It gives us much pleasure to announce that we have 
added additional facilities and 10,000 square feet ad- 
ditional floor space to our plant to take care of the re- 
quirements of our patronage even better than we have 
done in the past.

The Story 

of 

a Good Awning 



Evolution in Store Front Architecture, which found its 
perfection in the modern daylight up-to-date store front, 
brought about unusual conditions and requirements for 
an awning for such a store front. For ten years or more 
this demand for such an awning existed. Awning manu- 
facturers all over the United States and Canada were 
wrestling with this new problem without avail, until the 
good awning was invented which today is known as 
ANTON'S LATERAL. Invented and introduced not 
quite twelve years ago. its VALUE and MERIT can ap- 
proximately be estimated by the fact that today about 
THREE MILLION DOLLARS worth of ANTONYS 
LATERAL AWNINGS are in use in the United 
States alone. There is NO store awning just as good * 
and the most unusual thing about ANTON'S LAT- 
ERAL AWNING is that they cost less than other 
awnings for which claim is made that they meet the 
same requirements. Agents wanted everywhere. Cor- 
respondence solicited and prices furnished upon appli- 
cation.

The Modern Front MINUS a Modern 

Transom Bar 




^■P^HE SKETCH above shows a modern prism plate glass store 
\^ front, with a transom bar as much out of date as only lack of 
knowledge can devise it. Thousands of fronts are built every 
year similar to the illustration above. The awning is supposed to be 
carried by and fastened to the weak and flimsy transom bar, in 
construction so light that often it will not carry the weight of the 
window light. It is out of the question to expect such a faulty 
design and construction to stand the strain of an awning. 

The picture above shows how to overcome the difficulty in a satisfactory and 
highly efficient manner, by transferring the strain to the I Beam or wood jamb 
above, A is a steel bar %xl4 inches, fastened on top by means of one bolt or 
lag-screw, and on the bottom to plate B by means of two rivets. B is a plate % 
inch thick, one edge turned to receive the bar A. The plate B, aside from being 
riveted to bar A, is fastened on the bottom with two wood screws to the weak 

transom bar C. The plate B is provided with holes to receive the hanger bracket 

of Anton's Lateral Arm or other roller fixtures.

INSTRUCTIONS 

FOR FINDING PRICES OF PORCH AND 
STORE AWNING COVERS 




Measurements for HEIGHT from Figures 1 to 2. 

Measurements for PROJECTION from Figures 2 to 3. 

Measurements for FRONT from Figures 3 to 4. 

In figuring on Awning Covers note: 

1st: The sum of the Height and Projection. 

2nd: The Width of Front. 

f ■ 

METHOD: Add the feet and inches of Height to the feet and inches of the Projec- 
tion. (Example— Height 6 feet 2 inches plus Projection, 6 feet 2 inches— 12 feet 4 
inches. ) 

As prices are figured in even feet onlv, take next higher scale; as in example 13 foot 
rate should be used. Locate the figure "13" under heading "SUM OF HEIGHT AND 
PROJECTIOM" at the top of column. Follow down this column until you Igcate the 
number representing the feet of FRONT measurement. Where front measurements exceed 
the foot measurement over 4 inches take next highest scale. 

Directions for Putting Up Regular Style Gear Roller A^vnings 

Determine the place where the awning fastens to- the building at the extreme right and left ends 
at the top The end at wiiich the gear box is to be placed, fasten the cog gear for top. On the 
opposite end place the end bracket. The bearings of these two parts must be m perfect hne. After 
these parts are securely fastened, draw a line from center of cog gear to bracket, across the buildmg; 
ascertain how many center supports you have, divide the extreme widths into as many equal parts 
as there are center supports. 

The center supports consist of top and bottom part; the lower part of the supports is the one that 
has several rollers on it, while the top part has but one roller. Place the center support in position, 
allowing space for the roller between them. After center supports are fastened place the long roller 
in position, and fasten securely at each end, then tack the cloth on the roller, allowing the cloth to 
roll over, not under. Be careful to get tlie cloth to come straight. By measuring from the front 
bracket to the roller you will get the equal distance all along. Do not be guided by the upper edge ot 
the canvas, for it is not always straight. 

