We don't believe that the cooking

to "Mother's" special variety. The

that is a serious thing at' nay other
time. None of us know what they
are going up against: it will Vie a
different thing for eagh one of them,

normal condition. The mildly laxative

from the Intestines and you’ll soon be

this old famous Sage Tea Recipe, im-
proved by the addition of other ingredi-

known druggist here, because it darkens
the hair so naturally and evenly that no
one can tell it has been applied.
Those whose hair is turning gray or
becoming faded have a surprise awaiting
them, because after one or two applica-
tions the gray hair vanishes and your
locks become luxuriantly dark and beau-
tiful. ' >
