Use Cocoanut Oil
For Washing Hair
If you want to keep your hair in
good condition, be careful what you
wash it with.
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries
the scalp, makes the hair brittle,
and is very harmful. Mulsified
cocoanut oil shampoo (which is pure
and entirely greaseless) is much
better than anything else you can
use for shampooing, as this can't
possibly injure the hair.
Simjly moisten your hair with
water and rub it in. One or two
teaspoonfuls will make an abun
dance of rich, creamy lather, and
cleanses the hair and scalp thor
®ughly. The lather rinses out eas
ily, and removes every particle of
dust, dirt, dandruff and excessive
oil. The hair dries quickly and
evenly, and it leaves it fine and silky,
bright, fluffy and easy to manage.
You can get Mulsified cocoanut oil
shampoo at most any drug store. It
is very cheap, and a few ounces is
enough to last everyone in the fam
ily for months.
Avoid Indigestion, Sour Acid Stomach,
Heartburn, Gas On Stomach, Etc*
Indigestion and practically all
forms of stomach trouble, say medi
cal authorities, are due nine times
out of ten to an excess of hydro
hloric acid in the stomach. Chronic
"acid stomach" is exceedingly danger
ous and sufferers should do either
one of two things.
Either they can go on a limited and
often disagreeable diet, avoiding
foods that disagree with them, that
irritate the stomach and lead to ex
cess acid secretion or they can eat
as they please in reason and make it
a practice to counteract the effect of
the harmful acid and prevent the for
mation of gas, sourness or premature
fermentation by the use of a little
Bisurated Magnesia at their meals.
• There is probably no better, safer
or more neiiable stomach antiacid
than Bisurated Magnesia and it is
widely used for this purpose. It has
no direct action on the stomach and
is not a digestant. But a teaspoonful
of the powder or a couple of five grain
tablets taken in a little water with
the food will neutralize the excess
acidity which may be present and
prevent its further formation. This
removes the whole cause of the
trouble and the meal digests natur
ally and healthfully without need of
pepsin, pills or artificial digesta'nts.
Get a few ounces of Bisurated Mag
nesia from any reliable druggist. Ask
for either powder or tablet. It
never comes as a liquid, milk or
citrate and in the bisurated form is j
Must Look to Their Blood if
They Wish to Regain Their
Health and Happiness
Many symptoms peculiar to women,
such as dizziness, fainting spells,
backache, headaches, Kidney and
Bladder troubles, languor and nerv
ousness are in a large part due to
impurities In the blood or worse
still, anaemia, which means that the
Blood is thin, watery and lacking in
If you are rundown. If your energy
or strength are below normal, if you
have to force yourself to do your
daily tasks, you should enrich your
blood supply at once.- In this way—
you start a sure foundation on which
to build your health and happiness.
You may easily and quickly renew
both the quantity and quality of
your Blood by taking a short course
of Novo San.
Novo San, the new Red Blood
Builder, has already won a place In
the hearts of scores of women by
restoring their youthful health and
vigor. It not only rids your blood
of poisonous impurities, but actually
makes new blood, in this way vitaliz
ing your whole body, charging you
with new powers of endurance and
energy, stimulating the action of the
kidneys, liver and bowels, promot
ing regularity, health and comfort.
Your jaded nerves are steadied and
your overworked, undermined, weak
ened system Is quickly nourished
back to health and strength.

obtain a trial package of Novo San
(12 days' treatment). Take two tab
lets three limes a day after meals
regularly for 12 days and If you do
not feel at least 50 per cent, better,
return the empty package to the
druggist and yet your money.
