The Danger is Averted by Using
"Nearly forty years ago, after
some weeks of sickness, my hair,
turned gray and began falling out
so rapidly that I was threatened
-with immediate baldness. Hearing
Ayer's Hair Vigor highly spoken of,
I commenced using this prepara-
tion, and was so well satisfied with
the result that I have never tried
any other kind of dressing. It stop
ped the hair from falling out, stimu
lated a new growth of hair, and kept
- the scalp free from dandruff. Only
an occasional application is now
needed to keep my hair of good,
natural color. I never hesitate to
recommend any of Ayer's medicines
to my friends." Mrs. II. M. Haight,

nest made entirely ofstwl. There arc
a number of clock-inakiufr shops a-i
Soleure, and in the yards of these there
are -qf ten found lying- disused or broken

malier noticed in. a tree in his yard a
bird's nest of pecul ir appearance, tx
amining it, he found that a pair of waff
tails bad built a nest entirely of clock
springs. It was more than four inches
across, and perfectly comfortable for
the birds! After the feathered archi

was taken to the. museum, win it is

two years employed as construction
kand'on the Bangor & Aroostook rail
road, and later on the new Ashland
branch, where be became sick.
Moriarty stood 6 feet 9 inches in
his stocking feet and generally
weighed 240 pounds. Had he. been fat
his weight would have been enormous.
But he was very lean. "W hy," said
llarnev Kelley. "you could feed - the
giant on porterhouse steak and eggs
and he wouldn't gain a pound; but he
was an awful tough man!"
His arms were very long and he had
hands as powerful as the paws of a
porilla. All over his body the muscles
stood out in lumps and cords, and his
strength was immense. He could do as
much work as two ordinary men, and
on that account his services were ill
ways in demand at more than common
wages. He 'was especially serviceable
as a derrick man he could turn the
heavy crank all day without tiring.
An ax was like a toy .in his bands, a
cant-dog like a walking-st ick. He could
up end and shoulder a'sma 11 log or piece
of timber that two ordinarj' men could
barely lift, and in every department
of hearty manual labor he was a very
Many stories are told of the giant's
mighty strength. Once, when two
saucy woodsmen "guyed" him about
his towering height, he seized them by
the shoulders, one in each hand, and
knocked their heads together till their
teeth rattled and they were two good

n a big hollow tree. The bear was at
home, and was pretty much alive, as sub
sequent events proved. As bear pelts are'
quite valuable, Jake was quite anxious
to secure this one, but was afraid that if
he went to camp, a mile and a. half dis
tant, bruin would escape, so he lashed
bis pocketknif e to the end of a stick and
attempted tocutthe animal's throat. Ho
only succeeded in inflicting some pain
ful flesh wounds, which so enraged the
brute that it suddenly pan:?, out of its
hole, and was almost on him when one
oi his dogs made a suild.cn onslaught on
the animal's rear, which diverted his
attention long enough to enable Jake
to dodge behind a tree, and the dogs
soon made it so tropical for the bear
that it was glad to take ref uge in a tree,
where they kept it until a gun was
procured from camp, when the animal
was quickly dispatched.
