Why Not Save on
All Your linens?
This linen business has
grown big because of its de
pendable qualities and its econ
omy in prices, and in manage
ment. "I wonder if I can find a
linen table cloth like mother
bought here 15 years ago, just
the spring before I was mar
ried," quoth a bright young
mother with two young daugh
ters by her side, and she added,
"she gave it to me soon after,
and I've kept it as a sort of
heirloom ever since, but I've
used It a great deal and it now
has seen its beet days. I wish
I could get another like it."
After finding the pattern and a
little looking into our records
we found the name of the
maker and were able to dupli
cate exactly, quality, pattern
and all, and made a very happy
