'My fif sold Rickey and 3,500 wood stoves last year," says a Old-fashioned wood-burning stoves are hot selling items these days. Upset by soaring utility bills in a bitterly cold winter, cost-conscious homeowners are making collectors' items out of those vintage potbellied and Franklin stoves that once warmed railroad stations and country school- houses, the National Geographic Society reports. "We bought an old secondhand parlor stove to heat the living room of our little rambler," recalls a man in a small Ohio town. "To our amazement, the stove shed heat throughout the house.

Most people continued to use fireplaces for cooking and heating. Heating problems in the New World were, if anything, worse than those in Europe. Early American colonists with coal stoves had to import all their coal from Europe. First Lady Abigail Adams wrote plaintively: "Surrounded with forests, can you believe that wood is not to be had, because people cannot be found to cut and cart it?" She noted that her household had "recourse to coals; but we cannot get grates made and set. We have, indeed, come into a new countrT." Injamia Franklin became America's heating hero, Fed up with fireplaces--"man is scorched before, while he is froze behind"--he invented a portable iron fireplace that protruded into the room and cast much more heat than a recessed fireplace. Today modern variations of his "Miraculous stove" have never been more popular.
