JUST RECEIVED A SOLID CAR-LOAD
Wilkes' Special Steel Ranges
The Greatest Values Ever Offered the People of Laurens County
in High-grade Steel Ranges.
Top cooking surface, 30 x 36 inches, six 8-inch lids, Oven 21 inches Deep and 17 inches wide.
Reservoir made of heavy galvanized Iron, holds 15 gallons of water.
CONSTRUCTION. The bodies of the ovens of the
"WILKES' RANGE" are made of one piece of Cold
Rolled Steel, i6 gauge, with Hanged edges closely boiler
riveted to the bodies of the Ranges, making perfectly
tight joints, proof against ashes, dust and soot. Rein
forced with cast bridge on top to support the cut centers
and with two i '^-inch channel bar irons closely riveted to
the bottom, making it practically indestructible.
JAPANNING. The bodies of the Closets are clipped
and baked to a high degree of heat, insuring them to
withstand long usage. In fact, the "WILKES' RANGE*'
ought, and will, with care, last a lifetime.
TOP WARMING CLOSET. The top warming
closet of the "WILKES' R VXGK" is novel and beautiful
and has revolving door which swings up under the top of
the closet out of the way, taking up no space and permit
ting the whole of the interior of the closet to be exposed
while placing in the food to be wanned.
ASBESTOS LINED FLU KS. The Hues and end of
the fire box are asbestos lined. Asbestos being a fire
proof material, indestructible and a non-conductor, it pre
vents the heat radiating into the room and effectually
confines it within the range, against the oven, which tends
to great economy in the consumption of fuel, and insures
great durability of the range.
STEEL RANGES VERSUS COOK STOVES
It is a well-established fact and conceded by the public in general, that Cast Iron Cook Stoves and Ranges are
things of the past, and are superseded by Steel Ranges, on account of their great durability, superior baking and cooking
qualities and economy in.the consumption of fuel. The indestructibility of wrought steel, as compared with cast iron, at
once establishes its superiority for cook.ing ranges. The Cold Rolled Steel Plate used in the construction of the "WILKES
RANGE" has many advantages. Malleable Steel Plate is a high grade of metal in its purest state, rolled into plates
with high pressure that not only insures a uniform thickness, but increases its density by compiessing more closely its
texture; making it permanently invincible to the acids produced by the different stages of combustion. Another strong
recommendation in favor of Steel Plate is its excellence as a conductor of heat, securing equal expansion and contraction
of all parts subjected to tie different degrees of heat, while it does not blister or scale, and owing to its destiny and fine
ness of grain is not affected by rust.
Call and let us show you the best Range value that you ever saw.
