Heal your

The Resinol treatment for
skin troubles is not an ex
periment. Doctors have pre.
scribed jt for over twenty
years, for eczema, ringworm,
and similar itching, burning,
unsignuy eruptions.
They rely on Resinol Ointment because it
usually atvps the itching at once giving the
patient much-neqded relief and rest and
usually removes all -trace of the distressing
eruption. Resinol Ointment may be used freely
on even the most sensitive, e .!'., iriitated sktn

Means One-Fourth Off the Selling Price. A Very
Large Inducement When the Discount Is Authentic
Discount is a word much abused. Often the amount means little to the average buyer. To impress upon you
the opportunity that one-quarter off our original tagged prices affords you, you must first appreciate what seventy
seven continuous and successful years as leading Furriers of Philadelphia means.
To you, the integrity and guarantee of an actual one-quarter off is more when proposed by a firm of our
standing than one-half off advertising inducements generally offered. A comparison will prove our contention.
