SAGE TEA AND SULPHUR DARKENS YOUR GRAY HAIR Look Years Younger! Try Grandma's Recipe of Sage and Sulphur and Nobody Will Know. Almost everyone knows that Sago Tea and Sulphur properly compounded, brings back the natural color and lustre to the hair when faded, streaked or gray; also ends dandruff, itching scalp and stops falling hair. Years ago the only way to get this mixture was to make it at home, which is mussy and troublesome. Nowadays we simply ask at any drug store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy" You will get a large bottle for about 50 cents. Everybody uses this old, famous recipe, he- cause no one can possibly tell that you darkened your hair, as it does it so 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 application or two, yottr hair becomes beautifully dark, thick and glossy and you look years younger.

Paris.--A capital professional interest attaches to the dental department of the American ambulance at Neuilly. Perhaps never before, certainly never since dental science took on the character of "surgery of the face," has there been such an opportunity for dentists. The number and variety of injuries to the lower part of the face which have been presented by the wounded from the battlefields along the Marne and Aisne has never been surpassed in even the most remarkable railway accidents, those other feasts of dentists. It is due again to American ingenuity and independence that the dental aspect of war surgery has been given any chance. First of all Americans are the best dentists, as they wer^ the first practical ones. In this branch of medicine Europe still goes to school to America, Then, too, the American ambulance was founded under such conditions of freedom from bureaucratic control that it was possible for the eminent head surgeon. Doctor Du Bouchet, himself a son of a dentist and a brother of one, to turn over to a special department all jaw cases without stirring up rivalries between grades of surgeons and physicians and dentists with different kinds and colors of stripes on their sleeves. In the French hospitals dental operating-has not been nearly so success- fnl, not only because the French dentist is not mechanically and medically so competent as his American confrere, but even more pronouncedly because the dentist's military grade is necessarily lower than the physician's or surgeon's. Dentists in U. S. Army. In the English army, too, there are no places regularly reserved for dentists. In fact the American is the only army for which dentists are regularly engaged just as surgeons are, and in the American army the grade' of the dentist, that of first lieutenant, from which he cannot rise, is far from satisfactory to the profession in general. The result of this particularly bad foresight on the part of the French military bureaucrats is that no provision can be made for the curing of injuries to the jaw, because it is out of the question for surgeons to attempt to do dental work. At the American ambulance now the dental department is receiving many cases for reopera- tion from eminently competent surgeons. The case of a man whose jaw, two- fMrds shot away, was sewn and pieced together so that it was all out of line and whose lips, ripped to pieces by the bail which destroyed his mouth and left only fragments hashing about his neck, were so sewed np that his beard was growing away prosperously inside Ms mouth and tickling the roof of it, leaving the patient unable to speak and scarcely able to eat, was only one of dozens. In six weeks the American dentist treating this man had the jaw and lips back again in normal position and a monstrous face is turned into one which only a dentist could ever tell had been injured. It would be folly for anyone but a dentist to attempt to describe in their technical aspect the peculiar character of the problems presented for solution in the dental ciruic of the American ambulance. Rib in Place of Jawbone. Roughly speaking, the injuries which the writer actually saw one morning in the clinic were about as much worse than those reported, in photographs, from bad railway accidents as these latter were worse than face injuries of ordinary life. The most striking if not the most interesting cdses were those m which all or most of the lower jaw had been shot away. The basis of repairing such mouths was the substitution of a piece of rib for the missing jawbone. Teeth were placed upon the new jaw and in the course of a few ·\veeks the patient could speak and eat normally. There were some cimous cases in which the tongue had been shot off in the middle. An English boy -who had gone to the hospital in that condition spoke quite clearly out of his made-over mouth after only a few weeks of care. There were many cases, too, where bullets had entered at tlie top of the jaw on one side of the face, clipped off from twelve to sixteen teeth flatly down along the jaws, and blown the whole business--teeth, pieces of jawbone and shreds of tissue--out through a hole which took up practically aB of the opposite flat side of the lower face. After a very short time such cases are completely cured, so that the patient may have a far better mouth than he had when he went to the hospital. The surgeons work in co-operation with the dentists, so that any complications in the way of abseeEses in the varioas facial glands are properly attended to medically. A