ELECTRIC RANGES. <?
f
The elecl;ric range is about to
t swoop down upon the housewives of
Abbeville, according to Mr. E. M.
Anderson, superintendent of the
ni-.j?? - t n * *
Aiecuic .uejjuruiieiiu
foot content with given electric
light users one of the lowest rates
in the country for electric cooking
i service, he ha? arranged with an ex8
pert in .electric cookery, Mr. F. H.
- Lansdell of Atlanta, and Chicago,
- to spend three or four weeks instructing
the housewives in the use
of the range.
t Some weeks ago, by action of the
s city council, it was decided to grart
a rate of less thian three cents per
^ unit for current used for cookery
purposes.
, According to Mr. Anderson, it
will actually be cheaper for people
^ to do their cooking with electricity,;
t than with coal or oil. As an average j
he estimates the bills for a family
of five as less than three dollars per
month. T
Coming at this time, he believes
that this step will be the means of
saving a great amount of oil, as the
r current used here is generated by
water power. v ' - =
Furthermore, it will mean the solu'*
tion to the servant problem, as many
^ housewives will see fit to dispense
" with their help, if they are relieved
of the drudgery of firing a coal
* stove and an unbearably hot kitchen
3 in the summer.
It is-'claimed that the use of an
s ronoro will not raise the tem
I CtCVUiv awi.qv
jperature of the kitchen one degree, jj
r In addition it is absolutely clean <1
e and free from dirt and ashes.
8 . After a thorough investigation of if
a electric ranges made in a trip to |
3 Atlanta, Mr. Anderson states that }
he will guarantee this device to be f
n cleaner, safer, more convenient, |
t} cooler in every respect than any ||
' I other cooking apparatus. In addi- |]
tjtion it will produce scientific results |L
* IH1MW
in all cooking operations. ' ?a
Many prominent housewives in j
Abbeville have signified their inten-1
a tion of installing this twentieth
century cooking marvel in their
i kitchens. The ranges are being i
| shown at the Electric Light plant'sJ i
d j offices. i L*1
