What if a delightful old fairy god-
mother. like Cinderella's, should walk
Into the kitchen some evening and
find you resting after a hard, long day
spent in the unending and pitiless serv-
ice of that fiery dragon, the cook
stove? This monster, like the one tn
the story of Andromeda, requires
a woman to be chained up for Its
benefits, and sometimes, indeed, it
exacts her life unless some gallant,
rich Perseus comes as hfer deliverer.
What if the dear old fairy god-
mother should wave her wand and
say: "I will loose these chains and
let you go once more free and happy;
I transform this monster now, oir the
spot, into a neat little box, with a
cook inside, at your service!"
If she should work the trans-
formation, place the kitchen lamp un-
der the box, Into which put the food
yon wish cooked on the dishes in
which It will be served, close the box
and the kitchen door. Go to see the
tennis match, the great game of
football or the latest orchid in the
flower show. Return when you are
ready, and you will flnd a hot, well-
cooked meal In tho box. all ready to
place on the table.
Can you imagine poor Anaromeda
saying: "No, old lady, no! 1 like to
be chained here. I love this mon-
ster with his dirt and his cruel ex-
actions. I will be roasted, burned,
broiled and stewed in his service, and
when he does not need roe 1 will
stand for hours over a sink scrubbing
ttfe metal pots he delights in that he
may have the vessels sacred to his
use, bright and ready when I must
again serve him.1
How foolish of Andromeda! How
incredible, even! Yet this Is just what
thousands of women are doing, while
that very magic box with the cook
inside is waiting to be bought and has
been written about and much used for
certainly 20 years.
The Aladdin oven has been before
the public quite that long, and yet
its advocate are like missionaries In
a far country who have such a pre-
cious message to deliver and no one
seems to understand the language in
which it Is spoken. I hope that my
experience with this really wonderful
invention may be of service to some
of the poor slaves of the cook stove
and incompetent cooks, and, like a
I siren whistle, pierce the ears of the
! deaf and Inattentive and cause them
to stop and listen.
I Jean Taul Richter says: "Only once
in her life does a poor woman hold up
study and submission nnd late,- her
head Is bent over her sewing or her
endless housework. Only when she
loves does she stand, upright and la
pushed out Into the sunshlno by lov-
ing. willing hands, for her short holl-
dav with her lover, before her head it
again bent forever." Now every wom-
an who does her own cooking ran hold
up her head like a betrothed maiden
all the year round.
For several years this Aladdin oven
has been used by a family of four
with such success, health, pleasure
and profit that now so great do Its
perfections seem lo them all that they
are ready to swing Incense and crown
it with flowers every morning as an
appropriate expression of their grate-
ful appreciation of Its labors In their
service. There It stands in the cor-
ner always silent, ready nnd efflcient;
no heat or smell, needing no overseer,
and working for them while they
play or sleep. 1 hope an account of
an experiment with this delightful
little cook may cause some other wom-
an to try it also.
"Hast thou two loaves. Hell one and
buy jacinths to feed thy soul." Two
poor women longed for tho unattain-
able, a house by the sea. their own
beach and garden aud their very own
view, with the Bolitude and rest so
much needed In this busy America.
This seemed reserved for the rich, for
where the beach and garden could be
had for a small sum of money no
cook would come on account of the
loneliness; yet to do the cooking them-
selves meant labor that would spoil
any holiday, for who could enjoy the
garden, the view and the beach If
she must give up the best part of each
day to preparing three meals with
the usual cleaning up afterward? How-
ever, they decided to try the Atkinson
A comfortable cottage was built,
three miles from the nearest village,
on the seashore, and the two Incapable
southern women who had never need-
ed to lift a finger in their lives for
real housework took possession. In
the south, although we complain be-
cause it is the fashion to do so, about
servants, we very seldom flnd It neces-
sary to do without tnem; there Is
always old Aunt Jane, who was moth-
er's cook, or Malvina, who likes a
job occasionally even if she is old, to
come and help. So it was felt to be
a great experiment to do without
even one servant; but the glorious
view, the dear little home, the free-
dom and the solitude, were worth the
The Aladdin oven consists of a box
with the shelves inside; under it is
placed a common kerosene lamp. The
heat is shut between layers of asbes-

door indicates the heat inside. The

The objections usually urged against
It is that It will not bent water for
household use. As well might you re-
fuse to go on the railroad because it
cannot go along on the water or use
the telegraph because It cannot carry
bundles or a furnace because, although
it uses tons of coal, needs an al
tendant and wastes much heat. It
will not do the cooking—which Is
really very thoughtless and inconsid
erate of the furnace. What the Aladdin
oven will do Is to take the place of a
cook, whose principal labor is not so
much cooking the food as watching to
see that It does not burn from the
fierce fire she kindles. However, so
serious does this objection about wa-
ter seem to be that 1 have not yet in-
duced one person to buy an oven
and follow my example. Yet there are
many ways of getting all the hot wa-
ter you want, and when you want it.
We have an oil stove and a wash
boiler with a spigot in it that gives
us an abundance of water.
The food that is roasted, stewed or
baked is best, as might be expected
from the slow cooking, and is so del-
icate and excellent in flavor that the
ordinary cooking seems coarse and
poor after it. if you must have free-
dom to buy jacinths to delight yewr
soul, perhaps you will not sigh for
delicacies that take much labor to
prepare and cook. If you really de-
sire them you can always make them
over an ordinary oil stove or In a
chafing dish, while the Aladdin oven,
in a dignified and untroubled man-
ner, attends to preparing the real nu-
tritious food for the day. Of course
those who can hire a cook need not
try one. Why should they, indeed?

NO BLESSING FOR HER.
Disappointed Youngster Discriminated
in Hia Praysr.
For several weeks, little Ralph had
enjoyed the use of a Shetland pony,
the property of a horse desler who
was a friend of the family. Hut much
to Ralph's sorrow, there came a day
recently when the pony was sold, and
the delightful horseback rides came
to a sudden end. The purchaser, as
Ralph found out by Inquiry, was a
little girl of about his own mature
age of five. Ever since his acquaint-
ance with the pony began. Ralph had
included him in his bedtime prayer,
and "God bless the pony," was an
earnest nightly petition. The first
evening after the sale of the pony,
Ralph hesitated when he reached hla
pet's place in the prayer. Then, after
a moment's thought, he continued;
"Please, God, bless the pony just
the same; but, God, don't you bless
the little girl what's got the pony."

Family Keepa Rope Constantly Ready

In the front yard of a home on East
Ninth street a rope dangles from a
branch of a tree.

were passing the house one morning.

"We, thai is—I was sort of curious
about what the rope on that tree is

"Why, that's Johnny's swing," the
young woman answered.
Out of the door dashed Johnny—a

his teeth in the rope and growling

Long ago It was found desirable to

question, serves aa a point of contact
between the firm and the workers,

cause of carelessness or other causes
are corrected; that the man or wom-
an has every chance for doing work
in such a way as to deserve advance-
ment and to see that it comes; to
protect the firm from the wasteful-
ness of keeping on the pay roll those
who fall to give a day's work for a
day's pay, in some cases adjusting
salaries according to capacity. Not
in the least in the nature of a spy,
