Indianapolis First —
YOU remember the hot days of last
summer when suffering humanity
all over the country pleaded for
relief and large cities everywhere were
experiencing terrible Ice famines? In
dianapolis alone had no shortage. The
large supply held by the Polar Ice and
Fuel Company could have been sold and
shipped at a larger price than that paid
here. No babies suffered —no food per
ished —no hospital went without ice In
ndianapolis on account of lack of ice.
Foresight and a willingness to gamble
ith the weather precludes the possl
lity of an ice famine in Indianapolis.
\Ve now have twenty thousand tons of
ice in storage. We know this is more
than we will need, but it is there for
your protection in case of an emergency.

Statement Issued on Killing
of Sir Henry Wilson by
DUBLIN. June 24.—80th the regu
lar and Irregular branches of the Irish
Republican army today disclaimed any
connection with the assassination of
Field Marshal Sir Henry H. Wilson
at London.
The following statement was issued
at the headquarters of the irregular
“The shooting of Sir Henry Wilson
was not done at the instance of the
Irish Republican army. If It had
been, the Irish Republican army
would acknowledge the fact.
“The death of Sir Henry Wilson is
to be deplorqd, not because it occurred
apparently at the hands of Irishmen,
but because he was a victim of the Im
perial policy pursued by the British
Government In Ireland. There Is up
use trying to saddle the responsibility
on Ireland or any group of Irish peo
ple. It would be hypocritical to con
demn such actions as the shooting of
Sir Henry Wilson, while the causes,
which provoke such deeds, remain.
"Scenes of outrage and carnage in
the north are the result of British In
stigation, British connivance and Brit
ish duplicity. In all this Sir Henry
Wilson played a part that time will
define. And he played It not for
Ulster but for his imperial masters.”

Purely from the standpoint of cost, what do you
think of this home washing business? We’ll leave
out the disagreeableness of it!
Wbat does the home washing cost? We can't tell
you. You can't tell without putting in a cost ac
counting system. But our guess, based on all the
facts we can obtain, is that washing done at home
costs two or three times what you think it does.

Go down into the cellar tonight and make a price
list of all the laundry equipment, not only the big
items like the washing machine, but everything,
right down to the clothespins. Total it up and figure
the interest on your investment. Then estimate de

Find out about how much supplies like soap,
starch, and bluing cost per week. Put down an
amount to cover gas and electricity. Make an allow
ance for repairs to machinery and for clothes lost or
damaged. If you employ a laundress her wages,
meals, and carfare must be counted in. If your wife
does her own washing her time and work should be
put down as worth something.

Very likely your wife is one of the thousands of
Indianapolis women who are convinced that the
standard modern laundries of this city are doing the
high quality of work that good housewives insist
These women have discovered that good laundries
treat clothes just as gently as they can possibly be
treated at home; that they get things beautifully and
hygienically clean; that their scientific methods
actually prolong the life of garments, and that they
are responsible business institutions in case of loss
or damage.
* * *
Very likely your wife would like nothing better
than to end the work and worry of wash-day if she
didn’t fear that it would cost too much to "send it to
the laundry."
It doesn’t cost too much. For most people it costs
less than the wearisome old-fashioned way. There
are different classes of laundry service. Pick the
one which fits your case—and save money.

-I- apolis with the advantages of modern, scientific laundry service
as rendered the following standard laundries of this city: Best-
