A GR EATDISC OVER Y
Certain Ingredients That Really
Promote Hair Growth When
Hesorcin is one of the most ef
fective germ destroyers ever dis
covered by science, and in con
neclion with Beta Napthol, which
is both germicidal and antiseptic,
a combination is formed which de
stroys the germs which rob the
hair of its natural nourishment,
and also creates a clean, healthy
condition of the scalp, which pre
vents the development or new
Pilocarpin, although not a col
oring matter or dye, is a wel
known ingredient for restoring the
hair to its natural color, when the
loss of hair has been caused by
disease of the scalp.
These ingredients in proper
combination, with alcohol added
as a stimulant and for its well
defined nourishing properties
perfect perhaps the most effective
remedy that is known for scalp
and hair troubles.
e have a remedy which is
cnielly composed or these in
gredients, in combination with
other extremely invaluable medi
cinal agents. We guarantee it to
positively cure dandruff and to
grow hair, even though the scalp
in spots is bare of hair. If there
is any vitality left in the roots, it
will positively cure baldness, or
we will refund your money. If
the scalp has a glazed, shiny ap
pearance, it's an indication that
baldness is permanent, but in
other instances we believe bald
ness is curable.
We want everyone troubled with
scalp disease or loss of hair to try
Rexall Hair Tonic. If it does
not cure dandruff and grow hair
to the satisfaction of the user, wo
will without question or quibble
return every cent paid us for it.
We print this guarantee on every
bottle. It has effected a positive
cure in JKt per cent of cases where
put to a practical test.
Ilexall ")3" Hair Tonic is en-
lireiy unlike, and we IIiinK, in
every particular, Itettcr than any
thing else we know of for the pur
pose for which it, is prescribed.
We urge vou to try this prepara
tion at our entire risk. Certain
ly we know of no better guarantee
to give you. Remember, you can

In a two-page article on the
subject of roads in the various
stales, the November Motorist
says: "The Omaha-Kansas City

been very highly spoken of and
has drawn large audiences wher
ever given. A charge of 50 cents
for any seat in the house will lie
made for tickets of admission.
The evening performance will be
preceded by an open air band
concert in front of the opera
The entertainment should be
encouraged and patronized by
every citizen interested in the
growth and advancement of our
city. The opera house should be
packed from pit to dome with
boosters for the Omaha-Kansas

would please Mr. Pollock more
than to have a fine showing made