After the cloth is fastened to the roller, place the joints or hinges on the building at proper dis- 
tance from ih elop, then i)ut the front pole in the bracket provided at the front above the scalloped 
curtain. Then fasten llie extcntling arms through the front pool to the joints, winch you have lastened 
to the building. Attach the gear rod to the top gear, then fasten the winding box, so the lower end 
of the gear rod will fit right into the gear box. Tighten up all bolts and your awning is ready lor 
operation.

Regular Style Bevel Gear 
Roller Awnings 




^^ BEVEL GEAR ROLLER AWNING is popular because it operates easily and does 
WJ not get out of order. It has a neat appearance and is made for service. 

We use only the very best of fixtures and make the Awnings extremely rigid. 

If re-inforcing bands are wanted on the covers, add one foot to the front of the cover 
for each band, when finding price. 

Bevel gear roller awning covers priced on pages 20 and 21. 

Bevel gear roller awning frames priced on page 22. 

Directions for Measuring Bevel Gear Roller Awnings 

First determine the place where joints of frame should be fastened to the building; which should be 

7 feet from the side walk. Then measure from where the frame fastens at the top (1 to 2) ; then 

measure from where the joints fasten to the building where awning is to project (2 to 3). The last 
measurement is the width of the awning, as illustrated (3 to 4). 

State if awning fastens to wood, stone, brick or iron. Also if in line %vith the upright column. Also 
advise what material is in the columns.

Chain Gear Roller Awnings 




€HIS STYLE AWNING is popular; it operates easily and is easily 
repaired if it gets out of order. 

The Chain Gear Roller Awnings are the same price as the Regular 
style Gear Roller Awnings, and you may figure them on the same list 
which appears on pages 20 and 21 for Covers. Page 22 for Fixtures. 

The Directions for measuring and putting up are also the same. 

You Will Notice that the Roller Awnings are illustrated without ends, but if ends 
are wanted specify right or left end. This can be determined by standmg m front ot. 
the Awning facing it. 

If ends are not especially needed we do not recommend them, because Roller Awnings 
work more smoothly without them. 

Always specify on your order whether ends are wanted or not.

Automatic Roller A^vnings 




i^Wi^HIS STYLE AWNING is dp«igned for use on low store fronts. It is used on the same style 
ill fronts as the Anton-Lateral, but we do not recommend it as highly as the Anton-Lateral for 
^^^the reason, that it is not as neat and not as practical. It is a little less expensive and for this 
reason we list it. 

It is used when more of a projection is needed than height. The illustration shows that a slide 
rod is used instead of a hinge joint on the building, so that the end of the arm will slide, up or down 
and allow the Awning to open or fold up. 

This style Awning can be used either with cog gear, or chain roller. 

Directions for measuring and putting up ie the same as common roller awnings, except the Auto- 
matic arrangement, which is very simple as shown on illustration. 

The Automatic Roller A\sming was used exclusively before the Anton-Lateral was designed. We 
believe that eventually the Anton-Lateral Awning will take the place of the Automatic Roller Awning 
altogether. 

Automatic Roller Awning cover prices on pages 20 and 21, 

Automatic Roller Aiming Fixtures, use bevel gear roller awning fixturo Hst and add slide rods/ 
to list before taking oflf discount. On page 22.

DIRECTIONS FOR PLTTING UF. 

First determine where the Awning is to be fastened at the top, and measure the top to where ^he joint fast- 
ens on the building. (1 to 2.) If the columns are wood fasten the joints on with screws. If stone or brick make 
holes about three mches deep, and fasten with expansion bolts; if iron it would have to be fl",^^ and tapped Be 
careful to have joints In line and if any column atands back, put in long Joints on the col^^l^^.^^^^^^f ° ^^^^.^^

Automatic Rope Pull Up Awnings 




^ 



AUTOMATIC Rope Pull Up Awnings pull up with ropes, pulleys, or glass rings. This style 
Aiming is used on a low modern store front when more projection is needed than^the height 
will allow on a regular rope pull up Awning. - 



You will notice that at the end of the bar on the building a slide rod is used instead of a hinge 
joint, so that the end of the arm will slide up or do™ and allow the Awning to open or fold up. 
This' slide rod will measure in height the same distance as the difference between the height and 
projection of the Awcing. 

This style Awning is to be measured the same as the Regular style rope pull up A^vning, but the 
projection will be more than the heighth measurement, for instance, three feet from (1 to 2) and 
six feet from (2 to 3). I 

Automatic Rope PuU Up Awnings are sometimes used on windows, and residence porches when the 
measurements require it. 

