with the bet of soaps. You can make the hair and scalp temporarily clean in this way but the germ
or growth, which is responsible for the accumulation we call dandruff. Is still there.
It is this dandruff producing germ that makes the hair so harsh, dull, uneven and causes it to
come out. Newbro's Herpicide kills this germ and keeps the hair and scalp sweet, clean and healthy.
Nature asserts herself. The heir grows naturally, becomes bright, snappy and full of life.

It leaves the bair smooth, glossy and easy to do up and the odor Is delicate and .pleasing. One of the

Certain Kinds of Bonds
Are the Only Securities Accepted
By the U. S. Government
. For the Funds of Its
Postal Savings Banks
YOU want to loan $500 or more, at 5
or 5 interest then be as careful
as the Government is in what security
you loan money on and accept only
the security that the government accepts.
We will sell you one $500 bond, or one $1000
bond or any amount you wish of these securities.
These bonds are pledges of the public and private
property, the integrity, and the taxes of a city or
town is that sufficient security for your money?
The interest and principal are both paid by a
Tax levied against all real estate and all personal
property in the city.
These Municipal Bonds
Pay S and 55 per cent
(Interest Paid Every Six Months)
And they can be sold at a moment's notice, for they meet '
the requirements of the U. S. Government as security for ,
the deposits of its Postal Savings Banks, and that makes them
as transferable as gold dollars.
You want further details about these bonds and you shall
have them at once.
To those who have given little attention to "what is a bond"
or to "why the Government so strictly confines itself to
certain kinds of bonds as securities for its Postal Banks,"
we offer our Gift Booklet.
This book is not written in technical bond language it is '
just plain newspaper English, written for everybody, from

We especially recommend these bonds to those men and
