The one thing that a home must be
provided with above all things else
is a stove. And since we buy why
not have the best.
Among our big stock of the noted
Great Western Heaters
are the common sense air tight wood
stoves. Every part of them was made
for service When you see their size
you will be surprised at the low price. '
Handsomer stoves for a little more.
A handsome collection of the famous
Charter OakCook Stoves
have graced our store many seasons
These stoves speak for themselves.
The oldest man around Berwyn can
not remember when the Charter Oak
Stove was not in use.
We will save you money on Stoves
