ELEIiTFUCITY IS RAPIDLY TAKING
THE PLACE OF HOT WATER.
Tho Electric Motor Has Experienced
Wrndorfiil Development Iti:liniy tho
Past Few Years Same of the Many
Purposos for Which It Ecrnisiies Power.
The advance made by electrical science
and application during, the last few years
has been so phenomerw! that it is hard to
defire its extent, and it is only when an
attempt is made to follow the develop
ments in any particular branch that an
approximate idea of its mighty progress
as a whole and its far reaching and ever
widening influence in the industrial world
can be arrived at.
From an investigation of one field alone,
that of the electric motor, it at once be
comes apparent that a revolution of limit
less extent is being eilected in industry
and manufacture. There can be no doubt
that the electric motor is the most simple
and effective piece of mechanism yet de
vised for the transmission and transforma
tion of energy in a trustworthy and eco
nomical manner for useful work.
It is quite possible that several of those
who read these line3 may never have seen
nn electric motor, yet it is none the less
true that there are today already in opera
tion in this country over 30,000 electric mo
tors of various sizes engaged in an endless
variety of occupations. One company
building motors reports that its machines
are now employed in nearly 200 distinct in
dustries, and that new uses are found
daily. This development has been seen al
most entirely within, the last three years.
GROWTH OF ELECTRIC LIGHTING.
From 18S0 up to 18S7 electrical engineers
and contractors had given their attention
mainly to the installation of electric light
ing plants in American towii3 and cities,
with tho result that there were some 1,200
central stations in operation supplying tho
arc light or the incandescent light, and
sometimes both. A great many of these
stations paid well from tho start, but ifc
was soon found that the lighting business
"- " iiuulououb-iuul ,, ii, suuiu
only be earned on during the hours of
darkness, so that a valuable plant often lay
idle sixteen or eighteen hours out of the
twenty-fonr. Yet the current which such
a plant could generate would lend itself as
readily to driving an electric motor as to
furnishing light in a lamp, and the same
circuit that conveyed it to the lamps would
also convey it to tho motors.
It was this faot that gave a great stimu
lus to the electric motor industry about
three years ago, and led to the perfecting
of what had theretofore been a very crude
and cumbersome piece of mechanism. As
is now very generally known, the electric
motor has but one moving part, the revolv-
ing armature, and by means of a pulley
placed at the end of the armature shaft its
power can be applied to any piece of appa
ratus or machinery known to the arts.
But up to I8S6 nearly all the electric motors
had been badly designed and poorly built,
and tho current that should have been con
verted into power was simply wasted in
developing heat, so that the machines rap
idly burnt out and otherwise became use
less, and were altogether too expensive to
SAVING IK MOTORS.
At the present time, however, there are
several electric motors in the market of
excellent design and workmanship for
which as high an efficiency as over 90 per
cent, is claimed, and there can be no doubt
that the rate of efficiency in the smaller
sizes as well as in the larger is tho highest
that has yet been attained by any piece of
power transmission machinery. Thus an
electric motor of one-half or one-quarter
horse power will easily show as high an
efficiency as that of another sort of motor
of ten or fifteen horse power, yet nobody
dreams of expecting a gas engine or a
Bteam engine of one-quarter or one-half
torse power to give anything but a small
return upon the. fuel applied to it.
Moreover, with the electric motor an
jnormous advantage has been the fact that
when it has been installed and connections
have been made with tho circuitH connect
ing it with tho central station, it is practi
cally ready that minute for work. All that
is necessary is the turning of a switch and
the current is instantaneously there. With
the steam engine, even when the steam if
token from the steam mains in the street,
considerable attendance is necessary, anj
in the vast majority of instances the stearc
has to be manufactured on tho spot, so that
boilers are necessary, iuvolving the attend
ance of an expert engineer, the supply oi
water and coal and the temoval of ashes.
Such steam plants also occupy consider
able space and throw off no small amount
The idea, however, with tho electric mo
tor is to concentrate in a central station
all tho inconvenience connected with thu
generation of steam and to transmit tha
inorgy in the form of current, so that all
the user has to do is to draw off the supply
as ho wants it, just as he would do in turn
ing a tap to procure a supply of water.
THE MOTOR IN NEW TORK.
