YOUNG MAN SETS EXAMPLE
TO THE RACE.

I Mr. Thornton Littins, the
seventeen year old son of Mrs.

mention this week. We are
proud of Mr Littins as he has
fought hard and nobly to win
what recognition he has se

the young man because of his

ed. Mr. Roy Washburn of the

whose very temper
ment bespeaks congenialty
and sunshine, has taken a
I deeper interest in the boy and
I promoted him to clerkship,
where he has full charge of
the store during his employ
ers' absence. He has prom
ised him if he can increase his
business $100 a month he will
give him $100. Think of that
for encouragement!!. The
young man of color has ac
cepted the offer and has Eu
gene Baxter as his assistant
and the young man is working
hard day and night to get the
$100. His example has shown
that fidelity to work, consid

terest and honesty, will pay a
great dividend in honor and
substantial reward. The Star
is proud of the young man.

Why The Negro Oppeses Segregation,
Discrimination and Injustice.
Whither Are We Tending?
I or the same reason that anyone else should oppose it—
self-interest and human welfare. Because the Negro would
uke the future of his race and posterity to be secure from
"ant or fear of want. Because deep down in our hearts, con
sciously or unconsciously, we believe in love and justice, and
kindness arid hate injustice and' contumely' Because we
| want the best of everything and would get it if we were able
and knew how. We would like all children raised up
under the best condition for producing character, education
and health, instead.of competing with persons whose con
ditions borders upon crime and ignorance: in fact, where our
children could have every advantage that the children of the
most favored could have regardless as to race. Because we
t like to live in a society where none could profit by wrong in
struction and deception. Because we like to live in a society
where every citizen has to be useful and loving as the only
.way in which he can get a living; where enough physical work
for to give them a healthy body would be a neccessity, where
; none could shirk their duties without greater pain than the
| pleasure in shirking. Because we like to have our children
! as well educated, dressed and trained as the children of any
(other parents: because we like to get away from the fear of
(the future for our dependents: because we like to travel and
see somethihg of the world we live in: because we like to get
something out of life for ourselves and our children, that is
now curtailed and withheld.
Because even if we have money, good character and are
ambitious we may die in want, or be compelled to leave our
property, family and all because of the race prejudice, hate
and injustice, which makes uncertainty tag our every moment
of our lives; it even rises with us in the morning, follows us
all day, comes home with us in the evening and sleeps with
us in the bed at nighty Because like to live_in a nation
Where the ablest would be puHnSSces where they could do
'the best social service; where money, color or race could not
I put inefficiency in command; where no pull but merit could
j advance a citizen. Because we like to live in a nation where
-the cities are or have been built by experts in each occupa
tion, where the streets are or were the finest that science
could devise, where the houses were the best and symetrical
that architects could work out and where any family could
live as good as the best today according to their respective
circumstances. Because we like to live in a nation where
all children are shouting their joyous way to school instead
of being put in the treadmill of economic necessity, and in
stead of being made to feel they are unwelcome guest;
where the school buildings are the finest in the land instead
of being some discarded, delapidated building or store room:
where the appliances and equipments are the most modern
and scientific, instead of being out-of-date and second-hand,
having been discarded by the favored class: where the sur
roundings are the most beautiful, suggestive, sanitary 7 and
healthful, instead of being in a part of a city where conditions
are most favorable to and savor of crime and immorality.
In fine, because we like to live in a nation, a state or a city,
where all children and persons can and do enjoy life, for life
today gives the Negro little or no satisfaction, because it is
one injustice after another and the full joy that should ani
mate every human being from the cradle to the grave is not
present and because of the segregation, discrimination and
injustice, anxiety invades every h.ime, sits about every hearth,
walks with us on the street, accompanies us at our daily oc
cupations, and destroys the full ioy of living, which is and
has been divinely intended to be the natural heritage of
every sentient thing.
FINE TRIBUTE TO THE WORK
OF HAMPTON INSTITUTE.
How Its Foundsr Foresaw Value of
Vocational Education.
That Hampton and Tuskcftee schools
for negroes arc valuable not merely ns
excellent schools for the colored race,

the present vocational education move

States bureau of education. In a
pamphlet Just distributed by the bu

tribute is paid to the work or Hump

Armstrong, its founder, who Is looked
upon by educators as a pioneer in the
field of practical education.
“General Armstrong possessed tea
remarkable degree the gift of educa
tional prophecy.” asserts Pro feasor

pamphlet. "He foresaw and foretoM
with extraordinary precision the tend

which are distinctly helpful to those

practical education have proved to be
right, not merely for oue race, but for
mankind generally.

