The Old Way 


N the early 50's John Harding, 
then ekeing out a bare existence 
on a stony hillside farm in Ver- 
mont, began to feel dissatisfied 
with his present condition and 
surroundings and conceived a strong desire 
to join the ever increasing stream of settlers 
turning their faces toward the West. 

After weighing carefully the advantages 
and disadvantages of such a step, he and his 
wife finally decided to cast their lot in that 
land of promise, whose beauty and fertility 
was then the subject of many wonderful tales, 
and loading their few personal belongings 
into a heavy covered wagon drawn by a team 
of slow plodding oxen, John Harding turned 
his back on the old familiar scenes and started 
for that distant country, determined to win 
a home and competence from the wilderness. 
On a beautiful afternoon in hazy Indian 
Summer, we find them stopping on the shore 
of a small lake in the heart of what is now 
the most fertile section of Michigan, and next 
morning the sun. rising over the tops of ma- 
jestic trees, displaved to John Harding and 
his wife a scene of such wonderful beauty 
and bountiful vegetation that they decided this 
should be the end of their journey, and on 
the shore of this lake should stand their future 

Before the first snow fall, they had man- 
aged to erect a small cabin with a lean-to at 
the back to shelter the oxen, and with a plen- 
tiful supply of logs at the door, an abundance 
of game in the surrounding forest, they were 
prepared for the long, cold months to come. 
By laboring incessantly during the winter 
and following spring John was able to clear a 
small patch of ground, thereby gaining a foot- 
hold to insure a food supply for the next year 
and the entering wedge to future affluence. 
The following summer a son, John Hard- 
jr., came to brighten the little cabin, 
and in a few short years he was able to assume 
his share of the work in the fields. 

During the time that had elapsed 
since the Hardings blazed the first 
trail into this section, many other 
families had followed until in John's 
twentieth year it had attained the 
dignity of a "settlement." and the men 
had united in building a new school 
which, of course, must be dedicated 
by an evening's social entertainment. 

Tke Modern Way 

HEN young John Harding set out 
for the social that night, little 
did he dream that this would be 
the turning point of his life, 
and never again would his little 
world seem just the same. 

Dancing with Molly Kent, a laughing 
black-eyed maid of eighteen summers, he sud- 
denly realized that something had changed, 
although he knew not what and from that 
moment he became a man, with a man's hopes 
and ambitions. 

In due course of time, Molly Kent became 
Mrs. John Harding, Jr., and the young couple 
settled on an adjoining section of undeveloped 
land, their hearts full of undaunted courage 
and determined to win a home of their own. 

At the beginning, John Jr., was, of course, 
content with the same methods of farming 
used by his father, and others of the com- 
munity, but gradually new and more efficient 
machinery and equipment was coming into 
use. The horse had gradually replaced the 
slow plodding ox team, and the reaper had 
made its appearance. 

As the years rolled by, Fortune smiled on 
John Harding, Jr., and in time his model 
farm became the pride as well as the envy 
of the entire community. 

The big red barns flanked by huge silos 
could be seen for miles around and in the 
implement shed stood an up-to-date binder, 
mowing machines, farm tractor and gang- 
plow, and every other practical and efficient 
machine tending to reduce the labor or ex- 
pense of farm management. The barns were 
equipped in every way to reduce labor to a 
minimum, and in the garage stood a high- 
powered touring car, from which John Jr., 
and his family had derived many enjoyable 
evenings after their hard day's work. 

Meantime a son, John Harding, 3rd, had 
been born to John and Molly and had grown 
up among these surroundings, a 
typical, straightforward young 
American farmer. Cards were 
now out, announcing his approach- 
ing marriage to the daughter of 
his father's closest friend, and 
after many conferences between 
John 3rd. his father and mother, 
it was finally decided that the old 

Modern Tract 

John Harding Jr. takes a bath 

people should purchase a home in the nearby 
city and leave the farm to the young couple, 
for while the father was still a comparatively 
young man. they could well afford to retire, 
and the hard work had left its mark on the 
once beautiful Molly Harding, so that she was 
aged beyond her years. 

The change was made, John having pur- 
chased a cozy little cottage in the city, situated 
on a quiet street and with a small plot of 
ground, while John 3rd and his bride were 
settled on the home farm. 

