Lie It's Grandmother's Recipe to Restore Color, Gloss and Thickness. Hair that loses its color and lusier, or when it fades, turns gray, dull and lifeless, is caused by a lack of sulphur in the hair. Our grandmother made up a mixture of Sage Tea and Sulpnur to keep her locks dark and beautiful, and thousands of women and men who aiue that even color, that beautiful ! dark shade of hair which is so attrac tive, use only this old-time recipe. Nowadays we get this famous mix ture ny asking at any drug store lor a . cnt bottle of "W'yeth's Sage and .Sulphur Compound," h!ch dai kens the . hair so nnturally. so evenly, that no i body can ios3ibly tell it has been ap ' plied. Besides, it takes off dandruff, stops scalp itching, and falling lialr. You Just dampen a sponge or soft brush w'th it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time. By morning the gray hair disappears; but what delights tho ladles witii Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur is that, besides beautifully darkening the hair after a few applications. It also brings back the gloss and luster and gives it an appearance of abundance. Advt. Principal Olllco: Phone Main 4270 Corner 12th and F Sts. N. W. COAL Private Branch Exchange inaffJ!
