Under tho heading, "Uend Is For

Uurns has this to say:

to give the squares! square deal they

In selecting your Xmas , Pres
ents, let us urge you to select
something of real use ' and real
value, something that you will be
happy to give and others will be
proud to receive. Something that
will always be an ornament in the
home. Something that will not
be forgotten in a day. Some
thing that will show care and
thoughtfulness in selecting. That
something can only be Furniture.