difficulty of the various jaw fractures under treatment was that the bones in question were not merely broken into ten or a dozen separated morsels--a thing which dentists know well how to deal with--but were rather pulverized into a perfectly unrecognizable mass of utterly smashed up matter. Teeth were blown down into obscure corners at the bottom of the mouth, from which position they could be extracted only with great difficulty on account of the danger of bleeding. X-ray photographs gave no assistance to the operators in these cases because there were literally no solid pieces left for putting together. The patients appeared to suffer extremely little pain during the course of the fixing of ali sorts of complicated wire apparatus in their wretched mouths because the pressures and forces employed were applied so very gradually. There were several me» present for messing who iiad been under ether on the operating table two hours before while a surgeon placed morsels of their ribs where their own lower jaws had once been; these fellows were smoking cigarettes and whistling a little and trying out a bit of conversation just to see how fhe new halves of their mouths worker?. Apart from the line of stitches up an*, down the center of their chins the faces looked quite normal. From Many HospitaSs. It is extraordinary what a large number of such difficult cases one dentist can attend to between nine and eleven in the morning. A very few minutes suffice for each case because thd cnring eflfocted t»y the apparatus within the mouth is so gradual a process. Six operators had perhaps sixty or seventy cases in their chairs darinc the short time that the correspondent was permitted to remain in the clinic. The majority of the cases so far have come from the wounded taken directly to the hospital from the front, but during the last few weeks many cases have been received from other hospitals whose surgeons have heard of the work being done by the American dental clinic. Alfgt of the§e cases were for reopert- tion, of coarse. In addition to the more serious scr gical work which the American dentists are carrying on a large amount of extremely important minor work in the way of repairs to bad teeth is being accomplished. Soldiers who cannot eat cannot fight and it takes better than ordinary teeth to chew army food. The number of men who have been sent back from the trenches because they have broken off their rotted teeth by biting on hard biscuits and have then fallen ill from indigestion of food swallow fed uhole is very large. There are also in the regular military hospitals of Pans and the provincial cities hundreds of men who ha\ e simply lost their false teeth in the trenches. The state of dental culture in France is so low--until 1S94 any person whatsoever could hang out his dentist's sign- that ilie ordinary recruit has teeth which' an American dentist would say offhand made Lim useless tor long campaigning. The English soldiers, loo, have very bad teeth The consequence is that toothache is common in the English trenches, even among officers, strange as that maj seem. One English general even had to have a dentist visit him under fire to pull a tooth. Important as Good Feet. The point which the American dentists emphasize is that dental work is so rapidly done that it would be possible to ha\e every man properly equipped with a chewing apparatus in time of peace and that eating is such an important part of a soldier's activity that it is as foolish to send him out to battle with bad teeth as it would be to drill men with impossibly crippled feet with the idea of making excellent marchers out of them. In order to raise the dental standard in armies, of course, it will be necessary to grant medical rank to dental practitioners, who consider themselves as medical men who have taken up the legitimate medical specialty of the teeth and mouth. Thus it is hoped that the war may have the incidental good effect of advertising the tremendous social value of the American dental standard and introducing into armies some sort of systematic treatment of this important matter. AUDREY MUNSON Long aft*r she and everyone else of this generation shall have become dust, Audrey Munson, who posed for three-fifths of all the statuary of the Panama-Pacific exposition, will live in the bronzes and canvasses of the art centers of the world. Her form and features are depicted on every principal building at the exposition. At least twenty million persons will behold the wonderfully modeled head and figure of the girl during 1915. Miss Munson began posing when she was fourteen years old and during the nine years that have passed she hag been in constant demand by America's foremost painters and sculptors.

Fashionable Goods Not Wanted. ' That Latin-Americans insist on having just the kind of article that salts their taste is illustrated by an incident In Guatemala. An old gentleman in the interior, a large ranch owner, had always been used to a certain kind of necktie, and asked a local house to buy a number of them for him. The house ordered several from an American concern, but the latter -wrote back that that kind of necktie had been out of date for 20 years, and seat several of the latest design. These were refused, however, the old .kind was ob- taiced from Europe, and the American house lost what might have been an ooening wedge to a good trade.