New York city, to go no further, fur
nishes many interesting examples of the
manner in which electric motors have been
applied to a variety of uses. Wherever the
cii cuits pass they are tapped for power
purposes, and thus the central station,
which furnishes current at night for light
ing, is supplying current in the day time
for power. In the lower part of the city a j
large number of motors arc in use. These
are generally employed for ventilation pur
poses, though not a few may be found run
ning freight and passenger elevators. A
large number in tho section below Cham
bers street arc also to be found in printing
offices. In that section, too, and elsewhere
the motors arc employed in a variety of
other work, such as driving gangs of sew
ing machines, saw mills, machine shops,
drug mills, pumps, ice cream freezers and
In one of the largo confectionery factories
the electric motors grind up all tho choco
late and other raw material. A largo
uumber of motors are used by dentist to
run their lathes and other small machin
ry. The motors m3y also often be found
in barbers' saloons, where they not only
furnish ventilation, but in some instances
are used to run the rotary brushes provid
ed for the happy customers' heads. In one
largo office in the city the electric motor is
employed to run a little stamping ma
chine, which stamps thousands and thou
sands of documents every day with unerr
ing regularity. New York Sun.
A Metal That Melts Easily.
A metal that will melt at such a low tem
perature a 130 degs. is certainly a curios
ity, but according to The Iron Trade Re
view it has been successfully produced at
Syracuse, X. Y. It is an alloy composed of
lei'd, tin, bismuth and cadmium, and, in
weight, hardness and color, resembles type
metal. So easily does it melt that, if you
place it cu a comparatively cool part of the
stove with a piece of paper under it, it will
melt without the paper being scorched.
Another peculiarity about it is that it will
not retain hejtt, and becomes cold the mo
ment it melts. It is used in the manufact
ure of the littlo automatia-'tire alarms for
hotels, and which give en electric alarm
when the metal melts, owing to the rising
of the temperature by fire.

HE KNEW HIS BUSINESS.
How the Little Boy Took Advantago
A little boy who had perspired all day
bsgan to shiver in the rain. He was sell
ing buttonhole bouquets at ten cents a
bunch, but, though it was past midnight,
he had the greater part of his stock still
sticking in the board hung around his
neck in front of him.
A policeman in a rubber coat stood on
the other corner, and but for these two
Broadway and the cross street on which
they stood were deserted. The dripping
of the rain was suddenly drowned out of
tearing by the rapid approach of a "night
lawk" with two boisterous rounders in-
s'Ve, who got out at tho corner and disap
peared with the driver txihind the swing
ing doors of a saloon. The barefooted boy
followed them with a skip and a jump
across the muddy 6treet. He recognized
the fact that they were on pleasure bent,
and not in a condition to grudge their
The policeman yawned and walked
tlowly off to meet the roundsman, and the
street was silent again. Then the cab
driver came out and mounted his box, and
the two rounders rolled out after him, each
with a boutonniere in the lapel of his coat,
and the little boy followed them expects
antly. The rounders climbed and fell into
the cab and banged the door.
"Say, mister," cried the boy. "Say,
youse ain't paid me fur them flowers. Do
ye hear?" he shouted as tho cab moved
heavily forward. "Youso ain't paid mc
for them flowers!" .
One of the men leaned out and pulled
the bo3s cap off and threw it in the street
and laughed. The other man laughed,
too, and told the boy not to be "so fresh
nex' time, givin' avay flo-owers." And
the driver whipped up his horses, and all
three men whirled away with mocking
laughter. The boy sobbed and shrieked
and chased the cab as fast as his legs
would carry him. "Stop thief," he yelled.
"Stop thief, they stole me llowcrs." The
policeman in the rubber coat stepped out
in front of the cab and shouted to the
driver to stop, and the driver did so after
some hard pulling and harder swearing.
The boy came up in tears and explained.
"Here, you; pay that boy for his bou
quets," said tho officer.
"We ain't got his bookets," mocked one
of tho rounders.
"Yes, youse have," said the officer, with
righteous wrath. "'You're a nice lot, ain't
you, robbinga poor little boy of a few flow
ers. Pay up, now, or I'll take you in."
Tho boy wept and sobbed convulsively
and panted a great deal after his run. The
two rounders sobered up and pulled out
"How much?" said one of them, holding
a dime ready in hb hand.
"How much is the flowers, sonny?" asked
the policeman kindly. Tho boy lifted his
sad, tear stained face to that of the kind
officer, and winked interrogatively. The
officer knit his brows and then smiled ever
so slightly and winked back.
"A dollar a bunch," sobbed tho littlo boy.
Even tho policeman gasped, and the men
swore, while the cab driver looked down
at tho little boy with undisguised admira
tion. "Come, now," said the majesty of tho
law, "pay him his money or I'll run youse
The rounders looked at the night stick
and sadly shook their heads. Then they
handed out the 52, and the cab drove away,
leaving the little boy and the policeman
standing in the rain and eying each other.
The driver smiled and said to his horses,
"If that boy keeps on the way he's begun
he'll be flt to bo a cab driver in time."
"That boy's no better'n a highway rob
ber," said t'ac rounders.
"Sonny," said the kind policeman, sol
emnly, "thero's the making of a police cap

"I know me biz'ness," said the little boy.
