Get one of our oil heaters and keep the temperature just where you want it all the time. Start your fire in a minute, carry it from room to room, get the heat where you need it, and shut it off instantly when you've had eough. By the way, how about the kitchen range and heating stoves? Will they get you through the winter comfortably and economically? If not, now is a good time to see about it, and we are good people to see. G.C. WILKINS, CHAFFEE, NEW YORK); Addressee (R. B.
