The Genuine and the Sham
Evc-y good thing hss its host of imi
tators; every genuine article its counter
feits. The imitators always cboose the
most valuable and popular article to
counterfeit, so that when they claim their
sham to be equal, or as good, or the same
as "sc-and-So s, the public may depend
upon it that "So-and-So's" article Is the
best of the kind. The sham proves the
genuine merit of the thing it copies, and
never has this been better illustrated than
by the imitations of Allcock's porous
Allc ick's porous plaster is t'ae standard
of excellence the world over, and its im
itators in their cry that theirs is "as good
as Allcock's" are only emphasizing this
fact acd admitting "Allcock's" to be the
acme of perfection, which it is their
highest ambition to imitate. Tbe differ
ence bat ween the genuine and these imi
tationf, which copy only general appear
ance, is as wide as that between copper
The only safe way for purchasers is to
always insist upon having Allcock's por
ous piasters. They are the only perfect
plasters ever produced.
