Your kitchen will never be complete until you have a "Jewel" Range; stop wasting fuel and
time with an unsatisfactory range. Buy a "Jewel" and you will have a range which has not
only , Beauty and strength, but embodies all the constnictural skill that makes for the greatest
utility at least fuel expense. "Jewel" Ranges are made in the oldest and largest stove
foundry in America, and constructed throughout of the best materials obtainable and in the
most approved manner. There is a "Jewel" model to suit your kitchen's need. Made in large
and small sizes, some of plain and simple design others highly ornamental. Buy a "Jewel"
and you have the best range ever made.
These Exclusive Features Make "Jewel" Ranges Superior to All Others
EXTRA QUALITY STEEL Knowing that the life of a steel range depends largely upon the qual
ity -of the material used in its construction, the very best grade of steel manufactured for steel
range making is employed iu Jewel Steel Ranges. This -steel is knosn as 'Blue Planished Steel. It
is made with a highly polished surface, which it. always retains, and requires no blacking. This
sort of steel is only found in i-anges of te best' quality, because its high cost precludes its use in
ranges of inferior grade. In low-price steel ranges, japanned or painted steel is used as a substi
tute, which is a sure indication, of inferiority.
DOUBLE ASBESTOS-LINED WALLS The walls in Jewel Steel Ranges are made from two sep
arate sheets of steel, lined with asbtestos mill-board, where exposed to the direct action of the fire.
Hand-driven Norway iron rivets hold the steel sheets and asbestos linings in place. This plan of
construction insures not only an extra durable but a heat-retaining body, which secures the great
est value from the fuel consumed.
KEMI-TEST METAL CASTINGS Jewel Kemi-Test Metal is used in making all cast parts. This
superior iron is found only in Jewel Stoves; it is tested and analyzed by an expert chemist to in
sure against imperfections before it is run, and is produced by the mixing and blending of the
various kinds of iron ores that are obtained from the different iron-producing sections of the coun
try. Its superiority is evidenced by the exceptional smoothness of the castings it produces, their
freeness from sand holes and the common defects of stove plate..
LARGE FIRE BOXES-The fire boxes in all Jewel Steel Ranges are correctly proportioned to
bum a minimum amount of fuel. They are made deep and wide, so they will Lold fire over night,
and are lined with the heaviest and best oast linings possible to make. As a further protection to
the linings and body of the stove surrounding them they are made with non-radiating air spaces
back of them. Oval end sections are furnished t) eliminate dead corners, and all linings are made
in sections so they can be easily removed or replaced.
FLOOR-PROTECTING AIR CHAMBER A double steel bottom with large intervening ventilating
air space protects the floor on which the range is set, thus obviating all possible danger of fire.
CAST-IRON FLUE BACK This is a feature not found in ranges of a cheap grade. By the flue
back we mean the part where the products of combustion enter the chimney flue on the back of
the stove, at the base of the oven. Instead of being formed entirely from steel, a cast-iron pocket
is furnished, which is not affected by the creosote or soot like steel.
FOR HEATING WATER Reservoir style Jewel Ranges can be furnished, or a water front for
placing in the firebox, where water is supplied by a waterworks system. Either equipment will
provide an ample supply of hot water.

THE EASILY REMOVED GRATE The grate installed in Jewel Steel Ranges is without doubt
the simplest and most improved ever designed. It consists of two duplex bars, which, when turned,
ent the ashes and clinkers from tbe firo without dropping unburned coal into the aslx pit. The
grate is made without tracks or frames to warp and crack, and the hangers are placed where they
do not come into contact-with the fira, thus insuring a grate which can be easily removed at all
times, without disturbing the fire box lining. This grate is adaptable for burning wood or coal. By
inverting the bars a perfect wood-burning fire-bottom is provided.
PERFECT BAKING OVEN The value of a steel range depends largely upon its baking qualities.
Realizing this, the designers of Jewel Steel Ranges have given the construction of the ovens spe
cial attention. They are made square, and full size, with a protecting castiron plate over the top,
and a patented non-buckling oven bottom. The heat is circulated by the direct sheet flue plan of
construction, which causes the heat from the firebox to travel evenly over the top end and bottom,
before escaping into the chimney flue. To this scientific plan of heat distribution is attributed the
exceptional baking qualities of Jewel Ranges. No other range bakes so quickly, more evenly or with
less fuel consumption. ,
DROP OVEN DOORS Spring-poised, drop oven doors are provided, which when dropped form a
convenient shelf. The doors are mounted with extra heavy hangers, practically eliminating all dan
ger of breakage. The inside surface of the door is perfectly smooth, and heavy asbestos linings pre
vent the escape of heat while baking. A reliable oven thermometer is furnished with all Jewel
Ranges of the most expensive patterns.
POUCH FEED UOOR'AND POKER DOOR--AU Jewel Steel Ranges are equipped with a pouch
feed door of large size, which allows feeding fuel into the firebox without removing the covers.
It may also be used for broiling or toasting. Also a grate door which, when dropped, exposes the
entire front section of the grate for poking or cleaning the fire. In many ranges these features
are lacking. Particular attention is also directed to the construction of Jewel Ranges surronndin"
the firebox. Here the heat is strongest, and the range should be especially protected if it is ex
pected to last and give good service. Instead of the steel extending to the top of the range at
this point, a heavy castiron casting is substituted, thus materially adding to the life of the ran"e.
LARGE ASH PJT Many steel ranges are made with a totally inadequate ash pit. This objection
is overcome in Jewel Ranges by making the ash pit extra large, and placing it where it is easily
accessible. It is supplied with a large, heavy-baled ash pan of improved design.
TOP AND COVERS To allow for the proper expansion and contraction of the iron in the top
plate, Jewel Steel Ranges are made with the sectional top and cut centers. The covers and centers
are trussed like a bridge, so they will not warp or sag from heat. One reducing ring cover is furnished.

Go-Cart Time Is Here
Our "1910" line of Go-earts is now complete. Like all else in
this store, this year's line is far superior to that of "1909,". and
even more "bargainy" in price. We invite inspection.
The carts we talk about today are collapsible. Their one-motion
feature is wonderful in its operation.
A positive footbrake operates on then-car wheel.
There are elastic steel springs under the seat which absorb all
jars and jolts.
The reclining back can be adjusted to no less thau five positions.
The adjustable dash is simple but positive.
Last, but not least, the 1910 models are wider than those of last
year they're roomier and more comfortable.
All are on sale at Powers' prices, which mean the lowest ever.
We have sold thousands of "Jewei"
Ranges and have yet to hear the first
complaint. Come in and have us show
you why this is so.
"Jewel" Ranges are so constructed as to
give the best results from every ounce
of fuel consumed. We will be pleased
to show them to you.
