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.
