It has without the ordinary appliance used for such purposes, won its way, and been heartily welcomed to most of the cities and town* in the United State*, the Canadas, and the West India Islands. Nor is this result surprising when It Is remembered that its popularity is bused upon its merits, solely as established by actual tests 1 hat this preparation will actually Restore gray Hair to Its Natural Color, p/oduce a luxuriant growth upon the heads of the bald, prevent the air from falling off. and when used as a tonic ar ticle, produce a continual flow of the natural fluid and thus render the hair soft, glossy and wavy, destroy diseases of the scalp, ana expel dandruff; the certificates of distinguished gentlemen ana ladles in every part of t ue country who have tried It, and therefore speak what they know, most ful ly attest. That by a proper use of this Restorative tee hair can be made to attain and retain its natu ral color to almost any ai^e alotted to humanity, by removing the cause of disease from the scalp no matter how long standing ?the concurrent tes timonials of the press end the certificates of nu merous reswetetp individuals of both sexes, to the use of this curative, as well as of the recom mendations of editors and certificates before alia ded to, can be had of all agents.

M. do V., one of the head officials in one of our public offices, vu compelled, inconscqunct of his position, to wake occasional incursions into 9ocietv, p*rt5cularly in official cirrles. Although he was a married tnan, he often went out alone, for his wife ha<J little fondness for this kind of party, aud could uot often make up her mind to accompany him. M. de V. was a singularly absent-minded man, and as his wife was seldom present to recall him to the speculations of common life; be was perpetually liable to those little incidents which unpleasantly disturb the sur face of an honest and regular household?en gagements forgotten, hired carriage left stand ing under the shed, to run up a long bill in waiting, a tippet left in a coach, and to come to the very worst and last, an overcoat ex changed in the dre~sin* room. '?My dear," said Madame V. one day to her husband, "thero is perhaps one meth >d to remedy this last inconvenience. Why do yon not put one of your cards in the pocket of your overcoat ? In this way the person whom you had victimized by your carele-ssncss oould easily repair the trouule, being provided with your name and address." "It is an excellent idea," replied M. de V., "and I promise you that I will take advantage of it." In fact on the first occasion which offered, M. de V., encbantid with the expedient, insert ed a card in the depths of his oveeooat pocket, and behold him setting forth to a ball given by the minister to whooe office ho was attached. He showed himself therefor an hour, and then a* it was still early, he took the occasion t\ make a call on one of his acquaintance', and then upon another?and these friends lived so far apart. In short, it was nearly three o'clock when he entered his carriage lor the last time, and ordered the driver to drive him to hit a >me. It was so late that the porter would probably leave him to wait in the street, and the ther mometer waa near zero. Not at a!l; as far a* ho could see he rem-trk e*l a cab stationed al the door, and the door itself wa3 wide open. Moreover, his own carriage had scarcely stopped, and while br was fumbling in his pockets for the coachman'* fare, the porter's Hoor opened suddenly, and displayed on the sidewalk, to the surprise of M. de V., a gentleman in a ball dress, with ai. overcoat on Lis arm. "And here you are at last; it is very fortu nate;" cried our unknown, red with oold and anger. "I've been waiting for yon leog enough; it is very sensible, to be sure, to stay ^>ut until such an hour ac this. The astonishment of M. de V. increased; he opened his eyes and sought in vain to re cognize the individual who was thus waiting at his door, to salute him in ao unceremonious a manner. " Your pardon sir. but I have not the hon or?" "Are you M. de V?" Interrupted the stranger. " Yes; I am M. de V." "Well then, alight and we can come to an explanation ai'snrwards.'' M de V., completely subjugated by the authoritative bate of his strange interlocutor, obeyed without replyiug, alighted from his carriage, dismissed hiseoachman, after having paid him, and passed over the door-step, following the stranger. "Now," sail the later, stopping at the foot of the staircase, "you will please to return my overcoat." "Your overcoat T." "Undoubtedly; here is yours, which was given me in the place of my own, at the minis ter's soiree, where you were, were you not ?" "I waa." "Fortunately , you had left one of your cards in the pocket; if it had not been for that, I should have been in a worse oinbrassinent Know sir, that I am a stranger in Paris?here only for a few days. I am a provincial; I am a magistrate in the town of B ; aud I have hero ouly a little apartment, the key of which 1 had in my overcoat You understand that, thanks to you, here I have been waiting more than two hours at the door of your house, with my wife and daughter in the porter's lodge. A'eensible thing for you to come home so late. Where the deuce have you been since you left the minister's?" "But, sir, it seems to me," said M. de V., attempting to reply to the somewhat rude apos trophes of the provincial magistrate, feeling all the while a little mystified by the queer accident. "But, finally," interrupted the stranger, "what matter is it; the main thirg is, that you have come home at last, aud now let us change overcoats." "With pleasure," said M. de V.; "here is yours. "Thank you." The interchange was effected,, and while tho magistrate was preparing to puton the garment to the possession ot whiA be had just bson re stored, M. de V. wj:s hastening, as in duty bound, to take a polite farewell of the stranger, with a flood of excuses, when suddenly the provincial uttered a loud cry of despair, his face grew pale; his nose almost so, nis eves Sparkled, and a dull imprecation was issuing from his throat. " W hat is the matter?" said M. de V., in alarm. , A . " The matter is, this aocursed overcoat is not mine!" "Impossible!" ? " You see it is so; I can't get it on, and the key is not in the pocket." " In that case, sir, it is elear that I am not responsible?address yourself to some one else. There was great confusion in the dressing room but if you look carefully 1 am much obliged to you for taking the trouble to bring me my ovcrcoat." Pronouncing these words in a mocking tone which ho thought was excusable after an assult of this kind, M de V. began to beat a retreat up stairs. But the excited magistrate, with the most desperato leap, threw himself between him ana tho first stair. "No, sir," exclaimed he, with a voice trem nloos with rage "you shall not escape mo thus, for it was you who took my overcoat for your own. 1 was assured that no one had quitted the saloon but you and me; you must have passed the night in another huuse; you have made some blunder, for you are apt t) fall into them, the porter tell* me." "Ah, yes, sir." ? "Where did you go when you left the minis ter's?" "To University street, sir? "Very well, sir." "And afterwards to Drout street, air. "Heavens above! I risk nothing; but it's sensible for a man to be running abont in this way in such a night as this. You hftre been nowhere else, I hope?"' "No, sir. ? "Oh! I begin to breathe. Come, sir, I have kept my cab. Be to kind as to get into it with me." "To do what?" "To go and look for my overcoat. "Ah?what for?" "Do you not understand?the key to my apartment?" _ "But what ean I do? To-morrow early I will make diligent search I am in haste my I wife srwaits me." "Indeed! and my wife and my daughter? my poor daughter, sir?a pale ohild. who has no asylum but the porter's lodge. Look, nr. look, and if your ears are closed to the voice of justice, your heart may he aeaesmble to that of pity." Paternal lore lent such accents to the some what hoarse voice of the unfortunate magu | trate, that M. de V. could not help feeai ^ *oi" ?motion, and the eight of * ?trr tefacd oat in the ?m oWr of i? while a young girl crouched. half fru?n. ore* the stive in which the Ins til ext:a:t, soften* ed Lin entirely.

