One Dollar Per Annum
RAILWAY POLICIES—A CONTRAST
There is no dispute as to the immediate
necessity for a constructive railway policy
for British Columbia. This is one of the
points on wliieh Liberals do not join issue
with Conservatives. Indeed, some of their
speakers have contended that Mr. McBride
has delayed too long in maturing some
definite scheme. Of that, he is the best
judge, and the defection of two of his
ministers, for financial reasons, does nol,
strengthen the argument of those who contend that he should have moved earlier.
The question of a constructive railway
policy turns entirely 11)1011 its financial
aspect. However badly a railway may be
needed its construction cannot be undertaken until it can be financed, and Mr.
McBride has only waited until the credit
of the Province has been so re-established,
and its revenues so increased and consolidated, that it would be safe to make the
I venture.
Some Liberal critics contend that even
Inow the finances are not sufficiently .stable,
[and urge that the resignation of Mr. Tatlow was due to a fear that the proposed
guarantee might impose too severe a strain
upon its revenues. But Mr. Tatlow never
said anything of the kind. Mis objection
to Er. McBride's policy was based solely
upon the principle that he was opposed
' to aiding railway construction in any form.
JUSTIFICATION.
It has already been pointed out that
both the liquid assets and the revenues of
the Province justify the guarantee which
Mr. McBride proposes to give. Before this
guarantee could become 11 source of financial danger, two things would have to
happen, the Canadian Northern would
have to default in their payments, which
would involve a subversion of all their
previous railway experience, and in addi-
| tion the revenues of the Province would
have to diminish, and its land holding-
would have to depreciate in value; and
neither contingency is probable, and indeed, barely possible.
Now more directly to contrast the character of the two railway policies before
the electorate, first see what the Government undertakes. Mr. McBride promises
to submit to Parliament and, subject to
such modification as may result from the
discussions there, to carry a railway Bill
which will comprise two sections. The
first, the construction of a railway by the
Canadian Northern from the Yellowhead
Pass to the Coast, and from Victoria to
Barkley Sound, six hundred miles in all,
with a fast ferry service across the
Straits. This railway is to be commenced
within three months of the passing of the
necessary Act, and completed within four
years thereafter. The company will be
prohibited from employing Oriental labour; indeed, in this connection it may be
pointed out that the Canadian Northern
have never employed this class of labour,
but have dealt so generously and fairly
with their employees that they have had
no difficulty in securing all the white
labour required.
Here is a definite proposition of six
hundred miles of new railway in four
years; against it Jir. Oliver has made
no definite proposition; he does not. claim
to have secured even the conditional undertaking of any railway corporation to
build any one of the numerous lines which
he is willing to subsidize. These lines are
eleven in number. It is not necessary to
recapitulate them here, but they are scattered about the Province, and while some
The Provincial Campaign
of them form links in a chain, none of
them are of the character of the propose.!
Canadian Northern railway, and none of
them will establish a competing Transcontinental system.
This is the weakness of Mr. Oliver's
policy, that it is "a thing of shreds ami
patches," without cohesion or connection,
and that, oven if he were returned to
power he would still have to start out in
search of some Corporation willing to
build.
SUBSIDIES.
Then to the whole of Mr. Oliver's proposals there is the one standing objection,
that he proposes to give subsidies. Indeed, the. key-stone of his railway arch is
"subsidy" as opposed to "guarantee." If
the Province believes that a subsidy is a
better bargain than a guarantee, then, if
Mr. Oliver could submit a railway polic.y
equal in other respects to Mr. McBride's
undoubtedly it would support Mr. Oliver,
but there is no reason to believe that such
a proposal is entertained with even the
slightest degree of favour because the Province has twice endorsed Mr. McBride's
stand against subsidies of every kind, ll
is not easy to understand why Mr. Oliver
has fallen back upon this discredited expedient, except that Liberals have always
had a fondness for subsidies. They are
more elastic, they are more profitable to
fhe go-between, and they furnish fine opportunities for the exercise of diplomatic
skill. Just how remunerative they can be
made is well illustrated in the case of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, and would have
been still further illustrated if the Laurier
Government could have had its way in
British Columbia, but again Mr. McBride,
in his fight against Ottawa rescued millions of dollars worth of land for the enrichment of the Provincial revenues. Mr.
