The Handle that Holds the Iron The Iron that Holds the Heat Throw away the old-fashioned irons with hot handles, or the spring handles that rattle loose and come on. UNIVERSAL Thermo-cell Sad Irons are perfect from handle to face. The handle has no spring to become weak and work loose. It is locked by a lever that holds it tight and rigid. To loosen it is impossible except by lifting the lever. The Thermo-cell is an air space around the top and sides of the iron, permitting the heat to radiate only at the ironing surface. This means a cool handle an iron that heats quickly and holds its heat. Various weights and shapes. C. N. Kenyon & Co. , ; I '. i : : : . J Stvles and Fabrics for Spring !

In the February Woman's Home Com panion, a contributor writes a remark able article entitled "Why Fifty Women Do Not Go to Church." Following is a letter from a woman who thinks that her minister hasn't enough ability to preach : "With few exceptions, the great num ber of clergymen I have met or known have been men of mediocre ability without training to fit them to deal with real problems of life. The Bible is usually considered as inspired in every line, without consideration of either the time or circumstances under which it was compiled. In too many of the preachers chnrity is lacking; the God whom they preach is a God of fear, in capable of inspiring love or unselfish de votion to duty.. I do not attend church because I received no benefit in any way. I never felt inspired to worship, simply because I went to church at a set hour on Sunday morning and endured a tire some expounding of the Scriptures by a man who had no more ability than the average layman. I have little respect for the average clergyman) usually he is getting more money than he could get if he had to earn a livelihood." prefer bread that is always excellent, or bread that may be good one day nad inferior the next ?
