feature of the Savory roaster
the oval bottom, with the
nary flat bottom roaster the
moisture brought out of the meat
by cooking has no chance to ac-
cumulate and is burned and dried
up in the bottom of the pan. In
the oval this meat juice
flows continuously to the lowest
point of the bottom, where it is
turned into steam and condensed
on the surface of the meat This
condensation continues until the
roast has become heated through
to the temperature of the
in the roaster, when the
condensation stops and the brown
of the roast begins.
The Savory roaster is self bast-
and self browning. The
bottom is raised off oven
by the outside heat-retaining
jacket, which applies a uniform
heat to the roast from all sides

says it stands among the fore-
most of its kind in the land. It
is behind some of them in some
respects and ahead in others; but

No attempt will be made at

proved farming methods will be
discussed and the reasons why
these methods are better than
many of those now practiced will
be given. We are assured that
