ment regarding gray nairt
"Any one can prepare a simple
mixture at home, nt very little cost,
that will darken gray hair, and make
It soft and glossy. To a half pint of
water add 1 ounce of bay rum, a
small box of Ilnrbo Compound and
ounce of glycerine. These ingredients
can be bought at any drug store at
very little cost, or the druggist will
put It up for you. Apply to the hair
twice a week until the desired shade
is obtained. This will make a pray
hatred person look twenty years
vounger. It does not color the scalp,
is not sticky or greasy and docs not
rub off." Advt.