McBride stated at Grand Forks on Wednesday night that the Kettle Eiver Valley
subsidy, of which more anon, was the last
word on the subject, and The Week has
no hesitation in saying that British Columbia has said the last word on subsidies.
BOND GUARANTEES.
The alternative is a guarantee of bonds,
which is admitted to be the readiest and
most satisfactory method of encouraging
and assisting railway construction. It is
true that the credit of the Province is
pledged, and that in a certain contingency
it would have to pay the total issue of
bonds and the interest. That contingency
is very unlikely to occur, because, the last,
thing likely to happen is for the Canadian
Northern to default in its payments. If
it does not, then the Province will never
have to pay a penny, and it will have secured a third Transcontinental system, superior in every respect to any of its competitors.
But let it be assumed that the Canadian Northern are unable to meet the payments of interest, and that the Province
has to assume them, it at once obtains
possession of the railway, or so much of it
as may have been constructed. This is not
the result of any special legislation, nor is
it dependent on any clauses in the proposed Act, it is a recognized principle of
all such bond guarantees, and as th»
money raised by these bonds is to be expended under Government control, and
will only be paid out for an equivalent in
railway construction, and as the Canadian
Northern will have to supplement every
dollar realized by the bonds by an additional fifty or sixty cents, it should be
clear, even to a Liberal mind, that the
Province has an abundant margin of safety, and that under no circumstances can if
fail to get value for its money.
The Liberal press has tried to make out
that, the bond holders would be in effect
the first mortagees, and therefore that it is
impossible for the Province to acquire a
first mortgage on the railway, yet in the
next breath it declares that Mr. McBride
is assuming a liability for the full amount,
of the bond issue, as well as the interest.
Apparently the press does not see the in
consistency of their own argument, because if the Province had to step in and
assume the repayment of the bond issue,
and the interest, it would step into the
bond holders' shoes. By what process of
reasoning it can be made out tliat the
Province would have to pay the price of
the property and yet not get the property,
The Week is unable to understand.
The fact of the matter is that the Opposition, led by the inventive and imaginative
warrior from Delta, is once more trying
to manufacture a bogie, in order to scare
the electors. In doing so, it is using the
flimsiest material, hardly good enough to
make a respectable scarecrow, and is altogether under-rating the intelligence of the
constituency.
THE C. N. R. RECORD
Apart from the legal aspects of the question, the personality of the men at the head
of the Canadian Northern, aud their past
record as railway builders must be taken
into account. Some unscrupulous Liberal
speakers have tried to make out that the
history of the Canadian Northern in other
Provinces is not encouraging, and does not
justify the confidence which Mr. McBride
reposes in them. These speakers declare
that, even if the main line is built, it will
only be used as "a spout to the funnel,"
through which Alberta grain will be
poured to the Coast. They contend that
no branch lines will be built, that nothing
will be done to develope the country, that
the railway in the main does not pass
through a productive country, and that for
a long distance it parallels an existing line
and therefore ought not to be assisted.
Such representations are false, and should
be so to the knowledge of those who make
them.
THE C. N. R. IN MANITOBA
Manitoba has had the longest experience
of the Canadian Northern. In 1901 the
Company owned only 21G miles in that
province, and as it shortly acquired the
Northern Pacific of 31G miles, it may be
credited with a total of 532. These
figures are taken from thc reports of the
Department of Railways and Canals,
1901, part G, page 25. According to the
statement of the Hon. Colin Campbell, the
present mileage in Manitoba alone is 2,-
500, and this, in spite of the fact that the
first agreement made with Mr. Roblin,
under which the Province was to guarantee its bonds, did not make mention of a
single mile of construction in Manitoba.
The agreement merely was to purchase thc
Northern Pacific lines, and to complete a
main line of its own from thc prairies of
Manitoba to a port on the Great Lakes.
The new railway thus provided for lay entirely in the Province of Ontario.    The
2,000 miles since built by the Canadian
Northern in Manitoba, without any legal
obligation or contract, have given it a
greater mileage than is possessed by the
C.P.R. although at the time that Com
pany had been operating in the Province
for more than twenty years.
Naturally the bulk of this new mileage
is on branch lines, whieh serve as feeders
to the main line. These facts lend little,
colour to the contention that a company
which has pursued such an enlightened
and enterprising policy in Manitoba will
rest on its oars when it has secured a
trunk line in British Columbia, and even
if its record were not a standing protest
against such a suggestion, the necessities
of the case would force it to seek revenue
by building branch lines wherever freight
could be obtained.
