in my apartment. I want one now for my summer home. I think

of my friends, and they were aston

smell and smokefroman oil stove,and
thatitheated a roomjustlike any other
stove. I told them of my experience,
andone after another they got one, and
now, not one of them would give hers
up forfivetimes its cost.'"

heating milk for a baby, or boiling a
kettle of water, or to make coffee
quickly in the morning, but she never
dreamed of using it for difficult or
heavy cooking. Now—she knows.

more coal to carry, no more coming to the
dinner table ao tired out that you can't eat.

the room isn't heated. There is no smoke, no
smell, no outside heat, no drudgery in tha
kitchen where one of these stoves la used.
