MARVELLOUS PAMPHENGOS Unquestionably the finest oil lighted lantern extant. Further improvements. Greater volume of light. Cannot be equalled or surpissed. WHY IS THE PAMPHENGOS SUPERIOR TO ALL OTHERS ?—Because it is carefully and scientifically constructed, and not made commercially and sold under a variety of nom de plumes. Because it’sa pure white light. Because the coniodal glasses resist heat and are proof against fracture. Because, being technical, you can do without dampers or chimney lengtheners, which are evils to be eschewed. Because lanternists, by experience, are finding its true value and know it to be reliable and safe. Because it gives agood 12 to 14 feet disc unparalleled (See testimonials and opinions of the Press), therefore will largely take the place of limelight and thus save the risk W4H2 2=) and danger of gas explosions. Do not have any other lantern or lamp than the MARVELLOUS PAMPHENGOS, a really superb, substantial and effective instrument. Waste not your money on inferior imitations, This has stood the test over fourteen years, and we can challenge comparison for purity of light, for ease in manipulation, and safety in use.
