YOUR GRAY HAIR
Use Grandma's Sage Tea and
Sulphur Recipe and Nobody
The use of Sage and Sulphur for re
storing faded, gray hair to its natural
color dates bark to grandmother s time.
She used it to keep her hair beautifully
dark, glossy and attractive. Whenever
her hair took on that dull, faded or
streaked appearance, this simple mix
ture was applied with wonderful ef
But brewing at home is ntussy and
out-of-date. Nowadays, by asking at
any drug store for a bottle of ‘‘Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Compound,” you will
get this famous old preparation, im
proved by the addition of other ingre
dients, which can be depended upon to
restore natural color and beauty to the
- hair. . . , ,
Well-known druggists say it darkens
the hair so naturally and evenly that
nobody can tell it has been applied.
You simply dampen a sponge or soft
brush with it and draw this through
your hair, taking one strand at a time.
By morning the gray hair disappears,
and after another application or two, it
becomes beautifully dark and glossy,

In some districts omens were drawn
from the way the wort boiled in the
brewing and the way the' cakes be
haved in the baking. “If the wort biles
i’ the pot” was an old saying. There
was an oatcake baked for each member
of tlie household, and if a cake broke
in the baking then death was to be
tlie lot of its owner before the coming
year had run Its course.
