for the housekeeper
when Pearline gets left. Take Pearline from washing and cleaning and nothing remains but hard work. It
shows in the
things that are washed; it tells on the woman who washes. Pearline saves work, and works safely. It leaves nothing undone that you want done well; what it leaves undone, it ought not to do.
Peddlers and some unscrupulous grocers will tell you " this is as good as” or “the same as Pearline.” IT'S FALSE,
Pearline is never peddled, and if your grocer sends you something in place of Pearline, do the honest thing-send it back. 263 JAMES PYLE, N. Y.

The soap that clears but not excoriates.
It is a great good to have soap that one can wash with forty times a day, if he has occasion, always with comfort and never with any sort or degree of harm.
Some soaps are slow to get on and slow to get off: they try one's patience so that he never wants to use them again.
Some are quick and sharp; too sharp, they bite; the skin becomes rough and tender. Chapped hands, red face a disposition to chafe, are the consequences.
Washerwomen suffer severely from soaps than such ; indeed the soaps are the same, only one is in cakes and the other in bars. Fine boxes and scent do not make fine soap.
But Pears' is perfect; that is, it is soap and nothing but soap; no fat or alkali in it. The fat is all taken up with the alkali; vice versa, the alkali all taken the fat. And this is supposed to be true of no other soap in the world but Pears'.
Begin and end with Pears'-no alkali in it
