themselves no dressing. Heimstreet's Inimitable Coloring not only restores hair
to its natural color by an easy process, but gives the hair a

An Invention of Rare Merit!
LONG WANTED, AND FOUND AT LAST! A KEROSENE LAMP CHIMNEY, EASILY CLEANED, AND
WHICH WILL NOT CRACK OR BREAK FROM SUDDEN CHANGES OF TEMPERATURE.
The CHIMNEY in common use breaks
from unequal expansion and contraction, caused by the upper portion becoming
much more highly heated than the lower portion. This constant liability of the
Chimney to be broken by being suddenly cooled or "over-heated," is entirely
removed by a unique and beautiful invention, BROWN'S METAL TOP LAMP CHIMNEY,
which, being made in accordance with the simple law of expansion and
contraction, is found to be almost "fire-proof," as far as heating by the flame
of the lamp is concerned. The clear, positive superiorities of the NEW LAMP
CHIMNEY over the old style, are:
1. It will not crack or break
from sudden changes of temperature, or "over-heating."
2. The top can be instantly
removed, and the glass wiped perfectly clean in a moment without wetting.
3. It is shorter than the common
chimney, therefore less liable to accidents, and more convenient for carrying
about the house; it is of elegant proportions, and a decided ornament to the
lamp, which will be found to burn with a clear, steady, and beautiful light. It
is really the ideal of perfection in a lamp chimney, and after using one for an
evening you will wonder that you could so long tolerate the old expensive style.
A "BROWN'S METAL TOP LAMP
CHIMNEY" IS WARRANTED, with ordinary care, to last just as long as the lamp on
which it is used. Price (with a small neat shade for common size), Zinc top, 25
cents; Brass, 31 cents; Silver-Plated, 50 cents. Dealers will be furnished, per
Express, with a sample box containing one half doz. Chimneys assorted styles and
sizes, with circulars, colored show cards, price list, &c., on receipt of $1.25.
Brown's Metal Top Lamp Chimneys are manufactured only by the
