Dr. Deimel's Linen-Mesh
D elm el.
The name of a physician who
for years has been perfecting
a fabric for undergarments
which we can now pronounce
the most sanitary and com
fortable of any garment made
to be worn next to the skin.
For the same reason that a
linen towel is used to quickly
dry one's face after washing,
a linen fabric is preferable
to all others for the absorp
tion of perspiration.
This word describes the
weave of the fabric, which is
necessary to secure the rapid
dissipation of the moisture,
which the linen quickly ab
sorbs. We invite patrons
to call and make a full inves
tigation of tbe claims of

hurt, bat it was thought he would re
caver till a short time before he died.
