Niagara Falls Soon
To Be niuminated
By Electric Power
It Is confidently expected that within
another year the falls of Niagara will
be Illuminated with electricity and that
the power of Its Illumination will bo
tho greatest of any Illuminating project
in tho world. Once, for a few weeks in
1907, tho falls were Illuminated, and It
was a sight that will never be forgotten
by thoeo who gazed with wonder on the
mighty waters. Plans now under -consideration
provide for an Illumination four
times as great as this temporary Illumina
tion. The plan which haa In view the per
manent Illumination of tho falls of
Niagara contemplates two large and
powerful battorlca of projectors one to
bo known as tho "Gorge" battery and
tho other as the "11111" battery. , The
Gorge battery will bo composed of twenty
thirty-Inch projectors, together with suit
able apparatus for transforming and dis
tributing tho electric current. This bat
tery Is to be placed In a nlcho In, the
faco of tho cliff opposite tho foot of
Goat island, where its rays of light can
play on the face of the American" and
Canadian waterfalls as well as upon tho
"bridal veil" that" pours over the preci
pice between Luna and Goat Island. This
battery will also be abe to batho tlve
gorgo below tho falls In a flood of light.
The niche In which lights will be platted
will be ten feet high, twelve feet lon
and twetve feet deep. It will be pro
tected by a set of roller doors to pro
tect the machines and the operators from
spray, the lights operating through glass
panels when necessary.
Tho Hill battery will bo composed of
twelve slxty-lnoh projectors located on
the elevation west of the Queen Victoria
Niagara Falls park and near the trans
former house of the Ontario Power com
pany. These lights will play upon the
upper rnplds and the upper strotches of
tho river and at the same time be con
verged with tho rays from the Gorge
battery, Intensifying the effect upon the
falls and gorgo scenery. W. d'A. Ryan,
the Uumlnating engineer whose plans for
the Illuminating have been practically
adopted, declared recently that he had
every reason to believe that the project
will bo carried through during the com
ing, year, and that the falls will be Il
luminated by the first of July, noxt year.
This expression comes from n eignr store.
Roid phat a successful firm has to say:
"What effect do wo think a well-lighted store, properly illuminated windows
and electric signs have upon tho up-building of a progressive merchant's business?
"We can say that there cannot bo too much light used. A woll-liglttod store with
properly illuminated windows is a human bee-hive. It commands attontion.
"As to eleotrio signs, a live wiro merchant ain't be without one. An electric
sign pertaining to his particular line of mcchVandisc will increase his sales and prove
to the ipublic that he is up-to-date."

Tho measurement of temperature by
electric means Is called Electric Py
rometr. Such perfection In this respect
has been attained that, It Is claimed,
inch measurement 'Is applicable trom
near the absolute rero some 490 degrees
fahrcnhclt below tho ordinary zero to a
temperature of melting platlnunv more
than 3,000 degrees fahrcnhelt above icro.
Among tho methods of measuring tem
perature by electrical means may be
mentioned that which depends on the In
crease of electric resistance of a puro
metal with Increase of temperature.
Another method depends, on the produc
tion of an electro-motive force In a
circuit of two metals when one junction
Is .kept at a constant temperature and
the other is heated to the tempcrauro
which It Is desired to measure. Muny
electric pyrometers give a continuous reo
ord of tho temperature on a revolving
Illnmlnatlnsr the Thermometer.
In winter months porchllghts are sel
dom used for any purpose other than f6r
Illuminating 'tho steps leading therefrom
and a very practical use for It Is for
the illumination of tho thermometer on
It Is a decided luxury In the dark
midwinter mornings to turn on tho light
from Inside and read tho outside tem
perature, without going out Into the cold.
