Common sense teaches us to handle
only wash materials that nre sub
stantial aud permanent in color and

Percales and Ripplctcs and uever a
single solitary complaint do we hear.
When we buy aprons or house
dresses it is our firm endeavor to deal
with those houses who give us sub
stantial merchandise. The sales we
make 011 these garments convinces us
wc have what is right.
