Diamond Dyes the Only Home Dyts That Cc me in Special Colors for Cotton and Mixed Goods. When yon want to dye cotton, or materials composed of wool and cot ton or cotton and alia:, be sore, to use tho Fast Diamond Dye special colo'B for cotton and mixed goods. The use of Dyes that claim to color all kinds of materials with the one package will only canse rnin and disappointment. Cotton is a vege table fibre and requires a special dye entirely different from the dye that ii needed ta color an animal fibre like wool. While the imitation dyes that elaim to color all kinds of ma terials with the one package may give fairly satisfactory results on ribbons and small articles, yet for carpet rags and for dress goods or jackets, and in fact any of the usual jobs of dyeing, they simply stain the cotton part and give a streaked or spotted color that will quickly fade ont when exposed to light. Diamond Dyes have 16 special laat colors for cotton and mixed goods that never fail to give satisfaction. They cost much more to make than the imitation dyes, and hence the dealer has to pay more for them, bat the priee to the user is just the same as lor the cheap dyes that have to make deceptive claims ia order to sell their goods.
