Cora 8.: As your hair Is short and
thin, and you have so much trouble to
make It stay up and look neat, try
shampooing It with a teasnonful of
canthrox dissolved In a cup of hot
water. This shampoo Is the one gen
erally used by the best hairdressers to
make tho hair look thicker and lustrous.
It produces an abundunt lather, dries
quickly, and not onlv cleaiiH the hair
and scalp well, but stops all Irritation
and gives the scalp a feeling of pleas
ing freshness. Canthrox makes a de
lightful shampoo and will make your
hair soft and fluffy. You will have
llttlo trouble then to make your hair
look nice. Never use soup for sham
pooing, as It makes the hair brittle,
harsh, and takes away the gloss; look,

WASHINGTON. O. C
November 19, 1912.
Mr. E. C. Rogers, Adv. Mgr.,
The Washington Times,
My dear Sir:
Your Mr. Gascon, who has been calling on us for advertising, in the interest of The Washington
Times, has requested that I put in writing what I told him yesterday; namely, that our first advertise
mentthe page in last Sunday evening's edition brought us a far greater volume of direct results and
prospective purchasers than we have ever before received. As you are aware, this was our first display
advertisement in The Times, though you will of course recall that we have been advertising in other
Washington papers up to this time.
Monday's business resulted in the sale of six high-grade pianos, directly traceable to our Sunday
Times' advertisement, together with a large number of prospective purchasers, from whom we expect to
make many sales.
I wish to also take this opportunity to thank" The Times for the very valuable assistance rendered
by your Copy Department in making our Sunday advertisement the effective result puller that It proved
Yours very truly,
This time it was pianos because it was pianos the merchant was advertising. The other
day it was clothing a few days before that it was homes and a time back, automobiles.
What's the Answer?
The answer is, if you have anything salable you can sell it through The Times anything
from spool-cotton to pianos, automobiles and homes. The Times can show you the greatest
record of results of any Washington newspaper, in a variety of advertised products and propo
sitions limited only by the variety of business and enterprises of which the District of
Columbia can boast.
