After the prayer by Bishop Greer Thomas Hastings, of Carrere & Hastings, the architects of the building, delivered! the keys to the care of the city.

Any invention that saves time and labor is bound to come into universal use. Witness the sewing machine, the telephone, the electric light and scores of others. They were received with doubt at first; now every intelligent person takes advantage of them. So Fels-Naptha soap will some day be used by every woman in this country who washes clothes. More than a million now make it save them time, bother and hard work, and the number is grow ing every wash-day. If you are not one of these million modern women, you will be some day just as soon as you have courage enough to break away from old-fashioned methods. Every week your delay means another half day of backbreaking labor, coal or gas wasted, danger of colds from steam, unnecessary wear and tear on clothes. With Fels-Naptha you can wash in cold or lukewarm water without hard rubbing, and in half the time it takes by the wash boiler method. Follow closely the direc tions on the red and' green wrapper. No Imitation for Anty Drudge. Grocer's boy "The boss told me to tell you he was just out of Fels-Naptha, but that this soap is just as good, and he's sure you'll like it." 'Anty Drudge "Just out is he! Well, he's going to be out some more. If he thinks I'm going to use an imitation of Fels-Naptha, just so's he can get a big- .ger rake-off, he's got another think coming. Some other grocer will get my trade in the future."
