Economy in Home
By Lighting with
Tho economy of electric lighting Is very
near to the hearts, and pocketbooks, of
all users of electricity for lighting pur
poses. It is a brood statement, and oni
that will surely cause some surprise,
when the electrician tells us that elec
tricity is the most economical light for
the home. If used right. "If used right,"
that Isthe secret and yet how few of
ua understand enough about tho mys
torlous current to use It at Its best ad'
It is not vaulting over the borders of
truth to say that In nearly every home
now using electric light the regular
monthly bills could be cut down fully 20
per cent with a llttlo caro and attention
and a llttlo more knowledge about elec
tricity nnd electric lights.
In nearly every house there are places
hero eight candle-power or oven four
or two candlo-power lamps could be sub
stituted for the sixteen candle-power
lamps, thereby effecting a great B&vlng.
These small candle-power lamps give
light enough for closets, stairways, cel
lars, hallways, pantries and woodsheds
or store rooms. Small candle-power
lamps have the double advantage of sav
ing the customer money when In use and
not costing blm so much when acci
dentally left burning. It Is well enough
to use the now high power lamps for
reading or where a well-lighted room Is
desired, but it is safer for the oyes and
better for the pooketbook to use less
brilliant lamps in rooms where a great
amount of light is not necessary.
Hall lamps or porch lamps which are
kept burning should be of not more than
two or four candle-power. Theso lamps
give ample light for so small a space
and really cost less than kerosene.

comforts - electric -1 service affords.

The woman who sits bofjro her modern
sewing machine, nnd with a gentle pres
sure of tho foot starts jup tho electric
motor which does nil tho haul work,
forgets that It was but a few years ago
that all tho sowing In this world had to
bo done by hand,
Ono motor-driven sowing machine In
twelve hours will sew a hundred times
moro than tho best hand seamstress
In tho world could do in a working day.
Even after tho foot-power sewing ma
chine was perfected It was not until
tho ilnvico could bo operated by a small
olectric motor that the maximum speed
,of tho machine could bo utilized. It
costs only about 4 cents for tho electricity
required to operate a modem sowing ma.
chlno for a wholo working day nnd this
trifling sum will drive the machine faster,
nnd keep it under bettor control, .than It
possible In any other way.
Sinn from mi Kleelrlenl Standpoint.
Sonio lnvrntlvn genius has discovered
that tho average man dissipates about
twenty-five kilowatt hours of , energy a
day In motion, muscular action, menial
exertion and heat rndlstion. This is equi
valent. It Is said, to a continuous oxpehdl
turo at a rate of about 100 watts or the
rating of a one-eighth horsepower motor.
In spite of his high temperature 08.8 de
grees Fahrenheit and large radiating sur
face, man's heat losses arc surprisingly
small about fifty watthours an hour, or
nhout one-half of the total oncrgy ex
penditure. As a heating dovlco tho aver
age man Is thus about equal to a sixteen
eandlepowrr carbon filament jump.

Not Difficult to Put
Eleotrioity in the
Home and Not Mar
Teople owning fine old homes did not
'want them torn up and disfigured by a
gang of electricians In an effort to Install
electrio light. For this reason they used
oil und gaa for many years, although
they realised that electricity was better
Unfortunately electricity has been with
us but a few years, at most, nnd' by far
tho greater number of homes In this conn
try worn erected lpfore tho udvent of
electric light. I Wis quite an easy matter
to Install electricity In a now building In
course of construction In this case the
wiring Is all dona before tho plaster,
floors and thn moulding are put In place.
When an attempt was mado to put In, a
network of concealed wiring In an old
house the result was anything but pleas
ing. Hut now all this Is changed and It
Is posslblo to wire the largest homes
without breaking the planter, nnd still
liave tho wiring completely concealed.
It can readily be Imagined that when cir
cuits can be laid across tho floor by rais
ing a stnglo boards nnd can be run In
the othor direction at right angles to this
simply by removing and afterwards re
placing a part of tho baseboard, the floor
ing need bo disturbed very little.
As for the outlets for brackets and
switches, baseboard outlets, etc., they are
secured by "fishing" the wires up or
