Why not Home Comfort, too? The largest and mostmodern of office, storeand factory buildings inthe world are warmedby our Low PressureSteam and Hot Wateroutfits. It is becausethe genial warmthyielded puts every bread-winner therein at ease andcomfort for best work. The homecan be made equally delightful for the loved onesby use of smaller sized outfits of American x Ideal il Radiators *-Mboilers The bread-winner thus gets a right start for the days work byrising, bathing, dressing and breakfasting in a cozily warmed house.So, too, an evening in a cold house—no matter how brightly lightedor richly furnished—is a sad climax to the days efforts. Then,there are the vacant chairs in a cheerless room-—the genial, cozywarmth of other places often lure family members away fromwhat should be the place of all places—home. IDEAL Boilers and AMERICAN Radiators soon repay their cost in fuel, labor andrepair savings — and thereafter pay dividends. Their cleanliness halves householddrudgery
