"Fancy garters were never so popular, and Nufashond Garters are the last word.

Nufashond, leading manufacturer of garter elastic, has produced a wonderful assortment of beautiful finished garters in glorious colors. Ask to see them at your store. Though bewitchingly pretty, they're modestly priced.

But the beauty of Nufashond Garters is only one of their virtues. Bear in mind that they are made of the famous Nufashond Elastic, which means more stretch and snap and longer wear.

Or you can buy Nufashond Garter Elastic by the piece and make garters for yourself or your friends.

Look for this sign on the dealer's door or window. If he handles the best in little things you can depend upon the quality of all his merchandise.

For 30c we will send you a pair of beautiful Roll Top Garters, made up with attractive ornaments attached, or, for 25c sufficient material for making a pair of garters. Specify color desired."

"The beauty and charm of the right china

The beauty and charm of your dining room can be completely marred by the 'wrong' china! It goes without saying that the china must harmonize.

The simple good taste that banished the plush album and wax flowers from the living room has influenced the dining room even more. The brittle, transient, egg-shell china has given place to the permanent 'smartness' and luxurious grace of Syracuse China.

Syracuse China is too carefully made to nick or crack easily. It stands the wear and tear of constant handling and you never grow tired of it.

Start with as little as you like. You can always match this made-in-America china!

Syracuse China offers a wealth of lovely designs from which to choose, and all are sensibly priced. The china illustrated is our 'Roslyn' patter, one of the many you will love.
