Heminway Sewing Silks and M. Heminway Embroidery Silks We have taken tnis make of Silks and snail in ike future devote our energies to exploiting its merits because of the following reasons UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED SUPERIOR QUALITY A muck more complete color assortment than any other make and Because of this Store's steadfast policy of sell ing only best known merchandise,an at prices that are as low or lower than inferior qualities cost. Although the Heminway Silks have for many years had the distinction of being far the best in every way by which sewing silk can be judged, the cost is no more than the so-called "Just as good kinds" or, in fact, inferior makes. M. Heminway & Sons' Sewing Silks are made in 650 shades and tints and this assures, always, a perfect match, overcoming the often perplexing an noyance of being unable to match certain rare or uncommon shades. Cheapness is not one of the qualities of "M Heminway & Sons Silks. Superiority in strength, smoothness, size of thread, colorings, pureness or dye is claimed, ana, when added to full measurement as marked on the spool, it is expected that a perfect silk thread has been produced and yet the price is no more than is paid for inferior brands. The M. Heminway Embroidery Silks are known throughout the whole United States for their superior merits eVe recommend their use and offer in our Art Embroidery department to day complete assortment of Turkish Floss, Japan Floss, Spanish Floss, Rope Silk, Twisted Embroid ery Silk, Japan CJuthne Dilk. The Sewing Silk and Twist will be shown in the Notion department. A single trial will prove sufficient to demon strate the unquestioned superiority of Heminway Silks.
