...a little Aladdin History
Eighty years ago, a very small boy on a Nebraska farm read and re-read the Arabian Nights story of Aladdin in a room of darkness but for the flickering yellow light of an open flame "coal oil lamp". Several years later that boy, grown to manhood, found a lamp that erased the darkness with a soft white light and it was only natural that he named the lamp "Aladdin." An appropriate name, indeed, for this revolutionary boom to rural America seemed nothing short ofmagical in the intensity of its light.
For those who lit the lamp, trimmed its wich and cleaned its chimney, or just enjoyed its friendly glow, the Aladdin recalls many memories of golden childhood. It made learning possible for many boys and girls: made it possible for them to acquire aspirations.
Later, Aladdin brought this white light to every kind of habitat in every corner of the globe. For many, it has been the only light of their entire life. Even when electricity comes, there are a loyal few who profess to use the electric light only "to find the match" to light their Aladdin.

Aladdin Mantle System
The Aladdin is constructed on highly scientific principles. Kerosene fuel is changed into a vapor and then mixed with air in the proper proportions of 16 to 1 to produce a blue flame. Heat from the blue flame is magically transformed into light by elements in the Aladdin incandescent mantle.
Light - Aladdin light - is equal to 10 ordinary, flat wick lamps. Its mantle produces 60 candlepower - a light that is soft, mellow and of a qualitythat is welcoming to the human eye. The foremost laboratories of the world have proven that Aladdin light is closet to natural sunlight when compared to artificial electric or gas light.
Light from an Aladdin is truly a pleasure. There is no smoke, no odor, no noise, and of course, no need for pumping! A match and a nimute is all it takes to erase the darkness and create a romantic and comforting glow.
