Nelson.   British Colombia. Wednesday,  March 5, 1902
Eleventh   Year
TO WELCOME
TOURISTS
Association Formed to Make
Known Attractions of
Nelson.
Enthusiastic   Meeting   That
Foreshadows Abundant
Success.
A meeting to organize a tourist as-
soiation was held last evening in the
Hoard of Trade rooms which was
attended by a large and representative
gathering of business men.
On motion ot Melville 1'arry
seconded by F Starkey, J.Fred Hume
was mado chairman. Mr. 1'arry consented tu act as secretary for the meeting. Short speeches were made by a
number of the gentlemen present dealing with the object of the association. Mr. Hume gave a practical
account of the work that had been
accomplished by similar organizations
in New Brunswick, and spoke of the
necessity of such an association to
protect the game.
T. U. Procter said that all were
united on the benefits to be derived
from such an association, the question
was as to whether sufficient funds
could be raised. He dealt principally
with tbe best means of raising these
funds, and spoke of the necessity of
getting the right men in at tbe start.
J. M. Lay spoke of the requisites
for giving tbo tourists satisfaction
when they camo bore and thought
that if the association could be
formed that it would not only advertise the section but also attend to
making the tourists comfortable when
they came that it should be a great
success,
G. _). Miller thought that if the association would communicate with
Cooke's tourist agency and other
similui companies that they would be
willing to place Nelsou on their lists,
if a little judicious work were done.
Also advertising the oity in the magazines would help.
W. A. Jowett spoke of how little
was known of the existence of Nelson
in Great Britain. Rossland was well
known but nothing waB known of
Nelson. If the city was properly advertised there was no question but
that not only the city but the distriot
wonld be benefitted immensely.
It. H. Williams spoke of the beautiful scenery in all directions around
Nelson which it should be possible to
reach by roads. If the present road
towards Granite was kept in good
condition it would be a very grand
attraction in giving a nice drive.
There were also ronas leading to Cottonwood lake which if kept iu repair
would furnish an attractive drive.
Evntually ho hoped to see a road
along the lake on the other side.
Mr. Busk agreed with the previous
speakers. He thought the association
wculd ho of great benefit, and ho
wonld do all in lus power to aid its
work.
On motion of F. Starkey, seconded by
Mr. Miller it was decided that an
association should be fotmed to the
known as The Kootenny Tourist Association, with head office at Nolson and
branch associations at other towns in
the Kootenays, the membership fee to
be$l.
On motion of J. A. Turner, seconded
by .1, M. Lay, it was decided that the
officers of the organization should
consist of president, vice-president,
hecrotary-treasurer, and an executive
committee of live.
F. Ttmblyn said ho thought care
should be taken not to get the executive committee too large. What was
needed' was workers and a small committee wus nearly always the DeBt.
In connection with a remark of a
previous speaker as to the superior
attractions on the main line of the C.
l'.R. he said that that might be so,
but it must bo remembered that there
were a large number of tourists who
had visited the main line resorts many
times and would bo glad to see something new. It all dopended on tbe
present organization if those poople
nnd others were Induced to come hero
oi allowed to go away to othor parts
oi the globe for lack of a little judicious work nnd advertising.
.1. A. Turner thought live was small
enough for an exooutive committee
The   association   In   tbe uity  should
bave at least 100 members, and extend
into other towns and the amount of
work would be large. It would also
be advisable to have members added
to tho executive from towns in the
district in wboh there were members
of tho association.
J. E. Annable pointed out that none
of the provious speakers had touched
on, one of the greatest attractions to
tourists from other parts of the
country, namely the mines. These
should also be advertised as show
features, and arrangements made so
that tourists who wished could be
shown through one by a member of
the association.
The election of officers was then
proceeded with, when J. Fred Hume
was unanimously elected president,
and T. G. Procter, vice-preslent.
It was decided in view of the
onerous duties of the secretary that
tbis appointment should be left in tbe
hands of the executive committee.
For the executive committee there
were eleven nominations, the five
elected being 3. A. Turner.J. M. Lay,
W. Downie, W. A. Jowett and C. W.
Busk.
On motion of F. Starkey, seconded
by J. A. Turner, it was decided that
Mayor Fletcher should be an honorary
member of the committee.
On motion of Mr. Turner, seconded
by Mr. Morley, Messrs. Procter and
Jowett were appointed a committee to
collect subscriptions.
It was decided that the committee
should meet on Friday evening at the
Hume hotel to draw up a programme
of work and settle various business
arrangements and report to the association at another general meeting
which is to be held next Tuesday
evening.
Those who joined the association
last night were: 0. Newling, T. A.
Mills, W. A. Jowett, D. Booth, D. C.
McLennan, T, Morley, J. A. Turner,

