AUGUST HAXEBEKG, who assisted in receiving the guests j Sirs. Hugh Hogan's tea yesterday. From time immemorial, sage and sulphur have been used for the hair and ; scalp. Almost everyone knows of the lvalue of such a combination for darkening the hair, for curing dandruff and falling hair, and for making the hair grow.

The Wyeth Chemical Company of New Tork put up an ideal remedy of this sort, .called Wyeth's Sage and .Sulphur -Hair Remedy, and authorize druggists 'to sell iti unde-r-guarantee that the money wiU be refunded if it fails to do exactly .as represented. If you have dandruff, or if your hair is turning 'gray or coming out, don't dejay, but -get a bottle of this remedy today, and . see what a few days" treatment will do for you. This preparation is offered to the public at fifty cents a bottle; and Is recommended and sold by all druggists. Special agent.

Whenever it stagnates or stops disorganization' begins and bjr some. means or other the current must be set going agafn. fThis is one effect "which .the skillful: tnasseur ? produces -by friction. Massage stimulates -the lymphatics to greater. activity, causing, them to carry off thej waste. material which accumlates rapidly when they .are sluggish. As thist waste material is really dead organic matter, it acts as an irritant and poison in the system, v .;r w:-?V.--l-',---..'i. Still another important fact of massage is the reflex stimulation of the vaso motor centers. .The vaso ttfotor system is made up of a vast network of countless nerves and liervelets, reaching to every part of the. body, "and controlling all the processes of nutrition, secretion anJ excretion. In health this system works perfectly and automatically, but in disease or 'as one grows older it begins to act irregularly. The circulation is enfeebled and the application of massage is jieeded to stimulate, action." As soon as the stagnated blood begins to move, various excellent .effects manifest themselves." The hot dry skin becomes moist, the internal-heat which was burning up the body is radiated rapidly and all the poisonous products and tissue waste are- eliminated. Scientific massage is not charlatanry. It does riot promise the impossible, but it does promise great relief in diseased, and weakened conditions of the face; as well 33 the body. ; There is no guesswork about lit nor can it be practiced properly , by an ignorant or inexperienced person. Long study and" thorough training-are the first requisites, . " - ' - , Many persons ate under the false impression -that massage meahs rubbing. The; worst-effect .of this confusion ol terms is that" those who do not know the difference take for granted that every treatment labeled massage is'therefore scientific, and that the operator possesses special knowledge and experience. Massage is a science. The competent-masseur, ,must possess" a thorough knowledge of the bodily organs1 and all other functions, 'and of the relation of each to all the others. Therefore he must be educated along the same lines-as physicians, before they will instruct their patients to this treatment. Remember, if you would keep young and. beautiful you .must exercise every muscle inyour body. V - J V'tr-' - T n s y.:' LILLIAN RUSSELL Copyright Photo by Schloss I. T. M.
