LOVE SEAT ALSO A BED By pressure on a lever, this love seat is easily turned into a comfortable bed as may be seen in the lower photo. The ends drop down and the cushions build up ends of mattress

COFFEE CAN’T BOIL. There is no danger of spoiling the coffee by boiling it with the new percolator, two views of which are shown at left and below. At 190 degrees, an automatic pump closes a valve so that the water is shut off from coffee which cannot become too strong