Britain Now Maintains 300.-
000  Men In South
Africa.
London, March 4.���In introTncings
the army estimates of ��69,310,(100 in
the House of Commons today, Mr.
Broderick, war secretary, entered into
a long defence of the war office, which
ho contended had done its work well,
considering that a war had never before been waged on such a scale as the
South African war. The war oflice
today was feeding 300,000 men 2-10,000
horses in South Africa and there were
no complaints on that score.
The experiences of the past year had
confirmed the necessity tor changes in
the army administration in decentralisation and other matters, as outlined by the givernment last year.
Military officers and clerks were being
rapidly substituted in the war office
for civilian officers. With a view to
giving a fillup to lecruiting. Mr.
Broderick Baid, the government proposed to allow enlistment for three
years, with nine years in the reserve
and witn the object of inducing men
to enlist for India and elsewhere
abroad it was proposed to give every
one a clear shilling per day. If, after
two years, the soldier decided to serve
eight years with the colors and four
years in the reserve, he would be paid
then an extra six pence dally. Mr.
Broderick believes this would result
in enlis-t'ng a better class oi men.
In regaid to the much discussed
question of volunteers, Mr. Broderick
declared that if the volunteers were to
be a bar to conscription, they must
make themselves efficient. It was
proposed to establish a volunteer
reserve of men over forty years of age
who were unable to comply with tha
ordinary regulations, and establish
during tho present year a military
reserve of 50,000 men. Tlie education
of all officers would be vigorously
prosecuted and the expenses of young
officers would be lightened.
ARBANGE AN INTERVIEW.

Washington, March 4,���Wesscls and
Wolmarans accompanied by Montague
White, consul general for the South
African republic, ut New York, who

Boers With Reckless Bravery
Gapture   a   British
Convoy.
Despite  Desperate   Defence
Corps Utterly Cut to
Pieces.
London, March 5.���Telegrams reoeived here from Klerksdorp describing the attack upon and capture by
the Boers on February 24th, at a po:nt
southwest of Klerksdorp.oi 4G7 British
soldiers wbo were acting as convoys
to an empty wagon train, show that
Ueneral Uelarey laid his plans with
consummate care and precise know
ledge of the ground.
The third Boer nttaok upon the convoy was delivered from various points
and was most determined. By sheer
recklessness tbey sought to ride down
and overwhelm the British defence,
tho British guns shelled the charging
Boers but nothing stopped their onslaught, which was delivered witb
unusual impetus. The convoy of
mules were subjected to a heavy fire
and in many cases were oeserted by
the native drivers. They stampeded,
snd put many of the defenders temporarily out of action and caused the
wildest confusion.
For two hcurs the British held
out. They then divided and were
overwhelmed. A few minutes of con-
fuBed fighting and all was over. The
Boers galloped along the line, firing
at overy man wbo showed the slightest tendency to resist until they reached and captured the guns. In the ex-
treino rear the Northumberland Fusi-
leers who bad boen cut off, succeeded
in fighting their way out for some distance. When their ammunition became exhausted they charged witb
bayonets but were speedily overpowered.
By 7 o'clock in the morning all
resistance was at n-n end. The dead
and wounded weie scattered all over
the field. Broken wagons and panic
stricken hoisos and mules made a
scene of indescribable confusion. Not
until Geneial Delarey came in person
wus anything like ordor restored. He
stopped the Boers engaged in stripping the British wounded, but they
continued the wcrk of despoiling
directly his back was turned.

