Napoleon wa deathly afraid oFa Razor THE Emperor Napoleon never permitted anyone near him with an open razor. He did his own shaving and, owing to a sensitive skin, never could get a razor that pleased him. The one that an- noyed him least was picked up during the Peninsular Cam paign and had a blade of Saracen steel. Today nearly all the World's Rulers use a Gillette Safety Razor. The latest convert is Yuan Shih k'ai, the great man of China. Another is the Premier of New Zealand. In the present war the Gillette is used by the leading Generals and by some 3,000,000 men in the trenches and on all fronts. The Gillette shave is quick and cool, safe and sanitary.
