you think a man or woman like a
man who boasts of his .success

him Also they think he is a
liar and he usually is he is up
set with inferiority feelings .and
fears that he is not popular with
the ladies The man who really
has a lot of women .friends ..and
admirers is usually the last one to
boast about it.. .He knows he is
popular, takes it as a matter of
course, and does not .give .much
thought to boasting about it.. .Na
turally he feels some pride in his
ability to win the .admiration of
the fair sex, but he does not go
about bragging of hs feminine con

among women ...
Many doctors recommend regular use
of douches as a precautionary meas
ure for women who want to be clean,
dainty-for women troubled by offend
ing odor or discharge.
Some products may be harmful to
delicate tissues. But not Lydia E.
Pinkham’s Sanative Wash! Plnkham's
Sanative Wash is gaining great favor
because it’s NOT a harmful germicide.
Instead-it's a mighty effective “bac
teriostatic” (the modern trend). It not
only discourages bacterial growth and
infection but thoroughly cleanses, deo
dorizes. Very soothing—relieves minor
irritations and discharge and has a
tonic effect on delicate membranes.
Inexpensive! All druggists.

although more than thirty-five !
years on the market, is still the

for this is because it not only
serves as a scalp oil, but it gives

natural gloss that is the delight
of every woman.
