GRAY HAIR IS
Tells How She Did It With a Home
Mrs. E. H. Boots, a well-known
resident of Buchanan County, la.,
who darkened her gray hair, made
the following statement:
"Anyone can darken their gray or
faded hair, and look twenty years
younger with this simple remedy,
which they can mix at home. To
half a pint of water add 1 ounce of
bay rum, one small box of Barbo
Compound and ounce of glycer
ine. These ingredients can be pur
chased at any drug store at very
little cost. Apply to the hair every
other day until the gray hair is
darkened sufficiently. It does not
color the scalp, is not greasy and
does not rub off. It will make a
gray-haired person look twenty
years younger." (Adv.)
