MIDSUMMER COMFORTS: why go away to the discomforts of a "summer resort," when, for less money, you can have all the comforts of midsummer right on your own veranda or lawn? At evening, after the sweltering heat, you will find all the luxury of living in our big, old-fashioned lounging chairs in cane, willow, and rattan. Our porch furniture - chairs settees, tables, stools, mats make it possible for any one to convert the porch into a luxurious out-of-door living room at small expense. R. W.
