An Innovation in Oil Heaters
The Perfection Smokeless Oil Heater, v.-ith its
drums enameled in turquoise, is an ornament to any
room, whether in the country or city home.
No home is quite complete without a Perfection Oil
Heater. It is a necessity in the fall and spring, when it is too
warm to start the regular heating apparatus, and too cool to be
without heat. In the midst of winter it is often convenient as
an auxiliary heater, as there are always some cold corners
in a house.
The enameled heater a!way promts a nice appearance, as the
enamel will not tarnish or bum off. It is not an "enamel paint, but it
is the same as the enamel of your cooking utensil.
The Perfection is the mcst reliable and convenient portable heating
device you can find. An automatically-locking Same spreader prevents
turning die wick high enough to smoke.
