Dr. Sabourad of the Pasteur Institute, Paris, France, inoc
ulated la rabbit vith human dandruff germs, and "in between
ave and six weeks," says the official report of the Pasteur
Institute, "the rabbit was completely denuded, in fact it had
become entirely bald." "
This experiment proves that dandruff is a contagious dis
ease due to the presence of a microbic growth in the sebac-'
eous giand3 of the scalp.,- It also proves that unless the for
mation of dandruff is stopped by destroying the dandruff
germ that it will lead to falling hair and incurable baldness.
Is the original remedy that'ldlls the dandruff germ, and
its success in the treatment of dandruff, itching scalp and
falling hair is oft times little ;short of marvelous. Send for
