V, OMAN'S HAIR
REACHE; TO KNEES
A Year Ago Was Threatened With
Baldness. Tells How She Made
Her Hair t.run.
Mrs. Esther Emerv, now 'visiting
friends In tho city, Is the fortunate pos
sessor of marvelously beuutlful hair,
which, when loosed from Its colls, fulls
to her knees. Moreover, It Is of soft,
silky and Huffy texture, und In color
a glorloun glossy gold. Yet Just one
year ugo she was threatened with bald
ness. I'ruod to tell how she had ob
tained tills wondeiful growth In so
short a time, she said: "Hud anyone
told me such marveloUH results could
be accomplished so quickly, I positively
would not have hellevfd It. Twelve
months ago mv hair, which then reached
barely to my shoulders, was falling out
at an alarming ruto and growing vory
thin, actually exposing the bald scalp
In sevurul spots. It was dull and life
less In color, turning grey In patches,
and very drv und brittle, Mv head was
rovured with dandruff and Itched like
mud all the time. I tried fullv a dozen
different hair tonics but they wero all
tho same und nutcr did mn u bit of
good. One iliiv I chanced to read In my
homo paper of a simple homo prescrip
tion to make tho hair grow that was
recommended bv a well known phvsl
clan. It said that bv inking ordinary
Lavona de Cbmnosce and mixing It with
Ilav Rum and Menthol Crystals and ap
plying to the sculp each night with the
linger tips that new hair would grow
verv rapidly. I decided to trv It, and 1
had mv druggist mix 2 oz, of tho I.a
vona de Composee with 8 oz. of Hay
Rum and M dr. of Menthol Crystals,
und slatted to use It. My. how quickly
mv hair did grow. Klrst the hair stop
ped falling, the Itching ceased: and lha
dandruff disappeared. Then tiny Utile
hairs appeared all over mv scalp. Those
grew and grew as though nothing
would ever top them. They are grow'
Ing yet and while, of course. I have
used 'the treatment steadily and expect
to continue it. at least until mv hair
reaches the floor. I might havo stopped
nnd been perfectly satisfied at tho end
of three months. I tlilnK thut any wom
an can get long, thick, beautiful hair
bv using this prescription us, I havo
recommended It to seeral friends and
nil are delighted with tho result. The
prescription Is verv Inexpensive, und
anv druggist can llll It.
Those who use It should be caieful
not to get it on the face or where the
hair Is not desired.
