The loss of the hair is one of the most serious losses a woman can undergo. Beautiful hair gives many a woman a claim to beauty which would be utterly ; wanting if the locks were short and i scanty. It is almost as serious a loss when the natural hue of the hair begins to fade, ! and the shining tresses of chestnut and i a U i' rn Qr ,e changed to gray or to a faded shadow of their former brightness. Such a loss is no longer a necessity. There is one remedy which may well be called a t great remedy by reason of its great sue- cess in stopping- the falling of the hair, cleansing the scalp of dandruff, and restoring the lost color to gray or faded tresses. Dr. Aver's Hair Vigor is a stand- ara and reliable preparation, in use in tnousauds of homes, and recommended by everyone who has tested it and experienced the remarkable results that follow us use. _ It makes hair grow. It restores tHe original color to hair that has turned gray or faded out. It stops hair from falling, cleanses the scalp of dandruff, and gives the hair a thickness and gloss that no other preparation can produce. ""•'f"«n?nt>. of 356 Sast CSth St., New \ork City, writes: "A little more than a year ago, my hair began turning gray and falling out, and although I tried- ever so many things to prevent a continuance of these conditions I obtained no satisfaction until I tried Dr! Ayer's Hair Vigor. After using one bottle my hair was restored to its natural color, and ceased falling out."—Mrs. HERZMANN 356 East 68th St., New York City. "I have sold Dr. Ayer's Hair Vigor for fifteen years, and I do not know of a case where it did not give entire satisfaction. I have been, and am now using it myself for dandruff and gray hail-, and am thoroughly convinced that it is the best on the market. Isothiug- that I ever tried can touch it. It affords me great pleasure to recommend it to the public."—FRANK M. GROVE, Faunsdale, Ala. There's more on this subject in Dr. Ayer's Curebook. A story of cures told by the cured.
