Give a thought to the comfort of your wife
during' the hot months ahead of h?r. Kitchen
work is necessary, but it can be made more
pleasant for her by eliminating much of the
surplus heat. Buy a gas or oil burner. They
are inexpensive, and she can accomplish won?
ders with one. Kitchens are hot places at
best, and too much heat saps the vitality of
life..
They make
work easy.
They make
work a
pleasu re.
They make
work
profitable.
They are
inexpensive.
They are in
great demand.
