the tilings which may best be tlouo tc
beauty is the daily
use of Ayer's Hah
Vigor. No inattci
what the color of
the hair, this prepa
ration gives it a lus
tre and pliancy that
adds greatly to its
charm. Should the
hair be thin, harsh,
dry, or turning gray,
Ayer's Hair Visor
will restore the
color, bring out a
new growth, and
render the old soft and shiny. For
keeping the scalp clean, cool, and
healthy, there is no better preparation
in the market.
" I am free to confess that a trial of
Aver's Hair Vigor has convinced me
that it is a genuine article. Its use has
not only caused the hair of my wife and
daughter to bo
Abundant and Glossy,
but it lias gh-en my rather stunted mus
tache a respectable length and appear
ance." It. Britton, Oakland, Ohio.
"My hair was coming out (without
any assistance from my wife, cither),
t tried Ayer's Hair Vigor, using only
mic bottle, and I now have as line a
head of hair as any one could wisb for."
It. T. Schmittou, Dickson, Tcnn.
" I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor in ray
family for a number of years, and re
gard "it as the best hair preparation I
know of. It keeps the scalp clean, tho
hair soft and lively, and preserves tho
original color. My wife has used it for
a, long time with most satisfactory re
sults." Benjamin M. Johnson, M. D.,
Thomas Hill, Mo.
" My hair was becoming harsh and dry,
but after using half a bottle of Ayer's
Hair Vigor it grew black and glossy. I
cannot express the jovand gratitude I
reel." -Mabel V. 1 lardy, Uclavan, ill.

Sax Fhaxcisco, Jan. 27. The con
dition of the snow blockade on the Or
egon & California railroad .virtually re
mains the same. It is raining and
snowing at different points on the
Siskiyous to-night, and no one knows
when the track will be cleared. K-iil-road
authorities have at last heard
from assistant general superintendent
Pratt. He is two miles south of Duns-
muir, and with 300 men had on hand
clear tlie road from that place to Sims,
so as to have Jin open track up to
where Pratt now is.
The story of the existing condition
of the railroad blockade contains facts
that arc both favorable and the re
verse. The damage that the rain
caused around this city and in the val
ley to the south, east and north on
last Saturday is rapidly being re
paired, enabling local p:isseuger aud
freight trains, to some extent, to re
sume their regular trips. This dam
age in the aggregate has beep very
large, and while much of it is now
wiped out, considerable more remains
to bo attended to. On account of it
some four or five hundred extra
men were hired by the Sonlheru
Pacific, San Francisco k North
Pacific and North Pacific Coast com
panies yesterday and to-day; about
half these men will still be at work to
morrow at various points. The loss
that the San Francisco North Pacific
road has sustained bv storms up to
date is not less than $40,000, 'vhich
will bo swelled several thousands
higher before it gels rid of the present
difficulties. The North Pacific Ooast
road will escape with a loss of some
thing less than 5,000.
As to the financial loss that the
Southern Pacific company has sus
tained, only an approximate idea can
be given. For actual repairs that
have been made since the winter
storms have set in it has paid out
some $250,000. The loss that h:is
been sustained from diminshed freight
aud passenger revenues was something
like halt a million np to last Thursday.
Since that time the daily loss to the
companies from all sources has been,
according to general superintendent
Fillmore, $5,000. This daily loss con
tinues, with every prospect that it will
be the same all this weelc
The suow blockade on the Central
Pacific did not take a favorable turn
to-day. "While the snow has almost
all been cleared from the track in the
Sierra mountains, a new obstacle of a
formidable character has arisen. In
many places the snow has melted to a
considerable extent, finally freezing
the water from this source so that the
rails are one mass of ice. This is now
the condition of the track for a dis
tance twenty-five miles west of lieuo,
Nov. The same trouble is anticipated
for that portion of tho track west of
tunnel IS, further up on the moun
tain. This ice makes it imjsossible to
run any train or plow over the track.
The rotarv plow canuot possibly be
run. The only way that the ice can
be got rid of Ls to use the pick juul
shovel, which will require much time.
For this reason none of the twelve de
layed trains is expected to get out be
fore next Thursday night.
As it was snowing hard on the
Shasta mountains to-night, there is
great cause for appreheudiug that
there would be another snowt-torm in
the Sierra Nevadas.
All eastern mail sent from here up to
the 20th inst., except that of the 15th
inst., has reached its destination. The
latter mail is now on its way east over
the Atlantic & Pacific There arrived
at Barstow this morning, over the
Atlantic & Pacific, 109 sacks of papers
and 27 pouches of mail on its way to
thit city. It will probably not reach
hero before "Wednesday, owing to the
fact that no train left Los Angeles hist
night. This is mail which has been
diverted from the Ogden route. No
train left for Ogden to-night, and the
one that started last night was aban
doned at Sacramento.
The suow on the sheds between
summit and tunnel 13, on the Cen
tral Pacific railroad, is tinprccedented
in depthj ranging from 50 to 200 feel,
and in isolated cases attaining the
enormous depth of 500 feet. A large
force of men are engaged in bracing
up week parts of the sheds, and shov
elers are removing snow from tho
roofs. West of Summit the sheds are
covered from eigliteen to twenty-five
feet deep. In eastern Nevada and
Utah along the lino of tho Central
Pacific road, the present snowfall has
never before been equaled, and, a
blockade exists between "Wells and
Terrace, caused by snow falling on
the ice-covered track.
Last night a plow with six engines,
going east from Wells, was derailed
with two of the engines, and one of
the firemen was killed and an engineer
f badly scalded. An engine with a
plow which left Terrace going west,
was derailed four miles from Terrace.
The engine was turned on its side, but
no one was injured.
As a remedy for coughs and colds,
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral has never
been equaled. Its name is a house

Mr. Grady's Home Life.
At homo Mr. Grady was full of fnn
and frolic One of the funniest scenes
I ever witnessed was during a dinner
at THr. Grady's house. When we
seated ourselves at the table Mrs.
Grady gave a warning look at her
husband, who had commenced to
carve the chicken, as she said : "Henry,
I tim going to say grace." With a re
signed air Mr. Grady sat, his head a
little inclined to the right, his lips
pursed up. Mrs. Grady, who was a
devout Methodist, began to say grace,
while Mr. Grady kept up an under
current of soft-toned, sotto voce par
entheses: "Now, dear, the chickens
are getting cold.' ''Now, dear, don't
make it longer because you've got
company." "Now, dear, these people
can't be thankful; they look ready to

Eincerely religions man. He simply
could not suppress his bubbling spirits.

The old Teutonic and Saxon term,
'God's Acre," as applied to tho last
rojrting place of the human body.
Longfellow made the theme of one of
his most touching and beautiful
poems; it is an eminently suggestive
term, says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The acre or field of God con
tains the seed hidden in the ground
for awhile, to ripen into a glorious
harvest; and, just as we write the
labels in the spring time for seed we
put in the ground, that wo may re
member what beautiful flower is to
spring from the littlo gray atom, so
w'e put a stono at the head of the
grave of our dead. The name 'ceme
tery' also signitics merely the place
where one may lie, slumbering for
awhile, till the dawn shall come and
the trumpet sound.