Since the original boud guarantee of
the Roblin Government there have been a
number of subsequent guarantees aggregating $8,570,000. This is entirely for
branch lines, the mileage of which aggregates 1,400. Tlie total guarantees of the
Province of Manitoba to this Company
are as follows:
Voted by Mr. Greenway $ -1,120,000
Voted by Mr. Roblin..'  22,810,000
Total $2G,930,000
Under these guarantees there lias been
no default, and the Province has not been
called upon to pay a cent, nor is it likely
to be. If Manitoba, with its limited area,
can afford to guarantee bonds to this
amount, what becomes of the contention
that British Columbia, whicli Liberals and
Conservatives alike, unite in acclaiming as
the richest Province in Canada, cannot afford to guarantee $21,500,000 ?
THE C. N. R. IN ALBERTA
But Manitoba is not the only Province
whicli has confidence in the Canadian
Northern. This year Alberta has guaranteed their bonds to the extent of $27,-
815,000. When the Liberal bond guarantee was announced it was loudly applauded by Liberals, and by the Liberal
press, including the Victoria Times, as the
great work of a Liberal Government. Yet,
Alberta gets no new transcontinental line,
she gets inferior security, and she guarantees bonds to a greater amount although
her assets and revenue am smaller.
WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH B.C.?
But, say some of our Liberal friends:
"That is all very well for Manitoba and
Alberta, where you have only to lay the
track and farm produce is offered on every
hand, but in British Columbia it is different." Yes, it is different, unless
Liberals ami Conservatives alike have
entered into a conspiracy to deceive the
world. Britisli Columbia is a Province
of far greater, and more varied resources,
and where the Prairie Provinces have
little or nothing but farm produce to offer,
British Columbia has at least three great
industries—Mining, Lumbering and Agriculture, which ensure freight wherever n
railway can be built.
The Province which yields the largest
product value per capita in taxation, which
has the largest, per capita revenues, to say
nothing of its undeveloped resources, is
surely not going to fail in producing
transportation revenues where other Provinces with a single industry, and not a
tithe of its resources hav$,sueceeded.
The Week sees no logical conclusion to
the attitude of the Liberals than that they
lack that faith in their Province which all
men profess, or that they are willing to do
their utmost to scotch the wheels of progress because the triumphant car is being
driven by a Conservative charioteer. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1909

ETHEL M. KINU,
oct 9 Per A. W. McVittie, Agent.
The attention of the readers of The
Week is directed to an advertisement
in the current issue with respect to
an important sale of Government lots
at Esquimalt. In view of the policy
of the Imperial Government to place
a fleet on thc Pacific and the certainty that Esquimalt will again bc chosen
as a Naval base, the present is a favourable opportunity for acquiring
some of these valuable lands at prices
which are certain to see a rapid advance in the near future.
A doctor says that bacteria will
thrive at the north pole; it may be
that the bad-temper bacilli flourish
there. There seem to bc reasons for
so  believing.
DURING THE RECENT A. Y. P. EXPOSITION
A boaster in a Seattle hotel was doing some tall talk
about the many parts of the world he had visited. A
Victorian asked "Have you ever been in Algebra?" Oh,
yes," said the boaster, "I passed through it in an automobile about a year ago."
Talking of bragging reminds us of some of the advertisements of so-called "mineral waters" which boast of
their superiority and lowness of price.
Victoria folks, as a rule, do not quibble about cost;
they are accustomed to demand the best. They realize
that the best commands the highest figure. They demand
White Rock Mineral Water because it is absolutely pure
and good and they are perfectly willing to pay the extra
charge to get the best,—the genuine White Rock Lithia
Water.
All the first class hotels and restaurants now handle
nothing as a leader in table waters except White Rock.
Pure, delicious, sparkling, it is fit for a king's table. It
does grace the table of King Edward every day of the
year.
Order White Rock from your grocer. If he does not
stock White Rock, do not accept an inferior water, but
telephone us and wc will give you the name of a reputable
dealer  who handles  this "best cold  bottle of the day."