Victoria, March 1.���Premier
Dunsmuir made A speech in the houro
today in roply to Cant. Tatlu w, of
Vancouver, in which he accused Tatlow and Garden, of a desire to enter
his cabinet, if they could havo been
re-elected. He claimed that Martin
wns not the dictator of the government but was one of its supporters.
The terms of the contract with McKenzic and Mann were submitted in
thc house today. Tbey agree to
build a line from Bute Inlet to Yel-
lowhead Pass, commencing work before June, 11103, beginning it Bute.
They aro to deposit (50,000 secutity.
The line is to be completed within
live years. The company is to get
$4.1100 per miles for the first 50 miles
commencing at Bute inlet; from tho
end of tho first 50 miles to Quesnelle,
about 150 miles, they got 84,000 a mile
and lrom Quesnelle to Yellowhead
pass they get $4,500 per mile. Tbo
mileage grant is payable at the end of
each 20 miles of railway constructed.
The company also get 30,000 acres per
mile in Westminster, Lillooet and
Cariboo districts. The land gianted is
not subject to provincial or municipal
taxation until alienated bv lyase or
sale. Ttie same applies to the stock

Sectt railway to Victoria. Two per

Frederick Arm provision is made for
additional aid. If inside ol two years
the ioute is found Impracticable, and
so reported tc the government, the
contract is null and void.
The Manila American says it has
very good reasons for believing that
quite recently a vessel Moating tbe
German Hag loaded Mauser rilles on
thc coast of Batangas for tbe use ol the
insurgents.
It is said that tho shipment com-
piised 70 cases, of about 1,400 riUes,
with ammunition. Thc vessel Was
seen hovering about the coast of Min-
doro for several days; finally it
dropped up to Batangas, almost
within cannon shot of Manila, and
later disappeared. About tho same
time a cargo of arms was landed on
ths boat. Tho destination of those
weapons, the paper says, can readily
be imagined. Itaneas were used in
both irstujeus. Tbis dangerous system
of smuggling is rather safe in the
absence of an amplu system of patiol
boats, wbich are now boing built.
The rifles can bo bought in Germany
and Japan lor something like $13
Mexican, and they readily command
$50 in gold on being delivered to the
insurgent commanders. In view of
the existence of numerous recruiting
stations in the district of Manila
Itself, the Manila journal believes
these importations arc lerlous,

AGAINST THE PROSl'KCTOR.
A mnn who has packed his blankets
for five years over the hills looking
lor the million dollar bonanza and
failing to find it, has retired to follow
an occupation wlieio the expeditious
are less and tlio realizations greater,
called at The Miner oflice yesterlay to
express his mind regarding the resolution which was passed at'the recent
meeting ol the Associated Uuuids of
Trade of Eastern British Columbia
wherein that bjdy recommends the
provincial government, ii it must levy
taxes on the mining industry, to
charge a lee of S1 -.r>0 for recording a
claim or an assessment work.
"If thoso men would leave mining,
which they apparently kno.v nothing
about, alone, he said, they would be
doing the province greater service
than they are. 1 have packed my
blankets over the hills and I will te'l
you that but for the name of it the
fellow in Gov. Lemon's charge is living the life of a prince compared with
that of a prospector who is in the hills.
Where did you ever see a rich prospector? The numbor who make a
stake is small. Where would they
get the money to pay for the recording
of the claims'.' It a prospector strikes
a claim bere he can take ont a little
ore on his oa account that takes nothing from any nne elso. It is not until
���^he man with capital goes in that the
government is asked to spend anyraoney
in the opening up nf roads. When the
mines are opened mi a large scale the
element of uncertainty is eliminated
and until that stago is reached the
prospector is doing the advance work,
which cists the government nothing,
and ihe aggegato he receives in the
good strikes that ho makes is but
small return for the total of work
which he, or Ins class, has done in
locating or developing the claims that
prove blanks.
"Where will you see such lapid
development in mining as in California, Nevada. Mmilana ond in
Washington? In these states the fee
for recording any paper is only 7!ic or
$1 and there is no miners' license fee
to pay. There the lodes have heen
discovered nnd alter the mines have
bi on developed, hut under such a state
of things ns the Associated boards
propose to bring about you will drive
every prospector out of tlie country
and stop the mining Industry altogether. Instead, the business men
might form an association to make it
easy tor tlio prospector to sell his
claims and for the capitalist to ascertain where ihere are likely claims in
wlich he con Invest, so thut he will
require less lime and trouble to examine claims lhat are not wi.rth luuk-
ing after, The object should ho to
procure for the prospector the technical knowledge thut would guide him
as to what claims are wnrih putliiig

