.Miss Alice Balmer, 133 s. 3rd St..
Reading, Pa., knows that there is noth
ing so good for hair mil scalp trouble
as Parisian Sage. On June 8, 1910,
she wrote: "1 am using I'ari ian Sage
two or three times a week and it Is
certainly line. It keeps my scalp nice
ami clean and it cured my dandruff. 1
have no dandruff now. It makes the
hair lustrous and luffy and keeps it
from tailing out."
