The Automatic Refrigerator fills a long felt
It has perfect circulation.
It reqaires no further attention than to keep
the doors closed and supplied with ice.
No need of cleaning it out while supplied
with ice unless foods are spilled in it.
No lid to prove a nuisance by warping.
Ample shelf room, which is what you buy a
All parts easy of access.
Shelves enough to distribute foods properly.
No flues which are simply spaces for accumu
lating matter which decays and causes trouble,
whether or not they are "Cleanable."
Tho top is stationary and is very useful in many ways.
The Automatic is a roomy refrigerator. Contrast its
capacity with other styles when considering prices.
Everything necessary to keep in a refrigerator may b3
put into an Automatic along with milk, butter and other
delicate sensitive foods, with absolute safety. This may
sound like a "Fairy Tale" to those who have been using
the old style OVERHEAD" goods, but it is the truth
and the reason for it is that the circulation in the Auto
matic is positive, constant, and absolutely correct see
