Tanlac, vegetable bitters, herbs of iron and other concoctions offered as remedies for backaches, strained shoulders, tired feet or whatever ails the "run down" housewife, has a new competitor in the field-the rearrangement of the kitchen and its's equipment. Many steps are taken needlessly every day and many backs are weary at night, because of poorly arranged and inefficient kitchens.
