You can never appreciate the worth of a
hot water bottle until used in some time of
need. Heat helps almost any pain, is often the
only remedy required and with a hot water
bottle you can have continuous, even heat for
hours if necessary. It helps to cure toothache,
earache, neuralgia, cramps, etc. And at this
time of the year it is worth many times its cost
as an antidote for those disagreeable bedfel
lows, cold feet. It pays to get good ones. They
outlast two or three of the poorer sort. Here
you get the good kind at' the prices ordinarily
asked for inferior goods.
