the trunk gave on seeing her.
She went to tho snmo dormer which

of the window for some time. Then,

"I don't care!'" she nnnounccd aloud.

For three generations Fruit of the
Loom muslin has been a trusted friend
in thousands of American households.
Women using it for their white sewing
have learned from experience how well
it wears, how fine and smooth its finish is,
and that after washing it; looks as well as
the day it was bought.-
Now this old friend can be had in a
new form. Leading manufacturers are
making up Fruit of the Loom muslin in
such articles as nightgowns, nightshirts,
pajamas, sheets and pillow cases, men's
and boys' shirts, and handkerchiefs.
This moderately priced muslin is excellent
for children's clothes, aprons, niehtgowns,
men's shirts, and all other Garments that need
to be made of a strong, durable cloth that will
launder easily and well.
It is worth your while to ask for Fruit of tho
Loom in ready-made articles as well as when
buyine by the yard. Look for the label.
