highwayman, whose gang is feared
and dreaded by the ollieials of the
railroad. His conversion is effected
at the bedside of his dying mother,

sensational ride, overtakes the run

Perfection Oil Cook Stove Week.
An oil cook stove assures that your kitchen will stay cool even in the hottest sum
mer weather, because the heat of the stove is concentrated on the cooking.
There is no smoke or odor; no dust or dirt. And you have all the convenience of gas.
Lights at the touch of a match and heats in a jitTy. More convenient than coal or
wood. Better and more economical cooking all the year round.
Look for the Big Blue Discs in your dealer's window. Co in and ask about oil cook
