A large entry and stairway have also been kept at the same temperatures. The sizes of the rooms warmed are as follows:

Office, 20 x 20 feet, Dining Room, 17 x 17 feet, Small Parlor, 18 x 15 ) Large Parlor, 23 X 25 feet, Nursery, 15 x 17 feet, Chamber, 20 X 21 feet, Entry and Stairway, 7 x 52 feet. Ceilings 13 feel

In all these rooms we have had a superabundance of heat in the coldest of weather, and have rarely required the ney draft to be more than half opened, and much of the time the ventilator to the flue has had to be closed, so as to di the draft.

The fire has never been extinguished, and hence we have saved $10 worth of kindling wood. The coal consumed hale exactly the same as was required to run my OLD FURNACE DURING THE DAYTIME ONLY, while the available has been far more than the old furnace could produce in that condition.

I should think we had MOBE THAN DOUBLE THE HEAT that our former furnace supplied.

I cannot give the amount of water evaporated, since my basin is supplied by automatic apparatus, but the moisture c' air in our house has been just right for comfort and health, and there has been no excess of deposit on the glass of the dows, as would have been the case had there been a surplus of water evaporated by the furnace. We have not had a water-pipe

freeze this winter, though in former winters that troublesome accident was a frequent com rence, very annoying to us and injurious to the house.

I do not know but that better furnaces can be made, but I can say that this is the best one I have ever seen, and I b examined nearly all the new ones which have been offered to the public in Boston for some years past. Respectfully your obedient servant,
