the premature and unwarranted action

that from no other source can coma to
our youth the moral tone and training
which tne wora or uod'orrers, and that
we declare ourselves heartily lb favor
of . the appointment of an impartial
board or committee to whom- might be
delegated the choice of suitable and ap
propriate readings for the purposes
above mentioned." ,

Gentlemen: About a year ago a furnace was put into my house by a
so called "furnace man" and guaranteed to heat well nine or ten rooms.
It was a moBt unsatisfactory piece of work and -could not have heated
comfortably a five room cottage, and 1 sold the whole apparatus for Junk.
After making a thorough' trial of the' new wood furnace which you
have since installed in my house at S91 B. 21th St., this city, I want to
say to you that it is the best furnace I have ever seen in any house. A
fire in it Is very easy to start, and it consumes less fuel-than any fur
nace I have ever used. . : . .. ; , '' (''"''
It Is a pleasure both to pay a man for such a satisfactory piece of
work and to recommend this furnace to any one in search of a good
heating apparatus. Sincerely yours, T. M. WORl.
