Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 14, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta Some stoves need as much poking and urging as an " old-tkate" hone, Such stoves waste fuel, waste time, spoil the cooking, exasperate the spirit and make the whole household go wrong. All that kind of bother and delay and disappointment are unknown where they use a THOUGHT R^NGE So simple a child can operate it. One damper heats the oven ; another increases the fire ; other dampers so check down thb fuel contumptlon that a fire-box of coal will last from twelve to sixteen honn. When you want a hot fire in a hurry, this atove will give you one in five minutes. A little girl or a little boy can be taught to operate a Happy Thought Range without any trouble. -Every Happy Thought bums coal or wood. Ask your dealer about the simplici^ of Happy Thoughts.
