The chief thing to be considered
in buying a Cooking, or Heating
Stove, is to get one made near home,
so that Plates, that necessarily burn
out in course of finie, can be replaced
at once, and thus preserve your
Stove for an indefinite term. The
Phillips & Cuttorff Mfg. Co., of
Nashville, manufactures a line of
both Cooks and Heaters that are
equal to the best; when you want a
stove, mereiore, get one tnat is
made at home. For sale by Mor
