Had they a liner and clearer vision, says the Header, they would see that the ugliness Is in the misuse of tho machine by lnoompetent or careless men and women. The well-made an-J well-cared-for machine has a beauty of Its own that oomes of strength, sim plicity, precision, truth and harmony with the divine laws that control the universe. We may stand beside giant bandaaw while, with screaming clamor, It rips a huge log Into ma terials for a horns. To the clear vision It Is luminous with a strange beauty, a beauty we are only Just beginning to understand. Its brilliant blade flying with Incredible speed Is making a roof tree to shelter a happy mother. In another place we aee a machine whose purring cutters are shaping beautiful white pine moldings of classic form to decorate a home making :i million feet of moldings, all alike. Per haps some sensitive soul cries: "How distressing; so mechanical, so monotu nous! How sad It all Is!' Dear soul! Creep back to your dusty studio. Is ! not better that 10,000 homes shoui-t bare graceful forms on stair and sash and door, than that one home havr hand-made moldings and the other, have none at all T The cutters of this machine can and do accurately pro duce the splendid curves designed by the sculptors and the architects who made Oreek temples glorious. Tbs ma chine Is a missionary of ths beautiful, bringing the best art forma to every home, so that even a door frame may be altogether lovely. Machine mold ings are not ugly because cheap. They are beautiful and cheap. 1 There is no need worrying along la dieoonitort baosuts of a dleordsrsd di gestion. Get a bottle of KODOL FOE urPKPdlA, and tee what it will do for yon.
