So far, so good ; but what else does it do? It cuts the skin and frets the under-skin ; makes red ness and roughness and leads to worse. Not soap, but the alkali in it. Pears' Soap has no free, alkali in it. It neither red dens nor roughens the skin. It responds to water in stantly ; washes and rinses off in a twinkling; is as gentle as strong; and the after-effect , is every way good. All sorts of stores sell it, especially druggists; all sorts of people use it. Ml m HATS. - MONEY. We are prepared to make loans on improved country or city property at current rates.
