Even the rumors that Mrs. Fau

It is true that many of her admirers
in Pennsylvania and other states
where she has been speaking this
year have expressed a desire to see
her in the national, law making

A Prominent Business
Woman Praises Mme.C).
Walker's Preparations
"I use Mme. C. J. Walker's
preparations exclusively be
cause I get results from them
that I am unable to get from any
other preparation," stated a well
known business woman the
other day.
The secret of the remarkable
success of Mme. C. J. Walker's
preparations is in the fact that
they were blended by the late
Madam C. J. Walker to reach
certain definite conditions of the
hair, skin and scalp, and today,
after over thirty-five years on
the market, they are growing
increasingly popular, and not
withstanding the fact that the
Company has always refused to
reduce the price on these goods,
they are still in demand every
where.
Mme. C. J. Walker's Glossine,
although more than thirty-five
years on the market, is still the
leader in its field. The reason
for this is because it not only
serves as a scalp oil, but it gives
the hair that silky sheen and
natural gloss that is the delight
of every woman.
Mme. C. J. Walker's Brown
Face Powder is not just another
Face Powder, but is the result of
years of experimenting to pro
duce the perfect blend to impart
a velvetlike softness and at the
same time cooling and refresh
ing. Just the thing for these hot
days.

derful preparations are sold by