At the Street Corner
By THE LOUNGER
I confess to a certain sympathy
with the people who are agitating
for the closing of the post office on
Sundays; in fact the only objection I
have against them is tbat they don't
go far enough. How much better it
would be to close post offices everywhere for always. How much worry
would be saved, and what an immensity of trouble! Consider the number
of absolutely unnecessary letters
written every day; letters which are
a fatigue to%write and an annoyance
to .read; letters which never would be
written were it not for the fact that
postage is so cheap that there is no
excuse for not writing. Rowland Hill,
Henniker Heaton and Sidney Buxton
have earned for themselves the eulogies of posterity, but I for one do not
feel so sure that they do not better
deserve their opprobrium.
Think of the delightful security of
olden times; using the word in its
strictest sense of "freedom from care."
No mail to worry about, because a
16c stamp would scare off all but the
most important correspondents, and
the average man possesses no really
intimate friends in the Houses of
Parliament, who would frank his unnecessary effusions. For practical
purposes the example of the old lady
in the country might well be followed
She, you will doubtless remembe-,
having a son in the army and be-m;
very desirous of keeping herself ac
quainted with his welfare, made him
post her at regular intervals an envelope; this, when tendered by the
postman, she invariably refused, there
by saving the cost of postage and at
the same time recognizing by the
hand-writing that all was well with
little Willie. But now-a-days we are
harassed by the postman's heavy
tread; the viper that we have fed
and warmed at our bosom has turned
to bite us; and day in, day out, we
sacrifice our ease and comfort at the
altar of the fetish, "mail."
Of course it is one of the penalties
we have to pay for the inestimable
benefit of being civilized; but after
all which is the happier, the "heathen
in his blindness," or the civilized
man of today. I say nothing of the
independent gentleman of large means
and extravagant habits; he toils not,
neither does he spin, and if he doesn't
contrive to have a goocl time, there
is probably something radically wrong
with his constitution. (Room here
for small patent medicine ad. Enterprising quacks apply to this department.) When all is said and done
life is merely a succession of comparison ;s luxuries and extravagances
only exist because man is an emulous
creature, who cannot endure to see a
neighbour enjoying privileges from
which he is himself debarred. That
is really the spirit which is the cause
of that frantic business rush which
has been the enemy of digestion and
the best friend to hair restorers. And
exactly the same effect can be, and is,
produced amongst the heathen, with
the substitution of cowries and wives
for automobiles and steam yachts.
Is there anyone who really and
truly regards the telephone as a blessing? A convenience it may bc and
doubtless is; but it is only thc fact
that your business rival in the next
block has a telephone, and that he is
liable to get ahead of you in the great
race against time, which makes the
installation a vital necessity for yourself. Much is said these days about
disarmament and universal peace,
neither of which events is ever likely
to take place until at least one Armageddon is fought.   Naturally enough
IMPORTANT SALE OF LAND IN ESQUIMALT
DISTRICT
MESSRS. STEWART WILLIAMS 4. CO.
Duly instructed by the Commissioner of Lands, will sell by
PUBLIC AUCTION, at thc DRIARD HOTEL, VICTORIA, on
MONDAY, NOV. 22nd, 10.30 SHARP
About 60 icres of Land, situated in the Esquimalt District, near
to Parson's Bridge, being Lots 27, 29, 32, 33, and 34, subdivisions
of Section 98.
Terms—One-quarter cash, and the balance in three equal annual instalments, bearing interest  at  6  per  cent.
Further  particulars can  be obtained  from
THE AUCTIONEER, STEWART WILLIAMS.
no one Power is going to be fool
enough to start disarming first; in the
same way, I sorrowfully realize that
the telephone, the postal department
and many other luxuries, which we
never needed till we had them, arc-
here to stay, because no one has either
the nerve or the financial reserve necessary, to cry "Halt, enough."
