oil hones. It is six inches in length by one and one
eighth inches wide. Only a trial is necessary to con

stone. A small rubbing stone accompanies it. Also

"J* riySi
Of course these two pieces are not of solid silver.
Neither are they silver plated. Rather they are
made of the same metal throughout, and so large a
proportion of this metal is silver that it looks and
wears exactly like solid silver. In fact it will never
wear out, and being harder than pure silver it will
wear much longer. Both sugar shell and butter
knife are of most beautiful design and are buffed to
a polish equal to the finest Stirling silver.
The two pieces are sent free for $1 on subscrip
tion and 10c additional. The price is sold outright
is $1.
No. 13—Eight Piece Silver Set
This magnificent table set consists of six tea
spoons, one sugar shell, and one butter knife- They
are not plated but made ol a heavy silver composi
tion throughout, and are guaranteed to wear fifty
years, or as long as metal may be made to last when
in use. The design is most beautiful and as the com
position is quite hard it will give as satisfactory ser
vice as sterling silver. Tne Journal can recommend
this splendid set unreservedly as one that will bear
the test of the hardest wear.
It is sent free for $3 on subscription and 30c ad
ditional. The price if sold is 82.75
