Cocoanut Oil Makes
A Splendid Shampoo
If you want to keep your hair in
good condition, be careful what you
wash it with.
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries
the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and
is very harmful. Just plain mulsified
cocoarfut oil (which is pure and en
tirely greascless). is much better than
the most expensive soap or anything
else you can use tor shampooing, as
this can t possibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten -your hair with wa
ter and rub it in. One or two tea-
spoonfuls will make an abundance of
rich, creamy lather, and cleanses the
hair and sralp thoroughly. The lather
rinses out easny ana removes every
particle oP dust, dirt, dandruff and
excessive oil. The hair dries quickly
a-l evenly, and it leaves it fine and
snKy, bright, flufly and easy to man
You can get mulsified cocoanut oil
at most any drug store. It is very
cheap, and a tew ounces is enough to

Yon Can't Brush Or

most, if not all, of your dandruff will
be gone, and three or four more ap
plications will completely dissolve and
entirely destroy every single sign and
trace ot it, no matter how much dan
draff you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop
at once, and your hair will be fluffv
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and
look and feel a hundred times better.

An Effective Laxative
For Growing Children
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin
Highly Recommended as
a Family Remedy
, In children the slightest irregulari
ty of the bowels has a tendency to
disturb the entire digestive system,
and unless promptly remedied invites
serious illness. The experienced
mother knows that by training her
children to regularity in this respect,
and when occasion arises administer
ing a mild laxative, she will have little
need tor the doctors services.
Mrs. Leo Weigand. 325 Central
Ave., N. S Pittsburg, l'a., whose two
boys, I-rank and Joseph, are shown
m the illustration, writes that she has
found Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin a
most effective laxative, nut only for
the children but also for herself, and
that she will always keep it in the
house to use when needed. Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin is a combination
of simple laxative herbs with pepsin
that arts easily and naturally, with
out griping or other pain or discom
fort. It is pleasant to the taste so
that children like it, and is equally
effective on the strongest constitution.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin can be
obtained at any drug store for fifty
cents, and should have a place in
every home. It will save many times
its cost in lessened doctor bills and
maintain the health of the entire fain
ily. To avoid imitations and ineffec
tive substitutes be sure to get Dr.
Caldwell's .Syrup Pepsin. See that a
facsimile of Dr. Caldwell's signature
and his portrait appear on the yellow
carton in which the bottle is packed.
A trial bottle, free of charge, can be
obtained by writing to Dr. W. B.