MME. CRUMMER'S GREAT BUSINESS SUCCESS
Only Business Woman of Color On Principal Street.
Has Made Good From Small Beginning.
Among; the various occupa
tions and vocations in life
chosen to gain livelihoods,
none has such an intricate
and complex study as that of
producing a healthy scalp
where baldness predominated
before. Nothing is more hu
manly and gratifying in all
arts than this art of taking the
human head and making the
impaired sickly, inefficient and
diseased scalps yield a luxuri
ant growth of hair and no
thing is more pleasant to the
artist than to impart this
knowledge to others, so that
humanity in general will be
benefited. Madam Crum
mer after years of self -sacri
fice, hard work and persistent
study, not only possesses the
art but imparts the knowledge.
Her daily experiences have
taught that civility and pleas
ing disposition with its warm
welcome attributes were not
only the essentials of great suc
cess, but that they were for
tunes of themselves and that
he who has these qualities in
perfection, is- almost-sure to
get on, where without it, even
men of great ability fail. Hav
ing been endowed with this
gift of a pleasing personality,
so tactful and responsive, an
essential which has contribut
ed so much toward her suc
cess, the Madam easily chose
for her life work this delicate
art. Taking the diseases of
the scalp, which are often the
punishment for neglect or ig
norance of conditions, that
have been apparent for years,
Mme. Ada Crummer has
made these a careful study,
which fact has enabled her to
compound her wonderful treat
ments that cleanses the scalp,
destroys dandruff germs and
all scalp diseases, prevents
the falling out of the hair, re
invigorates the roots of the
hair, rejuvenates the scalp
j and causes it to take on new
life, besides producing a beau
tiful growth of fluffy, silken
glossy hair—the object of ad
miration of all —and those
who desire that knowledge
should make application to
to learn the secret prepared
especially for that purpose by
this renowned scalp specialist
This is an age filled with dis
coveries and inventions in
which art and science are
agents of construction and
restoration of the health of
the human body, as well as of
the scalp.

men, conduct what isacknow.

Five Cents a Copt.
Science is not only reaching
up among the stars, handing
down to man definite and cer
tain knowlege of their size,
kind, density, atmosphere, or
bite and other attributes of
the solar system; but it is del
ving into the bowels of the
earth bringing the hidden se
crets cf the darkened recesses.
It is diving into the depth of
the mighty oceans bringing up
to the surface and sunlight the
-treasures of knowledge that
have lain for ages midst the
sea weed and shells. It is ex
ploring flowery fields of the
world,and from every herb is
gathered some valuable me
dicinal ingredients—all for
man. Her research and her
discoveries have given the
Madam a keener insight into
the art of treating the scalp
and teaching its mysteries.
Mtne. Crnmmer has recently
returned to this city, after
more than two months’ busi
ness-trip to Chicago where she
was sent for to teach her
special mode of treating the
scalp specifically. Her treat
ment and teaching was a
grand success financially and
otherwise Mme. Crummer
expects to respond soon to a.
call from Aurora, 111,, where
she is wanted to teach and in
troduce her mode of treating
and curing the scalp of its
many diseases.
Thus it is that another of
Denver’s artists has won for
herself, by her superior know
ledge, industry, courage and
push, an interstate reputation
as a scalp specialist, who has
made large financial returns.
Mme Crummer -vill conduct
her usual business at her Fif
teenth Street parlors, where
she will be assisted by Mrs. R,
K DePriest, the apt student,
who so successfully conducted
the business in the absence of
Mme. Crummer. A special
offer is made to all who want
to learn the art of treating
the scalp specially as taught
by Mme. Crurpmer at her
parlors, from 9 a. m. to 6 p.
m. and at her rooms at 2509
VVelton street, between the
hours of 7 to 9 p. m.. and on

achievements.
