"Travelling as I do continuously, 1 have been troubled
a great deal with dandruff and falling hair, and until I
tried Ilerpicide I never found a remedy that was satisfac
tory. "Ilerpieide is a delightful preparation that fulfills tho
claims made for it, and no lady's toilet is complete without
it. I highly recommend it to my friends."
(Signed) ANNIE OAKLEY.
It is certainly significant that Miss Oakley, the celebrated rifle shot and theatrical
star, who has traveled so extensively abroad, should choose Newbro's Ilerpicide as the
most efficacious toilet remedy for the scalp. No one . will doubt her opportunity to
chofise the best and those who have seen the natty and winsome Miss Oakley, will not
doubt her power of discrimination in matters of this sort.
Newbro's Ilerpicide is a scientific germicide and prophylactic for the hair and sculp,
it destroys the germ or microbe that causes dandruff, itching scalp and falling hair, af
ter which the hair will grow as nature intended, except in cases of incurable baldness.
lOxtraordinary results sometimes follow the continued use of Newbro's Ilerpicide.
If your hair is dull, brittle or lusterless. don't wait until it begins to fall, but save
and beautify it with Newbro's Ilerpicide. In addition to its wonderful medicinal qual
ities, Newbro's Ilerpicide is the daintiest and most delightful refreshing hair dressing
available. The first application proves its goodness. Try it.
Ilerpicide contains no grease, it will not stain or dye.

Mrs. P., Davenport. Rouge is a del
icate question even to be mentioned
in well regulated beauty hints. The
secret of applying rouge is, don't be
detected; and this can be accomplished
by using Princess rouge, which is in
cake form, and gives the semblance of
natural tint if applied after powder.
Put it on lightly, so that even your
jealous neighbor will have to look
twice to see whether the roses are

other don't: Blend it on carefully, and
do not have a set spot for applying it.
