Few Folks Have
Gray Hair Now
Well-known local druggist says
everybody is using old-time recipe
of Sage Tea and Sulphur.
Hair that losea its color and luster, or
when It fades, turns gray, dull and life
leas. Is caused by a lack of sulphur In
the hair. Our grandmother made up a
mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur to
keep her locks dark and beautiful, and
thousands of women and men who value
that even color, that beautiful dark
shade of hair which is so attractive, use
only this old-time recipe.
Nowadays we get this famous mixture
by asking at any drug store for a lb-
cent bottle of "Wyeth'a Sage and Sul
phur Compound," which darkens tha
hair so naturally, so evenly, that nobody
can possibly tell It haa been applied.
Besides. It takea off dandruff, stops
scalp Itching and falling hair. You Just
dampen a sponge or soft brush with It
and draw this through your hair, taking
one small strand at a time. By morn
Ing the gray bair disappears; but what
delights the ladlea with Wyeth'a Sage
and Sulphur la that, besides beautifully
darkening the hair after a few applica
tions. It also brings back the' gloss and
luster and gives It an appearance of
