Store Polish." the Bra marshal of
Wisconsin nays that Bony beastoe
stove polishes are manufactured of
practically tho aaina ingredients, the
only difference being in the esiae and
that all tha polishes are equally haz
ardous. to the put eight years there
have been more than too serious acci
dents In tho Col tad States on aeeouat
of tho nao of tha ban sine stove polish
Dentine polish Is usually found oa
the shelves of tho grocery stores
which hove u their customers the
poorer class of people. This would
appear to be das to the fact that the
over-busy housewife, having In moat
casas no domestic help, ie constrain
ed by force of clrcumotanoee to econ
omise on Umo in every possible way.
Tha benttne causae the polish to dry
quickly, and this feet, of coarse, en
tailing lose work, recommends It to
this clue of household era
We would caitkra all householders
to use only Ore proof store polish,
whether in liquid, powder or paste
form. Alt stors polishes other *hs„
benilne polish can bo safely used, and
Just as satisfactory results can be ob
talned, eapocUUy If a few additional
minutes are given to this doty. Aad
ie It BOt worth our while to derote ■
little attention to this matter aad
thereby sere this enormous sacrifice
of human life? In short, Is it not good
to preach that It la better to be
