In case the wealth accumlated in the hair-st tighteningg

business by the heroine of this story seems fantast" to you, be

advised that Madam C.J. Walker, the originator, yas aid to have

realized around two million dollars. The Poro /System,that came up

( MadeatMalone, St. Louis, Mo.) exceeded thqke million, and was

then swamped in popularity by the Orch~id Fi stem of Atlantic City,
N.J. It has become a permanent habit, {nd will continue to make

great fortunes, though there are so many systems" now, that no
one will hardly make the large and ikfrue elzdb h

earlier ones. c otns elzdb h
