The farmer and liis wife were about to sit down to a

The good wife was equal to the occasion—thanks to
her New Perfection Oil Cook-stove.
She had it lit in a moment, and her guests hardly were seated
on the porch before a hearty hot meal was ready for the table —
sausages and eggs and long rashers of streaky bacon, and rolls just
crisped in the oven and fresh coffee —and the hostess herself as cool
and neat as if she had not been near the kitchen.
She never could have managed it with an old-fashioned range.
