HERE is a story that has been written for
vou-and other intelligent women who
want less work and more enjoyment in
their homes. You are the heroine. for it is
all about your comfort. your health, your
beauty. your children. your home, and
the work we do in the Institute to help you.
Here are 56 profusely illustrated pages
describing the high adventure of manag-
ing your home and all its exciting possi-
bilities. The story tells of an actual visit
of a Delineator reader behind the scenes
of the Institute. She was so fascinated by
the many surprising things she saw that
we decided to prepare this booklet that
all our readers might know what rich
stores of modern. practical help await
them in Delineator Institute.
The very words of our guest suggested the
title, "Mrs. Jones Discovers the Most In-
teresting Home in the World." You, too,
will discover, when you read the story,
how Delineator Institute is helping you
save hours of labor each day-how you
can always surprise your family and
friends with something new and delicious
to eat-how you can decorate your own
home according to the beautiful rooms
built by the Institute and pictured every
month in Delineator-how eminent au-
thorities help you with the most delicate
problems of child training-how you can
bring your own personal problems to our
Department of Beauty.
This booklet is yours for the asking.

I went out into the garden. All the poor
flowers were blown here, blown there. If it
goes on, there will be no flowers left, I say;
and I pick what I can find, and arrange them
as I of ten do in the vases, to take into the bed-

of courtesy to a dead victim . . .
"I did not suppose that Monsieur Poole
had returned, and Monsieur Paul Slade's

there, after all, and still, as I supposed,
asleep in his bed. So I marched quietly-

the air gave a vivid impression of her stealthy
progress-"and I put down the vase, so, on

YOU'RE NOT A

War should you perform the most un-
pleasant of all household tasks - scrub-
bing a toilet bowl - when there's a
quicker, easier, safer way?
Let Sani-Flush, an antiseptic, cleans-
ing powder, do the work for you. Just
sprinkle a little into the toilet bowl,
follow the directions on the can, flush,
and perfect cleanliness takes the place
of dangerous unsanitation. All germs
are killed, all odors eliminated. Even the
hidden trap, which no brush can reach,
is purified. And Sani-Flush cannot injure
plumbing.
