If you have Coo*oleum on your floors, you can ran a mop
over them and they will be cleaner than any raepc floor.
Congoleum is waterproof right through—water cannot injure
it. Compared with printed linoleum, Congoleum is more
durable, more attractive, more waterproof, yet the price is
leas. Congoleum requites no fastening—any one can lay k
—k won’t curi up.

The water-proof quali
ties of CONGOLEUM
Rugs make them ideal
for kitchens and bath
rooms where cleanliness
and sanitary conditions
are essential On the

and son-proof. In sit

rooms, halls, bed rooms,
their rich patterns add
greatly to thè beauty of
the home. And if low-
priced rugs are desired
for dining roonL bed

ly what you want and
are a mighty fine thing
How to Lay and Care for CONGOLEUM Coverings
Congoleum should be kept in a moderately warm place 24 hours before unrolling. Don’t unroll when cold.
The floor should be swept clean to see that the surface is smooth and even. Pill in arid# cracks or depressions
Congoleum lies perfectly flat on any floor.
If Congoleum is fastened to the floor it will net give satisfaction, as this will cause it to buckle. Tacks, nails,
brads, cement or any special fastenings, together with their expense and higher, are eliminated when you use
lik e everything Mae tat your horn# which is in eonataat use, Congoleum requires a little attention to insure
the highest degree of service, if such ettentien is given the results secured will be eminently satisfactory.
You srill find Congoleum a high-grade m ateriel—durable, waterproof and rot-proof.
In denning Congoleum, use a mild soap, like Castile, Ivory or Fairy Sony, with lukewarm water—not hot wa
ter. Never use sand soap or any cleansers containing alkalis.
An occasional coat of any good varnish or Liquid Veneer will more than repay for the alight expense by great
ly prolonging the life of the m aterial, renewing the surface and retaining the beauty of the pattern.

WHAT THEY SAY
Th£T. H. Smith Store of Sidney, N. Y., wrote os the following unsolicited letter
regarding their durability test of a Congoleum Rug:
it **ehsre sin is, sorrow
"In February, 1916, Congoleum lint came to our attention, and ao to
satisfy ourselves we placed a rug on the stone walk in front of our entrance
where the travelingjrublic would be obliged to walk over it when on the
street aa well as those entering the store. It has been scraped with s shov
el when cleaning the walk and commercial trucks have been rolled Qver tills
rug and still it is in good condition. We consider it's great wearer.”
Following is * copy of a newspaper article describing the Congoleum durability
test made by a dealer in Jackson, Miss. Read it:
-----„- -"The moot severe test ever given s rug has just been given a Congo
leum Rug by the Heidelberg Furniture Company, when they placed one of
these rugs on the concrete sidewalk in front of their store and let it remain
three months. This rug was subjected to all kinds of weathering. . . .
"Mr. Heidelberg stationed a man in front of the store one half day, and
in this way arrived at the fact that the rug was walked on more than four
hundred thousand times. . . .”
We have received notice from the manufacturer that there will be an
advance in prices shortly and if you need a rug get it now.
