We find you can brine out the
beauty of your hair to its very best
advantage by washing it with can-
throx. It makes a very simple, in
expensive shampoo, which cleanses
the hair and scalp thoroughly of all
the dandruff, dirt and excess oil,
leaving a wonderfully clean, whole
some feeling. After its use you will
find that the hair dries quickly and
evenly, is never streaked in appear
ance' and is always bright, soft and
fluffy; so fluffy in fact that it looks
more abundant than it is, and so soft
that arranging it becomes a pleasure.
Just use a teaspoonful of canthrox
which you can get from any good
druggist, dissolve it in a cup of hot
water, this makes a full cup of sham

apply it to' all the hair instead of

To Mothers-
Have you been worrying about keeping the
young folks at home?
Analyze it a little. Almost invariably
when the youngsters go out evenings you
will find they go where there is music
that's what draws them.
Keep them at home by putting a real at
traction in your home. An APOLLO player-piano
will not only furnish music for the
older children to dance and sing, but will
be an inspiration to the little tots inter
est them in music at the most receptive age.
Just as a child will learn French more rap
idly with a French governess in the home,
a player-piano in your home will hasten the
musical progress of your children and en
able them to learn more rapidly.
We would like to talk this over with you.
Your old piano is as good as cash in pur
chasing a player. A visit to us entails
absolutely no obligation. Come in.
Our lines of pianos and player-pianos represent
trie finest, most dependable makes in the world.