"Ah, sir, she is in such a state." "She has not, then gone to bed7" "Gone to bed! two lone women with a thief at their heels'" M. de \ . did not wish to hear more. He went into his wife's rojm, and foand her half dead with terror, bat in front of a good fire. He comforted her in a few words, prepared her for the visit of Julius, and after installing them in the parlor, in company with his wifo aud sou, he hastened to reioin the magistrate, who was pacing up and down the sidewalk' grumbling between his teeth. ' "Sensible maa, thie?at ta:h an homr of the night." The overcoat was not foand at the first at tempt, for at University street the valet to whom he entrusted it. affirmed that he had re stored it, safe and sound, and it was ouly at Rue Druout that they perceived it, rolled on the corner of a bench, by the sido of the sleeping guardian The magistrate was saved. The key waa In the pocket But admire the vagaries of fate. Oar little story, wbich seemed to have a right to but one denoument, went on, while the cab was rolling off. to weave a second. We left Madame de V. doing the honon of her parlor, with the help of Julias, to the wife andjdaiighter of the distinguished magistrate of tae oity of B. When we find them again, a sort ol intimacy had been formed between these different personages, who hai dosu*t>1c itm of their mutual existence an hour before. The two ladies agreed marvellously at the first, as to Julius, ho suddenly discovered a great charm, not only in the sweet and distinguished expression of feoe, hut in the modest and in toiiectuat conversation of the youug lady. W e have no need to add that the acquaintance did not stop there, but that ths magistrate, who came to Paris on a furlough, found him self obliged tn ask for a prolongation of it, in order to preside at the marriage of Julius and his daughter. A caution to people who change their over coats on leaving a party, and wtio forget to leave their name and address in their own.

It says: The farmen in the S"uth part of this eouaty had several days of rejoioing last week, that the inveterate enemy of their crops had dis appeared, many of them having sowed their fields for the third time; but on Friday after noon an innumerable multitude, a cloud of Km-hoppers descended upon their farms, learning the proprivtora to speculate upon the fable of the fox and the swallow, while the more hungry swarm devoured the last remain ing patches which had been left by the pre vious swarms, and the tender blade of the third sowing. Any people Hut the Latter Day Saints would be aiaeouraged. The fourta mowing has commenced; seed very scarce. Some of the farmers are drilling the wheat, as seed has failed when sowed broadcast as asual. The same paper of the 27th says : On Saturday and Sunday the grasshoppen filled the sky i'or three miles deep, or as far as they ooald be seen without the aid of tele scopes, and somewhat resembling a now storm, which latter would have been very ac ceptable to the parched grass and cattle. Drought very severe?the oreeks low and the weather hot, tho common bouse flies are very thick, and are as troublesome as they usually are in September. Amid all this wide destruction of crops and herd-range cae seldom saw a downcast or gloomy eoun enanoe, nearly all appearing as cheerful as though surrounded by the most fa vorable prospects, thus plainly demonstrating the strong confidence in the wise and jest dis pensations of Providenoe, which pervades the masses of our population, and that, too, under circumstances wnich would pale the oheek and seatter the population of any other com munity bat Latter Day Saints.
