CASHIER TELLS SECRET
Never.Tcl, The New Delicately Per-
fumed Tablet, Darkened Her pair.
In a recent letter to the Never-Tel
Laboratories Company, rha cashier of
one of Kansis Citv's largest stores
wrote as follows: "I thank jou for
the free box of Nevcr-Tel tablets
which you sent me for the coupons.
I don't mind telling you that I have
used hair prenarations for nearly ten
years, and I find Never-Tel the '-lean
est and most satisfactory of all. 1
tried Never-Tel because the name
sounded good to me. The first two
treatments made little change, but
after the third treatment my hair
grew darker, so I continued until I
got the shade I wanted. Never-Tel
does all you claim for it, and more,
because it cleaned my hair of all
dandruff." Early history of how
Never-Tel was first discovered by a
prematurely gray college student,
also treatise on how to care for the
hair, in every box.
