Such an occurrence in; August is very- uncommon. 'Only standing grain in the area 'covered will be. greatly fected, and fortunately nearly all the fall wheat has been cut and some of it stacked. The most serious results to the town will be from the de- struction of the gardens. Most of these are very badly cut and the effect on our Show will be sad indeed.

That's the real test for When your furnace is not in use, the cool, damp air in the cellar, coming into contact with'the steel or iron 'dome and radiator, causes the metal to "sweat." This or moisture, attacks the metal and quickly makes it rust. It's 'an actual fact that most furnaces would give TWICE as many years of service if they did not have their long summer vacations but were in use continually. However, the Sun- shine furnace is now equipped with a Nickelled Steel Dome and Radiator. Nickelled Steel is an ex- clusive McClary inven- tion. It has been subjected __________ to the most severe tests and has demonstrated it is absolutely rust-proof. It does not gather rust during the "idle" summer.
