It Do not be led swsy by false claims of imitators. No other dyes in the world csn equal the Diamond Dyes. They sre fully warranted to color more goods, pscksge for package, snd give more brilliant and durable colors than can be gotten bv other dye-stuffs. 'The claima cf makers of adulter ated dye-stuffs and of colors that are made np of a very small amonnt of poor dye can only lead to disappoint ment and the utter rain of valuable and serviceable materials. Many women, for the sake of cariosity, have tried some of the imitation makes of dyes, and are now quite satisfied that Diamond Dyes alone are worthy of admittance to the home as true agenta of economv. We say again, do not be deceived by the statements of any dealer: ask for Diamond Dyes and take no other make. Diamond Dyes delight the users and make the family happt.. uncccupied.
