pectation for the coming treat. Mr.

cation by tho Rov. Scruggs of the Sec

Tho practical demonstrations from
tho sewing and cookery departments
received a deal of pralso both be-'
cause of their novelty and the thor
oughness with which they were car
ried out. The Model School tots were
indeed like fairies ns they whirled
and skipped and curtsied in the
French Folk dance. Tho oration was
full to repletion of tho achievements
of our race in tho- largo cities as well
as tho rural communities and as ono
listened to tho splendid delivery, he
could but be Impressed with the mag
nitude of the Race's accomplishments
In this stato. The duet was particu
larly pleasing each song showing to
good advantage tho rich contralto and
sweet soprano of the Brown twins.
The drill conducted by ono of our own
boys was a revelation of our military
training and tho hoys showed great
promlso in their evolutions. At this
juncture President Richardson briefly
addressed tho gathering. His talk was
sprightly but pointed; witty and yet
pungent with meaning as to our
hopes, aspirations and strivings.
Thero were facts rropared about tho
Colored man in Missouri that called
for attention; there was a plea for a
chanco for the Negro; thero was grati
tudo for tho help already received and
thero was a promise of greater things
to follow on our rart If given a chance
to an opportunity to develop unham
pered tho best thero is in us. The
speech was well received and quite
evidently made a profound impression
upon tho auditors. The music of the
evening was quite good, indeed, the
chorus, orchestra and octette each
rendering every creditable numbers,
The program ns a whole was so well
received that by special request It will
do repeaieu Marcn 11.

Beauty is Only Skin-Deep
Your skin either makes or breaks
your beauty.
A sallow, blotchy skin spoils any
beauty, while a fair, smooth com
plexion is all most women need to
make them beautiful.
You can make your skin shades lighter,
and ns fair and soft as velvet by applying
Dr. Fred Palmer's Skin Whitener. After
a few applications, all blotches and pimples
will disappear, and your skin will become
fair and lustrous.
You can keep your skin white and beau
tiful by bathing your face, neck and hands
each night with Skin Whitener Soap.
These two old-reliable preparations,
when used together, have never failed to
make the darkest skin fair and beautiful.
