To ftet the beet results from your plpctrlf
current the flrnt wiring of your liixmu
ehould bo carefully planned. It la b mls
tukn idea to tlnt on the wlrln expense,
for any outlay hero will be amply repaid
by reduced conmimptlon later when the
current is turned on.
When a houe la planned spaces are h1
wayg provided suitable for the large tiecce

The Dining; Room.
Do not Install a 2-candlepower lamp,
topped by a heavy ornamental shade, over
the dining room table. The present style
effect may be secured much more economi
cally by using a lamp of the reflector type
consuming current equal to a l-candle-power
lamp, but throwing all the light
upon the table where It Is needed. Ceiling
light Is wasted In tins room. Provide floor
outlets for the electrlo table cooking now
so fashionable and convenient.
The kitchen Is usually stinted with poor
lighting and this la one place where light
should be provided lavishly, flood cooking
cannot be done In the dark. A good light
with the new filament should be placed
near the stove and another over the sink
to Insure clean food and dishes. Cheer
fulness here may solve a servant problem.
W'lrinir Closets and Cellars.
Free use of electric wiring Is good fire
Instead of taking matches or lighted
candles into closets, attic, or cellar, have
these places suitably provided with small
candlepower lamps. Their Infrequent use
will scarcely be recorded on the meter. A
switch at head and foot of cellar stairs Is
a great convenience.
Light halls from the celling with lamps
at an angle to throw light from end to
end. Well lighted stairs prevent accidents.
In the Bathroom.
tow power lamps are sufficient for the
bathroom. It Is a common mistake to al
low for but one outlet here. Two should
always be specified in order that radiator,
water heater, curling Iron, etc., may be
used In- a well lighted room.
Proper consideration of color values In
reference to light Is Indispensable to econ
omical use of current. The light finish
In bathrooms allows small candle power
lamps there; but a dark wall covering with
hangings means more current required to
brighten the room.
Besides the general llluminant in living
room or library there should be arrange
ment for reading lamp and piano light.
These save the general glow from cluster
electroliers which Is largely wasted.
A ceiling light from the porch controlled
by a switch within the door Is a great
convenience and is often safety Insurance.
One may "sign up" a comer from within,
callers may go with confidence, and in
summer reading may be enjoyed out of t

Revolving doors leading Into the Hotel
Amor In New York are now operated by
eloctrlcity Instead of by hand. A doorman,
whose duty it used to be to swing the glass
doors by main strength, now does his work
with no trreater exertion than Is needed to
press a button.
He stands in the hotel lobby some dis
tance from the doors. In his hand he holds
an electric button. When anybody ap
proaches the doors from either street or
the lobby the doorman presses the button
and the doors awing round. N
