was covered by her hand, leaving it
the only vulnerable spot on his body.

OUR LATEST IMPROVEMENT
IN BLANKET CLEANING
ABOUT A YEAR AGO we added to our equipment a spe
cially designed machine for cleaning blankets that does not al
low them to SHRINK OR FELT.
We have now added a power Carding Machine for FIN
ISHING them. Until just recently we have carded all blankets
by hand, which made the work quite expensive as well as
tedious, but with the New Power Machine we can do them much
faster, and at the same time do far better work than by hand
The Pantorium is satisfied with a reasonable profit, there
fore we have reduced the price for Blanket Cleaning as follows:
To Clean and Card Double Blank. ta $1.00 pr pair
To Clean and Card Slngl. Blankets SO per pair
You never saw finer blanket work than we do they are
just as soft and fluffy as when new.
MAY WE SEND FOR YOURS?
