"GRING0IRE THE SINGER,"
WITH HOMER LIND.
The valiant ones who braved the plush
warmth and visited the Columbia last night

Emery's Royal Italian Band attracted a
crowd to the cool hall of the Odeon. The

rendered by the Italians, Is remarkable.
Other features of the concert were "The
Evening Star." played by Slgnor CurtI;
the "Tannhauser March" and the Intermez
zo from "Cavallerla Rustlcana."
CTeatore, the director, sent word to the
Odeon that owing to illness he could not
direct, and Slgnor Massa, first clarinetist
and concert-melster of the organization,
led the musicians through the heavier se
lections in a manner which showed the
ability of the instrumentalists, for they
had no rehearsals under Massa.

Show began a week's engagement at Hand
lan's Park. Grand and Laclede avenues,

It's a gray line, with age; a black line,

when the hair is fed with Ayer's Hair Vigor.
There's an immense amount of satisfaction in
every bottle of it.
"My hair was falling out very fast, was rapidly turnin-r gray, and was verr
harsh and dry. I tried Ayer's Hair Vigor, and soon my hair began to be soft
