"Jap Rose Soap For the toilet and bath

James S. Kirk & Co.

Loved by children

If you could see a chemical analysis of this ultra refined toilet soap you would know why it is always so pleasing and refreshing to use, and why it leaves the skin in such perfect condition.

You would know too, why the children love it. And you would know that it is what its delicate transparency suggests -- PURE.

Roses in the cheeks, flufiness in the hair, fragrant cleanliness everywhere -- that's Jap Rose.

You'll like it.

For seventy nine years the name Kirk has been the guarantee of good soap"
