Rub a little of this into the roots of the hair, and rinse thoroughly wih warm water and dry. 1 also use a quinine hair tonic freely, which keeps the scalp clean and th6 hair in a beautiful and healthy condition, and is especially good for dandruff and falling hair. I find the best tonic can be made by mixing a half pint of alcohol with half a pine of water and adding one ounce of beta quinol (liquid); or you can use one pint of Bay Rum in place of the alcohol and water. This makes a quinine hair tonic better than the high-priced imported makes and a whole pint only costs 65 to 75 cents. I am sure if every lady will try this recipe they will always have young and beautiful hair, and plenty of it. Jacob Meyers and Peter F.

Attention Called to Possible Contamination of City Supply Dams Unsanitary conditions which prevail in Lebanon, and the menace to health and happiness which exists iere in an alarming degree, was again the subject of discussion at he semi-monthly meeting of the Board of Health in city hall on Monlay evening. The reference to the matter was brought about by another etter from Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, tate commissioner of health, who tales that he has again received a etltion from some forty residents, enaiiis and property owners, asking or the abatement of a esss pool nui- ance on one of the city's highways, t was stated iacidentally-.that .ooun- 11 of Salem Lutheran church, is to old a meeting this evening to. take ction on the same alleged nuisance, nd that another petition will prob- bly go to Dr. Dixon as the result f the meeting 1 this evening. •• ; But this was by no means the only omplalnt. In the center of the city ontents of cesspools are flowing into neighboring cellars, and there is trouble everywhere, so it was reported. CESSPOOLS OVERFLOWING. Even at places where there are no sinks on the public highways, private cesspools are overflowing, and in some of the homes unbearable stench comes from the cellars into which is pouring the filth from overflowing pools. "UP AGAINST IT." The most unfortunate part of the whole affair is that property owners whose cesspools- are causing the trouble are-powerless to do anything. Some of them who have been notified, are known to have spent hundreds of dollars to better conditions, but have failed. They say they are willing to spend any reasonable amount of money for improvements if someone will only suggest a plan of doing the work with prospect of success. There are a number of property owners whose places are most complained of who are only too wiling to provide relief, but who admit they are simply "up against it." With the heavy rains of the spring, the cesspools are overtaxed. The underground passages are filled up with water and sewage, and some of the cesspools are literally spouting wells of filth. In one instance one of the cesspools was pumped dry at reat expense, and it was filled up again the next morning. STATE INSPECTOR. All these things have been fully discussed by the board at previous meetings, and they -feei that there is nothing to be done. It -was therefore decided that nr. Dixon shall be told >f the cone ns existing, and of he willingneb. the property owners to correct e nuisances, and hen request him to send a state jealth department inspector here to ook over the ground with a view of getting the commissioner to make a uggestion which will afford relief. CITY SUPPLY DAMS. Attention was" also rcalled to-the possible contamination - of the city uppiy during toe operations at Dajn ^o, 2, at South Mountain. It was ointed out that the contractors here must employ much strange abor, and that it •-. is ;within he range of possibility that fevers might be dragged to the waters hrough the presence there of. so many men. It was suggested that he water board be reminded of the anger, and that they issue notices srohibiting any conduct which could ossibly lead to a pollution of the vater. No action was taken. Healh Officer Gingrich reported hat there is one home in the city till quarantined for contagious disease.
