Number Installed in 1905 Broke All Records.

The year 1905 again gave strong evidence of the great public favor gained by the Floral City Heaters sold by the Monroe Hardware Co., for more were put into homes and business places in the city and county than in any other previous year, although it had been hardly expected that last year's number would be exceeded. This speaks well not only for the energy of the hardware firm but the merits of the heaters as well. The following is the list of heaters installed in the county during the past season:
