SAGE TEA DARKENS

old recipe which can be depended up
on to restore natural color and beau
ty to the hair and ia splendid for
dandruff, dry, feverish, Itchy scalp
and fading hair.
A well known downtown druggist
says it .darkens the hair so natural
ly and evenly that nobody can tell
lt bas been applied. You simply
dampen a sponge or soft brush with
it and draw this through your hair,
taking one strand at a time. By
morning the gray bair disappears,
and after another application or two,
it becomes beautifully dark, glossy,
soft and abundant.
