The' Automatic Refrigerator fills a long felt
It has perfect circulation.
It requires no further attention than to keep
the doors closed and supplied with ice.
No need of cleaning ic out while supplied
with ice unless foods are spilled in it.
No lid to prove a nuisance by warping.
Ample shelf room, which is what you buy a
All parts easy of access.
Shelves enough to distribute foods properly.
No flues which are simply spaces foraccunu

whether or not they are "Cleanable."
The top is stationary and is very useful in many ways.
The Automatic is a roomy refrigerator. Contrast its
capacity with other styles when considering prices.
Everything necessary to keep in a refrigerator may ba
pat into an Automatic along with milk, butter and other
delicate sensitive foods', with absolute safety. This may
sound like a "Fairy Tale" to those who have bsen using

The pumping station at the reser
voir, which will furnish the bluff dis
trict of the city with water, is now
practically completed and the official
test will probably be made Saturday.
The plant has been run from time to
time duriDg the past week by Davis
company, which is installing it, and
nearly all minor imperfections reme
ditd. The pump house, which has been
partially desciibed in theso columns
heretofore, i3 located east of Twenty
second btreet at the northwest corner
of tbe storage bavin. It is a t-inle
story brick building, 33x30 feet in
grouud area, and has an stiic and
basement It is vtry nicely tinihed

iences for the comfort of those in
Tho pump sets on a solid concrete
foundation on the west side of the
room and there is room on the east
ml for another pump and motor of
the same size if it. ever becomes neces
sary to install them. Tho weight of
the pump is 20 ton.'. It is a three
valve affair and is tnppli'id with a 12
iuch p'pe. It is provided with a
pressure valve which can be set eo &s
to give any desired pressure. When
tbe ligure at which it is set is exceed
ed, tbe surplus water is run out of
the mains into the sewer. This will
bo made use cf ia case of fire. The
water is pumped into the main mp
plying th f.iaod pipe on Thirtieth
street and when it is full a vlvc at
the latter place acts automatically,
closing the main at the base till the
presMire is lowered In case the pres
sure is increased in the mains the
valve also closes and no water enters
the tand pipe. The pamp will handle
2 000,000 gallons daily. When tbe
stand pipe is full the pressure is
about 45 pounds per sq'iare inch, but
it can be increased to' 125 pounds.
The motor is about a 75-horse power
alternating current affiir made by tho
Westinghoune company. Iho wires
which supply it enter the building
through the attic and connect with a
current reducer in the southwest cor
ner of the room. By this apparatus
the pressure is reduced from a 2,000
voltage to one of 400. at which the
motor inns. Counrctirn with the
controlling switchboard is made
through switches at the ceiling oper
ated by means of ropes. This leaves
it impossible for anyone to come in
contact with a charged wire when the
plant is at rest. A pressure indicator
tells just how high the water is iu the
standpipe. and an automatic register
run by clockwork traces the same in
red ink on a dial. These dials are re
placed every day and may be referred
to if any dispute arises over the pres
sure in case of fire.
The work of laying a 12-inch sewer
pipe to drain the storage basin, which
has been going cn for months and
which is now proi eeding at a depth of
27 feet, will be completed in about a
week, as there are only about thirty
fret more to lay. The mud in the
lower part of the ditch has to be
dipped up in buckets operated by
means of ropes. The water has been
drained fr m the south filter basin to

this year to afford to put it into any old ice-box. If

By some people that black, blue and oxfords would

need most cartful tailoring, and for thi3 reason wo
