Lightens Burden of Housewife.
To the housewife who is in ei w "t ked. and who finds the
burden of a family, especially as lo meals, weighing up,,n
her, the great Having of fuel may he one of the 1 . i t advan
tages of such n Un less stove. The fact that dirita r may he
surely cooked at a certain time without the b ast necessity of
stirring or watching or fear of burning, must take an Ines
timable load off the mother's mind, whih nomlzlng her
time to a marked degree.
The vessels used In cooking will be made easier to wash,
the food prepared In them will be made more nutritious and
tasty, nrrd when the housewife has once found a line upon
her stove, she knows at Just what moment dinm r will be
ready and Just how warm and appetizing she may depend
upon Its being.
Warm water may be had In the house at any hour- of the
day or night: milk for a baby may be kept warm in a vessel
of water; the heavy cooking of a day may he dune In the
cool of a summer morning. and perhaps the luncheon pre
pared for the workers of the family may be put Into a small
stove of tte kind which will give the night worker, espe
cially, the benefits of a hot meal at midnight.
Idea Spreads Through Germany.
In a number of German it I s the propaganda of the hay
stove Is being spread by means of popular lectures and pub
lic demonstrations. Interest has been awakened widely, es
pecially among the people to w hom labor saving and economy
are always strong Inducements. A hay stove has been put on
the market In Frankfort, but Mrs. Hack las expressed the
opinion that any person who can make a light box with a
tight lid can reach the highest possibilities of the hay stove.
