmador or Asthmador Cigarettes,
try it, and if it does not afford you
immediate relief, or if you do not find
it the best remedy you have ever used,
take it bacK to George A. Gorgas and
he will return your mouey, cheerfully
and without any questiou whatever.
After seeing the grateful relief it has
afforded in hundreds of cases, which
had been considered incurable, and
which had been given up in despair, I
know what it will do. t am so sure
that it will do the same with others that
I am not afraid to guarantee it will re
lieve instantaneously. The druggists
handling Asthmador will return yOur
money if you say so. You are to be
the sole judge acd under this positive
guarantee, absolutely no risk is run in

The general cleanup of a neighbor

the flumber of flies, he said resulted iu
one third us much communicable dis

fly-prevalent district. Hut to determine
how greet a fa-tor was the fly alotie
in communicating disease, an extensive
campaign was carried out in 1,200

three supervisors visited each home
every five days. Every effort was made
to protect the infants from flics. Over
a thousand yards of netting were dis
tributed free of cost and fly killing
was also undertaken systematically.
The results were definitely indicative'
of less sickness, but general cleanli
ness seemed to be more important than
simply protecting the infant from flics.
Oxer three times as much diarrhea
occurred in the poorly protected, dirty
homes, as in the well-protected, clean
ones, he found.

Of uncommon inters is the illus
trated l*vt«re on deep s«% diving by
<"apt«in Louis Soreho at the Orpheuin
theatre this week. The ottptain does
none of the diving in his act but adds
greatly to the interest by lecturing
while another diver dous the uniform
and dotw the illustrating in n tank ou
the stag*. The setting in the tank rep
resents the stateroom door on the deck
of a sunken ocean liner.
TMie act is interesting, first because
the ordinary landlubber has only the
smallest conception of tfhe nature of a
diver's outfit, and secoml because it is
a very rare chance one has tw see a
diver working under water, with the as
sistants overhaul operating the air
puuiip and the telephone. The submarine
telephone is a recent innovation. The
life-line no longer is used to semi mes
sages to tihe surface but the diver is in
icoMtant communication with the sur
face by telephone.