I think that the attention of the
C.P.R. officials should be directed
towards the intense dissatisfaction
which is felt by passengers between
Victoria and Vancouver at the indiscriminate herding of the low-class
Oriental coolie with first-class passengers. It is a matter for surprise
to me that the Princess Victoria docs
not issue a second class ticket; I
understand that on the sister boat this
is done. However that may be, the
arrangements on the "Victoria" call
for a good deal of alteration. On
Sunday last I was crossing from Vancouver to the Capital; in the course
of the afternoon, accompanied by a
couple of friends, I strolled off to the
bar for a drink. I found that the
entrance to the bar had been altered
from its original position, and could
only be approached via the smoking
room on the lower deck. This was
filled with Chinese; not nice respectable looking Chinese, with white collars, who impress you as being members of the Pekin "Upper Ten," but
filthy and degraded specimens of the
Orient. The stench was overpowering and for once in my life, I didn't
wait for a drink. I was told that
not long ago a gang of Orientals invaded the ladies' cabin, and had to be
ejected by the purser; I do not suggest that they did so wittingly, but
being allowed to wander all over the
boat, they just made themselves comfortable in there. Now this sort of
thing isn't right. No doubt I lay
myself open to the accusation of snobbishness. I shall be told that the
Chinaman is a jolly sight better man
than I am. I admit that, in some
cases. I shall be reminded that we
shall all be one colour in the hereafter, and that every man, whatever
his hue, is my brother, Granted. But
if my brother were to turn up on the
"Princess Victoria" in the disgusting
personal condition of some of those
Chinks, I should object just as strongly at having to travel with him. And
the concentrated essence of sixty
similar brothers would materially
strengthen   that  objection.
A point which must not be lost
sight of is that there is nothing in
the world to prevent these people
from taking up their abode during the
passage, in the upper smoking room,
or in the saloon at the other end of
the vessel. They pay just the same
price as the white man, and have undeniably the right to go where they
please. There is, I suppose, some
sub-conscious recognition of the proprieties which does actually keep
them to themselves. But there is no
reason why they should not be segregated entirely; if the company were
to issue a second-class ticket, the
thrifty John would take it, and he
could then be packed away in some
part of the ship all by himself. At
all events the present arrangements
from the point of view of thc thirsty
passengers are  intolerable.
If what I hear is true there is going to be more fun still down on the
Causeway. Apparently after thc concrete is all down, it will all have to
be picked up again to allow the wires
to be laid for the proper lighting of
that part of the city. Wonderful!
Really, 1 think that Victoria should
offer to send experts to London who
would give a series of lectures on
"How to keep the Unemployed supplied with work." Wasn't there some
nursery rhyme with reference to a
certain King of Spain, who attained
notoriety in history by first of all
marching up a hill with a numerous
following, and then giving a personally conducted tour down again.
Something like the City Council?
What? And they had never told the
poor City Engineer anything about
the contract with the Empress for
the lighting of the Causeway. Of
course this may all be false, and a
mere fabrication; but it was what
they were saying on the street corner, just as I passed.
I want to propose a vote of censure, which I hope every reader will
endorse, on two hotels and one department store of Victoria, which, regardless of all sense of decency, havc
planted hideous advertising boards on
one of the islands in the Straits. They
may have been there a long time: I
don't know. I never saw them myself until last Sunday and I was disgusted. It seemed incredible that
men, even business men, should bc
so utterly dead to the fitness of
things, as to presume to deface the
landscape in such a manner. Is there
no power which can prevent such vandalism? Is it possible that the owner
of the island, whoever he may be, has
the right to sell the beauty of the
scenery for so much cash. The effect
such an advertisement would have on
me would be to impress upon me thc
necessity of avoiding any house
which availed itself of such a means
of publicity. LOUNGER.

YOU'LL NEED THESE DOOR MATS
SAVE YOURSELF MUCH WORK AND WORRY BY GETTING ONE TODAY
These "occasional" showers and the resultant mud should bring forcibly to you the wisdom of an early purchase of
door mats. To make the matter of choosing easy and economy certain we advise you to inspect our offerings first. You'll
save time. No more complete showing of these much needed items is to be found elsewhere in the city. You can gratify
most any desire in the matter of price, size and style here.    Pleased to show you these—to demonstrate the superiority of quality.
BEST QUALITY COCOA
14x24 in., at $1.25 and 90c
16x27 in-» at $I-SO and $1.25
18x30 in., at $1.80 and $1.50
20x33 in., at $2.25 and $1.75
22x36 in., at $2.75 and $2.00

28x45 in., at $4.50 and $3.50
30x48 in., at $5.00 and $4.00
SKELETON  DOOR  MATS
Skeleton Cocoa Door Mats are very
popular with many. We show
some excellent mats in this style.
