*C* Tea and Sulphur Turni
Gray, Faded Hair Dark
(?most everyone knows that Sags
Till and Sulphur, properly compound
ed. brines back the natural color and
lustre to the hair when faded, streaked
or fray. Years a so the only way to set
this mixture was to make It at home
which Is mussy and troublesome.
Nowadays we simply ask at any
Orue store for "Wyeth's Base and Sul
phur Compound." You will get a large
bottle of this old-time recipe improved
by the addition of other Ingredients
at very little cost. Everybody nisei
this preparation now, because no one
can possibly tell that you darkened
your hair, as It does It so naturally
apd.0yenly. You dampen a sponge 01
Soft crush 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, thick and glossy and
you look years younger. Wyeth's Sage
and Sulphur Compound Is a delightful
toilet requisite. It Is not Intended for

Make a solution of Red Seal Lye
and sprinkle into all the dark
corners, and all mustiness will
immediately disappear, leaving
your cellar fresh and sweet
If your kitchen sink does not
drain quickly, here is an immediate
remedy. Sift a little Red Seal Lye
