The modern houtewife knows the important part the range in the houtehold economy. She knows how vitally important it is to eliminate from the kitchen all possible work, worry and waste. And range it the soul of the kitchen. Its influence is felt every day and all day by the entire family. The Gurney-Oxford Range is a strong advocate of modern household economy. Not only does il cook and bake without disappointment or failure, but it is a positive influence for economy. It bums less requires less time; Modern woman demands in her. work modem time and labor saving ideas, and modern woman is right The Gurney-Oxford Range is the fruit of constant effort, research and experiment to make and keep abreast of modern ideas of efficiency. The Gurney-Economizer (which is licensed for, use only on the Gurney-Oxford range) for regulating the drafts by one action: the Gurney method of dis- tributing heat to all sides and of the oven: the improved Gurney grates, combine to make the Gurney-Oxford range the standard of efficiency and the foremost exponent of modem household economy.
