The "New Process" Gas Range
embodying superiority, efficiency and economy,
has come among our midst to stay.
Recently a prospective buyer refused to close a
deal for a house on the ground that the gas range
wasn't a "New Process.' The owner of the house
had us install one immediately, and the following
day sold the house to the person above mentioned.
This person knew the merits of the "New Pro
cess.- AND CONSIDERED THE ABSENCE OF
ONE SUFFICIENT REASON TO TURN DOWN
A HOUSE OTHERWISE ACCEPTABLE!
By those who know, the "New Process" Gas
Range is considered INDISPENSABLE.
A NEW CARLOAD OF THESE RANGES,
including all styles and sizes, with all latest im
provements furthering economy of fuel and labor,
has just arrived. IT WILL BE WORTH YOUR
WHILE TO SEE THEM.
