in a letter from Clinton writes: "For
six years I was a sufferer from female
troubles. I could not eat. and could
not stand on my feet, without suffer

doctors in the state said I was In a
critical condition, and going down
hill. I lost hope. After using Car

Homes Hade on the Monthly Payment Plan and on Thirty Days' Free Trial
Prominent srientists, prominent professors and able writers hare expressed the belief that the monthly payment plan, as carried on by this
houie and others of its kind, is one of the greatest blessings that has ever been given to the workingman. When asked the reason why
they replied: "It gives him the same luxuries almost that his more prosperous neighbor enjoys, consequently it makes his ambition greater and
his daily life happier." The credit proposition is tae foundation of thij country. It it the foundation of every business house. Why shouldn't it
perform the sauie offices for the workingman? The workingman is really the one who needs it What kind of a man does he become If compelled
to rear Lis family in cheerless and unhealthy apartments? What he -wants is bright and cozy environments, clean furniture, clean household
ooas. a origin nome 01 his on ana a place wuere nis cniiuren may be comrortable and happy. That s the whole story.
Btances a man will work twice as hard and twice as good. We are willing to trust the workingman very willing, indeed,
thing we can to make hia lot what it ougfct to be. No one is barred. We mean this for you.
I'nder such circum
and we will do every-
