Now that the three year homestead

Spring weather demands that 3ou rid your kitchen of so much heat as possible,
and yourself of as much trouble. A Cabinet Gas Range makes the kitchen the
handiest, cleanest, easiest workshop that a woman ever had to do with.
The Housewife gets her largest meal in 40 minutes. She does it cheaply because
there are two ovens, both heated by one flame.
A GAS WATER HEATER attached to a tank will give her hot water right
from the faucet for cooking, washing dishes and cleaning, at an insigiiificr.nt ex
pense. SO GIVE THE OLD STOVE "ITS NOTICE" AND ORDER A CABINET
