A New Kind of Diamond.
Jas. S. Kirk & Co. , of Chicago , have put up

Soap , a soap adapted to all household uses.
By a happy but peculiar combination they are
enabled to use tar in this soap , and there is no
one that needs to be told that tar is recognized
as the greatest of the healing agents. It also
is recognized for its softening qualities , and
any one troubled with hard , sore hands , will
become enthusiastic over the "Dusky Dia
mond" Soap after once using it. Your grocer
keeps it.

Has the actual difference in the I
way CLOTHING- put up ever oc
curred to you ? If it has not , a visit to
the various places where clothing is
sold will convince you that there is a
vast difference between "slop-shop jl
hand-me-downs" and clothing ( not
things ) made of good material and
nicely put together. Here is where
we have always made a strong point
and the fact that we are selling Men's and Boys' Suits
and Pants , trimmed , lined and sewed equal to any tailor
made suits , at prices as low , and often lower , than the "slop
shop" stuff explains in itself why we are doing so large a
clothing business. We have put forth an extra effort this
spring , and you will find our tables loaded down with the
prettiest line of MEN'S , BOYS' AND CHILDREN'S SUITS
to be found on this market , and if you are looking for good ,
honest goods at the lowest prices , we ask you to carefully
inspect this department. And in Hats , Shirts , Suspenders ,
Overalls , Jeans , Pants , SOCKS , Ties , Night Shirts , etc. , we
have just what you want and at a price that will meet your
Stock of Iron , Lead and Sewer Pipe , Brass Goods ,
Pumps , and Boiler Trimmings. Agent for Halliday ,
Eclipse and Waupun Wind Mills.
