One officer In the Decatur Wabash switchmen's organization stated Thursday morning that although no definite move has as yet been made by that body, there is a probability that demands for advanced working conditions will be made.

RESISTS REMOVAL OF HIS FENCE Master fn Chancery Issues Injunction Affainit Commissioners. A temporary injunction was issued bv Master in Chancery W. H.

Heil, a brother, asked for the Injunction. om« time ago the highway commissioners had Gaorge V. Lorlng- mak» a survey to determine whether the Lost bridge road along the east side of the Heil property was where the records showed It should be. The engineer found ttmt according to the records, the fence along the east boundary of the Heil farm encroached twenty-six feet onto the pufc- Ilc highway. It has been there for several years, wa« there when Mr, Hell bought the property, and he 1 resists the action of the commissioners in setting- it back. The attorney for the commissioners Informed them that they had the right to the original road. way as shown by the records. IN EARLY DATS. There are several places in the county where the roads do not follow the official routes. In the early days when land was cheap and hills were plenty, it was not unusual for farmers to go around a hill instead of over it and those unofficial routes were traveled for many years and some times when it Is desired to cut down a hill and place the road where the records show It ought to be, opposition is made by people owning adjoining property.

Hair Made Beautiful Beautiful hair* thick, fluffy, lutsrons and absolutely free from dandruff is not so much a gift of nature as a matter of care and proper nourishment. Hair Is like a plant--it will not grow healthy and beautiful unless it has attention and proper nutriment. Parisian Sage, daintily perfumed and easily applied, tones up and invigorates the roots of the hair, and furnishes the necessary nourishment to not only save and beautify the hair, but also stimulate it to grow long, heavy, soft, fluffy and radiant with life. When used frequently and rubbed into the scalp, it will simply work wonders. Just one application stops Itching head, removes dandruff and cleanses the hair of all dust and excessive oil. Since Parisian Sage, which can be obtained from The Decatur Drug Co., or at any drug store, never disappoints, it is no longer necessary for any woman to be humiliated because of thin, streaky, faded, lifeless or unattractive hair.
