lecture people asked leave to substitute.
This the local people declined, and later
cancelled the entire course, naturally
thinking that this same thing might
occur with any other number they have
been promised. It is understood that
they will try another lecture course

IT GROWS HAIR.
Here Arc Facts We Want You to
Prove at Our Risk.
Marvelous as it may seem, Rexall "03"
Hair Tonic has grown hair on heads that
were once bald. Of course, in none of
these cases were the hair roots dead,
nor had the scalp taken on a glazed,
Rexall "93" Hair Tonic acts scien
tifically, destroying the germs which are
usually responsible for baldness. It
penetrates to the roots of the hair, stim
ulating and nourishing them. It is a
most pleasant toilet necessity, is deli
cately perfumed, and will not gum or
permanently stain the hair.
We want you to get a bottle of Rexall
"93" Hair Tonic and use it as directed.
If it does not relieve scalp irritation,
remove dandruff, prevent the hair from
falling out and promote an increased
growth of hair, and in every way give
entire satisfaction, simply come back
and tell us, and without question or for

stand the pace and had broken open
for half its length. When asked what
made him limp Uncle Andy said he
sprained his ankle while working in the
corn field the day before, bnt we have a
notion he did it while trying to pry one of
those sweet potatoes out of the ground.