Now the young Mrs. Harding had received 
a different education and had absorbed new- 
ideas giving her a broader outlook than was 
possible for women of the previous genera- 
tion, and she quickly learned that something 
was radically wrong with the management of 
this so-called model farm. 

Looking after the house, laundry and dairy 
was an arduous task, in fact almost a physical 
impossibility, in place of pleasure as it should 
have been, and she saw for the first time the 
real reason for the tired droop to Molly 
Harding's shoulders, the deep care-worn 
wrinkles in her face. Mrs. John 3rd neg- 
lected her work that afternoon and spent the 
time in deep study, for she knew this situation 
was due to lack of thought on John's part, 
and determined on a complete transformation. 

Looking back to the time when John Jr., 
and Molly Harding had first started to win 
these broad acres from the wilderness, she 
could see that in striving for an end and the 
means to attain that end. they had lost sight 
of the real goal for which they had been 

To make a home or the means to provide 
a home is the underlying motive behind prac- 
tically every human endeavor, and by this is 
meant not merely a house in which to live, 
but a "home" in every sense of the word. 

The old house they had built a few years 
after their marriage still stood without any 
change, except an occasional coat of paint 
and while labor-saving machinery and devices 
of all kinds had been in use on the farm 
for a number of years, no improvement of any 
consequence had been made in the method of 

When John came in from the fields, her 

John Harding III, takes a bath 

plan of action was mapped out, and when he >TT 
was settled for his evening smoke dreaming 
of the future and evolving wonderful visions 
from the fragrant smoke clouds floating lazily 
ahove his head, he was brought suddenly back 
to earth by: "John, don't you think we ought 
to have a new house?" 

"Why, dear, I can't say that I had ever 
thought of it very seriously, but perhaps in 
another year or two we can if you want it." 

"I do want it very much, but not in another 
year or two. We should start it right now." 

"But Helen, you know we have no money 
to build a house. It is true father gave us 
this farm and all the equipment, but when it 
comes to ready cash we are mighty shy." 

"John, this is not extravagance, I am asking 
for. It is merely to have my end of the farm 
put on an equal basis with yours, to have 
our home equipped with modern conven- 
iences and labor-saving devices the same as 
your barns, granary and workshop." 

Seeing that this argument had made an 
impression and taking advantage of his silence, 
she hurried on : 

"You say we have no ready cash, but surely 
you could raise a loan on the farm large 
enough for that." 

"Mortgage the farm! Helen, you don't 
realize what you are saying." 

"Indeed I do, and if you will consider it 
from my standpoint, you will see it is not 
only reasonable, but just and right. If your 
father with the poor equipment he had to 
begin with has been able to pay for this mag- 
nificent farm, keep it under perfect cultiva- 
tion, stock it, purchase a complete line of high- 
priced machinery, and at the same time accu- 
mulate sufficient surplus capital to support 
himself and your mother in comfort feu- the 
rest of their natural lives, why should we fear 
to face a comparatively small debt to secure 
a new home?" 

"You certainly are a convincing talker, little 
girl, but we will think it over for awhile "~ 
before doing anything rash." 

Being a wise little woman, she did not press 
her advantage, dropping the subject at once,

ut neither did she intend giving it up and 
started next day writing fur catalogs, showing 
house plans, modern home equipment, etc. 

When these arrived, she spent many happy 
hours poring over their pages, selecting, plan- 
ning, rejecting, until she finally decided that 
the "Shadow Lawn" in the Aladdin catalog 
should be their future home. 

It was a trifle larger than she had origi- 
nally planned, but now the campaign was 
really launched, she decided no half-way 
measures would do, and what a beautiful 
picture it would make nestling in that grove 
of maple trees, making a gradual sloping lawn 
down to the very shore of their little lake. 

Having decided on the house, the balance 
was easy, for she merely wrote Aladdin stat- 
ing the design she had chosen, asking for 
more complete information in regard to ma- 
terial, time required for building, etc., and 
upon applying this to local prices, taking 
into consideration the fact that the lumber 
being cut-to-fit, John and the hired men could 
do a large part of the work, she found the 
entire cost would be considerably lower than 
she had imagined. 

Her delight was then unbounded, for she 
turned to Aladdin's Home-Craft Market 
Place Catalog with the feeling that she could 
allow her taste free rein in choosing and 
planning the modern equipment. 

