Electric Flatiron is
Now Reliable and a
Jov to the Home
Flvo year ago, when electric flntirons
wens Ilrst placed on the market an
Omaha housewife purchaed on of them
for which shei paid a Koodly price.
The Iron was a failure. Rvory little
while It was necessary to stop Ironlnc
and allow It to heat sufficiently to do
the work. This lasted for about thtro
weeks; then the Iron died a natural death
wouldn't heat at all.
This same housewife went Into one of
the Omaha electrical stores about a year
affo. Sho wanted to buy a flashlight, and
after making the salo the clerk ndeav
trod to Interest her In an electric flat-iron.
She had not forgotten her experience
of four years previous, however, and told
the clerk that sho would never try an
other. Sho had had enough experience
with them and felt certain they would
neither do the work properly nor laat
any length of time.
Evidently the salesman won the argu
ment. The flatiron has now been In use
for nearly a year and Is doing excellent
Thero Is a vast difference between flat-
irons on the market today and those
which sold flvo or six years ago. Thero
Is sufficient heat too that the Iron may
be used continuously. This heat Is evenly
distributed ovor tho working surfaco of
the Iron, In this manner Insuring the
Manufacturers havo so much confidence
In the present day type of Iron that
they arc willing to furnish a guarantee
that their product will give entire satis
faction to the purchaser. In some cases
this guarantee covers a period of ono.
two or flvo years, while on manufacturer
guarantees his iron for life.
These irons aro wonderful tlmo-savors.
They are continually hot and ther Is
no necessity of running to and from the
stove. This fact, together with cleanli
ness, havo caused many clothing manu
facturers to adopt them In their shops,
claiming that the Increaso In the amount
of work accomplished by tholr operatives
have more than paid the Initial cost of
Klectrlo Irons come In Various styles
and sizes, aro attractive In appearance,
are durable and flfflclent. They are well
worth their small cost.
Scheme for Washing ,
Foot Ball Sweaters
Washing foot ball sweaters la not sup
posed to be the easiest task which a
washerwoman can havo handed to her.
Last year a woman In a small collego
town, who had repeatodly been tho for
tunate recipient of aftcr-gamo sweaters,
received four with Instruction that they
were to be thoroughly cleaned and dried
before the "9 o'clock train left."
In desperation she decided upon an ex
periment. Sho bundled' them up and
went to the nearest electric shop and
asked for a demonstration of an elcctrio
Tho four sweaters were tumbled Into
the machine and churned around for four
minutes. They were taken out, critically
aitrve,ved and pronounced perfectly
Out of aympathy for the. task she had
before her, tho demonstrator hung the
sweaters up and turnod some electric fans
on them, and tho drying was completed
bofore the "9 o'clock train left."
Tho same lady Is ready this year at
the beginning of the foot ball season for
anything which coinos- her way. Her
elcctrio washing machine has been paid
for between seasons.
No other method of removing dust from
around the buttons of upholstered furni
ture Is so effective as the application of a
vacuum cleaner. This samo treatment of
mattresses and other bedding Is as sani
tary as It la simple. The depressions
around the buttons In chairs and couches
giro lodgment to germs as well as dust
It Is not an easy matter to clean these
places without loosening tho buttons,
even when caro Is exercised. With the
different tools supplied with an elcctrio
vacuum cleaner, however, the work can
be dono In an Instant, efficiently and
without Injury to the leather or other

To Make Less Risk
With Christmas Tree
"Why not make this a safe and sane
Xran!" asks E. B. Perrlgo, manager of
the J. It. Lehmer company. "It la at es
sential that we protect the home and
safety of life and limb from tho hazards
of fire caused by tho ordinary candle on
the Christmas tree, as It Is to safeguard
them from firework danger on tho
FourthT" continued Mr. Terrlgo. "The
use of electric lights will do away with
an tnis unnecessary risx ana arrora a
more beautiful and satisfactory Illum
ination than the old style."
This matter will be given sertoiis atten
tlon by the authorities In Omaha this
year and less trouble Is looked for
through Christmas fires than heretofore.
