Awful Suffering of Little Boy
from an Itching Humour
Not One Square Inch of Skin on
His Whole Body Unaffected
My little son, a boy of five, broke
out with an itching rah. Three doc
tors prescribed for him, but he kept
getting worse until we couM not dress
him any more. They finally advised
me to try a certain medical college,
but its treatment did no good. At the
time I was induced to try Cuticura
he was so bad that I had to cut his
hair off and put the Cuticura Oint
ment on him on bandages, us it was
impossible to touch him with the bare
hand. There was not one square inch
of skin on hit whole body that was
not sheeted, lie was one mass of orcs.
The bandages used to stick to his skin
and in removing them it ust-d to take
the skin off with them, and the screams
from the poor child were heart-break,
ing. 1 began to think that he would
never get well, but after the second
application of Cuticura Ointment I
began to see signs of improvement,
and with the third and fourth appli
cations the sores commenced to dry
up. His skio peeled otf twenty times,
but it finally yielded to the treatment.
Now I can say that he is entirely
cured, and a stronger and healthier
boy you never saw than he is to-day."

yULL A HAIR FR0M Y0UR HEAD j(v
In these days when youth is the moving factor when man has made his mark at thirty-five and s dubbed a
"has been" at forty; when business houses pension the man we used to call middle aged, rather than allow his
lagging influence to intrude upon the modern commercial rush a bald head is a serious handicap.
In the social world it is equally bad for a man, while for a woman it is fatal.
Few people can afford a bald head. Even those who can those who are fixed socially, financially and matri
monially -have no wish to do so. But afford it or not, thousands of us are bald, either partially or wholly.
What caused baldness whether an inherited tendency; whether through undue mental effort, sickness, dandruff
or other scalp disease makes no difference. What we want is HAIR.
Millions of dollars have been spent in vain efforts to grow hair on bald heads. Other miUions have been spent
m an effort to restore faded gray hair to its natural shade, and still others to banish dandruff. And still dandruff
declined to disappear; hair refused to grow; lost tints of brown, blonde and auburn failed to return.
All this, however, is of the past. Failures have give place to success. A real hair tonic has at last been founa.
REXALL "93" HAIR TONIC is a positive cure for all hair and scalp troubles- It is not sticky or gummy, will
not thicken on hair, does not become rancid, has no disagreeable odor. It is clean, agreeable and pleasant to use.

Before placing Rexall 92n Hair
Tonic on the market we realized
that we had a formula of exceptional
value, and yet we determined to give
it a thorough trial before we offered
it as a Rexall preparation. We there
fore wrote to one hundred druggists
in as many cities, asking the name of
one customer who suffeted from a
disease of the hair and scalp. To
each of these customers we sent
three bottles of the hair tonic and
asked them to try it and report
The Result: Five reported no
answer, two reported adversely and
We therefore selected " NINETY
THREE" HAIR TONIC as the
name of this preparation, which ws
believe to be the best. Could any
other name be so significant of merit?
Any test have been more fair ? Any
results more encouraging I