Finally her list was complete :

Labor for Erecting, Painting, Etc.

Electrical Fixtures 

Bathroom Outfit

Laundry Tubs

Total, $2,350.00 

Armed with this and the knowledge that 
she still had her trump card to play, she fol- 
lowed her husband out onto the porch the 
next morning as Ik- was starting for the field. 

"John, have you thought any more about 
the building of a new house this summer?" 

Modern Sanitary Kitche 

"Yes Helen, I have, but in the first place 
we haven't time now to finish it before har- 
vest, and furthermore I cannot reconcile my- 
self to placing a mortgage on the farm." 

"Look this list over, and then look at this 
photograph of the house and all the articles 
I have chosen to go with it. You see it is 
an Aladdin, so that we can easily have it com- 
pleted before harvest, and it seems to have 
been planned purposely for that Maple Grove 
over there fronting the lake, on the very spot 
where your grandfather erected his first log 

"Look at the matter from my side, John, 
and try to feel that I am not urging you to 
do anything but what is right and for our best 
interests. Look at your mother, John, a 
woman who should now be in the prime of 
life, but with bent shoulders, her face 
wrinkled and careworn, her health broken, 
all because she and your father did not see 
what 1 am now trying to show you. Don't 
let me follow in her footsteps, John; give me 
at least the same consideration you do your 
hired men in providing them with modern 
machinery for tilling your fields or in caring 
for your stock." 

Over John Harding's mental vision flashed 
a picture of the mother he had known as a 
boy, beautiful, laughing, black-eyed Molly 
Harding, the life of every country gathering, 
the pride of her husband and an object of 
worship to her only child. 

Dazed, he turned to Helen and then swept 
her into his arms, murmuring unconsciously 
"Poor Dad! he never knew, and now it's too 

After a few moments of tense silence he 
held his wife at arm's length and said with 
a smile breaking over his face — "You win. 
little girl, and now skip in the house and get 
ready for we are going to have that order on 
its way to Bay City before night." 

In due time the new home was ready for 
occupancy, and it seemed even prettier than 
the picture Helen had formed in her own 
mind. However, her chief pride and the part 
which meant more to her was the modern 
and efficient arrangement for plumbing, heat- 
ing and lighting. 

The Old Wa>) 

The Aladdin Waj) 

Unsanitary Pantry 

FTER everything had been moved 
from the old house and all was 
arranged to her satisfaction, she 
took her husband on a tour of 
inspection of her end of their 
"model farm." 

In the light, airy kitchen, a white enameled 
sink, refrigerator, range and completely 
equipped Kitchen Cabinet replaced the old 
rickety table, inconvenient and unsanitary 
cupboard and cook stove, while in one corner 
stood the range boiler ready to provide an 
ample supply of warm water at all times. 

The bathroom was spotlessly clean, with 
its rich, snowy-white fixtures and through- 
out the whole house, the lighting fixtures 
added the finishing touch and were so arranged 
as to give the best possible results. 

However, the basement was the pride of 
Helen's heart, for in this and the kitchen she 
expected to spend a large portion of her 
time, doing with ease and pleasure the tasks 
which had heretofore been a burden. 

The corner underneath the kitchen was 
given over entirely to her laundry and here 
was placed the handsome set tub equipped 
with both hot and cold water faucets with a 
trap underneath leading to a drain under the 
floor. Another corner was partitioned off for 
a fruit and vegetable cellar while on the op- 
posite side stood her cream separator, churn, 
etc., which together with the Air-pressure 
water system and lighting plant were driven 
by a small gasoline engine. 

In the center of the basement stood the fur- 
nace, with the fuel bin at one side and this 
they knew would prove a great comfort in the 
cold winter months to come. 

Returning to the living room, John settled 
back into the deep upholstered rocker that 
had been one of her purchases, and a look of 
deep contentment came over his face. 

