Is Olive Oil and It Works Wonders
To-Day as it Did for the Beauty
Loving Greeks.
Most everything needs to he oiled.
Machinery does and so does leather as
ail know. Even our furniture and
shoes do. The natural oil in them
gradually drys out and must he replaced.
it Is the same with the skin. If our
skin Is kept well oiled It will not blister,
chap, burn, crack, or wrinkle easily.
Soap is our chief lubricant, but
there Is a better, as the ancient beauty
loving Greeks knew. It is pure olive
Just rub it in ? that's all. It's no
bother. There are no complicated directions.
Watch how quickly the
skin drinks it up! Poor skin, it was
dry and thirsty. But give the skin
pure olive oil Just as you would only
drink pure water. The best is Berl
Olive Oil and it is to be had In M pint
bottles at 35c; pints at 65c and one
| gallon at $3.50 at Crane's drug store.

soda water fountain seems to be.
We dispense more real, refreshing,
