The train took such a long time to pull out of the station that we thought we'd have to push it. I noticed a girl in front of me get on with a hat box, coat, various packages, and a large suitcase.

"Instant" Palace Is Rare, Sharon Sherman

The Iowa Homemaker

The honeymoon is over, and where do the bride and groom find themselves? Unless they're a Cinderella couple- a fairy-tale prince and princess with a ready-made palace - they find themselves faced with the problem of furnishing their new home. This home may be a house built just for them; but, more likely, it will be a small apartment or a two- or three-room bungalow on some college campus. Wherever and whatever it may be, this will be the beginning of what may someday be a house planned for their needs and preferences.

Does a sudden, irritating buzz or a startling, spine-tingling "brrinng" put you in a bad mood for that "8 o'clock"? A well-known clock manufacturer has put on the market a new kind of alarm clock.
