THE PURPOSE OF A RANGE ' i jf " I have promised to be -perfectly f rank with you in writing these talks, and while I may divulge some trade secrets in doing so, I am going to keep my word. Interwoven with the facts presented, you can trace the little tricks that are resprted to by stove-makers and stovo salesman, that are entirely foreign to any points of the stove, yet are calculated to convince you of certain things. The first purpose of the range from the standpoint of the maker is to bo sold. The other purposes vary as much as the intentions of the maker. Maker No. 1 liigures. on selling you a rango only one . 'tithe. . He,ge,ts your money and you get trouble.. (" ' ' ' ' ' . i Maker No. 2 iigures on selling you a range, a lot of. repairs, and. then you still have trouble. ' Maker No. 3 sells you a range that gives entire satisfaction and pleases you so much that if the stove salesman had' not boen sq smooth, you would have bought the same make again. " ... " ' THE PURPOSE OP A RANGE SO PAR AS YOU ARE CONCERNED IS , POURrPQIuD. J i & -toil i ist Economy in Fuel. 2nd. Durability, r Perfect Cooking Convenience. .1' 'ii ft C 3rd. 4th, Qualities V: Now"ec'onomy inNful does not mean to wrap some asbestos around the -pipe slid 'coyer this asbestos with wrapping paper,-' and then try to make you ' ., .. .believe the atoye is a -fuel saver by pointing to the unscorched wrapping paper as ' evidence of fuel saving. Economy in fuel means how many buckets of coal will .... 'it, burn When you are using it in your kitchen. Durability is not pounding on a malleable top with a hammer. It is how long.will this range last doipg your work in your kitchen. "Will it warp? "Will ' it" crack? "Will it buckle? "Will it break? High class ranges are made with malleable tops and gray iron tops. The " malleable tops, ..belong to the class where the top is used as a talking point. To open up avenues of thought, if malleable iron has heat resisting qualities, as makers of malleable ranges claim it has, why do not they use it in grates and linings of their ranges, or tops of hotel ranges. Surely this is where i the great est heat resisting iron should be used. They do not dare to make these castings of malleable iron, as the same would not last any length of time 5 consequently, they use gray iron where the heat is greatest, proving it to be the best. Perhaps the most expensive piece of heat producing machinery made is the locomotive. If you will examine the grates of a locomotive you will ' find" them to be made of gray iron. The purpose, therefore, of a malleable top range is to use malleable top to sell you the range. Does it not necessarily follow that if it is better to make grates and lire boxes of gray iron, that the purpose of range whose tops are ' ( made' of "grey iron is the purppse of durability. . t Ask" your blacksmith, which will warp the puickest, malleable or cast iron. y ,,G'et. posted on what you are asked to buy. ' perfecting cooking qualities mean will the stove cook good, . wholesome '., food rigwwith you handling the stove? Not only in the hands of an expert who hasieen; trained to the stove, but can you take the stove and put it in your tr house an3 gevt perfectly satisfactory results. The baking of a sponge cake , ' upon 'which.evin lppO pound weight can be placed, and then the cake raise r ,gain, does not tell anything ,,so far as the baking qualities of a stoye is 'toncprmed." It merely tells nhe story of formula. It has this powes Vithiu ' 'itself ; the! Cake could be baked, just' as well in a dutch oyen, as anyother orn. J4. 5f '" J 1 . The next purpose of a range is that of . convenience. "'..Usually you buy range with a reseivoir. ' As nearly as I can figurd it out,, about 95, perceivt of the' people of this country are' right-handed j 5 percent "are left-handed. Therefore,-. it nacessarily follows that the proper pjaco for the resor.yoir'is bri the- right' hand of the range, from the standpoint .'of convenience'..' .Fro'pi another standpoint, it- . is very inconvenient for one's hand to come in contact with thejsharp corner 6f al'" stoye doori You are very apt to do .this where you Ijlaye; a warming ploset Using ' a drop oven door. Does it not necessarily folloSy'that thenurpose of the .range" you want, from the standpoint of convenience, shouldbe to have Idle byen 'oft the-..rl,., right hand of the' stove and a foil "'ivarming Closet 'Hopj instead r of a. ijpo'p', warming cIose door.

I have digressed somewhat in order-to make mypoint clear, but the' summary of the talk is, be sure the,, rnge you buy fr&s 'a purpose-..thjit suits it. That pleasure is all.yours. ;- .
