I^ARH HOUSING • fy JIM POOL ,/' ' - ''.BOISfORD LUMBER CO. Septic tanks an? one oC the most important improvements that have come to the farm home. As one manufacturer of a well-known brand oC clay -tile tanks and pipes puts it, "A 'septic tank -makes a dwelling linto a home." I w^is quite impressed with what one farm woman had to say about the septic tank as a modern convenience. "You and I," she said, "Can think oC a hundred ways in which modern improvements have turned hard tasks into easy ones; yet I do not believe that out of all the changes on our farm in the last ten years, .there is any that has been of greater benefit to me and my whole family than the installation of our septic tank. I hate to look back now to -those days when we didn't have the tank; when we had '.to carry every pan and bucket of dirty water to the back porch, and empty it in the back yard; when we washed every day in a hand basin, and once a week took a bath in the kitchen 'm one of our wash tubs; when we put up with a foul outdoor toilet because we didn't know of any other way. "Well, one summer we went to Des Moines to see our boy, who was at Camp Dodge. My sister, who lives in Des Moines, had just moved into a new home, and we .stayed with her. To me, it was almost fun to work in her kitchen with its dandy 'big sink. And her bathroom! After I had used the big white bath tub and the other conveniences for three days, I was ready to admit that city life had its Advantages. "The evening before we left, I remarked at supper Unit I would I'eel a lot more like going back to the farm 'if I could take my sister's kitchen and bathroom back with me. -My brother-in-law spoke right up and said, 'Well, there's no reason why you can't make yours just as convenient as ours. Why don't you put in a septic tank?" We .knew what septic tanks were, but we had an idea they were not practical for the average farm. 'Can you depend on them?' I usk- ed. 'Sure you can,' he said. 'Properly installed, a septic tank will give you the same service as a high-class sewer system, and it won't make a bit of trouble. Ttu-y'rc not expensive, either." "When we got back to the farm," continued this farm -woman, "we talked it over, and we decided that we would put in a tank. Ever since it has been in, we can't see how we ever got along without it. Running water and a roomy sink have transformed my kitchen. I don't spend nearly the time there I used to, and caij give a lot more attention to my garden and my hens. And every woman knows what having a bathroom means! The ibest part of it is that our children are all with us on the farm, even though three of them are old enough now to be out and away. They are satisfied here." If you are interested in a seotic tank, why pot come in ana wlk -it ove, " Mrs. R. I. Simpson was a Tuesday caller at the Eldon Marlow home.
