When you darkea vour hair with
Sago Tea and Sulphur, no one can tell,
oecause it s done so naturally, so even
ly. Preparing this mixture, though, at
homo is mussy and troublesome. For
50 cents you can buv at anv druer store
the ready-to-use touic called "Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Compound." You
just dampen a sponge or soft brush
with it and draw this through your
hair, taking one small strand nt a time.
By morning all gray hair disappears,
and after another application or two,
your hair becomes beautifully darken
ed, glossy and luxuriane. You will al
so discover dandruff is gone and hair
has stopped falling.

is a sign of old age, and as we all desire
a youthful and attractive appearance,

Stock Grazing On
National Forest Reserve
Portland, Ore., Dec. 22. Accordiug
to the annual report of the secretary
of agriculture, there were grazed last
year on the National Forests under pay
permits, 1,724,000 cattle and horses and
7,300,000 sheep and goats. Several hun
dred thousand head of milch and work
animals were grazed free of charge, and
moro than 3.500.000 head of stock cross
ed the forests, feeding en route, also
iree or cnarge.
To show the inereased use of the for
ests for grazing, the secretary states
that during the fiscal year 1905 there
were only 092,000 cattlo aud horses
and 1,514,000 sheep and goats on ap
proximately 85,000 acres, The nnmboi
of animals now sustained in proportion
to the area of the forests is 50 per cent
greater than it was 10 years ngo. Since
1905 the number of persons holding
grazing privileges has Increased 200 per
cent. This can be attributed princi
pally to widor use bv settlers and small
According to the report, the greater
part of the summer range in the west
ern stntes is in the National Forests.
Under tho regulated eovernment sva-
tern the forage ia utilized fully, with
out injury to tree growth, and with ade
quate safeguards against watershed
damage It is stated that tho produc
tivity of the land for forage in mnHt
places has been restored and every
where is increasing';' the industry has
been made more stable; stock comes
irom tue torests in better condition:
range wars have stonned: ranch nrnn-
orty has increased in value; and a larg
er aroa has bcon made available through
iuK improvements, it is probable, so
the report states, that innnnnnne,
pounds of beef and mutton are- sold
each year from herds and flocks oc
cupying the rnnges. That the forests
have promotod the development of the
stock industry is indicated. This is nr
prec.ited by stockmen and they are urg
ing that a similur system of range regu
lation bo extended to the unreserved
public lands.
The secretary concludes by stating
that it is not merely the stock industry
that has been benefited. The grazing
privilege has been so distributed as to
promote healthy community growth, in
crease settlement, prevent monopoly,
and diffuse prosperity. In other word's
public control hns served social as well
as economic ends.
