A HOME-MADE HAIR GROWE. THAT DOES MARVELS. During the last few years announce ments have appeared occasionally tell ing how to make a really good hair tonic that would actually make the hair grow, and it- gives us great pleasure to learn that" so many who have tried it have obtained such remarkable results. One lady writes that immediately after reading the formula, she went to her chemist and had him put up as direct ed, 1 ounce of Lavona de Composee, J dram Menthol Crystals. and 3 ounces Bay rum. She took this home and, although her hair had been falling out terribly and she was threatened with baldness, she was astonished and delighted to note that the falling out of the hair stopped immediately, and the - hair itself began to grow in an amazing manner. In fact, she states that it has already grown nearly S inches in a little over two months. Moreover, her hair is now brighter, glossier and more luxuriant than ever, and is still grqwing. She rubbed .the tonic into the roots twice...

George, continuing, said the Orangemen professed to be bhocked that force' should .be used for setting up a great free self-governing Parlia wnent in Ireland. When did Ulster acquire such a de testation of coercion I Coercion pre sented" no horror when the Orangemen evicted patriotic peasants for the'non. payment of extortionate rents.

If Liberalism flinched an inch before the insolent, arrogant ulague they would be unfit to be any longer the instrument for controlling s great Empire.
