THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAL- THURSDAY EVENING, APRIL 15, 1920
9 s -to Joe Up to the present time it has been almost Impossible to get a face pow der to stay on the (ace longer than it takes to put it on. You powder your nose nicely, and the first gust of wind or the first puff of your handkerchief and away goes the powder, leaving your nose shiny and conspicuous, probably Just at the very moment when you would give anything to ap pear at your best. A specialist lias at last perfected a pure powder that really stays on; that stays on until you wash it off. It does not contain white lead or starchy rice powder to make it stay on. Thls Improved formula con tains a medicinal powder doctors pre scribe to Improve the complexion. In fact, this powder helps to prevent and reduce enlarged pores and irritations. It is also astringent, discouraging flab biness, crow's feet and wrinkles. This unusual power is called La-may (French, Poudre L'Ame). Because La-may is pure and because it stays on so well it is already used by over a million American women. All dealers carry the large sixty-cent box. and many dealers also carry the generous thirty-cent size. When you use this harmless powder and see how beauti fully it improves your complexion you will understand why La-may so quick ly became the most popular beauty powder sold in New York. We will give you five thousand dollars is you can buy a better face powder any where at any price. Herbert Hoy stone, 16 Bast 18th St., New York.
