I just collapsed and started
to cry. I wanted to be such
a good wife, but. .
11 That hot kitchen . . . was just too much
forme. The summer heat was bad enough,
but my old red-hot cook stove made cook
ing unbearable. And that wasn't all . . .
I had to carry in fuel, light the fire, and
clean up the soot and grime.
wCco electric COOking was my salva
tion. That beautiful new electric range
of mine cooks the food not me. No more
carrying in fuel, either. And, of course,
there's no mess to clean up, for electric
cooking is as clean as electric light!"
