washing particularly disagreeable—
the hot, steaming suds—the muss
and dirt—house upside down—Hub
by gets home to a cold lunch and is
cross—baby cries, etc.
The work o f taking care o f the
family wash is a pleasure to us—
it is our business—we are equipped
for it. Send it to us—be rid of all
the worry and hard work. You
will be glad—the baby will be
good — Hhbhy will smile over a
warm dinner—you will live longer
and be happier.
