The r>p??or o* o Iptp Artist rbnreb
-fm a neighboring cJty. whose congr^ca

recently a call from a young colored
man and vornan on matrimony bent.
The man had been a shiftless person
amd the woman was known as Indus
"trious. The preacher noticed that the
'bridegroom was all spruced up and
concluded that the bride had made
ft proper member of society out of
'Olm. so he went ahead with the cere |
?mony with a good deal of satisfaction
He had It in mind not to accept s
fee from these lowly members of his
'flock, but the bridegroom, wirb a
beaming face, handed over the usual
?mall envelope and departed with his
'Dinah before the preacher could pro
test When the pastor opened the
envelope later he read this note:
"Dear Pastor: I am sorry I cannot
j?y you a fee now for uniting me In
?wedlock.- but I spent all I had on wed

the fee was given back to her as a

"Why did you lead me on to pro

"You do me a great injustice." she
answered. "What have I ever done to

"When you danced with the other

Reasons Why The Great Majestic You
1st. It has the reputation of being the best range money can buy.
2nd. It not only has the reputation but IS the best range made, and
we will prove this to you if you will let us.
3rd. It is construe ed of malleable iron, material }ou can't beat, and
of Charcoal iron, material that resists rust 300 per cent greater than
steel, is riviied togeiher air tight. No heat escapes or.cold air enters
the range, thus uses very little fuel to 3o perfect work.
4th. The reservoir alone is worth the price of range over any other
reservoir made. It boils 15 gallons of water; is heated like a tea
kettle, with pocket against left hand lining, and is movable and sets on
frame, hence cannot wear out. When water gets too hot it can be
moved away from fire.
Maje?tic ranges use less tue!; heat more water?and heat it hot
ter; cost practically nothing for repairs; last three times as long; bakes
better; easier to keep clean and f.ives better satisfaction than any other
range on the mardet. If you know positively that the above state
ments are true, wouldn't you buy a majestic at once?
Come in Demonstration Week and We'll Prove It to You.
One week only. No ware given after demonstration week.
