Druggist Says Everybody Is Using Old-time Recipe for Sage Tea and Sulphur. Hair that loses its color and lustre, or when It fades, turns gray, dull and lifeless, Is caused by a lack of sulphur in the hair. Our grandmother made up a mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur to keep her locks dark and beautiful, 4 and thousands of women and men who 1 value that even'eolor, that beautiful dark shade of hair which Is so attractive, use only this ojd-tlme recipe. Nowadays we get this famous mixture improved by the addition - of other lngre(dlents by asking at any drug store for a 60-cent bottle of "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Com- pound," which darkens the hair so naturally, so evenly, that nobody can possibly tell It has been applied. You Just dampen a sponge or soft brush with It and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time. By morning; the gray hair dla-' appears; but what-delights the ladles with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound, Is that, besides beautifully darkening the hair after a few applications, it also brings back the gloss and lustre and gives It an appearance of abundance. Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound Is a delightful toilet requisite to Impart color and a youthful appearance to the hair. It Is not intended for the cure, mitigation or pre ventlon of disease.
