And grant unto a swain forlorn
A real Thanksgiving day.

The Best Man Who Ever Lived
used to say th.it it was womans lime and slrctigtlt the
sight of pieced bed clothing annoyed him, because in the
eotttillcss stitches laketi, it represented so much of womans
strength and vitality, and with ihe demands upon her, in
the care of home, the bringing into the world and the
retiring of children, he claimed that her time would httvc
beeil belter employed had she been only resting,
1 wonder how many of its ;tre awake to the fact that
there is so called economy which is reckless extravagance,
and that lavish expenditure in some particulars, means
close economy ill more important ones.
The woinaii who,-, kitchen is supplied with the latest
and best labor stivers which is our Klectric Cooking Stoves,
Witter Heaters, Klectric Lights. No lamps to lill and clean
every day, no smoke absolute cleanliness from the begin
ing to the ending, also our Klectric lions und I-'ans an-the
more faithful exponent of economy than is slu- who
drudges along in the old way making her our pair of
hands do all the work, which our convenient Klectric
I Ieating devices and out small Klectric Motors can be used
for Sewing Machines, Churns and Washers and fol other

thus be prolonged .no! home made fat happier.
