In these days of shoddy goods. wren the u;:. .s arc trying to see, not how good, but how cheap thev can make their cloths, the woman who wants to color over her old clothes h3 to be specially careful in select ing her dje. Cotton is a vegetable fibre and wool an animal fibre, and to get satisfactory colors on cotton or mixed goods, it ie absolutely neces sary to have a different dje from that used t j color woolen goods. The great success of Diamond Dyes in coloring cottcn and mixed goods comes from the fact that they have rpccial dyes for this kind of work that can be relied upon to make col ors that are fast to sunlight. Some dyes claim to color both cotton and wool with the eame dje, bnt when ated on cotton or mixed gocds and exposed to the light, the result shows the falseness of their claims, for the colors coon fade out and become din gy, while if the Diamond had been used, thoy would not havs lost their full, rich, bright shade. Diamond Dyes cost the manufac turer and dealer more, but the prion to the nser is the eame, which is why some dealers occasionally try to sell cheap imitations for the sake of a littla more profit. The result is a loss to their customers, for the Dia mond are the only package dyes on the market that can ba relied upon to always give fast and beautiful colors that are true to name. Use nothing but Diamond Dyes if you want success and satisfaction. ABBREVIATED TSLE3R1HS. Tn some part nf Africa slaver, arertill the basis of financial reckoning'.
