than one-half of our lives in bed rooms? Wo ought to
have them pretty. What a joy to turn down beautiful
covers, to repose on a, comfortable mattress, to sink your
tired head into a downy pillow! What a delight to awak

dressing table and primp! Cheerful bed rooms will make
every member of the family retire happy and awaken with
energy and delight.
