ON BUCK STOVES AND RANGES!-
From Pfow Until October 11 st
We are going to offer our entire line of BUCK'S Stoves and Ranges at a discount of 25 per cent. This
is your opportunity to buy a Stove or Range for less money than the cost of the same at the factory.
We want to clean up the entire line of Buck's Stoves, and are not going to handle them any longer.
This change was caused by the recent strike in the Buck factory, at which time we were compelled to accept
another stove, and selected upon the Malleable Ranges, Round Oak Ranges, Base Burners, Heaters and" Fur
naces to supply our customers, after the settlement of which we were still long on our supply of Buck's Stoves.

The Buck's Stoves and Ranges are without a doubt one of the best on the market, well known far and
near, and are fully guaranteed. We have a large number of heaters bf all sizes and grades, also a number of
ranges, all of which we are going to close out on a 25 per cent discount basis, which means a
$15.00 Range will go at $33.75
38.00 Heater 28.50
$20.00 Heater goes at $17.50
We are not offering this sale simply as a business getter, but want more room for our new Fall line and
are willing to lose all the profit, freight, and a share of the original cost, in order to close them out in the
next two weeks. Come in early, for when you see the stove and learn the price you are going to buy one,
so will your neighbor and they will not last long at the above prices.
