himself in looking over the contents of
the three safes. In these were many
small boxes filled with gems of all

RING WORM AND DANDRUFF.
They Are Each Caused by a Pestifer
Ring worm and dandruff are some
what similar in 'their origin; each is
caused by a parasite. The germ that !
causes daudruiT digs to the root of the
hair, and saps its vitality, causing fall
ing hair, and. finally, baldness. With
out dandruff there would never be bald
ness, and to cure dandruff it is neces
sary to kill the germ. There has beci
no hair preparation that would do this,
until the discovery of Xewbro's Herpi
cide, which positively kills the dandruff
germ, allays itching instantly, and
makes hair -glossy and soft as silfc.
Take no substitute. There is. nothing
"just as good.". S?ld by leading drug
