Every new family that comes to Western "Canada should be users of Royal Crown Soap right from the start. Ask any of the people you settle near, and they will tell you it is the best soap to use. It is specially made for the West. The water in this country is very hard. Royal Crown Soap is made from a special formula to suit this hard water. p Don't begin your life in the West by using any other soap, and thus wasting money and getting poor results.

Don't make the mistake of starting with any but Royal Crown Soap. You will find that your neighbors are using it as they know it is the best soap for use in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Start right away and save your wrappers for premiums. We will send a list of premiums free to any who ask for it.
