BOTH CHILDREN CURED
BY FAMOUS REMEDIES
'Tor several years mv husband was
missionary in the Southwest, and ws
were living on the edge of the desert at
an elevation of nearly Ave thousand
feet. Every one in that high and dry
atmosphere has more or lees trouble
with dandruff and my daughter's scalp
became so encrusted with it that I was
alarmed for fear she would lose all her
hair, which was very heavy. After
spending between five and six dollars
for various remedies, in desperation I
bought a cake of Cuticura ciosp and A
box of Cuticura Ointment. After rub
bing the Cuticura Ointment thoroughly
into the roots of the hair. I gently
combed the crust of dandruff free from
the scalp, and then gsvs her head a
thorough shampoo with the Cuticura
ftoap. This left the scalp beautifully
clean and free from dandruff, and after
the hair was dry, I sgain rubbed the
Cuticura Ointment, this time sparingly,
Into the roots, and I id happy to say
that the Cuticura Remedies were a
complete success. My troubles with
dandruff were over, although for a long
time afterward I used the Cuticura
Ointment as at first, after shampooing,
which kept the scalp and routs of the
hair moist. I have used successfully
the Cuticura Remedies for so-called
'milk-crust,' on baby's head, and have
never found anything to equal them.
