Green COLONIAL Furnace
Has Green's Dome Heat Intensifier
It took a half Century of experience to create the
Green COLONIAL. This furnace was developed
from long furnace manufacturing knowledge.
Every part of every Green COLONIAL Furnace carries a five-year guaran
tee, excepting the grates. Your treatment of the furnace determines their life. But if
any other part cracks or burns out in five years, it will be supplied free. And every part
of every Green COLONIAL is guaranteed against manufacturing defects during the
life of the furnace.
No "ifs" about this protection!
After you have looked into the merit-points of the Green COLONIAL yotl
will understand why your protection isso iron-bound.
But before you investigate, consider these facts; then check up on them later:
The Green COLONIAL has Green's Dome Heat Intensifier a rigid, one
piece cast base, a gas-tight, cup-joint ash-pit, a dust-tight ash-pit door double, separately-hinged
feed-doors the famous Colonial grates an extra heavy, deep, straight
fire-pot perfect draft-control, a radiator that gets every unit of heat from the fuel;
high fuel economy, most dependable heat!

A Sermon On Lumber
In conclusion my friends, wo can't get away from
this lumber question. Why, every one of us
spent our first days in a cradle made of lumber.
Our lives have been lived between walls of two
by fours and. lath, with rafters over our heads,
and matched flooring beneath our feet. We have
been sitting in wooden chairs, eating from wooden
tables, riding in wooden wagons, and in the course
of time will be laid to rest in wooden caskets.
