D. H. Smith, of Hodgenville, will
not enter the August primary

States Senator. His home pa
per, the Herald, does not make
that announcement and the Eliza
bethtown News, a neighbor, says
it is for Mr. Smith. Hence we
take it that the Larue county
statesman has not withdrawn
from the fight. Dave is not the
handsomest man in the world,
but is loss in good looks is made
up with ability. This paper is in
clined to another candidate, but it

Is it the Hair or the Face that makes the Woman?
If you think it is tho face take another look at the
two heads pictured here. One shows a girl which
the most critical would pronounce beautiful.
While her features are fairly perfect her greatest
charm lies in a mass of fine lustrous hair. The op
posite picture is identical as to features and other

her govd looks in exact proportion as she loses her

This annoying trouble to which everyone is more or less exposed is due to the working of an in
visible growth or microbe called the Dandruff Germ. ..,,.., , ,
It robs the hair of the snap and luster of health, burrows down into the follicle and eventually
loosens the hair, allowing it to fall out.
Ncwbro's Herpicide applied regularly and intelligently kill? this germ, keeps the Ecalp clean and
Falling hair is thus prevented and, if the hair follicles have not become atrophied, a new growth
of hair may be anticipated. . ....
The life and luster of Herpicide hair 13 beautlf ul.to see, 13 unmistakable.
An abtfftdance of fluffy, glittering hair ia woman's chiefeat beauty and to permit its needless de
struction is unpardonable.
