"Our .'onstltutlon provldee that when a

of a new charter In any event. i
"I see that some of the people who are j
apparently disgruntled with the result of ',

Ing for a charter convention. I wonder
if these people know that they are play

"If a new charter should be adopted,

there are users over 11,000 in all to

It Is the only Ught Six designed by

This Is a New Type
Bear that la mind. The Light tUx

"I positively hated to wash !
my hair until I got Lee's Liquid
Shampoo." An Omaha Lady.
Most every one has a dread of the ordinary shampoo;
of tbe time consumed and labor involved; of the stiff,
arbitrary condition of the hair afterward; of the un
pleasant feeling of soap left in the balr; the fear of
hurting the hair or of taking cold; the difficulty of ob
taining soft water, etc.
All of these troubles are overcome by use of Lee'a
Liquid Shampoo. A few ounces of soft water is best
for the "lather-up" but even that is not essential. A
man can take a shampoo while taking a bath and quicker
than he can shave. A woman ran shampoo in five
minutes, hair dry in ftfteen to thirty. The hair goes
rieht back to its old training. There Is no soap, grease.
dirt, or dandruff left behind. There is no unpleasant after-effect or odor.
No danger of hurting the hair or of taking cold.
