e young are as liable to dandruff as their elders. Ac
ii your child to the use of Newbro's Herpicide and
you will never have a bald headed son nor a daughter wear
ing false hair 1
Herpicide will keep the hair and scalp sweet and clean,
kills the dandruff germ and stops that terrible Itching which
causes the child to scratch and dig the head. The Herpi
cide hab't is a habit of cleanliness.
A Thick Crust of Dandruff Nothing Would Remove
"I used one bottle of Herpicide on my daugh
ter's head and am charmed with the result. She
always had a thick crust of dandruff which nothing
would remove. I shampooed her head once a week
with your soap and rubbed her scalp and hair with
Herpicide. The crust has disappeared and what
little dandruff remains will be destroyed by an
other bottle. I take pleasure in recommending
Newbro's Herpicide to my friends as a great scalp
remedy and hair grower. I will always use Her
picide." MRS. FRANK T. MORGAN.
Charleston, S. C. June 3, 19.09. 162 Broad St.
The "young readily form habits and the Herpicide habit
is a most commendable one. It stands for personal cleanli
ness and assures a healthy, luxuriant growth of hair at the
age when beautiful hair is most appreciated.

and matters reached a climax when he
accused a friend of stealing $14vot his
money. A fight was brewing when
Officer Kearney approached, and with
the assistance of an interpreter he
learned the trouble. The officer patch"

the two men on their way. Later, how

broken out in the $500,000 warehouse

Omaha, which did considerable dam

the way. Is absolutely fireproof, being
constructed of concrete reinforced
with eteel, was not damaged to amount
to anything. The blaze broke out In
the floor where the stock buggies were
stored and the stock was practically a
total loss, but no other damage was
done. . On account of the construction
of the building, the firemen ware able
to confine the blaxe to the one floor.
