heaven.

OSWEGO STARCH
(FOR THE LAUNDRY^
T-TAS established a greater celebrity thai
■" has ever been obtained by any olhe.
Starch.
This has been the result of its marked su
periority iu quality, uud its invariable uni
fortuity.
The public may be assured of die continn
snce ol the high standard now established.
The production is over Twenty Tons daily
and the demand bus extruded throughout tin
whole of the United States, uud to foteigt
countries.
Working thus on a very large srale, am
under a rigid system, they are able lo secun
a perfect nud uniformity in thaqualily tnrongh
out die year. This is the great Desideratun
in Starch-making, uud is realized now fot
the first time.
The very best starch that.can be made,an,
no other, is always wanted bv consumers,
and while this will be supplied to them by
die grocers, as soon as their customers have
learned winch is the best, and ask for it—
■ otherwise they would be likely to gut tha
article on which lite Urged profit can be
made.
Mr. Kingsford lias engaged in the
manufacture of sturch continuously for die
last 27 years, uud during Ihe whole of the
period, the starch made under his supervis
ion lias been, bev-oml any question, the best
in the market. For the first 17 years, lie had
die charge of the works ol Wm. Colgate &
Co., at which period lie invented the process
of tiie manufacture of corn starch.
EST Ask for Kiugrford't Starch, as the name
Oswego has recently been taken by another fac
tory.
T. KINGSFORD k SON'S
OSWEGO CONN STARCH,
(.For Puddings, fyc,)
Has obtained an pqual celebrity with their
Starch for the Laundry. This article is per
tectly pure, and is, in every respect, equal lo
die beet Bermuda Arrow-Root,-besides hav
ing additional qualities which render it inval
uable for the dessert.
Potato Starch lias been extensively packed
and 6old as Corn Starch, and has given false
impressions to many, as lo the real merits ol
our Com Starch.
From its great delicacy and purity, it is
| coming aho into extensive uso as a diet for
iniants and invalids.
