Sullivan and Jeremiah went to Algona and visited Matt Timely A Topics "Everybody Talks About The Weather . . BUT NOBODY EVER DOES ANYTHING ABOUT IT" . . . .is a saying that is generally credited to Mark Twain, the author of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Actually, however, a newspaperman by the name of C. D. Warner wrote that famous saying in a editorial for the Hartford, Conn., Courant newspaper in 1890. Also, there used to be a saying among housewives that "if you hung a wash out on the line it was sure to rain." Actually, in the 50 odd years since Mr Warner wrote his famous crack about the weather, a lot has been done. For just as the automatic washing machine started to take over wash-day drudgery in 1920, so today the automatic gas clothes dryer is eliminating all the heavy work entailed in drying clothes. Time was when most homemakers trudged up the basement steps with a heavy basket of* wet clothes, stretched a clothesline, stooped over hundreds of,times to hang the wash. More often than not, a storm came up and the homemaker had to scurry out to struggle with flapping,'soggy clothes, carry them indoors, and hang them wherever she could! in basement, kitchen, or porch. The gas clothes dryer takes over this list of heavy chores. As soon as the washing it done, all laundry can , be tossed into the dryer direct from washer. The automatic timer on the gas dryer is switched to the number of minutes of drying time required. From then on you don't have to do a thing. Thermostats control the heat and hold the temperature at the most suitable point. At the end of the drying period, the dryer automatically switches off. The timer dial can be set so that clothes are completely dried for immediate storing or damp- dried for ironing. Anything that goes into a washer can be dried in the gas dryer. White and color-fast clothes can be dried together. Each load in the average washer can be dried as it is washed with the average drying time taking from 15 to 25 minutes. The fortunate owner of a gas clothes dryer finds that her towels don't have to be ironed at all. Their texture is smooth instead of crumply and crooked from line drying. All corduroys, chenille bedspreads, bathmats and most underwear needs only a gentle smoothing with the hand. There is saving in wear and tear. For all the problems of outdoor drying are eliminated — the dust, the rain, sleet and snow, the slipping clotheslines, the soot, the smoke, the neighbor's dog who pulls down a sheet into the mud. We started out with the tcpie of the Weather. Yet to many thousands of gas clothes dryer owners the weather actually isn't the most important part — what is, is that their clones are soft and white and seem to hove a finer texture. Next is the great saving in time, work and ironing. A Gas Clothes Dryer is about one of the easiest appliances there is to own. One can be installed immediately, there is no down payment, and then yaw pey for it in easy amounts right on your regular gas bill.
