Storm Doors 

WITH coal so expensive and 
hard to get, people these 
days are eager to adopt any 
good scheme of saving fuel in their 
homes. During the last two or 
three seasons more people than ever 
have been using Brantford Storm 
Doors and Combination Doors. A 
storm door in the winter time is as 
essential as a screen door in the 
summer. By making a cushion of 
air between the house door and the 
storm door, the heat from inside 
does not waste away through the 
cracks around the doors and the 
cold winds and snow can't force 
their way into the house from out- 
side. The saving in fuel alone more 
than pays for a storm door. 

Brantford Storm Doors are neat 
looking and add to the appearance 
of any house. They are strongly 
constructed of best quality lumber, 
joints firmly glued and nailed to- 
gether, finished grained quartered 
oak, and coated with high-grade 
weather-resisting varnish. The best 
built storm door on the market.

This man needs a Ventilator in the window. 

SAVES curtains, floors 
and furniture from de- 
struction by rain or snow, 
and at the same time guards 
your health against danger- 
ous draughts. 

The Brantford Window Ventilator 

During the cold windy nights in the fall and 
winter Brantford Window Ventilators are needed 
in every home. They are made to fit in the 
window like a fly screen, but instead of having 
wire cloth they are covered with strong, buff- 
colored canvas cloth, specially treated. This 
lets the fresh air into the bedrooms but keeps 
out the snow, sleet and rain, and prevents 
dangerc^is cold draughts from blowing through 
the house. 

It is a national habit now for people to sleep 
all year 'round with their windows open, and 
with a ventilator in the window they can let in 
lots of pure fresh air without having their floors, 
curtains and furniture ruined by sleet, snow, 
wind or dust. 

Made in four different sizes so as to fit any

THERE is no other 
article on the market 
like it. Made solidly of 
strong, bufF-colored canvas 
cloth, it withstands all the 
weather elements, and is 
good for long service. 

Combination Doors 

THE Combination Storm and 
Screen Door is the best and 
most economical solution to 
the problem of keeping out flies in 
summer and snow and cold in winter. 
One set of hinges and hardware to 
hang the door — and the job is done. 
In summer, the screen panel lets in 
air and keeps out flies. When win- 
ter comes, change the screen panel 
for the storm panel — a half-min- 
ute's job — and the glass lets in the 
sunlight but keeps out the cold 
wintry winds and snow. 

There are four sturdy models to 
choose from — numbers 10 and 15 
are 1}/^' thick, finished grained 
quartered oak, filled and varnished. 
Number 17 is IJ/g'^ thick, made of 
cleau*, white pine, finished light, 
filled and varnished, or in the white. 
Number 18 is the finest combination 
door on the market, built l%" thick 
of clear, white pine, unfinished only.
