The fear of a Coal Strike has hastened orders
for Gas Ranges and Gas "Water Heaters. They are
coming in rapidly, but not so rapidly as they will

And even if there is no strike, yon will be ahead,
because Gas is much more economical than any
other modern fuel with which to cook and to heat
water, and much more convenient.
