Young Boy's Fate on Way to School

Dundee Family Twice Bereaved by Street Accidents
Within the space of a few months two members of a Dundee family have fallen victim to the ever-increasing street traffic.

On Thursday afternoon George Cairns, an eight year old schoolboy, who resided with his parents at 29 Union Street, was fatally injured in a motor car accident in South Tay Street. This followed upon the death of Mrs McBain, 121 Cowgate, which occurred on December 22nd.

Mrs McBain was a sister of Mrs Cairns, and it is a coincidence that the boy and his Aunt should have been killed in accidents of a similar nature.

George Cairns, who was a pupil at St Andrew's RC High School, Artillery Lane was on his way back to school after the dinner interval. He was in the company of his brother and the boys had to cross Tay Street to get to the school, George was walking a few yards ahead when the accident occurred.

It appears that he stepped between a stationery car and a stationery motor lorry. A tramcar was travelling along Tay Street towards Nethergate, and a motor was coming some distance behind the tram car. The unfortunate boy waited between the stationery vehicles until the tramcar had passed, but he was not aware of the approach of the other motor. He stepped into the track of this machine and was knocked down.

An Ideal Tonic

If you feel so weak and so depressed and tired and get out of breath very easily, you should really try a few iron velloids.

Every woman should take iron velloids with meals now and then. They cause neither indigestion nor constipation. When you consider they have been a household remedy for over 30 years and the thousands of women (men and children) who have derived benefit from them you must be sure they are a good thing.

They are great blood enrichers. They are most inexpensive - treatment for 10 days 1/3 - for five weeks 3/-. All chemists stock them - ask for iron velloids No 2. Those with quinine are iron velloids No 2A and are an excellent tonic for men. Remember nerves need a constant supply of good red blood - therefore, it is necessary to take iron velloids No 2 if you are nervy.

Iron Velloids - An Ideal Tonic!

How to Darken Grey Hair

Mrs M.D. Gillespie, a well known beauty specialist, recently gave out the following statement regarding grey hair:-

Anyone can prepare a simple mixture at home that will darken grey hair, and make it soft and glossy. To a half pint of water add 1oz of Bay Rum, a small box of Orlex Compound and ¼oz glycerine. These ingredients can be purchased at any chemist at very little cost.

Apply to the hair twice a week until the desired shade is obtained. This will make a grey-haired person look twenty years younger. It does not colour the scalp, is not sticky or greasy and does not rub off.
