' ^'V.*,/^ .*'= 'A Maine* Swea City Items' "IVoris" Ate Volume l- Tuesday, telV. 3, i SINKS COMING IN.... SINKS GOING OUT This is the time of year— just before the approach of Spring—when,it,seems that people start thinking about such items in the house as a new sink, new_ work on the kitchen, painting up and so on. Arid' this lime the'y are really going into action/ because these handsome double compartment flat-top sinks we have beeri getting in, are really going out. People' like these sinks because with very little effort they ^cari be built riglit in as floor type cabinet sinks. Have swinging . faucet, strainer, etc. Be surprised What the addition of a sink lilie this will do for your, kitchen', too. We install 'ern pronto. WATER Another plurrtbing item generally put in' with the approach of Spring are water healers. Gas, coal or oil fired.... Why, I don't, know. Believe if must be because if folks have been without enough good hoi water during the cold'; winter months, they do something about it while it is fresh in their min'ds. We have wfc'ter healers to install, and the cost is quite reasonable. Yesterday^ was "G.ourtdhog Day", you know — and as the saying goes, if Mr.. Groundhog comes out pf his hole and sees' hi's shadow, w;e get six weeks more' of this soothing winter weather. Well, folks, I sat there most of the morning watching that hole' in oUr garden by the shop, and sure enough, along about 10:00 in the morning, when the sun was up, out he came. Took one look, saw his shadow,; and bacl^ .he POP; ped. There you . arel Youf Kossuth _ county 1 people down south — better Wait, a few weeks yet — we won't- have it green for you until about March 10. THROWING OUT THE .LIFE I'M NOT GROWING- But •Mrs, Irons sort of thinks t get puffed up over my little col'um here sometimes, and I know that though she sniffs at my writing, she sneaks a look at it. Well, the other day she up.and told me she thought she'd sell an 8-piece Walnut Dining Suite we have. Wanted to know how to tell folks about it. Well, of course I suggested that she let me write it up in this space. Whuh is what I am doing. It's a genuine walnut suite, nice shape, with all the chairs haying real leather seats. I don't know w_hat price Mrs, Irons is putting on it, but that's up to her. She really doesn't think it'll s^ll from being written up here. I hope I fool her, If there is a reader, who needs something like this, won't you . please call hey up, . and then I can crow again, |We don't know, w.hether. or jnot you' as a member: of this 'community have suffered any from the shortage of oil. Our dealers, we 'know have been making a sincere and fine effort to., keep everybody warm. Perhaps you didn't know, ~ however, that you can get "heat security" a change-over to a coal stoker, • The change doesn't take long, .either. A quality Winkler stoker, such as is pictured here, can- be installed during, the few hours you heed to shut off your . heating plant. You can talk to us about any kind of coal-burning heating plant you want. JUST NOTES- There is a much healthier look to the-supply of plumbing and heating materials that people need for homebuilding. That doesn't mean the stuff is pouring put. of the factories, . No/ .far. frpm it. But we expect to be able to handle a normal supply of heating .and plumbing equipment for home-building. If you have got a dream like t^at,. liet us he}p ypu J erjjoy it By telling what can! be done. 6FTHE first Kid; "Ypu. got a new baby at your house? Where- ja get him?
