Aycr's Hair Vigor kcep3 the hair soil
ar.il pliant, imparts to it the lustre and
freshness of youth, causes it to grow
luxuriantly, eradicates Dandruff, cures
all scalp diseases, and is the most clean
ly of all hair preparations.
fiVFTD'Q Hair Vigor has given mo
fi i-li O perfect satisfaction. I was
pearly bald for six years, during which
time I used many hair preparations, but
without success. Indeed, what little
hair I had was growing thinner, until
1 tried Ayer's Hair Vigor. I used two
lottIes of the Vigor, and my head is now
well covered with a new growth of hair.

itrXill ani faded, may have new life
and color restored to it by the use of
Ayer's Hair Vigor. Jly hair was thin,
faded, and "dry, and fell out in largo
Quantities. Ayer's Hair Vigor stopped
the falling, and restored my hair to its
original color. As a dressing for the
hair, this preparation has no equal.
Mary K. Hammond, Stillwater, Minn.
Or? youth, and beauty, in tlio
"s appearance of the hair, may
lc preserved for an indefinite period by
the USB of Ayer's Hair Vigor. A dis
ease cf the scalp caused my hair to be
come harsh and dry, and to fall out
freely. Nothing I tried seemed to do
mo any good until I commenced using
Ayer's Hair Vigor. Threo bottles of
this preparation restored my hair to a
healthy condition, and it is now soft
and pliant. My scalp is cured, and it
is also free from dandruff. Mrs. E. It.

When I stood up before tho con

old classmate of mine who has be
come famous as a divine. He
began preaching in a little Congre
gational church, and over the way
was a little Spiriualistic commu
nity which would go off and have
Spiriualistic revelations. Then
the pastor would abase everybody
else. The pastor, a man named
Robinson, died one day. He was
a man who had been bred a puritan
and some of his friends thought he
ought to be buried in a puritan
way. They went to my classmate
and asked him to conduct the
funeral service, ne made a few
remarks upon the virtues of the
deceased what few he had and
sang a little hymn after a fashion

his widow got up and said that tho
spirit of her husband was there,
and then she began lo abuse the
preacher, and the prayer, and the
hymn; and the friends of the dead
man who had invited my friend to
preach the funeral sermon went to
hini and said he must not think
anything about it; tiut, though it
was contrary to the orditiHiy pro
prieties, yet it was not the widow
who was doing it, but it was her
husband's spirit. My friend re
plied that he was not at all hurl;

body, but still it was a peculiir
experience. -lie said that in fif
teen years of funerals it was the
first time he had ever been sassed
