"JlMELY^ H AVE YOU A "HARD TO HEAT" ROOM? -- In your home-- a bedroom perhaps, or attic or basement playroom? You can now end this discomfort with a modern ' Electric Radiant Heater. Two minutes after you plug it in, this good looking, compact little heater brings warmth and comfort with its penetrating sun-like radiant rays. It costs very little to have this added warmth, where and when you need it. See them at the Peoples Gas Electric Co. Y ES! P O T T S HAVE "SPODE"-- The Bride's Tablewear for nearly two centuries. You'll enjoy see- i n g t h e l o v e l y Spode patterns at W. H. Potts, J e w e l e r . . . and think of it! A 32 piece service for eight f o r as little as $18.10. Every item in every Spode pattern is always procurable to replace or increase your service. TN KEEPING WITH THE J- MODE--For Early American furnishings--you can buy Fostoria glassware to blend perfectly with t h e f u r- nishings of your home. * Do see this b e a u t i f u l glassw a r e at the Iowa Tea Company. They are sparkling reproductions of Colonial pieces embodying every recollection of the days of our forefathers--yet designed to complement the most modern table setting. There's a wide choice of pieces to choose from--glasses, of all types-plates, bowls, and serving dishes. Best of all, this glassware js not expensive, considering its beauty and quality. « Y OU'LL BE NEW IN PRINT--You'll be ever so smart if you read this little message of mine anJ then dash down to D.' K. Lundberg's . and get yourself a ' new print frock. You'll love it--the designs have the brightness you want under dark coats-they're colorful and still not too much so for mid-Winter wear. New fashion details are an added attraction, and the fabrics themselves are heavy enough for right now. Youlll find all sizes there for 99.95 to $19.95. May they "See You Tomorrow?" D ESIGNED TO FLATTER --Well, vanity does create a desire for flattering footwear, and you'll notice that shoes from t h e B. B. Shoe Comp a n y do just that. T h e y r e - flect a r t - istry of design, clever mate r i a l combinations and colors, fine quality and perfect fit. You'll prefer their shoes, once you've worn them. Try on this shoe sketched if you want something extra chic --the built up instep is a new trend in footwear--and a comfortable one. $5.00. Y OUR BEST GIRL--Your, sweetheart, w i f e or mother, would feel like a Queen if every week a fresh box of flowers would ar- r i v e f r o m Johnston's Flower Shop. By placing a standing order for flowers to be delivered weekly -- twice a month or monthly--you "say it with flowers," and your message is there before their eyes to be remembered constantly. Special prices for standing orders on all flowers in season. Do it now. W HEN YOU BEGIN HAVING--Housemaid's knee, fallen arches and a bad case of hangnails--it's just about time to call on the Lyons Launder e r s a n d D r y Cleaners to help you out. In fact, you should have done do earlier as they will go a long .way towards helping you in your household cleanliness. Get the habit of having them launder your ^curtains, bedspreads and washable rugs. They are such a task to do at home while it's no effort to simply call 600. I 'M SHOUTING--As usual, about the care we women should give our faces. So many of us are downright lazy and how the neglect does show up! It's a habit--but daily and nightly care can become a, habit, too--and t such a delightful and easy one, if you use Carleton Toiletries from the. Michael Drug Company. Carleton Toiletries are a very fine line, very attractively boxed. Cleaning cream, turtle oil cream, nourishing cream, skin freshener, foundation cream and face powder--and imagine--each article only 39c! Start the Carleton habit today and chase your wrinkles away. C AN YOU TIE IT?--Or maybe all of your ties are old and dull--dark, drab ones that don't go with your new suits. But w h e t h e r y o u need some new ..ties or not, stop at Gildner's. You'll find yourself growing enthusiastic o v e r them--for they are beauties -domestic and imported silks -crepes--foulards a n d m o i r e s . When you go in to buy one you'll be .sure to come out with half a dozen, for they are that good looking. 65c to S2.50. T HE SKINS YOU LOVE TO TOUCH -- Can be found in every one of the beauteous fur coals the Mason City Fur Shoppe is now selling at ridiculously low prices. Every coat is reduced to prices you can't afford to overlook. Persian L a m b , S e a l , Broadtail, · Caracul -- all the furs you've seen, envied and wanted are there, in styles that are advanced enough for the next two years.
