trous and beautiful as a young girl's
after a "Danderine hair cleanse." Just
a try this-moisten a cloth with a little
. Danderine and carefully draw it
t through- your hair, taking one small
strand at a time. This will cleanse
the hair of dust, dirt and excessive oil
and in just a few moments you have
doubled the beauty of your hair.
Besides beautifying the hair at once,
Danderin'e dissolves every particle of
dandruff; cleanses, purifies and invig
orates the scalp, forever stopping itch

But what will please you most will
be after a few weeks' use when you
will actually see new hair--fine and
downy at first--yes--but really new
hair--growing all over the scalp. If
youl care for pr'etty, soft hair and lots
