"When sending your Clothing to be elenned and pressed have you
ever realized, and every clean minded man would shudder with dis
gust at the thought, that the cloth use to press your suit had just
previously been used to press the suit of a man suffering from Disease,
Filthy Habits, etc. the cloth" in the interim being wet and wrung
out in a pail of probably dirtier water, especially so toward the end
of the day's work? '
OLD WAY OF PRESSING
To overcome unsanitary methods we have installed an up-to-date
Sanitary Steam Press. A garment that passes through this machine
is disinfected, as no' germs or microbes can exist under a temperature
as high as the dry steam we inject. At the same time it removes any
odor, takes away the grimy appearance, raises the nap, reyives the
colors and imparts to the garment that freshness desired by all

Effort Cost Him Much, However, and
It Was Without Great' Pleasure
That He, Learned He Had Been'
. "Fooled, B'Gbsh."'
It was a typical ld-faehloned coun
try store. Tho real natlvo that; goes
with such a place was seated on a
cracker box, clad In the old-tlmo care
less country style. Another ot tho
same vintage was engaging him let
us call him Gray Whiskers In a heat
ed argument on election. The second
man In the course ot h!s remarks
said "ho was nlgh onto eighty years
old" reforrlng with pride to his war
record. (He was mustered out at
"What time does the next train
leave hero for Boston " briskly In
quired the writer. i
"Oh, about two hours or more they'll
be one," said Gray Whiskers.
The writer lost some of hie brisk
manner nnd expressed discontent and
a few other things.
At this point the veteran volun
teered the information that a train
stopped at Sharon Junction in an
hour and the writer might walk there
and wait for it.
"Holy smoke," howled the writer)
"you expect me to walk four miles In
an hour? Couldn't do it."
"Huh, four mile 's nothln'; I've
walked it In three-quarters of an hour
an' I'm eighty years old," boasted tho
"Yes, an' I seen him do it and 111
bet yo he kin do it again," butted in
Well, various remarks were passed
and the writer offered to cover all
bets, but there was nothing doing. It
was two o'clock sharp when the writer
left for the long Journey down the
track; the train was due -at Sharon
Heights about three or a little after.
"I wonder if that old rube could
make it," ho pondered as he skipped
tho ties. "There's Edward Payson
Weston, he was an old has-been. I
reckon IH try to make a little record
The day was fairly cool; a little
of the sun lent. Its rays to -warm the
scene. The sky was blue and walk
ing fairly good. One mllo post after
another flashed by. Feverishly tho
writer gazed at his watch; he was well
Inside the limit. The last mile post
was dancing toward him, but what a
difference In the atmosphere. He was
Stifled with the heat Hat in hand
and coat over arm he sped onward as
if the devils -were at his heels.
At last the Journey -was ended. He
fell into a chair at the station and
looked at his watch once more. The
veteran's record was smashed to
atoms, done in. 35 minutes, and the
station agent there to prove it He
would hand it to those ryubes. Tho
fact that his collar was a shapeless
pulp and his clothes wringing wet with,
tho strenuous effort -was nothing. The
record was broken. That was enough;
A few weeks passed and the Inci
dent was forgotten. Lately, however,
tho writer had occasion to visit Fox
boro again. He went, to the general
store' and sought Gray Whiskers and
the veteran. The proprietor -was the
only one present Triumphantly tho
writer told how speedily he had cov
ered those four miles.
The proprietor blew out a wreath
"of smoke; "an" yo'u took any stock in
tho talk of those two. fellers 7 Why,
they never walked more than 100
yards from this here store in years,"
he said. "An that old veteran he's
nil bunged up with rheumatism. I
guess yo were fooled b'gosh."
The writer took a look at the' time
table; he had an hour to -wait, but
he, took Gray Whiskers' place on the
cracker box and did not try to break
any more recordB.
