TURNING GRAY AND THREATENED WITH BALDNESS The Danger is Averted by Using AVER': HAIR VIGOR "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, Avoca, Neb. Ayer's Hair Vigor PREPARED BY m. J. C. AYER & CO.. LOWELL, MASS., U. S. A.

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 xnrinas of clocks. One day a eloek- 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 tects had reared their brood, the nest was taken to the. museum, win it is preserved as a striking illustration of the skill of birds in turning their sur loundings to advantage in building their nests. .

The story runs that, during a war be tween the backwoods settlers of North -America, and the natives, a Quaker feasted the enemy and placed a white feather over the- door of his house as - a sign of amity.

John Moriarty, known all over east ern Maine as "Barney Kelley's Giant," died in Oldtown hospital recently of typhoid fever, says the Lewiston Even ing Journal. lie has beeu for nearly 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 Hercules. 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 sized men. At another time some toughs came into a barroom where he was and pro ceeded to "clear the place out." Mori artv took them, two at a time, and nitched them half wav across the street as though they were so many ninepins HARD TUSSLE WITH BRUIN. Orecon Hunter Attacks a Rear wltli an Ordinary Jackknife. J. C. Hearing, who was hunting and trapping in the Blue mountains, u few n.iles w est of Elgin, metwiui a nttie r.:. have proved rather serious to him had it not been for the intervention of one of his dogs, says the Portland Orcgonian. He was engaged in setting traps, and a: he had considerable weight to carry he had no weapon with him except, a jack- knife, and on his rounds ins degs dis covered the winter quarters of a bear 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.