CHINES!. CU   MISSION.
A more complete report of the findings of the Chinese commission than
that at first telegraphed by tho Associated Iross has reached.this offico and
was published in yestreday's issue of
The Minei. The commission, whieh
was made up ol Messrs. 21ote, Foley
and Miiun.was appointed eaily in 1001
and spent tho time up to a few day6
since in investigating and reporting
on thu question of the desirability of
Chinese immigration. They took
testimony in a number of the principal cities of Uritish Columbia and
visited San Francisco is tho course of
their investigations.. The commission was an able and a representative
one. There was no difference of
opinion between the commissioners
on the main question of the desirability of exclusion. They carefully
weighed the gieat mass of testimony
which they heard and the conclusion
wlich they arrived at was that Chinese
immigration was undesirable, for they
say: ''In unskilled labor the
Chinese, by working at a lower wage,
bar out white labor. The constant
presence of Chinese is a real danger to
the existence of the white working-
man. He becomes dissatisfied, and in
many cases, leaves the province, or, if
ne remains, advises his firends not to
come." Messrs. Clute and Foley
recommend that the capitation tax he
at onco raised to $500. Mr. Munn,
however, considers that it should only
be raised to $30<).
The recommendation ofthe majority
of the commission should be adopted
as a capitation tax of if.'idfl on the
Chinese coming into the province
would practically mean exclusion. It
would t-eep out all but a very few
and the presence of a small number
would do great haim.
As the commissioners very sagely
observed the presence of Ciinese causes
Caucasains to leave tho province and
prevents others from coming. Should
this condition of affairs- continue for
any great length of time the Chinese
element would soon be in the ascendency numerically. The people of
Canada can look at the example of the
condition of tho Southern States of the
United States, with its menacing problem of the colored question. A
majority of tho people of the
Southern States, many yoars since,
insisted on cheap and servile labor,
claming that it was nocessary in the
development of tho oountry. The result was the introduction of slavery.
This has yroven a curse to the country
and ils results are that there are nearly '.1,0(10,000 of the African race in the
American republic. It toak a four
years' war to free the slaves and the
negro problem is ono of te most serious today that confronts the people of
thc United States,
Somo of the residents of this province desire cheap and servile laboi,
and thev, like the early settlers in the
Southern States, say that it Is necessary for the development of the
country's resources. They want cheap
laborers in the shape of Asiatics. If
they are allowed to have their way
nnd unrestricted Asiatic immigration
is allowed the problem in timo woufd
he ��s hard a one to solve as the negro
question is in the United States.
Asintio immigration should be
checked and one way to do this is to
raise tlio per capita tax to TMX). I���
time, however, au exclusion bill
should hu adopted.

MINING NEWS.     |
;���********** **************
Preparations have been made by the
Minto Mining company to resume
work on the California group situated
en Toad Mountain about two and a
naif miles from Nelson. Tbe chief
shareholders in the company are Hugh
Sutherland, of Winnipeg, and Wm.
McKenzie and Dan. Mann, of
Montreal.
Wm.Moore was oue of the first owners of this property and had bonded it
to New York parties, some years ago.
Tbey did considerable work on li,
running a tunnol for 700 feet and
sinking a shaft of 100 feet, all the
work being on the vein. This showed
up the property very well but the bond
was not taken up. About two years
ago, Mr. Moore arranged a bond witb
the present owners. Tbey did little
work but shipped 50 tons of the 100
tons that tbe previous owners had left
on the property. This ore at the Hall
Mines smeltor yielded returns of about
850 to thc ton. Work was stopped but
the bond was completed and the Minto
company formed.
Notification has been received from
tbe chief shareholders tbat about May
1st an extensive system of operation
will be inaugurated und at least, it is
judged, $35,000 will be spent during
the coming summer.
Tho ore of this mine carries free
gold and is of much the same character as tbat of the Athabasca. There
are four leads on the group, which
consist of three claims, the California,
Deadwood and Union, all erown
granted.
A good wagon road has been made
from the Hall Mines road so that from
the first, development and the stoping
of ore may be done.
It wns reported yesterday that the
Glad Hand mineral claim on Cottonwood creek, near the Athabasca had
beeu bonded by Messrs. Hickey and
Caldwell to Miss Leigh Spencer, of
Vancouver. Miss Spencer alreaoy
owns tho Robin Hood, which adjoins
thc Glad Hand, and united they will
make a very promising property. The
amount of the bond is stated to be
$4,000.
J, Callahan yesterday transferred all
his interest in the Humming Bird
claim to M. O'Ncil, consideration
nominal; J. Anderson transferred au
undivided Interest in tho Lucknow
frnctonal to M. B. Driscoll; George
Davis transferred the Florenoo Nightingale, Lilly Jose and Winnie Davis,
to W. H. Bogau.

