SlCf IH TURNS GRAY HAIR DARK It's Grandmother's Recipe to Bring Color, Lustre and Thickness to Hair When Faded, Streaked or Gray That beautiful, even shade of dark, glossy hair can only be had by brewing a mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur. Your hair is your charm. It makes or mars the face. When it fades, turns gray, streaked and looks dry, wispy and s " a ggy. just an application or two of Sage and Sulphur enhances its appear ance a hundredfold. Don't bother to prepare the tonic; you can get from any drug store a 50- cent bottle of "Wyeth's Sage and Sul phur Compound," ready to use. This can always be depended upon to bring back the natural color, thickness and lustre of your hair and remove dandruff, stop scalp itching and falling hair. Everybody uses "Wyeth's" Sage and Sulphur because it darkens so naturally and evenly that nobody can tell it has been applied. You simply dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through the hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning the gray hair has disappeared, and after another application it becomes beautifully dark and appears glossy, lustrous and übun dant.—Adv.

Such things do open up the swollen nos trils and clear the head temporarily, besides stopping for a while the dis gusting blowing, hawking, spitting and choking, but they never cure. To drive out Catarrh for gopd you have got to get dow» to its real cause. Catarrh is a germ disease. The air is always full of catarrh germs thrown off by one person and absorbed by another and when the system does fail to throw off such germs they find permanent lodgement in the nose, throat and head and multiply rapidly. The germs of catarrh can best be de stroyed by inhaling the pure .medicated air of Hyomei (pronounced High-o-me). This splendid and powerful combination of oil of Eucalyptus with other healing agents has a wonderful germicidal ac tion. You breathe its air into your nose, throat and lungs by means of a small hard rubber inhaler which H. C. Kennedy and other leading druggists here in Harrisburg and vicinity supply with every treatment. This medicated air is certain- death to the germs of Catarrh and drives them completely oat of your systen\ and when the germs are destroyed the catarrh with all its dis agreeable symptoms will stop. Even two or three minutes use will give re freshing relief, while, if you will uae it two or three times a day for a few weeks it will completely banish catarrh and every symptom of catanrh. As Hy omei is peasant to breathe and is al ways sold by druggists everywhere with a positive guarantee of successful results or "money back, surely no.
