How Old are You?
Tou need not anewer tho question, mndam,
for in your oaae age ia not counted by years. It
will always b true that "a woman ia as old
as she looks." Nothing sets the seal of age
so deeply upon woman'o beauty aa gray hair.
It is natural, therefore, that every woman is
anxious to preserve her hair in all its original
abundance and beauty; or, that being darned
the crowning gift of beautiful hair, she longs
to possess it. Nothing is easier than to attain
to this gift or to preserve it, if already
possessed. Ayer's Hair Vigor restores gray