Looking up into his wife's eyes, he smil- 
ingly said, "Mrs. John Harding, 3rd, you are 
a wonder. How did you ever plan this so 

Bending over, she whispered softlv, "It is 
easv enough, Dear, if you let Aladdin help

LECTRIC LIGHTS are no longer a luxury, they are a necessity. Just as much as an 

E\ education, or up to date machinery, or an automobile. 
) Last year over a quarter of a million automobiles, with self-contained electric lighting 

/ system, were bought by farmers and business and professional men. This year it is estimated 
( that one half million will be bought by farmers alone. The half million farmers must learn 
to operate these lighting plants, and require about a half an hour's instruction. 
You will want electric lights in your house as they are just as much a necessity as 
modern plumbing. They are safe, clean and cheerful and will give you a pride in your 
home and the same distinction that you feel in owning a good automobile. 

The Aladdin Electric Lighting Plants are of just the same high quality as the most expensive plants made, 
hut we have simplified the design to the last degree and by manufacturing them in large quantities are able 
to sell them at very reasonable prices. 

The size of Plant that you will need depends upon the number of lamps to be supplied with current 
and how often vou are willing to recharge the battery. 

Mnst people like to have a plant that does not require recharging oftener than about once a week. 
Generally speaking the No. 3 riant has plenty of capacity for any average home of from eight to ten rooms, 
including also the barn, garage, pump-house, etc. Users of this plant recharge their batteries about once every 
10 days on the average. The No. 2 is suitable for a smaller home or a large house where not so many lamps 
are burned at one time. The No. 1 plant is for a small cottage. 

Here is a convenient way to determine the size plant to use. Take the 3-hour capacity of the bat- 
tery and divide it by the average number of lamps you expect to burn and the result will be the approxi- 
mate number of days you can run without recharging. This is of course only approximate but ordinarily 
is a safe way of figuring. To get this more accurately, you must know just exactly how many lamp 
hours you will use per night (lamp-hours is the number of lamps multiplied by t he number of hours 
they .ue used) and divide this into the lamp-hour capacitv of the plant (u*e the eight-hour capacity in 
sixteen candle-power lamps and multiply it by eight.) SPECIFICATIONS AND PRICES ON NEXT PAGE

Showing the "Aladdin" installed in our house, the "Portland." 

Costs Less than a Base Burner 

IN our "Aladdin" pipeless furnace, we arc offering the very latest departure in warm air heating. The principle 
is positive. Cold air is taken through three 8x10 inch registers, placed in the base of the jacket which goes around 
the furnace proper. The heat is forced upward through a large 14xl!0 inch register placed directly over the fur- 
nace. Through this register, the hot air passes with great force to the ceiling and circulates from there to all 
rooms of which doors have been left open to be heated. The warm air will be so evenly distributed that you will 
And a variation of less than three degrees between the room where the register is placed and the room farthest 
away from same, providing of course, that doors connecting these rooms are left open to give a free circulation. 

Simple and Easy to Install 

To give an idea of how simple an operation it is 
istall one of the "Aladdins," we show a cross secti 

install one 

view of our house, "The Portland." with the furnace 
installed. We call your attention to the fact that there 
are no large warm air pipes to destroy the usefulness 
of the basement, no wall pipes or liftings to be installed. 
In fact, any man who is so inclined, can install this 

furnace, do all of the work himself, and the whole 
operation should not take more than four or five hours. 
The register must be placed directly over the furnace, 
and the furnace shoujil be placed, as nearly as possible 
in the center of the basement. You take no chance 
when you order an "Aladdin." We guarantee it for 
3G"> days, one full year.

N our Sovereign Vacuum Sweeper we offer th< 
very best bargain in high class sweepers on 
the market. A most practical machine at an 
extremely low price. When we started buying 
vacuum sweepers and reduced the price on a 
standard made machine from $12.00 (the orig- 
inal price) to $6.75, we considered that we 
were doing a pioneer work in lessening the 
cost of an article which was to become a 
universal household necessity. Then with 
placing larger contracts, we found it pos- 
sible to reduce the price to $5.40, then to 
$4.50; and now we offer the same high- 
grade standard made sweeper, which 
less than two years ago sold for $12.00, 
for only $3.75. 

This machine carries our 
binding guarantee of " 'Satis- 
faction or your money 
back." We assume all of 

the risk. You must be satisfied with your 

purchase. Send your orders early, advise 

when and where you wish the Sweeper 

sent, and we will make shipment 


The case is finished in mahog- 
any, equipped with a 
double bellows and heavy 
brush. Price is F.O.B.
