The heater arrives arid father proceeds to erect it. After hours of laborious effort he fails and is finally forced to humiliate himself by calling upon the home gas man for assistance, a fact that he failed to consider before sending away his money to the mail order house, but which feature is now deeply impressed upon him. The gas man, upon his arrival, finds a heater identical in appearance 'with his offering but vastly inferior in material and workmanship. He recog- rnlzes it as a "second" or ''third," points out the shortcomings of the imperfect heater and shows the victim wherein the mail order concern misrepresented the merits of the construction.
