YOUR GRAY HAIRS
Harmless Remedy, Made
from Garden Sage, Restores
.Color to Gray Hair.
r . .
A feeling of sadness accompanies the
discovery of the first gray hairs which
unfortunately are looked upon as heralds
of advancing age. Gray hair, however
handsome it may be, makes a person
look old. We aU know the advantages
of being young. Aside from the good
impression a youthful appearance makes
on others, simply knowing that you are
"looking fit" gives one courage to
undertake and accomplish things. So
why suffer the handicap of looking old
on account of gray hairs, when a simple
remedy will give your hair youthful
color and beauty in a few days' time?
Most people know that common gar
den sage acts as a color restorer and
scalp tonic as welL Our grandmothers
used a "Sage Tea" for keeping their
hair dark, soft and luxuriant. In
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy
we have an ideal preparation of Sage,
combined with Sulphur and other valua
ble remedies for dandruff, itching scalp
and thin, weak hair that is split at the
ends or constantly coming out. A few
applications of this valuable remedy
will brirg back ths color, and in a short
time it will remove every trace cf dan

and aoDearanca of the hair.

JOBS TO BE FOUND FOR
Chicago, Feb. 22. Insurance against
loss of employment may be a luxury
enjoyed by Chicago workers as a re
sult of a commission appointed by
Mayor Harrison. Should such a plan
go into effect the 125,000 men now
walking the streets of Chicago Jobless
and hungry, would not be compelled
to ask charity or be driven to crime.
They would be paid dividends on their
job insurance policies until they could
be transported to a section of the
country where work was more plenti
ful. Mayor Harrison drew up the com
mission plans and selected the men
who are to work out the problems of
the unemployed within a few hours
after reading of conditions in the city
in The Record-Herald Monday morn
ing. Impressed by the seriousness of
the situation, as described in this ar
ticle, he completed the list of men
who are specialists in the line of in
vestigation that will come under the
commission's scrutiny and sent it to
the city council in the evening. The
commission is composed of:
Charles R. Crane, chairman; C.
R Henderson, secretary; Alderman
F. P. DanUch, Alderman J. B.
Bowler, Alderman J. H. Lawley,
Alderman W. F. Schultz, Alderman
Charles Twigg, John A. Cervenka,
Louis F. Post, Graham Taylor, Mal

Rev. R. A. White, H. G. Adair, Oscar
G. Mayer, Frederic A. Delano, Edward
Tllden. John J. Sonsteby, James H.
Bowman, O. G. Finkelstein, E. G.
Brown, W. H. Cruden.
The necessity for such a commission
was called to the attention of the city
council two weeks ago. After a dis
cussion of the situation it was agreed
that the mayor should be authorized
to appoint the investigating body.
As the commission has not held its
first meeting the members were una
ble to outline their work, except in
the most general way. It Is expected,
however, that at least six months will
be consumed in carrying out its pur-

powder eventually finds It clogs the
pores In her face, causing wrinkles
and other age-marks. Leave it alone
if you will be beautiful. Dissolve
four ounces of spurmax In half pint
witch hazel (or hot water) then add
two teaspoonfuls of glycerine. This is
the finest skln-whltener and beautl-

that shiny, oily or sallow look is un
equaled. I find it extremely good
for removing and preventing freck

Miss Essie: Even though your
hair is thin, dull, straggly, split and
broken through improper shampoo

spoonful of canthrox dissolved in a
cup of hot water. Rinse in clear
water and the hair will dry quickly
and be ever so soft and nice. The
alkali In soap and most prepared
shampoos ruins the hair by making it
streaky, dull and brittle. Nothing is
so cleansing as canthrox. When used
for shampooing it removes all dandruff,
