Of this brigade of reckless plungers undoubtedly the most remarkable chnracier was the .Maniulfl of Hnstlngsi, whose short life was one continuous romance of the maddest plunging. It could ho said of him that he was a born plunger, for he let no i'veni of note pass without wagering on it. When he was about 25 yonrs of age and at tlic heyday of his career he owned a crack 2-yenr-old fill*' named l.ady I']|l7.abeth. and she was nominated for all the big 3-year-oldK fixtures.

Keener-Smoother-Than Forged Razor Blades Refore the GlLU'",'rTE was invented r:f/.nr hiaiies were ull fc^ged. Thif is, a piece of iiiild steel was heated and hammered otit till it took tlie form of a razor blade. Every heating, every hammering, changed the hr.rdncss of the steel a little-hotv. much, no man could tell, hut more i'n some parts than othefs, because these parts were hammered out more. Naturally, to temper perfectly a blade of such uncertain and uneven hardnesj is impossible. In making G11..LETTE blades we start with an ingot of steel, too fine in quality to atand fnrgins, whoie composition we kno^ by analyais. We roil this out to the. thinness of the finished blade, then stamp out the blades ready for tcniperin^. ^ The composition of the steel is not altered by the rolling and stamping as Jt is by forging, so that each blade comes out not only eren in texture throughout, but of the same quality a� every other blade. As our patented automatic te.mpcring process tempers each blade //iro�f/; (jw^/Arctf^/ii in precisely the same way, the finished blades have an even, uniform hardness which cannot possibly be equalled in ftirged blades. Two of the hardest, keenest, smoothest shaving edges the world has eve.� seen are found on each and every GI1..LE!,TTE blade. Not only is the GILLETTK the safest, quickest, most convenient and only adjustable razor, but it carries the best edge. That is what interests the sliaver most. Standard Sets $5.00.
