Cooking By Wire
Just aa Thomas A. Edison dreamed many yean ago ot the
time when everybody would be using electric lights—so the house-
wife has dreamed of a time when every one would cook with
V ■ ! I
This dream has come true so quickly that it la hard to be-
lieve that cooking with electricity is now an actual possibility,
nevertheless It Is an actual fact that an thousands of homes through-
out the country and In over MO homes right here In Texas house-
wives are doing all their cooking with electricity.
•When the first electric iron was put on the market people re-
garded it with much doubt, and thought it was an experiment that
would nover be commercially successful. Time has proven beyond a
doubt that the electric iron is one of the greatest labor savers for the
home that the electric age has produced.
The electric range is meeting with the same degree of popu-
larity, and very socn the great majority of homes will be using the
easy convenient electric method of cooking in perference to any
The manufacturers of electric apparatus, by studying the
points of convenience and effiency of all other methods of cooking
have been able to put on the market the electric range of today.
During the past year the Company has installed 332 electric
ranges, In customers’ homes, in 56 towns. This was done in order
to show the practicability of Electric cooking.
Actual data taken from these installations prove that from a
standpoint of cost, electric cookiug is within the reach of all.
We believe we have information available on any point which
may come to your mind. We want you to feel free to make inquiry
of us regarding this most modern method of cooking.
