CAUSE OF FALLING HAIR.
Dandruff. Which Is a Germ Disease
Kill the Germ.
Falling hair is caused by dandruff,
which is a germ disease. The germ, in
burrowing into the root of the hair,
where it destroys the vitality of th
hair, causing the hair to fall out, digs
up the cuticle in little scales, called
dandruff or scurf. You can't stop the
falling hair without curing the dan
druff, and you can't cure the dandruff
without killing the dandruff germ.
"Destroy the cause, you remove the
effect." Newbro's Ilerpicide is thu
only hair preparation that kills the
dandruff germ. Ilerpicide is also a de
lightful hair dressing. Sold by lead
ing druggists. Send 10 cents in stamps
for sample to the Ilerpicide company,
Detroit, Mich. Two sizes, 50 cents and
$1. T. II. Thomas, special agent.
Health in the Canal Zone.
The high wages paid make it a
mighty temptation to our young arti
sans to join the force of skilled work
men needed to construct the Panama
canal. Many are restrained however
by the fear of fevers and malaria, it
is the knowing ones those who have
used Electric Hitters, who go there
without this fear, well knowing they
are safe from malarious influence with
Electric Bitters on hand. Cures blood
poison too, biliousness, weakness an 1
all stomach, liver and kidney troubles.
