We offer the celebrated Electric HYLO LAMP
for sixty-five cents and will allow fifteen cents
rebate for each sixteen or thirty-two candle power
carbon lamp, bearing our stamp or mark, in ex
change for each HYLO.
HYL O - LAMPS
can be changed from one to sixteen candle
power by simply pulling the string. These lamps
have been the greatest benefit in places where
total darkness is not desirable and yet where the
ordinary lamp is too expensive. Just the lamp
for the hall, bath or children's sleeping room,
but most effective in the sick room.

to furnish new clothes for the millions
of soldiers in the war may have to be
seriously considered if the conflict is
prolonged through the winter. Some
of the correspondents are already re
porting that the soldiers' uniforms are
beginning to show wear and tear. It
used to be be'ieved tht a good uni
form should last a campaign. That was
not (he experience of 1ST'. In Decsm
ber, 1S70, German soldiers might have
been seen plodding through the miry
roads in the depth of whiter barefoot,
whilst many had only wooden shoes
and linen trousers. When the 10th
