boiler. and combines the uses of the old
fashioned stove, the hot-air furnace, and
the elaborate hotwater heating systems
used in large mansions.
, This radiator-boiler is not as large as
many base-burning stoves. It can be
set iip in the parlor or living room just
as a stove, and more attractive. The
trimmings are in nickel, and the body
can be' painted or enameled in any shade
desired as a stove cannot.
From the radiator-boiler runs the
piping, either in view or hidden in walls
and partitions, to as many rooms as are
to be heated. The radiator-boiler itself
has a heating surface, so that it heats
the room in which it stands but un
like a stove, it cannot overheat a room.
One very 'attractive feature to coun
try dwellers is that the new heating . chased this
plant does not nave 10 De set m c-euar

with the rooms it is to heat.. In the
past, farm houses have been '."heated
either with stoves or hot-air "furnaces,
kept up in each; or one stove was ex
In the case of stoves, there was either
a stove for keach room, with a fire to be
pected to heat several rooms, which it
did by making one too hot and leaving
the others too cold. The hot-air tur
nace. of course, had to be in the cellar.
This new radiator-boiler, the standard
future heating plant of the farm home,
requires no cellar and but one fire,
which takes no more fuel than the or
dinary base burner and heats all the
rooms in the house to the same temperature.

definite step toward City ownership
of water, lights 'and sewerage was tak
cn by the Board of Aldermen of Eliza
betfTcify at a special meeting held Mon
day night, when resolutions were pass
ed endorsing the .compulsory sewerage
olan. which would do away with th4
present insanitary surface toilets now
here in large numbers; and authorizing
the City Manager to make a preliminary
estimates as to the value of the sewer,
water and electric light plants, witn a
view to the purchase of same by -the
city, so that compulsory sewerage might
be given to the city.
The new State sanitary law which
went into effect October 1st vill re
quire tiie complete rebuilding or re
modeling of practicably every surface
toilet in the city, at a cost to the pr,
perty owners of many thousands of dol
lars, and it is believed that compulsory
sewerage will not only be far more ef
fective, but actually cheaper in the long
run. in oraer to put compulsory sew
erage into effect, it would be necessary
to install several miles of seyer mains
in sections of the city not now reached
by the present mains, and this the Wa
ter Co. is unwilling to do on account
of ' the expense involved.
The Water and Sewer companies pro
pose a plan of arbitration which includes
the appointment of a committee of
three, one member to be selected by
the Board of Aldrmen, a second by
th two companies, amd he third to be
'chosen by other two members of the
committee. The plan specifies that the
price agreed .upon by any two members
of the committee will be binding upon
both the city and the Water and Light
companies. No action has yet been
taken upon this proposal by the Board
of Aldermen, but it is probable that the
matter will be taken up again Monday
night at the regular monthly meeting
of the Board.
