Toilet Sets Are

Excellent Gifts
Smart Men Now Purchase
Toilet Items Together
In the past it has been the habit
to pick up toilet articles at random
and with no particular design. The
trend among smart men today is to
purchase these necessities in matched
sets. This simplifies the shopping
problem and makes for uniformity.
A third advantage is the fact that
sets of this sort make most accepta-
ble presents. An ideal gift is a
matched set, handsomely boxed with
a background of the New York sky-
line, It consists of a bottle of eau
de cologne, after-shaving talc, shav-
ing lotion and a tube of shaving soap.
