FOR YOUR HAIR.
Here Are Facts We Want You to
Prove at -Our Risk.
When the roots of the hair are en
tirely dead and the pores of the scalp
are gl,azed over, we do not believe that
anything can restore hair growth.
Rexall "93" Hair Tonic acts scienti
fically, destroying the germs! which'
are usually responsible for baldness.
It -penetrates to the roots of the hair,
stimulating and nourishing them. It
is a. most pleasant toilet necessity, is
delicateiy perfumed and will not gum
nor perm.ancily stain the hair.
We want you to get a bottle of Rex
all "93" Hair Tonic and use it as di
rected.. If it does not relieve scalp ir
ritation, remove ddndruff, prevent the;
hair from falling out and promote an
increased growth of hair and in every
way give entire satisfaction, s-imply
come back and tell us and without
question or formality we will, hand
back to you every penny yo'u paid us
We leid our endorsement to Rexall
"93" Hair Tonic and sell it on this
gaarantee, because we believe it is
the best 'hair tonic ever discovered.
It comes in- two sizes, prices 50 cents!
and $1.00. Remember you can obtain
it 'only at our store. Gilder & Weeks.1