BIG IKON CLAIM.
American Steel Corporaton to Examine
Property Near Nelson.
Representatives of tho American
Steel Corporation are expected t3
arrive in Nelson in the course of a
month to examine an iron property
situated about 10 miles from Nelson.
This property was located four years
ago by Wm. Moore and partners as
the Peterborough group. Since then
Mr. Moore as acquired tbe interests of
the others until now he is sole owner.
The group is situated on Iron Mountain, two and a half miles from Bonnington. The lead is from 50 to 200
feet in width and the ore rnns from
50 to 00 pur cent, in magnetic iron
with from $1.50 to $5 in gold. It is
remarkably free from sulphur or other
deleterious matter, and 100 pound
samples sent to New York were considered satisfactory by those to whom
they were submitted. Similar samples
have also been sent to Wm. Biake-
morc and he pronouood It suitable for
manufacturing purposes. It is well
known that a magnetic iron ore produces the best grade of steel.
These claims have had about $5,000
expended on them. The work thus
dono opened tho vein for COO feet and
the ore remains evon in quality
throughout. The prospect is one that
there is every likelihood will be
developed by parties with the means
to turn it to advantage.

HISTORY OF THE GOLD BRICK.
Accused Admitted Taking What Was
Due Them and No More.
The gold brick esse at the court
house was continued all day yesterday, judgment being reserved until
this afternoon at 2 p.m. A laige number of spectators were present throughout the day, the peculiar features of
the case evoking much interest. The
morning was chiefly occupied In hearing the witnesses for the crown, who
stated the cicrumstances practically as
they were given in yesterday's Miner.
II. LaBrasch one of the accused, vias
tbe first witness called for the defense.
He narrated the final processes used in
finishing the brick. He asked Mr.
Nichols for his pay but was told that he
conld not get it. He then asked when
he would get it but this Mr. Nichols
said he was nnable to tell bim.
LaBrasch then said be would be willing to tako a portion of the brick or a
cheque but was told that he could not
lnfve a cheque and that the brick did
not belong to Mr..Nichols. This thc
witness stated tbat he did not believe
and so decided to take possession of
enough of the brick to cover his
wages. Simon Pleff, who was in the
office when this took place then asked
for his wages, saying tnat he had
stayed on working when the others
had left aud thought he was entitled
to some money. Ho received the same
answer as LaBrasch and then told the
latter to out enough off ior him too.
and wont and got the chisel to assist
in the cutting. The bookkeeper, Mr.
Austin, was standiug there and
LaBrash asked him how much was
coming to him and was told that it
was $281.05. The amount coming to
Pleff was $295. As the amounts given
bv the bookkeeper tallied with what
they nad figured on themselves, La-
Brash thereupon cut off 32 and 2-lOth
ounces, estimating the value of the
gold at about 817, whicb was the
amount the assayer valued it at. Mr.
Nichols then left. Mr. Austin said
that they had bettei weigh the balance
and make out a receipt for what they
had taken, whieh they did. Pleff
started for town on foot, having heard
that Mr. Nichols had left about a
quarter of an hour before, and hoping
to overtake him. LaBrash came in on
the evening train, and saw Mr.
Nichols twice, once at the Madden
hotel and onoe, abo ut 9 o'clock, when
he was arrested. He did not see Pleff
in tne meantime until he saw him in
court.
On croBS cxaminttion by the counsel
for the crown nothing new was
elicited. The piisoner stuck to his
statement that he had intenoed to
place the gold in a bank until he
received his pay. He had been employed by Mr. Nichols for four
months, and had been paid the first
month but had received nothing since
then. Mr. Nichols on the second pay
day told him that he would pay them
when ne got the concentrates from the
mine on the market. Before he was
employed at the Fern he had been
working as a bridge carpenter for tbe
C. P. R. for some years.
Before Pleff was called to the stand
A. M. Johnson was called and stated
that he had known Pleff for seven
years. The prisoner was a miner and
prospector by trade and had been in
Nelson and vicinity during that time.
He had had dealings with him and
knew him well and had always found
him an honest and upright man.
The evidence of Pleff was substantially the same as that of LaBrasch.
The crown lawyer tried to show that
the men had come to the office prepared to seize the brick if their salaries were not paid. This was denied
by both the prisoners who said that
they had no intention of this until the
manager refused to pay. They had
not discussed any such action.
S. S. Taylor in summing up the
evidence in favor of tbe defense said
that the men had considered that they
had a lien on tbe gold. They had
taken the ore from tbe mine and had
run it through the various processes
and so felt that it was to a certain
extent their own prod jet They gave
a receipt for the amount they took to
the bookkeeper which was accepted,
there had been no intention to
defraud. They had carefully weighed
the gold allowing the manager extra
so that he would not be out any. They
had been badly treated. He asked for
their dismissal.
R.M.Macdonald asked the magistrate
to commit the prisoners for trial.
Their release woulc have a very bad
effect throughout the whole provinco
as it would seem to imply that a servant had a right to seise his master's
property if his wages were not paid.
This was downright anarchy. Tne
law provided a remedy for such cases
and the men had no right to take the
law into their own hands. The men
admitted taking the gold.
The magistrate said that he would
reserve judgment until tbe morniing.
Tbe case bad such unusual features
that he would like to consider it
thoroughly. He therefore adjourned
tbe court till 2 p.m. today.

