STEWART'S COOKING STOVE.
Stewart's Large Oren,
SUMMER AND WINTER COOKING STO VE.
TJEFOIfE offering this superior Cook
ing Stove for sale in this market,
the subscriber thoroughly tested its
capacity, he having had one in use
more than one year before lie offered
them for sale. Having satisfied him
self that the STEWART IMPROVED
NEWLY PATENTED COOKING
STOVE was superior in every repect
: —that it would bake to perfection ;
broil, fry, stew and roast better, quick
er and with one-half of the labor re
quired with any other cooking appara
tus yet invented, to say nothing about
tho great saving of fuel—only one
quarter of the fuel being required that
is used with other stoves—and having
satisfied himself, by experimenting
and by applying extraordinary de
grees of heat, that the stove would
last four times longer than any ether
stove ; then I offered them for sale,
under a lull guarantee to perform as
recommended, 110 price being required
untiHhe parties purchasing were sat'
islied. On these terms I have sold
over 500 of thorn since the 1st of Oc
tober last. They have given univer
sal satisfaction; for prouf, the-sales
are regularly increasing.
So well satisfied am 1 that the Stew
art Stove cannot be superseded or
equaled—until the new patents expire,
which will be in 1869—that I expect
every good housekeeper in Louisiana
and Mississippi will adopt them, and
with a view of meeting the demand 1
have made arrangements with the pat
entee and manufacturer for a supply
of Five Thousand of them.
If there are- any parties that have
them in use that do not realize the
benefits to tho extent I have set forth
in my advertisements and recommen
dations, it would afford 1110 pleasure
to explain tho working of this extra-«
ordinary Cooking Stove to those re
siding in the country. It not being
convenient for them to call, I would
refer them to article 9th, 011 page
tenth, in the book of directions for
keeping fire over night and for saving
of fuel at other times.rfiueThis male
newly patented; the other important
new patent is that of a constant flow
of cold air on to the outside of the fire
box. This works itself without any
movement of dampers or valves, and
is constant when the fire box is at all
heated It becomes heated air and
passes into the oven and heats that,
rises to the top of tho stove to assist
the cooking there, and by an appro
priate use of tin? top reflector it is used
over again, making this constant flow
of cold air available three times. In
all other cooking stoves and ranges
the heat so generated is wasted and
Hows into the room to damage tho ope
rator. The above described Hues,
valves and cold air receivers are new
ly patented; no other stove or range
can have these important improve
ments until Mr. Stewart's patent ex
pires.
I desire that parties that have pur
chased should work it up to its (rapac
ity, so as to realize all of the benefits
intended by the inventor and patentee

What I Claim For
Tin: STEWART'S STOVE.
1. That Conking for a family can be
done with one-fourth part of tho fuel
that is required by any other cooking
stove, and with one-eighth part requir
ed with a. cooking range.
2. \\ ith one-halt the labor required
by any other cooking utensil.
3. 1 Ii at the eooluMg anil baking can
be done better ami Tn less time than
it can be done with any other uten
sil.
And finally, that the kitchen can be
kept nearly at the same tenîperature
as any other room in the house, so that
it is a pleasure for any lady to super
intend her cooking department.
All of the above is claimed and
guaranteed, provided the directions
are observed.
