bear in mind itt that matched are
cheaper than gas. Don't leave a
burner lightod beeauao you will need
it in five or ten minutes. Turn it
off an soon aa you are through using
it; then light it again when you are
roody. Don't light up and then go
oti to fill your kKtlu or got out your
frying pan. IJavo all in readiness
beforo )-ou light the lhuno. Don't
uae tlvo largo burners when the
smaller one? or the aimmerer will
do jo**t ah well. Turn tho burners |
<lown so bh to uso only what gas is
needed. Sco thut the llamo is blue,
not rod. Tho red flume iri wasteful,
indicating imperfect combustion.
If any of tlvo burner holes fill up,
dean them out with n wiro or remove
uud boll in a solution of
strong soda and water. This last
treatnvont cannot l>o give*i, however,
