No woman can afford to be indiffer
ent to the appearance of her hair. A
mass of nice snappy hair, becomingly
dressed, will add more in genuine
looks than a pretty face, or an ex
pensive gown. Don't allow pie scalp
to become clogged with dirt and dan
druff. Don' tallow dandruff to destroy
your hair. If your hair is uneven,
dead, dull and brittle and comes out
by the handful every time you draw
a comb through it, dandruff is the
cause. To rid your scalp of the
dandruff and check the loss of hair
should be your first anxietv.
NEWBRO'S HERPICIDE will do
this and at the same time put the
hair and scalp in a sanitary condition.
HERPICIDE appeals to those of
greatest refinement on account of its
exquisite odor, its purity and clean
liness. It contains no grease and
does not stain or dye. There is noth
ing more dependable than this re
markable scalp prophylactic The

TO THE KIDNEYS
Take a tablespoonful of Salts
if Back hurts or Bladder
We are a nation of meat eaters
and our hi nod Is filled with uric acid.
I says a well-known authority, who
warns us to be constantly on guard
against kidney trouble.
The kidneys do their utmost to
free the blood of this Irritating acid,
but become weak from the over
work; they get sluggish; the elimin
ative tissues clog and thus the waste
is retained in the blood to poison
the entire srstom. 3
When your kidneys ache 4nd feel
like lumps of lead, and you have
stinging pains in the hack or the
urine is cloudy, full of sediment, or
the bladder is Irritable, obliging you
to seek relief during the night: when
you have severe headaches, nervous
and dizzy spells, sleeplessness, acid
storpach. or rheumatism In bad
weather, get from your, pharmacist
about four ounces of Jad Salts; take
a tablespoonful In a glass of water
before breakfast each jmorning and
in a few days your kidneys will act
fine. This famous salts is made
from the acid of grapes and lemon
Juice, combined with lithia, and has
been used for generations to flush
and stimulate clogged kidneys, to
neutralize the acids in urine so it is
no longer a source of Irritation, thus
ending urinary and bladder dis
orders. Jad Salts Is inexpensive and can
not Injure;' makes a delightful ef
fervescent lithia-water drink, and
nobody can make a mistake by tak
ing a little occasionally to keep the
kidneys clean and active.
