A cook stove may not be considered an ideal Christmas pre
sent, but in many cases it will be most highly appreciated, espe
cially if it is an unusually good stove. The Monarch range is shown
in the above illustration is of high grade construction and low in
price. The extra large draft space gives it superior cooking qual
ities. The Monarch range was designed by expert mechanics and
built by high class workmen. You can't better it.
