The Secret ol the popularity ol this range
lies in the fact that it hums gas in the hot, stifling
summer, and coal or coke in the bleak, cold winter.
When you examine it you will understand why it
will do this, using the same oven. With many
ranges this is still an experiment, but with the
Round Oak 3-Fuel it is an accomplishment.
9 With this range, if desired, both coal and gas can
be used at the same time. When you shut off the
gas you automatically close the intake of air under
the oven, which assures the uniform baking oven for
coal. This same improvement also guarantees there
can be no explosion in this range in using gas.
Let us show you this range and explain its many
good points.
cr checked the advance; "Lizzie" gave
out a cough and stopped dead still.
Just ahead in the road the two occu
pants of the car beheld a white ob
ject moving about.
One of the young men felt that an
investigation was necessary and he
climbed from his seat and advanced
toward the "spook" with a hope of
eliminating whatever it was that stood
in the path of the journey homeward.
The white object receded for a dis
tance but finally refused to retreat
farther. Right here the investigation
ceased, the young man decidad that
if there was anything in the ghost
theory this was sufficient proof. Ru
mors have it that just at this stage
of the excitement the young man look
ed about and saw the .ghost advancing
and in no scteonds flat he was again j
seated in the clucking Ford. j5
Then "Lizzie" came to the rescue.
The driver released the brakes opened
the throttle and there was another
burst of specfd which left the phantom-like
object far in the rear and
which brought the occupants of the
car safely to town. When Broadway
was reached and the car brought to
a standstill the two young men ex
changed ghastly glances-
"Never again," said the driver.
"You tell it Carty." said the other.
The two related their experiences
to the boys about town and the fol
lowing Sunday two or three automo
bile loads of Ghost seekers motored
to the scene arid a-gain the phantom
appeared. This time, however, all
fears were forever allayed when it was
found that the object of fear was noth
ing more than two white dogs that
had been hunting in that section of
the woods.
