Preserving time

and a cool kitchen

Make canning time a real pleasure this year by using a good oil cook-stove. It concentrates a steady, controlled heat directly under the utensil. Your task is shortened and your kitchen is kept cool, clean and comfortable.

To insure best results, use only Pearl Oil—the clean-burning, uniform kerosene—refined and re-refined by a special process.

Sold by dealers everywhere. Order by name—Pearl Oil.

[It is interesting how pear? peach? lemon? preserving turned into guava jelly making here! And also, notice how in America it seems the product advertised here was “Pearl Oil,” but here in Hawaii nei, it was “Star Oil.”]

Guava Season and a cool kitchen

The thing that makes making guava jelly truly enjoyable this year is the use of a good oil stove. It will make the heat appear right beneath the pot. Your work will be lessened, and your kitchen will remain enjoyable, clean, and cool.

For the best results, use only Star Oil—the clean burning oil, the uniform kerosene [aila kaulike] that is refined and refined again, using a special process.

It is sold everywhere oil is sold, in cans and drums. Ask for it by name—Star Oil.
