Aaatla of Iowa. "Miss Field to ac

for "her to have in at least one

agreed to pay her $65 per month,
tlio highest wages paid to any rural

proof that Mrs. Huftalen is Iow'r
leading rural teacher is wanted I
offer the fact that she was the pri

The Kind thai Will
Serve You Best
They will (lo more than
just keep out the sun.
They will allow perfect
ventilation, stand all con
ditions of the weather, and
will last indefinitely.
This is the one kind that
will fulfill all these require
ments and more—and there
is but one kind.
Vudor Porch Shades Let
You See Out But keep
Outsiders From Seefnn In
Vudor Porch Shades are
made of handsomely stain
ed wood—light, tough,
are bound with strongest
seine twine, which is un-
affected by rain or sun.
They retain their shape and appearance for years. The
ordinary shades are composed of narrow strips that won't
stand a 113' sort of wind or rain, and are held together with
weak, cotton-like strands. Besides, that kind hasn't any
room for air to. enter, or for y-ou to look out.
We shall he pleased to show you our complete stock ol
Vudor Porch Shades any time you request It
Tins won't necessitate that you buy, though you'll probably
decide that way yourself.
