Men of the lowest, grade of morality learn in a few years of 'ss to n'ut lying. 'I'hoy may pos- tho profonruleHt contempt for morals, but, they learn to toll the troth —-in husiriosn. Nearly nl I Hifl ly'"g done by men is to f:nmo woman, or wftmeii. The same lie:, will not work with men. The liar would not a; tempt it,.

HTHREE things to re•*• member in buying silk gloves : 1. Pure silk wears best as well as looks best. 2. Cheap dye injures the fabric, lessens the wear. 3. Get as good a fit in silk as you do in glace or suede, it is just as important. BUT if you are careful to get GLOVES you can forget all these things, because "If it's a Fownes, that's all you need to know about a glove." For one hundred and thirty' one years, one ambition, one accomplishment: to make the best gloves in the world for Men/Women and Children. Never sold under AM/ other name than Fown«s.
