Collectors troop to toy soldier auctions Humidity affects comfort By The Associated Press Dry throats, itching skin, static electricity, cracking furniture and chronic chills are all common wintertime complaints. These aggravations can often be attributed to low humidity levels inside your home. Low humidity results because cold air, heated to room temperature, has an enormous capacity to draw moisture from every available source — even you. You feel chilly because the dry air evaporates heat-retaining moisture from your skin. By installing a humidifier in your home, you can combat these wintertime annoyances and feel comfortable at lower thermostat settings, according to Better Homes and Gardens Building Ideas. If your home lacks a forced-air heating system and isn't exceptionally spacious, you can add humidity, with a freestanding humidifier. When centrally located, this type of unit can provide adequate humidification. Keep in mind, though, these units have to be manually filled with water. For homes equipped with a forced- air system, a better choice may be to install a power humidifier that connects with supply air ducts. Because these units require no manual filling and have greater humidification capacity, they're usually preferable to freestanding models. All types of humidifiers come with a dial that lets you control the humidity level in the ah*. The settings are calculated for a home with insulating glass or storm windows. If you notice moisture on windows, the humidity level may be set too high, which can eventually cause structural damage to your home. In this case, dial down the control knob and ventilate as much as possible. Hearing Aids IIAU.IOUUCK AMOCO. at a price you can afford Backed by the Reputation of Sears!

Specializing in fitting bras, girdles, mastectomies and prosthesis. Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. By The Associated Press Collecting toy soldiers isn't kids' stuff any more — it has become part of the collectibles craze and the value of some collections is inching toward the $1 million mark. In the last five years collecting toy soldiers has changed from a playful hobby, to a serious enterprise and, according to an article in the January issue of Connoisseur, soldier auctions at Sotheby's, Christie's and Phillips in London and New York play to overflow crowds. The current boom began in 1977 when Douglas Fairbanks Jr.'s 3,000- piece collection of British, French and German soldiers went for $16,000. Today that price would be a giveaway. Last spring the chairman of a Houston oil company paid $300,000 for the collection of a London doctor, and the value of several American collections approaches $1 million. "The supply of these things is limited, and more and more people seem to want them," said H.N.R. Jackman, a Toronto financier- collector. "We've reached the point now where the prices are starting to go through the sound barrier.'' As with all mass-produced folk art, the original items were made to sell for pennies. In this case, only a few thousand have survived the rigors of the playroom. Toy soldiers first appeared near the end of the 18th century as two- dimensional figures, called flats today, made by Nuremberg tinsmiths to honor the armies of Frederick the Great. The French entered the field in the 1850s with three-dimensional figures from Napoleon's Grande Armee. These soldiers, and later ones, were made of lead combined with antimony. In 1892 Britain's, an English toy- maker, began to hollow-cast figures — and undersold the competition by 50 percent. By the 20th century, every European country had its own soldiers. The full-dress British figures were the stiffest. French soldiers were the most artistic, while the clumsy and grim-looking German soldiers were ready for action. Toy soldiers have tended to be popular in war, forgotten in peace. In 1967 Britain's was forced by the high price of lead and a ban on its use in toys to switch to plastic.
