You cannot divide your time between this fascinating little
mortal and such irksome and health-destroying tasks as washing
without depriving him of the care and attention he needs.
Be fair to the Baby. Delegate the family wash to Jones’
Laundry, and devote a fair portion of your time to Baby. Give
attention, fuss over him, do the little tasks for him that are
such a pleasure to a mother.
After he is asleep in his little crib tonight, sort and bundle up
the family wash. In the morning call up 66 on the phone. In
a few minutes the washing is out of your house and your mind
at ease. In three days it is returned wholesome, pure and
clean, and you have had the house and Baby to yourself, and
then note how much more fascinating the Baby appears.
Phone 66.

For Christmas
A Handsome Smoking Jacket will be
the “handsome thing” to give to him this
Christmas—he’ll probably not expect it,
but will certainly receive it with grati
tude. If it’s for husband or brother then
it will keep him home o’ nights.
You’re sure to'get a good one if you get
it here—one that will serve for a long,
long time and not early show its age. His
size is waiting—waiting and anxious to
serve.
“SHOP EARLY” IS THE SLOGA
HERE THIS YEAR.
