BY P. B.
Once upon a time there was a Chap
py who labored under the Delusion
that he was a Regular' Heart Smasher.
His Face resembled the handsome Ex
terior of a Chapped Rutabago and was
partially obscured from view by a vast
wealth of Bulbous Nose, kissed by the
Carmine Lips of Old King Alcohol, but
in his estimation, a Show Down would
make John Drew look like the "Before-
Taking'' Likeness of a Patent Root
After sweeping the Saw Dust from
the Floor and placing the Bologna
Sausages in the Vault for the night, he
would don his Other Suit, grab a Bean
Sandwich at the Lunch Wagon, and
then Pose before the Leading Hotel
with a Drooping Tooth Pick suspended
from his Mug. At such times he was
wont to regale his Companions with
the Memoirs of the preceding night's
gay festivities with the Little Blonde,
Second from the End on the Right
Hand Side, in the Bathing Girls' Scene.
She did not Look Good to him, but she
had given expression to a Hectic De
sire for his Companionship, and his
being a Magnanimous Spirit, be had
grudgingly acquiesced to the extent of
about $15 worth of Wine Supper, plus
a Taxi Ride. .But in reality he had
been given the "Go-By" by the Scandi
navian Dish .Washer at the Gem Res
taurant, and after waiting on the Cor
ner for an hour and a half, had squan
dered Jive cents at the Jitney Show
and trudged wearily homeward with
the Cigar Clerk and an Overwhelming
Sense of Loss.
Each Pay Night upon receiving his
little $7.50. he would Inflict Himself
upon the Vienna Cafe, where, after
Sizing Up every one in the Place, he
would ensconce himself at a Table
with a 'Bunch of Regular Devils who
smoked Cigarets, Drank Beer and
were terribly wicked. Then would en
sue Business of Passing Cute Remarks
about the Assembled Skirts, and vain
Endeavors to impress upon them the
fact that he was the Original Carter de
Haven with the Flossy Front and the
Ready Coin. While he was flattering
himself that the Gals were seized with
an overwhelming desire to Fly to his
Arms, they were in reality conjectur
ing as to Just why the Head Waiter
had not Spotted the Live Stock when
it entered the Car and Assigned it to
the Servants' -Quarters.
One evening n mild looking Broker
and Wife from New York Breezed into
the place to Soak Up a few Pints. As
they passed the Nursery Section, Little
Chauncey Detached a Facetious Re
mark and launched It in the direction
of Friend Wife. Two hours later the
Physician at the Hospital Informed the
waiting Undertaker that his services
would not be required after All, and
' If you would take more care of your hair you
have no idea how much it would improve your
look3. With flakes of dandruff showing at the part
ing and the hair itself thin, scraggly, dull and luster
less, you are not making the most of nature's gifts.
The delightful, sanitary hair-dressing, NEWBRO'S HERPICIDE, is a boon to anyone
with hair trouble. Its intelligent use removes dandruff and makes the scalp clean and
healthy. The hair becomes naturally smooth and glossy, light and fluffy. HERPICIDE,
by destroying the dandruff and making the hair and scalp sweet and clean permits the
hair to grow. The subtle and exquisite odor of NEWBRO'S HERPICIDE is always
pleasing and HERPICIDE itself is so clean and pure that it appeals to all.
NEWBRO'S HERPICIDE is a toilet necessity which no girl or woman with a
regard for personal neatness and attractiveness can afford to be without. Try
it once and you will be surprised at the improvement noticeable m the ap
pearance of your hair. HERPICIDE stops itching almost at once.
