Select the Right Stove
So many folks come in to buy a stove
for a certain price they feel they want to
pay. Instead of satisfying themselves as
to just what the stove will do, they let the
question of price decide the purchase. A
heating stove should be bought not for one
year or five years, but for a generation.
That is why we recommend the stove that
renders the greatest service
The Genuine Round Oak
burns all fuels. When we sell it to you by
the pound, the price is no greater than
others charge for inferior stoves which
would be extravagant in fuel and in a few
years would play out.
Why not let FACTS rather than
price determine your sele&tionr