Use Rope Pull Cover Hst (page 28 and 29) for figuring prices on Automatic Rope Pull Up 
Awning Covers. 

Use Rope Pull Frame list (page 30) plus price for slide rods. 

Discount applies on list on the different style patterns of goods. 

We will gladly furnish samples of materials on request. 

When ordering awnings always fiill in the specifications on the order blank. 



Directions for Putting Up 

Directions for putting up the regular style rope pull up awnings will apply to this style awning 
with the exception of screwing on the short sHde rods that attach to the building.

Price List of Awning Frames 

For Topeka Rope Pull -Up 
Porch, Store and Window Awnings 

Frames for rope pull-up awnings are figured on the lineal ft. of material used, for 
example: An awning with a 6 ft. projection and 12 ft. length will take 24 lineal ft. of 
pipe, because there will be two propecting arms 6 ft. each (one on each end) and 12 
ft of front pipe. On rope pull-up awnings over 12 ft. long, it is necessary to have three 
projecting arms, and a wood front pole. If there is no place to fasten an arm between 
each end arm we can make a brace on each end arm which will make the fram strong and 
rigid. We use dififcrent size iron as follows in different size of awning frames: 

%" Iron for all iintU awning framei up to a 3'6* projection and 6* length. 

%'' Iron for awning frames from 3'6' projection and 6' lengths up to 5' projection 

with T length, 
%" Pipe for awning frames of up to 4' projection by lO' length. 
^A" Pipe for awning frames from 4' projection by 10' length to 6' projection by ^2' 

length. 
^^ Pipe is used for projection arms on large store and porch awning frames which have a 

wood front pole.

^i" Pipe, per lineal foot ^'^^ 

WOOD FRONT BAR uaed with iron or pipe arms, per lineal ft. 50c 



HEAD RODS 

When window awnings are to be fastened to iron or stone buildings it is necessary* 
to have an iron head rod at the top which is fastened to the building at each end of the 
awning. In this case awning covers are made with a pocket at the top for the rod to slip 
through. 

Head Rods %* iron with eyebolts, per lineal ft 52c 



FOR AUTOMATIC ROPE PULL UP AWNING FIXTURES 

Add to the total list of iron used for each slide rod needed:

WINDOW AWNINGS FOR 

APARTMENTS 




Box Awnings 

(Generally termed Double Frame Awnings) 



Spring Shade Awnings ^ 





Box or Double Frame Awnings are used for 
doors or French windows that open outward. 
They are more expensive than the common rope 
pull-up awnings because they require double 
n-ames, and much more material to make them. 
Box awnings are very attractive, and were original- 
ly designed in Europe. For figuring prices on 
box awnings use the list on page 34 for covers, 
and add 50%. For figuring frames add price for 
one extra frame because it takes two frames to 
operate these awnings. 



Spring Shade Awnings are operated by means 
of a spring roller fastened in the center of the 
goods. On opening the awning the top half raises 
and the lower half projects. They are easily 
operated but are not as popular as the regular 
style rope pull-up window awning. We can 
furnish them in all sizes and in all colors of 
material. If interested in this style awning, write 
for prices giving full specifications.

CURTAINS

CLOSE

TIGHT 

CH 



>f^N ACCOUNT of the constant demand for sleeping porch curtains that embody the advantages 

Ilb3 of t^^e spring roller curiain at a lesser price than the spring roller curtain, we have, after 

\VJ much endeavor, succeeded in making sleeping porch curtains that operate from the bottom 

^*^ upwards the same as the spring roller curtains. These curtains are what we call our slidmg 

curtains. 

The sliding curtains when not in use are folded away on the lower edge of the opening of sleep- 
ing porch and by means of cords are easily operated, working from the bottom up. They may be 
used at any height, closing up part of the opening, or in case of stormy or inclement weather may be 
drawn up all the way to the top, thus shutting out entirely the elements and offermg full and ample 
protection. 

Cloth is permanently fastened at the bottom and has a wood slat in top pockets to which ropes 
are attached and run through glass rings which are attached at the top of the opening, and makes the 
curtain easily raised and lowered. 

The heavy wire which is used on each side of the curtain and at three feet intervals between, 
helps- to hold the cloth close to the wood work and makes the curtain securely tight, especially in 
stormy weather. 

