We have been reliably informed that some of
our competitors have been and are now
circulating the report that the manufacturers of
the () K. Stoves and Ranges do not guarantee
the backs in the stoves that they make and that
we sell, for fifteen (15) years. As it is impossible
for us to see every one in person, we take this
means of saying that the statement is an absolute
falsehood, and warn all persons against such a
false statement. There is not one word of truth
in it. The report is circulated merely to try to
break down the wonderful record of the 0. K.
Stoves and the trade we have on them, but our
friends and patrons can rest assured that that
can and will never be done, as the 0. K. htoves
are here to stay, and they are exactly what their
name implies?All Right, if it were not so we
could not have the success with them that we do.
We have, as our freight bills and sales book will
show, sold more of them this year than ever be
