TO DAY'S BEAUTY TALK You oan enjoy a delightful sham¬
poo with very little efTort and for a
very trifling cost, if you get from your druggist a package of can- throx and dissolve a teaspoonfal in a cup of hot water. This makes a
full cup of shampoo liquid, enough so it is easy to apply It to all the hair instead of Just the top of the head. Your shampoo is now ready. Just pour a littlo at a time on the scalp and hair until both are en¬ tirely covered by the daintily per¬ fumed preparation that thoroughly dissolves and removes every bit of dandruff, excess oil and dirt. After rinsing, the hair dries quickly, with a flufliness that makes it seem heavier than it is, and takes on a rich luster and a softness that makes arranging it a pleasure. Adv.
