Does the annual struggle to keep your coal bills down serve to keep you "up in the air" financially?

Ideal Radiators ilB oilers have raised the standard of home com fort, have brought about the perfect automatic control of indoor tempera ture and relieved the household of dirt and drudgery. Unlike stoves or hot- air furnaces, IDEAL Boilers and AMERICAN Radiators are made upon the unit or sectional plan, so that if the building or rooms are enlarged, extra sections or parts may be readily added. The outfit thus lasts forever. Next to heating efficiency and fuel economy, the vital point in a boiler's construction is the method of joining the sections or waterways. IDEAL Boiler nipple connections are all metal, and their absolute tightness is not affected by expansion or contraction, fire, rust or corrosion so far as we can tell after 17 years of test, they will remain perfectly tight for 50 asBssv mm m . . 1 a years or more, tracked or gasket joints maae up witn ruDDcr, asDcsios, paper or composition washers are not used in IDEAL Boilers. There is nothing about t IDEAL Boilers or AMERICAN Radiators to warp, loosen, rust or corrode. Consider the fact that you can use any of the cheaper grades of fuel in an IDEAL' Boiler, and that you will burn less of it You not only get double the volume of heat from the fuel, but the building will be uniformly, healthfully warmed and ventilated in every part, and it will be infinitely cleaner.
