water had receded to an ordinarily
hfeh water mark (23.5 feet) and no fur
ther damage is looked for. While the
loss will reach many thousands of dol
lars, the rrop rty damage will not b? as

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.
