UNFIT FOR WORK. At the West Wales Munitions Court, held in the Guildhall, Swansea, before Mr Vaughan Edwards, a munition worker was chatged with having been drunk. In a letter he indignantly denied the charge, saying he had run from the train, and therefore the pint of beer he had drunk smelt fresh, and deceived the con- stable. If ho had money, he said, he could get 20 or 40 witnesses to testify that he had been sober. The police inspector said he was sent for. and he found defendant under the influence of drink. Defendant said: I've a couple of pints, but if 1 am stopped it moons starvation for my wife and family." Witness advised him to jo home. The Chairman said they were satisfied that d; iendant was not in a fit ctate to enter a controlled establishment, es- pecially on the class of v;ork on which he was engaged. They thought that a fine of 91 would mpet the case.

LADIES LOTS OFI BEAUTIFUL HAIR
LADIES! LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL HAIR., I II Dandertne" IV akes Hair Thick, Glossy and Wavy. I Removes all Dandruff, Stops ItCh-j Ing Scalp and Falling Hair. To be possesssd of a head of heavy, beautiful hair; soft, lustrous, fluffy, wavy and free from dandruff is merely a matter of using a little Danderine. It is easy and inexpensive to have nice, soft hair and lots of it. Just get a shilling bottle of Knowlton's Danderine now—apply a little as directed and within ten minutes there will be an appearance of abundance, freshness, fluffiness and an incomparable gloss and lustre, and try as you will you cannot find a trace of dandruff or falling hair; but your real surprise will be after about two weeks' use, when you will see new hair-fine and downy at first-yes- but really new hair—sprouting out all over your scalp. Danderine is, we believe, the only sure hair grower, deF' oyer of dan- druff and cure for itchy scalp and it never fails to stop falling hair at once. All chemists sail and recommend Danderine, Is. lid. and 2s. 3d. a bottle. If you want to prove how pretty and soft your hair really is, moisten A cloth with a little Da-nderine and carefully draw it through your hair—taking one small strand at a time. Your hair will be eoft, glossy, and beautiful in just a few momenta—a delightful surprise awaits everyone who tries this.
