I'll bet you that you nnd I are pretty nearly the only two
women in tins town wno would say "no" it tneir
husbands asked them if they wanted any new furniture or
rugs. Are not our husbands good to us just to give us all
the things we want for our homes and to encourage ua in
getting them. This makes us feel like cheerfully enter
taining their friends which helps them in their business.
I consider a beautifully furnished home a paying invest
