QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. M.—We do not coincide in your theory of preventing the falling out or changing color of the hair by remedies taken internally. The cause of premature baldness or change of color in the hair in our opinion is entirely local and is the result of the impaired operation of tha nerves and other agents in supplying the necessary nutriment, and not of the proper elements in the blood. Your theory is not without advocates however. In an excellent article on this subject an English review, some years since, a hair pill was recommended, as being likely to supply the assumed deficiency in the constituents of the blood, to which you attribute diseases of the hair. And a New York paper recently contained the following in support of the same theory: " In lieu of all this, science now proposes to color the hair by internal applications! Science proposes to contemplate the change of color in the bairns a disease, and to remedy it accordingly. The color of the hair is conceive...

GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. ** An exchange says:—" There is a parnmpa going the rounds of the papers to the effect that Ooi. Oott's invention of the revolver is no novelty, and that pistols of a similar construction have losg existed in the Tower of London. This is a feet. At the great exhibition in 1851 t> was shown a pistol in the collection of ancient arms, which in construction nearly resembled that of Col. Colt. It had six chambers, but it was tbe barrel which revolved. It is perfectly possible, however, that Col. Colt had never seen or heard of these pistols, as it is more than likely that the officials in charge of the armor did not themselves know of their existence. In the excitement consequent on the great exhibition, they were, however, disentombed, and were regarded with much curiosity." * * A new plan is proposed for constructing horse shoes, so that they will not slip on the Russ pavement It has been observed that horses' feet rarely slip forward or backward, but sidewa...

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. Fragrant Flowers.—lt is a fashionable but erroneous remark, that in America we have no fragrant flowers. What, for instance, can be more delightful than the Mayflower, or trailing Arbutus exclusive American, that refuses to be transplanted. The bulbous Arethusa is also exceedingly rich and aromatic in its odor. The Fagonia has a more constant and sweeter scent, though not so spicy. There is not one flower in Europe, not even the violet, whose scent gives, in the course of the season, so much pleasure to so many people as our white, pond lily. In July, we may gather in the rich swamp, the magnolia glanca, one single flower of which will fill tbe house with delicious perfume. The white Azalea also loads the air of July with its riches. In August, the Clethra throws out its long white spikes, which Oil the air with sweet perfume; and the Apios, while concealing its purple clusters under the green leaves, reveals their presence to the traveler by the fragrance that ...

OUR CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 28 September 1856

OUR CREED. We love religion, not the priest— We tove our country and our God ; We love the man who governs least, Not one who rules with iron rod. Each family should be a state. Where all domestic virtues grow; The heart an empire—then let fate Attempt In vain its owerthrow. We love the farmer, and his toil— The talismans of life are there; We treasure God's great gift of soil. And his creation fair. We love bright gold, that it may strew Contentment in the paths of care; We hate the man who never knew That he could have too large a share. We love both wit and merit fine, Though poverty their grace unfold; The diamonds in the dirty mine Bhine Just as bright as set in gold. We love the beautiful, the good— The finished work of nature s plan ; For when they're fully understood, They constitute the perfect roan. We love in woman virtue, truth, And know such gems would be less rare, If pity for her tender youth Exposed the tempter's ready snare : Her life is often overcast, And darkness...

A few minutes afterwards, Mr. Barnard arrived. There waa an expression of seriousness both iv his manner and features which did not escape the notice of the lover, whose heart trembled at the resolution which honor and gratitude alike impelled him to make. A quarter of an hour elapsed, during which the banker was occupied in his private room with his head cashier. Dick could have counted every moment as it passed by the pulsations of his heart. " Now then," he murmured, as the cashier quitted the room of his principal, looking very much puzzled at the humor he had found him in, " to know ray fate." " Come in," said the well-known voice of Mr. Barnard, in answer to Dick's knock.