These curtains can be put on inside or outside of porch and if they are put on the outside the 
ropes can be run through the screen frame and the curtain can be raised or lowered from the niside. 

These curtains are the most practical and durable curtains made and they are less expensive than 
a Spring Roller Curtain; and they never get out of order. 

One curtain can.be made to cover two or tluree widnows and operate just as easy, and make them 
more secure. 

Multiply width of curtain by height of curtain for number of square feet. For prices per square 
foot complete including all fixtures see price sheet in front. 

Directions for Measuring Sliding Curtains 

Determine where the bottom and the top of the curtain is to attach, and take the measuremens very accu- 
rate. Then take the actual measurement in width, exactly the width the curtain is to be (not just the open 
space that it Is to cover) as it should cover over about an inch on the up and down columns, so that It will cover 
up the entire space. 

If one curtain is to cover two or three windows kindly advise so that we can make a rod for each center casing.

Roller Curtains 

for Sleeping Porches, Verandas, Etc. 




€ 



VERY residence should have its porches and verandas equipped with 
curtains. 



Roller curtains will give service and are very reasonable in price. They 
are made from attractive patterns in stripes or plain colors. 

They are easily operated and can be rolled up all or part of the way, and \^en closed 
completely up they secure privacy, and keep out the elements of bad weather. 

These curtains are sometimes called Plain Drop Roller curtains or Common Roller Cur- 
tains, 

They are made with a pocket in the bottom to insert a wood roller and are fastened 
at the top by means of grommets and screw eyes. The rope running through the glass 
rings at the top performs the operation of raising and lowering it. 

We use only the very best materials obtainable in making these curtains. 

We will furnish samples on request. 

Directions for Measuring and Prices on Roller Curtains 

Measure the entire space the curtain is to cover and give us the length from (1 to 2) and width 
(2 to 3). 

For figuring the price on these curtains, multiply the number of feet in the length by the number of 
of feet in the width for the square feet. For price per square foot complete on different material includ- 
ing all fixtures, see price sheet in front.

Directions and Information on Spring Roller Curtains Illustrated Above 



When measuring for spring rollers, please give entire width across from outside to outside of all 
roller fixtures, also, height up and down of space curtain is to cover. One inch space must be allowed 
at each end for bracket to fasten, and still give room for cloth to lap onto the woodwork. 

Spring roller curtains will either work from the bottom up or from the top down. 

Prices quoted on the discoimt sheet per square foot, are for curtains complete, except the spring 
roller. The spring rollers are priced separately, and are to be added after the material is figured. 

AH curtains over 7 ft. have a much larger roller which increases the cost proportionally. 

On ciurtains above 12 ft. up to 15 ft. inclusive, we again increase the size of the roller which makes 
the prices higher. 

We use only the very best heavy metal spring roller which is a little more expensive than the 
commonly used wood roller, but metal rollers will give many times the service of wood rollers. 

Prices listed on discount sheet just under front cover.

use only first quality, full weight materials and manufacture them in the best manner that 
highly skilled labor can produce.

How to use Preservo 

Preserve is a compound that makes any canvas water-proof, mildew-proof. Preservo-treatcd canvas 
won't rot. It can't! There's nothing to harden or stiff^en the canvas — it leaves it pliable^ soft and odor- 
less. 

To apply Preservo — have the fabric DRY. Preservo must be thoroughly mixed and kept stirred 
while being used. 

In cold weather, if Preservo is too thick or dries too slowly, it may be thinned with a little turmoline 
or naptha. • 

General Directions 

Preservo may be applied direct from a bucket, with an ordinary whitewash or paint brush, or it 
may be sprinkled upon the canvas from a watering can, but in either case the Preservo must be well 
rubbed into the fabric. 

One gallon is sufficient for 100 square feet of 10 or 12 ounce canvas. 

Must Be Thoroughly Stirred While Using 

Where several pieces are to be treated, it is desirable to spread them flat, full size, one on top of 
the other, so that any surplus running through may be taken up by the canvas beneath, and not be 
wasted. As soon as one piece is treated, it should be removed and allowed to dry.

"TRAVELER" 

AUTOMOBILE TENT 



"The Traveler" Auto Tent is one of the most 
roomy tents made. The walls in the rear are 
high, making standing room in any part of the 
tent. The center is 8 ft. high, and the rear is 
6 ft. 

