TT* URN ACES differ 03 much as people, r.nJ v/» welcome a
JL1 comparison of the Cahill with other pipekso furnaces. Thu
“insides” of a furnace are what count, and that is where
the Cahill excels. The casting are unusually heavy, unusually
thick and unusually well fitted and finished. This means that
heat is retained longer in a Cahill furnace, that the radiation of
heat is greater, less fuel 13 used, less attention is required, and
that cracking end breaking of the vital per ,3ii eliminated. The Cahill castings
guarantee greater dur-b»i.tyJ economy ar.J convenience.
The Cahill Furnace ia the result of 40 years
manufacturing experience, and embodies the
satr.'? manufacturing ideals which have given
to Cahill Grates ar d Fireplace Fixtures, an en-
viable reputation for quality and dependability.

] they found that the raise did not
; show they walked out. The girls are

Manager R. S. Moore says lhat he
feels certain the raise in salary has
been allowed, and that it is to be-
come effective as soon as possible, but
that the Company did not find it pos-

cords so soon. In Mr. Moore’s opinion
the strike was unnecessary and un-
