Barn we didn't have a radiant home
nt our house for about four hours
last Saturday night la a Republican
and n villain. You we did not
know anything about coal stoves W
filled tho lladlant Horn about half
full of pine fence, and when the stuff
Rot well to going we filled the nrts
1 in well on top with coal. It slmnie
cd nml sputtered about five or
minutes nnd nil went out, and w
put on an overcoat nnd a pair of
buckskin mittens nnd "went out too
to sunner. We remarked, In the
courso of tho frugal meal, that Jone
was a '"frond" for recommending
such a confounded refrigerator for
man to get warm by. After suppe
wo took a pleco of Ico and rubbed our
hands warm, nnd went In whore that
stove was, resolved to make her draw
nnd burn It It took all the pine fence
In Lurcllo. Our bettor half threw
quilt over her, nnd shlvorlngly re
marked that sho never ronlly knew
what solid comfort was until she go
n coal stove. Stung by tho sarcasm
In her romark wo turned every ding
us on the stove that was movable,
or looked llko It had anything to do
with a draft, and pretty soon tho
Radiant Homo began to heave up
heat. It was not long before sho
stuttered llko a new Sllsby steamor.
Talk about your heat! In ton mln
utcs that room was ns much worse
than a Turkish bath than Hades 1
hotter than a cold storage room
The perspiration fried out of a tin
water cooler in tho next room. Wo
opened the doors and frost began to
melt as far up as Dodds' shop, and
people all round the neighborhood put
on linen clothes. And we could not
stop the confounded thing. Wo for
got what Jones told us about tho
dampers and she kept blltng. Tho
only thing wo could do was to go to
bed and leavo the thing to burn tho
houso up If It wanted to. Wo stood
off with a polo and turned tho damp
ers every way, and nt every turn
she just sent out heat enough to
roast an ox. Wo went to bed sup
posing that the coal would eventu
ally burn out. but about twolve o'
clock tho whole family had to get up
and sit on tho fenco. Finally, Wes
Morris, (who was taking his girl for
n ride In his new auto) came along,
He had been brought up among coal
stoves, and he put a wet blanket
over him and crept up to tho stove
and turned the proper dingus, and
she cooled off, and since that tlino
has been Just as comfortable ns poS'

want to learn how to engineer it or
you may get roasted. Luzello Week

NIGHT COUGHING SPELLS
arc peculiar. The cough may not bother you oil day you think you are nil ng
then as soon as you retire coughing begins. Night coughs are easily cured if y"
only have something nt hand. The best thing to do is be always prepared w
a bottle of TARP1NE. You can take an occasional dose right from the bottle
nnd two doses will relieve you so you can have a good night's rest.
