Colorful ad for President Suspenders and Ball-Bearing Garters, suggested as an appropriate Christmas gift. You can buy the kit in a Combination Box illustrated with a picture of actress Julia Marlowe, as Juliet (in "Romeo and Juliet"); lines quoted seem irrelevant to suspenders or garters. You can also get Viola Allen as Viola; Edith Wynne Mathison as Rosalind, or Maxine Elliott as Portia. Someone at the C. A. Edgarton Mfg. Co. thought Shakespearean actresses would be a good sales tool. From the October, 1906 issue of AINSLEE'S MAGAZINE.
