HOW MODERN PLUMBING , AND HEATING
' ADDS TO HEALTH AND COMFORT OF HOME
? No" greater progress has been made along line of ac-
, Uvity having for its object the protection of health and
eliminating manual labor jfrom the operation of a modern
' home more than that of sanitary plumbing and heating.
The words "Strictly Modern' applied to a building ad
vertisement carries a world of meaning. They carry the
thought that we are still but a few steps removed from
conditions inimical to health and comfort, and that such
conditions regarding plumbing and heating, still exist to
such an extent as to make their absence a matter of spe
cial notice. The desirability of modern conveniences in
plumbing and heating is so great that it, is all important
for the health anJ safety of. the family that it be done
by experienced people. --
' it is as important thajt your plumber be skilled in the
principles, of-his eraft as that your doctor understand
your health problems committed, to his care. Those who
- employ T- M. Barr to do their plumbing are assured that
the installation will be fully up tohe highest standards
of modern sclentnc plumbing and heating. ' "
In . the line of modern heating apparatus Mr. Batr
manufactures in his establishment a heater which he very
properly has named the. "Economy -Heater.":-. It. is made
for either steam or hot water" and its construction is
such as to produce the' maximum" of heat and comfort
in the rooms'from" a minimum consumption of fuel. In
addition to the- Economy furnace of - his own manufacture,-
Mr. Barr carries in stock the famous Areola furnace
made by the American Radiator company. ; ' :
