spider web fashion, about the parlors.
A little bag of rice, which was thrown

string, except that of the guest of
honor, and to hers was fastened a
little wagon, decorated in white and
green, and Tilled to almost over-flow

Now the warm summer days
are here why not prepare to
spt ml fewer hours in the hot
kitchen? Why not prepare and
cook the dinner during the cool
morning hours? With a Caloric
you can do so? it is being done
in thousands upon thousands of
homes. The CALORIC Cook
stove lias completely changed
the method of cooking, reducing
woman's work and making her
life more pleasant every day in
the week throughout the year.
ii has reduced the cost of liv
ing, in fuel and food. And has
saved hours of kite hen drudgery
Which have been spent in visit
ing, shopping, reading or rest
ing. In many instances it lias
saved the expense of a servant
(thereby paying for iL,elf in a
few weeks). It has made possible
much better cooked meals.
We understand how impossi
ble this must seem to one who
has not used a caloric Cook
stove but some that were the
most skeptical are now among
the most enthusiastic users.
