Ample Time To Drain Waste Places
Before the Opening of the
On nearly every Louisiana farm
there is some land that is either not
used at all or is used in such a way
as to produce very little. On many
farms thera are patches of low ground
which cannot be tilled because they
are too wet. Usually when drained
these wet areas are the richest on
Just at present, when the cry of the
world is for food and more food, the
product of these idle acres is needed.
This is an excellent time to put them
into use. Small patches of wet land
can often be drain.ed at little ex

ing up of spsing work there will be
ample time to do the work. Ever

Save your hair! Make it
thick, wavy and beau- j
tiful-try this! C
Thin, brittle, colorless and scraggy
hair is mute evidence of a neglected
scalp;,of dandruff-that awful scurf.
There is nothing so destructive to a
the hair as dandruff. It robs the hair (
of its lustre, its strength and its very a
life; eventually producing a feverish- J
ness and itching of the scalp, which
if not remedied causes the hair roots r
to shrink, loosen and die- then the (
hair falls out fast. A little Dander- 1
ine tonight-now-any time-will
surely save your hair.
Get a small bottle of Knowlton's t
Danderine from any drug store or
toilet counter', and after the first ap
plication your hair will take on new c
life, lustre and luxuriance which is c
so beautiful. It will become wavy I
and fluffy and have the appearance
of abundance, an incomparable
gloss and softness; but what will
please you most will be after just 1
a few weeks' use when you will ac- i
tually see a lot of fine, downy hair r
