McLoughlin Brothers, 623 Broadway, have recently put on the market an elegant layout for a progressive game of "Tiddledy Winks."  The set is contained in a handsome box strongly made and covered with wine colored moiré paper stamped with gold, and comprised uncommonly beautiful score cards, steel plate, invitation cards, a pretty nickel signal bell, bone chips of the finest quality sufficient for sixteen players, and four "Wink pots" of polished box wood.  This is one of the handsomest and most complete games ever brought out by this house, which is noted for the originality and finish of its goods.  The firm also carriers a full line of regular "Tiddledy Winks" of different games, but all with real bone chips.  In connection with the above it may be said that this house has practically completed its lines of new books, blocks and games, and from the samples shown to a representative of The Stationer it is safe to say that McLoughlin Brothers have surpassed themselves in all of the features for which their goods are famous.
