Of the many electrical heatlnp devices,
three nro especially popular among
Omaha housewives Uio electric Iron, tho
toaster and tho coffco percolator, lly
far tho most popular of these three Is
the electric flat Iron.
Tho electric flat Iron will, In a few
jtom, be a necessity In. tho home. Of
nil tho electric devices, It la undoubtedly
I ho most convenient. Connected to an
ordinary socket, bocomliiK hot within a
f(w minutes after tho current Is turned
on, clean and cool, necessitating; no
chanKo of Irons, it Is one of tho greatest
aids to wash day.
Tho clcptrlc toaster will make toaat on
the dlnlnit room table. With the turn
of u switch, tho colls of wire become red
hot In an Instant. Tho slices of bread
nro then placed on each side of these red
hot wires and In a "Jiffy" tho toast Is
ready to serve, piping hot. Tho toasters
aro vry Inexpensive, both as to price
and tho cost of operation.
Similar to tho toaster, tho coffeo per
colator may bo used on tho dining room
table. Within thirty-five seconds after
tho current Is turned on the percolation
process commences. Tho coffee Is always
hot and ready to serve.
Tho popular opinion Is that many of
theso electrical devices will not give
satisfaction that they will soon burn out.
This Is a mistaken Idea, To show their
confidence In electrical heating devices
many of tho manufacturers aro guaran
teeing their products, and aro willing to
replace any of the articles which do not
give complcto satisfaction.

ENGINEERS' CLUB HAS
The Engineers' club of Boston has an
electrical kitchen on tho top floor. To
meet tho demand for clean and whole
some cooking, at tho grentrst economy,
the kitchen Iiob been electrically equipped
In every way. Electricity Is used for
baking, roasting, broiling, grilling, fry
ing nntl all other purposes, except for
tho warming of ovens.
Tho kitchen rniiKo contains three largo
electric ovens, three electric frying ket
tles, a two-section broiler, a set of grid
dles and eight disk heaters. Each oven
and utensil Is controlled by a snap
switch, which gives nny desired degreo
Soliloquy of the
Kitchen Stove as
it is in Basementl
"As a kitchen stovo 1 have always hod
a feeling of being useful. An a base
ment decoration I have a feeling of be
"I have always been proud of tho effort
people have made to keep me bright nnd
shining, but my pride went before my fall
early this spring when 1 wns replaced by
u cool and collected Individual, who
shines of his own accord nnd keeps nil
his heat under his lids.
"I have Just heard that the new stove
has been tho success of tho summer. If
mere cooking Is success then I give up.
"It has always been In tho summer
tlmo that I have felt myself most promi
nent. But 'no ono has known that he
wns around,' excepting by the delicious
dinners that ho has cooked.
"I do not know exactly what they
mean by an electric stove, but If they
aro all like this one I da not seo why
I am In the basement and my rival up
stairs. I make both heat and light In
a room. Ho makes heat for tho cook
ing only. 1 gnve people plenty of healthy
exercise to clean nnd shine me. As ho
does not make or have any other bad
hnbtts ho gets no attention from any
body. "I cannot bollevo that I am doomed to
tho scrap heap. If I over got out of this
corner I shall cry vengeance upon any
qulck-heatlng, no-dlrt stove that ever tries
to dlsplaco me."
Imperator Has the
Most Complete of All
On tho Hamburg-American company's
now liner InipcnUor, which was In New
York on Its maiden trip last month, Is
to bo found the most complete wireless
telegraphic equipment yet devised. Not
only the ship proper, but Its motor-driven
lifeboat also are fitted with nppnratun
for communicating with the shore nnd
The motorboats have equipments with
a working rnngo of a miles, while that
on tho main vessel Is capable of receiv
ing and sending messages through a dls-
tanco of 1.G00 miles half way ncross the
Atlantic. It Is doubtful, therefore,
whether this vessel, If Its wireless ap
paratus Is In order, will over be beyond
the ken of Its owners.
Two reverse antennas ana two receiv
ing Instruments for long nnd short waves
suitable for transmitting and "catching"
nows and performing service In tho event
of disaster to tho Imperator, or some
other ship, are Included In the equipment.
The station on board the Imperator Is In
chargo of three operators, one of whom
Is ulways at tho key.
The othor electrical equipment of this
magnificent lnvlnthnn Is In keeping with
Its wireless facilities. Energy In devel
oped by five turba-generators and one
generator .driven by oil engines. This
plant Is situated well abovo tho water
lino on the deck to provide for emergency

off at night. A controlling switch In tho
offico of the chief of police enables the
lights to bo flashed on while officers uro
scouring tho streets.

There is magic in tho Electric Toaster.
It turns a piece of ordinary bread into a
glorious, golden piece of. toast right be

sets free other little fragrant spirits that
take hold of jaded and faded, tired and
sick tastes till thoy say: "Ura-m how
good it smells. I will have a slice of that."
