Health and Good Looks !
Kitchen work has a lot to do with health and good looks. A woman
cannot work overtime In a furnace-llte kitchen, with a wood range In
hot weather without paying the penalty.
The drudgery, the long hours, the extreme heat, the smoke and ashes,
will cut down her energy and matae her prematurely old. In face and
form. ,. '' .'' , ' ... .. .
This Is a fact that cannot be disputed and all of us can call to mind '
many examples. Every, woman who cooks Is entitled to an electric
range, and) she gets one, too, where the man of the hous bag her
welfare at heart xv v.. ';,.'.. ,'
An electrie range means a cool, clean kitchen, a fire without a mln.
nte'g wait that Can be regulated with a thumb-screw meals In half
the time and no fuel to handle or ashes to contend with.
Our special rate to users of our electric ranges, make, them as econ
omical to nse as wood. Ask about them. ';
