I wish I had known about these
KRYPTOK Glasses long ago,
This is the remark which is frequently made to us.
KRYPTOK Glasses arc such a wonderful convenience for
near and far vision that everyone to whom we recommend
thorn is enthusiastic over the ease and comfort they afford.
You to, will thank us for calling KRYPOKS to your
attention if you arc one of the many persons who should
wear double vision glasses.
They arc solid lenses with smooth, clear surfaces that
cannot be distinguished from single vision glasses.
We suggest that you call and let us explain the
advanatages of KRYPTOKS to you fully.

Your Facta&y on the Farm
Modern fa are laid out soas to get the most
work done with the least lost motion. The barn ought to
be planned in the same way.
Back hauls and other faults in planning arc expensive.
They make the work more difficult and waste your time
in the bargain.
The farm factory, also, should be large enough to take
care of the produce from your fields. Many real estate
men estimate the fertility of a farm by the size and ap
pearance of the barn. They set the proper valuation ac
cordingly. Command our services when planning your new barn.