Quite a choice of prices, for we
have   them  at  $1.50,   $1.25,  $1.00,
and    85c
Wire Mats, 16x24 in $1.25
Wire Mats, 18x30 in $1.75
Wire Mats, 22x36 in $2.50
WOOL-BORDERED MATS
Wool Bordered Cocoa Mats make a
very attractive style and are much
favored door mat styles. We show
an excellent range with the prices
ranging at $5.00, $2.50, $2.00, $1.50
and   $1.25
Wire Mats, 26x48 in $4.00
Others up to  $7.00
By the Yard, at  $3.75
If you'll just combine a wire door mat with the cocoa one you have decided to purchase you'll get a combination that'll
repay you many times for the money expended, in satisfaction. The wire mat removes the greater portion of the mud and
the cocoa mat completes the operation. The dirt falls through the wire mat and is easily swept away. Preserve the life of
the cocoa mat.   We have them priced in many sizes, priced at  $1.25, $1.75, $2.50, $4.00, $5.00, $6.00, $7.00
An Umbrella Stand is a Convenient Item These Days
You'll be keeping your umbrella more than ordinarily busy during the next few months and you should have an umbrella
rack in which to store it during the "rest" periods. Don't let it run pools of water over the hall floor and don't leave it
outside to get soaked or to be blown away. With umbrella stands priced so low as these are there's no excuse whatever for
you not owning one:—
Umbrella Stands—In golden oak with brass pans.    Priced
at $2.50 and  $2.25
Umbrella Stands—In Early English oak at, each, $9.50, $6.00,
$4*50, $3-50 and .... .fgm______________________H__. $2-5°
The Last Objection to Carpets Is Removed
THE ADVENT OF THE PORTABLE VACUUM CLEANER REMOVES THE LAST OBJECTION
With the advent of the portable Vacuum Cleaner the only objection to carpets as a floor covering disappears. Some
objected to having the floors covered with carpet on health grounds. They claimed that such a style of floor covering wasn't
sanitary, that it held dirt and was a hiding place for germs. The daily use of the portable vacuum cleaner will overcome all
this—won't give either dirt or germs a chance to get in. Nothing else equals carpet as a floor covering, in effect, comfort
and general satisfaction. It can be kept as sanitary as linoleum. Our carpets have artistic merit that would be an adornment
to any room and they are surprisingly inexpensive, considering the quality. We guarantee the utmost satisfaction. Come in
and let us figure on some new winter carpets.
Ingrain Carpets, from per yard  60c Velvet Carpets, from per yard  $1.50
Tapestry Carpets, from per yard  75c Wilton Carpets, from per yard  $1.90
Brussels Carpets, from per yard   85c Axminster Carpets, from per yard  $1.90
Above prices are for carpets made and laid by skilled workmen.

TIME TO MAKE
Christmas Puddings
HERE'S A GOOD ENGLISH RECIFE
Beat eight eggs and mix them with a pint of good cream, half a pound of ffour and half a
pound of crumb of bread; beat them well together and add to them one pound of beef suet
chopped very fine, one pound of currants, one pound of powdered sugar, two ounces of candied
orange-peel and the same of citron. Grate a small nutmeg and mix all well together with half a
pint of brandy and wine. It will take six hours to boil and is a very rich and excellent pudding.
Most housewives are aware that plum puddings are better made some weeks before they arc
required. If boiled for five or six hours they only need heating through when required, therefore
form a nice quickly prepared dish at a busy period.
Xmas Puddings can be boiled and the largest joint
can be roasted at the same time with a Gas Range without
the cook being compelled to remain in the kitchen and
watch the lire. Many ladies, who do their own cooking
with gas, just regulate thc heat to a nicety and leave the
range for hours to take care of itself while they go clown
town to do their shopping or make calls. They can do
this without fear of bad results because of the easy and
accurate regulation of heat with gas. A Gas Range will
bake bread ancl do anything that a coal range will do,—
but it will do it better than coal. It is always ready
whether you want to prepare a light meal or a full course
dinner.
YOU   SHOULD   INSTALL   A   GAS   RANGE

For cold bathrooms, bedrooms or sitting rooms there's
nothing for comfort like a Gas heating apparatus. It not
only gives the required warmth, but renders a genial air
of hospitality to any home. It is economical, too, because a turn of thc tap and the expense of fuel ceases.
Xo work attached to gas heat. No fire to kindle, no coal,
wood or ashes to carry about; no dirt, no dust. It is
damp, chilly weather just now. Perhaps there is a room
in your house that is not heated properly by the furnace.
A Gas Radiator costs very little to install. We can offer
you one as low in price as $4. A small Radiator will
heat a medium sized room in ten minutes or less.
