There was no sink, no sign of a sink, but earnest search revealed a pail full of tea leaves, potato parings, and refuse hidden behind a packing case. Evidently this must be my portable sink.

The salty, ocean breezes and healthful climate, coupled with the rich grazing, give Nova Scotia wool a quality which is not found anywhere else. Nova Scotia wool is perfectly blended. It is soft and smooth, yet staunch and strong. .It can be spun like silk and wears almost like steel. Garments, knitted of this fine wool, give the desired warmth and are not heivy or bulky. It is no exaggeration to say that the Stanfields get the pick of the Nova Scotia wool. The founder of these mills did much to'develop the sheep-raising industry throughout the Maritime Provinces. The farmers saved their best wool for him, and continue .to send their high grade wool to the Stanfield mills. Then, too, this .wool mills in the best possible condition. There are no long railroad journeys in the holds of tramp steamers. The wool is shipped direct to-Truro as soon as sheared.

Underwear is made by the only process which.takes the shrink out of the wool before the garments are knitted. The value of this by the founder of the Stanfield shown by the growth of this business, which is now capitalized at and employs over 300 operatives. Stanfield's Unshrinkable Underwear is made in 3 standard weights, Light (Red Medium (Blue Label) and Heavy (Black Label) and in 17 other weights and qualities to suit the requirements of every man and woman.
