but you cannot give the metal in a Monarch Range anything like so trying an experience as it had
in the factory where the range was made.
The malleable iron that Monarch frames
are made of are heated to a temperature
of 3600 degrees, cast in molds, baked in
an annealing furnace, at a tremendous
P heat, for ten days and then hammered
- -with a hammer that strikes a 10,000-pound
