The Swedish matches, which
can only be lighted by striking
them on the box they come in,
are as nearly safe as any
matches can be. They are free
from any odor, and do not glow
after they are burnt out, as the
"Parlor" matches do.
I have a convenient decorated
china match stand, made to
hold these boxes partly open,
bo that it is at once a match
safe and scratcher. It haa a
fast, square, saucer base, and
the match box and stand com

safety matches. 25 cents dozen
