Have you dandruff? Then you have
a contagious parasitic disease, unpleas

eventually lead to baldness. To cure
it, you must destroy the parasite that
eats at the root of the hair. The only
preparation for destroying these germs
is Newbro's Herpicide. Charles Klein
of Laramie, Wyo., says: , "Herpicide
allayed the itching, cured the dandruff
and stopped my hair's falling out, and
