October 26, 1917.
To Whom It May Cocern:
I have made personal investigation of the re-
frigerating ice machine as manufactured by the
Tropic Ice Machine Company of this city.
This machine is designed particularly for
family and .'arm use. I was very much impressed
with the machine and its practical features. I
understand that this machine has been endorsed
bv the Industrial Committee of the Chamber of
Commerce of this city, and I am sure it will pay
.anyone to investigate this machine.
Yours very truly,
R. C. STUART,
Vice President and Cashier.
THE GUARANTY BANK

To Whom It May Concern:
We take pleasure in stating that we are well

the Tropic Ice Machine Oompary of this city.
Mr. E. J. Green Is president of the Company;
Mr. H. C. Kee, vice president and treasurer, and
Mr. E. E. Gainer, secretary and general manager.
Mr. Green, president of the Company, Is a
retired banker and formerly lived in Enid, Okla.,
and comes here with the best of references. Mr.
K \ vice president and treasurer, is a man of fine
business ability and has the confidence of his as
sociates. Mr. E. E. Gainer, secretary and general
manager, we also highly recommend as an ener* Jo
and successful man.
This Company Is manufacturing an Ice ma-
chine, which is a new departure from anything of

the kind on the market, being much more slmpi
construction and more effective than anything now
on tne market, and we consider it will be very
useful and meet with a wide sale to farmers, dairy-

machines has ever gone bankrupt. This shows that the de-

in the business.
