House Gleaning is
Done Now With No
Damage to Goods
The vacuum clenner Is experiencing Its
busiest season Just now, when rugs,
moldings, cushions, beds and all must
bo made to mtmsuro up to tho standard
of tho "clean house."
"1 wish that I hud a vacuum cleaner
to use on those rugs," sighs the lady
who renlUos that her spring task Is not
an easy one. "Now I will ha,vo to both
beat and scrub, and that biggest rugj
upstairs has suffered considerably from
the winter's wear; It Is really a very good
subject for a prize fighter to work on."
Those who have substituted .tho vacuum
cleaner for all this manual labor liavo
gained in not only saving thelr own
strength, but much of tho fabric of
household furlshlngs comes out bettor
preserved by tho gentlo action of BUctlon
than It does by the dust scattering pro
cess of beating.
The Krantz Premier, sold by tho John
Uussle Hardware company, .Cum

demands of many homes becauso of its
low price and light weight. '
Too Much from
'"Well, well, what'B tho-matter with tho

claims tho busy man who has waited a
full half mlnuto for connections,
From his tono ho has no further use
fopieuch n slow forking article, but you
see him cling to It for dear life and re
rnember that tho reason ho expects so
much from tho telephone Is because he
generally gets It.

POINTS FORJOME BUILDER
Six Considerations to Remember
When Fixing Up House.
MANY ADVANTAGES DERIVED

Sinkers of Humes Lnok nnd Nott
York JInRntlnp Alma to
In a recent Issue, a New York maga
zine presented six fundamental advan
tages of electricity. Safety, economy,
control, adaptability, purity and health,
and commented on them as follows:
"So many accidents happen due to the
use of old-time illumlnants that the pub
lic havo become quite accustomed to
these announcements, and seldom apply
the danRcr to themselves.
"Health Is the next feature. The tllu
mlnant that carries tho light Into your
home without destroying: the oxygen of
the air, which is of vital Importance,
naturally has a decided advantage.
"Electricity- cannot be adulterated. Tho
meter measures tho energy exactly.
Should you fall to get good light, full
voltage, tho meter will not charge you
for this lack of light.
"In architecture, in adaptability, there
Is no comparison of electricity with other
forms of Illumination. It will meot any
situation, anywhere, at any time.
"Heating by electricity Is mora ex
pensive than by gas or by coal, when
mero energy If measured. But the heat
can bo applied at any given degreo wher
ever and whenever It Is wanted. And
then the expense can be Instantly
stopped. The control of electricity is
lett for tho button or tho knob.
"Tho economy of electricity is of de
cided importance, Electricity can be
turned on or off, and waste avoided In
stantly. Electric energy in the form of
light, heat and power can be more defi
"No other form of service can equat
electricity. Hence, no other ptan of heat,
light and power can bo conscientiously
compared in price with that of electric
ity," Over the Gnu Ilontp.
There was a man in our town,
(Today they buried him)
He gained himself a harp and crown
by blowing out the glim.
No need a moral hero to write
'Tis easily inferred;
If he had used Electric Light
It wouldn't havo occurred.
Advantages if Living in a Homsi Wired for Electritity Are Numerous

remember that we can move you better Bafer, and moro satisfactorily. OUH BKKVICK IS UN

No Snitching Time
When the Modern
Look is Employed
The electric time rocordlng lock gives
to the proprietor or manager of any store,
shop or establishment a printed record
of tho exact times any door to which it Is
attached is unlocked or locked, and who

of a lock nnd a recorder, With the lock
are six keys, numbered from one to six.
Tho recorder is n small automatic print
ing machine connected with tho lock by
electric wire. The recorder may be kept

ager, or placed anywhere In the building.
Whenever the lock Is turned by anyone
entering or leaving tho shop, tho re
corder prints automatically tho number
of tho key, whether "In" or "out," and
the time. For example. If tho employe
carrying key No,t B opens tho store In
the morning, the 'record will show K 6
In Oct. 8, 7:00 A. M 1912.
A watchman's key may be used If do
Bind that will make a record each time
It is lnsertod, but will not turn the lock,
recording W Oct. S, 2:t0 A. M., 1912. The
record Is printed on paper ribbon three
Inches wide, automatically carried for
ward as needed.

Thoro aro always places whero dust and

of tho Inconvonloncc, but with the differ

the tops of doors, plato rails and tho tops
of plcturo frames.
"I really do not mind doing my own
cleaning nowadays," said a young house
keeper, "since I havo an etectrlo vacuum
cleaner. I go over tho house with It
and there la no dust stirred up. All dirt
and germs aro drawn into a bag, I can

I would not part with my electric vacuum
