}N order to prove to all our friends
that the Majestic is the most perfect
range on the market, we have arranged
for a Cooking Exhibit lasting one week
During this exhibit we will have a
Majestic Range in operation and show
our friends that it will bake better
and quicker, heat more water
and heat it quicker, with less
fuel than any other range made.
We don't ask you to believe all our
statements but do ask you to call at our
store any time during the exhibit and
we will convince you that the Majestic
is exactly as represented. Don't fail to
give us a callnote the date.
