Miss Brown has been' the guest of honor at two showers recently, one of which was given by the girls of the Yonkers Electric Light and Power Company where she la employed. enameled baths alone indicate the tremendous advance Itoward beauty plus utility. Yet once upon a time a plumber lvas only a worker in lead. No one would think of lead plumbing today 1 - ' Related . to the plumbing is the heating system. Many ; : Slid various are the possible methods hot air, steam, hot ' .Water, electricity, or gas. The furnace itself is a fairly recent thing in the history of home building, supplanting the old-jfaihioned hearth. Furnace, incidentally, is traceable to the Latin 'furnus," meaning oven.. . ' Upholstery changes perhaps as often as any other single thing in home construction and decoration. Now it is heavy, then light, then in bright colors, or perhaps, as not so long Ego, dark and gloomy. . The upholsterer used to be simply a tradesman. He was tailed, first of all, an upholder a man who held goods up for ale, like an auctioneer. .The tradesman was not only interior decorator, but Undertaker, too as he is still in some, of the smaller towns ; pf our own day. The ame undertaker meant at first anyone wrho undertook any commission or business' contract, but it has" become rather restricted in popular meaning until today It means almost exclusively the man whose business it is to Superintend funerals. OO T - TAXES AND TASKS Taxes are regarded by most people as tasks, and so they Ire. Task and tax were once upon a time the same word, with Substantially the same meaning. -.Today the meanings arc j different, but since; no one pays taxes as lightly as he buys .candy or some other desired luxury, the feeling is the same. J ; Taxes and tasks are all burdens. A tax, properly speaking; is a levy, usually , financial, f Jtoade by society upon its component members the average i; person being such a member to defray the iexpenses of ! kl..A 1 : is: jthat social organization, including government, education, police, etc. ' ; More' precisely and succinctly, Websters New Intern lional Dictionary phrases it thus: A. forced contribution tof wealth to meet the public needs of a government. The same authority points out that the iord tax can be traced jto the Latin taxare, which means variously to feel, handle, ?! lvalue, and estimate. A tax is an estimated apportionment according to some standard, usually according to value an 4 E&essment. i The word task comes from the low Latin tasca, which i ; Js'also traceable to taxare, the source of tax. An obsolete . ! neaning of the word is a tax or impost. Subsequently the Robert O. Abercrombie, the Misses Edythe K. Field, Helen Foote, Bertha Reljrea, A. D. Fields, Mrs. J. Bauer, Mn. & M.
