  • Notes 
    • The McEachren Heating and Ventilating Co.

      This is a young and enterprising firm doing business in the large, substantial brick building on West Main street, formerly occupied by Messrs. Cant Bros. This firm is engaged in the manufacture of heating and ventilating appliances. The heating appliance is a new and wonderful one indeed, and is well named The Little Wonder, and takes its name for the following reasons :

      1st\emdash It is the smallest hot water boiler in the market of equal heating capacity.

      2nd.\emdash It is the wonder of all who see it, that such a small boiler using such a small quanity of fuel, should heat such a large space, and get up the required, heat so quickly.

      3rd. \emdash All practical observers wonder at such an efficient, neat and durable hot water heating system being supplied at such a small cost.

      It is held by patents issued in 1885, and are stamped "Little Wonder, J. D. McEachren, Galt, Ont., Pat. 1895." The firm has been in existence since May 1896. The large experience and inventive genius of Mr. J. D. McEachren, and the young vim of Mr. W. D. Sheldon assure the success of the new firm beyond a peradventure.1a
