Softer color effects such as give English living; rooms
their pleasantly comfortable air are noticed in these new
est cretonnes.
Delightful flower combinations appear on black, taupe
or beige grounds. One has a marvelous touch of jade
boughs and tangerine tinted petals on black with just
a touch of soft blue to make the composition an effective
whole. A burst of sunshine is a pattern of poppies,
roses and daisies. A gay yellow one portrays Chinese
landscapes and figures with grave dignity.
Many clever American artists are designing cretonnes nowadays
and the manufacturers ehow regard for their art by using the designs
on heavy worthwhile fabrics. Almost any of these new cretonnes
are heavy enough for furniture coverings and for winter draperies.

Universal Asbestos-Insulated
The Universal Asbestos-Insulat
ed Pipeless Furnace' derives its
name "Pipeless" from the fact that
there are no overhead pipes to con
vey the heat to the different rooms.
Instead it has a single register
above the furnace which provides
both the outlet for warm air and
me intake lor cola air. When a
pipeless furnace is installed a cool
basement is always assured, due to
the fact that the entire furnace is
surrounded by a cold air chamber.
Perfect combustion and perfect
circulation greatly lessen the cost
of fuel.
