J. H. FOREMAN,
11th and Jefferson.
Spring is here and we hope that
all of the performers have had a
good season thus far and have been
able to save some money as well as
make some. This season of the year
down in this section of the country
we are beginning to have real warm
weather, and performers usually get
a kind of a lazy feeling, with an in
clination to "lay off" for awhile. We
hope that the opening days of spring
will be an inspiration to save their
money and improve their acts. We
feel that the colored performer has a
distinct duty in moulding healthy sen
timent for the race. By their high
class acts and good behavior they
impress others that we can do this
particular thing well, for by nature
the Negro has demonstrated his
ability in song and emotion.

Just as a good fertilizer nourishes

the hair. QU1NADE stimulates and
nourishes the roots of the hair, there
by causing a healthy growth.
QUIXADE was Invented by a New
York chemist, and is made under the
personal supervision of a registered
pharmacist of over 25 years exper
ience; this Is a guarantee that
QUINADE is as near pharmaceutical
ly correct as can be. The ingredients
are selected with great care, and noth
