foot and a red flag substituted during
a fierce fight at a May day meeting

the world committed the act.

ELECTRIC MAIL BOX ALARM
Opening Receptacle to Deposit Letter

Against Any Thief.
A mall box arranged to ring a bell
when the postman deposits a letter is
an addition to the uses of electricity
for signaling. Besides notifying that
mail is being dropped Into the box.

Pocket Telephones for the Police.
A new and interesting telephone
system has been installed by the po
lice department of Berlin to facili
tate the calling of branch stations
and headquarters. All the members
of the department, uniformed and se
cret service, are provided with pocket
telephone sets so compact as to be
easily carried in the pocket or in a
small leather holder attached to a
strap. Contact stations are scattered
over the city, on fence posts, on the
walls of buildings and on trees In the
parks. The connection is established
by merely plugging the contact station.
Electric Driven Collier.
The United States government has
given permission for the equipment of
the 20,000-ton collier Jupiter with elec
tric motors to drive the propellers.
The instaUatlon is now being put in
at the Mare Island navy yard and will,
it Is hoped, answer many questions
regarding direct, motor drive for pro
pellers of large vessels.
Many Telephone Calls.
The New York Telephone company
handled 985,000,000 originating calls
in 1911, of which approximately one

Use of High Water Pressure Found
More Economical and Quicker
Than Steam Shovels.
- In building both Seattle and Port
land it was necessary to remove from
the face of the earth several sizable
hills. This work was done for the
most part by hydraulic power. That
Is, the hills, composed mostly of dirt,
were washed away by powerful
streams of water.
At Portland. Ore., electrical power,
driving huge centrifulgal pumps, lift
ed water from Guild's lake 400 feet
uphill and hurled it through 4-inch
nozzles against the great piles of dirt
and gravel. In this way the hills are
washed away much quicker, and
cheaper than they could be cut up
and carted away with steam shovels
and dirt trains.
While the hills at Seattle were be
ing washed away in this same man
ner a workman slipped and fell di
rectly in front of one of the streams
of water. In a flash be was hurled
against the embankment 30 feet away.
When picked up he was unconscious
and had sustained severe internal
injuries besides having several brok
WAFTS PERFUME ON AUDIENCE
Device Attached to Electric Fan With
Reservoir for Fluid Patented
by Chicago Man.
The suggestion that perfume be
wafted over the audience in a theater
has been carried out crudely by means
of a large atomizer in the hands of
. An apparatus for doing this auto
matically when attached to an electric
fan and for diffusing the vapor of any
fluid is the subject of a patent Issued
to Harry W. Forbes and Frederick
Linick. Chicago, 111.
The device attached to the fan con
sists of a reservoir for the fluid over
a perforated receptacle containing an
absorbent material, says the Popular
Electricity. Attached to a valve stem
under the reservoir Is a wing against
Vapor Diffusing Device,
which some of the air from the fan Is
directed. This crowds the wing over
and opens the- valve permitting the
gradual escape of the fluid into the
receptacle below there to be blown
away. When the fan stops a spring
brings the wing to an upright position
and closes the valve.
The electric hoist has' almost com
pletely superseded other forms of serv

electric service can be obtained. The
advantages of the electric type of hoist
are becoming more widely appreciated
by engineers of coal mining companies.

Thrift is a matter of habit to most of us. It is natural
to but few. The habit of saving may be a bit harder to ac
quire than the habit of profligacy but it's a far- better habit
and well worth while. Once acquired it means a competence
a something laid by for the inevitable rainy day. Save your
pennies, nickels and dimes, and you will be astonished to see
how rapidly they accumulate into dollars. Then put these
saved dollars to work for you. Idle money is like idle hands
Satan soon finds work for it, and the work will not benefit
you. See us and we'll show you how to put your dollars to
working for you. "We'll make them earn other dollars for
you. We have been doing it successfully for more than a'
decade. It is to our interest to advance your interests. The
working dollar is the dollar that wins. We make 'em work
for you, twenty-four hours a day and every day in the year.