The top is very steep so that it makes it im- 
possible for any water to remain on the top of 
the tent. You will be thoroughly protected from 
the most severe storms. 

We furnish these tents with small round jointed 
poles which are carried in a canvas bag. The 
awning in front is extra large and can be used 
for this purpose or for covering over the car, like 
shown in illustration. 

A bobbinett window is placed in the back with 
a flap which will raise or lower from the inside. 
This affords ventilation and plenty of light. 

"The Traveler' Auto Tent will accommodate two 
"Rex" Auto Camp Beds. 

Guaranteed full weight 36 in. duck.

THEY WILL NOT BREAK 

AH Steel Construction 

Built entirely of steel — lined with flexible 
blue Amalite with its porcelain-like surface 
— Stanley vacuum products will not break. 

Sanitary 

Completely sanitary — The pure blue Ama- 
lite lining of Stanley products has all the 
sanitary qualities of glass with none of its 
fragile qualities. Stanley products are single 
units, with no removable parts and no un- 
sealed openings into which liquids may leak 
and cause rust or foulness. 

Stanley construction makes cleansing of 
containers easy and sure. 

The Thrift Buy 

First cost is last cost — while the initial 
cost of Stanley products is slightly more 
than with glass vacuum containers, the first 
cost of a Stanley is the final cost. There 
are no fillers to break or be replaced, there 
are no repairs to to be made, and there are 
no upkeep charges whatever. 

For Every Use 

Stanley Ferrostat vacuum products^ are 
suitable as constant companions — indoors or 
outdoors — for sport or work — for busihess 
or pleasure. The quart container is guaran- 
teed on an eighteen-hour basis.

CAMP FIRE SUGGESTIONS 

THE CAMP FIRE 

As a rule, hard woods make good, slow- 
burning fuel that yields coals, and soft woods 
make a quick, hot fire that is soon spent. 
Best of all fire woods is hickory, green or 
dry. For a cooking fire that will burn 
quickly to coals, without smoke, the bark of 
dead hemlock, hickory, pine or sugar maple 
cannot be excelled. 

To make a fire burn well you must have 
air. The fuel must not be tumbled together; 
it must be built systematically, so that air 
can draw under it, and upward through it. 

The best way to build a fire quickly and 
one that is sjire to keep on burning as long 
as it is fed, is first to lay two good-sized 
sticks on the ground as a foundation, then 
across them at right angles lay a course of 
dry twigs or splinters not quite touching 
each other; on these, at one side, place your 
tinder o_f paper, bark or whatever.it may be; 
then on top of this put two other cross-sticks 
smaller than the bed-sticks; over this a 
cross layer of larger twigs, and so on, 
gradually increasing the size of the sticks. 
Such a pile will roar within a few minutes 
after a match is touched to it.

A FEW PRACTICAL RECEIPTS 

COFFEE — Use one teaspoonfui of ground coffee fcrr 
each cup ot water, and then add an extra one for good 
measure. Put on in cold water and allow to boil up 
just once. Serve hot. 

FRIED PISH. GAME OR FRESH MEAT — Clean 
well. Roll in meal or flour, and fry in hot fat. Salt 
when nearly done. Never salt fresh meats before- 
hand, and always fry in hot grease or fat. 

FRIED POTATOES — Slice and fry in hot fat as 
above. Season and serve hot. 

BOILED POTATOES — Put in cold water, and boil 
unitl they begin to burst open. Drain them well; dry 
and serve. 

BAKED POTATOES' — Place in Oven and bake until 
you can easily pierce them with a fork or stick, when 
they are done. 

BROILING MEAT— Have a bed of hot Uve coals (do 
not try to broil over a flame Are). Place the slices 
of meat in a Meat Broiler, and thun put the Broiler 
on side rails inside of stove. Turn frequently until 
broiled to suit. Season when nearly done. 

BAKED BEANS — Soak beans over night always. 
Then place them in an earthen preserve jar with a 
few pieces of pork or bacon. Add a little hot water. 
Bake from one to three hours — the longer, the better. 

Stale bread and biscuits can be made fresh by 
wrapping in a damp cloth and placing In the oven 
for a little while. Never throw your stale bread away. 
Just dip it in salt water and fry in hot fat until real 
brown, both sides. It. Is fine.
