They made and used a "sage tea," and their dark, glossy hair long after middle life was due to this fact. Our mothers have gray hairs before "they are fifty, but they are beginning to appreciate the -wisdom of our grandmothers in using1 "sage tea" for their hair, and are fast following suit. The present generation has the advantage of the past in that it can get a ready to use preparation called Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur. As a scalp tonic and color restorer, this preparation is vastly superior to the ordinary "sage tea" made by our grandmothers, and it can be bought for 130 cents and $1 a bottle at almost any first-class drug store, or wl" be sent direct by the Wyeth Chemical Company, 74 Cortlandt New York City, upon receipt of price.

Lomax answered JenisonTs letter telling of the city's plan's ibf a celebration, to the effect that he would be glad to confer with the Chamber-- of Commerce secretary regarding the proposed prcfgram. The -entrance of the Western Pacific into this city has a peculiar significance in the fact that the Gould road will be the only one of the three transcontinental railroads coming herp that has only one terminal on the coast, and that dne in Oakland.

The advent of this new trans-continental system, long looked forward to by the citizens of a score of large cities and towns along the route, as well as for multitudes of dwellers in the smaller villages, is an event which will be fittingly celebrated by the entire western slope.

The equipment Is gradually arriving at the Oakland yards, and eight diners, the first to be used, have already arrived. They will be operated by the company and not by the Pullman people as is in vogue In some of the systems in the East.

The company hopes to make the same time between here and the East as scheduled on the other trans-continental railroads, but although tickets were today sent from headquarters to points along the line, the exact timetable will not be made up until after a consultation's held with E.

LIEUTENANT GROWS 4 INCHES IN YEAR Army Rations Have Remarkable Effect On Soldier at the Presidio. BAM FRANCISCO, July 20.

The medical officers at the Presidio were astounded when It developed during the annual physical examination of officers that a new army record Wd been established by a young lieutenant of the Eighth infantry. Violating all laws of physical growth, Lieutehant Robert R. Fletcher has in a single year added four inches to his height and forty-five pounds to his weight. A year ago Lieutenant Fletcher, at the age of 25, weighed 16fl pounds, measured but thirty-one inches ground the waist and extended upwards to an altitude of six feet. At this time his weight is 210 pounds, his waist measurement is forty-two inches and the crown of his head extends to the ambitious elevation of six feet four inches.

SCIENTISTS PUZZLED. Though the men of medicine and science are frankly puzzled, a number of reasons have been assigned as a possible cause. One officer states that It is possible that a new army- ration is responsible. Several months ago Lieutenant Fletcher, and a number of others ate nothing but this new wafer food for; a whole month. Though the food seemed to satisfy hunger, it was noticed that the men undergoing the experiment gave considerable indication of fatigue of a.

kind similar, the doctors say, to the kind that is noticeable in young boys during their growing stage, and It is possible that some of the ingredients of the food caused an abnormal growth of bone. An investigation will be made to ascertain if any of the other men who ate the food have been affected in a similar manner.