lueKy enough to capture five Hoers,
Desides helping to round up :10 others.
Lord Kitchener sent the foreo a telegram of congratulation, ind Capt.
Beer's colonel sent his troop a personal wire praising their work. There
was not a single casualty on tho
British side. When he got back to
his post after thnt trek he was a bit
weak again, and bis medical officer
sent him off on a three weeks leave to
Cape Town, where he is enjoying a
good rest. Capo Town is lovely at
present and quite full uf civilians
with a mixture of khaki. It ia much
cooler there than up country. There
are new Yeomnory corps arriving and

Development ol Kettle River Coal
Measures to Start This Spring.
Grand Folks, March 1.���Tile British
Columbia Coal Co., whicli recently
acquired tho coal fields on the north
fork of Kettle river, will undertake
development work on an extensive
scale this spring. A plant including a
diamond drill will be installed. It is
the intention of the management to
sink at various points to a depth of
four or five hundred feet. Already a
three-foot and a six-foot vein, besides
smaller showings, are visiblo on the
surface and can be traced for miles.
Tho coal also outcrops at seveial
places on both banks of the iiver. It
is of the bituminous or coking variety
and is said to be equal to the product
of the Crow's Nest mines. Several
samples recently analyzed at thp
Granby smelter assay otlice gave averago
values of 75 per cent, fixed carbon,
the return from the government assay
otlioe at Victoria being only two pet
cent less.
Several meu were despatched to the
coal fields last week or the purpose of
locating additional claims as there is
every reason to believe tbat the coal
measures extend north beyond the
limits already staked out. As the
region oould not be reached from
Grand Forks at this season of the year
owing to the depth of snow on the
upper reaches of the river, the men
went iu via Killarney, a point on the
Arrow lakes. In summer Grand
Forks is the natural outfitling point.
A good trail extends from this city to
a point within 30 miles of the coal
locations. For the balance of the
distance a good trail r. ill probably be
built this summer as the Grand Forks
board of trade has memorialized lho
government on the subject.
Thc coal company has also acquiied
the right to bore for oil, which from
the formation in a portion of the
valley, is likely tr be struck.
Charles Ferguson, contractor for
consruction work on the Republic
and Grand Forks railway, is ill in
Republic, suffering from a severe
attack of pneumonia.
Two new passenger coaches for tho
Republic and Grand Forks railway
have arrived irom the east.
The recent shipment of assorted ore
to the Granby smelter from the California mine, near Hepublic is said to
havo averaged over ?3S0 per ton.
B, A. Ilrown has 40 men at work at
legging operations on his limits on
the north fork of Kettle river. He is
getting out 2,700,000 feet. The logs
will be Boated down the river to the
sawmill of Lcquime and Powers on
smelter lake.

KILL TnE DANDRUFF GERM
Oi Your Hair Will Fall Out Till You
Become Bald.
Modern science has discovered that
dandruff is caused by a geim that digs
up the scalp in scales, as it burrows
down to the roots of the hair, where
it destroys the hair's vitality, causing
tailing hair, and, ultimately, baldness. After Prof. Unnu, of Hamburg.
Germany, discovered the dandiuff
germ, all efforts to find a remedy
failed until the great laboiatory discovery was mado whieh resulted in
Newbro's Herpicide. It alone of all
other hair preparations kills the dandruff germ. Without dandruff, hair
grows luxuriantly. "Destroy the
cause, you remove the effect."
