A Steady Fire. The other day I was discussing with a friend the cause and effect of the" dear coal scare. He was much alarmed, for dear coal means dear gas, and, as he uses gas almost exclusively, it meant a serious addition to his weekly expenditure. I am only thankful," he said, I- I haven't still got the cook I brought from home when I was first married. She was a splendid servant, but she did'nt know anything about gas to cook with, so when I first moved into my flat I went to the kitchen with her to explain about the range. I lit the burners, but while explaining, a message called me from the kitchen, and I left. her, saying, I think you will find that it will work alright now, Martha.' I didn't see the cook again for four or five days. then happen- ing to go into the kitchen I said, ,\V ell. Martha, how's the range doing ?' To my utter consternation, she replied, 'Deed, sir, that's the best stove I ever did see. That fire what you lit for me four days ago is still a-burning, and it ain't even lowered once."
