That's why it's welcome wlierever known. Clothes never rot or hands get sore; for, as an honest soap, it contains no injnrious alkali. Truc economy is in lionest gootls ; buying shoddy isn't a saving. Welcome stands alonc, with inany imitators, but no cquals. Its prize is its vir tuc, and gives wliat soap is made for. Use It costs the grocer niore than any other soap be cause it costs us more to make the best soap than it rosts others to make a ch'japer brancl.
