Ayer's Hair Vigor, new im
proved formula, will certainly
stOD falling of the hair. Indeed,
we believe it will always do this
unless there is some disturb
ance of the general health.
Then, a constitutional medicine
may be necessary. Consult

The reason why Ayer's Hair Vigor stops
JatlinR hair is because it first destroys the
cerma which cause this trouble. Aftct
mis i3 done, nature soon brings about a
lull recovery, restoring the hair and
scalp to a perfectly healthy condition.
