FOR C O M P L E T E DETAILS ASK THE BE SURE YOUR NEW RANGE HAS ALL THE JlfaZt WHEN you buy a new range, don't be satisfied with one that is no better than the range you have now. Get an electric range--it not only has 1 all the latest improvements, but it will also give you far more and better cooking service than any on the market. The electric timer--to mention only one of the improvements--makes it possible to cook perfect meals automatically--without one bit of watching on your part. You can put a complete meal--such as the one shown in the picture, consisting of a roast, potatoes, sliced turnips, cranberries and apple dumplings--into the cold electric oven hours ahead of the moment you want the cooidng to start--set the timer and go away for the rest of the day. At precisely the right moment the electricity turns on, the cooking proceeds, and again at the right moment the electricity shuts off. When you return, there is a delicious, perfectly cooked meal, ready to serve. ·kOaly the Electric Range has ALL the improvements. Mrs Alice Engle Dead.
