No one is more welcome than they.

We were using an average of 12 tons ot coal per year to heat our house, and the last two winters we used .a little over eight tons and at the same time the house was warmer. It is especially noticeable upstairs, and we realize now that we were wasting a considerable amount of heat which went up into the attic. We feel the money we invested in insulation was spent. i Yours truly, Mrs. Geo, ft. Wessel, perL. Distributed by Hoxie Fruit Co. Cowan Building Sypply iwiiiiM^
