Almost everyone knows that Sage
Tea and Sulphur, properly compound­
ed, brings back the natural color and
lustre to the hair when faded, streak­
ed or gray. Years ago the only way
to get this mixture was to make It at
home, which la mussy and trouble­
some. Nowadays, by asking at any
drug store for “ W yeth’s Sage and Sul­
phur Compound,” you will get a large
bottle of this famous old recipe, im­
proved by the addition of other In­
gredients, for about 60 cents.

can possibly tell that you darkened
your hair, as It does It so naturally
and evenly. You dampen a sponge or
soft brush with It and draw this
through your hair, taking one small
strand at a time: by morning the gray
hair disappears, and after another ap­
plication or two, your hair becomes
beautifully dark, glossy and attractive.
