I derive the most benefit from canoe

my muscles and broaden my mind In
my line of work. The pleasures I have
on these trips cannot be excelled or
equaled. It was during the summer

Look it over and you will agree with us that
No range made of grey or cast iron can possibly be as good
and no other Malleable Range is made as well.
Even apart from it's solid construction, every woman would
choose it because of its delightful cleanliness. Think of what it
