Commercial fiction in the service of Diamond Dyes; the first 12 pages of this pamphlet tell the light-hearted story of an evident spendthrift who has instead brightened up various aspects of her household with inexpensive, non-fading, non-staining Diamond Dyes. The balance of the pamphlet made up of ads for the dyes and Kidney Wort patent medicine. Attractive color wrappers. Wright III, 2214.
