For 25 cents you can save your hair. In less than ten minutes you can double its beauty. Your hair be comes light, wavy, fluffy, abundant and appears as soft, lustrous and charming as a young girl's after applying some Danderine. Also try this—moisten a cloth with a little Danderine and carefully draw it through your hair, taking one small strand at a time. This will cleanse the hair of dust, dirt or excessive oil, and in just a few moments you have doubled the beauty of your hair. A delightful surprise- awaits those whose lialr has been neglected or is scraggy, faded, dry, brittle or thin. Besides beautifying the hair, Danderine dissolves every particle of dandruff cleanses, purifies and invig orates the scalp, forever stopping itching and falling hair, but what will please you most will be after a few week's use, when you see new hair —fine and downy at first—yes—but really new hair growing all over the scalp. If you care for pretty, soft hair, and lots of it, surely get a 25 cent bottle of Knowlton's Danderine from any drag store or toilet coun ter and just try it. Charles T. Schramm, deceased.
