Book cover

First Page:

[This e text comes in three different forms: unicode (UTF 8), Latin 1 and ascii 7. Use the one that works best on your text reader.

If "oe" displays as a single character, and apostrophes and quotation marks are "curly" or angled, you have the utf 8 version (best). If any part of this paragraph displays as garbage, try changing your text reader's "character set" or "file encoding". If that doesn't work, proceed to: In the Latin 1 version, "oe" is two letters, but French words like "étude" have accents and "æ" is a single letter. Apostrophes and quotation marks will be straight ("typewriter" form). Again, if you see any garbage in this paragraph and can't get it to display properly, use: The ascii 7 or rock bottom version. All necessary text will still be there; it just won't be as pretty.

Boldface text is shown with asterisks. The notation [ >] represents the pointing finger symbol.

The layout of the advertising pages is shown after all text, along with a list of file names for major illustrations. Typographical errors in the original, whether corrected or not, are listed at the end.]

New Applicant Do I know how to use Sapolio? Well, that's fresh! Do I look like a girl who don't know about Sapolio? Am I blind, d'yer think, or can't read? Why, the babies on the block know all about Sapolio. What are ye givin' me?


is a solid, handsome cake of House cleaning Soap, which has no equal for all scouring purposes, except the laundry. Perhaps you have heard of it a thousand times without using it once. If you will reverse the position and use it once you will praise it to others a thousand times. Ask your grocer for a cake, and try it in your next house cleaning.

No. 3. [Copyright, March 1887.]
