RIVERSIDE STOVES have been recognized
by the people of Rock Island and vicinity for over
thirty years as the highest attainable quality in cook
and heating appliances.
They have been sold at one stand in our city for
over thirty years in large quantities, but as events be
yond our control have resulted in the closing of that
stand, we were naturally deeply interested in placing
the agency for Rock Island with the best store, where
stove customers would receive prompt and intelli
gent service and where the character of other lines
of goods carried would be on a par with the quality
of Riverside Stoves
Feeling that you also are deeply interested in
knowing where you can purchase these goods in the
future we take pleasure in announcing that we have
CLEM ANN & SALZMANN
Second Avenue and Sixteenth Street;
Sole Agents for Riverside Stoves in Rock Island.
We did this only after carefully investigating and satisfying ourselves that
they have the best facilities for showing, selling and delivering stoves, the most
capable employes and the most satisfactory general line of other stock. We are
of the opinion that the stock of Rugs. Carpets, Furniture, etc., carried by
.Clcmann & Salzmann is second to none that has come to our notice in a very
wide experience, and is. in many respects superior to most.
REMEMBER when you buy a Riverside Stove you not only get the best
that money can buy, but in years to come when you need a small piece of repairs
you can get it at home at trifling expense and quickly.
