I'm Going to Tell You Why I'm Giving
Ply Wife a Hoosier Cabinet for Xmas
Do you know how many steps your wife takes in her kitchen? I will tell
you. Her table is the center of her kitchen work. To that she must bring ev
erything and then carry it all away.
Just look at her now as she works around her kitchen never still, never
stopping, always moving, until vou are impelled to say to her, "Don't you ever
A woman never stops. She can't. There is too much to do. The time
she might spend in resting she puts in in walking back and forth in an in
convenient kitchen, getting things together that ought to be all in one place.
"We can save our wives countless steps by getting them a IToosier Cabi
net which combines cupboard and pantry around a big table covered with
pure aluminum, and puts everything at .one's fingers' ends.
. So my wife gets a Hoosier Cabinet for Christmas. I have thought all"
along I couldn't afford it, but just this week T found an eas' way. The cab
inet will be delivered in time for Christinas. .
And I've Paid Only a Single Dollar
The club plan enabled me to buy the cabinet and have it deliver
ed any time I chose. Then I pay simply-a dollar weekly dues until J",
I have completed the small cash price fixed by The Hoosier Com-,
pany. . : N
My wife has been wanting a Hoosier Cabinet for a long time. Your T
wife has to. Every woman needs a Hoosier Cabinet, and you ought
to get your wife one.
Because It Saves Miles of
Steps for Her Tired Feet
You have your deek and your tools located in a handy way so that
youjean reach for them. You don't have to walk about the shop or of
fice every time you want anything. ,
How about your wife? The more pantries and cupboards you have THE HOOSIER
in the kitchen the more she walks, and the longer it takes. MAKES THE MODEL KITCHEH
Join the Hoosier Club for $1 Yourself
21 More Memberships Left Out of a Limit of 50
When half a million practical women are so .
eager to get a labor-saving convenience that the
output of the factory is oversold year after year,
I know there is something in it. When I see
my neighbors' wives have all of their afternoons
free because they have Hoosier Cabinets, I am
convinced that this article must be something
more than a fad, but I keep saying to myself:
"I can't afford it. The price is too high."
- Then when I read that this wonderful cab
inet is sold at such a remarkably low price be
cause of the enormous output, that I can go -down-
and spend a dollar before Christmas anoV
have this cabinet' delivered Christmas morning,
I begin to wake up."
It doesn't take an expert to figure out why so
many men are joining this Hoosier club. Can
you think of anything easier, or anything more
certain to make a hit with your wife? Go down
to the store, drop a dollar in the slot the cab
inet comes out Christmas morning. Then all
you do Is pay the balance weekly, $1.00 at a ,
time, and the cabinet is yours without you ever
realizing that you have paid for it.
The 50 Cabinets won't last long at this rate.
29 have been taken already, so if you want one,
