ITS EITHER DANDRUFf OR HAIR You Can!t Have Both For Long Look at your coat collar. If it shows evidence of dandruff you can take it as a sure sign' of coming baldness unless you take steps to prevent it. When the hair threatens to leave you can't afford to take any chances. Go to O'Donnell's Drug Store, 904 F street, and ask for a Soc bottle of Speiser's Scalp Tonic. Use it according to directions and in a reasonable time dandruff, falling hair and irritations of the scalp will disap pear, and the growth of the hair will be promoted. Mr. O'Don nell is so certain of the merits of Speiser's Scalp Tonic that he'll gladly refund your money if it fails. Avoid preparations containing alkalis (the presence of alkali is made known by the foaming of the liquid) or cocoaruat oil. Be on the safe side use Speiser's Scalp Tonic only. Advt.
