Certain Ingredients That Really
Promote Hair Growth when
Properly Combined
Reaorcin is one of the most
effective prem destroyers ever
discovered by science? aud in
connection with Beta Napthol,
which is both gcrpiicidal and (
autisrytic, a combination is formed
which destroys germs which robj
the lair of its natural nourishment, ]
aud also creates a clean, healthy i
condition of the sculp, which prevnts
th: development of ntw germs.
Pilccarpin, although not a color
ing matter or d«e is a well-known
ingredient for restoring the hair to
its natural color, when the loss of
hair has been caused by a disease
cf the scalp.

combination, with alcohol added as
a stimulant and for its well-defined
[nourishing properties, perfect per
jhaps the most effective remedy that

Is any vitality left in the roots, it
j will positively cure baldness, or we
will refund your money. It the
scalp has a glazed, shinv appear
ance, it's an indication thatVhald-
I ness is permanent, but in other
