SAGE AND SULPHUR
DARKENS GRAY HAIR
It's Grandmother's Recipe
Restore Color, Gloss and
Almost everyone knows that Sage
Tea and Sulphur, properly compound
ed, brings back the natural color and
lustre to the hair when faded, streak
ed or gray. Years ago the only way
to get this mixture was to make it at
home, which is mussy and trouble
some. Nowadays, by asking at any
drug store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sul
phur Compound," you will get a large
bottle of this famous old recipe, im
proved by the addition of other in
gredients, Jor about 60 cents.
Don't stay grayl Try it! No one
can possibly tell that you darkened
your hair, as it does it bo naturally
and evenly. You dampen a sponge or
soft brush with it and draw this
through your hair, taking one small
strand at a time; by morning the gray
hair disappears, and after another ap
plication or two, your hair becomes
beautifully dark, glossy and attractive.

for those who desire dark hair and a
youthful appearance. It is not intend

Ouch 1 ? I ?! 1 This kind of rough
talk will be heard less here In town if
people troubled with corns will follow
the simple advice of this Cincinnati
authority, who claims that a few drops
of a drug called freezone when applied
to a tender, aching corn or hardened
callous stops soreness at once, and
soon the corn or callous dries up and
lifts right off without pain.
He says freezone dries immediately
and never Inflames or even irritates
the surrounding skin. A small bottle
of freezone will cost very little at any
drug store, but will positively remove
every hard or soft corn or callous
from one's feet. Millions of America's
women will welcome this announce
ment since the inauguration of the
high heels. If your druggist doesn't
have freezone tell him to order a small
bottle for you. Adv.
HOMESTEADS FOR SOLDIERS
Opening of Reclamation Projects Ad
vocated by Irrigation Congress.
Yakima, Wash. Soldiers and sailors
returning from the European war will
find the government ready to give
them homesteads on reclamation proj
ects and prepared to set them up in

Washington Irrigation institute is c
acted by that time. Legislation fol

fore a recent meeting of the institute
will be fostered here.
At a meeting of the executive com
mittee of the institute held here Fri
day evening, the proposition was dis
cussed at length and a legislative com-
mitee composed of R. K. Tiffany,
chairman, E. M. Chandler, George E.

be presented to congress through
Washington members. The commit
tee also decided on the date and place

Kittitas Hay Stock is Low.
Ellensburg, Wash. Due to tho' fact
that the hay stock of the Kittitas val
ley is low, and because prices are not
higher than the average, hay dealers
here do not have much fear of the gov
ernment regulation of prices.
Kittitas valley has been estimated
to have only about 7000 tons of hay on
stocks held by dealers. In former
years the government only used about
10 per cent of the crop, while at least
one-fourth of the crop this year has
been sent to Manila and Camp
Cotton Grown Along Columbia.
Ellensburg, Wash. T. Brulett, of
McPherson's sheep ranch at Rich
mond's ferry, on the Columbia river,
has raised some cotton. It is of fair
quality and good color, but is not long
and had not fully matured. Those in
terested in its cultivation think that
because of the long growing ceon
and the hot, dry summers, and the fact
that the country there is only 435 feet
above sea level, the cotton may be
grown on a commercial scale.
