THE CHEAPEST PFiMrnpr.FMFNT and best

The superiority of the Kahn Trussed Bar has never been questioned, so that we can say "cheapest"
and be understood. Considered strictly from a dollars-and-cents standpoint you are losing money by buy-
ing any other bar. Remember that in the Kahn Trussed Bar the shear members are formed from the
flanges of the main bar which are ordinarily wasted,— that you save all of the expense of handhng a large
number of loose stirrups — that you secure absolute safety and strength against fire, shock or careless
workmanship, — tliat rigid connection makes beams 20'/, stronger.

BECAUSE — (1), being without fats or oils, it mixes throughout the entire mass;
(2), it readily dissolves in cold water; (3). it will withstand the heaviest hydrostatic
pressures; and (4). being strongly adhesive, it imparts additional strength to the

American Ingot Iron Culverts
Last Like the ''Everlasting Hills"




An American Ingot Iron Culvert at Sisson, Cal. Mt. Shasta in
the background. There is a degree of permanency about these
culverts which makes this view eminently appropriate.

Durability is the fundamental characteristic of American Ingot
Iron Culverts. They are made from iron 99.94 per cent, pure, and
pure iron does not rust. The greatest service performance is obtained
only in the American Ingot Iron Culvert, because

They resist corrosion

Are unaffected by frost action
Stand up under heavy loads

Will not deteriorate through vibration
Are convenient to handle and install
Are cheaper than any other good culvert

These qualities are guaranteed and vouched for by us.
Write us for particulars and prices.

and now with the positive assertion that
a "Pioneer Roof will outlast two
ordinary roofs. The first cost is little

for roofing of inferior quality. And
once a "Pioneer Roof" is on. there is no
further cost. It requires no paint or
repairs. Address Dept. 23.

"RICHMOND"

Vacuum Cl'^aning
Systeir



LEASE understand, first, that the makers of "RICRMOND" Vacuum

Cleaning Systems are wedded to no particular ty. or form of vacuum

apparatus.

Different kinds of cleaning require different kinds of systems.

Whatever the requirement is, you will find it in the "RICHMOND"

line.
Every provedly successful principle is employed. There- js no attempt to make a
single principle apply to every need.




"RICHMOND" Systems are manufactured under the protection of the Kenney Basic

Patent — and 84 other vital vacuum cleaning patents.

We have in our employ or at our command the foremost engineers in the whole field

of vacuum cleaning — the very men who took vacuum cleaning when it was an expensive

toy and made it a practical utility.

And the whole purpose of our organization is to offer a wide variety of machines —

each machine ensuring the highest efficiency and the greatest economy for some

particular need.

A prominent Boston Architect recendy said:

"Vacuum Cleaiiinj:; is on my list of one of the things which must he
considered in every operation: 1 would no more think of omitting vacu-
um cleanint; than of omittinij heatintr, plumbiiiy, lifflitins; or ventilation. ' '
