IRON . * • Heating & Plumbing Dam' What Comes Natcherly The boys down at the newspaper phoned me last week and said they were going to print a real whooperrdooper of « building section in the paper. Th»y said they would welcome a erat.e or two of my good writing on any subject, just so long as it was Plumbing and Heating. The idea behind this effort, as I get it, is to point out some of the reasons why we can and ought to get more homes .in Algona. Everybody knows the crying need for same. Well, on went my thinkin' cap, and what I have writ here is what I came up with. Anyhow, talking Plumbing and Heating "justjcomes natcherly" to us out here at Irons. . We are .going to get a little more serious in pur column this week. In view of the fact there is some pretty goocl stuff on "What About Home Building in Algona?" in these pages, we are even taking a larger space this week. We are "doing it to give you Irons' ideas on the plumbing and heating situation, as) it pertains to home building foday. «* Plumbing and heating installations h.r/e always been costly items in building a home. Now there are some good reasons for Jhat. One of the^ main ones is not so much the cost of material and fixtures, jas jn the labor done on the site,. In normally constructed homes, where much of tjje work is hand-tajlored on fhe site, good planning can save a lot pf dollars for the home builder. We want to make plain that we consider the planning of a plumbing and heating installation just as important as the actual work. In njpst cases,, it js possible to save cpnsid- erably. ; . > ••'•-."- * Now a few words about:what to expect today. The plumbing and heating materials situation is very favorable to building., today, that is, .in securing them"! It .is best to allow a reasonable time to get the materials together,, but, Irons' we have 'been' able, of late, to get eVerr many scarce'items without "foo" much difficulty. While steel pipe is slow in filming, copper is readily available/ arid soil pipe is loosening up. We might say we are getting enough right along' to handle house installations. Plumbing fixtures are continually being improved. We have a good many oMhem here at Irons' for your inspection. Toilets are quieter and easier to clean. Shower stalls are getting popular. Bathrooms should be designed to handle the many items- an average family manages to pile jap in this room. Many bathrooms are now being equipped with germicidal lamps for clean- , . llnes5,^Medicme_cabmet8^are' alsojbeing bjuilt in, in the wall next to the bathtub 1 . 1 ? v surprising the .number of women who like to put on, or removeTosmeticTin the^ bathtub. It's important/too, to know that in a wood constructed hou'?e,'''a" bathtub will generally settle, leaving an unsightly crack between the linoleum, tile or plaster and the edge of the tub. 'in making installations, we like to jjjap^ against some of these small but mighty annoying and eventually costly jtems. ' v - •'.''• . ,-•••'''.'"."..>..

Furnaces of all types are available, and it is wise even for, owners of old '^ homes to consider-now-the wisdom of installing a.furnace that does not eat' fuel, whether coal or oil. • . * - ' ' i Here are spme of the famous makes of plumbing and heating' items you find at Irons'.
