GETTING GRAY? USE SAGE TEA TO
RESTORE NATURAL COLOR OF HAIR
Says Sage and Sulphur Dark
ens Hair Beautifully and
Hair that loses its color and lustre,
or when it fades, turns gray, dull and
Ilfeleas la caused by a lack of sulphur
in the hair, says a well known local
pharmacist. Our grandmother made
up a mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur
to keep her locks dark and beautiful
and even today this tinpie prepara
tion has no equal. Millions of women
and men too, who value that even
color, that beautiful dark shade of
hair which is so attractive use only
Sage Tea and Sulphur.
Nowadays we are not bothered with
the task of gathering the sage leaves
and the muesy mixing at home. Sim
ply ask at any drug store for a 60
cent bottle of the ready to use prepa
ration called "Wyeth's Sage and Sul
phur Hair Remedy." Customers like
this best because it darkens so nat
urally; so evenly that nobody can pos
sibly tell it has been applied. Be
sides, it contains ingredients which
take off dandruff, stop scalp itching
aad falling hair. No, it isn't a dye or
even like it You just dampen a
sponge or soft brush with "Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur' and draw it
through your hair, taking one small
strand at a time. By morning the
gray hair disappears; after another
application or two it is restored to
its natural color.
What delights the ladies with Wy
eth's Sage and Sulphur is that besides
beautifully darkening the hair they
say it brings back the gloss and lustre
and gives it an appearance of abun

I am now deeply in love with him and
believe I could win his affections In

one of them. How can I win the at

I do not think you need to be deeply
worried, young lady, when you have
so many suitors. It seems to me that
you don't know your own mind or
heart very well. If you had decided
to accept one of your old suitors, you
must have thought yourself In love
with him. You think yourself in love
with the new man in the same way. I
have an idea that your chief wish is to
add his scalp to your collection annd
that it's selflove that is troubling you.
If the young man is going to be j
attracted by you. he will manage to i
let you know that he likes you. You
can't attract him by showing that you
have succumbed to his fascination.
Better let well enough alone and, if
you feel that you must marry, take
the best that is offered you.

of 15 years old. What would you'
advise me to do? I can earn $6 a

Should I take this position, or take ud

I think the business course will do
more good in the long run, my dear.
If your parents find it difficult to pay
ior tne Dusmess course, you might
earn the money during the summer by
playing in the picture show, provided
it is a thoroughly respectable show.
I would advise that one of your fam
