George Ballance Sells Laundry to
Denver People Bu yers Take
A deal was consummated this morn
ing whereby George Uallance disposed
of his steam laundry in this city to Mr.
and Mrs. R. J. Abbott formerly of
Denver, but more recently of Omaha,
Immediate possession is to be given,
the new management assuming charge
of everything Monday morning. Both
Mr. ar.d Mrs. Abbott are experienced
laundry people and it is believed that
they will give their patrons a service
that will be up-to-date in every particu
lar, Mr. Abbott informing the News that
ibis his purpose to install two new
nfochines at the earliest possible mo
ment with this end in view.
This is believed to be one of the
most desirable laundry points in this
section of thetounty and Mr. and Mrs.
Abbott are to be congratulated upon
this plant. Mr. Ballance did not pro
cess to be a laundry man in any sense
of the word, he simply taking the
plant off the hands of his brother a few
months ago in order to enable him to
immediately seek a change of climate
in the interest of his health. However,
he had muuu signal success of its
operation and has constantly increased
its business. Only a few days ago he
took another lease on the promises for
a five year term and had just com
pleted tho installation of a 25-horse
power boiler to take the place of the
old 10-horse. Mr. Dallance has not de
finitely decided his future, but it is
probable that he will again enter his
former business of real estate and in
surance which he discontinued upon
taking charge of the laundry.
Mr. and Mrs. Abbott are stopping at
the Perkins House at the present time,
but will soon secure a residence and
get their household goods here. The
News welcomes them to our midst and
trusts that their relations with the
community may always be the most

Coal Lasts 40
When fire is burning at a cherry red
omy of fuel. For coal then lasts 48
tire is kept at a white not combustion as it is in
burner, there is a big waste, for coal lasts only
eight hours at the outside.
But in Cole's Radiant Hard Coal Stove you
can keep your fire at an economizing, slow,
cherry red heat, yet get as much heat as you
can from fire at a white hot combustion, as is
necessary In a fuel-wasting base burner.
This is due to the tight construction, giving
perfect control over the fire, and to the large
sheet metal radiating surface, which is more
sensitive to heat than cast iron in a base burner.
You can always maintain a slow fire day and night.
Figure the saving in one winter. It would pay
you to throw out the heavy, clumsy fuel-wasting
base burner and set up in its stead the amazing,
fuel-saving Cole's Radiant Hard Conl Stove. And
you can burn crushed coke, tc
Then before the cold weath
o, at $4 to
spring heat the magazine can be easily removed
and you have a front door feed for wood, cobs
end other light fuel. No base burner at twice the
cost will permit that.
Two new appliances are a part of this won
d'.Tfu! stove without extra cost. The gns burning
tfevico utilizes the waste gases. The antii-umng
tlruft prevents the escape of these gases into the
r.iom. Make it a special point to see and examine
this remarkable hard coal stove. It will solve
your stove problems for ail time.
