A HE MICROBES IN YOUB SCALP?
It Has Been Proved That Microbes
Profesor Unna of Hamburg, Ger
many, and Dr. Sabourand, the lead
ing French dermatologist, discovered
that a microbe causes baldness. Their
theory has time and again been am
ply verified through research exper
iments carried on under the observa
tion of eminent scientists. This mi
crobe lodges in the Sebum, which
is the natural hair oil, and when
permitted to flourish it destroys the
hair follicles and in time the pores
entirely close, and the scalp gradu
ally takes on a shiny appearance.
When this happens there is no hope
of the growth of hair being revived.
We have a remedy which will, we
honestly believe, remove dandruff,
exterminate the microbe, promote
good circulation in th scalp and
around the hair roots, and overcome
baldness, so long as there is any life
in the hair roots.
We back up this statement with
our own personal guarantee that
this remedy called Rexall "9.3" Hair
Tonic will be supplied free of all
cost to the user if it fails to do as we
It will frequently help to restore
gray and faded hair to its original
color, providing loss of color has
been caused by disease yet it is in
no sense a dye. Rexall "93" Hair
Tonic accomplishes these results by
aiding in making every hair root,
follicle, and pigment gland strong
and active, and by stimulating a
natural flow of coloring pigment
throughout the hair cells.
We exact no obligations or prom
ises—we simply ask you to give Rex
all "93" Hair Tonic a thorough trial
and if not satisfied tell us and we
will refund the money you paid us
for it. Two sizes, prices 50 cents
